Whether you need new dentures, dental implants, or any other type of restorative dentistry, rely on us to provide you with a renewed and sturdy smile.
Dental implants involve creating a completely artificial tooth to replace a missing one. A titanium peg is inserted into the gum in place of the missing tooth. Once this implant heals, it serves as a permanent attachment point for an artificial tooth called a pontic. Implants can be used as anchor points for a single tooth, a dental bridge, or even partial or complete dentures.
Here at Henrickson Dental, we use CEREC technology, an innovative approach to creating custom dental crowns while you wait in the office. These precisely-machined crowns match the look of natural teeth and can be used to help correct a number of dental problems by protecting already damaged natural teeth from getting any worse.
The temporomandibular joint, a point just below the ear that provides the ability for your jaw to open, close, and slide side to side, can be a source of pain and discomfort for many patients. However, there are ways to treat TMJ pain – and Henrickson Dental has dentists that are skilled and experienced in TMJ therapies designed to reduce or eliminate the symptoms of this painful condition.
When a patient has several missing teeth or have many teeth that have advanced tooth decay, dentures are a common treatment. We’re able to create a custom set of either full or partial dentures depending on your needs and the number of teeth you need replaced, providing you with a renewed ability to chew and talk with ease and confidence.

One of the most effective treatments for a patient missing teeth that doesn’t involve extensive surgery, dental bridges can restore your smile while also making it easier for you to speak clearly and chew more easily. These sets of porcelain teeth are designed to fill in a gap left by a tooth that has fallen out by anchoring to your existing teeth on either side of the gap, providing support both for those teeth and protection against infection in the hole left behind by your missing tooth. Highly durable, dental bridges can last for a very long time, especially when combined with proper dental hygiene.

Two similar types of indirect fillings, inlays and onlays are typically used as a treatment for large regions of damage or decay. Highly effective at providing for a natural smile while also strengthening the structure of the tooth, inlays and onlays are made of a composite resin that matches the color of your existing teeth, making them nearly imperceptible.
