When a tooth is affected by tooth decay, the decay should be removed and replaced with a filling as soon as possible to prevent it from spreading. North Richland Hills Dentistry offers composite, or tooth-colored, dental fillings that blend in with the rest of the tooth and don’t stand out from the surrounding teeth.
Root Canal Therapy
Root canals are required when the pulp inside a tooth has become infected and must be removed to prevent the infection from spreading and to restore the tooth. Then, a crown is placed to protect the affected tooth. Root canals have a reputation for being invasive and painful procedures, but our team offers gentle root canal treatments.
Dental Crowns & Bridges
Dental crowns are custom tooth-colored caps that are designed to fit comfortably over a tooth that has been weakened by extensive decay or damage. Dental bridges are three or more crowns attached together that fit over the abutment teeth. Both options can be used to protect teeth and enhance their appearance, but bridges can also be used to replace a missing tooth.
If you need one or more teeth extracted and replaced, or you have a few missing teeth, dental implants are excellent tooth replacement options that can restore the functionality and appearance of the smile. Implants fuse with the jawbone, which creates a very sturdy base for a natural-looking dental restoration to attach to.
Full & Partial Dentures
Full dentures are required when a patient needs a full arch of teeth replaced, either the top arch, bottom arch, or both. Partial dentures can be designed to fill in gaps in your smile by clipping onto nearby teeth. We also offer implant-supported dentures, which combine the stability of implants with the dentures’ ability to replace many teeth at once.
Tooth extractions can become necessary when a tooth has suffered extensive damage and must be removed and replaced, or when a tooth or teeth have started crowding other teeth and causing damage, among other reasons. Our gentle and efficient tooth extractions can restore your smile with very little to no pain.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Dental practices don’t always have oral surgeons who can perform wisdom tooth removals in-house, which is why we are proud to offer wisdom tooth removal procedures at North Richland Hills Dentistry. Wisdom tooth removal is one of the most common kinds of dental extractions and can be needed if the wisdom teeth are causing problems or look like they may cause problems in the future.
