Dental Implants  Somerville, MA

Dental Implants

When you have missing teeth, an alternative solution to dentures is dental implants. While dentures are removable, dental implants provide permanent new teeth to restore your mouth’s function and appearance. Dental implants tend to offer a successful and lasting solution to the loss of some or all of your teeth.

Implant Restoration

At West Somerville Dental Associates, we provide implant restoration services when they’re necessary. Our staff knows the signs of implant problems, and we are committed to checking them each time we see you.

These checks are in an effort to keep you healthy and catch any problems with the implants.

When you receive implants, we will guide you on how best to take care of them. This will help you minimize problems and be aware if any present themselves. If you think there is an issue with your current implants, please let us know so we can check them.

At West Somerville Dental Associates, we follow our ethical way of doing business when we approach implant restoration. This means that we put your health and well-being first.

Bridges  Somerville, MA

Bridges and Crowns

It’s likely that you’ve heard of dental crowns and bridges before- but do you know the specifics of what they are and how they can change your smile? Dental crowns and bridges are an old staple in dentistry, and that’s because they work. The old saying goes something like this: if it isn’t broke, don’t fix it, and that’s why West Somerville Dental in Somerville, MA still uses this timeless trick. We utilize these solutions to help our patients restore their smiles to a wonderful place they can be proud of.

What are Crowns and Bridges?

Dental crowns and bridges are custom solutions placed in your mouth to fill in and repair any tooth loss and missing teeth you may have. Crowns are best known by their more commonly known name: caps. They cover a tooth entirely, providing you with a pristine-looking tooth where damage has previously occurred. Bridges on the other hand quite literally “bridge” gaps left in your mouth from missing teeth. They fill in the blank spots and flawlessly meld with the teeth you already have to restore a brilliant smile for those who need it.

Dental crowns and bridges are often used together, but it’s possible you may only need one option over the other. Whatever your individual needs are, West Somerville Dental in Somerville, MA is here for all your dental crown and bridge needs. If you have damaged or missing teeth, you should call or schedule an appointment online with us to get a consultation. We’ll happily provide you all the information you could possibly need regarding your oral health, as well as answer all of your questions. Let’s work together to develop a custom solution to your dental issues- we can’t wait to see your smile!

Inlay and Onlays  Somerville, MA

Inlays and Onlays

Dental inlays and onlays are considered a conservative method of treating damaged teeth. They are used instead of placing a crown. Some dentists even use inlays and onlays to treat tooth decay. Instead of filling in the tooth, your dentist may use dental inlays and onlays.

Dental inlays and onlays are made in a dental lab and then fitted to your tooth. They are then bonded to your tooth.

Cracked Tooth Repair  Somerville, MA

Cracked Tooth Repair

Cracked teeth can cause a variety of symptoms including pain while chewing, temperature sensitivities, and the release of biting pressure. It’s common for pain to come and go, which can make diagnosing the cause difficult.

While you chew, cracked pieces of your tooth move, causing the pulp within the tooth may become irritated. When biting pressure is released, the crack can close quickly resulting in sharp pain. If left untreated, the pulp will eventually become damaged and the tooth will constantly hurt, even when you are not chewing.

It is possible that cracks can lead to infection of the pulp tissue and can spread to the bone and gums surrounding the problem tooth.

There are different types of cracks, and each should be evaluated to prevent tooth loss and infection.
