Crowns are prescribed when a tooth or teeth are too badly decayed, broken or cracked to be easily restored with a filling. Crowns are normally needed for teeth that have had root canals. Crowns are also placed on dental implants to replace missing teeth. Crowns can be made of porcelain fused to metal for strength and beauty. However, with new technology, crowns can be made entirely from high-strength ceramic and porcelain for beautiful cosmetic results.
Dental implants are posts or metal frames surgically positioned into the jawbone. Once in place, replacement teeth will be mounted onto them implants. Endosteal implants and subperiosteal implants are two types of implants. If you are missing teeth and interested in dental implants, contact Dr. Eric Ford’s office today.
Orthodontics - Clear Correct Aligner Braces
An alternative to traditional braces, ClearCorrect is a clear aligner system used to straighten teeth. Dr. Eric Ford will take digital images of your mouth and then map out a complete treatment plan. ClearCorrect works when users wear the clear custom-made removable aligners that move teeth a little by little. ClearCorrect treatment involves four phases with a new set of aligners worn for a three-week period. After wearing each aligner set, you will start to see some results and get that beautiful smile you’ve always wanted. The typical treatment time is 1 - 2 years.
Unlike a crown, which covers the entire tooth, a veneer is a thin shell that is placed over the front or visible parts of the tooth. There are two types of veneers, ceramic veneers that are produced by a dental laboratory and resin-based composite veneers. With proper care, your new veneers will greatly improve your appearance and increase your confidence for years to come.
Aesthetic dentistry is an area of dentistry whose goal is to restore the natural beauty of teeth. The main focus is color, position, and alignment. If you’re interested in enhancing your beautiful smile, contact Dr. Eric Ford’s office today.
If you have lost some or all of your natural teeth, dentures can be used to replace your missing teeth-improving your health as well as your appearance. Dentures prevent the sagging of facial muscles, which makes a person with no teeth look much older. Dentures also enable you to eat and speak normally, little things often taken for granted until natural teeth are lost.
Brush your gums, tongue and palate every morning with a soft-bristled brush before you insert your dentures to stimulate circulation in your tissues and to help remove plaque. Regular dental checkups are needed so we can examine your mouth and dentures to ensure a healthy and comfortable fit.
Endodontic treatment, more commonly known as root canal therapy, is necessary when the pulp of your tooth becomes inflamed or infected. The inflammation or infection can have a variety of causes such as deep decay, repeated dental procedures on your tooth, or a crack in the tooth. With proper care, an endodontically treated tooth function normally for years to come.
