Dentures and Partials

Statistics indicate that people with missing teeth live shorter lives than those with solid, complete smiles. Dr. Rohrer can replace lost teeth with dentures or partials because without teeth, your smile's remaining teeth may begin to shift out of place, destroying your comfortable bite and leading to other problems. Prosthetic teeth like dentures allow patients to maintain good oral health and an active lifestyle.

When you lose just a few teeth, Dr. Rohrer can produce a set of partial dentures, which fill in gaps in your smile. And accordingly, patients who have lost all their teeth will receive a full set of dentures. Rohrer Cosmetic and Restorative Dentistry uses a quality dental lab to produce prosthetics that will feel comfortable and look natural.

Veneers and Laminates

Veneers Are A Painless Way to Bring Out A Permanent White, Healthy and Beautiful Smile!

If you have flaws in your front teeth that detract from your smile, porcelain veneers or no-prep veneers like DURAthins or Lumineers can transform your smile. Made from thin shells of porcelain, veneers hide imperfections and create a stunning, uniform smile. Dr. Rohrer can change the size, shape, and color of your front teeth with veneers.

When you choose traditional veneers, we schedule two appointments: at the first visit, Dr. Rohrer will prepare your teeth by taking molds and fitting you with temporary veneers. We will send the impressions to a quality dental lab, where a ceramist will handcraft your veneers. During your second visit, permanent placement will take place once we receive your custom veneers in our office.

1. Glutathione 50 milligrams three times per day
2. N-acetyl-L-Cysteine (NAC) 250mg two times per day
3. Methionine 1000 milligrams per day divided into 2 or 3 doses

Natural Looking Fillings

Say Goodbye to Dark and Ugly Fillings. Inlays and Onlays Fillings Are An Attractive Look for Your Teeth!
If you're embarrassed about your smile because of decay or dark fillings in your teeth, you may be a good candidate for composite resins. Being a silicon dioxide-filled, tooth-colored plastic mixture, composite resins can restore teeth to an attractive, healthy state. Composite resins represent several advantages over traditional silver, or amalgam, fillings.

We offer inlays, and onlays, which are two different types of fillings.

Inlays- Fillings that are in the tooth (gold or porcelain).
Onlays- Fillings that extend out onto the cusp of a tooth.

Porcelain Crowns

If you're self-conscious about cracked, broken, decayed, or worn teeth, we can bring back your healthy, natural-looking smile with dental crowns, also called caps. A crown can return structure, strength, and function to a tooth with extensive decay or damage. Designed to fit snugly and function as a healthy tooth, a crown will protect your tooth from further damage and preserve the jaw's correct natural alignment. Porcelain is a great restorative material for use in cosmetic dentistry, it is translucent and highly resistant to staining, which results in a permanently white, natural-looking restoration. Drs Rohrer offer porcelain crowns to provide the best possible restoration.

ZOOM! Teeth Whitening

The Zoom! light-activated whiteninggel's active ingredients hydrogen peroxide. As the hydrogen peroxide is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin, bleaching colored substances while the structure of the tooth is unchanged. The Zoom! light aids in activating the hydrogen peroxide and helps it penetrate the surface of the tooth. A study has shown that use of the Zoom! lamp increases the effectiveness of the Zoom! gel by 26% or more, giving an average improvement of up to eight shades. Zoom! Tooth whitening is performed in Dr. Rohrer's office and takes about an hour to complete. Dr. Rohrer will start by prepping your teeth, followed by up to 45 minutes of bleaching, while you wait in the office.

Root Canals

Before root canals, teeth with diseased nerves have been removed from the mouth. However now most of the diseased tooth can be salvaged. In the majority of cases, the root canal procedure is a simple treatment that involves minimal patient discomfort.

