How can we help you?
At Wellington Dental, we want to inspire you to a healthier smile by helping you understand the ways in which excellent oral health can benefit your life. Part of this process includes explaining things in detail and answering all your questions, no matter how small.
There's a lot to know about your dental care and we don’t expect you to be an expert, so please don’t ever feel embarrassed about asking a question. If it matters to you, it matters to us!
We have shared a few of the questions we hear most often from our patients, but your smile is unique so you probably have some of your own. If you don't see your question here, please don't hesitate to call our office or fill out our convenient online contact form.
If you are living with missing teeth, you know that the experience can take a toll on your ability to enjoy life. Fortunately, at Wellington Dental we offer several effective options for tooth replacement.
Dental implants are the gold standard for tooth replacement and with good reason. Unlike other types of tooth replacement, an implant includes an artificial root that is surgically placed in your jaw and allowed to heal. The result is a healthy, durable foundation that can be restored with a crown, bridge or denture.
You may think you know all about dentures, but in recent years we have seen some remarkable advances in dental materials and techniques. Our high-quality dentures are fabricated by skilled technicians using the most updated materials and technology available today. The result is tooth replacement that allows you to speak, eat, and smile comfortably. If you are concerned about dentures that move and shift, we will be happy to talk to you about combining them with dental implants to hold the denture securely in place.
A dental bridge is a time-tested option for tooth replacement. The goal of a bridge is to fill the space left by a missing tooth to restore function and appearance.
If you are tired of living with a gap in your smile, please call Wellington Dental for a consultation. Our doctors will be happy to explain your options and choose the one that best fits your needs.
One of the most exciting advances in dentistry has been the introduction of dental implants. Implants have been used for over 40 years and have an impressive 95% success rate.
The thing that makes implants unique is that they replace both the missing tooth and its root. The foundation of an implant is a tiny titanium post that is placed surgically in your jaw. After the implant heals, we attach a crown or other restoration that completes your smile and allows you to eat, speak, and smile comfortably.
When you lose a tooth, bone in your jaw gradually dissolves and eliminates support for other teeth. Implants are the perfect solution because the titanium root stimulates the growth of healthy bone in the jaw. Your oral health also improves because an implant holds a space that prevents crowding and tooth misalignment.
With proper care, your implant will last a lifetime, making it a cost-effective option for tooth replacement. At some point in the future, we may need to replace the restoration, but the implant itself is a permanent part of your dental anatomy.
