At Grin Dental, we do our very best to help patients prevent oral health issues and keep their whole, healthy smiles for life.

Contact our team right away if you experience toothache or dental damage. We’re happy to help whenever patients need us most.
Crowns & Bridges
Dental crowns and fixed bridges are two of the most frequently used and effective restorative dentistry treatments available. They offer patients the ability to maintain even severely damaged teeth, and allow us to renew the form and function of a tooth and avoid extraction. Dental crowns and bridges are crafted from a variety of materials, and the treatment process is typically completed in just two, short visits.
Tooth-colored, composite resin Fillings are used to repair minor decay, chips, cracks, and even cosmetic flaws. They offer superior cosmetic results compared with traditional amalgam filling materials, and best of all, tooth-colored fillings have a number of oral health advantages as well. That’s why we recommend composite resin fillings for all of our Grin Dental patients.
Dentures & Partials
Dentures and partials are available for patients who experience significant tooth loss. Partials are crafted from a gum colored base that fits between remaining teeth along an arch. This base supports replacement teeth that fill any number of gaps. Partials are held in place using metallic clasps. Full dentures are similarly constructed using a gum colored base to support a full row of teeth. However, the prosthetic is shaped to fit snuggly against the gum line creating natural suction that holds the denture in place. We also offer dental implant supported options for those patients looking for advanced tooth replacement with improved stability.
Though they have a reputation for being painful, root canals actually significantly relieve the toothache pain and sensitivity that precedes them. Root canal therapy is necessary when decay or damage reaches the innermost pulp layer of the tooth where the nerve is housed. The result is irritation that directly affects the nerve causing severe pain. The procedure is relatively straightforward. We drill a small access hole into the top of the tooth. Then, we extract the pulp and nerve tissue. Finally, we reseal the tooth, and when necessary, place a dental crown over the tooth in order to strengthen and protected the treated dental structure.
Our Garland, TX dental team makes every effort to help patients maintain their naturally healthy smiles for a lifetime, but in certain situations, tooth extraction may be the best solution to ensure patients maintain their healthiest smiles. Dr. Nisha John has experience and training to perform safe, comfortable tooth removal from the comfort of our state-of-the-art dental office. If we determine extraction is the best solution for patients’ smiles, we’ll also take the time to outline tooth replacement options if necessary. Some of the most common reasons we recommend extraction include:
- When decay or trauma is too severe to repair using other restorative treatments
- In preparation for orthodontic treatment where crowding is an issue
- Prior to creating and placing partial or full dentures
- To prevent potential oral health issues such as impaction (inability of the tooth to erupt from the gum line) or crowding
- To prevent oral health issues associated with the third molars, wisdom teeth, that are the last to erupt within the gum line
Dental implants offer patients an advanced tooth replacement option that is more natural, stable, and beneficial for remaining healthy dental structures than traditional options. The process is completed in two phases and can take a year or more to complete depending on a variety of external factors. The first phase of treatment is the surgical placement of dental implants below the gum line. A small incision is made in the gums, and an implant post is inserted. We place a protective cap over the implant, and after three to six months, the post fuses with the gums and supportive alveolar bone tissue to mimic the lost root structure of teeth. Once this process is complete, patients return to our office where we’ll attach one or more replacement teeth to the implant posts completely restoring damaged smiles.
