Dental Crowns & Bridges
If you have an infected or damaged tooth that can be saved, a dental crown may be recommended. At times, an infected tooth is severe and starts to endanger the surrounding teeth. If left untreated, the infection could spread to other teeth and eventually have to be extracted. With the help of a dental crown, a damaged or infected tooth can be covered to protect it from further damage and also to protect the rest of your smile.
Dental crowns can also be used to replace a missing tooth with the help of a dental bridge. Dental bridges include a prosthetic tooth and two abutment crowns. The crowns are placed over the healthy teeth on either side of the gap that needs to be filled, and the prosthetic tooth is placed in between the two crowns. The crowns help create a stable foundation for filling the gap in your smile.
When a cavity needs filled, tooth-colored fillings are used to seal the tooth once the infected part of the tooth has been removed. Tooth-colored fillings blend in with your smile and help protect your tooth from further damage. Fillings can also be used in restoring damaged teeth through tooth bonding.
Wisdom Teeth Extraction
Wisdom teeth extractions can be performed in our Lititz location by Dr. Moriarty with the help of sedation dentistry. If your smile does not have room for your wisdom teeth, one or more may need to be removed. Many people don’t have enough room in their jaws to accommodate wisdom teeth without their other teeth shifting. This can lead to a variety of problems. Wisdom teeth removal is very common, and recovery can take up to a week, depending on your specific case.
Partial and Full Dentures
If you are missing some or all of your teeth, we offer dentures for restoring your smile! If you are missing a set of teeth, but still have teeth remaining, partial dentures may be a great option. Depending on the number of teeth missing and treatment needed, your dentist can recommend the best option for restoring your smile.
