Getting a healthy smile doesn’t have to be difficult. We are here to help.
If seeing our Holland, MI, dentist, Dr. Todd Brower, isn’t a normal part of your preventive health routine, it should be. Routine cleanings and exams are one of the best ways to prevent dental issues from arising and catching issues soon when they are easier to treat. Of course, here at Ottawa Smiles Dental, we offer an array of different services to meet your needs. Here are only some of the great treatments we provide:
Root Canal Therapy
If you have a damaged or infected tooth that is causing you serious pain then chances are good that you’ll need a root canal. Decay, trauma or infection that reaches the dental pulp will most likely require this endodontic procedure. During this treatment, our Holland general dentist will go inside the tooth to remove the pulp and also clean out the tooth. The purpose of a root canal is to preserve your natural tooth and to prevent an extraction.
If you have one or more missing teeth and you are looking for a restoration that is as close to a natural tooth as possible, it’s time you talked to us about dental implants. These little metal posts function like tooth roots and naturally fuse together with the jawbone to support a dental crown or other restoration, depending on how many teeth you need to replace. Dental implants do require surgery and can take up to one year or more to complete, but they are designed to last a lifetime.
While dental implants can be a great way to replace missing teeth, it isn’t always the ideal option for everyone. If you are looking for a fast and inexpensive way to replace all or some of your teeth, it might be time to weigh the pros and cons of dentures. Dentures have certainly come a long way over the centuries. They are made from more advanced materials so that you get a dental prosthetic that looks as close to natural teeth and gums as possible. While dentures do need to be replaced every few years, they offer a more reasonable price tag that is pleasing to our patients.
Dental Crowns and Bridges
If you have a tooth that has experienced significant decay, infection or injury, in many cases a dental crown will be placed over the tooth to restore function. Of course, a dental crown may also be used to hide cosmetic flaws like a misshapen or discolored tooth. Crowns may also be used to support a dental bridge, which is a dental restoration that is also designed to replace one or more missing permanent teeth in a row.
