A smile is the shortest distance between two people.
Restorative dentistry is required to restore damaged teeth to their original function. The dentists at Family Dental Office can help you properly care for your teeth and can provide restorative dentistry procedures at our office in Grand Falls-Windsor.
Our restorative services include:
Fillings help to restore a tooth that has been damaged by decay back to its normal function. During this procedure, a dentist will first remove the decayed tooth material, clean the affected area and then fill the cavity with a filling material, usually a composite resin.
Crowns are synthetic caps, usually made of a material like porcelain, placed on the top of a tooth. Crowns are typically used to restore a tooth's function and appearance following a restorative procedure such as a root canal. When decay in a tooth has become so advanced that large portions of the tooth must be removed, crowns are often used to restore the tooth.
Bridges are used to replace a missing tooth. The dentist begins the procedure by placing two crowns on either side of the gap, where the missing tooth used to be. These crowns are then used as support for a new artificial tooth that is placed between the two crowns.
Root canal therapy
Root canals are tiny passageways that branch off from beneath the top of the tooth, coursing their way vertically downward, until they reach the tip of the root. Sometimes the pulp within these canals can become infected and must be removed through root canal therapy in order to prevent the infection from spreading.
Implants are synthetic structures that are placed in the area of the tooth normally occupied by the root. Implants are anchored to the jawbone or metal framework on the bone and act as a foundation for an artificial tooth or permanent bridge. In some cases, implants can be used to attach dentures.
