High-Quality Dental Services
Our dental office offers multiple modern dental treatments for patients to improve the form and function of their smiles:
Dental Implant Restorations
Dental implants are durable metal posts that can replace one or multiple missing teeth at the root. A single dental implant consists of a metal post, an abutment, and a dental crown. After the implant post fuses with the jawbone, it becomes a permanent part of the smile. Dental implants can secure a dental crown, bridge, or denture in place to restore the look and feel of natural teeth.
Invisalign clear aligners are a great alternative to traditional metal braces. Invisalign uses clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten crooked teeth. Unlike with braces, patients with Invisalign can eat the foods they love without restrictions and brush and floss without brackets or wires in the way.
Full Mouth Reconstructions
Do you have teeth that are damaged or missing? Advanced gum disease? Our Worcester dental team can create a full mouth reconstruction treatment plan designed to address all aspects of your oral health to fully restore your smile. A full mouth reconstruction can include a series of procedures that will treat varying dental health needs, progressively giving you back a stable and healthy smile.
