SureSmile Clear Aligners

SureSmile Clear Aligners are a great option for those looking for a discreet orthodontic treatment. Think “Invisible Braces” — that’s Right!! No more noticeable and embarrassing metal braces, just convenience and results.

With comfort, invisibility, and convenience, it can be hard to believe that SureSmile clear aligners are real.

Veneers

Veneers can correct a wide variety of dental imperfections. Porcelain veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells that are custom-crafted to improve the appearance of your teeth. They can improve the look of:

  • Chipped, cracked, or misshapen teeth
  • Crooked or misaligned teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Stained or discolored teeth
  • Short teeth

Teeth Whitening

While over-the-counter whitening methods are easily accessible at the drug store, nothing compares to a professional teeth whitening service. Not only does a professional teeth whitening whiten better and last longer, it’s also safer for your teeth and doesn’t produce sensitivity often associated with whitening strips. We believe that dentist-supervised teeth whitening is the most effective cosmetic dentistry procedure for brightening your smile and the dentists offer several teeth whitening options.

Bonding & Recontouring

We use bonding to repair chipped teeth. We use composite materials to create a strong and durable structure that will feel like your natural tooth. Recontouring can also correct a chipped tooth, along with cracked teeth, or overlapping teeth. We will slightly alter the shape, length, or position of a tooth.

Full Mouth Reconstruction | Smile Makeover

Using a combination of restorative and cosmetic dentistry treatment options, Adams Dental Group can combine multiple services to restore the functionality, health, and look of your smile with a smile makeover! If you’ve suffered from tooth damage, decay, or loss, full mouth reconstruction may be a wonderful option for you, and often includes a combination of:

  • Dental Implants
  • Crowns and Bridges
  • Teeth Whitening
  • Porcelain Veneers

night-guard

Did you know that about 15% of people have a habit of grinding their teeth or clenching their jaws, a condition called bruxism? Clenching and grinding can be caused by multiple factors, such as stress or anxiety, and studies have shown that even sleep apnea can sometimes go hand-in-hand with grinding and clenching your teeth at night.

So, what can be done to help with this? A Night guard is often the answer to this problem!

Bruxism Explained

We may unknowingly clench our jaws throughout the day. This can happen when we’re frustrated about something, concentrating on learning new things, or really, just doing anything throughout the day. Clenching or grinding our teeth is known as Bruxism. There’s also Sleep Bruxism, which happens when we clench or grind our teeth when we sleep.

At Adams Dental Group, we often look for these signs or symptoms in association with Bruxism:

  • Jaw muscle tenderness
  • Cracked, broken or missing teeth
  • Damage to the teeth, including the inside of the cheeks

A Night Guard Can Help

You may be wondering, “Do I really need a nightguard?” or “Can I just try to stop clenching my jaw?”

The truth is, Bruxism, if left untreated can lead to major headaches, tooth pain, fractured fillings, broken teeth, and jaw pain. It’s extremely important to try and put a stop to Bruxism as soon as you can to reduce any tooth damage and pain. A night guard is often the best way to stop Bruxism in its tracks, quickly and safely. At Adams Dental, Dr. Roberts and his team can create a custom-fitted night guard that is comfortable and protects your teeth.

A night guard is a wonderful solution to help Bruxism. Preventative dental services and products such as mouth guards, also referred to as night guards, are an important tool for preventing these problems when they are the most damaging, while you are sleeping. Night guards are designed to be comfortable to wear, and patients typically notice a reduction in pain and a sounder night’s sleep soon after starting to wear the device. Many patients who finally get a custom mouth guard will tell us they don’t know how they ever lived without it.

Adams Dental Group Can Help Save Your Teeth

If you’re clenching and grinding your teeth (or you suspect you are) — schedule your appointment with Dr. Roberts. He will help determine if a night guard is a solution for you and develop of customized treatment plan to restore and keep your smile healthy.

missing-tooth

Has it been a while since you smiled without reluctance? Having a missing tooth, or teeth, can do more than just alter your confidence. It can make tasks like chewing and talking difficult to deal with. Surprisingly, over 178 million Americans are experiencing tooth loss, so you’re definitely not alone and at Adams Dental Group, we’re here to help restore your smile and confidence with our multiple restorative options!

Restorative Dentistry

The health of your mouth affects more than the beauty of your smile and we believe in practicing a total wellness approach toward your dental care. Ultimately, our holistic methods are designed to optimize your experience from start to finish. With this whole health goal in mind, we believe we can preserve the aesthetics of your smile, help to improve or maintain your health at the highest level, and restore function to your bite.

Basically, restorative dentistry is used when dental professionals are talking about replacing missing or damaged teeth. So, when you are looking into dental implants or dentures to fix a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth, you’ll want to talk to us about restorative dentistry options.

We offer Restorative Dentistry Options.

Dental Implants

A great way to think of dental implants is to think of them as artificial tooth roots. They take the place of your natural teeth’s roots to anchor down a new tooth. When you get a dental implant, the new root is placed in the jawbone and will fuse with your natural bone to create a strong anchor for a new, artificial tooth (called a crown) to be placed on top. Dental implants are a wonderful way to get back your smile and look natural. Dental implant technology has been extremely successful for over 30 years and are the strongest way to replace natural teeth and roots. Some facts about dental implants:

  • The first dental implant was created around 600 AD. Researchers found tooth-like shells were hammered into Mayan women’s jaw bones. Obviously, this technology has come a long, long way to the advanced procedure it is today.
  • Dental implants stimulate your natural jaw bone.
  • Over 3 million Americans have dental implants, and this number is growing.

Dentures

Another popular restorative dental option is dentures. Dentures and partial dentures are removable appliances that replace teeth when implants and bridges are not an option. They can be supported by remaining healthy teeth, implants, or they can replace all teeth.

Full dentures are complete rows of prosthetic teeth for both your upper and lower jaw, affixed to gum-colored bases. When you have healthy remaining teeth, our dentists may suggest a partial denture to close the gaps in your smile. Partials contain as many prosthetic teeth as necessary to fill in the spaces left by missing teeth, and they fit with existing teeth like a puzzle. Partials can be secured to hidden clasps or dental implants and, unlike a bridge, they are removable.

Implant-Supported Dentures

There’s also a third type of denture that can restore your smile. Unlike the previous dentures we talked about, implant-supported dentures are not removable. It’s kind of like combining implants and dentures into one, fixable appliance. With this treatment, dentures are essentially locked into place by implants, which can deliver unparalleled denture stability and functionality.
