Tooth Loss and Restoration
Tooth loss affects almost two-thirds of adults over age 40. Gaps in your teeth can certainly make life more difficult, interfering with the enjoyment of meals and impacting your social confidence. Quality prosthetic dental restorations can make a world of difference to your health, comfort, and well-being.
Dentures and dental bridges can be a satisfactory solution to tooth loss, but if your appliance has an uncomfortable fit or is poorly designed, it is another situation altogether. Many patients come to our practice complaining about slippage, irritation, aesthetic concerns, and dietary limitations.
At White Pine Dental Care, we offer high-quality teeth restoration options to suit the needs of a wide variety of patients. Our team has extensive experience with prosthodontics (replacement teeth), and can provide a new appliance that offers life-changing benefits. Whenever possible, we recommend that patients consider replacing teeth with dental implants in conjunction with crowns, bridges, or dentures.
If you have loose or missing teeth, or if you are struggling with a failing dental appliance, White Pine Dental Care can offer you a return to full function, comfort, and peace of mind.
Restorative Dentistry Treatments
Our teeth replacement options include:
Dental Crowns – A dental crown can replace a single lost tooth or provide a protective cover for a weak or damaged tooth. Crowns are often used to add strength and aesthetics to a tooth after root canal therapy. Using our in-house CEREC® system, we can create and place a custom-designed porcelain crown in a single appointment. We can also provide an implant-supported crowns for qualified patients.
Dental Implants – Dental implants are titanium posts that replace the roots of lost teeth to form a stable base for your prosthetics. Implants provide the ultimate denture support, and are the one and only restorative treatment that can prevent shrinkage of bone tissue in the jaw after teeth have been lost. We can also perform /restorative-dentistry/bone-graftingbone grafts before implant placement.
Dental Bridges – Sometimes called “partial dentures,” dental bridges replace one or more missing teeth. Traditional bridges are supported by dental crowns attached to adjacent healthy teeth. We recommend that patients consider dental implant-supported bridges to avoid the need to alter healthy teeth and to preserve jawbone tissue.
Dentures – White Pine Dental recommends implant-supported dentures to replace a full dental arch of missing teeth. Our dentists can secure your dentures to as few as four dental implants, providing a far more beneficial alternative to the traditional denture appliance.
Full Mouth Reconstruction – For patients who are missing multiple teeth (or require extractions) full mouth reconstruction can restore your smile. In addition to placing dental implants, Dr. West can perform any necessary bone grafting or other surgical procedures. Reconstruction patients are often amazed at the end result – a beautiful, natural-looking smile and return to full function.
