While the purpose of general dentistry is to help you maintain a healthy smile, these treatments are also important to support the function of your teeth and jaw. Consistency with general dentistry is essential so you can minimize the risk of invasive treatments in the future.
At Dental Design Group, we offer a full-service approach to general dentistry. Come to our office for a check-up and cleaning, and we will recommend the ideal treatments for your smile.
Dental bridges make it possible to restore multiple teeth simultaneously in a single treatment. A tooth bridge forms a natural restoration using porcelain materials that blend with the surrounding teeth. This prosthetic piece creates false teeth to fill in the empty gap if a tooth is missing.
Bridges are custom-designed to each mouth. Depending on the location of the bridge and the health of the nearby teeth, the bridge might be secured on neighboring teeth. If the remaining teeth aren’t strong enough, then a fixed dental bridge can be anchored using one or more dental implants.
This dental restoration treatment boosts your smile after tooth extraction. In addition to the cosmetic benefits, bridges are also important for function and protect against future complications. The dental bridge supports the proper tooth and jaw alignment, giving you full function for talking and eating while minimizing damage to surrounding teeth.
A routine visit for a professional dental cleaning might seem like another thing you need to check off your long to-do list. But as you learn about the benefits of a teeth cleaning, it’s easy to see why these services should always be a priority.
Schedule a professional teeth cleaning and dental exam with our team at Dental Design Group, and you will receive full-service care during your appointment. In addition to cleaning and polishing your teeth, we also perform a thorough dental evaluation to identify potential issues early. Then, an effective treatment plan can be created to minimize the need for invasive treatments in the future.
Our goal is to provide information and education during your cleaning and oral exam dental appointment that will help you maintain a beautiful smile for life. Regular dental cleanings are the foundation for healthy teeth and gums.
When a tooth is severely damaged, then a dental crown might be the only solution to avoid extraction. Crowns are custom-designed to fit over the top of the tooth, helping to restore both the tooth’s strength and shape. We use modern technology and careful considerations to design an ideal restoration to fit your smile.
The benefit of a dental crown is that it protects the remaining structure of the tooth. This treatment is often recommended after severe tooth decay, a root canal, or an accident that damages the tooth’s structure.
Often, a tooth crown is used for functional and structural purposes. But there are also times when a dental crown can be part of your cosmetic treatment plan. For example, if a tooth is damaged and misshapen, then a crown can correct the tooth’s appearance and improve your smile.
The quality of your sleep has an undeniable impact on your overall health. Did you know that the position of your jaw and tongue can influence your breathing patterns at night? If you are struggling to sleep, we invite you to talk to our dental team about sleep medicine and potential treatments.
Sleep disorders are quite common among adults, including sleep apnea. Have you been diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea? Then you will likely benefit from sleep medicine treatments.
Each patient is unique, which is why it’s critical to schedule a consultation to discuss your options with an experienced dentist. We can assist with both diagnosis and treatment for sleep conditions that are affecting your vitality and wellness.
When an extraction is necessary for most or all of your natural teeth, then permanent dentures are available for dental restoration. These dental prosthetics are custom-designed to fit your mouth, with partial dentures, complete dentures, and implant overdentures available – depending on your unique needs.
In addition to helping you maintain function when talking and eating, dentures are also beneficial for minimizing the risk of sagging facial muscles after extraction. Your overdentures will improve the appearance of your smile and help you enjoy a thriving lifestyle at the same time.
Traditional gum or tooth supported overdentures are the cheapest solution, using a design that molds to the shape of your gums with adhesive to hold the dentures in place. Or, many people prefer an implant supported overdenture that create a foundation to hold the dentures in place securely. Talk to our team to learn more about dentures over implants, and the different denture styles so you can find the ideal treatment to match your goals and budget.
Our goal at Dental Design Group is to maintain the natural structure of your teeth whenever possible. But there are times when it is necessary to extract one or more teeth that are damaged beyond repair. Our team will consult with you about the overall treatment plan, including both the tooth removal and additional treatments to restore your smile.
Tooth extractions are necessary for various situations, such as preparation before orthodontic treatment to alleviate crowding. Sometimes, extraction is recommended to remove a damaged tooth and create space for the placement of an implant. One of the most common types of extractions we do is remove the wisdom teeth if there isn’t enough room for the third molars to grow.
We use the latest technology and modern equipment to ensure your comfort during your tooth removal. Your comfort and safety are always our highest priority.
Whether a tooth is damaged because of decay or a chip, it’s important to use a filling to restore the strength and appearance of the tooth. A variety of issues can affect the shape and structure of the teeth. These issues can often be fixed using dental fillings as a minimally invasive restoration.
If a filling is needed, then we use a local anesthetic to help you maintain comfort during the treatment. It’s necessary to remove the decay or damaged part and prepare the tooth for restoration. Once the area is ready and cleaned, then composite materials are bonded in place. Finally, careful attention is used to shape and polish the tooth for an ideal appearance.
The benefit of modern technology is that these dental fillings are carefully crafted to match the shade of your other teeth. The result is a natural-looking restoration that will protect your tooth for years to come. You won’t be able to tell the difference between the natural teeth and your dental restorations.
When an infection moves deep into the root of your tooth, it causes severe damage and pain. Previously, the only treatment option was dental extraction to eliminate the infection. Now, advanced dental treatments make it possible to remove the infection and preserve the structure of the tooth at the same time.
If a root canal is required, the dentist carefully drills into the center of the tooth. This is the area where the pulp tissue is located. The treatment removes all connective tissue, pulp, and nerves to eliminate the infection.
The good news is that modern dental tools make root canal therapy as comfortable and straightforward as a standard filling. We can eliminate the infection quickly and effectively to save your tooth and minimize the risk of extraction.
The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) holds a lot of pressure as you are talking and eating. The optimal function of this joint gives you the movement you need for some of the most basic functions in your daily life. If problems occur with the facial muscles that manage the jaw movement, then you might be diagnosed with a temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD).
The most common symptoms of TMD include grinding or clenching your teeth. You might notice pain and fatigue in the jaw joint. Eventually, the pressure can cause damage to the gums and teeth and require dental restorations.
Most patients with TMJ disorders benefit from wearing a mouth guard at night. You can use the dental appliance while sleeping to maintain a gap between the bottom and top jaw, which minimizes the damage that occurs due to clenching and grinding when you are asleep. Our team at Dental Design Group provides services for TMD treatments, including custom-fit nightguards to alleviate your jaw discomfort.
