As a child, having a smile with missing teeth can be an exciting time as you go through your rite of passage. But that same toothless smile as an adult can bring on feelings of embarrassment and insecurities. To help you smile more confidently, Valley Dental Clinic is pleased to offer restorative dental treatments for patients in Strathmore and surrounding areas. Whether you’ve lost teeth due to an accident or disease, we can provide you with a dental prosthetic that flawlessly mimics the look and function of natural teeth. After evaluating the overall health of your teeth, gums, and jaw bone structure, your dentist might suggest:
Crowns – as a hollow artificial tooth, we can outfit you with a cap to help restore the look and function of any teeth that have been damaged but not lost.
Bridges – held in place by your own teeth or by dental implants, bridges are a form of dental restoration for clients who are missing one or more teeth.
Implants – while there are a number of ways to replace missing teeth, implants look and feel natural, and can be used to replace missing roots or support artificial replacement teeth.
Root canal treatment – if a nerve of a tooth becomes infected, we can still save the tooth by performing treatment to remove the infected, injured, or dead pulp from your tooth.
Wisdom tooth extractions – as your wisdom teeth come in, you may notice your teeth shifting or experience pain. To make more room and reduce the chance of infection, we can remove any impacted teeth.
Fillings – if any of your teeth are showing signs of decay in the form of cavities, we can provide fillings to prevent the cavities from getting larger and causing more pain.
Inlays and onlays – similar to a crown, inlays and onlays are cemented into place for teeth that are partially broken.
Dentures – in the event that an accident, disease, or poor oral health has left you with little to no healthy teeth, we can provide you with custom-fitted artificial replacements for your natural teeth and gums.
