Contact our Oak Creek, WI office today to schedule your first appointment, or if you have any questions we can help you with. Dr. Lange, Dr. Nguyen, and Dr. McEwan look forward to meeting you.
Dental Crowns & Bridges
Dental crowns are individual restorations that are designed to cover the remaining structure of a single tooth, rebuilding its form and improving its appearance while providing valuable preservation. Our doctors are likely to recommend a new dental crown in the following circumstances:
- When a tooth has suffered significant damage.
- When a tooth is experiencing advanced decay that can’t be treated with a tooth-colored filling.
- When a tooth is weakened and needs additional support to prevent fracturing.
- When a tooth has a noticeable cosmetic imperfection.
- When a tooth has been treated with root canal therapy.
- When a lost tooth has been replaced with a dental implant.
Alternatively, dental bridges are a sturdy reconstructive solution when one or more consecutive teeth have been lost to injury or advanced decay. Also referred to as “fixed partial dentures,” a bridge is anchored in place within the mouth by attaching dental crowns to nearby adjacent teeth, providing valuable permanence.
The days of traditional amalgam fillings have long since passed at Market Place Dental. We are pleased to offer patients tooth-colored fillings, which provide many valuable advantages. Tooth-colored, or white, fillings provide a much more lifelike and aesthetically pleasing appearance. Crafted from composite resin, your new filling will be shaded to match your existing enamel and precisely sculpted into place by one of our experienced doctors so that the results are virtually indistinguishable from the rest of your smile. The flexibility of the composite resin material also allows us to preserve a greater amount of the remaining natural tooth for stronger, longer-lasting results, and temperature sensitivity is reduced as well by the lack of metals.
Full & Partial Dentures
If you’ve suffered extensive tooth loss, a customized full or partial denture can provide a reliable, cost-effective replacement in record time. Today’s prosthetics are more modern and effective than ever, and our doctors will work until we’re sure that you are completely satisfied with the fit and appearance of your denture. Both traditional (removable) prosthetics and implant-retained options are available, depending on your available budget and personal preferences.
Root Canal Therapy
Your tooth contains multiple layers that lead down to an inner pulp. When an injury or infection is severe enough to penetrate this vulnerable area, you are at risk of losing the tooth. Thankfully, root canal therapy is available to revitalize the tooth’s strength and health and rescue it from extraction. During this procedure, one of our doctors will access the tooth’s inner chamber and thoroughly remove the infected pulp, replacing it with a safe, biocompatible substance before sealing the structure. A custom dental crown or permanent filling is placed as a final touch to rebuild the tooth’s strength and appearance.
Our team will make every effort to help you maintain your natural, confident teeth for life. But sometimes, extraction may become a necessity in certain circumstances, such as:
- When a tooth has suffered a traumatic injury and cannot be successfully re-implanted.
- When advanced periodontal disease or severe tooth decay has rendered a tooth no longer viable.
- When a “baby” tooth needs to be removed to make way for an emerging adult tooth.
If extraction is necessary, patients of all ages can rest assured that we’ll prioritize their comfort at all times. We provide nitrous oxide sedation and other relaxing amenities upon request. If the teeth need to be replaced, our doctors will start consulting with you right away on the ideal solution so that you can enjoy a full, functional smile as soon as possible.
