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.
Dr. Sahil Goyal and the dental care team at the Frederick Center for Dentistry in Frederick, Maryland offer many procedures to repair your natural smile with comfortable treatment and natural-looking results. We use advanced digital technology and take a comprehensive approach to your diagnostics and care so that you can enjoy the best possible patient experience and a stable result.
Restorative Dental Care
A dental bridge is used to replace multiple missing teeth to restore the form and function of the teeth and gums. 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.
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 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. With great care and good oral hygiene, dental implants can last a lifetime.
Dentures and Partials
Full and partial dentures are used to replace an upper or lower row of lost teeth. Dentures support bone retention, improve bite function, and help to prevent gum recession. Restoring lost teeth with dentures provides a more stable foundation for the mouth.
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.
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.
