TLC Dental Care offers many services, including:
- Dentures: Dentures are prosthetic teeth created to replace missing teeth, and are usually removable. Partial dentures can replace several missing teeth in one area, whereas complete dentures act as a replacement for all missing teeth in one area. Benefits of dentures are both functional and aesthetic. Dentures can help with patients’ chewing abilities and improve facial appearance.
- Onlays: Sometimes composite restorations are not an option due to decay around the tooth. In these cases, an onlay may be more appropriate. An onlay is a restoration of the tooth that covers one or more cusps, or the biting surface area of the tooth. An onlay will perserve the structure of your tooth, and is a great option when composite restorations or a crown isn’t appropriate.
- Extractions: An extraction is the removal of a tooth. An extraction may be needed in times of extreme tooth decay, if the structure of the tooth is unable to be restored, or if there are extra teeth that are blocking other teeth from coming in. During your appointment, Dr. Clauson will do a thorough examination of your mouth and discuss any extractions if necessary.
