Featured Dental Procedures
Although missing teeth are very common, they can cause serious, long-term issues if left untreated. Dental implants are small titanium posts that are designed to replace missing tooth roots. Implants can replace a single tooth or multiple teeth. Patients lacking healthy jawbone tissue who are missing all of their teeth can benefit from All-on-4 implant treatment. Dr. Bidra has extensive experience with dental implants, having placed and restored thousands of them. He will be responsible for your entire implant treatment.
If your teeth and gums are affected by a wide range of oral health issues, it can be difficult to know where to start. Full mouth reconstruction is a custom treatment plan that combines various dental procedures such as periodontal therapy, crowns, and dental implants to meet your individual oral health needs. Every full mouth reconstruction is custom-designed around the unique oral health needs of the patient. No matter which procedures you choose to incorporate, our dentists can perform them here in our office.
Chipped, uneven, or stained teeth can make you feel self-conscious when talking to your colleagues or friends. Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin porcelain shells that cover the front surfaces of your teeth, concealing dental imperfections and improving size, shape, and shade all at once. Our dentists can evaluate your smile and determine whether veneers are the right solution for you.
Some patients experience extreme anxiety due to dental phobia. If going to the dentist triggers feelings of fear or anxiety, Sedation Dentistry can help you get the care you need without feeling nervous. Dr. Bidra works with a dental anesthesiologist to offer intravenous (IV) sedation, which induces a deeply relaxed, semi-conscious state. Sedation can help patients undergoing extensive procedures, those who feel anxious, or those who have difficulty sitting comfortably for long periods.
All-on-4 Dental Implants
If you are missing all your teeth, the All-on-4® method can restore your smile without the need for a preparatory bone graft. Dr. Bidra is an All-on-4 specialist, and our practice has been officially recognized as an All-on-4 Center for Excellence.
