See all the ways Dr. Kathy Curtis helps patients get back their smiles.
Many people suffer from fear of the dentist or struggle to sit in the same position for an extended period. As well as our trained, caring team, we offer another form of relaxation - sedation dentistry.
During your dental treatment, we can use nitrous oxide to help you relax and ensure you don't feel a thing. This form of sedation dentistry is both safe and non-invasive. Please ask us more about sedation when you make your next dental appointment.
Millions of people suffer from sleep apnea; a condition that can take over your life and cause distressing symptoms. This common condition causes excessive snoring, headaches, body aches, fatigue, and if left untreated, sleep apnea can have a detrimental effect on your everyday life and full body health.
We treat sleep apnea with a non-invasive sleep device provided by Dr. Curtis. However, the cure is not a one-size-fits-all. During your visit, we will advise you on the ideal treatment for your specific needs.
Crowns & Bridges
Crowns are synthetic caps usually made of porcelain and placed on top of a tooth. Crowns are used to restore the function and appearance of a damaged tooth. They can be used to cover implants, prevent a cracked tooth from worsening or fix a chipped tooth. Crowns are natural-looking and custom-made to match the color of your teeth.
To place the crown, an impression is made of the existing tooth and a custom crown is made at a dental lab. In some cases, a temporary crown is set until the permanent one is ready to be cemented into place. Once the crown is ready, the existing tooth is prepared, and the crown is fixed in place.
Bridges are a natural-looking and barely-noticeable
There are many options for bridges and Dr. Curtis would be happy to talk with you about the best solution for your smile.
Do you have a missing tooth? Then, dental implants might be the answer for you. These implants are a great replacement for missing teeth as they look and function like a real tooth.
Dental implants are placed to mimic the root of a tooth and then a replacement tooth, or implant retained denture or bridge is fitted into place.
Dr. Curtis understands the stress a missing tooth can bring and will advise you on the best type of implant treatment for your situation.
One common restoration is that of a composite (tooth-colored) dental filling. These are used to repair damage caused by tooth decay, cracks, and fractures. A filling uses safe materials that look just like your natural tooth and restore functionality. Most fillings take only one visit to complete.
To start the procedure, Dr. Curtis will remove any tooth decay, clean the area thoroughly, and prepare it for the filling. Next, the filling will be carefully placed, shaped, and polished to restore your tooth. It will look and function just like your natural tooth.
At Downtown Dentistry, we offer partial dentures as a perfect solution for those who are missing multiple teeth. Dentures not only replace teeth but also prevent other teeth from shifting. They are both durable and look just like your natural teeth. If cared for, partial dentures can last many years. However, repairs and adjustments are normal after years of use.
A partial denture is created by taking an impression of your remaining teeth, measurements of your jaw, and determining the color and shape of the new teeth. Then at a dental lab, the denture is created. After this, it is precisely placed by your dentist.
There are both permanent and removable dentures available.
‘‘ Not the standard dentist office, which is nice. Everyone was super nice, and actually took the time to explain things, rather than just say, "you need to floss more". Big tall windows make for a nice view too! ’’
