DENTAL IMPLANTS

As your Pinole dentist, Dr. Croft is proud to make accessible dental implants, the most permanent and most powerful alternative for patients who've gaps from missing teeth. A dental implant includes two pieces: One is a medical grade titanium screw that's fixed into the jawbone; the other is a porcelain dental crown.

DENTURES

Dentures are among the choices available for those patients who've lost their natural teeth. At Lara Croft DDS, our objective is to supply dentures that replicate the teeth that are lost as strongly as possible, both in appearance and functionality. This necessitates getting measurements by getting forms of gums and supportive tissue.

CAVITY FILLINGS

It is important that the wearer is filled as soon as possible when cavities, or small holes, start to form on your teeth. Dr. Croft stresses the significance of this because these holes endanger the strength of your teeth, making chips and serious breaks much more likely. We have several alternatives available for treating cavities.

DENTAL CROWNS

A porcelain dental crown is a hollow cover. Porcelain crowns are an integral piece of restorative dentistry because of their versatility in the treatment of a wide variety of tooth problems. Crowns are also used as to construct dental bridges and components in root canal procedures.

 

CAVITY FILLINGS


It is important that the wearer is filled as soon as possible when cavities, or small holes, start to form on your teeth. Dr. Croft stresses the significance of this because these holes endanger the strength of your teeth, making chips and serious breaks much more likely. Furthermore, since the tooth's face was penetrated, these holes can lead to serious infections to the interior of your tooth, which eventually will result in a root canal. At Lara Croft DDS, we have several alternatives available for treating cavities.

 

DENTAL BRIDGES

Too as being unattractive, the opening from the missing teeth can inhibit appropriate eating and speaking. Using these measurements, a replacement tooth is carved from a block of porcelain that's colored to perfectly match your surrounding teeth. The sculpted replacement is subsequently bonded so that it is suspended between two porcelain dental crowns. These crowns fit over the teeth adjacent to the gap and are bonded such that the bridge is held in the correct position.

PARTIAL DENTURES

Partial dentures are an excellent choice for patients who have lost merely a few teeth in one or several areas of the mouth. Working much like a traditional orthodontic retainer, these dentures use a plastic mouthpiece fitted with wires. Pinole, CA dentist, Dr. Croft, will always attentively take an impression of your mouth to get the correct specifications for your dentures. Then at your next appointment the dentures certainly will provide the wearer a tight fitting replacement.

A dental implant includes two pieces: One is a medical grade titanium screw that's fixed into the jawbone; the other is a porcelain dental crown that is mounted on the screw to compose the visible portion of the implant.

The procedure starts by Dr. Croft anchoring a titanium screw into the jaw. The bone grows into the threads of the implant, once the screw is in place. This process is called grafting, or Osseointegration.

IMPLANT DENTURES

Dentures may be perfect replacements for those who have lost all their natural teeth, but they're not ideal for everybody. We are the leading dentist in Pinole, CA who performs the dental implant process.

The people start before planting two titanium screws into the upper jaw by sedating you. Through procedure, the bones grow into the grooves of the implant, making a strong, long-lasting hold. The joining bars in position by fastening onto an equivalent bit on the denture plate holds the dentures. Implant dentures can resist major mastication, Osseointegration works totally normally, and they provide the closest possible feel to natural teeth.

 

ONLAYS / INLAYS

At Lara Croft DDS, your Pinole dentist will typically use inlays and Onlays when cavities on the chewing surface of back teeth have become too severe to be treated with conventional fillings. The difference between an Onlay and inlay is dependent on the positioning of the damage with reference to the tooth's chewing surface. If the damage is restricted to within the depression (within the cusps) of the tooth it's an inlay. The cusps must be recreated along with if extensive damage has progressed, it truly is an Onlay. A single Onlay can sometimes be used across multiple teeth.

Gold is still available, although the latter two alternatives are the most popular today due to their aesthetic look. The making of these restorations is a two-step process in which you'll first have impressions taken of the affected place. Subsequently the molds are sent to a dental laboratory where a proficient technician will manage manufacturing. At your next appointment, it's bonded into place and ready for use.
