Restorative Dentistry


Woman looking at her smile in a mirrorAt Eric D. Ford DDS, our goal is to prevent dental problems before they occur. Unfortunately, this is not always possible due to poor oral hygiene, genetics, infrequent checkups, and other risk factors. This is why we also specialize in restorative dentistry. Our restorative services are designed to improve the function and aesthetics of your smile, as well as your overall oral health.

Tooth Colored Filling


Dental fillings are the best way to restore minor to moderate instances of tooth decay. Most fillings these days consist of a material known as composite resin. Composite resin is an aesthetically-pleasing material that we color-match to the existing shade of your enamel. For this reason, a composite filling is virtually indistinguishable from the rest of your tooth.

Dental Crowns and Bridges


A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that improves the structure and cosmetics of a damaged or decayed tooth. During the procedure, your tooth must be completely reshaped to accommodate the shape of the crown. Once the tooth is reshaped, we will permanently bond the crown to the enamel using a special adhesive. Many crowns are fabricated these days with porcelain, due to its unmatched aesthetics.

CEREC Same-Day Crowns and Bridges


There are situations in which you need to restore your teeth instantly or a broken tooth could cause you major embarrassment. If this applies to you, then you will want to learn more about CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) crown. In circumstances when you have no time to wait for a traditional crown, a CEREC dental crown can help repair your tooth and restore your smile without the wait.

Dental Implant


A dental implant is a small titanium post that we surgically place into the jawbone. The implant serves as the root component of a prosthetic tooth. Once the implant is in place, it will fuse to the bone during the process of osseointegration. Osseointegration allows the implant to support a restoration against the strongest forces of your bite. For this reason, dental implants are widely considered to be the next best thing to your natural teeth.

All on 4⪚


Patients who are missing multiple teeth may benefit from the All-on-4 treatment method. Multiple implants are placed into the jawbone, providing an aesthetically pleasing tooth replacement method.

Dentures


A denture is a removable appliance that is usually used to replace one or more missing teeth. A partial denture usually attaches to the surrounding teeth with metal clasps. A complete denture consists of a flesh-colored acrylic base that supports a complete arch of prosthetic teeth. We offer custom-fit dentures as a more comfortable, functional, and durable solution.

Root Canal


A root canal is a last-ditch effort to save a tooth from extraction. We may recommend a root canal if an infection has spread to the "pulpy" center of the tooth that contains nerve endings and other connective tissues. Once the infection has been removed, we fill the canals with a rubber-like material known as gutta-percha. A tooth that has received root canal treatment typically needs to be capped with a crown.

Tooth Extraction


There are two types of tooth extractions: simple and surgical. We perform a simple extraction on a tooth that has already erupted above the gumline. We perform a surgical extraction on a tooth that has become impacted, or has yet to erupt, such as wisdom teeth. Extraction may be necessary to prevent the spread of infection and other complications.

Sedation


Many patients struggle with anxiety when it comes to dental treatment. In order to make each dental visit as comfortable as possible, our practice offers sedation.
