Dental implants are titanium posts that can are surgically placed into the jaw, where they provide unrivaled support for restorations such as crowns, bridges, and dentures. Dr. Forde offers complete dental implant treatment in one location. He can surgically place the implants and top them with custom-made restorations. He also offers bone grafting to replace lost bone tissue and to build a strong foundation for your implants.
Dental bridges are custom-crafted restorations designed to replace up to three consecutive missing teeth. A bridge comprises between one and three replacement teeth bookended by two crowns that attach to the adjacent natural teeth. Dr. Forde can also provide implant-supported bridges, which do not affect the structure of the remaining natural teeth. A bridge will fill the gap in your smile and prevent your other teeth from shifting out of their optimal positions.
Dental crowns are restorations that are designed to cover the entire visible surface area of damaged teeth. Dr. Forde will trim off the damaged material and shape your tooth to make room for the crown. Then he will take impression to ensure a proper fit. Our partner lab will use the measurements to design a durable restoration from tooth-colored materials. Your crown will precisely complement your surrounding natural teeth in terms of size, shape, color, and texture.
If you have a small or moderately sized cavity, Dr. Forde will typically recommend a filling. At Family & Cosmetic Dental Design, we only use tooth-colored materials. Composite resin will never show through your tooth, and it will also provide more strength and support. Dr. Forde will treat your tooth with a desensitizing agent before placing the restoration.
Inlays and onlays are a cross between a filling and a crown. Made to go over the flat tops of your molars, they can restore severely decayed teeth. However, Dr. Forde will need to remove much less tooth material than he would when placing a crown. Custom-made inlays will fit between your cusps, while onlays will cover at least one of the cusps.
Dr. Forde will recommend full mouth reconstruction if most or all of the teeth in your mouth are missing or extensively damaged. Your full mouth reconstruction plan will comprise multiple restorative treatments, staged to address your most pressing concerns first. Dr. Forde will carefully select the right treatments for your needs. In addition to the restorative options listed on this page, he may recommend certain cosmetic and general dentistry procedures as your needs dictate.
If you are missing most or all of your teeth, you may not know that you have numerous denture options to choose from. First, you will need to choose the size of your restoration. A full denture will replace your entire dental arch, while a partial will restore a large number of missing teeth. You can also choose between traditional removable and implant-supported dentures, the latter representing the pinnacle of denture technology.
