Restorative Care

    • Tooth colored composite resin fillings (white)

  • Amalgam fillings (silver fillings)
  • Direct and Indirect gold fillings. There is a reason they call it the gold standard. Nothing lasts longer and is more biocompatible in the mouth than gold. Many dental professionals seek out Dr. Goslin to perform gold restorations in their teeth as they know of his proficiency in this area and appreciate the longevity of gold.

Endodontic Care

Root canal therapy: Trauma or infection can irreversibly damage the nerve of a tooth. A root canal is performed to save the tooth and stop the pain and infection by removing of the terminal end of the nerve from the tooth root. The root is then backfilled with a medicated filling to ensure healing and preservation of the natural tooth. Often these teeth require crowns after the root canal procedure to support the remaining tooth structure.

Prosthodontics

Crowns (gold, porcelain and implant crowns): Crowns, also known as caps, cover and restore a broken down tooth to its normal shape and size. A crown is necessary when the tooth has a deep fracture or if the tooth has a very large filling that can undermine the remaining structure. The crown will support the tooth and restore its appearance if it is discolored or misshapen. A crown is also used to cover a dental implant with a replacement tooth.

Bridges: Sometimes called a fixed partial denture, a bridge replaces missing teeth and literally bridges the gap where one or more teeth have been lost. The restoration can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain or a combination of these materials and is bonded onto surrounding teeth for support. 

Inlays and Onlays: Some teeth require a restoration that is between a filling and a crown. When enough of the supporting tooth structure can be preserved, and inlay or onlay can provide the same support as a crown while leaving the remaining tooth uncovered. These restorations are fabricated out of gold or porcelain in a lab and fitted into the tooth permanently.

Removable Partial Dentures, Overlay Partials, and Full Dentures

Full Mouth Reconstruction: All teeth are restored if you need more than just a few crowns and you have complicating structural issues like a deep bite of supraeruption of teeth. This is often Multidisciplinary Dentistry involving Periodontics, Orthodontics, Enodontics, Oral Surgery and Prosthodontics.

Implants

Surgical placement of implants: Implants are replacement tooth roots made out of medical-grade titanium, just like an artificial knee or hip. These are placed into the jaw bone and allowed to heal before restoring with a permanent replacement tooth. Dr. Goslin provides full-service implant therapy from extraction and bone grafting to surgical placement of the implant and final restoration.

Restoration of existing implants: Some patients already have previously placed implants that require restoration, or they need a new or different prosthesis. Under certain circumstances, Dr. Goslin can convert removable dentures into fixed crowns and bridges.

Coordination with surgical specialists: There are cases that require implant placement at a specialist's facility depending on the patient's desire for full sedation or other variables. In this event, Dr. Goslin integrates his preparation and final restoration plan with the surgical portion performed by the specialist.

Cosmetic

Smile Design: If you have always wanted to change the appearance of your smile, Dr. Goslin can consult with you to develop a plan to achieve your ideal results by reshaping, restoring or replacing tooth structure with tooth-colored bonding, crowns or veneers. Periodontal procedures can address gum line inconsistencies and orthodontics can correct a deep or open bite. 

Orthodontic

Invisalign and other clear aligner systems: These removable tray systems allow you to straighten your teeth without having stainless steel brackets and wires. Learn more at invisalign.com. Also see resources at the bottom of the page.

Complex Prosthetics

  • Implant- and tooth-supported removable partial and full dentures
  • Fixed implant supported bridges and full-mouth reconstruction
  • Obturator prosthetics: these appliances replace missing intraoral structures such as the soft palate.

Complex Surgical Procedures

Sinus lifts: These bone grafts are placed in the back of the upper jaw to restore lost bone and allow for implant placement.

Periodontics

Gum grafts: To remedy severe gum recession and/or improve cosmetic appearance.

Frenectomy:

  • Surgical repositioning of lip muscle attachments to prevent recession.
  • Repair and maintenance of the supporting tissues (gums and bone) around the teeth.

Sleep Apnea

Oral appliances to open the airway to help alleviate sleep apnea and severe snoring.

CPAP - Continuous Positive Air Pressure Device.  Considered standard treatment for Moderate to Severe Apnea.

For Mild to Moderate Apnea, this style of oral device is often much better tolerated.

TMD Care

Care and management of temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) through diagnostic imagery and comprehensive examination.

CBCT (cone beam computed tomography) scanning

This is a mini cat scanner for the teeth and jaws that enables diagnosis of abnormalities and evaluation of the joints and airway that is not possible with standard radiography. It is also used for surgically guided CAD/CAM implant placement.
