Services provided in our office include: Crowns,Bridges,and Veneers Our crowns,bridges,and veneers are custom designed to match all proportions of adjacent natural teeth. Porcelain is custom colored and shaped to offer each patient a distinctive prosthetic restoration to enhance appearance and function. Implants Dental implants can offer significant advantages over conventional tooth-replacement techniques. Our office works closely with area periodontists and oral surgeons in the coordination of care for our implant patients. We use only implant systems of the highest quality and which have earned approval by the American Dental Association. Dental implants can be restored in a number of ways,such as single crowns,implant bridges,or implant overdentures. Full Mouth Reconstruction Excessive wear of the teeth from grinding or bruxism can often necessitate full mouth restoration,for which Dr. Duckworth is especially qualified. Teeth can be replaced by many different means and combination of techniques,such as crowns with non-removable bridges,removable partials,and implant-supported replacement teeth. Complete and Partial Denture Removable appliances,such as customized complete or partial dentures,can restore function and appearance in the mouth as well as the surrounding facial tissues. If several teeth can be saved,overdentures can be made to fit over the roots of these teeth,preserving bone and tissue and greatly increasing denture stability. Tremendous stability and function can be achieved for partial dentures and overdentures by the use of precision attachments. Maxillofacial Reconstructions Working with other doctors,prosthodontists provide treatment for patients with birth defects (such as cleft palate),traumatic injuries,and patients who have undergone surgical or radiation treatment for cancer. Preventitive Care We are pleased to offer routine cleanings and periodontal and implant maintenance procedures in our hygiene department. Fillings Dr. Duckworth provides traditional amalgam fillings and aesthetic tooth-colored composite fillings,as well as gold and porcelain inlays and onlays.
