If you have a missing tooth or need to have a tooth pulled, our experienced dentists in Encinitas, CA, can replace your missing tooth with a dental bridge. A dental bridge is used when a tooth can’t be salvaged with a filling or dental crown, but it is still necessary to have a functioning tooth. Held in place with durable crowns, dental bridges are a great way to restore your smile!
Dental implants are the sturdiest, most attractive dental restoration for anybody missing a single tooth, an entire arch of teeth, or any number in between. These dental prosthetics permanently restore your ability to eat, drink, and socialize without any issues or embarrassment.
Teeth-in-a-Day is a revolutionary treatment that can provide patients with an arch replacement in just one visit. Instead of replacing each missing tooth with individual implants, the innovative Teeth-in-a-Day procedure uses a few strategically placed implants to secure your new artificial teeth in place.
Implant-supported dentures are a type of overdenture that replaces multiple teeth at once. These customized appliances are a permanent, durable solution to missing teeth. They’re an alternative to traditional dentures, which can slip and slide while you talk. Implant-retained dentures allow patients to live their lives with fewer restrictions than dentures.
If the idea of permanently replacing your teeth with dental implants isn’t something you can confidently do, McElroy Smiles By Design also offers the latest advancements in conventional dentures. In addition to improving the appearance of your smile, dentures can help fill out the appearance of your face and profile.
Root canal therapy can rescue your teeth from dental infection, restoring their health and allowing you to maintain a wholly natural smile. Most dentists agree that if the natural tooth can be saved from extraction, your smile is better off.Dr. McElroy will ensure your root canal treatment is a painless process.
Frequently Asked Questions
Will insurance cover dental implants?
In most cases, yes. Dental implants are generally regarded as being medically necessary due to their function of allowing you to eat, as well as supporting the surrounding teeth and facial structure. This makes insurance more inclined to cover such a procedure, but every insurance plan differs. Call your insurance company to make sure an implant procedure is covered before your procedure.
How long does it take to get dental implants?
Getting dental implants generally takes five to eight months to complete, though this depends on factors such as the condition of your oral health. After receiving your implants, you’ll need to wait for your mouth to completely heal before receiving your final dental restoration.
How much do dentures cost?
The cost of dentures can depend on many factors. The style of dentures, the extent of the work, and your insurance plan are all aspects that can affect your out-of-pocket costs. It’s a good idea to get ahold of your insurance company to determine exactly what costs you are responsible for.
