Don’t Ignore the Problems That Require Restorative Dentistry
While the most comprehensive and in-depth diagnosis for any patient requires a consultation, should one or more of the following conditions apply to you, schedule an appointment at our office quickly. Each minor dental issue can become a major oral care concern!
Problem issues include:
- Broken or Chipped Teeth: When the enamel—the hard, outer layer—of a tooth is damaged, this can lead to sensitivity, discomfort, or irritation of not only the tooth itself but the gums and jaw.
- Tooth Decay: Most often appearing in the form of cavities, tooth decay is one of the most common oral health care issues in the world. Tooth decay will create a hole in your tooth, which can go unnoticed at first. However, if left untreated, this can create complications from toothaches to infections.
- Missing Tooth or Teeth: There is a common misconception that a missing tooth (or teeth) is only problematic to appearances. This is not true! A missing tooth can raise health concerns by increasing the risk of weakening a jaw or allowing bacteria to build up, increasing the chance for infection.
Don’t ignore these red flags and put your dental care in danger! Discover what a restorative dentist can do for you by reading our services below!
Our Restoration Dentistry Services
We offer a wide range of restorative services, each one a solution to different oral care concerns. We can select the restoration that will work for your problem—or even use the services in combination. This ensures that each of our patients have a personalized treatment plan that restores your smile to the fullest!
Our restorative dentistry services include:
If you are missing one or more teeth, this treatment may be the solution you are looking for. A post will be gently but firmly attached to your jawbone in place of your missing tooth. On top of this post, we’ll place a dental crown for full restoration.
With the post simulating a tooth’s roots and the crown functioning as a tooth, a dental implant will essentially replace your full natural tooth!
Dental Crowns & Bridges
With how hardworking teeth are—from chewing our food to flashing a smile—it is easy to forget they can be damaged by more than accidents or mishaps. Sugary drinks, gum disease, and age can all impact a tooth’s health.
If you have a damaged tooth, a crown could be the dental decision to improve your oral health! Made from a variety of materials from metal to porcelain, a crown is a protective covering placed over a damaged tooth to help preserve your smile and health.
However, if your damaged teeth are giving you too much discomfort or you are missing teeth, we may suggest a dental bridge instead. A dental bridge uses pontics (false teeth) to fill the gaps between your natural teeth, which are crafted to support your jaw and designed to match your smile.
Implant Dentures & Root Canals
Concerning the curative and corrective nature of restorative dentistry, we offer everything from tooth infection control to full tooth replacement. At your consultation, we can help you find the restoration you need!
A root canal can rid your tooth of pain and infection while saving the natural structure. Being committed to The Gentle Art of Dentistry, we can appreciate that many patients prefer to restore their natural teeth. The traditional method to preserve and restore natural teeth is the root canal, which can save a tooth from being removed even if it has been badly damaged or even infected!
Meanwhile, if your teeth are too far gone to be saved, we can replace your full smile using implant-supported dentures. Titanium posts are securely and comfortably connected to your jawbone; on top of those we’ll secure the replacement teeth, which we specifically design for every patient. So you can not only feel your finest, but look it as well!
