Crowns, Bridges, Implants, Dentures
Damaged or decayed teeth may be restored to like new condition by the proper utilization of crowns, bridges, implants or dentures. Crowns are fixed over a damaged tooth restoring its full function while a bridge is fixed to solid teeth to fill a gap. Implants are an increasingly popular alternative to dentures and bridges. Anchored securely to the jaw they are the closest to the missing tooth including natural appearance, improved comfort and unequaled convenience. When natural teeth can't be restored, properly fitted dentures look great and chew well.
After a complete examination and review of your specific condition North Port Dental will explain all your options and together we can decide on the best course of action to relieve your pain and restore your smile.
Endodontic Therapy (Root Canal)
A root canal may be necessary to save your natural tooth when a cavity is deep in its root. The nerve of the tooth is cleaned out and replaced with a material that seals the inside of the root so infection cannot return.
North Port Dental uses the latest technology to complete endodontic treatment painlessly and in much less time than previously possible.
If a tooth is beyond restoration a tooth extraction may become necessary. North Port Dental is prepared to perform tooth extractions in-house, immediately and painlessly. You'll leave our office on the road to recovery.
A healthy attractive smile has an impact on your health, self-esteem, and relationships both professional and personal. If you're not happy with the appearance (shape, color, missing teeth/gaps or even an usual gum line) of your smile, North Port Dental has the expertise and technology to design a smile that will keep you smiling.

For minor chips, broken or discolored teeth a porcelain veneer is a great, quick solution. A porcelain veneer is a custom designed covering fixed over the tooth or teeth. It gives natural color, bridges small gaps and hides imperfections hiding all but a beautiiful, bright smile.
Regular & Periodontal Cleanings
North Port Dental has three hygienists on staff to provide both regular and periodontal cleanings. Whether you need a periodontal cleaning or a regular cleaning depends on if you have, or have had, gum disease in the past. Periodontal cleanings include a review of past gum problems and a closer evaluation of your current condition and may include scaling when indicated.
Regular cleanings every 6 months will help to keep your teeth, gums and mouth healthy which helps to prevent serious, more expensive problems in the future.
