High-Quality Crowns, Bridges, and Dentures in Troy, Alabama
At Troy Family Dentistry we provide a variety of solutions to repair and replace damaged or missing teeth. We offer both traditional and implant-supported restorations.
Tooth decay is the number one threat to teeth, but cracks and breaks, old fillings that fail, and gum disease all potentially create the need for restoration. A dental prosthetic or appliance can return function to your smile.
If you have damaged or missing teeth, call Troy Family Dentistry to schedule an appointment for a customized crown, bridge, implant or denture consultation today!
A crown is used to completely encase the visible portion of a damaged tooth. Crowns restore a single tooth and can also be used to support a bridge.
Our dedicated dentist, Dr. Regina Hendrix provides a variety of beautiful and strong crown materials, namely solid Zirconia which has a lifetime guarantee against fracture. She recommends crowns in the following cases:
- Topping a Dental Implant
- Repairing a Broken Tooth
- Treating a Large Cavity
- Correcting a Cracked Tooth
- Restoring a Tooth after Root Canal Therapy
Implant supported crowns use titanium posts that are placed in the jawbone and serve as the tooth’s new root. Dr. Hendrix offers crowns for both the treatment of existing teeth and in conjunction with dental implants in Troy. All of our prosthetics are professionally shade matched to the natural color of surrounding teeth.
Troy Family Dentistry offers fixed bridges and implant-supported bridges to replace missing teeth:
Conventional fixed bridges are secured by adjacent teeth that have been prepared with crowns to provide stability.
Implant-supported bridges provide additional support through a biocompatible artificial tooth root. This replacement root stimulates the jawbone keeping it healthy and reducing bone loss. The implant post also eliminates the need to use nearby healthy teeth for support.
Dentures – Traditional and Implant-Supported
We provide high-quality dentures in Troy and offer conventional or implant-supported dentures, as well as the popular "All-on-Four' hybrid, fixed denture to replace full arches of teeth. When dentures are used with implants (just as with implant-supported crowns and bridges) healing can take several weeks or more for full function. Your recovery time will depend on the condition of your gums and jaw, as well as the number of implants received.
