When it comes to restoring damaged teeth, Dr. Crapo & Associates often use composite resin, a versatile filling material. Because composite fillings don’t contain mercury and match the colour of natural teeth, they’re ideal for repairing decayed, chipped, cracked, worn, and broken teeth, as well as to correct gaps between teeth.
Composite fillings are durable and can last for many years. They can be placed on your teeth is just one appointment, so you won’t have to come see us to have them replaced for a very long time. Contact Dr. Crapo & Associates to find out more about getting composite fillings.
When Dave first came to visit us about the discomfort in his jaw, he was suffering from something more common than most people realize. The pain stemmed from an alignment problem and was restricting him from even opening his mouth wide enough to eat properly. Without resorting to invasive surgery techniques, Dave underwent a rehabilitation program that gradually moved his jaw back to proper alignment.
“I was having some jaw problems and headache problems. I went to see [Dr. Crapo] and he confirmed with X-rays that… my jaw was out of alignment. It was about a 2-year process… but I got the latest model of splints [for my jaw], and I found him very creative. You feel welcome at the front end… and everyone’s just been excellent I’ve found.”
