Dr. Mamaliger has provided comprehensive dental care to thousands of families. Our patients come from around the block as well as surrounding counties to experience the warm, personal care we provide. As we help you obtain optimum oral health and work together to help reach your goals, we offer the latest and best dental treatment including:
Sometimes cavities happen. When a tooth is damaged by decay, a filling can help restore the tooth back to its normal function and shape. If you have a tooth that requires a filling, we will first remove the decay, clean the affected area, and then restore the tooth with a tooth-colored filling material.
Crowns, and the majority of bridges, are each dental prosthetics designed to act as permanent teeth. While traditional dentures can be taken out each day by the patient, crowns and bridges are affixed onto your existing teeth or dental implants. Crowns and bridges should only be removed by a dentist.
Dentures replace lost teeth. There is an adjustment period after dentures are placed in the mouth, and it can take some getting used to. No one enjoys losing their natural teeth, but you can still eat and talk normally with dentures. Implants can also be used to further stabilize the dentures.
Implants blend in with remaining teeth to create a natural look that will have you smiling again in no time. Dental experts consider implants to be one of the greatest advances in the field over the past four decades. Most implants are made of titanium, which is accepted by the human body.
Good oral hygiene should always be practiced since the loss of a single tooth can have major impact upon your oral health and appearance. Although we will use every measure to prevent tooth loss, sometimes there are still necessary occasions when a tooth may need to be extracted.
Being proactive about your dental health is essential to having a great smile and maintaining good overall health. Taking action now to ensure good dental health means it’s less likely you will have to deal with cavities and other more serious problems later in life.
