To ensure overall oral health, missing or damaged teeth need to be replaced or restored by a licensed dentist. At Olson Family Dental, you will be provided with a personalized treatment plan that is right for you to get your smile back to its best. Read below about some of the restorative services we offer.
Fillings are used to restore areas of your tooth affected by decay. At Olson Family Dental we use composite (tooth-colored) materials to "fill in" the surface of the tooth after all decay has been removed.
A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens the tooth structure, giving the tooth a longer life than it would have if restored by fillings or other types of restorations.
A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is one of the traditional dental methods for replacing missing teeth.
Dentures are a "replacement" option for missing teeth. There are two variations of dentures: partial dentures and full dentures.
Dental implant restorations are a fantastic solution for replacing missing teeth. They are durable, permanent, and aesthetically pleasing. They so closely mimic natural teeth, you and your friends won’t be able to tell the difference.
A "root canal," or endodontic therapy, is a procedure available to save a tooth that is infected and would otherwise require extraction. There are many reasons that teeth can become infected, including: cavities, previous large fillings, crowns, cracks, trauma, and extreme wear.
A tooth extraction is the procedure done to remove a tooth that is damaged beyond repair from its socket in the jawbone. Extractions are also done to remove wisdom teeth that may be impacted or create future problems.
Many patients have had traumatic experiences in dentistry or have other anxieties about their treatment. For our patients with anxiety, sedation dentistry may be the answer.
