Dr. Prior of Maryville Family Dental have extensive experience working with those with different needs & we address them all! We provide top of the line dental check-up visits, sealants, & patient/parent education. We place a high emphasis on tooth sealants, which are effective in preventing cavities on the chewing surfaces of teeth. Sealants are one of the easiest preventive services we offer, and are sometimes less expensive than the cost of an average tooth filling.
Dr. Prior delights in the detail of restoring your smile to its natural beauty. With advances in modern dental technology, this can be accomplished with ease. The options for restoring your smile are virtually limitless. State-of-the-art ceramic materials combined with Dr. Prior’s skills can assure you of a result that will last. Crowns can now be used to replace the chewing surfaces of a tooth when it has become damaged or has decay that is too extensive to fix with an ordinary filling. These are craftfully made in the laboratory to fit over the existing tooth and protect it from further damage or decay.
In some cases, a tooth must be removed in order to ensure the overall health of your dental smile. In these rare cases, Dr. Prior can create a beautiful custom replacement. A bridge is a fixed replacement option that is cemented in place and does not need to be removed for maintenance. A partial is a removable replacement option that can be easily taken out to clean. Both options are excellent and are hand-crafted by Dr. Prior and our skilled laboratory to ensure proper fit and durability.
