If you have missing or misaligned teeth, the long-term consequences can mean loss of additional teeth, increased susceptibility to gum disease and loss of bone structure. Dental bridges at our Albuquerque office near Santa Fe might be the right option for you. Dental bridges can effectively close the gap between missing teeth, and create a durable, realistic-looking artificial tooth.
There are several types of dental bridges; however, our Santa Fe and Albuquerque patients most often benefit from a traditional bridge consisting of an artificial tooth held together by two crowns The crowns are secured to neighboring teeth to hold the bridge in place. In order to accommodate the crowns, a small amount of tooth structure is removed from the teeth surrounding the gap. The crowns are custom-made to fit the new shape of your teeth, and the bridge is securely bonded into place. The final result is a long- lasting and strong restoration that looks completely natural.

Our office offers a range of neuromuscular dentistry services for individuals in Albuquerque and throughout Bernalillo County to treat TMJ and a host of other disorders.
If you suffer from headaches, neck and shoulder pain, ringing in the ear or clicking or popping of the jaw, you may benefit from neuromuscular dentistry at our Albuquerque office in Bernalillo County.
Unlike traditional dentistry, neuromuscular dentistry focuses on the muscle activity responsible for movement of the jaw. The philosophy of neuromuscular dentistry is based on the idea that the muscles in the jaw must be completely relaxed for efficient functioning of the teeth and joints. When this does not occur, the patient may suffer from such symptoms as headaches, loose teeth, and pain in the eyes and ears. Neuromuscular dentistry has helped countless patients in Albuquerque and throughout Bernalillo County suffering from TMJ disorder.
Using the most sophisticated and advanced equipment available in neuromuscular dentistry, Dr. Wall will first find the most ideal position of your jaw. The device we use is called a Myomonitor™. The Myomonitor™ relaxes the jaw muscles utilizing low frequency electrical impulses. This technique also increases blood flow and helps to remove toxins.
When Dr. Wall has established the ideal jaw position, an orthotic can then be made which will help the jaw return to this position. Dr. Wall will determine how frequently the orthotic should be worn or whether additional orthodontic treatment is needed.

Cavities no longer need to be filled with unattractive amalgam fillings. Modern restorative dentistry provides Albuquerque residents with a much more aesthetically pleasing solution. Tooth-colored fillings made of durable resin can be bonded to your teeth for a durable, and natural-looking effect. Resin restorations are virtually undetectable and easy to apply.
Resin restorations offer several advantages over traditional metal fillings. Because only the decayed portion of the tooth is affected during the procedure, and natural tooth structure is preserved. The result is a stronger, more natural looking restoration. Resin fillings also provide a better seal than metal fillings, helping to avoid further damage to the tooth.
