Throughout your life, you may be afflicted with one or more oral health complications. Fortunately, restorative dentistry can help you manage and deal with these issues. Restorative dental procedures focus on resolving various oral health issues and restoring the functionality and aesthetics of your smile.
Here in Waterford, WI, our dentists, Dr. Michael Casey and Dr. Mary Lenz, offer the following restorative dentistry treatments to help preserve your oral health:
Dental crowns are used to restore severely decayed or damaged teeth. They are tooth-shaped caps that cover the surface of your tooth that is visible along the gum line. A crown can reinstate your tooth’s strength, size, shape, and appearance. Additionally, dental crowns can be used to cover a dental implant or support a bridge in place.
This treatment is considered to be the most common kind of dental restoration procedure. Fillings are utilized to repair tooth decay or cavities. It involves the removal of the decay, which will be done under local anesthesia. Afterward, the treated area is cleaned and sealed with filling to help fortify the tooth and prevent further damage.
Root Canal Procedure
If the pulp of your tooth is badly infected, your dentist in Waterford, WI, will recommend root canal therapy to restore it to a healthy state. The treatment process involves the extraction of the pulp and nerve of your tooth, and the cleaning and sealing of the extraction site.
A dental implant procedure is a permanent and one of the most popular tooth replacement solutions for individuals who have lost one or multiple teeth. Dental implants function as replacement tooth roots that are surgically installed into your jawbone. They are then capped off with a realistic-looking dental crown.
Bridges are artificial teeth that “bridge” the gap caused by the loss of one or multiple teeth. A bridge consists of a crown on each side, serving as an anchor, along with a replacement tooth in the middle, which connects the crowns and fills the gap. It could be permanently fastened into place or detachable.
