If you’d like to turn back the clock and get your confident bite back, call Uptown Dental Associates at (505)407-8781. At our Albuquerque, NM dentist office, Dr. Ryan Shepherd, Dr. Marc McRae, and our professional team offer a wide selection of restorative dentistry options to fix your pearly whites!
The Importance Of Fixing Damaged Or Missing Teeth
If you are suffering from dental pain, visit Uptown Dental Associates as soon as possible. If your teeth have become damaged, we may be able to repair them and save your natural tooth structure. This will not only relieve your pain and improve your oral function, it will also save you time and money in the future because you’ll avoid more substantial dental procedures.
Missing teeth can also be a cause of concern. Gaps in your smile most likely make you self-conscious, but they can also cause serious issues for your oral and overall health. If you have missing teeth, you may be avoiding difficult-to-chew but very healthy fruits and vegetables. If your missing teeth are not replaced, your leftover teeth can also drift out of place, further compromising your appearance and chewing power.
Your Restorative Dentistry Options
Because a lot can go wrong with your teeth, we offer a lot of options for repairing your smile. Our dentists and team members have undergone extensive training so you can rest assured your pearly whites are in good hands. To improve your quality of care, we stay ahead of the curve through continuing education courses and use some of the most state-of-the-art dental technology available! No matter your situation, we have a service to help!
If you need to replace damaged or missing teeth, one of your best options is dental implants. Because dental implants replace your tooth roots, they provide a strong foundation for a variety of restorations. Using the All-on-4® method, we can even replace a full arch of teeth with just four dental implants!
Another option for a severely damaged or missing tooth is a dental crown. Dental crowns attached to dental implants can completely replace a tooth. Or, we can use a dental crown to completely cap a damaged tooth to prevent further issues and provide added strength. We also offer partial dental crowns, called inlays and onlays.
Dental bridges can also be used to replace your missing teeth. We offer both dental implant fixed bridges and traditional bridges. No matter which option you choose, your replacement tooth will blend in flawlessly with the rest of your smile!
If tooth decay has penetrated the surface of your tooth, infecting the soft tissue within, we can help with a root canal treatment. Don’t believe the urban myths – we use state-of-the-art rotary endodontics to perform comfortable, gentle root canals!
If you have a cavity, we will repair your tooth with a tooth-colored filling. Because it will be color-matched to the rest of your smile, no one will know you’ve had a cavity repaired! Say goodbye to metal fillings!
We also provide dentures options for completely replacing your pearly whites! We can attach them to dental implants for a firm hold or provide traditional full and partial dentures.
Patient Education, Dental Anxiety Relief
We will never try to convince you to undergo a dental treatment you do not want. Instead, we will clearly explain all of your options and allow you to make the choice that is right for you. So you’ll know exactly what to expect, we will also explain each procedure before we begin.
Along with numbing the affected area to prevent pain, we can provide comfort options like soft pillows to help relax you. So you won’t feel rushed, we can even provide extended appointments. We can also help relieve your dental anxiety with dental sedation options, including nitrous oxide!
