Here is a list of services and treatments we offer at Belvedere Family Dentistry.
A bridge crosses the space left by a missing tooth or other dental space and helps secure the teeth on either side. A bridge is comprised of two dental caps that are placed on either side of the space, with a pontic in the middle that replaces the missing tooth/teeth.
A crown is a dental cap that covers a damaged tooth, restoring not just its appearance but also improving strength and functionality. Cemented permanently in place, a crown can then be cared for and maintained as easily as a regular tooth. We offer crowns in a wide variety of materials:
Belvedere Family Dentistry loves children. We see children as early as the first tooth comes in. Educating children on proper dental hygiene is important. Creating healthy habits at an early age can aide in healthy habits into adulthood. We believe at Belvedere Family Dentistry showing parents how to help their children brush their teeth properly, schedule routine check-ups and cleanings will aide in creating good oral hygiene for life.
Every child patient receives a special gift after each appointment. Our kid friendly dental team is patient and caring when providing the highest quality dental care to each child patient.
Here at Belvedere Family Dentistry we understand that 60% of people have a fear of the dentist. Our office provides a warm inviting atmosphere with friendly staff members that are trained to help calm these fears. We also provide Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas) to adults and children 5 years and older to help relax patients so they feel comfortable during their dental treatment.
Dentures are another option for the replacement of missing teeth. There are two types of dentures available, partial removable dentures and complete dentures. Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.
It is almost certain everyone will have to deal with the most basic of dental maladies, cavities. If left unaddressed, cavities can cause much more widespread tooth decay and oral pain. When a cavity is removed, ensuring the infected portions of the tooth no longer remains, it can leave an open space that not only threatens the structural integrity of the tooth but can make it easier for infection. A composite resin or amalgam filling fixes this by replacing the lost tooth structure.
Maybe you are active in a sport where it is likely to be impacted in the mouth. A simple mouthguard will help protect your teeth. Another common condition is known as bruxism, where people clench and grind their teeth, accelerating tooth wear and tear.
Partials are used when a person is missing some or all their teeth on the top or bottom arch. Partials allow a person to eat and speak better while helping build self-confidence.
Root canal therapy is treatment to the inside of the tooth. This treatment is specifically for the nerve or pulp the tooth. RCT removes the inflamed and/or infected tooth nerve and replaces it with a sterile material for tooth preservation. Once the RCT is completed on a tooth, a crown is recommended.
Extractions is the removal of a tooth that cannot be saved by a filing or by root canal treatment (RCT).
