Reconstructive Dentistry Omaha, NE
There is nothing more beautiful than a natural healthy smile, however, we know that as we age, our teeth age along with us, providing more opportunities for decay, staining, or tooth loss. We also realize that accidents can happen, such as a tooth getting knocked out or chipped. When any of these dental issues occur, the dental team at Blue Sky Dental is passionate about helping Omaha families with affordable and stress-free reconstructive dentistry procedures. Our reconstructive dentistry practice will repair a broken smile or improve upon your existing smile with top-of-the-line dental implants, complete or partial dentures, tooth extraction, zirconia dental bridges, and other precision-fit teeth replacement options.
Zirconia and Porcelain Bridges Schedule an Appointment
A bridge is a type of permanent dental prosthesis, built to replace one or more missing teeth. Dental bridges are held in place in the mouth by slipping them over, and cementing them to, specially prepared teeth, adjacent to the area missing the tooth or teeth. A bridge is different from a crown, as it is effectively 3 crowns as 1, with the replacement tooth in the center. Learn more
Partial Dentures Schedule an Appointment
Partial removable dentures (partials) are an option for the partially edentulous, while complete removable dentures are an option for the completely edentulous patient. Partial removable dentures are held in place in the mouth by wire clasps and/or other means of attachment to the remaining natural teeth. Partial dentures can be a temporary means of treating patients who are expecting to lose the remaining teeth. Learn more
Complete Dentures Schedule an Appointment
Removable dentures (sometimes referred to as false teeth or plates) are a common treatment alternative for missing teeth (edentulism). Removable dentures are versatile in their ability to replace any number of missing teeth and to fill out the contours of the face and lips, which shrink inward when multiple teeth are lost.

Retained Dentures and Implants Schedule an Appointment
Dentures attached to mini dental implants are a viable alternative to traditional dentures. Some patients have difficulty with removable dentures for a number of reasons. They may find that their dentures are uncomfortable or painful, or they may cause difficulties with speech. Mini implants offer a feasible option for patients to secure their dentures, alleviating movement which often leads to these issues.
Tooth Implants/Tooth Replacement Schedule an Appointment
Dental implants may be thought of as replacement tooth roots. Although they are available in many shapes and sizes, depending on the specific problem to be solved, by far the most common type in use today is the “root-form” implant. Dental implants are among the most significant advancements in the history of dentistry for their versatility at replacing one tooth, several teeth—even all of the teeth.
Tooth Extractions Schedule an Appointment
Tooth extractions, both simple and surgical, are prescribed if teeth are too extensively damaged from decay or trauma to be fixable, or if they are infected and the patient is not a candidate for root canal treatment (endodontics). Tooth extractions are also frequently prescribed when the teeth in one or both jaws are severely crowded, and straightening the teeth would require unnecessarily complex orthodontics with a compromised treatment outcome.

Periodontal Cleanings Schedule an Appointment
Gum disease is caused by plaque remaining around the gumlines of the teeth. The bacteria in plaque produces acids and other toxins that can destroy bone and gum tissue over a period of time. When you eat foods like simple carbohydrates such as sugar, it feeds certain bacteria that promote oral disease such as tooth decay, and periodontal disease. Removing the buildup of plaque, and calculus is the focus during a periodontal cleaning. Learn more
Invisalign Schedule an Appointment
Invisalign takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements your dentist or orthodontist plans out for you. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You just pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete. Learn more
