Restorative Dental Care for A Lasting Smile
Dental Bridges: Are you missing multiple teeth? Dental bridges can help fill in the gaps left by missing teeth while providing long-lasting support. They also help support any remaining tooth structure, restore the ability to bite and chew evenly, prevent teeth from shifting, and maintain a patient’s face shape. Dental bridges can be removable or secured with dental implants.
Dental Crowns: If you have discolored or worn teeth, you can benefit from dental crowns. Also known as dental caps, dental crowns cover teeth and dental restorations. Dr. Patel will prepare the tooth receiving the crown and then take dental impressions using CEREC. Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics or CEramic REConstruction uses computer technology to take impressions and generate a precise fitting quickly. After several weeks, we insert the permanent crowns.
Dental Implants: These are for patients with one or more lost teeth. They can also replace worn-down and ill-fitting dentures. This very popular restorative dental procedure can give you a permanently beautiful smile.
Dentures & Partials: Complete or full dentures are used to replace most or all of a patient’s teeth. An advantage of this option is that patients have teeth during the healing period. Conventional dentures can then be made once the tissues have healed after six to eight weeks. A removable denture or overdenture is an option that fits over several remaining natural teeth or dental implants. Partial dentures fill in the gaps left by missing teeth and are a great option for patients with several missing teeth but some natural ones remaining.
Periodontal Therapy: One of the major causes of tooth loss in adults is gum disease. Also known as periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by the infection and destruction of the tissue surrounding, supporting, and protecting teeth. The condition can lead to other major health problems, so treating teeth and gums properly is important before symptoms persist.
Prosthodontics: Prosthodontics is an area of dentistry that pertains to diagnosing and treating problems involving missing teeth and jaw structure. As a prosthodontist, Dr. Patel can meet your needs under one roof for consistency of care and the best possible result. She can help patients with extensive tooth damage, missing teeth, and advanced gum disease reestablish a healthy and beautiful smile.
TMJ Treatment: Do you often find yourself clenching or grinding your teeth? Do you suffer from chronic jaw pain? You may have a TMJ disorder. The temporomandibular joint connects the jawbone to the skull, and pain can arise in the jaw joint and the muscles that control the jaw. Other often painful symptoms can damage teeth and make it difficult to use the jaw and teeth properly. We can treat TMJ with oral appliances.
