Whether you are a new patient or an old friend, welcome to our site. We have been serving the communities of Port Charlotte, North Port, Punta Gorda, Englewood, Venice, and more since 1985. Although we have been here for more than 30 years, we continue to keep on top of new research, trends, and technology in dentistry. That means giving our website a new look as well.
Despite the new look, the reasons you should come to our Port Charlotte, FL dental office have not changed. We still offer long-lasting, high-quality dental treatments in a relaxed, beautiful environment. Here are some of the treatments we offer.
Dental Crowns And Bridges
If you are suffering from just a small amount of tooth decay, we can normally repair the damage with a tooth-colored filling. But if the damage is a bit larger, you can get a dental crown. These caps are made to look like your natural teeth. They completely cover the visible part of the tooth. Not only does this seal up any damaged area, but it also makes the tooth much stronger. Crowns can also be used to fill in the space left by a missing tooth with a bridge, a device that holds a replacement tooth in that gap, which is carefully crafted to look and feel natural in your smile.
For a more permanent solution to a missing tooth, dental implants cannot be beat. They use a replacement tooth or teeth just like a bridge, but they also use a titanium root implanted in the jawbone beneath the space left by a missing tooth. This gives the implant much more strength and durability compared to a bridge, and because its root mimics the natural tooth root’s function, it helps protect the jawbone from deterioration.
We know that dental anxiety is a real thing, which is why we go out of our way to help you feel comfortable. Our office has a coffee bar, Wi-Fi, and even Kindle Fires to read while you wait. We have “comfort menus” that list all the things offered to help you relax, such as headphones and blankets. We also offer two types of sedation for when you need extra help relaxing: nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and oral medication.
At Dietrich Dental Services, we have the right combination of experience, technology, and treatment options. If you have any questions about how we can help with your dental care, or to schedule your next appointment, you can call us at 941-625-7877 or use our convenient online form. We look forward to speaking with you.
