Early Detection and Prevention
Taking care of your smile throughout your lifetime prevents many complications. Our practice takes preventive dentistry seriously. We provide thorough examinations to determine if any issues exist, while administering gentle cleanings on a routine basis. We ensure teeth are in their best shape to withstand a lifetime of use.
Patients with greater susceptibility to decay or other dental problems can receive additional preventive measures such as sealants and fluoride treatment. Sealants protect teeth with deep fissures from developing decay in areas that are difficult to clean. Fluoride provides teeth with the natural building blocks it needs to remineralize and bolster its strength. Fluoride also helps keep teeth looking bright!
Restorative Care and Maintenance
As we age, our smile can begin to show wear. Decay, discoloration, and damage from trauma can affect both the function and appearance of your smile. With the latest advancements in dentistry, tooth restoration is achieved with natural-looking results. Restorative options offered at Emerald Coast Dentistry include:
- Crowns restore the structure of a tooth damaged by decay or trauma. A porcelain cap protects the natural tooth from further issues while restoring its structure and function.
- Bridges replace up to two teeth using a prosthetic made to mimic your natural teeth. This procedure requires altering adjacent teeth to place crowns which secure the prosthetic in place.
- Dentures appropriate for individuals who have no healthy teeth remaining or are missing several teeth throughout their smile. Full or partial dentures are proven replacements for missing teeth that provide some functional benefits.
- Dental Implants are the comprehensive replacement for missing teeth. Able to renew your smile whether you need to replace a single tooth or an entire arch, dental implants restore both the tooth’s root and crown for natural-feeling and truly healthy results.
