What Is Restorative Dentistry?
Restorative dentistry is any dental treatment that focuses on repairing and restoring damaged oral structures. Our dental restorations are designed to look, feel, and function like your natural teeth, giving you a smile that’ll last for years. Dr. Panneton uses restorative treatments to fix the following oral issues:
- Chipped, cracked, or fractured teeth
- Decayed, damaged, or worn-down teeth
- Infected or abscessed teeth
- Missing teeth
Our Restorative Dentistry Services
If you have one or more missing teeth, a dental bridge can rebuild your smile. This fixed restoration bridges the gap between surrounding natural teeth, replacing what’s missing with artificial teeth. Our dentists offer personalized dental bridges tailored to your unique needs. During your consultation, we’ll evaluate your smile and recommend a restoration that’s right for you.
Dental bridges are built to last with proper oral care. While durable, bridges may eventually require replacement or recementing due to everyday wear. With custom craftsmanship and advanced materials, our bridges look and function like natural teeth.
Dental implants are the premier solution for replacing missing teeth. We’ll surgically insert artificial tooth roots, typically made from biocompatible titanium, into your jawbone. This allows the bone to fuse securely with the implant in a process called osseointegration. The result is a strong, durable anchor for your new artificial tooth or teeth.
Dental implants restore your ability to smile, speak, and eat with confidence. They look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth. With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime, making them an investment in your health and self-confidence.
Root Canal Therapy
If the inner pulp of your tooth becomes infected or inflamed, root canal treatment can restore health and function. Our skilled dentist uses precision instruments to gently remove decayed tissue from the tooth root and clear out bacteria. After careful cleaning and shaping, the inside of the tooth is filled and sealed with biocompatible materials to prevent reinfection.
Unlike tooth extraction, root canal therapy allows you to maintain your natural tooth structure. Dr. Panneton performs these procedures with a gentle approach using the latest equipment. With the source of infection eliminated, we can restore your tooth using a natural-looking crown or filling.
Dentures offer an affordable, non-invasive solution for replacing multiple missing teeth or a full arch. We work closely with you to design premium dentures tailored to your smile. Using advanced techniques and quality materials, your custom dentures are carefully crafted to look and feel natural. The fabrication process is quick and convenient, without the need for surgery or long recovery times.
Your new dentures are sculpted to fit comfortably while allowing you to eat, speak, and smile with confidence. Whether you need a partial or full set, we handle each step of creating and fitting your dentures with expert care and precision.
Frequently Asked Questions
The duration of your dental restoration treatment depends on multiple factors, such as your needs and the treatment you choose. For example, root canal therapy can be done in just one appointment, while a dental implant will require multiple appointments. For your convenience, your dentist will explain the breakdown of your customized treatment plan, including the time it’ll take to complete.
Restorative treatments like dental implants, crowns, and bridges are generally not painful procedures. Your dentist will use local anesthesia to numb any discomfort during the procedure. Some may also provide dental sedation to ensure your comfort. While some temporary sensitivity can occur during recovery, the procedures themselves are minimally invasive when performed by an experienced dentist using precise, patient-focused care.
Most insurance companies should cover a portion of your restorative procedure expenses. The cost of your procedure will depend on your individual needs and the details of your customized treatment plan. We recommend speaking to your insurance provider to learn more about your coverage plan and the benefits they offer.
If the coverage isn’t enough, don’t worry, ask your dentist if they provide in-house financing options.
