Creating Beautiful Smiles
Northeastern dental is equipped to perform routine extractions. Dr. Passmore will perform an examination and review appropriate x rays. He will then make a determination whether the procedure can be performed safely in the office or should be performed by a specialist. What may seem like a simple procedure may in fact be high risk for complications during the procedure and post operatively. This can be based on medical history, anatomy of the tooth and surrounding structures. It is Dr. Passmore’s intent that all patients receive exceptional care. If a referral to a specialist is indicated he will inform you of the reasons why and provide the appropriate documentation.
One option of replacing a tooth that needs to be extracted or already missing is an implant. This procedure is a great way to replace that tooth and allow you to eat and chew food properly. This treatment is coordinated with local specialists to ensure you have the best treatment plan. Implants can also be used to anchor ill- fitting or loose dentures.
Northeastern Dental can replace a missing tooth or teeth with dental implants. These artificial roots and teeth, usually made from titanium, are surgically implanted in the upper or lower jaw as a fixed alternative to dentures and partials.
They are strong, stable, and will last for many years.
Mini dental implants (MDIs) are tiny screw-like devices that function in place of a missing root. Dentures fit firmly onto a ball and retaining device at the top of the implant. They are useful when you've suffered significant bone loss in your jaw.
MDIs promote many benefits over standard dentures.
Don't let payment worries keep you from good dental health. We have many financing options available!
Tempro-mandibular joint dysfunction syndrome (TMJ) can give you severe headaches, jaw pain, grinding teeth, and ringing ears. If these symptoms sound familiar, contact our office today to schedule an appointment.
Dr. Passmore will diagnose the situation, and if TMJ is indicated, arrange for appropriate treatments, which range from mouth guards to relaxation techniques to muscle relaxants.
A more permanent solution is to change the shape of the teeth and get rid of the bad bite condition that is creating TMJ in the first place. Realignment of the teeth is painless, and Dr. Passmore has performed the procedure many times.
