Family and Cosmetic Dental Services
The team at Trobough Dental offers a number of services related to family and cosmetic dental practice. These include patient examinations and x-ray services, checkups and hygiene services. As well, we offer a number of restorative services including crowns, root canals, implants, bridges, dentures, fillings, extractions, and fittings for mouthguards. In addition we offer cosmetic services, and patient education.
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth in order to cover the tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, and improve its appearance. The crown, when cemented into place, fully encase the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line.
A root canal is a treatment to repair and save a badly damaged or infected tooth. The procedure involves removing the damaged area of the tooth (the pulp), cleaning and disinfecting it and then filling and sealing it. The term “root canal” comes from cleaning of the canals inside the tooth’s root. While many people fear having a root canal done, it is no more uncomfortable than having a filling completed in our office.
A dental implant is a titanium post (like a tooth root) that is surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath the gum line that allows your dentist to mount a replacement tooth or bridge into that area. An implant doesn’t come loose like a denture can. These are permanent solutions to missing teeth and you can opt for one, or a full set of implants. They can also be used in conjunction with dentures to secure dentures permanently to your gums.
Dental bridges literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. A bridge is made up of two or more crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap — these two or more anchoring teeth are called abutment teeth — and a false tooth/teeth in between. Dental bridges are supported by natural teeth or implants. They are a great option for people who might not be a candidate for a dental implant due to bone loss.
A denture is a removable appliance for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. Two types of dentures are available — complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. Dentures have been around for a long time, and they continue to be a popular solution for people who need to replace all or most of their teeth.
A filling is a way to restore a tooth back to its normal function and shape. Material used for fillings is a composite resin (tooth-colored filling). When patients have cavities, the most common way to treat them is with fillings.
A dental extraction is the removal of teeth from the dental alveolus (socket) in the alveolar bone. Removing teeth is sometimes necessary to prepare for future treatments, such as implants or dentures. Extractions might have to be performed to remove an infected tooth, or save other teeth from becoming infected in the surrounding area. Most patients undergo a local anesthetic to freeze the immediate area, and the tooth is removed quickly and easily.
A protective mouthguard is a covering that is worn over teeth, and often used to protect teeth from injury during sports. Guards are individually designed and made with an impression in our dental office. In addition to mouthguards for sports, patients are often prescribed a mouthguard to prevent them from grinding their teeth in their sleep.
