You may have been through the routine before. The dentist tells you that
a broken tooth needs a crown. The tooth gets prepared, an impression is
taken, and a temporary crown is installed. You then have to wait up to two
weeks to return to the dentist for the installation of the permanent crown.
If the fit isn't just right, sometimes it has to go back to the lab and you
wait again. And return to the dentist again.
But now, that's all changed. Dr. Butler can reduce that two-week waiting period and the two or three office visits to ONE visit with new technology! The Planmeca FIT™ System is a computer-aided design and milling device that we have here in our office. It allows us to create a permanent crown on site. Forget about waiting for the lab or making return trips to the dentist. Patients love it!
The Planmeca FIT™ System eliminates the need for gooey impressions. It makes temporaries unnecessary, too, and enables us to satisfy patients seeking a long-lasting, esthetic alternative to silver or plastic fillings. To make the restoration, we use a special camera to take an accurate picture of the tooth. With the picture displayed on a computer monitor, we are able to design the restoration. Then the machine takes over and automatically creates it. Finally, we bond the new restoration to the surface of the old tooth. Easier, faster crowns will make your day! We will discuss which option best suits your needs before any treatment begins.
There's no charge to learn more about one-visit crowns. Call today at (541) 485-6645 to schedule your complimentary consultation.
As we all grapple with the rapidly changing events surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic, we at Butler Family Dental have been faced with some difficult decisions.
Our desire to keep our amazing team at work and to help our awesome patients maintain their oral health is now outweighed by the potential consequences of exposing anyone unnecessarily to this incredibly contagious virus.
With that in mind, we will be closed, effective immediately, except for emergencies until at least March 31.
This afternoon (3/16/2020,) we received further guidance from the American Dental Association that recommended we see emergency patients only for the next 3 weeks.
We hope to do our part in flattening the curve and prevent our healthcare facilities and those who work so hard to take care of the sick from becoming overwhelmed.
