Crowns & Bridges
Dental crowns and bridges are highly versatile restorative solutions that can be used to successfully rebuild teeth from the ground up, whether they’ve suffered serious injury or have been lost altogether. Dr. Delaney takes the time to create highly personalized and long-lasting additions that will fit right in alongside natural teeth, both in terms of function and aesthetics.
At Katahdin Family Dental, the days of traditional amalgam fillings have been left safely in the past! Instead, Dr. Delaney uses high-quality composite resin to treat the damage left by cavities in a lasting and aesthetically pleasing fashion. Composite resin comes in a wide variety of lifelike shades that can be closely matched to natural enamel – this means that your new filling will be virtually indistinguishable from the rest of your smile. Better yet, its conservative nature will help us preserve more of the natural tooth, and the lack of metals will result in better day-to-day oral comfort, too.
Wisdom Teeth Extractions
Extracting natural teeth from the mouth will never be Dr. Delaney’s first choice for treatment, but there are certain situations and circumstances where it’s the best way to protect a patient’s health and quality of life. This is never truer than when the fated third molars (“wisdom teeth”) arrive on the scene. Wisdom teeth will typically start emerging into the mouth between the ages of 16 and 22, but there is rarely enough room left for them to fit in properly. As a result, overcrowding, impaction, and higher risks of infection are likely.
Our team will closely monitor the ongoing development of wisdom teeth in younger patients through X-ray technology. If complications seem likely, Dr. Delaney may recommend extraction for safety purposes. Sedation dentistry is available upon request to help the patient feel at ease throughout the procedure.
