Dental problems are going to arise. Our teeth are constantly exposed to decay causing bacteria, and when preventative measures fail, our team at Woodland Family Dentistry can restore your teeth to their natural function and aesthetic. Dr. S. Welton and Dr. D. Welton provide a variety of dental therapies that will restore your oral health and regain oral health overall well-being. Common dental restorations performed in office include:
We can make small repairs with the placement of composite filling. Whether damaged from cracks or caries from decay, we can place a tooth colored material that is a blend of quartz and resin to restore your tooth. This material is durable and should last for several years.
Missing teeth can be restored with the placement of a dental implant. Using a titanium device, that appears similar to a screw, we are able to place this device directly into your jaw bone, serving as a root system for the placement of a dental crown, giving you a strong, permanent tooth replacement.
When a patient no longer has any healthy teeth remaining, we can provide the patient with functional false teeth. Dentures can be a drastic change of life, we can significantly ease that struggle by securing your denture with dental implants.
To replace one, or multiple, missing teeth, we can customize a dental bridge. This device uses two healthy teeth, or implant posts, to bridge a false tooth, or multiple teeth, between them.
Damaged or weakened teeth can be protected with the placement of a dental crown. It is always best to save the natural tooth structure when possible. We can extend the life of your tooth, by protecting it with the placement of a dental crown.
Dental bonding is a great way to make simple repairs to your teeth. Whether chipped or discolored due to staining or fluorosis, we can use composite material to make repairs that can cosmetically enhance your teeth.
Also known as endodontic treatment, a root canal can save a tooth from extraction. When bacteria has reached the pulp, or inner portion, of your tooth, we need to remove the infected material. To do this, we need to remove the irritant along with the pulp of the tooth. The space is cleaned, medicated, and filled. We then protect the outer portion of your tooth with a crown.
Before placing a dental prosthetic, we may need to expose more of the tooth by lengthening the crown. This is a minor surgical procedure that removes some of your gum material giving more surface of your tooth for placing the prosthetic and reduces the incidence of decay accumulating beneath the prosthetic.
We preform many simple extractions in our Post Falls, ID office. A tooth extraction is the procedure done to remove a tooth that is damaged beyond repair from its socket in the jawbone. Extractions are also done to remove wisdom teeth that may be impacted or create future problems.