Within the walls of each tooth, a strand of dental pulp – the substance that supplies the tooth with nerves, nutrients, connective tissue and blood vessels – laces downward into the root. If the dental pulp becomes diseased, the pulp dies, cutting off the nutrients and nerve signals which the tooth needs to be healthy. If the diseased pulp is left in the tooth, the tooth will become infected, forcing it to need extraction.

The procedures called root canals allow Dr. Rohrer to remove the pulp, clean the canal and seal the tooth, effectively protecting and saving the tooth. Dr. Rohrer will start by creating an opening through the crown of the tooth into the dental pulp chamber. The pulp is then removed, the canal cleaned out, and the pulp chamber is permanently filled. Dr. Rohrer will proceed by putting in a temporary filling.  Afterwards, the temporary filling will be replaced with a permanent filling or a crown, depending on the location of the tooth within the mouth.

Call us to learn more about the root canal treatment and whether or not this option is right for you.

Toothaches

"Toothache" usually refers to pain around the teeth or jaws primarily as a result of a dental condition. Common dental causes of toothaches include dental cavities, dental abscess, gum disease, irritation of the tooth root, cracked tooth syndrome, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, impaction, and eruption. The intensity can range from chronic and mild to sharp and excruciating. The pain may be aggravated by chewing or by cold or heat. Dr. Rohrer will conduct a thorough oral examination, which includes dental X-rays, and can determine whether the toothache is coming from a tooth or jaw problem and the cause.

Dental cavities & dental abscess

The most common cause of a toothache is a dental cavity. Dental cavities are holes in the two outer layers of a tooth called the enamel and the dentin. Both layers serve to protect the inner living tooth tissue called the pulp, where blood vessels and nerves reside. Certain bacteria in the mouth convert simple sugars into acid which softens and dissolves the enamel and dentin, creating cavities. Small, shallow cavities may not cause pain and may be unnoticed by the patient. The larger deeper cavities can be painful and collect food debris. Severe injury to the pulp can lead to the death of pulp tissue, resulting in tooth infection (dental abscess). A small swelling or "gum blister" may be present near the affected tooth as well. Toothaches from these larger cavities are the most common reason for visits to dentists.

Treatment of a small and shallow cavity usually involves a dental filling. Treatment of a larger cavity involves an onlay or crown. Treatment for a cavity that has penetrated and injured the pulp or for an infected tooth is either a root canal procedure or extraction of the affected tooth. The root canal procedure involves removing the dying pulp tissue (thus avoiding or removing tooth infection) and replacing it with an inert filling material. The procedure is used in an attempt to save the dying tooth from extraction. Once a root canal procedure is done, the tooth is more prone to fracture and will oftentimes require a crown to protect it.

Gum disease

The second most common cause of toothache is gum disease (periodontal disease). Gum disease refers to inflammation of the soft tissue (gingiva) and abnormal loss of bone that surrounds and holds the teeth in place. Gum disease is caused by toxins secreted by certain bacteria in "plaque" that accumulate over time along and under the gum line. This plaque is a mixture of food, saliva, and bacteria. An early symptom of gum disease is gum bleeding without pain. Pain is a symptom of more advanced gum disease as the loss of bone around the teeth leads to the formation of deep gum pockets. Bacteria in these pockets cause gum infection, swelling, pain, and further bone destruction. Advanced gum disease can cause loss of otherwise healthy teeth. Gum disease is complicated by such factors as poor oral hygiene, family history of gum disease, smoking, and family history of diabetes.

Treatment of gum disease always involves oral hygiene and removal of bacterial plaque and tartar (hardened plaque). Moderate to advanced gum disease usually requires a thorough cleaning of the teeth and teeth roots called "scaling and root planing" and "subgingival curettage." Scaling and root planing is the removal of plaque and tartar from exposed teeth roots while subgingival curettage refers to the removal of the surface of the inflamed layer of gum tissue. Both of these procedures are usually performed under local anesthesia and may be accompanied by the use of oral antibiotics to overcome gum infection or abscess. Follow-up treatment, if necessary, may include various types of gum operations. In advanced gum disease with significant bone destruction and loosening of teeth, teeth splinting or teeth extractions may be necessary.

