Your smile today may not be as brilliant as it once was. Years of wear and tear, injury, or poor care can hurt the look and function of your teeth. Horseshoe Dental changes lives every day through restorative dentistry. Rejuvenate your smile today!
Are you missing teeth? Have you postponed getting a bridge or a denture? Do you wear ill-fitting or loose dentures right now? If so, Horseshoe Dental wants to improve your quality of life with dental implants.
As the prosthetic that most closely mimics nature’s design, dental implants serve as substitute tooth roots. Each implant is strategically placed in the jaw where bone integrates with it to create a solid foundation for a crown, bridge, or denture. With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime.
- Benefits of dental implants:
- Promote bone retention
- Eliminate slipping, loose, wobbly dentures
- Don’t require support from healthy teeth
- Can last a lifetime
- Look, feel, and function like natural teeth

After a tooth loss, your appearance transforms, and your confidence can fade. With dentures, you can regain your confident, normal life even after the loss of your teeth. Offering only the most advanced, removable dentures to best fit you, Horseshoe Dental and his team will guide you every step of the way. Our team creates custom dentures made especially for you and helps you select the shade and shape. You walk away with great fitting dentures that look just like natural teeth, and smiling is just the beginning.
Partial dentures are used if you have several teeth missing that cannot be corrected with a bridge. A partial denture is created to replace those teeth. The partial denture is removable and is designed to fit comfortably, blending in with any remaining teeth. This type of denture is made from a synthetic material that is supported with a lightweight metal. It mimics your gum tissue and teeth to create a natural-looking smile, while still remaining functional. The partial denture is important once the teeth have been removed to preserve the bone and to keep existing teeth from tilting and growing in towards the gaps.
You can erase years of wear and tear with porcelain crowns. Horseshoe Dental uses a tooth-like crown made of porcelain, gold, or silver to restore your tooth after the decay has been removed. Crowns are also used to restore chipped or broken teeth, gaps in teeth, and other damage. Also called “caps,” porcelain crowns mimic natural-looking teeth in both shape and color.
If you have lost a tooth, a large gap in your smile, left uncorrected, can create significant problems for your dental health. Gradually, your bite pressure may shift to other parts of your mouth to compensate for an inability to efficiently chew in the area of the missing tooth. Neighboring teeth may begin to move into the gap, resulting in discomfort, pain, and more future problems. After some preparation of the two neighboring teeth, crowns are created for them. A prosthetic tooth (or pontic) is fused between the crowns. Fixed bridges literally “bridge the gap” in your smile. Horseshoe Dental creates a functional, natural-looking bridge to correct your smile, to restore your bite, and to alleviate your discomfort.

You may suffer from headaches, a popping jaw when you open or close your mouth, and pain in your jaw joints and muscles. This could signify problems with your temporomandibular joint. A healthy jaw joint does not make any noise. Clicking or popping in the joint may be an indication of strain or long-term injury. The joint problem may be a result of trauma, complications with your bite, grinding or clenching your teeth, or a combination of these factors.
TMJ (or Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction), is a condition that affects many people, but the good news is it can often be treated. Based on the severity of your condition, we can recommend a course of treatment that will help alleviate your pain and make your day-to-day activities more pleasant. If you are experiencing or have experienced clicking, popping, or pain in your jaw joint, ask a Horseshoe Dental team member today if you might benefit from this treatment.
