Columbus Family Dental Center
Don't Suffer With Hurting Teeth
There is no need to suffer with a damaged tooth. If your tooth is broken, chipped, or fractured, see Columbus Family Dental Center as soon as possible. Otherwise, your tooth could be damaged further or become infected, possibly causing you to end up losing the tooth. Our skilled doctors can repair your tooth using a variety of methods that will cater to your needs. We also offer oral sedation to those patients that may be a little anxious or nervous about their dental visit.
If you have any questions about how you can have a healthy, attractive smile like many of our other patients, please contact us today.
Metal fillings are virtually a thing of the past and at Columbus Family Dental Center we have the technology to replace any unattractive metal fillings with natural looking tooth-colored fillings making them almost invisible to the naked eye. These composite fillings are structurally bonded to your teeth making them much less likely to fall out which was a regular problem with silver/amalgam fillings.
A crown is sometimes termed a "cap" or "jacket." A crown will restore a large filling or a cracked tooth to its original size, shape and tooth color. A crown may be recommended after root canal therapy has been completed, as the tooth tends to become brittle and is more likely to fracture. A crown can strengthen and protect the remaining tooth structure and improves the appearance of your teeth.
Inlays and onlays may be needed when a tooth is too damaged to support a dental filling but not damaged enough for a dental crown.
A root canal may be needed if the decay has reached the tooth's nerve. Essentially, a root canal involves cleaning out a tooth's infected root, then filling and sealing the canal.
Several techniques are used to rebuild bone, restore your jaw line, and provide a strong foundation for dental implants.
A gum lift or crown lengthening may be performed to create a more even gum line. Patients with a gummy smile can quickly and safely have unwanted tissue removed, thus exposing more tooth to shape a more attractive smile.
Periodontal diseases are infections of the gums, which gradually lead to the destruction of the support of your natural teeth. These diseases effect more than 80% of Americans by the age of 45.
A tooth extraction may be required when a tooth has become too damaged, from trauma or decay, to repaired. Sometimes it is necessary to remove teeth to prevent infection.
