Restorative Dental Care in Hendersonville, NC
Dental bridges can be used to replace one or more consecutive teeth. They utilize the support of your surrounding teeth the hold a prosthetic tooth in the empty space and fill in the gaps of your smile.
A dental crown acts as a cap that covers and protects teeth. They are used to cover damaged, misshapen, or discolored teeth, as well as hold dental bridges in place or to cover dental implants. Made of sturdy porcelain ceramic material, dental crowns strengthen weak teeth and blend in with natural teeth. Dental crowns are custom-fit to each patient for personalized treatment.
Are you looking for a more balanced smile? Replace the gaps in your smile with dental implants. Dental implants consist of a titanium post, abutment, and dental crown that are custom-fit to each patient. We will insert the titanium post, which will then fuse to bone tissue over a healing period of three to six months. After this period, the abutment and custom dental crown will be attached to the post.
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 & Partials
If you need customized dentures or partials to restore a full arch of teeth, we can provide this for you. We ensure that our dentures fit comfortably and securely into your mouth. Implant-secured dentures offer a more permanent solution.
Periodontal Disease Treatment
Our dental team helps patients with gum disease receive the treatment they need. Periodontal disease treatment removes bacteria and buildup from the gum line. We will remove any infected tissue to prevent further tissue loss or future tooth loss. To learn more about Dr. Jessica Christy’s periodontal therapy options, see Periodontal disease treatment.
TMJ, or temporomandibular joint disorder, is a condition that can cause teeth clenching and grinding as well as jaw pain. The goal of TMJ treatment is to relieve the negative effects of jaw pain and bruxism. Dr. Christy may recommend customized night guards or oral surgery to help reposition the jaw and avoid muscle strain. For more information on our TMJ remedies, see TMJ treatments.
