Restorative Dentistry

You use your teeth every day, subjecting them to strenuous tasks such as biting, grinding, and chewing. Your teeth naturally wear down with age and may start giving you pain or discomfort during these common activities. When your teeth can no longer keep up with your daily routine, you don’t have to give up your great-looking smile!

With our advanced restorative dental services, you can resume eating and speaking normally again with no pain and little chance for spreading or recurring damage. Dr. Tryon takes great care to make sure your dental problems are not only treated but resolved.

Crowns/Bridges, Implants, and Dentures

Damaged teeth can be restored to their full functionality with dental crowns, bridges, or implants. These artificial teeth can be customized to blend in with your natural teeth.

Missing teeth can also be replaced with removable or implant-supported dentures. Dr. Tryon will help you decide which option might be best for you.

Extractions

Dr. Tryon will always attempt to salvage a tooth, but he may recommend an extraction if the tooth poses too much of a problem to remain in your mouth. Our extraction techniques are gentle and easy on your gums and surrounding teeth.

Mercury-Free Fillings

Even with regular at-home dental care, bacteria can still settle on and between your teeth and create holes, called cavities. Cavities can cause your teeth to ache and can lead to more serious infection if they are not filled immediately with special dental fillings.

In the past, dental fillings were made of silver and contained mercury, so they were not only very obvious but also hazardous. Our mercury-free fillings have the following benefits over traditional silver amalgam fillings:

  • Bonded to your teeth for extra strength, so they won’t break down or chip as easily.
  • Tooth-colored, so they won’t be as noticeable and will blend in with the rest of your teeth.
  • Contain no mercury at all, so they are safer for you and your family.

Bite Splints

If your teeth are worn down or flat, you may be grinding your teeth. Bruxism, or teeth grinding, affects an estimated 40 million Americans, but many are unable to stop the bad habit because it most often occurs while they are sleeping.

Fortunately, there is an easy and fast solution! Dr. Tryon can craft a bite splint just for you that will prevent you from grinding your teeth during the night. A bite splint can stop you from grinding your natural teeth any further and also keep you from grinding and damaging your new dental restorations.
