What is Restorative Dental Care?
Restorative dental care includes any procedure that aims to restore damaged teeth and enhance oral function and general health.
Our dental team performs services including root canals and fillings to help repair structural problems such as damaged or missing teeth while reducing pain.
The sooner you receive treatment, the less likely it is that you will experience complications later on. Long-term, this can help save you a significant amount of time, money and anxiety.
Restorative dental care can also go hand in hand with a number of cosmetic services as well. This is because certain restorative services such as crowns or bridges may also help alter the physical appearance of your smile.
Depending on your issue, the dentists at Allegra Dental will determine the right restorative treatment option for you.
Crowns are porcelain caps that are placed on top of teeth to restore their function and appearance. Crowns are used to attach bridges, cover dental implants or prevent a cracked tooth from worsening. They can also assist in restoring a discoloured or discoloured tooth to its original appearance.
Bridges are tooth replacements that resemble natural teeth and are attached to healthy teeth or dental implants to replace a lost tooth or teeth. Because they are custom-made, bridges are barely noticeable and can restore the natural contour of teeth and the bite between the upper and lower teeth.
At Allegra Dental, we use composite (tooth-coloured) fillings to repair a cavity or tooth damage, like a crack. These fillings are able to sustain the stress of chewing and can be used on either the front or back teeth.
Inlays & Onlays
Inlays and onlays are tooth-coloured porcelain fillings used to repair cavities when the damage is too extensive for a standard dental filling. They are custom-made in a dental laboratory and are then permanently cemented to the tooth as a single piece.
A root canal is a procedure where your dentist removes diseased blood vessels, nerves and tissues from the interior of a tooth. By removing the decay and bacteria, your dentist can help halt the spread of infection and prevent the need for an extraction. This can help protect the overall health of your tooth.
TMJ Disorder Treatment
The temporomandibular joint (or TMJ) is a hinge that connects your jaw to the temporal bones of your skull. This disorder can cause a number of issues with your jaw which can include painful symptoms. TMJ Disorder can be tested for, diagnosed and treated by our dentists.
