Dental emergencies are a very painful and scary event. In most cases, teeth become fractured by trauma, grinding, eating hard foods. An immediate treatment is always required to alleviate pain and ensure your teeth have the best possible dental care and the best chance of survival.
The virtually invisible aligners, which are made of a thermoplastic material uniquely developed for the Invisalign treatment plan, look similar to teeth-whitening trays. A series of Invisalign aligners are custom-made for you, to move your teeth in the sequence determined by your doctor. Each set of aligners is worn for about two weeks before moving onto the next set of aligners in your treatment plan.
Oral surgery is the removal of teeth, including wisdom teeth. Extracting wisdom teeth can be a source of anxiety for many patients, which is why the dentists at Mount Pleasant Dental are happy to offer sedation options for all our patients. Please remember that early removal of wisdom teeth means that there will be much less of a chance for complications to occur.

Crown lengthening treatment adjusts the levels of your gum and bone, it is done to expose more of the tooth so it can be properly restored. Sometimes the procedure is done to improve “gummy” smiles; this occurs when there is an excess amount of gum tissue surrounding the teeth and the teeth appear smaller in size.
Inlays and onlays are partial crowns; they use the existing tooth structure as a base to fit the inlay or only on to the tooth. This procedure is done to give strength to the tooth and to help prevent possible damage. Depending on the severity of the decay the dentist will recommend either an inlay or an onlay.
