While cavities and tooth decay are among the most common preventable health conditions, many Albertans still rate their tooth health as fair to poor. Whether you see dental visits as unnecessary or just plain scary, you’re not alone: 7.4% of Albertans are nervous about dentist visits. Our dentists in Medicine Hat will help you ease your mind about your choppers.
If your teeth are damaged or missing, don’t grin and bear it. Our dentists can perform a range of restorative dental services, from crowns to dentures.
When your tooth can no longer support a filling, a crown (also named a cap) replaces your tooth’s outer portion. Crown materials are either metal, composite, or porcelain.
Alternatively, suppose you have missing teeth in a row. In that case, a permanent bridge appliance is your best bet as it anchors your natural teeth or is attached to dental implants.
Our Medicine Hat dentists give you a choice between a traditional, resin-bonded, implant or custom-made bridge. Crowns and bridges are considered major restorative dental procedures and may only be partially covered by your health care plan.
A dental implant is a small titanium screw surgically implanted into your jaw. This procedure may sound scary, but getting implants to act as a replacement for dentures will give you a look, feel and functionality of natural teeth. Do you have damaged or missing teeth? Implants may be a great option. The costs of implants are generally cheaper than dentures and depend on your situation.
While people of all ages wear dentures, there is still a stigma associated with wearing them. Our team of Medicine Hat dentists will show you the latest technology that has improved dentures’ comfort and fit and has led to an increase in the different types of dentures available.
You may need a partial or full denture, overdentures, immediate dentures, or implant-supported dentures.
While you may be reluctant to take care of your hard, bony appendages, good oral health is essential for your overall physical health. So, if you’re in doubt about your next dentist visit, call our office in Medicine Hat. We’ll be happy to help you ease into the chair and get you a new set of teeth or improve the functionality of your mouth that will have you grinning from ear-to-ear.
