What is Restorative Dentistry?
Do you have missing, broken, crooked, or cracked teeth? Dental problems are not only an aesthetic issue but can affect the health of your teeth, gums, and 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.
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 dental 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, visit dental bridge.
Dental crowns protect and restore discolored, chipped, worn, or damaged teeth. Dentists can also use a crown to cap a dental implant. Dr. Goyal uses 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.

A dental implant is a versatile restorative treatment that can replace a single missing tooth. We can even use dental implants to replace many teeth, or a full arch of missing teeth by securing a denture. An implant is a titanium post that the dentist surgically inserts into the jawbone. Here, it will act as an artificial tooth root and a strong base for the dental restoration.
We provide our patients with the most natural tooth replacement solutions. With great care and good oral hygiene, dental implants can last a lifetime. To see if this tooth replacement procedure is right for you, visit dental implants.
Dentures and Partials
Dentures are removable dental appliances that we use 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. Implant-supported dentures will support bone retention, offer a better bite force, and help to prevent gum recession.

Gum Disease Treatment
Gum disease, also known as periodontitis, is a serious dental condition. Bleeding gums, mouth sores, and even loose teeth are signs of gum disease. What begins as gum inflammation from plaque and infection can quickly snowball into severe problems. Problems like gum recession and tooth loss.
We can use scaling and root planing to remove plaque from beneath your gum tissues and reattach the tooth roots. We can also use dental lasers to remove infected gum tissue. To learn more about our treatments for gum disease, visit periodontal disease treatment.
Frequent headaches or jaw pain are signs of a TMJ disorder. The temporomandibular joints that connect the jawbone to the skull can cause pain. They can also cause problems like teeth clenching and grinding. In addition, misaligned, crooked, or missing teeth contribute to TMJ disorders.
Our dentists recommend restorative and orthodontic treatments for TMJ issues. To learn more about what causes TMJ disorders, visit TMJ treatment.
