Regain Dental Function
Once physical damage occurs or disease progresses, restorative dentistry may be necessary. Because your teeth and gums cannot regenerate tissue or heal on their own, particularly in the presence of tartar, plaque, or infection, we rely on restorative services to correct your smile.
Restorative dentistry focuses on making your mouth whole and healthy again. Whether you suffer from tooth decay, accidental damage as a result of trauma, tooth loss, an infected tooth, or a combination of dental disorder, treatments will allow you to regain optimal function and good oral health.
Restorative Care To Address Tooth Decay or Infection
Dentists often suggest restorative care to patients as a means of treating existing tooth decay or infection. When plaque remains on teeth for an extended period, it eats away at your tooth’s tissue, resulting in a small hole called a cavity. Your dentist will suggest a tooth-colored filling to restore the missing tissue. For more advanced tooth decay or physical damage that we cannot treat with a simple filling, a dental crown provides structural support and protection to save your natural tooth. We also often complete root canal treatment – the removal of pulp from an infected tooth – with a beautiful dental crown.
Restoring Your Smile After Tooth Loss
A variety of factors lead to tooth loss. Some patients fail to develop a permanent tooth, while others deal with the loss of teeth as a result of decay or gum disease. At Oasis Family Dental, we provide beautiful dental prosthetics to replace missing teeth, so you can smile with pride and enjoy improved quality of life. For one missing tooth or several missing teeth in a row, your dentist may suggest a fixed dental bridge. Missing teeth scattered across your top or bottom arch may require a partial denture. Or, for patients missing one or both arches of teeth, full dentures offer complete teeth replacement. You may even replace your entire tooth – roots included – with dental implants.
Comprehensive Improvement for Complex Cases
We encourage all patients to visit us for restorative care, even if your needs are complex. Patients requiring treatment for decay or infection in addition to physical tooth repair or tooth replacement will enjoy a successful journey back toward excellent oral health through full mouth reconstruction. Your dentist will provide you with a customized care plan to restore the function and appearance of your smile.
