Restorative care is an essential part of our practice. For many advanced restorative services, such as dental implants, dentists have to refer patients to a specialist for at least part of their treatment. But at Arkansas River Valley Dentistry, we can often provide our patients with the care they need without making a referral.
Our comprehensive offering of restorative services includes:
Root Canal Therapy
Under certain circumstances, a decayed or damaged tooth can develop an internal infection.When this happens, patients may experience acute discomfort, including sensitivity to hot or cold foods and drinks. In these cases, our Clarksville team will perform a root canal. During your procedure, we’ll remove the infected nerve material from your tooth and replace it with a special filler. We’ll finish your procedure by placing a protective crown over your tooth, restoring both its strength and appearance.
Crown & Bridges
A patient who is missing one or more teeth may have trouble eating and speaking. What’s more, nearby teeth will move out of their correct position over time, creating the potential for problems with tooth decay, gum disease, and TMJ dysfunction. A custom-made crown and bridge from our Clarksville dental office will help you replace your missing tooth, improving your appearance and your smile’s functionality while preventing nearby teeth from moving out of their correct position.
Wisdom Teeth Extractions
Even though our wisdom teeth develop naturally, modern jaws don’t have room for them. That’s why our Clarksville office is proud to offer wisdom tooth extractions. To help you prevent painful problems like crowding or impaction, we’ll remove your wisdom teeth before they come in. If you or someone else in your family needs a wisdom tooth extraction, we’ll be happy to schedule a consultation. During the consultation, we can talk more about this procedure and the importance of having it done.
Removable Dentures and Partials
With a removable denture or partial denture, our team at Arkansas River Valley Dentistry can help you replace a few teeth or even a full row of teeth. A partial denture features multiple replacement teeth on a removable, gum-colored base while a full denture replaces an entire upper or lower arch. Regardless of which you need, your denture will be custom-made according to your situation and designed to provide the most natural fit possible.
Of all the tooth replacement options available today, dental implants provide the most lifelike results. That’s because implants don’t just replace your missing teeth, they also replace your missing tooth roots. The added stabilization that comes with implant-retained crowns, bridges, or dentures leads to increased functionality and performance, with results that will last for years to come. Not every patient is a good candidate for dental implants, though. If you’d like to know if implants are right for you, talk to one of our dentists about your needs.
