Malan Heights Dental office provides the latest treatments in restorative dentistry. Our Ogden dental office is committed to providing you with restorative treatments that are designed to improve your smile, and overall oral health. We provide the following dental treatments:
A tooth colored filling is a restorative material used to replace a hole in a decayed tooth to restore its structure and functionality. Composite resins are also used to replace old amalgam (silver) fillings. Composite resins are bonded to the tooth whereas amalgam is not. It’s important to get these cavities treated early after diagnosed. By doing so will prevent further decay, pain, infection and other expensive procedures. We will use a composite that will match the color of surrounding teeth so your smile will look complete. Call us today to set up an appointment and learn more about what our services can do for you.
Crowns are used to protect the root of a tooth. They provide strength, and also improve the appearance of your smile. Crowns are typically used on teeth that have had a root canal, and to provide strength after a large filling. They are also used to attach bridges, and protect weakened teeth from further decay and breakage.
A bridge is slightly different, as it involves three teeth. A bridge is a false tooth attached between two crowns, providing strength to an area of the mouth. Bridges are used when a tooth has become so badly decayed, that it needs to be extracted from the mouth, and now there is a missing tooth. Fixed bridges cannot be taken out of the mouth once they are cemented. Bridges also require regular flossing and brushing to prevent decay and gum disease.
Many of our patients have lost their teeth due to trauma, or severe decay. If you have any missing teeth, we can provide you with dental implants to restore your smile. Dental implants are a permanent solution to missing teeth, and do not affect the teeth next to a missing tooth, in any way. Dental implants are quickly becoming the standard in restorative dentistry due their high success rate, and improvement for your smile.
Dentures are removable replacements for missing teeth. These complete sets of false teeth allow patients to chew, smile, and talk normally. We provide full and partial dentures for our patients to correct problems. A partial denture is similar to a bridge, as it fills the spaces for any missing teeth. A full denture is used when all of your teeth have been extracted, and the denture is used to replace your teeth. Patients need to maintain proper oral health to prevent problems with the dentures, and to avoid any rubbing on the gums.
