Are you wondering what restorative dentistry entails? Here are some of the top procedures and restorations we offer,
If you are dealing with a cracked, broken or infected tooth that requires a root canal then our dental team is most likely going to recommend placing a dental crown over the tooth. This tooth-shaped cap is custom made to fit over the tooth to cover and protect it, while also preserving what’s left of the natural tooth structure. Crowns are often made from porcelain because it most closely resembles real tooth enamel, so no one will be able to tell that you have a crown.
If you have gaps in your smile left over by tooth loss you will want to replace those missing teeth as soon as possible to prevent other complications associated with untreated tooth loss. Luckily, bridges offer an easy way to fill those gaps with natural-looking false teeth that are incredibly durable and built to last up to 10-15 years.
Bridges require neighboring teeth to hold the false teeth in place, so our Turnersville, NJ, restorative dentistry team will need to make sure that your natural teeth are healthy enough to support crowns and your new bridge.
Are you dealing with a toothache that just won’t quit? If so, you could be dealing with an infected dental pulp. Once a dental pulp becomes infected or inflamed, the only option is to remove it in order to save the tooth. Luckily, this is something that our dental team can easily do with root canals. A root canal is a simple procedure that goes inside the tooth to remove the pulp and to clean out any bacteria present in the pulp chamber or roots of the tooth. This is a tooth-saving procedure that will also get rid of that insufferable toothache you’re dealing with.
If you are an otherwise healthy individual who is looking for a lifelong restoration to replace your missing teeth, then you may want to consider dental implants. After all, they are truly the next best thing to maintaining your own natural teeth. Implants are made up of a small metal post that is inserted into the jawbone where it fuses together with the bone to permanently support one or more false teeth.
