Smiles Restorations from Your Houston Uptown Dentists
Patients who experience dental decay and damage may be more concerned with managing pain than perfecting their smiles, but at Houston Uptown Dentists, we don’t think that repairing smiles is just about form and function. No restorative dentistry service is truly complete without repairing the natural look and feel of their smiles. Dr. Juarez, Dr. Lent, and Dr. Lindskog offer patients a comprehensive array of dentistry services to repair any level of dental damage including fillings, inlays & onlays, tooth replacement, and dental implants all in one convenient location. Our team of professionals allows patients to enjoy even the most advanced treatment options in an office where they’re comfortable from dentists who they trust to care for their smiles.
Root Canal Therapy
Large cavities, fractured teeth, or broken fillings may cause significant pain when bacteria reaches the pulp of the tooth casing a painful infection. A root canal is a procedure Houston Uptown Dentists perform to relieve this painful oral health problem.
Root canal therapy eliminates the infection by removing any and all infected pulp tissue and disinfecting and refilling the interior of the tooth. This prevents infection from spreading causing permanent damage. Root canals can often be completed in just one visit. Upon completion, a crown is usually required to protect the repaired tooth.
If many of your teeth are eroded, shortened, or simply worn out, comprehensive restoration may be needed. Developing the best treatment plan is paramount in predicting and obtaining the desired result. We recommend a diagnostic work-up to evaluate gums, teeth, existing restorations, bite, function, and esthetics prior to determining the ideal treatment. Full-mouth reconstruction may be a great solution. These rehabilitation plans may involve multiple teeth or require restoration of all teeth depending on your needs. This type of dental treatment is performed in a systematic sequence and requires multiple appointments and phases that will be planned to fit patients’ schedules, budgets, and lifestyles. Treatments include dental implants, crown & bridge, or cosmetic dentistry services to improve the look, feel, and function of a patient’s smile.
Dentures & Partials
When multiple teeth are missing, a denture may be the most appropriate solution. Many patients find that a major advantage of dentures is the natural, healthy, and attractive smile they provide. A complete denture is a prosthesis used to replace all missing teeth. A partial is a prosthesis used to replace several missing teeth on a single arch. Both appliances are removed each night to be cleaned while you sleep. Proper care will increase the life of your denture or partial. Being fitted with a denture or partial may take several appointments to get the best results. These appointments are usually spaced out over the course of several weeks for optimal comfort and successful treatment.
