At Oakland Family Dental, we will work with you to make sure you are getting the best dental care possible and are more than satisfied with your results. To provide our patients with high quality care, Dr. Sheehan offers a number of options to help restore patients smiles:
Ideal for replacing one tooth or several missing teeth in the smile, dental implants are considered the golden standard of care. As single dental implants are independently secured to the jawbone, they preserve the health of neighboring teeth by eliminating the need for bridges. Even more importantly, dental implants provide much-needed stimulation to the jawbone, preventing bone resorption and deterioration.
Considered a traditional treatment option for replacing teeth, dentures are also extremely cost-effective. Traditional dentures are removable, allowing patients to take them out for daily cleaning and oral hygiene. Dentures can also help improve the aesthetic look of your smile while restoring oral function by either replacing an entire arch or an entire smile.
Bridges are a treatment option for individuals missing a few teeth. The procedure consists of anchoring a bridge to healthy neighboring teeth which in turn help create stability and improve oral function. Made to blend seamlessly with natural teeth, bridges are durable and stable – allowing patients to have restored confidence in their smile.
