Our mission at Bristol Dental and Orthodontics is to help you and your entire family stay healthy! While dental specialists typically focus on providing treatment for advanced conditions, we offer the treatment that can keep you from needing that advanced care.
Traditional braces use metal brackets and wires to straighten crooked teeth by applying torque and pressure. They treat all cases of crooked teeth but can address complex cases of overcrowded teeth and severely misaligned bites as well. Braces often take months to a few years to completely align teeth depending on your unique case.
Invisalign orthodontics is a series of clear plastic aligners used to straighten mildly crooked teeth. They are virtually invisible when worn, making them a popular solution with social teens and professional adults alike. Invisalign aligners are removable so you can eat what you want and maintain proper oral hygiene with ease.
Dental crowns are porcelain “caps” that cover your natural tooth. They are built to restore the strength and function to a tooth, as well as improve aesthetics like color, size, and shape. Crowns are also used after root canal therapy and to restore a dental implant.
Dental bridges are a series of porcelain dental crowns that replace one or more missing teeth in a row. They attach to one or both teeth on either side of the empty tooth socket(s) to replace aesthetics and function to the area and restore a complete smile after tooth loss.
Porcelain veneers are thin shells that cover over the front surface of teeth. They hide cosmetic flaws like gaps, chips, crookedness, and discoloration. Dental veneers require a minimal amount of tooth enamel to be removed so they fit naturally alongside each other or existing teeth.
Dentures are ideal for people who have lost some or all of their teeth. Dentures are also known as false teeth and are often worn by younger people despite being associated with the elderly.
Your gums maintain the integrity of your teeth and protect your jawbone from infection. If not maintained properly, serious infections like gum disease can loosen the gums, weaken the bone, and even lead to tooth loss. Gum disease, if left untreated, has also led to systemic health conditions like heart disease, stroke, and diabetes complications.
An occlusal adjustment helps create a harmonious bite for teeth that don’t fit together properly (malocclusion). This treatment involves altering the surfaces of the problem teeth so the pressure and force when biting and chewing are distributed evenly. Occlusal adjustments help reduce teeth grinding and clenching, jaw pain, and headaches.
If you hear a popping sound from your jaw when you bite down, you might have a TMJ disorder or jaw joint and/or teeth misalignment. With custom-fitted mouthguards we can keep you from clenching and grinding your teeth and allow any stressed facial and jaw muscles to loosen up. Additionally, we can correct tooth misalignment with orthodontic solutions such as Invisalign®, which can reduce grinding and clenching and bring more natural, comfortable movement back to your jaws.
Professional teeth whitening can brighten teeth multiple shades whiter in just a single session! Our professional-grade treatment penetrates deep into the inner layers of your teeth to remove deep stains alongside surface-level stains. Teeth whitening is personalized and monitored for stunning, long-term results.
Sleep Apnea Treatment
If you have sleep apnea, snoring is only a symptom of your condition. During sleep, the soft tissues of your mouth relax and can collapse on your airway. This can create an obstruction that causes you to stop breathing repeatedly every night! To prevent this, we can fit you with a mandibular advancement device, a mouthguard that holds your jaw slightly forward to keep your airway open. With a customized mouthguard, you can enjoy more restful nights and energetic, productive days.
