At our Omaha Family Dental Clinics we offer full scope dentistry, including tooth restorations (fillings), tooth extractions, periodontics (tooth cleanings and management of gum diseases),full and partial dentures, root canals, crowns, bridges, implants, Invisalign orthodontics and same day management of dental emergencies.
Tooth Restorations: Tooth colored restorations are referred to as composites, because they are composed of a resin matrix and fillers. Composites or resins have undergone continual improvements in durability, stability and esthetic properties. Tooth colored restorations are actually bonded to tooth structures as opposed to amalgam metal restorations that are locked into the tooth. Tooth colored restorations come in a variety of shades to match your tooth, so they will look and feel just like your tooth. These restorations are strong, tough and will last a long time if properly taken care of. At Omaha Family Dental we offer both tooth colored composite restorations and metal amalgam restorations.
Periodontics: Periodontics includes the supporting structures of the teeth, including the gingiva (gums) and bone. The word periodontal means "around the tooth" and healthy gums fit like a cuff around each tooth. Where the gum line meets the tooth, it forms a v-shaped crevice known as a sulcus. When these gums become damaged by periodontal disease, it becomes more difficult to practice effective oral hygiene as they harbor and promote the growth of harmful bacteria. These damaged compromised gums can lead to bone and tooth loss. At Omaha Family Dental we work hard to educate you on the importance of healthy gums and we promote healthy gums by twice yearly tooth and gum cleanings.
Full Dentures: Full dentures are removable dental prosthesis that are fabricated when all teeth have been removed from the mouth. These prosthesis are then used to replaced these missing teeth. At Omaha Family Dental we have over 50 years experience in fabricating full and partial dentures.
Partial Dentures: A removable partial denture usually consists of replacement teeth attached to a pink or gum-colored base, which connects to a metal framework that holds the denture in place in the mouth. Partial dentures are used when one or more natural teeth remain in the mouth. The metal framework has clasps that hold the denture onto the remaining teeth. At Omaha Family Dental we can fabricate full or partial dentures.
Root Canals: Root canal therapy is used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or infected. A root canal procedure is performed when the nerve of the tooth becomes infected or the pulp becomes damaged. During the procedure the nerve and pulp tissue is removed, the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed. At Omaha Family Dental we offer root canal therapy on all teeth.
Crowns: A dental crown is a dental prosthesis that completely caps or encircles a tooth. Crowns are cemented or "glued" to the underlying tooth structure. Crowns are indicated in teeth that have existing root canals or have large fillings. We offer crowns at all our clinics at Omaha Family Dental.
Bridges: A dental bridge is a fixed dental restoration used to replace a missing tooth or multiple missing teeth by joining an artificial tooth permanently to adjacent teeth. We offer bridges at all our clinics at Omaha Family Dental.
Implants: A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants are options for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, large cavity, failed root canal, trauma or other reason. All Omaha Family Dental clinics offer dental implants.
Invisalign orthodontics: Invisalign is an alternative to wire braces that uses transparent, incremental aligners to adjust teeth. It is manufactured by Align Technology, a multinational medical device company headquartered in California. The Invisalign treatment process involves taking a mold of a patient's teeth that is scanned in order to create a computerized model. Using the doctor's treatment plan, the computer model creates stages between the current and desired teeth positions that are used to create molds for individual aligners. Dr. Paul Taylor, partner at Omaha Family Dental is Invisalign certified. Please call any of our clinics for a consult.
Dental Emergencies: A toothache has been said to be one of the most painful of experiences. At Omaha Family Dental we will see a dental emergency on the same day you call. Just call any of our Clinics for hours of operation and locations that are most convenient to you.
