Looking for advanced dental procedures? If you have damaged or missing teeth, our office provides the following treatments:
Crowns cover damaged teeth. Commonly done after a root canal, crowns provide stability and strength to a tooth that might crack or break.
A crown usually takes two appointments—one to prepare the tooth and make an impression, one to place the crown. Between those visits, a temporary crown is used. Crowns can be made of porcelain over alloy, ceramic, or gold. With proper hygiene, crowns can last for many years.
Dentures replace lost or missing teeth, restoring the ability to eat and talk normally. While there is a small adjustment period, new dentures can feel as natural as your own teeth.
There are many types of dentures available, including partial dentures for partial tooth loss. Our office is a major provider of dentures in Redmond, OR, and our experience provides you with the best fit.
Root Canal Treatment
Root canal therapy involves removing an infected nerve from inside the tooth. The infection usually occurs when deep cavities reach the living tissue inside the tooth. It can also be caused by trauma, such as a broken or chipped tooth.
During a root canal, a dentist drills into the tooth, removes the infected nerve, and disinfects the tooth. Then, he or she will fill the tooth to strengthen and protect against infection.
Our office is equipped to do your root canal in Redmond, OR, so you don’t have to go to a specialist.
Much like dentures, bridges replace lost teeth. However, they typically replace one or two lost teeth, rather than several.
A bridge uses two neighboring teeth for support, and it can be removable or permanent. Bridges can be made of porcelain over metal, gold, or ceramic. The material for the bridge depends on individual needs.
