Do you currently have teeth that are hurt, broken, or even missing altogether? In these cases and many more, a custom-made restoration like a crown or a bridge can work wonders. For instance, a dental crown is designed to cover a singular tooth, both rebuilding its natural structure and protecting what remains of the natural tooth underneath. They’re strong, comfortable, and built to last for several years so that patients can feel confident about their full smiles again.
But what if you have true gaps in your smile? A high-quality bridge may be capable of filling them in. Bridges work best when they replace teeth that appear next to one another; dental crowns are fitted over healthy teeth on either side of the gap, and the restoration literally “bridges” the gap between them for a fixed and sturdy result. A bridge will keep your remaining teeth from shifting out of place, and it will restore plenty of power to your bite as well.
Did you know that nearly 92% of the American population will experience one or more cavities over the course of their lives? This dental problem is a common one, which is why the Jacksonville Complete Dentistry team has modernized their approach for treating them. Instead of traditional amalgam (silver fillings), we use tooth-colored composite resin for a more attractive and more conservative solution that blends right with your enamel. Better yet, its metal-free structure isn’t overly sensitive to changes in temperature!
Traditionally, dental restorations like crowns, inlays, and onlays have required at least two appointments of a patient’s time to successfully complete, which isn’t good news for people who have hectic schedules and little time to spare. If speed is your priority, our Jacksonville practice has a great solution! We now offer one-visit restorations with modern E4D technology. Over the course of a single appointment, your brand-new, personalized restoration can be designed, crafted, and placed within your mouth while still maintaining a high level of quality.
When you’ve lost several teeth or even an entire row, your life can be dramatically affected. Suddenly, you’re no longer able to enjoy favorite foods that require too much chewing, and you can’t smile and laugh with friends because of the embarrassment. Thankfully, our doctors believe that it’s never too late to regain a full and functional smile you can rely on. We offer several denture options, including traditional prosthetics that are fully removable for ease of use and more permanent implant-retained models.
Even just the mention of “root canal therapy” can send shivers down a patient’s spine – but is this essential procedure really that scary? In truth, the pain that most patients associate with it is the discomfort of having a tooth that’s heavily infected, which is what root canal therapy is designed to treat!
During this process, our doctors will access the inner canals of the tooth and clean them out thoroughly, replacing the original pulp with a biocompatible material and then sealing the structure shut. Not only does root canal therapy rescue countless teeth from extraction, but it also enables patients to continue to enjoy these very same teeth for many years to come.
When it comes to your priceless teeth, our team will do everything we possibly can to help you keep them healthy and strong. Despite our best efforts, though, extraction can become a necessity in certain situations, such as when you’ve experienced a traumatic injury or an area of decay has become so severe that regular restorative procedures (fillings, crowns, etc) can’t rebuild what’s been lost. Whatever your personal circumstances are, one thing is certain – you’ll always be treated comfortably and compassionately here at our practice.
Your third molars (also known as “wisdom teeth”) are the last teeth to emerge past the gum line and into your confident adult smile – but more often than not, this arrival isn’t exactly a happy occasion. Because of the limited remaining space in the mouth, wisdom teeth can easily cause dangerous overcrowding, infections, cyst formation, damage to nearby teeth, or even become impacted (trapped in the jawbone). If our doctors determine that these situations are likely to occur or have already occurred with the help of digital X-rays, we can remove these teeth for the sake of our patients’ safety and ongoing wellbeing.
