At Burba Dental Partners, our passion is beautiful, durable dentistry, from smile makeovers and complex restorative work to general dental care. A graduate of Georgetown University School of Dentistry, Dr. Stanley Burba opened Burba Dental Partners in 1968, where he now practices with his son, Dr. Randall Burba. Dr. Randy is an accredited cosmetic dentist. While many dentists perform cosmetic services, fewer than one in 500 is actually accredited. He devotes over 100 hours a year to continuing education to stay up-to-date in all phases of dentistry-TMJ techniques, implant procedures, cosmetic and restorative dentistry.
Dr. Randy Burba earned his undergraduate degrees in biology and chemistry from Providence College in Rhode Island. In 1995 he earned his doctorate from the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine. He began his dental career alongside his father, Dr. Stanley Burba, in Salem, MA. Dr. Burba is committed to providing his patients exceptional care. For sixteen years he has been practicing general dentistry in a family practice with an emphasis on cosmetic dentistry. His high work ethic means that he won't just rely on his years of experience.
Sleep apnea is a medical condition that is related to snoring. When you snore, your airway is restricted so that the soft tissues in the back of your throat vibrate. With sleep apnea, there is a complete blockage of your airway, causing you to stop breathing momentarily. The lack of oxygen can cause you to wake up briefly, and then you fall back asleep, usually without remembering that you woke up. This can happen many times throughout the night, leaving you feeling exhausted during day even though you believe you got a full night's sleep.
A partial denture is used when you're missing several teeth but still have healthy ones. Your prosthetic teeth are attached to a removable appliance. It is important to fill in your missing teeth in order to maintain proper tooth alignment. Otherwise your teeth will shift and could create further dental problems, including TMJ disorder or periodontal disease. There are some cases where instead of getting a partial denture you may be a candidate for implants or a dental bridge. We can evaluate your case and help you determine the best solution for your situation.
When replacing a missing tooth, you really have two good options: a dental implant and a dental bridge. An implant only affects the missing tooth. A dental bridge, however, uses three teeth-the missing tooth and the two adjacent teeth on either side. Crowns are placed on the adjacent teeth, with a false tooth suspended between them. Aside from the obvious appearance issue, there is a medical reason for replacing your missing teeth. The open space left after the tooth extraction can cause the remaining teeth to drift.
There's a new option in orthodontics. No longer do you need bulky, uncomfortable metal brackets filling your mouth in order to straighten your teeth. Now with Invisalign you can have a beautiful, straight smile in half the time of traditional braces. Without wires. Without brackets. Even without anyone even knowing you're wearing anything on your teeth. First, Dr. Burba will take a detailed impression of your teeth in order to facilitate in planning your tooth movements. Three dimensional images of the impressions are programmed into a computer that will manufacture a set of aligners designed specifically for your teeth.
