Savannah Dental Group is committed to offering a full range of dentistry services. Whether you’ve had repairs or need a complete replacement, we recommend continual check-ups to assess your gums and bone density to assess the surrounding areas associated with your implant.
When you have missing teeth, an alternative solution to dentures is dental implants. While dentures are removable, dental implants provide permanent new teeth to restore your mouth’s function and appearance. Dental implants tend to offer a successful and lasting solution to the loss of some or all of your teeth.
When your teeth are missing, it greatly affects your smile. At the same time, the missing tooth has the potential to negatively affect your oral hygiene because of unprotected gum exposure. Dental bridges are one of many options aimed at improving the appearance and function of your teeth by replacing the missing tooth or teeth. During your exam, we will discuss whether or not dental bridges are right for you.
A dental crown is a cap that covers a damaged tooth and helps protect or restore it to optimal health. Dr. Patti uses crowns to:
- Protect teeth from fracturing
- Protect teeth after a root canal
- Restore fractured teeth
- Replace a filling
- Cover prosthetic teeth for added protection
- Improve the appearance of discolored or misshapen teeth
Crowns are custom-made from porcelain to match the shade of your natural tooth. To create your crowns, Dr. Patti takes impressions of your affected tooth and sends them to a dental lab. Next, he makes recommendations to the lab on your behalf, such as specifying the condition of your tooth and whether it’s a front, back, top, or bottom tooth.
