Ceramic Dental Inlays & Onlays
Ceramic restorations are a superior way to fill a tooth. The benefits are that they conserve natural tooth structure, last much longer than fillings, are chemically-bonded to the tooth structure, and make the tooth stronger from within. The CEREC® milling machine is used to fabricate the inlay or onlay in a single dental visit.
By using the latest technology, the CEREC® machine fabricates an all-ceramic crown in one visit for your convenience. We still use traditional crowns fabricated by the laboratory when indicated. Bridges literally fill the gap created by one or more missing teeth. They are supported on either side by either natural teeth or implants.
Dental implants are transformative tooth replacement solutions that are designed to replicate both the white crown of your tooth and the root that’s hidden under the gum line in a lifelike and functional manner. Once the new “root” (the implant itself) has successfully fused with your natural tissue, the final step of this procedure is to recreate the missing part of your smile with a customized, metal-free dental crown. This crown will be designed to attach over the single implant in a way that doesn’t negatively affect the surrounding healthy teeth, creating a healthier, more conservative final result you can be satisfied with. In most cases, we will recommend having your new dental crown created through our state-of-the-art CEREC® technology, which simplifies what was once a multiple appointment process down to one convenient visit.
In the past, traditional amalgam fillings were the norm for treating tooth decay. While effective enough in achieving this goal, this dental material also came with pitfalls that could negatively affect both a person’s oral health and their sense of self-confidence over time. Today, our doctors are happy to offer a much-improved alternative: tooth-colored, mercury-free fillings.
This restorative option is crafted from composite resin, which can be shaded to precisely match the natural color of a patient’s smile a virtually seamless appearance. The material also bonds directly to the tooth for a placement that’s both more conservative and more durable. Because of the lack of metals, patients won’t even experience the same increased sensitivity to changes in temperature. With the right amount of professional maintenance and at-home oral hygiene, patients can expect to enjoy their tooth-colored fillings for 15 years or longer.
Root Canal Therapy
When a tooth becomes severely injured or decayed to the point that the vulnerable root and inner pulp is affected, root canal therapy can be an extremely beneficial procedure that protects the remaining structure from needing to be extracted. During this procedure, our doctors will carefully access the inner chamber of the affected tooth and thoroughly clean out dangerous bacteria and diseased pulp from the canals, replacing it with a safe, biocompatible substance. Then, the area will be sealed to reduce the risk of further infection. In many cases, our team will recommend the placement of a custom dental crown to restore the tooth’s function and aesthetic appearance.
Many patients become nervous when they’re told they need root canal therapy, but the truth is that today’s advancements in technology and anesthetic has rendered this procedure virtually no more painless than a common filling. Even better, it has a very high rate of success, and many treated teeth go on to thrive for a large number of years.
At Avanti Dentistry, our goal is help you preserve your natural, healthy smile over the course of your life through quality prevention and revitalizing restorative options. However, circumstances can arise where tooth extraction becomes a necessity. Maybe you experienced a traumatic injury, or perhaps an infection has become so severe that the tooth is no longer able to be saved. Whatever the case is, our doctors will be sure to handle your extraction procedure as comfortably and effectively as possible, and we’ll also work with you to determine the ideal reconstructive solution for your personal needs and budget.
Wisdom Tooth Extractions
Today, most teeth that are in need of extraction are your third molars, which are more commonly known as “wisdom teeth.” They’re the last adult teeth to emerge into your smile (usually arriving in the young adult years) and the lack of space left available for them can lead to serious concerns, including partial or full impaction, infection, overcrowding, and more. Our Tysons Corner team will keep a close eye on these teeth as patients grow, and if we determine that consequences are likely from our X-rays and examinations, we may recommend their removal as a preventive measure that preserves both your oral health and your overall wellbeing.
Bone and Soft Tissue Grafting
If you’re missing one or more teeth, a solution that provides a permanent, enhanced bite is almost always desired. However, many people do not have an adequate amount of bone height or width required to support a dental implant in their upper or lower jaw. For many of our patients, we are able to perform a bone augmentation procedure to help. Please call us today to arrange your appointment for an elevation and grafting consultation.
Our specialists are trained to perform bone augmentation and sinus lifts to help those in our care get the results they want. If you are in need of a dental implant in the upper row of teeth, but have been told that there isn't enough bone in the area because of the large sinus cavities, you'll most likely need a sinus lift procedure. This entails opening a tiny space in the area of the sinus from inside the mouth and packing some bone grafting material in the bottom of the sinus, at the site of the future implant. Based on the amount of available bone, a decision is made to place an implant at the same time as the sinus lift, or some months after healing.
Prosthodontics & Dentures
In the United States, 26% of adults between the ages of 65 and 74 years have lost all their teeth, and in other parts of the world, that percentage is even higher. Luckily, with all of the advances in modern dentistry, there are many affordable and efficient ways to replace missing teeth that are both aesthetically pleasing and functional.
Removable denture prosthetics (false teeth), are one of the most inexpensive options for replacing lost teeth, and they just might be the right option for you. Other treatment options for multiple missing teeth include implant-assisted dentures and fixed implant-supported dentures, which we can discuss in further detail during your consultation appointment. Remember, the first step to finding a solution is scheduling an appointment, so that we can develop a treatment plan that will best meet your needs.
