Metal-Free Fillings

If one of your teeth has suffered trauma or a cavity has formed, it can be at risk of losing some of its natural structure. Luckily, your Bixby dentist can restore your tooth’s structure and full function with modern dental fillings.

Nowadays, dental fillings are made of a composite tooth-colored material that makes them both functional and aesthetically pleasing.

Some benefits of our metal-free fillings are:

  • A natural-tooth color

  • The material bonds to your tooth

  • It contains fluoride to help prevent future decay

  • Durable and long-lasting results

  • No use of unattractive metal or mercury

Dr. Priscila Jelsing…Learn more about our dentist… begins this procedure by cleaning your tooth and making sure it is decay-free. Then, she’ll place the filling in the affected area. Your filling will then be shaped to fit your bite and is hardened to protect your tooth. The result will be a beautiful and long-lasting restoration placed in just one visit!

Inlays & Onlays

When a tooth suffers damage too severe for a traditional dental filling to repair, Dr. Jelsing may use inlays and onlays. These restorations are custom-made to replace the missing part of your tooth so you can enjoy a fully-functional smile once again.

Here is the difference:

Inlays: These fit inside the little points or “cusps” on your tooth’s surface.
Onlays: This restoration covers one or more of these cusps and may even expand to the chewing surface of your affected tooth.

The first step in creating your inlays and onlays is to take impressions of your damaged tooth and send it to our partner lab. We’ll give you a provisional restoration (temporary) while we wait for new inlay or onlay.

Finally, Dr. Jelsing will bond your inlay or onlay to the tooth after adjusting it to fit your smile nicely. In just two appointments, you’ll achieve a beautiful and discrete result while preserving more of your natural tooth structure!

Dental Bridges

Tooth loss can have a profound effect not only on your self-confidence around others but on your oral health too.

Dental bridges represent an excellent tooth replacement option, especially if you’re not a candidate for dentures or dental implants. This custom-made restoration seamlessly blends in with your natural teeth to restore your smile’s balance and function.

Since a bridge consists of two crowns bonded to each side of an artificial tooth, Dr. Jelsing begins this process by preparing the adjacent teeth. Then, she’ll send impressions of your teeth to our partner lab to create a bridge that comfortably fits your smile. Once your appliance is made, Dr. Jelsing will place your crowns over the adjacent teeth so they can act as anchors for your artificial tooth.

Dental bridges provide an aesthetically pleasing restoration while helping you prevent future dental problems such as teeth shifting. The best part, you can take care of them just like your natural teeth.

Dental Crowns

Restore. Beautify. Protect.

The Basics

A dental crown is a modern restoration placed over your damaged tooth. Our partner lab manufactures these custom-made solutions. A crown’s purpose is to prevent your tooth from suffering further damage while restoring its function and aesthetics.

Testimonial

The staff was delightful and did a great job explaining any future dental work I needed. I also liked that I got an honest review of what was needed and what can wait. I love an honest dentist!

Dentures

As we age, we begin to lose some of our natural teeth, but that’s not the end of the story! With our modern dentures, we can replace your missing teeth in the most comfortable and natural way.

At Spartan Family Dentistry, we offer acrylic dentures, custom-made to cater to your smile needs. These dentures are made of porcelain to match your natural smile’s aesthetics. Believe us; no-one will even notice you’re wearing dentures!

Our custom dentures include:

Cosmetic Dentures: This option requires four implants placed into your upper or lower jaw to hold the appliance in place.

Conventional Dentures: Sitting on top of your gums, these dentures are typically placed as a more temporary solution.

Immediate Dentures: Placed immediately after a tooth extraction, these dentures allow you to go home with a full set of teeth on that same day.

Upper Denture: Just like their name suggests, this denture replaces all the missing teeth on your upper jaw.

Lower Denture: This denture covers your lower jaw while leaving the space for your tongue.

In addition to these full dentures, we also offer partials and dental bridges for those with only a few missing teeth.

Extractions

Our goal is always to preserve your natural tooth, but sometimes you and Dr. Jelsing may conclude that an extraction is the best course of action. Some common reasons for this are preparing for a future procedure (i.e., orthodontics) or because your tooth may harm your dental health.

We make the extraction process as pain-free and straightforward as possible, with sedation options for those who are very nervous. We want you to feel at ease and comfortable, so we numb the area around the tooth and very gently remove it. Afterward, Dr. Jelsing will discuss at-home care to keep your extraction site clean and healthy until your next check-up or restoration.

Full Mouth Reconstruction

As your restorative dentist in Bixby, Dr. Jelsing offers a comprehensive approach to restore your smile’s beauty and function. Our practice is equipped with state-of-the-art technology, sedation dentistry, and an expert team to ensure you receive the superior care you need whenever you need it!

An example of this is our approach to full mouth reconstruction. If your smile needs multiple procedures to restore your oral health or achieve your smile goal, Dr. Jelsing may recommend a full mouth reconstruction or smile makeover. Together, we’ll create a unique treatment plan that fits your needs and goals. Your plan may include different cosmetic or restorative services, such as:

  • Extractions

  • Teeth Whitening

  • Porcelain Veneers

  • Dental Implants

  • Inlays & Onlays

  • Crowns

We’ll set a timeline for each service you need so you can plan your schedule accordingly. Through the combination of Dr. Jelsing’s artistry and exceptional skills, a full mouth reconstruction is a truly life-changing and can produce unbelievable results!

Dental Implants

Permanently replace missing teeth with our innovative treatment.

As we’ve mentioned before, having a missing tooth can have a significant impact on your everyday life, and in turn, your quality of life. Dental implants are the most effective and popular restorative treatment for situations like these. Each dental implant is designed to mimic your tooth’s natural structure discreetly.

An implant consists of three parts; the post, the abutment, and the restoration. The post is inserted into your jawbone and then topped with a custom-made restoration such as a dental crown.

Dental implants provide many benefits that can change your life. With this modern restoration, you can regain your ability to speak, eat, and laugh while enjoying a fully functional smile.

Discover the difference dental implants can bring to your smile and your life.
