Restorative Dental Treatments
Dr. Ribitch offers a full range of cosmetic and restorative dental treatments for addressing complex problems. Your personal treatment plan will be designed to achieve your aesthetic goals while restoring and supporting your overall dental health and wellness. Treatment options can include:
Dental Implants: Dental implants are a great option for patients who want a more balanced smile. For a permanent restoration that looks and feels natural, high-quality dental implants are the best choice. Dr. Ribitch works with an oral surgeon who will perform implant treatment. Dental implants can also be used to secure dentures and dental bridges.
Dental Bridges: If you are missing one or multiple teeth, you may benefit from a dental bridge. Dental bridges can be removable, fixed, or secured with dental implants for a more permanent restoration. Today’s dental bridges fit more naturally and comfortably than ever.
Dental Crowns: Do you have damaged or discolored teeth? Restore the appearance of teeth while protecting them with dental crowns. Dental crowns offer multiple benefits to patients who have chipped, worn, discolored, and damaged teeth. Dental crowns can also be used to hold a filling, attach a dental bridge, or cover the post of a dental implant.
Dentures & Partials: Are you missing multiple teeth or full arches of teeth? Do you want to restore the form and function of your teeth? Dentures are a great option for patients who want to speak clearly and bite and chew with ease. Professional dentures and partials improve the quality of life for patients with lost teeth.
TMJ Treatment: If you often find yourself clenching or grinding your teeth you may have a TMJ disorder. TMJ, or temporomandibular joint dysfunction, is pain experienced in and around jaw joints. Dr. Ribitch can treat TMJ disorders with oral appliances, orthodontics, and more. We will conduct a thorough dental exam and provide you with personalized treatment plans.
How is a prosthodontist different from a regular dentist?
Prosthodontists take on more training specifically to learn more about dental restoration and new technology and products. Restorative dental services are their specialty. They’re able to treat many conditions and completely rehabilitate your mouth.
Does a prosthodontist do cosmetic dentistry?
Dr. Ribitch is also completing additional education for cosmetic dentistry. Prosthodontics and cosmetic dentistry can go hand in hand. Dental restoration techniques may be essential for your oral health, but with cosmetic dentistry, the restorations will also be beautiful aesthetically.
How does the field of prosthodontics work?
Advancements in technology have helped the field of prosthodontics tremendously. At Mid Michigan Smiles, we use an iTero scanner for impressions, as well as a wide array of different x-ray technology. This allows us to get the imaging precise and ensure that the restoration that’s made for your mouth fits perfectly.
