Our Family and General Dentistry Services Include:
If added stress is being placed on your temporomandibular joints because of bruxism (teeth grinding), you might begin to experience chronic inflammation. Once this occurs, it can cause TMJ or TMD to develop. If you’re experiencing immense pain as a result of this disorder, it may be time to see your family dentist at Summerlin for treatment. We’ll examine your jaw and provide a thorough diagnosis before providing useful techniques to help you find relief from the pain.
If you think there’s no hope for restoring your smile, you’ll be happy to know that our office offers full-mouth reconstruction for patients with severely decayed, diseased, and injured smiles. If fillings, crowns, or tooth replacements like dental implants aren’t enough to fix your smile, our skilled dentists can examine your mouth and restore your teeth, bite, and muscles to give you a newer, more youthful condition.
Millions of adults in America suffer from some form of gum disease. Also known as periodontal disease, it can range from mild to advanced, and in the most serious cases cause bone and tooth loss. Not to mention, it can also be problematic for your overall health, leading to cardiovascular disease and reduced cognitive brain function. Gum disease therapy can remove the plaque and tartar buildup around the gum line, reducing inflammation and bleeding, and preventing bone from further deterioration.
If you have a tooth that is decayed or damaged and is in need of a filling, you may be thinking about the prospect of having a traditional amalgam metal placed in your mouth. Luckily, more and more dentists are moving away from metal fillings and opting for a composite resin that resembles the natural color of your tooth. With tooth-colored fillings, you can keep more of your natural tooth and have a beautiful, seamless smile. No one will ever need to know you have a filling unless you tell them!
If a filling isn’t enough to protect and restore the natural structure of your teeth, it may be that you need a dental crown or bridge. Damaged or decayed teeth weaken over time, and by allowing our dentists to place a necessary crown or bridge, you can prevent your tooth from being extracted and give new life to an otherwise, deteriorating tooth. Both dental crowns and bridges can be customized to match the natural color, shape, and size of your teeth, so you’ll hardly be able to tell the difference between your real and artificial teeth.
Missing teeth can be problematic for your overall health, as well as your self-esteem. If you want a solution that will give you a fully restored smile you can be proud to show off, look no further than dentures. Our office offers traditional (full) dentures, immediate dentures, and All-On-4 implant-supported dentures. Depending on your individual needs and budget, our dentists can work with you to determine which treatment is right for you.
