Patients experience a variety of dental concerns and problems and seek treatment from our experienced team. Below is a list of some of the more common issues, however we encourage you to contact us to discuss your specific case.Our compassionate and knowledgeable team is trained in a wide range of advanced dental techniques and treatments that are designed to help restore your comfort and confidence.
Dental implants are the most ideal solution for replacing missing teeth. They are a permanent solution that preserves your bite and looks just like your natural teeth. Dr. Grant Olson has placed hundreds of dental implants and continues to refine his skill and study the latest techniques.
At Innovative Dental, we take the guesswork out of this process by using an advanced surgical guide, making placement predictable, precise, and painless. Watch as Dr. Olson explains why he uses the fully guided implant process.
For patients missing multiple teeth, implant technology can be combined with full-arch prosthetics to provide a permanent solution. Learn more about Full Mouth Rehabilitation using implants.
Another treatment option for missing teeth is dental bridges. At Innovative Dental, our doctors use zirconia – a durable, non-metallic material that more closely resembles the natural color of teeth, giving you a beautiful result! We are one of the only practices in the area to offer the convenience of making these bridges right in our office.
Teeth wear naturally as we age. Grinding, clenching, misalignment, and other dental issues can cause teeth to wear prematurely. When teeth are worn down, not only does it affect the look of your smile, but problems such as sensitivity and chewing discomfort can occur.
If you are concerned about tooth wear, the team at Innovative Dental is here to help! Options such as Invisalign®, crowns, and veneers can rejuvenate your smile, make you look years younger and help to prevent future damage. Contact Us to Schedule Your Complimentary Consultation Today!
Teeth grinding, also known as bruxism, is a common concern that can lead to a range of issues, including an increased risk of cracks, chips, and premature tooth wear. Our dentists can conduct a thorough examination of your bite and the condition of your teeth in order to determine what action should be taken to protect your dentition. Common therapies include custom-made night guards and/or orthodontic interventions, which can help realign the bite and prevent further grinding.
Tooth pain can vary in terms of cause and severity, so it must be addressed on a case by case basis. If it is determined that the tooth pain is being caused by infection or decay, either a filling or root canal therapy will likely be recommended. Fillings are designed to address decay that has created holes—or cavities—in the tooth structure. Root canal therapy enables our dentists to gain access to the inner nerve chamber of the tooth in order to remove infected tissue and bacteria. Both procedures can usually be performed in one visit, and many patients report experiencing immediate relief once the infected tissue has been cleaned.
Other possible causes of tooth pain include abscesses (pus-filled pockets that can occur within an infected tooth or along the gums or bone tissue), broken teeth, exposed nerves or dentin (the interior part of the tooth that is normally protected by the enamel), repetitive tooth grinding, and more. Our experienced team can help figure out what is causing your tooth pain and recommend the most appropriate treatment for resolving the issue efficiently and effectively.
Headaches can sometimes be caused by an underlying dental issue, such as chronic toothaches, jaw pain, and/or teeth grinding. For those experiencing persistent headaches—with or without accompanying tooth pain—a visit to the dentist could benefit you and potentially help you find some relief.
Bleeding gums can be caused by a number of factors, with the most common being gum disease and poor dental hygiene. For those with poor dental care habits, switching up your routine is oftentimes a major step towards improved gum health. Proper brushing and flossing with regular professional dental cleanings can prevent bleeding gums while also helping to safeguard your long-term oral health. For those suffering from gum disease, it is critical that a dentist examines your mouth so that timely treatment—such as scaling and root planing—can be administered. Without intervention by a dentist, gum disease can worsen, leading to a number of oral and systemic health concerns, including tooth loss and jawbone resorption.
