DenturesWe make full and partial dentures. To achieve the desired natural-looking teeth we work closely with you and our lab for this personal service.
FillingsHere at South Hill Family Dentistry you have choices; we offer two types of fillings. Silver fillings (amalgam), have been around a long time, and work well on back teeth. We also offer tooth colored fillings (composite), which use a resin material that bonds to your tooth. This has two benefits: it looks great, and since it bonds to your tooth, less tooth structure needs to be removed to place the filling material. In 1993, US public health services issued a report stating there are no health reasons not to get amalgam fillings.
Root CanalsA root canal, also known as Endodontic Treatment, refers to the removal of the internal nerve of your tooth. We do most root canals here in office. A root canal removes and replaces the internal nerve of your tooth with a suitable material. This procedure preserves your tooth which would otherwise require extraction. Most root canal teeth require a future crown.
Wisdom TeethWisdom teeth, also referred to as third molars, get their name by being the last teeth to come in during young adulthood.
Tooth ExtractionsA tooth extraction is the procedure done to remove a tooth that is damaged beyond repair from its socket in the jawbone.
Periodontal ServicePeriodontics is the branch of dentistry that deals with the structures that support teeth, which includes: gums, support ligaments, bone and tissue. We provide non-surgical services, and our 2 long term hygienists are dedicated to your oral health.
