What Are My Options for Replacing Missing Teeth?
Dental implants are a great way to replace teeth. Dr. Barber will work with an oral surgeon for your implant placement. He’ll then complete your treatment by attaching a dental restoration to your implants. You can get a dental crown to replace one tooth, a bridge to replace several teeth, or dentures to replace many teeth. If you’d rather not get implants, you can still get a traditional bridge or traditional dentures.
What Treatments Do You Offer to Make My Smile Look Better?
We offer several cosmetic dental treatments to beautify your smile. We can cover a wide variety of flaws like chips and stains with either dental veneers or tooth bonding. Dr. Barber can help you determine which one is best for your smile. You can also get a professional-strength teeth whitening treatment to use at home that will brighten your smile up to five shades in just a few days.
Can You Help Me With Sleep Apnea Treatment?
Dr. Barber can help diagnose and treat sleep apnea. If results from your evaluation in our Plymouth, MI dentist office indicate apnea, he can refer you to a sleep specialist for a formal diagnosis. He can also fit you for a custom oral appliance to eliminate sleep apnea symptoms. The appliance works by gently moving your jaw forward while you sleep, which keeps your airway open.
Can I Get Dental Sedation?
You can choose from two kinds of safe dental sedation to ease your anxiety or just make it easier to stay relaxed during a lengthy procedure. Inhaled sedation (“laughing gas”) provides a light level of relaxation and wears off so quickly you’ll be able to drive yourself home after your treatment. Oral sedation, in the form of FDA-approved medication, offers a deeper level of relaxation.
