Fillings

Effective Tooth Repair with Fillings

Fillings are used to fill the holes of teeth that were infected or decayed. Teeth are usually filled with bonded, tooth-colored, composite resin. If cavities are treated early enough, fillings can prevent the need for tooth extraction.

Crowns

Enhance Your Smile in 4 Easy Steps with Dental Crowns

Tooth Preparation

Impression or Mold

Temporary Crown

Permanent Crown

Crowns are full-coverage tooth restorations that are used to cover a tooth that is likely to break or is too broken down to be restored with a filling. They are usually necessary after a root canal treatment or when a large filling wears out. If a cavity is left untreated for long enough, the tooth will likely need a crown replacement. When a cavity gets too large, the tooth structure breaks down significantly. Even if it is filled, the tooth is still at a high risk of breakage. Crowns are placed over the weakened tooth, providing strength and protecting the tooth from damage.

Crown procedures are typically done in two appointments at our Bradenton and Sarasota offices. During the first appointment, the tooth is cleaned and disinfected. Your dentist will also take an impression and shape the tooth, so the crown will fit correctly. You will be given a temporary crown to wear while the permanent one is being made. On the second visit the temporary crown will be removed, and permanent crown cemented in place.

Bridges

Preserve Your Smile with Dental Bridges

A bridge is a custom tooth that takes the place of a lost tooth, both functionally or cosmetically. Bridges are preferable over dentures when there are very few teeth missing, or when all of the missing teeth are on the same side of the mouth. A bridge is custom-made for your mouth to fill the space created by the missing tooth. Every tooth in your mouth is important. When one is missing, it affects the rest of your mouth. One missing tooth can cause all of your teeth to shift and “fall.” Together, all of your teeth form a supportive structure. When one is missing, the rest move, and this movement will cause misalignment of your upper and lower jaw. The extra pressure this causes can be extremely painful and lead to further damage. Fallen and crooked teeth are also more difficult to clean, increasing the risk of infection and gum disease.

A missing tooth that has been left untreated will affect the shape and appearance of your face as well as your comfort. The factors associated with a missing tooth (mentioned above) can lead to bone loss. As many of your teeth become loose or fall out, your jawbone will no longer be able to support your lips and cheeks in the same way it had. This will cause your facial structure to fall, giving your face an older or gaunt appearance. A bridge is meant to keep the structure of your mouth intact, so you do not have issues with shifting teeth or infection. Bridges may be made from gold alloys, porcelain bonded to a metal alloy, or ceramic.

Implants

Transform Your Smile with Dental Implants

Dental implants are advanced tooth replacement options that offer a permanent solution for missing teeth. They consist of titanium posts surgically placed into the jawbone, providing a sturdy foundation for replacement teeth such as crowns, bridges, or dentures. At our practice, we not only specialize in implant placement but also in the restoration of implants. This includes customizing and attaching lifelike crowns or prosthetics to the implants, ensuring they blend seamlessly with your natural teeth. Implants look and function like natural teeth, helping to preserve facial structure and prevent bone loss. They are durable, comfortable, and maintain oral health by integrating seamlessly with surrounding teeth. Implants are an ideal choice for restoring both aesthetics and functionality to your smile.

Root Canal Treatment

Revitalize Your Tooth with a Root Canal

A root canal is a procedure designed to save a tooth that is severely infected or decayed, preventing the need for extraction. During the treatment, the infected pulp inside the tooth is carefully removed, and the inside of the tooth is cleaned, disinfected, and sealed. This process helps alleviate pain and restore the tooth’s function. Root canals are performed under local anesthesia to ensure comfort, and modern techniques have made the procedure more efficient and less invasive than in the past. After a root canal, a crown is often placed over the tooth to protect it and restore its strength and appearance. A root canal allows patients to retain their natural teeth and enjoy a healthy smile.

