Restorative Dentistry

Restore Your Tooth Structure and Function

Dental crowns improve the function and appearance of your damaged or decayed teeth. A crown completely covers your remaining tooth structure and restores your tooth to its natural shape.

Crowns are designed to support and match your surrounding teeth. Your crown will restore your ability to chew and help prevent further damage to your bone and gum tissue.

Dental crowns are made from a variety of material including porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM), gold, or ceramic. Each option is strong and functional for restoring your tooth and its appearance.

Restore Your Missing Teeth Gaps

Tooth loss causes unhealthy gaps between your teeth. Shifting and misalignment can occur as a result.

A dental bridge fills the space or gap caused by a missing or severely damaged tooth. Your dental bridge can also improve your smile confidence and often costs less than other tooth replacement options.

Dental bridges are secured by using your existing teeth or dental implants. Your bridge is anchored to your tooth or an implant on either side of your missing tooth gap.

A replacement tooth is attached to your existing tooth or implant. This forms a secure tooth restoration and restores your tooth function.

Save Your Tooth and Avoid an Extraction

Infection in your tooth root can cause tooth and mouth pain. A root canal provides relief from pain, eliminates the infection, and saves your tooth from being extracted.

Root canal treatment is more comfortable than its reputation. Sedation and treatment techniques are now available to provide you a comfortable and anxiety free procedure.

Tooth decay and disease are the common causes of a painful oral infection. You might notice increased sensitivity to hot and cold that can indicate the presence of a cavity or related infection.

A root canal removes the damage causing infection from within your tooth structure. The procedure provides necessary healing and prevents the infection from spreading.

The internal core (pulp) of your tooth is targeted by a root canal. The root area (canal) is cleaned and shaped to strengthen and promote healing.

A temporary crown is placed on your treated tooth after the procedure. When the area has healed a permanent crown will be placed to complete your treatment and restore your tooth function.

Dental Fillings That Naturally Match Your Teeth

Tooth colored fillings are custom designed to match the natural shade of your teeth. The treatment requires less of your tooth structure to be removed and provides a long lasting restoration for teeth that are damaged by decay.

The composite materials used will bond to your tooth surface. This saves time from the tooth preparation that is common with metal based fillings.

Tooth colored fillings can be used to replace your old, worn, silver (amalgam) fillings. They are also useful on the areas between your front teeth and on the chewing surfaces of your molars.

Contact your dentist in Macon about your tooth damage, infection, or mouth pain. Schedule a dental examination to discuss restorative dentistry solutions to restore your tooth function, oral health, and appearance.

General Dentistry

Protect and Maintain Your Oral Health

Neglect or avoidance can damage your teeth and gums.  Dental examinations and teeth cleanings can protect your oral health from decay and disease.

Your dental hygiene appointment is recommended two times per year (every six months). A professional teeth cleaning with your dental hygienist removes harmful plaque and tartar build up that you cannot remove with brushing and flossing alone.

The routine examination with your dentist diagnoses tooth decay, dental disease, and tooth damage before it worsens. A treatment plan will be provided, if necessary, to improve your oral health and to help you avoid future and more costly dental treatment.

Your dental hygiene appointment is designed to be comfortable and relaxing in our spa-like environment. Ask about our comfort enhancements including a neck wrap, headphones, and a paraffin hand treatment to upgrade your experience.

Accurate and Precise Treatment Diagnosis

Dental x-ray technology provides a more accurate diagnosis and treatment plan. Our available technologies are safe, time-saving, and precise.

Full mouth scans using Cone Beam technology provides a clear perspective with less distortion. You have the ability to view your images alongside your dentist and ask specific questions related to their observations and diagnosis.

Digital x-ray technology can save you time and costs with more accurate treatment planning.

Prevent a Significant Risk to Your Health

Undetected warning signs can place your overall health at risk. An oral cancer screening detects the common symptoms associated with the disease before they worsen.

Your oral cancer screening is quick and simple. It can most often be provided during your routine examination and teeth cleaning appointment.

Your dentist will thoroughly examine the upper and lower areas of your mouth and tongue, the insides of your lips and cheeks, and check your neck and jaw areas. Any abnormalities will be noted and biopsied to determine if further treatment is necessary.

Control Your Dental Anxiety at Each Appointment

Feeling anxious or fearful about a dental appointment or procedure is common. Anxiety controlled dentistry is your solution for a comfortable and relaxed dental treatment experience.

Sedation options are part of the spa-like atmosphere we create during your appointments and procedures. You will experience your dental treatment with much less anxiety and pain.

Anxiety controlled dentistry can include nitrous oxide (“laughing gas”) and oral sedation via medications prescribed by your dentist. Communicate your questions about dental anxiety, fear, or pain management as you schedule your next dental appointment and ask about our anxiety controlled dentistry solutions.
