Restorative Dentistry

Your Corona Family Dentist Improves Oral Health with Restorative Treatment

Restorative DentistryThe health of your individual teeth, your gums, and your supportive structures make up your oral system. Each part is equally important. When one portion of the framework declines, it threatens your overall oral health. Restorative dentistry steps in to address isolated or widespread oral health concerns, providing repair to physical damage and treat disorders or disease. Taking steps to address problems protects your entire smile, while preventing long-term side effects of problems like tooth decay and gum disease.

Repairing Decay and Damage

We can address tooth decay, a progressive disease that leads to cavities, with dental fillings. Or, for severe decay or physically damaged teeth, dental crowns will provide support and protection by covering your tooth and restoring function. When a dental crown is too much yet a filling is inadequate, we may suggest a puzzle-piece type of restoration that replaces the missing tissue in your tooth. An inlay will restore missing tissue that lies between your tooth’s cusps, while an onlay replaces cusps and tissue along the sides of your teeth.

Rescuing An Infected Tooth

When bacteria enter your tooth through a small crack or when deep decay damages your dental pulp – the tissue that lines your roots – you need immediate care to save your tooth. Rather than allowing the tooth to die or for infection to spread to nearby healthy tissues, we will provide root canal therapy to remove the damaged tissue, clear the infection, and protect the remaining tooth by sealing it and covering it with a dental crown.

Removing A Difficult Tooth

You may suffer from problems that surpasses the capabilities of restorative treatments like fillings and root canals. For a tooth that is near complete destruction or that is posing too significant a threat to surrounding teeth, we may recommend tooth extraction. By removing the tooth, you safeguard your overall oral health, while providing a foundation for a beautiful tooth replacement.

Completing Your Smile

Your Corona dentist offers dental prosthetics to complete smiles that have suffered tooth loss. For one missing tooth or up to three teeth missing side-by-side, we can provide fixed dental bridges. You may consider partial dentures for more severe tooth loss or complete dentures to replace a full arch of missing teeth. Dental implants will address all configurations of tooth loss, replacing not only your visible tooth portion but your roots as well for wonderful stability.
