At Todd L. Jolly, DMD, our goal is to prevent dental problems before they occur. Unfortunately, this is not always possible due to poor oral hygiene, genetics, infrequent checkups, and other risk factors. This is why we also specialize in restorative dentistry. Our restorative services are designed to improve the function and aesthetics of your smile, as well as your overall oral health.
Dental fillings are the best way to restore minor to moderate instances of tooth decay. Most fillings these days consist of a material known as composite resin. Composite resin is an aesthetically-pleasing material that we color-match to the existing shade of your enamel. For this reason, a composite filling is virtually indistinguishable from the rest of your tooth.

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that improves the structure and cosmetics of a damaged or decayed tooth. During the procedure, your tooth must be completely reshaped to accommodate the shape of the crown. Once the tooth is reshaped, we will permanently bond the crown to the enamel using a special adhesive. Many crowns are fabricated these days with porcelain, due to its unmatched aesthetics.

Missing teeth can lead to serious complications later down the road, such as a misaligned bite, crooked teeth, and bone deterioration. Luckily, patients have more tooth replacement options than ever before. At Todd L. Jolly, DMD we specialize in several full-tooth restorations, including dental implant restoration. This means we do not place dental implants instead we restore dental implants and preserve the implant crowns. Dental implants have revolutionized the way we treat tooth loss. Thanks to their many benefits, it's no wonder that implants have become the industry standard for tooth replacement. An implant-supported restoration is the next best thing to your natural teeth!

A dental bridge is a tooth replacement that typically consists of two dental crowns linked together by a pontic, or false tooth. A traditional bridge is supported by the two surrounding teeth, known as abutment teeth, that we reshape to receive the crowns. A bridge can also be supported by a series of dental implants if multiple adjacent teeth are missing. If you are missing a tooth, a bridge will prevent the remaining teeth from shifting out of their proper position.

The benefits of choosing an implant restoration far out-weigh the negatives. Implants are permanent, they prevent bone loss, and are aesthetically pleasing. An implant functions almost exactly as a natural tooth would. Some patients report not being able to distinguish the difference. More importantly, restorations will not negatively impact the health of adjacent teeth or gum tissue, and if cared for properly, will last you upwards of thirty years.

Implant Supported Dentures
Because the appliance is retained by dental implants, an overdenture has some benefits over traditional dentures. The use of implants helps stabilize the appliance, which improves the effectiveness and durability of your treatment. Even though it is still removable, your overdenture will remain secure as you eat, speak, smile, and yawn.

Dentures: Complete, Partial & Custom
A denture is a removable appliance that is usually used to replace one or more missing teeth. A partial denture usually attaches to the surrounding teeth with metal clasps. A complete denture consists of a flesh-colored acrylic base that supports a complete arch of prosthetic teeth. We offer custom-fit dentures as a more comfortable, functional, and durable solution.

At Todd L. Jolly, DMD, we endeavor to give you a smile that inspires pride and confidence, and our advanced periodontal treatment can provide a healthy base for that smile. Also known as gum disease, periodontal disease is a very common oral problem that can cause both tooth loss and severe systemic health issues if left untreated.
Learn how periodontal care can help restore you teeth and and gums.
There are two types of tooth extractions: simple and surgical. We perform a simple extraction on a tooth that has already erupted above the gumline. We perform a surgical extraction on a tooth that has become impacted, or has yet to erupt, such as wisdom teeth. Extraction may be necessary to prevent the spread of infection and other complications.
