Choose From Our Many Options for Fixing Your Smile
Your oral health, your smile expectations, and your budget will influence which procedures you choose. They may include:
- Dental implants. Dental implants are used with restorations like dental crowns, bridges, and partial or full dentures to restore full oral function. Dr. Betts determines if you’re a good candidate for implants, then works with a local oral surgeon who places the implants. After they heal, he attaches a restoration to them.
- Dentures. Our lifelike partial or full dentures replace missing teeth. When attached to dental implants, they’ll function and feel like your natural smile. You won’t need adhesives to keep them secure.
- Dental bridges. A dental bridge fills gaps left by a missing tooth or teeth. Dr. Betts can attach a bridge to a dental implant for increased stability.
- Dental crowns. A porcelain dental crown can fix dental problems like breaks or cracks. Or, when attached to a dental implant, it can replace a missing tooth.
If you need a tooth removed as part of your mouth makeover, Dr. Betts can gently extract it. And if you’re nervous about any procedure, you can get inhaled sedation.
