Repairing the Strength of Your Smile
If you have experienced damage to your smile, Dr. Thomas E. Condron and his team in Clarksburg, WV can help restore it back to health. When performing a restorative treatment, Dr. Condron schedules you for an appointment time in which he will be able to complete the treatment with thorough care and attention to detail.
Most restorations are completed using the rubber dam isolation method, which provides increased precision and better results. We work with patients of all ages, welcoming them and helping them feel as comfortable as possible while receiving the high-quality restorative care they deserve!
Crowns & Bridges
Crowns and bridges are fixed prosthetic devices that are cemented onto either existing teeth or dental implants. A crown is a “cap” that is placed over a tooth after a root canal, and helps restore the strength and aesthetic appearance of the smile . A bridge is a device that is used to replace a missing tooth or fill a gap. It is a crown that is held in place by surrounding crowns that have been placed on the teeth on either side of the gap. Without teeth, crowns or bridges to fill an empty space in your smile, there could be possible bone and jaw damage.
A dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically placed into the gums. This post will serve as the foundation of an artificial tooth. In the course of a few months, the post will fuse to the jawbone. Once fully fused we are able to finish the process by placing a crown on the implanted post, at which point the implant will have the appearance and function of a natural tooth.
A patient must have sufficient jaw bone to support a dental implant. Dr. Condron will work with you to discuss your options and determine if you are a candidate for implant surgery.
If you have experienced gum damage due to gingivitis or periodontitis, or if your jaw is misshapen, periodontal surgery can correct the problem. This type of surgery involves repairing or reshaping the structures that support the teeth, including gum tissues and jawbone.
Root Canals & Endodontic Treatment
When an infection or decay has reached the nerve of the tooth, a root canal can resolve the problem. We will remove the infected tooth materials, disinfecting the inside of the tooth to eliminate remaining bacteria. After the root canal, the tooth is protected by the placement of a crown to prevent further damage.
