Unsurpassed Restorative Dentistry in Spruce Grove
Are you struggling with a crack in your enamel, a painful cavity, or a missing tooth? Dental problems such as these happen to nearly everyone, and it’s certainly nothing to be ashamed of. Instead, Spruce Ridge Dental offers quality restorative dentistry services to return back the structure and vitality of your smile as soon as possible. Our Westloc team works hard to help you feel relaxed and comfortable throughout any procedure, and we’re glad to offer several aesthetic-minded options that create seamless results. Patients from Devon and beyond are welcome at our Spruce Grove dental practice.
Crown & Bridge
When a tooth undergoes extensive decay or structural damage, a crown is often the ideal solution for restoring its strength and function. Our Spruce Grove team also uses crowns for dental implant and root canal procedures, and they can even correct purely cosmetic flaws for optimal patient satisfaction. The treatment process usually requires only two appointments – one in which we prepare the tooth and take impressions, and a second to place the permanent restoration. our team and Dr. Vu are happy to offer quality porcelain crowns so patients retain their natural smile.
Additionally, dental crowns are an important component of dental bridges. We typically recommend dental bridges to patients who may not be ideal candidates for dental implants but who still want a sturdy, permanent reconstructive solution. Bridges are designed to replace one or more teeth in a row, and dental crowns fitted over nearby healthy teeth serve as anchors that hold the dental prosthetic securely in place.
Root Canal Therapy
If you have a tooth that’s severely damaged due to decay or injury, it’s important to pursue treatment as soon as possible. While a bacterial infection that’s penetrated the inner canals of the tooth can make extraction a necessity, root canal therapy could be the saving grace that restores health and structure for years to come. During this procedure, one of our doctors carefully accesses the inside of the tooth, removing diseased pulp and replacing it with a biocompatible substance before sealing the area shut. A custom-made, tooth-colored crown placed on top restores lost strength or structure.
While root canal therapy may have earned a scary reputation over the years, today’s state-of-the-art dental tools have rendered the procedure more comfortable than ever. In fact, paint typically subsides after root canal therapy!
Wisdom Tooth Extraction
our team and Dr. Vu’s goal is to help St. Albert patients maintain a complete, natural smile for life. Because of that goal, we strive to prevent extractions in as many cases as possible. However, this procedure can be necessary when oral health is threatened by one or more teeth. This is most common with third molars or wisdom teeth. Because of their late eruption (usually when the patient is a young adult), there’s often not enough room for wisdom teeth to emerge properly, which leads to higher risks of infection, decay, and structural damage. If we determine that extraction is the best choice, our Spruce Grove team ensures that your treatment is comfortable and effective.
Many patients choose dentures as their tooth replacement solution due to reliability, convenience, and affordability. Our team provides custom-made full and partial dentures to patients from Edmonton and beyond. Traditional full and partial dentures are removable for easy oral hygiene and more comfortable rest. Implant-retained prosthetics are also available for Stony Pain patients looking for a little more stability.
