Dr. Ramsey is an experienced restorative dentist who takes a holistic approach to dental care. He practices mercury-free dentistry, which means he only uses safe, biocompatible tooth-colored fillings to fill the hole (cavity) left by a tooth decay. A tooth-colored filling looks just like the enamel that surrounds it, and it is less sensitive to changes in temperature than the silver, or amalgam alternative.
Crown and Bridgework
If you have a severely decayed tooth or if you need replacement teeth to fill the gaps in your smile, we offer natural-looking crowns and bridges. Dental crowns are thin, tooth-shaped coverings that completely surround a damaged or decayed tooth. A crown can also restore a single dental implant or finish root canal therapy. The dental bridge replaces one, two, or several teeth missing in a row using the two surrounding teeth as anchors for the prosthetics that fill in the space between. Crowns and bridges can be made from a variety of materials -- the one that is right for you depends on the location it is placed and your preference.
Dentures and Partials
Dentures and partials complete a smile that has been affected by significant tooth loss. The full denture replaces an entire row of teeth in the upper or lower jaw, and a partial fits in with the remaining natural teeth to help patients speak, smile, and eat with ease once again.
For eligible patients, the best option in tooth replacement is dental implants, which replace the entire structure of the tooth -- from the supportive root structure to the crown that you see when you smile. Dental implants come at a higher initial cost than dentures or the traditional crown and bridge, but they can be expected to last a lifetime. If you are a good candidate for dental implants, Dr. Ramsey will recommend a local expert for the surgical placement. You return to our office for the restoration of your dental implants once they have healed.
Smiles that require more extensive care may benefit from full-mouth reconstruction, which is a comprehensive plan to restore oral comfort, function, and appearance. Whatever your needs, Dr. Ramsey and his team can deliver the fantastic smile you deserve through comprehensive restorative and mercury-free dentistry!
