It Hurts to Chew

Tooth Repair

Cracked, broken or bad teeth affect your chewing ability and diet. You may lose your appetite if you are restricted to certain foods, which can eventually lead to poor nutrition. One of our dentists will look at your mouth and recommend the best method of tooth repair. This can be as simple as getting fillings or replacing old restorations.

For large cavities or extensive damage, your dentist may use inlays /onlays (a special type of custom filling) or crowns to restore the tooth. If there is dental pulp infection, we will first remove the diseased pulp and decayed areas before sealing the space and protecting the tooth with a crown.

Tooth Replacement

Your Topeka dentist replaces missing teeth with bridges, partial/complete dentures and dental implants. Bridges “bridge” the gap left by a missing tooth. A fixed bridge typically consists of two porcelain crowns capped over teeth on either side of the gap, and a replacement crown in the middle. If you are missing several or all of your teeth, your dentist may use dentures or dental implants.

Dental Replacement

Dental implants are recommended if you are looking for maximum stability and durability. Implant-supported teeth also look, feel and function like the real thing. We recommend teeth replacement as soon as possible to prevent natural teeth from moving out of position and causing bite problems.

End chewing problems and start enjoying your favorite foods again. Make an appointment today at Todays Dentistry.
