As we age our teeth are aging also. Fortunately, with the advancements in dentistry, we have many options for replacing or restoring teeth. The dentists at Aeris Family Dental are extremely experienced in assessing, recommending and implementing the best possible solution for your situation.
A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent way to replace missing teeth. There are several types of bridges and your initial exam at Aeris Family Dental will help to determine the best option for you.
Root Canal Therapy is needed when the nerve of a tooth is affected by decay or infection. In order to save the tooth, the pulp (the living tissue inside the tooth), nerves, bacteria, and any decay are removed and the space is filled with special, medicated, dental materials, which restore the tooth to its full function.
To assure that you and your family's overall oral health is maintained, regular dental exams are recommended. Aeris Family Dental recommends that you and your family have regular dental checkups every 6 months. This will allow the dentists and hygienists to perform a comprehensive exam to look for any problems or potential problems that may arise.
Dental X-Rays are essential, preventative diagnostic tools that provide valuable information not visible during a regular dental exam. The Dentists and Hygienists at Aeris Family Dental use this information to safely and accurately detect hidden dental abnormalities and complete an accurate treatment plan. Dental X-Rays are critical to the thorough examination process.
A composite (tooth colored) filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks, fractures, etc. The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed and then filled with a composite filling.
A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restoration.
Veneers are very thin pieces of durable, tooth shaped porcelain that are custom made by a professional dental lab. They are bonded onto the front of teeth to create a beautiful and attractive smile.
Tooth whitening or bleaching is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to change the color of natural tooth enamel and is an ideal way to enhance the beauty of your smile.
Replacement teeth that look and feel like your own!
A dental implant is a replacement tooth root that your dentist places into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants are an ideal option for people in good general oral health who have lost as tooth to teeth due to periodontal disease, injury, or some other reason.
