Fit Dental offers a variety of restorative dental options to renew the health and beauty of your smile. For families who live in and around Yuba City, California, our restorative dentist can restore your teeth to gleaming health. We regularly treat jaw joint pain and stiffness with TMJ therapy and also provide dental devices for teeth grinding. With gum disease therapy, we reverse gingivitis and revive your gum health.
Another restorative dentistry option to repair and renew teeth is porcelain crowns, or tooth-shaped caps that are placed over your damaged or decayed teeth. Teeth that have been weakened by cavities or infections may need crowns to ensure the structure stays strong and intact. At Fit Dental, we use crowns to cover teeth with stains, chips, and cracks. Our Yuba City dentist ensures that your crown is the same shape, size, and color of your natural teeth. Porcelain crowns are an excellent restorative dentistry option for renewing the health and beauty of your smile.
At Fit Dental in Yuba City, CA, we can use a bridge to replace your missing tooth. It’s a terrific and affordable option for restoring your smile to health and function. The bridge holds three crowns: the middle one is the replacement tooth, and crowns on either side of the replacement are placed on the teeth neighboring your smile gap. If a bridge is the best option for improving your smile, then come to Fit Dental and consult with our experienced restorative dentist.
If you have a lot of missing teeth, Fit Dental can use dentures or partials to make your smile whole again. Our Yuba City restorative dentist has the experience and training to make dentures and partials that fit well. Removable partial dentures replace a few missing teeth, and are attached to your natural teeth with metal clasps. A full set of dentures replaces all of your missing teeth, and uses adhesive to remain in place. At our restorative dentistry practice, we can also use dental implants to retain full and partial dentures.
Fit Dental offers a wide range of restorative dentistry options at our convenient Yuba City office. We can repair your smile with crowns, bridges, and dental implants. We can also restore your gums to full health with gum disease therapy and treat tooth infections with root canals. Schedule an appointment today!
While our Yuba City dentist does everything possible to save tooth structure, it’s sometimes necessary to extract teeth. It may be that the damage or decay is too much, that you have impacted wisdom teeth, or that we need to remove teeth for orthodontics. Whatever the reason you need a tooth extracted, our general dentist can ensure your complete comfort at each step.
We start by numbing the area to be treated. We may recommend nitrous oxide or oral conscious sedation, depending on your unique comfort and safety needs. In many cases, we’re able to perform a simple extraction. Often referred to as pulling a tooth, this solution is only possible for fully erupted, whole teeth. For teeth that cannot be safely pulled, we’ll cut the soft tissue away from the tooth prior to extracting. We may even need to break the tooth into several pieces to ensure the most effective extraction.
Commonly referred to as wisdom teeth, the third molars are the last to erupt into the smile line. Not everyone has wisdom teeth, but if they are beneath the gum line, they typically emerge between the ages of 17 and 25. We recommend extraction due to a number of oral health concerns associated with wisdom teeth. Some of the most common reasons we extract wisdom teeth include:
At our general dentistry practice in Yuba City, CA, we check your teeth for potential signs of infection as well as cracks in your teeth or large cavities that may lead to root canal issues. Did you know that most root canal infections occur when bacteria gets inside a compromised tooth structure? At Fit Dental, our general dentist will restore your tooth to health with a comfortable root canal, healing the infection from the inside out.
A root canal is necessary when dental damage or decay reaches the inner layer of the tooth, the pulp. When this happens, the nerve structure of the tooth may become irritated or damaged, which can be very painful. We offer treatment for root canal that removes the damaged soft tissue, replaces it with a biocompatible substance, and reseals the tooth.
While root canal therapy has garnered a bad reputation, the procedure itself is actually quite comfortable, and patients typically experience significant relief from toothache pain almost immediately. In most cases, we place a crown over root canal treated teeth to ensure the full strength and structure of the tooth is restored.
Sleep apnea is one of the most common sleep disorders among US adults. If you’re one of the millions who suffer from this disorder, let the Fit Dental team help you breathe deeply and sleep soundly through the night. Sleep apnea is the cessation of breathing for ten or more seconds at a time. Patients who suffer from sleep apnea may experience these apnea incidents hundreds of times each night. The result is repeated awakening, diminished sleep quality, elevated blood pressure, daytime sleepiness, and more. The traditional treatment method is continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP). While effective, many patients struggle to adjust to CPAP therapy. That’s where the dentist comes in. We offer comfortable treatment using an oral appliance to the keep the airway clear, allowing you to sleep soundly through the night.
We provide the safest, most effective cosmetic dentistry treatments possible for Yuba City patients. Fit Dental uses white fillings, which are more aesthetically pleasing. White fillings are made from tooth-colored dental materials, and when completed, they appear to be part of your natural tooth. For cavities too large for fillings, we use durable, beautiful porcelain crowns.
