At Oakdale Dental, our primary goal is to protect and care for the natural teeth. Even with excellent care, though, teeth and gums remain susceptible to cavities, cracking, infection, and other types of damage. Restorative dentistry focuses on maintaining oral and overall health when one or more teeth or the surrounding tissues are damaged.
The goal of restorative dentistry is to restore both the aesthetics and function of the tooth. There are many possible treatment options depending on your needs. The first step is to carefully evaluate the affected tooth or teeth. We will then work with you to develop a treatment plan that meets your needs, goals, and budget. Restorative dentistry protects health and can reduce the risks of needing further dental procedures in the future.
Restorative Dentistry Procedures
Restorative dentistry procedures may include, but are not limited to:
Fillings: Small areas of tooth decay or damage can be removed, and the area filled in with a tooth colored resin that hardens under a specialized laser.
Crowns: If the tooth is too far gone for a simple filling, a crown can restore both appearance and functionality.
Root Canals: A root canal is performed when infection or trauma has damaged the pulp of the tooth. The canal is thorough cleaned and smoothed, and then filled with a biocompatible sealing material. The tooth is then protected with a crown.
Veneers: Made of dental porcelain or resin, dental veneers can transform the aesthetics of teeth that are healthy but unsightly. Veneers can correct the size, shape, and color of the teeth, and even cover small gaps or slight crookedness.
Dentures: If you have lost all or some of your teeth, dentures can replace them. Both partial and full dentures are available, and they may be removable or fixed.
Dental Implants: Dental implants have become the gold standard for replacing missing teeth. A biocompatible titanium implant is placed in the jawbone, providing a strong and stable base for a crown. One dental implant can support one crown, while just two implants per arch can stabilize dentures, and four to six implants per arch can support a full, fixed set of replacement teeth.
Full Mouth Restoration: Full mouth restoration refers to any combination of procedures to restore teeth that are heavily worn, decayed, or damaged. We will carefully evaluate your teeth and oral tissues, along with your goals and desires, to develop a treatment plan that restores functionality as well as aesthetics and truly transforms your smile.
