|URGENT MESSAGE TO PATIENTS: We have been following the news and information coming out about the novel virus COVID-19. After taking the last few days to assess the situation, we have decided to close for non-emergency appointments for the next two weeks. For the safety of our staff, patients, and also to help prevent the spread of this virus and keep our entire community healthy and safe, we feel this is the right thing to do. Due to the nature of our work, it is in everyone's best interest to do our part and make this hard decision so that we can help slow the transmission of this virus and flatten the curve. We are in a position to stop the critical spread before the government has made this decision for us because we believe it is our responsiblity to everyone in the community. We understand this a major inconvenience and will work to get you rescheduled as soon as possible. If you are having a toothache or emergency, please call our office and as long as you are healthy and showing no symptoms, we will see you on an emergency basis. If you have any of the symptoms (fever, runny nose, cough, sneezing), or if you have been around anyone who has any of those symptoms, we will have to refer you to the local emergency room so they can take strong cautions to protect you from spreading the virus, while also treating your pain. We also believe that the masks and gloves that we would be using in our office for healthy patients receiving routine cleanings is irresponsible and should be donated to ER facilities so that they can you use them to fight this virus. We will be working hard to contact all patients currently in the schedule through March 26th. If you receive any e-mail or text reminders during that time for appointments, please know that was an accident. Please be patient with us as we navigate these uncharted waters.|
To ensure overall oral health, missing or damaged teeth need to be replaced or restored by a licensed dentist. At Greashaber Dentistry, you will be provided with a personalized treatment plan that is right for you to get your smile back to its best. Read below about some of the restorative services we offer.
Composite FillingsFillings are used to restore areas of your tooth affected by decay. At Greashaber Dentistry we use composite (tooth-colored) materials to "fill in" the surface of the tooth after all decay has been removed.

Dental CrownsA crown is a covering that will wrap and protect the entire surface of a tooth, allowing it to look and function just like the original tooth.

Dental BridgesA dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is one of the traditional dental methods for replacing missing teeth.

Inlays & OnlaysInlays and onlays are used to restore portions of the tooth, or to strengthen a tooth. They are alternatives to using fillings or a crown to restore the integrity of the tooth.

Implant Crowns and BridgesAn implant crown is an ideal way to replace one or multiple missing teeth. First, a titanium root is placed by an Oral Surgeon or a Periodontist. Then, 3–4 months later, Dr. Greashaber will place a crown on top of that titanium root that is custom fit to each patient's space. Implant Bridges involve placing at least two titanium roots and connecting them to restore large spaces where multiple teeth are missing. Implants are a great cosmetic and long-term solution to tooth loss.
Root Canal TherapyA "root canal," or endodontic therapy, is a procedure available to save a tooth that is infected and would otherwise require extraction. There are many reasons that teeth can become infected, including: cavities, previous large fillings, crowns, cracks, trauma, and extreme wear.
Read more about Root Canal Therapy.
ExtractionsA tooth extraction is the procedure done to remove a tooth that is damaged beyond repair from its socket in the jawbone. Extractions are also done to remove wisdom teeth that may be impacted or create future problems.

Dentures & PartialsDentures are a "replacement" option for missing teeth. There are two variations of dentures: partial dentures and full dentures.