Tooth root sensitivities

Toothache can also be caused by exposed tooth roots. Typically, the roots are the lower two-thirds of the teeth that are normally buried in bone. The bacterial toxins dissolve the bone around the roots and cause the gum and the bone to recede, exposing the roots. The condition of exposed roots is called "recession." The exposed roots can become extremely sensitive to cold, hot, and sour foods because they are no longer protected by healthy gum and bone.

Early stages of root exposure can be treated with topical fluoride gels applied by the dentist or with special toothpastes (such as Sensodyne or Denquel) which contain fluorides and other minerals. These minerals are absorbed by the surface layer of the roots to make the roots stronger and less sensitive to the oral environment. Dentists may also apply "bonding agents" to the exposed roots to seal the sensitive areas. If the root exposure causes injury and death of the inner living pulp tissue of the tooth, then a root canal procedure or tooth extraction may be necessary.

Cracked tooth syndrome

"Cracked tooth syndrome" refers to a toothache caused by a broken tooth (tooth fracture) without associated cavity or advanced gum disease. Biting on the area of tooth fracture can cause severe sharp pains. These fractures are usually due to chewing or biting hard objects such as hard candies, pencils, nuts, etc. Your dentist can usually detect the fracture by painting a special dye on the cracked tooth or shining a special light on the tooth. Treatment usually involves protecting the tooth with a full-coverage crown made of gold and/or porcelain. However, if placing a crown does not relieve pain symptoms, a root canal procedure may be necessary.

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders

Disorders of the temporomandibular joint(s) can cause pain which usually occurs in or around the ears or lower jaw. The TMJ hinges the lower jaw (mandible) to the skull and is responsible for the ability to chew or talk. TMJ disorders can be caused by different types of problems such as injury (such as a blow to the face), arthritis, or jaw muscle fatigue from habitually clenching or grinding teeth. Habitual clenching or grinding of teeth, a condition called "bruxism," can cause pain in the joints, jaw muscles, and the teeth involved. Bruxism is often due to life "stress," family history of bruxism, and poor bite alignment. Sometimes, muscles around the TMJ used for chewing can go into spasm, causing head and neck pain and difficulty opening the mouth normally. These muscle spasms are aggravated by chewing or by stress, which cause the patients to clench their teeth and further tighten these muscles. Temporary TMJ pain can also result from recent dental work or by the trauma of extracting impacted wisdom teeth.

Treatment of temporo-mandibular joint pain usually involves oral anti-inflammatory over-the counter (OTC) drugs like ibuprofen (Motrin or Advil) or naproxen (Aleve). Other measures include warm moist compresses to relax the joint areas, stress reduction, and/or eating soft foods that do not require much chewing. If bruxism is diagnosed by a dentist, a bite appliance (night guard) may be recommended that is worn during the night to protect the teeth. However, this bite appliance is used mainly to protect the teeth and may not help with joint pain. For more serious cases of joint pain, a referral to a TMJ specialist may be necessary to determine further treatment.

Impaction & eruption

Dental pain can come from teeth that are erupting (tooth growing out or "cutting") or are impacted (tooth has failed to emerge into its proper position and remains under gum and/or bone). When a molar (the large teeth at the back of the jaw) tooth erupts, the surrounding gum can become inflamed and swollen. Impacted teeth cause pain when they put pressure onto other teeth or bone and are inflamed and/or infected. Treatment for impacted teeth is usually pain medication, antibiotics (for infections), and surgical removal. This most commonly occurs with impacted molar (wisdom) teeth.

Toothache At A Glance

  • The most common cause of a toothache is a dental cavity.
  • The second most common cause of toothache is gum disease.
  • A toothache can be caused by a problem that does not originate from a tooth or the jaw.
