Suffering from Damaged Teeth? Here’s What to Do Next

What’s the first thing you notice when meeting someone? If you’re like most people, chances are you notice their smile. Is their smile clean, are their teeth straight? Or are their teeth stained, blemished, or crooked? Your smile – believe it or not – says a lot about you. 

With this being the case, it makes sense that you’d want to have a healthy set of pearly whites – and now, thanks to our implant, bridge and crown dental services at Franklin Dental in Fort McMurray – you can! 

If you’re in need of restorative dentistry of any kind, you’re in the right place. Because today, we’re exploring the various kinds of dental implants and how they can help you.

If that sounds interesting, then keep reading!

Restorative Dentistry in Fort McMurray 

We at Franklin Dental provide the kind of restorative dentistry that can rejuvenate your smile and enhance your quality of life. However, you may be wondering exactly what restorative dentistry is? 

Restorative dentistry is the process of restoring and repairing the constitution of your teeth, mouth, and smile. This includes procedures such as dental bridges, crowns, fillings, implants, and more. 

Dental Implants

In its simplest form, a dental implant is akin to fake tooth roots produced by platinum metal. Dental implants are essentially tooth root replacements. They offer a robust underpinning, or foundation, for both permanent and temporary crowns that are designed to be lookalikes of your native teeth. 

Here are some of the benefits you can expect from dental implants:

  • Improvement in eating and chewing
  • Better and more clear speaking ability  
  • More comfort
  • Enhanced appearance
  • Bolstered self-esteem

Dental Crowns

If you have a damaged, cracked, or chipped tooth, a dental crown is often the best choice as a solution. A cap that is positioned on top of a damaged tooth, dental crowns were created to safeguard and repair the form of your teeth. 

These useful commodities are typically made from porcelain, resin, ceramics, and metal.

Advantages of dental crowns include:

  • Repairment of damaged or broken teeth
  • Hides the impacts of teeth grinding
  • Strengthens teeth
  • Easy and simple procedure
  • Provides enduring support

Dental Bridges

Do you have a set of multiple missing teeth? If so, then you may want to consider a dental bridge as a possible solution. Dental bridges function by positioning a set of fake teeth in the vacant space within your mouth and supporting them with caps on the existing teeth on either side.

Unlike dental crowns that only cover a single tooth, a dental bridge is able to replace several missing teeth within your mouth. 

Some benefits of dental bridges are:

  • Provides a restorative smile
  • Helps improve chewing and speaking
  • Prevents teeth from shifting and moving within your mouth
  • Maintains the shape of your face, teeth, and jawline
  • Minimally invasive

Which Dental Implant Service is Best for Me?

These dental implant services can help to alleviate the pain and discomfort you may be feeling right now. However, it’s important to know which ones are the most appropriate for your particular situation. 

In order to determine this, contact us today to speak with one of our dental experts to learn the best course of action. 

We look forward to hearing from and serving you.
