Missing, Decayed or Broken-Down Teeth?

Missing, decayed and broken-down teeth can heavily detract from your oral health and smile and cause pain. Dr. Sabourin will always try to save your teeth where possible with gum disease treatment and using durable and natural-looking crowns and fillings. If you do need to extract broken-down teeth, or you have teeth that are already missing, Dr. Sabourin is highly skilled and experienced in replacing teeth. He uses various procedures to help you regain your smile as well as your chewing power.


Natural-Looking, Durable Crowns and Bridges

Dental crownDr. Sabourin uses a variety of materials to make crowns that are aesthetic and durable. He works personally with top-notch, accredited American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry labs to ensure high-quality restoration when placing your crown.

One of the options for missing teeth is a dental bridge. Dr. Sabourin creates dental bridges that look like real teeth, with similar surface texture and translucency.. However, dental bridges require the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth or teeth to be capped in order to support the bridge. This means healthy teeth will need to be cut down to fit the caps. For patients with healthy adjacent teeth, Dr. Sabourin recommends dental implants to replace teeth as they are healthier and generally longer-lasting. 


Full-Service Dental Implants

Dental implantIf you need to replace one or more teeth. Dr. Sabourin offers dental implant services, all of which he does in-house. If you need a full arch of teeth or have to replace dentures, Dr. Sabourin offers New Teeth in One Day procedures. 

Dr. Sabourin takes 3D X-rays using a dental CT scanner to plan the implant placement to ensure that your implants are correctly and comfortably placed. 

The first step is a Complimentary Consultation with Dr. Sabourin. He will do a visual exam, discuss your treatment options and answer any questions you have.


Full-Mouth Rehabilitation

Woman smilingA full-mouth rehabilitation is done when your whole mouth needs repair and rejuvenation. Missing, broken-down and badly aligned teeth can make chewing difficult or even painful and deprive you of eating foods you enjoy or are good for your health. When teeth go out of alignment, you can have problems with your jaw joint, the TMJ, which can lead to jaw pain, headaches and neck pain. Leaving teeth unreplaced can cause misalignment of  teeth and also result in jaw bone loss, due to the lack of stimulation from chewing.

A full-mouth rehabilitation also returns your teeth to a natural beauty, so you don’t have to be self-conscious any more. 

Dr. Sabourin uses various tools to give a beautiful and functional smile, including: 

  • Porcelain Veneers
  • Porcelain Crowns
  • Dental Bridges
  • Dental Implants
  • Implant-supported Bridges or Dentures
  • Composite Bonding
  • Invisalign®

Your first step to a rehabilitated smile is an exam, X-rays and consultation with Dr. Sabourin. He’ll give you a treatment plan with options, discuss your alternatives and answer any questions you have.  Call us at 858-452-2333 or click here to schedule your appointment..
