Just like a bridge that spans gaps in the road, dental bridges cross gaps in your smile and are used to replace missing teeth. A bridge is like a crown, but it is held in place by being attached to the neighboring teeth forming a bridge over the space.
A crown, sometimes called a cap, will restore the strength and appearance of your previously damaged tooth. At Sage Creek Dental, Twin Falls dentist Dr. Godfrey can make you a custom crown in one visit that will look and feel like a real tooth.
If you get a cavity it should be filled without delay so it doesn’t worsen into something more painful and expensive. Wouldn’t you rather have a filling than let the decay get so bad you eventually need a root canal or to have the tooth pulled?
Simple extractions cost less and are quicker than surgical extractions. Many times the dentist doesn't know which type of extraction you'll need until he begins the procedure so you should be prepared for either kind.
Wisdom Teeth are usually removed because you do not have enough room in your mouth for the wisdom teeth to come in and function properly. If wisdom teeth are left in they can cause pain and damage adjacent teeth.
"Impressed with level of care and attentiveness! Being in town, Dr. Godfrey came highly recommended to us by a friend. He and his staff have been nothing short of very friendly and accommodating for us getting us in on short notice when I was experiencing significant tooth pain (and the next day had to speak at a funeral)! The personal phone calls, checking to ensure everything was doing well after the procedures was very thoughtful. Now our family all have them help us take care of our teeth! Glad we found him and I'd recommend Dr. Godfrey without reservation."
