Restorative Dental Care in Richmond Hill: What is it?
Restorative dental care encompasses any procedure that has the goal to restore the normal appearance and function of your smile.
By correcting structural issues such as missing or damaged teeth, our dentists are able to help restore your smile and oral health.
Depending on what your issue is, our dentists at Arenson Dental & Associates can provide you with the best possible restorative treatment plan options for you.
Crowns are porcelain caps that are placed on top of teeth to restore their appearance and function. Dentists can use crowns to cover dental implants, connect bridges, or keep a cracked tooth from becoming worse. They may also help restore a stained or discoloured tooth to its natural appearance.
Bridges are natural-looking tooth replacements that are bonded to existing teeth or dental implants to replace a section of missing teeth. Since they are custom-made, bridges are barely noticeable and could restore the natural contour of teeth and the bite between upper and lower teeth.
At Arenson Dental & Associates, we are able to use composite (tooth-coloured) fillings to repair cavities or a damaged tooth, such as a crack. These fillings can withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing and could be used on either front or back teeth.
Full & Partial Dentures
Dentures are artificial teeth that could be used to replace a single missing tooth, several teeth in a row (partial dentures), or a complete jaw of missing teeth (full dentures). They let patients with missing teeth keep their facial structure, and allow them to eat and talk normally.
Inlays & Onlays
Inlays and Onlays are tooth-coloured porcelain fillings used to fill cavities that are too damaged for standard dental fillings. They are custom-made in a dental laboratory, then permanently cemented to the tooth as a single piece.
When performing a root canal, your dentist removes diseased tissues, nerves, and blood vessels from the interior of a tooth. By removing the decay and bacteria, your dentist can help stop the infection from spreading and prevent the need for an extraction.
Botox® is a purified protein that can be used in dentistry. When injected into the facial muscles, it releases neurotoxins and keeps the muscles from contracting, helping them relax. Using Botox, our dentists can help treat jaw pain and headaches as well as provide relief from grinding and clenching.
TMJ Disorder Treatment
The temporomandibular joint (or TMJ) is a hinge that connects your jaw to the temporal bones of your skull. The disorder of this joint can cause a variety of problems with your jaw and facial muscles, including painful symptoms. Our dentists can test for, diagnose and provide a treatment plan for TMJ Disorder.
