Damaged or decayed teeth can result in reduced oral health, impaired functionality, and constant discomfort. And if left untreated, dental complications can even affect whole body health. In studies conducted by the Harvard Medical School, conditions such as heart disease have been linked to poor oral health. Through restorative dentistry, our Restore Dental team can reverse the effects of aging and decay and restore strength to the teeth.
If the health of your teeth is severely compromised and you are feeling hopeless, please allow us to help. As a family dentistry practice, we take great care to provide for and maintain our patients` health, and we strive to develop long-term relationships. We would be honored to work with you to devise a comprehensive solution to your dental health complications. To schedule a consultation regarding restorative dentistry treatmentContact Us Now
Teeth that are severely damaged or decayed can impair your ability to chew and speak properly, and if left untreated, can affect the health of the whole mouth. In such cases, extraction is often necessary, though this creates an additional set of concerns as the edentulous site must then be treated to prevent surrounding teeth from shifting out of position. With dental crowns, damaged or decayed teeth can be encapsulated, preventing the need for extraction while restoring the health, strength, and appearance of the affected tooth and safeguarding against additional decay.
Gaps that do exist between teeth can be treated with dental bridges. A dental bridge provides an alternative to dental implants, which require surgical placement and a much longer healing time. A dental bridge consists of an artificial tooth that is secured on either side by a dental crown. These crowns anchor the prosthetic tooth, allowing it to bridge gaps between teeth. This simple, effective solution can help to ensure that no dental complications arise as a result of vacant gaps.See Patients Results
Though bridges can be used to treat gaps, the most stable and durable solution to a missing tooth is a dental implant. Dental implants are titanium posts that serve as artificial tooth roots, atop which dental prosthetics such as crowns, bridges, and dentures can be affixed. Because dental implants are made from titanium, they are incredibly strong, and the inert nature of the metal allows them to fuse to the jaw bone over time, creating a stable foundation.
To place a dental implant, the oral surgeon screws the titanium post into the jaw bone. Over time, the bone will fuse around the implant through a process known as osseointegration. In effect, the dental implant becomes part of the mouth's natural anatomy. During the healing process, a temporary restoration will be placed atop the implant. Once healing is complete, however, the temporary prosthetic will be removed, and a permanent restoration will be secured to the implant abutment. While the implant serves as an artificial root, the restoration will serve as an artificial tooth.See Patients Results
Individuals who are missing most or all of their teeth can restore the appearance and function of their smiles with dentures. At our Corsicana dental practice, our restorative dentistry options include both full and partial dentures, as well as implant-supported dentures. Dentures are artificial teeth that can be placed on the upper or lower jaw, or both.
While traditional dentures are secured temporarily with dental adhesive, and must be removed each night for cleaning, many of our patients opt for implant-secured dentures, as they are far more stable and reliable. By anchoring the dentures in place with dental implants (or crowns in the case of partial dentures or dental bridges), the dentures do not have to be removed, nor can they inadvertently shift out of place. The benefits of dentures are many, and they can have a tremendous impact on your quality of life.See Patients Results
Not all restorative dentistry treatments offered at our Carrollton practice are designed to address severe dental complications such as missing teeth and extensive decay. For individuals suffering slight decay to the upper cusps of their teeth, dental inlays and onlays can be used to repair their appearance and strength. Similar to fillings, inlays and onlays are placed directly on the teeth to fill in gaps or erosion resulting from decay. Damage that is limited to the interior of the cusp can be treated with an inlay; damage that extends over top of the cusp calls for the placement of an onlay.
After an impression has been made of the affected tooth, the mold is sent to a laboratory where the custom restoration is fabricated. Once the inlay or onlay is complete, it is bonded into place. We utilize tooth-colored inlays and onlays, as they provide numerous benefits.See Patients Results
We perform frenectomy surgery and soft tissue treatment using lasers. In children, frenectomy can be performed on the tongue or lips; if the connective tissue known as the frenulum is too constrictive, it can impair freedom of movement and cause discomfort. With our laser, we can modify the frenulum to aid in movement. Soft tissues can also be ablated with laser energy. This can help correct aesthetic concerns, such as "gummy smiles," or be used to treat other conditions.See Patients Results
