Restoring Dental Function

At Tavormina Dentistry we do the most basic general dentistry to the most advanced reconstructive dentistry available.  It’s an interesting thing, but when patients come to us because they can’t function, we restore them to full function, of course, but, they also receive the benefit of having the beauty of a brand new functional smile.

We find that so many people are in a position where they literally are dental cripples.  What’s a dental cripple?  Someone who cannot chew their food properly, someone who can’t eat the foods that they enjoy, someone who can only eat basically baby food, someone who suffers with constant pain because of ill-fitting dentures or partial dentures, or someone who suffers from pain from decayed and infected teeth that need extraction or root canal therapy.  There also are social ramifications to all the functional problems.  Too many people can’t smile with freedom because they are too embarrassed to show their teeth, or they don’t have any teeth at all.  There are people who can’t or won’t socialize or eat out in a restaurant, because they can’t chew their food or are afraid their teeth will move or fall out.

We are so thankful that we can make a difference in these peoples’ lives by restoring their dental function and beauty at the same time.  When people find themselves with limited function and they are ready to do something about it, we have a full arsenal of dental procedures to come to their rescue.  We are comprehensively trained in all aspects of dental implants, which are designed to replace missing tooth roots and act as the foundation for an entire new functional dental life.  Depending on the age of the patient and the amount of remaining bone, regular dental implants or mini dental implants can be used as a solution to missing teeth.  Of course, there is always conventional crown and bridgework available, when that’s the best way to restore function.  We do provide removable dentures and partial dentures when necessary, but always aim for restoring our patients to function as closely to how Mother nature intended, and to be able to smile freely and with confidence.
