Keep reading to hear more about the possibilities, and then be sure to follow up and schedule your consultation at the Synergy Dental Center.
All-on-4 Dental Implants
When you are missing teeth, your great-looking appearance, your optimal health, and your self-assurance will also be missing until you decide to do something about it. Here’s some good news on that front: nothing is better for fixing such a sad scenario than our high-quality dental implants, including the All-On-4 package.This same-day restorative dentistry implant procedure will allow you to leave our office with a brand-new smile in just one day! Here’s the deal: Dr. Porter can extract any teeth necessary, place dental implants, and load them with a restoration all in just one procedure. This is a great option for patients who need to replace an entire arch or even an entire mouth of teeth.
Mercury-Free Dental Fillings
Cavities can pop up without warning, even if you are fairly diligent about your home hygiene efforts. In earlier eras tooth decay used to be filled exclusively with a metal amalgam, which is very effective but looks weird in your mouth and actually contains mercury, which is a concern for many people. Fortunately we can now use a tooth-colored composite resin for fillings. These new-style of fillings are far more attractive and probably safer to use than old-school metal fillings. For this procedure we will simply numb the affected tooth and create a small opening in it, getting rid of all of the decay in the cavity. After the decay is removed, we will then fill the hole in with that natural-looking composite resin.
Root Canal Treatment
The thing you need to know about us is that we always start with the most conservative treatment available and go from there. The other thing you need to know is that “root canals” aren’t that bad! If tooth decay ever reaches the soft pulp of a tooth, a simple filling will not be enough to prevent infection and ensure that the health of the tooth can be restored. In these instances, Dr. Porter will perform a root canal procedure that will rid the tooth of infection, replace the tooth’s pulp with an inert material, and seal it off again. This will actually relieve your pain, not cause it!
Dentures are better than ever. You can even opt to replace your teeth using implant-supported dentures. Removable dentures can sometimes be slippery and hard to control. Securing them with dental implants ensures that they stay exactly where they are supposed to be. You will be able to eat, laugh, and smile with confidence!
Crowns, Bridges, Etc.
Crowns, bridges, and dentures are restorative dentistry components that will help your mouth look, function, and feel like it would naturally, following tooth loss, a root canal, etc.
