Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas … these are all holidays that includes something we enjoy — eating!

When you have a full set of healthy teeth, you can look forward to enjoying some sweet treats (within reason) or digging into some turkey, ham, or delicious side dishes.

If you don’t have all your healthy teeth or some of your teeth are damaged, you may have to be more selective about what you eat. That can be discouraging, but no need to worry. Our team at Brandon Family Dental can help your rebuild your mouth with our restorative dentistry.

Just visit our Ortonville, MI office if you want to start looking forward holiday feasts in the future. Call 248-469-0218 now to make an appointment with us.

In the meantime, take a moment to refresh your memory about some of our most popular restorative options.

Undo Damage with Dental Crowns

Dental crowns have existed for thousands of years, but modern crowns are the best they have ever been. Today’s crowns both look and function like real teeth.

Modern crowns are made with ceramics that mimic the appearance of natural teeth. The materials are strong, so you can trust that you will be able to eat the foods that you love.

And they are durable. With proper care, your crowns can last for decades.

Crowns can be used to fix teeth that have been damaged by decay, repaired with a root canal, broken, and cracked. Crowns also can be part of your replacements for missing and extracted teeth.

If you think a crown could help you, please contact us soon.

Fill Gaps with Dental Bridges

If you are missing multiple teeth, a dental bridge should probably be part of your replacement strategy. Bridges are built by fusing dental crowns together to fill the empty spaces in your smile.

Traditional bridges and implant-supported bridge are both great ways to restore the appearance of your lost teeth. They also can help you bring back the bite that you’ve lost.

Since these are made by combining crowns together, you can trust that they will be durable and strong as well.

Strengthen Your Smile with Dental Implants

Modern root-form dental implants were first developed in the 1960s. These were designed and intended to replace the roots of missing teeth. That’s also why they make teeth replacements stronger and more lifelike than ever.

By getting implants, you are creating a direct connection from your jawbone to your dental restoration, whether that’s a crown, a bridge, or a set of dentures. With implants, you can bite and chew as easily as someone with a full set of healthy, natural teeth.

In other words, with implants, you can fill confident about putting whatever you would like on your plate during Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner.
