Do I have to wait multiple appointments to receive a new dental crown?
Not at all. With state-of-the-art CEREC technology, the process of designing, creating, and placing a new, custom restoration can be completed in just one appointment, with no temporary crowns or “goopy” impression materials required. Instead, patients can leave that same day with improved oral health and a stronger, more beautiful smile!
I’m experiencing a lot of jaw and facial pain lately. What could the cause be?
While we can’t offer a concrete diagnosis without inspecting your condition in person, significant jaw and facial pain is a common sign of TMJ disorder, a potentially debilitating condition that’s caused by misaligned jaw joints. If this is the case, South Hadley office can provide occlusal splint therapy or occlusal adjustment treatment in order to correct the problem and help you get back to living your best, pain-free life.
What are my options for replacing missing teeth?
In most cases, our dentists recommend dental implants as the ideal way to rebuild teeth in a healthy, aesthetically pleasing, and long-lasting fashion. Dental bridges are also available as a fixed option, while patients looking for something more affordable and convenient may prefer a traditional full or partial denture.
Of course, it’s important to remember that no one tooth replacement option is right for every single patient. That’s why we ask that patients with one or more gaps in their smile visit our office for an in-depth consultation. During this time, one of our dentists will closely inspect your smile and current level of oral health, discussing your needs with you and offering personalized recommendations.
