When you arrive at Hubbard Dental for restorative dentistry in Pinehurst, NC, we’ll take x-rays, go over the details of your medical history, and develop a customized treatment plan specifically for you.

Dental crowns are prosthetics that replace part of a damaged tooth. In this procedure, the dentist grinds down the damaged tooth and attaches a replacement made of porcelain composite resin.
Dental implants offer more stability than dentures but at a higher cost. The dentist will cut into the gum and drill a hole into the jaw when installing dental implants. He will then implant a metal screw called a fixture and attach a prosthetic tooth or set of teeth. If you need an entire arch of teeth replaced, all-on-four implants replace your upper or lower teeth, and four screws in your jaw attach the arch to the jaw.
Dental bridges are economical to replace one or more missing teeth as long as the adjacent teeth are strong and healthy. With traditional dental bridges, crowns on either side hold the bridge in place. In cantilever bridges, a crown on one side supports the bridge.
A root canal is often a dreaded surgery, but it is sometimes the only way to save a tooth from advanced tooth decay that has invaded the pulp of the tooth and one or both roots. In a root canal, the dentist will drill into the tooth to remove the infected pulp and parts of the root. Contrary to popular belief, the root canal procedure isn’t excruciating; it helps reduce pain and discomfort.
Dentures are a traditional solution to missing teeth. Partial dentures replace some teeth, while complete dentures replace all the upper or lower teeth. Dentures can cost several hundred dollars for a single arch and over a thousand dollars for top and bottom arches. However, the cost of dentures is substantially less than other alternatives such as dental implants.
Dentures lack the stability and ease of maintenance that dental implants have, but they do not generally involve invasive surgery. In some cases, bone loss might prevent the jaw from adequately supporting the denture. Therefore, the dentist might order bone grafts to shore up the jaw before making dentures.
