In today’s world, dental implants are the clear frontrunner for quality tooth replacement. This state-of-the-art service rebuilds the missing structure from the ground floor, starting with a biocompatible implant that serves as the tooth’s new “root.” The final result is seamlessly lifelike and long-lasting. As long as they’re properly maintained, implant-retained teeth should be a part of your smile for the rest of your life.
Crowns & Bridges
Rebuilding a tooth that is injured, decayed, or incomplete can be accomplished with a custom-made dental crown or bridge here in Fairhope! Dr. Knight always takes the time to ensure that these smile additions are both high in quality and an ideal match alongside the natural teeth.
Over 90% of the population will experience a cavity at one point or another. Here in Fairhope, our team is happy to have invested in tooth-colored composite resin as an excellent alternative to traditional amalgam. Dr. Knight uses this material to repair dental damage conservatively and attractively – in fact, you likely won’t even be able to distinguish the filling from the rest of your smile following treatment.
Dentures & Partials
After losing a large amount of natural teeth, everyday life can become more difficult from countless angles. Maybe you have to stick to soft foods at your favorite restaurant instead of a juicy steak, or maybe your speech has become so clumsy that you’d rather keep your mouth shut when hanging out with friends. At Fairhope Modern Dental, we want to help you regain a full set of teeth that can be wholeheartedly relied on with custom-made dentures. Today’s prosthetics are much more modern, stable, and attractive than their old-time counterparts. Our team offers both full and partial models at an affordable price to accommodate your needs.
Root Canal Therapy
Are you experiencing severe pain and sensitivity in a specific tooth? An advanced infection may be raging beneath the surface. Instead of extracting the tooth, Dr. Knight will likely recommend root canal therapy as an effective strategy for not only revitalizing the tooth’s health, but helping it stay a safe and functional part of your smile for many more years to come.
Extracting a natural tooth is never a fun procedure, and it definitely won’t be Dr. Knight’s first recommendation either. However, it can become a necessary evil in certain circumstances like the following:
- When a tooth has suffered a serious injury and can’t be rebuilt.
- When a tooth is experiencing advanced decay and can’t be rehabilitated.
- When advanced gum disease is present throughout the mouth.
- When a patient is interested in orthodontic treatment but needs to have one or more teeth removed to make the process a success.
- When our younger patients have a stubborn baby tooth that needs to be removed so that the adult tooth can emerge safely.
Our team will do everything we can to keep you comfortable throughout the procedure. If a replacement is needed, Dr. Knight can also help the patient get a head start on this process so that they don’t have to be without their best smile for very long.
Dr. Knight believes that it’s never too late for a patient to reclaim their oral health, even when facing severe damage, decay, and tooth loss. That’s why he will work closely with you on a personalized full-mouth reconstruction plan that encompasses all the services you need. Possible additions to this plan include dental implants, crowns, tooth-colored fillings, bridges, and even cosmetic treatment if the patient desires that. Better yet, by determining our path before any actual procedures begin, we can streamline the process and save our patients valuable time in the treatment chair.
Now, repairing a tooth with a dental crown is easier than ever! In the past, this would require at least two visits to your dentist’s office, but thanks to our in-house technology, we can now complete the procedure in just one. Using CAD/CAM technology, we can design, fabricate, and place a completely custom-made crown all while you sit and relax in our office. The entire process usually takes about an hour, but the quality is comparable to a lab-made crown. This makes it easier for you to get the care you need on YOUR schedule.
