A broken tooth doesn’t mean a broken smile. If you’re wondering if your tooth can be saved, we will find a way to say yes! Utilizing a digital x-ray, we can determine whether your tooth can be bonded and protected against injury and infection, or whether an extraction is needed. In case of extraction, a dental implant offers the kind of fit that naturally blends with the rest of your smile.
We all have heard and maybe seen hockey players missing a tooth (or teeth) but it could happen to you too. And while that may seem scary, this serious dental dilemma can be remedied with a skilled dentist. The first steps to take with your tooth before coming into to Hillcrest is to place your tooth into your pocket, a container of water of even milk and if needed apply ice.
Call us right away and with one visit we can treat and save your broken or lost tooth. Score!
Spending time with friends and family often means spending time around food, laughter and conversation. All of which you want to do confidently. When it comes to your dental implants, you want to be assured that they are secured and painless. We begin the process using macroview digital imaging to examine your mouth for natural blending with the rest of your teeth. During the implant process, a small titanium post is positioned in the vacant space left by missing teeth. These posts bond with your bones to provide the strongest foundation for your new tooth/teeth. The rest is up to you…spending time where and with whom you want to so you can show off your new smile!
Who doesn’t prefer a non-evasive option when given the choice? But sometimes when we open our mouths, before we even get to say yes or no, the need for oral surgery is decided for issues like dental implants, jaw correction, TMJ or wisdom teeth removal. Whatever your need is, our mission at Hillcrest is to get you back to the comfortable and quality lifestyle you live and love. We guide you every step of the way, explain every option and help you make the decisions that best suit your needs.
Does it keep you up at night? Is it your hot/cold temperature gauge during the day? Even with a few bucks of bribery under the pillow for the Tooth Fairy, no matter what your do, does your tooth still hurt?
There are many factors that can cause your pain – it could be a cavity or gum disease. The first step to solving your health concerns is scheduling an appointment with Hillcrest so we can quickly diagnose the root of your pain.
