Restore your oral health and preserve your future health.
Restorative dentistry provides long-term oral health solutions.
The Mouth-Body Connection
The teeth, the jaw, and the supporting muscles and tissues are an interconnected system in your body. When one part of that system is damaged or broken, it affects every part of your oral health. Teeth anchored to the jaw and supported by surrounding tissue perform so many tasks outside of chewing. For example, the loss of your teeth changes the shape of your face due to tissue and muscle loss. Additionally, a missing tooth changes the density of your jaw and the health of your gums and muscles. It even changes the way you speak. And gums that are infected, inflamed, and suffering from periodontitis signal to your immune system that there is something amiss. The inflammation that is triggered by this affects your systemic health, not just your oral health.
The wellness of your mouth has far-reaching health implications. Restoring your smile is a vital step to restoring and preserving your health.
At The Tooth Doc, we offer advanced restorative dentistry.
Restorative dentistry is an approach to caring for your oral health that focuses on restoring your smile back to health. The added bonus is that our highly skilled dental team will not only restore the function of your smile but its beauty as well. Restorative dentistry is one of our primary focuses, and we have extensive experience in helping patients preserve and restore their oral health. Advanced restorative dentistry can offer a wider range of restorative options, such as dental implants for missing teeth.
Stop pain at its source.
Headaches, jaw pain, neck pain, face pain, and poor sleep are just a few signs that you may be suffering from temporomandibular joint disorder, or TMD. A popping sound and sensation when you open and close your mouth or chew is also a classic sign of TMJ disorder. This could be the result of trauma or a problematic bite. Additionally, those who suffer from bruxism (grinding and clenching of the teeth) are at higher risk of developing TMD. We help people suffering from TMD to find a solution, and that solution starts with a thorough evaluation to uncover the root of the issue.
Restore the beauty of your smile.
Inlays & Onlays
If a tooth has a large cavity or break that cannot be fixed with a filling, an inlay or onlay can protect your tooth from further damage by removing large cavities and placing a ceramic or metal restoration in that area and leave you with a tooth that looks naturally beautiful.
Keeping your natural teeth as long as possible is the goal.
A tooth that has been badly damaged by decay has a weakened structure that makes it more prone to cracking and breaking. Or perhaps it has already cracked and is in danger of further damage. A dental crown can protect your tooth by covering the remaining tooth structure. This solution will help you keep your natural tooth longer, which is the best possible scenario.
At The Tooth Doc, you won’t have to endure a messy impression to receive a dental crown. We offer digital impressions and same day crowns as well as porcelain crowns.
Bridge the gap in your smile and restore function.
When you have lost a tooth, there are options to restore the function of your smile and prevent the rest of your teeth from shifting. A dental bridge is a restoration option that spans the gap where you’ve lost a tooth and provides stability for chewing. A dental bridge looks like a tooth and is color-matched to your smile. Because a dental bridge is anchored to your surrounding teeth, it will also stop the rest of your teeth from shifting into the gap.
Partial dentures can keep your remaining teeth from shifting.
If you have several missing teeth, you know how hard it can be to chew your favorite foods. Partial dentures might be an option for you to regain function. Partial dentures are a removable tooth-loss solution that uses your remaining teeth to clip into place and look natural. If you’re missing several teeth in a row, partial dentures can fill in that gap and keep your other teeth from shifting into the space.
Dentures provide you with a complete tooth-loss solution.
Removable dentures are an option for many people with complete tooth loss. We take great care in providing our patients with an ideal denture fit to prevent rubbing and to offer stability while speaking and eating. The process begins with a thorough evaluation of your current oral health. If you are a candidate for removable dentures, creating a made-for-you denture is possible without any gooey, gag-inducing impression trays. We utilize our digital impression tool to take precise measurements to guide the creation of your dentures.
Gain greater stability with implant-supported dentures.
Implant-supported dentures are dentures that are secured in place by attaching them to strategically placed dental implants. This option offers increased security as the implant-supported dentures will not slip.
Permanent tooth-loss solutions can protect your health.
Dental implants can help restore your oral health and can look incredibly natural. Posts are implanted into the jaw and, during healing, those posts integrate with your jaw during a process called osseointegration. Prosthetics that look like teeth will be secured to the implant post, restoring function and offering you a beautiful smile.
Tooth loss also affects the soft tissue and muscle in and surrounding your oral cavity. Talking and chewing require the use of your facial muscles. When there are no teeth, those jaw and facial muscles atrophy and change the shape of your face, but dental implants preserve your face shape.
Full-arch implants are another option for restoration.
Full-Arch Dental Implants
For some patients suffering from tooth loss, full-arch dental implants are a better option for restoring function and beauty. It is a tooth-loss solution that requires fewer dental implant posts to support the full arch of prosthetic teeth. This is an especially helpful option for those who have been long-time denture wearers or have suffered from bone loss as a result of tooth loss or disease.
