Dental health is important because it impacts our appearance and our ability to speak and eat.

Many dental problems can be avoided with good hygiene and preventive care from a dental professional.

Restoring Health to Smiles with Tooth-Colored Fillings, Root Canal Therapy, and Lifelike Crowns
Enamel-colored fillings for the treatment of cavities have the great advantage of blending in with surrounding teeth. The precise way the material is bonded onto teeth allows Dr. Morse to preserve maximum tooth structure. These fillings also contain no metals that may cause allergic reactions is sensitive patients.
If decay or damage reaches the inner-chamber or pulp of the tooth, Dr. Morse may recommend the restorative treatment of root canal therapy. Root canal therapy relieves people of painful toothaches by removing the infected pulp, which is where sensitive nerves are located. By preserving a tooth, the health of other teeth, the jaw bone, and the entire body is optimized, and tooth extraction is avoided.
For teeth that have large cavities or have undergone root canal therapy, the best way to protect the tooth and preserve its function is with life-like crowns. Ridge Dental Group provides IPS e.max® crowns for superior aesthetics, shining with the translucent color of natural teeth. IPS e.max crowns are also tough and durable, and lasting a lifetime if properly cared for.
Many Treatment Options for Tooth Loss
Tooth loss is sometimes unavoidable, but modern dentistry can replace a single tooth, a row of teeth, or a full arch of teeth in several different ways.
Implant Supported Restorations can replace a missing tooth with a prosthetic that looks and functions identical to natural teeth. A titanium post acts as a new tooth root, and it permanently and securely fuses with the jaw bone. Then a lifelike crown is attached to the post for a comprehensive solution for missing teeth.
Fixed Bridges are permanent prosthetics that can replace between one and three teeth. Dr. Morse first fortifies adjacent teeth with crowns so they can be a secure anchor for the prosthetic pontic teeth. The pontic teeth are cemented to the anchor teeth, and the entire bridge is matched to surrounding dentition. Fixed bridges appear natural and restore function.
Partial Dentures and Dentures are removable prosthetics, which are made of a natural acrylic. Partial dentures attach to neighboring teeth with metal hooks, and full dentures rest on the gum line with adhesive paste. These prosthetics resemble natural dentition, and restore many of the functions of natural teeth.
