Dental Implants

A dental implant is a post, which is placed into the bone to provide a long-term solution for tooth loss. They resemble natural teeth and can completely restore your smile and substantially improve your oral health.

There are many factors that Dr. Fay Nazari will consider prior to recommending your treatment plan, including: adequate bone support, healthy gum tissue, overall health, and sinus and nerve location. Often this evaluation is done in conjunction with the use of a 3D x-ray, Cone Beam Computerized Tomography Scan (CBCT).

Bridges

Dental bridges are used to replace missing teeth. Your existing teeth are used to create a bridge to cross the area where your tooth or teeth are missing. It is important to replace missing teeth to avoid shifting of surrounding teeth.

Dental bridges are custom-made to match your natural teeth. They can be made from gold, metal, alloys, or tooth colored porcelain to ensure that they are strong and durable. With appropriate care, your dental bridges will last for years.

If you are missing a tooth, call our dentist for a consultation. Besides the aesthetic disadvantage of missing a tooth, it could also cause structural changes to your mouth and jaw. Thus, making it difficult to eat or speak properly.

Crowns

Over time our teeth may begin to weaken and become more susceptible to problems such as decay, cracks, or discoloration. If you feel your smile isn’t what it once was, crowns can help you recover your smile and function of the teeth. Crowns are used to renew the appearance and function of a tooth. Sometimes crowns are used in conjunction with root canal therapy, dental implants, or as an anchor for a bridge.

Crowns are typically made from porcelain in order to maintain a natural look and feel. Porcelain can easily be matched to the shade of your other teeth. Most crowns can be fabricated in as little as one visit. Once the treatment is complete, you will be able to enjoy your new smile.

Dentures

Dentures are recommended for those who wish to replace all or most of their teeth. They are custom-made to provide a natural appearance and comfortable fit in your mouth. Our dentures will restore your appearance and confidence, which will allow you to smile freely.

Depending on each individual case, patients may receive full or partial dentures:

Conventional Full Dentures –Removal of unrestorable teeth that might be valuable to your oral health, depending on the existing infection. Once the teeth are removed, we must wait for your gums and bone to heal from the extractions. Treatment may take about 2-3 months. When your dentures are placed in your mouth, denture realignments will be required as your mouth heals and the bone reshapes. We ensure to make this process as comfortable as possible for you.

Immediate Full Dentures – Immediate dentures are placed instantly after your teeth are removed. Immediate full dentures are recommended for those who have suffered from tooth decay, gum disease or dental injuries. This process speeds up the wait time for healing without teeth. Follow-up appointments will have to be made to adjust dentures if needed.

Partial Dentures – Partial dentures are used to replace several missing teeth. It is a temporary fix, unlike a dental bridge. Partial dentures prevent shifting and erupting of the other teeth.
