What is Restorative Dentistry?

Do you have missing, broken, crooked, or cracked teeth? These dental problems are not only an aesthetic issue but can affect the health of your teeth and gums as well as the function of your bite. Missing teeth can expose the gums to bacteria and infection and cause remaining teeth to shift position. Crooked teeth can affect bite alignment and make it difficult for patients to remove bacteria and plaque in areas that are hard to reach. These types of dental problems can be fixed with various types of restorative dental treatments. Restorative dentistry aims to restore the function, appearance, and overall oral health of patients by utilizing various treatments and procedures. A restorative dentist will examine your teeth, gums, and entire mouth to diagnose various dental health conditions then offer the proper treatment to fix it.

Restorative Dentistry in Frederick, MD

As an expert restorative dentist, Dr. Sahil Goyal provides many types treatments to fix damaged, decayed, and missing teeth. The goal is to remove the damage or decay then repair the tooth or replace the tooth. Dr. Goyal will work closely with each patient to develop a treatment plan to meet their specific needs.

Dental Bridge

A dental bridge is used to replace multiple missing teeth to restore the form and function of the teeth and gums. A bridge is made up of two dnetal crowns on each end with artificial teeth (pontics) located in the middle. They are fused together to create a single fixture. Dental bridges can help fill in the gaps left by missing teeth, support any remaining tooth structure, and prevent shifting teeth. This option also helps patients maintain their face shape and bite and chew evenly. Dental bridges may be removable or secured with dental implants for a more permanent restoration. To learn more about the bridge process, see dental bridge.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns protect and restore discolored, chipped, worn, or damaged teeth. Dental implants can also be covered by a dental crown. Dr. Goyal utilizes CEREC to take digital dental impressions and generate a fit that is custom to the patient. Using CAD/CAM technology, he can create a custom dental crown in just one day. Dental crowns, also known as caps, will cover the entire visible portion of a damaged tooth. They are used to restore the strength, shape, size, and appearance of a tooth that is extensively decayed, fractured, weakened, or after root canal treatment. To learn more about same day dental crowns, see dental crown.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are a versatile restorative treatment that can replace a single missing tooth, multiple teeth where a dental bridge may be used, or a full arch of missing teeth by securing a denture. An implant is a titanium post that is surgically inserted into the jawbone. Here, it will act as an artificial tooth root and a strong base for the dental restoration. They provide patients with the most natural tooth replacement solution. With great care and good oral hygiene, dental implants can last a lifetime. To see if this tooth replacement solution is right for you, see dental implants.

Dentures and Partials

Dentures are removable dental appliances that are used to replace an upper or lower row of lost teeth.There are partials dentures which replace several missing teeth on the arch, essentially filling in the gaps in your smile. There are also full dentures which replace all the teeth on the arch. A traditional denture relies on suction, denture adhesive, or remaining teeth to stay in place. It is also an option to secure a full or partial denture with dental implants. Restoring lost teeth with dentures provides a more stable foundation for the mouth. However, if you secure the denture with implants, it will support bone retention, offer better bite, and help to prevent gum recession. To learn about the all the different types of dentures, see dentures and partials.

Gum Disease Treatment

Gum disease, also known as periodontitis, is a serious dental condition that is marked by bleeding gums, mouth sores, and even loose teeth. What begins as gum inflammation from plaque and infection can quickly snowball into problems like gum recession and tooth loss. Scaling and root planing can be used to remove plaque from beneath the gum tissues and reattach tooth roots. Laser dentistry may also be used to remove infected gum tissue. To learn more about the treatment we offer, see periodontal disease treatment.

TMJ Treatment

If you have frequent headaches or jaw pain, you could have a TMJ disorder. The temporomandibular joints that connect the jawbone to the skull can cause pain or problems like teeth clenching and grinding when it is damaged or misaligned. In addition, misaligned, crooked, or missing teeth contribute to TMJ disorders. Our dentists recommend restorative or orthodontic treatment for those patients. To learn more about what causes TMJ disorders, see TMJ treatment.
