An extraction is a removal of a tooth from the socket of the bone. Sometimes a tooth needs to be extracted due to the following reasons:
- Wisdom teeth that are becoming painful or causing problems with your other teeth
- Preparation for orthodontic treatment
- A tooth that has fractured into the root or is infected
- Advanced periodontal disease
- Severe decay
The choice to extract a tooth is usually last resort treatment. However, if it is necessary, Dr. Curtis uses great care and has many years of experience to remove any teeth if necessary. Extraction procedures are done in our Cambridge, MN office, but we provide services for many cities within Minnesota including Duluth and Hinkley. When a tooth is extracted you may need a replacement option. Dental implants and Dentures are two great options to restore your ability to eat and to restore your smile.
A denture is a removable dental appliance used for replacing missing teeth. They can be complete for people who are missing all of their teeth, or they can be partial for people who are missing just some of their teeth
Dentures have the following benefits:
- Replace complete loss of all teeth in an arch.
- Replace partial loss of teeth in an arch.
- Enhance smile and facial tissues.
- Improve chewing, speech and digestion.
What is restorative care?
To put it simply, restorative dentistry involves any dental process which focuses on repairing or restoring damaged oral structures. This can include procedures such as fillings, bridges, and implants among many other services
Crown or Bridge
Crowns or Bridges are for people who have a large cavity or large cavities that threaten the health of the rest of the mouth. Crowns encircle the whole tooth and can be made from composite materials, gold or porcelain. Bridges do a similar job as the crown but will work to span three or more teeth at one time.
Lab Crowns or Bridges
We work with a local dental lab that has a shorter turn around time on lab crowns. All the hard work is completed undersedation if needed and then within 1-3 weeks the final lab crowns will be placed for a more permanent beautiful smile. In the mean time a temporary crown will be placed in the area where work was completed under sedation.
Dental Implants: Dental implants are surgically-placed screws that act as the anchor for a prosthesis. Basically, a dental implant requires rebuilding the root of a tooth.
We offer dental implants if you’re looking for a permanent solution for missing teeth. And if you’re sick of loose dentures, dental implants can offer the potential for a stronger and more durable tooth replacement option. We’ll make sure you understand the procedure and all of your options in restorative dentistry. At Minnesota Implant and Sedation Dental, get the smile you’ve been dreaming of without the anxiety. Our dental office is located in Cambridge, MN, and we provide full and partial dental implants for a variety of locations including Isanti, Braham, North Branch, Rush City, and Princeton, MN.

As explained earlier, fillings are materials that fill the space in your tooth previously occupied by damage or decay. They can be made from a variety of materials.
Lumineers and veneers are thin crowns that are cemented over your existing teeth to give you the beautifully radiant smile you’ve always wanted. Some of the benefits of veneer treatment:
- Straightening minor misalignment of front teeth
- Covering unwanted stain that can not be removed with cleaning the teeth
- Peg (or genetically small) front teeth
- Desire to create a “Hollywood” smile
In most cases, there is minimal drilling of sensitive tooth structure, and most importantly — no pain! Contact Minnesota Implant and Sedation Dental, located in Cambridge, MN, and we would be glad to schedule an appointment with you to make sure you understand all of your options.
Oral appliances for treating sleep apnea
If you have been diagnosed with Obstructive Sleep Apnea by a medical doctor, then you may be a candidate for oral appliance treatment. Many people who have been diagnosed with sleep apnea have tried Cpap treatment and couldn’t tolerate it. Unfortunately, many don’t know that there is another way. We will work with your physician and sleep doctor to help determine if oral appliance therapy is right for you.
A dental appliance used to treat sleep apnea gently holds your lower jaw forward which in turn holds your tongue and the other tissues of your mouth forward. Wearing it as you sleep helps to keep your airway open. There are multiple kinds of dental devices that Dr. Curtis will discuss and he can recommend the right appliance for you. There may be people who have severe sleep apnea and may benefit from use of the CPAP in conjunction with an oral appliance.
