At Poway Dental Arts, we know how discouraging it can be to deal with tooth injury or loss. Our team focuses on cultivating a positive atmosphere and a supportive chair-side manner to get you back on track. Thanks to modern restorative dentistry techniques, dental problems aren't the end of the world—we can fix your smile up with just a few visits to our Poway dental office!
Dr. Rich treats our patients like family, so you can be sure that all of our treatment recommendations are ethical and carefully considered. We would not recommend anything for you that we wouldn't recommend for our loved ones. At Poway Dental Arts, our goal is Beautiful Healthy Smiles. No matter how much your mouth has suffered, whether it's a simple cavity or full tooth loss, we have the team & technology to help you smile brightly again.
Tooth-Colored Dental Tooth Fillings
For small cavities, tooth-colored dental tooth fillings are an excellent choice. To protect your overall health, Dr. Rich only uses mercury-free fillings to treat cavities. Not only are they safer, but they’re also more attractive.
Gentle Root Canal Therapy
If your tooth is suffering from a large crack, cavity, severe pain, or an abscess, Dr. Rich might recommend gentle root canal therapy to help save it.
If the idea of a root canal makes you feel nervous, don’t let it! We will make sure you are fully "numbed up." Your comfort is always our priority at Poway Dental Arts and we have oral sedation options or laughing gas available to help you relax during root canal therapy. Some people even fall asleep during their root canal!
CEREC Same-Day Dental Crowns
Dr. Rich is certified to use the CEREC crown restoration system. This system makes it possible for patients to receive a customized crown on the same day of their appointment rather than having to wait 2 weeks for a crown to be created and placed.
You don’t have to live with a gap in your smile! Our Poway dental practice offers metal free bridges, crafted from porcelain and Zirconia to replace your missing tooth. These oral prostheses are made up of two or more crowns that fill a gap in missing teeth. The crown on either end is called an "abutment," and is bonded onto existing teeth to support the bridge.
Are you missing one or more of your teeth? Dental implants could be the best solution to restore your natural smile. Dental implants are titanium posts implanted in your jaw that act as artificial “tooth roots”, permanently anchoring your new tooth, bridge or denture.
Due to its biocompatible properties, the titanium fuses with your natural bone to create a strong base for your replacement crown. Your replacement tooth will be carefully crafted to look natural and fit into your smile seamlessly.
Dental Implant Restoration
Problems with dental implants are rare, but they do happen. If you notice your dental implant has loosened, is causing your gum to swell, or the crown on top of your implant is cracked, call Dr. Rich right away! A dental implant can’t fix itself and if you try to treat it yourself, you could end up causing more damage to your mouth.
All-on-4® Dental Implants
With All-on-4 dental implants are stabilized together with a prosthesis to allow you to use your teeth immediately. If you are a good candidate for All-on-4 dental implants, you can expect to have your teeth in just one day! Everyone’s case is unique but the majority of the work will be done by Dr. Rich before the implant surgery.
Full And Partial Dentures
For patients missing all of their teeth, we offer traditional dentures to give you back the function, feel and appearance of your natural teeth. For optimal aesthetics, we also offer flexible smile replacements for partial areas of missing teeth. If you already have dentures, but hate the way they fit, we offer an implant retainment option for greater stability. We can even retro-fit your existing dentures to snap into place!
Implant Retained Dentures
Implant retained dentures can significantly restore the wearer’s quality of life. Our Poway dental patients can be more confident during their daily activities with the superior chewing and speaking capabilities our durable implant retained dentures provide. Using mini dental implants, Dr. Rich can install your prosthesis in just one appointment.
