Restorative Dentistry in Dundalk, MD
Our restorative dental solutions create fuller and more stable smiles for years to come. Read more about each type of restorative service:
A tooth crown acts as a cap to cover and protect single teeth. In addition, crowns can cover worn or misshapen teeth, crooked teeth, and dental implants. We offer same-day dental crowns for our patients using CEREC. Additionally, because we use porcelain ceramic, the dental crowns easily blend in with the rest of the smile.
Implants are titanium screws that replace lost permanent teeth and secure dental restorations. Dental implants can restore a single missing tooth or support a dental bridge or denture. Once the titanium implants fuse with the jaw bone, they become a foundational part of the smile. Patients who receive dental implants or implant-supported bridges or dentures can eat, drink, and speak naturally with their new restoration.
This dental restoration “bridges the gap” left by one or more consecutive lost teeth. Dental bridges can restore one to four missing teeth. Traditional bridges require the support of teeth adjacent to a lost tooth, while dental implants ensure that dental bridges last longer. Implants not only improve the appearance of the smile but restore the full function of the bite.
A denture can restore rows or arches of lost teeth. Many patients may think of removable dentures when they think of this type of restoration. However, removable dentures require a messy adhesive that does not create a stable bite. Implant-supported dentures offer a fully functional and aesthetically pleasing smile. Patients who receive implant-supported dentures combat problems like facial sagging, speech issues, and a lack of proper nutrition.
Gum Disease Treatment
Periodontitis or gum disease is a bacterial infection caused by the buildup of harmful bacteria on and beneath the gum tissue. Patients with gum disease often experience bleeding, red, and inflamed gums. We provide deep cleaning treatments to eliminate harmful bacteria and prevent gum damage.
Restorative Dental FAQs
Read answers to common questions that many patients have about restorative solutions:
How do missing teeth affect your smile?
Missing teeth leave gaps in the smile and lead to more issues that affect the overall health and well-being of patients. For example, many patients with missing teeth experience problems like tooth decay if harmful bacteria build up in missing tooth sockets. Missing teeth also create an uneven bite which is often a risk factor for TMD.
Do I have gum disease if I have bleeding gums?
You may have gingivitis if your gums bleed when you brush and floss. Also known as gum inflammation, gingivitis is a precursor to gum disease. Bleeding gums and other symptoms such as red, swollen, or irritated gum tissues can indicate gum disease. Contact our office if you experience this problem and we will provide a deep cleaning.
Can I receive implants if I have a traditional bridge or removable denture?
Most patients are implant candidates. If you have a removable restoration and want implants, we will determine your candidacy. We can treat patients who have problems, including gum disease, before implant treatment. Furthermore, bone grafting treatment allows patients to create enough support for multiple implants.
