Composite fillings are a solution for problems such as tooth decay or aesthetic concerns. A composite filling is a tooth-colored plastic and glass mixture used to restore teeth. This procedure is also utilized for cosmetic improvements of the smile by fixing any discoloration or reshaping any teeth.
Porcelain Crowns and Veneers
Getting porcelain crowns or veneers is the best way to have a very natural-looking smile. They are used when simply filling in a tooth is not an option. We also use them to strengthen cracked teeth or teeth that have already had multiple fillings. Porcelain crowns are attached right to your teeth so that they can function, even when you bite something really hard!
Invisalign® is a modern alternative to straighten your teeth without wires or brackets. The Invisalign treatment involves a series of clear, removable aligners that are customized specifically for you. Dr. Pausma who is a certified Invisalign provider will provide you with a unique treatment plan to help address both teeth straightening and bite issues.
Gum disease affects half of the adult population as estimated by the CDC. At 608 Family Dental in Sun Prairie, we always promote preventative dentistry. However, sometimes periodontal therapy, or sometimes called "Deep Cleanings" becomes necessary. Our expert hygienists will clean below the gumlines to remove tarter and calculus and return patients to stable health. We then teach patients and give them the tools to properly care for themselves. Often these patients require more frequent routine visits.
We strive to save all-natural teeth, however, we sometimes must remove troublesome teeth that can no longer support our best oral health. In these cases, our skilled doctors will discuss all options, including how best to replace a tooth. Then, painlessly remove the tooth under local anesthetic.
Same-day dental care is available in Sun Prairie! Call us now to be sure to get in (608) 837-5527. If you have broken a tooth or fear you may have a dental infection, call us right away for same-day treatment.
If it has been a while since you have been to the dentist do not worry. We offer honest compassionate care, not lectures!
Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy is a very effective way to save an infected or damaged tooth from being lost. If you have tooth pain in the Sun Prairie or Dane County area please call now to schedule an appointment. Waiting may cause further damage and the need for more extensive dental work.
Dental Implants are the only solution for true tooth replacement. Implants are titanium fixtures set into the jaw bone to act as a root replacement for single or multiple missing teeth. -> Dr. Pausma has many years of experience in the surgical placement of dental implants. He does so with the end in mind by first designing the restoration, then placing the implant in the correct position by using digital programs, and three-dimensional dental imaging.
Dental Implants can be used to replace single teeth with porcelain crowns, as well as multiple teeth. When replacing a full arch of teeth typically 4 to 6 implants are placed to support a fixed full-arch bridge. Implants can also be used to retain a removable denture that can "snap" in and out. Patients who take advantage of these services experience greater confidence in their smiles, and their ability to eat healthy foods.
Dental Sleep Medicine
The American Academy of Sleep Medicine states that dentistry can provide first-line treatment for obstructive sleep apnea. Our doctors and hygienists are trained to look for signs and symptoms in a patient's mouth that can show sleep-disordered breathing. Many patients have chosen an oral sleep appliance as their treatment of choice as an alternative to a CPAP machine, and other patients have come to us for treatment after having tried and failed CPAP or other forms of positive airway pressure. --> Dr. Pausma is enrolled in the 2021 class to become board certified by the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine.
If you are missing teeth, dentures can provide a positive solution to improving your oral health. We provide dentures that are designed to fit your mouth for proper function and unique comfort. Following your appointment, we will provide you with information on at-home care for your dentures. We strongly recommend scheduling follow-up appointments for periodic denture cleanings.

When your teeth are missing, it greatly affects your smile. At the same time, the missing tooth has the potential to negatively affect your oral hygiene because of unprotected gum exposure. Dental bridges are one of many options aimed at improving the appearance and function of your teeth by replacing the missing tooth or teeth. During your exam, we will discuss whether or not dental bridges are right for you.
