What is Restorative Dental Care?
Any procedure aimed at restoring the normal function and appearance of your smile is considered restorative dental care.
Our dentists can help you restore your smile – and your oral health – by repairing structural issues like damaged or missing teeth.
The dentists at Elliott Dental Studio will determine the best restorative treatment option for you based on your problem.
To repair a cavity or tooth damage, such as a crack, we use composite (tooth-colored) fillings at Elliott Dental Studio. These fillings should withstand moderate pressure from chewing stress and are suitable for both front and back teeth.
A root canal is a dental procedure in which diseased blood vessels, nerves, and tissues are removed from the interior of a tooth by your dentist. Your dentist can help stop the spread of infection and avoid the need for an extraction by removing the decay and bacteria.
Crowns are porcelain caps that are affixed to the tops of teeth to restore function and appearance. Crowns are used to hold bridges in place, cover dental implants, and keep a cracked tooth from getting worse. They can also help to restore the natural appearance of a discoloured or stained tooth.
Bridges are tooth replacements that should look natural and are bonded to existing teeth or dental implants to replace a missing tooth section. Bridges are virtually undetectable because they are custom-made and can restore the natural contour of teeth as well as the bite between the upper and lower teeth.
Inlays & Onlays
When the damage to a tooth is too extensive for a standard dental filling, inlays and onlays are tooth-coloured porcelain fillings that are used to repair the cavity. They are made to order in a dental laboratory and permanently cemented to the tooth in one piece.
Full & Partial Dentures
Dentures are artificial teeth that are used to replace one or more missing teeth in a row (partial dentures), or an entire jaw of missing teeth (full dentures). They enable patients who are missing teeth to keep their facial structure and speak and eat normally.
Periodontal (Gum) Therapy
Gum disease is an infection that affects the gums, gingiva, alveolar bone, cementum, and periodontal ligament in the mouth. Preventive therapy will be recommended if the disease is detected early on. Otherwise, treatment options will be determined by the disease's type and severity.
TMJ Disorder Treatment
The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is a hinge that connects your jaw to your skull's temporal bones. This joint disorder can lead to a variety of problems with your jaw and facial muscles, including painful symptoms. TMJ Disorder can be tested for, diagnosed, and treated by our dentists.