Periodontal disease (gum disease) can cause teeth to become extremely infected. This can affect the health of the entire mouth. If the tooth or teeth in question cannot be repaired, it will likely need to be pulled. In this case, the tooth will also need to be replaced by a partial denture, bridge, or implant. Leaving an extraction site empty (except in the case of an impacted tooth), can lead to complications and further damage to the entire mouth.
Wisdom tooth removal is the most common tooth extraction treatment. Wisdom teeth are permanent adult teeth which grow into the corners of the mouth in our teen years or early adulthood. However, oftentimes, the mouth does not have room for the wisdom teeth. These impacted teeth can cause pain, infection, and other further damage. It is common for wisdom teeth to be pulled, even before they become impacted to prevent possible infection and complications.

Having teeth removed can sound like a daunting procedure. However, our dentists at Corona Family Dentistry are determined to make the process comfortable and easy. It is important that you also know what to expect after the extraction procedure. This will help the healing process go smoothly and keep you from experiencing further dental complications. Be sure to follow the instructions your dentist and dental team give you regarding proper care of your mouth after a tooth extraction.

After your dentist removes a tooth, they will place a gauze pack on the extraction site. The gauze will limit the bleeding as well as allow the area to form a blood clot to help in the healing process. Be sure to keep the gauze on the extraction site for 30 to 45 minutes after you leave the office. Once you remove the gauze, it is normal for the site to bleed a little more. To help the blood clot form again, place a warm, damp pack of fresh gauze on the site of extraction. Gently bite down on the gauze until you feel a slight pressure. Continue to place pressure on it for about 30 minutes. In the meantime, try not to suck on the gauze pack or move it with your tongue. If the wound soaks the gauze with blood, replace the gauze with a clean pack.

Once you remove the gauze and the bleeding has stopped, brush and floss your other teeth as usual, but avoid cleaning the extraction site or teeth around it for the day. The next day, you can once again clean those teeth as normal, as long as you are careful not to disturb the extraction site.

While the socket heals, rinse your mouth with warm salt water after each meal. This will keep food from lodging in the extraction site. Be careful not to swish water too hard, or the blood clot could loosen. When drinking, avoid using straws as the sudden water pressure might also disturb the blood clot. You may eat solid foods as soon as it is comfortable, but try to avoid chewing on the same side of the socket for a few days after extraction.

Dental Extractions

Expert Tooth Extraction and Restoration Services

If possible, your dentist will always try to save and repair your natural teeth. However, there are some cases when it is best for your dental health that a tooth or teeth be extracted. At Corona Family Dental, we do whatever it takes to restore your natural teeth and give you the best replacements and treatments if extraction is necessary. There are several different situations where tooth extraction is the best course of action. These cases include seriously infected teeth, damaged teeth which cannot be repaired by a filling or crown, if pain persists long after restorative treatment, insufficient space for a tooth, and crowding.

Dentures

Restore Your Smile with Custom Dentures

Periodontal disease and other factors can cause bone loss in the bones surrounding your teeth. This bone loss can be detrimental to the health of your teeth and cause your teeth to become loose or even fall out. If your teeth have become loose, or you have lost teeth due to bone loss, it might be time to consider dentures. There are many types of dentures, but all are designed to help you eat and talk regularly, just like natural teeth. Dentures can be an effective way to improve the appearance and comfort of your mouth, as well as boost your self-esteem.

Your dentist will examine your mouth and determine which loose teeth must be pulled and which are healthy enough to stay. Once the teeth are removed, your dentist will take impressions and measure your mouth to get the perfect fit for your dentures.

Immediate dentures are dentures which can be put in place immediately after your teeth are removed. These are convenient because they allow you to have teeth while your gums are healing. After your teeth are removed, the bone and gums which had surrounded them may shrink. If this happens, your dentures may need to be readjusted during the first six months.

It is important to keep your dentures clean by brushing and soaking them every day. When brushing your dentures, remove them from your mouth, and hold them over a bowl of water or soft surface (to prevent them from breaking if dropped). Refrain from using toothpaste as it is too abrasive for the surface of the dentures. Use a non-abrasive denture cleaner instead. Be gentle while scrubbing to avoid scratching the dentures, but thoroughly brush all surfaces, including the part that fits over your gums. After brushing, soak your dentures in denture-cleaning solution to sanitize them and remove any deep stains. With the proper care and maintenance, your dentures will last several years.
