Benefits of Choosing Restorative Dentistry Solutions
There are many great reasons why you should consider restorative dental procedures to regain the appearance and function of your teeth. With restorative dentistry, you can:
Our Restorative Services
At Soundview Family Dental, our extensive range of services allow us to customize your restorative treatment plan. Not everyone wants dentures, and not every patient will find that bridges work for their situation. During your consultation, we will look at many factors, including the area where teeth are missing, the condition of remaining teeth, and other complications that may limit your options or require additional treatments. We will make sure that you have all the information and advice you need to make the best decision for your smile goals, and for your budget.
Bridges will ‘bridge’ the gap in your smile. They are designed to replace one or two missing teeth in the same area of the mouth. A bridge will use adjacent healthy teeth as support. This is a fixed dental device that acts like your natural teeth, using porcelain crowns as the replacement teeth.
When a tooth isn’t too far gone but has suffered some damage, a crown will be the best solution to restore it to a healthier, more functional state. A crown will look like your natural tooth, using a tooth-colored crown, often made of porcelain. It fits right over your natural tooth and can solve cracks, chips, or even broken teeth.
Considered one of the best, and most permanent, replacement for missing teeth, dental implants provide an excellent platform for restorations. Dental implants can be used to replace one tooth, several, or a full arch. With dental implants, your dentist will install a titanium screw into the jawbone that acts as a support for special dental devices, including implant supported bridges and dentures. Using dental implants, patients get a natural looking smile restoration, which works just like their real teeth.
As the most affordable option for tooth replacement, dentures have been used for centuries. These work great for those who have multiple missing teeth at different areas in the arch, or for those that need to replace all their teeth. Dentures, however, do have some downsides, including less comfort for the wearer, and they often contribute to bone loss.
Inlays and Onlays
When your tooth hasn’t had extensive breakage, but it suffers from significant cracks or chips, inlays and onlays are an excellent solution. These will ‘hide’ the damage of the tooth while preventing further damage. Onlays are sometimes referred to as partial crowns.
Full Mouth Restoration
For those that are missing all their teeth and looking for the best solution to regain a full smile, our Full Mouth Restoration treatment is an excellent option. Instead of using dentures to replace your teeth, we will install dental implants to support a special denture. Full mouth restorations can include extractions of teeth that aren’t savable, and implants can be installed the same day.
Missing Teeth Can Contribute to Alignment Problems
Missing just a single tooth can throw off the alignment of your other teeth. While this may not seem significant right now, the alignment of your teeth is crucial to your oral health. When teeth overlap, the probability of tooth decay increases dramatically. Teeth will be harder to clean, and cavities can form. Alignment issues will require more extensive treatment to correct and may require orthodontics.
The sooner you replace missing teeth, the better. You can avoid many of the pitfalls of alignment problems, or teeth shifting out of place, with restorations. For those that have damaged teeth, corrective procedures like crowns can save your tooth before it dies. Yes, teeth can die, and if they do, they may need to be extracted.
