Crowns and bridges
A bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent way to replace missing teeth. Crowns restore cracked or decayed teeth. A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size.
A dental implant is a metal post designed to replace missing teeth. The post is usually made out of titanium and is surgically placed into the jawbone where the tooth is missing. Unlike a dental bridge, an implant is permanent.
A complete denture is a removable prosthesis of white plastic teeth in a pink gum-colored plastic base that rests on the remaining gum ridge once all of the teeth in the arch have been removed.
Composite fillings are tooth-colored to blend in with the remaining natural part of the tooth.
Root canal therapy
A root canal or, endodontic therapy, is a procedure available to save a tooth that is infected and would otherwise require extraction.
Sometimes a tooth may need to be extracted, Dr. Morales, Dr. Garcia or Dr. Yazback will discuss this option with you.
