It's important to fix large gaps in your smile?not just for looks, but to prevent the significant dental problems that can occur if a gap is left untreated. A porcelain bridge is an effective and aesthetically-pleasing solution. Your dentist will begin by preparing the two neighboring teeth around the gap, then creating crowns for them with a prosthetic tooth fused in between. The prosthesis literally “bridges the gap” in your smile for a lasting, natural-looking restoration.
With a crown from Henniker Family Dentistry, you can fix a damaged or decayed tooth, and no one will even know you’ve undergone treatment. Your dentist creates a crown to perfectly match your surrounding teeth for a beautiful look that is indistinguishable from your natural smile. You can treat chipped teeth, broken teeth, gaps in teeth, and other damage with a long-lasting, great looking restoration.
Do you grind your teeth in your sleep? Nighttime grinding can cause teeth to chip, crack, and break and can also cause headaches and jaw pain. If you suffer from unexplained pain or tooth damage, you could be one of the many people who clench or grind their teeth at night. To help protect your smile, ask us about creating a custom nightguard especially for you.
Another solution to the damage and pain associated with nighttime tooth grinding is an NTI. While nightguards protect your teeth, an NTI has an added benefit… it could help break you of the tooth grinding habit altogether NTI teaches your muscles to relax as you sleep. If you are suffering from frequent headaches or damaged teeth, ask a team member at Henniker Family Dentistry today about whether or not an NTI could be right for you.
Your dentists at Henniker Family Dentistry will always aim to preserve as much of your tooth structure as possible when providing treatment. However, in some cases the best course of action to return you to optimum oral health is to perform a tooth extraction. If injury or decay in one of your teeth means an extraction is necessary, your dentist will quickly and efficiently remove the troublesome tooth and will discuss further treatment options to restore your smile. Although Henniker Family Dentistry does their best to offer you comprehensive dental services, there are some extractions that need the expertise of a specialist. We work only with the best oral surgeons in the area, ensuring that our patients receive the best possible care.
A root canal procedure is necessary when damage has occurred to the nerve tissue inside your tooth. Modern technology has made this treatment safe and pain-free. In fact, because nerve damage is often painful, a root canal can relieve your pain while also preventing further damage to your remaining tooth structure. Your dentist will begin the procedure by removing the soft tissue within the tooth where it has become infected and inflamed, filling the void with an inert material. The placement of a crown completes the procedure. If you are suffering from tooth pain, contact Henniker Family Dentistry to schedule an evaluation. A root canal procedure could be the answer.
When it comes to traditional dentures, a perfect fit is vital. Ill-fitting dentures can pose a number of painful side effects and problems in function, including difficulty speaking and chewing and painful mouth sores. When you trust your dentist at Henniker Family Dentistry with your dentures, you can look forward to a perfect fit. Your natural-looking prosthesis will help you look and feel healthy, while providing the necessary bite pressure throughout your smile.
For gaps in your smile that can’t be fixed by a dental bridge due to missing teeth, try partial dentures. Your dental team will custom design a removable partial denture to fit comfortably and to blend in with your remaining teeth. Your partial denture will be made from synthetic materials and from lightweight metals and will mimic your gum tissue and teeth to create a natural-looking smile.
