Dr. Lassiter works with patients on an individual basis to restore the health, function, and aesthetics of your smile. Restoring your dental health and the appearance of your smile will improve your oral and overall health and well being. If you have been suffering from poor oral health, missing teeth or concerns about the stability of your smile, explore your treatment options below:
Restorative Dental Care
Restore the form and function of the teeth and gums with a dental bridge. One or multiple missing teeth can be replaced by this option. Dental bridges can help fill in the gaps left by missing teeth while providing long-lasting support. They also help support any remaining tooth structure, prevent teeth from shifting, help maintain a patient’s face shape, and give patients the ability to bite and chew evenly again. Dental bridges can be removable, fixed, or secured with dental implants for a more permanent restoration.
Cover chipped, worn, discolored, and damaged teeth with a dental crown. Dr. Lassiter prepares teeth receiving a crown by removing any damaged or decayed structure. When complete, the permanent dental crown is secured and polished for a natural look. Patients with missing teeth also use dental crowns for covering dental implants.
Replace the gaps in your smile with dental implants. Each dental implant consists of a titanium post, abutment, and dental crown that are custom-fit to each patient. This restorative solution not only improves the form and function of a patient’s bite but also provides them with a more balanced smile.
Dentures and Partials
Professionally crafted full and partial dentures replace an upper or lower row of lost teeth. Dentures rebuild the tooth structure and are color-matched to teeth for a brighter but natural look. Whether you benefit from full or partial dentures, both offer benefits. They improve the function of one’s bite, support bone retention, and help to prevent gum recession. Restoring lost teeth with dentures provides a more stable foundation for the mouth.
Gum disease affects more people than one might think. Also known as periodontitis, this condition begins as gum inflammation and can quickly snowball into problems like loose teeth and decay. Our dentists find the source of decay and work to find a solution. Treatments such as gum graft and flap surgery, scaling, and root planing are used to remove infection and provide a deep clean.
Do you suffer from frequent jaw or facial pain? You may have a temporomandibular joint disorder. TMJ disorders may cause symptoms such as difficulty chewing, lockjaw, earaches, muscle spasms, teeth grinding, or teeth clenching. Lifestyle changes, Invisalign, and oral appliances can be used to help alleviate TMJ pain.
