What is Restorative Dental Care?
Restorative dental care services include procedures that aims to restore the normal function and appearance of your smile.
Our dentists can work with you to develop a plan to restore your smile and your oral health by repairing structural problems such as damaged or missing teeth.
Depending on the condition of your oral health, the dentists at Foxcreek Dental will recommend restorative treatments that are right for you.
Dental crowns are tooth-shaped protective caps used to fully cover a damaged tooth, in order to help prevent further decay or deterioration of the tooth. Our dentists can also use crowns to help restore the appearance and function of teeth.
A dental bridge can be bonded to existing teeth or dental implants in order to replace a section of missing teeth. Because they are custom-made, bridges are barely noticeable and can help to restore the natural contour of teeth and the bite.
At Foxcreek Dental, we use tooth-coloured composite fillings to discretely fill a cavity or repair damage such as a cracks in a tooth. These fillings can are less noticeable to others when you speak or smile and can withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing.
Full & Partial Dentures
Dentures are artificial teeth used to replace one missing tooth or several in a row (partial dentures), or a whole jaw of missing teeth (full dentures). Replacing missing teeth with dentures will help you to eat and speak properly, as well as maintain your facial structure.
Inlays & Onlays
Inlays and onlays are used to repair a tooth when the damage is too extensive to be fixed by a standard filling. Inlays and onlays are custom-made in a dental laboratory and are then permanently cemented to the tooth as a single piece.
During a root canal procedure your dentist will remove diseased blood vessels, nerves and tissues from a tooth's interior. Removing the decay and bacteria, can help to halt the spread of infection and prevent the need for an extraction.
Periodontal (Gum) Therapy
Periodontal or gum disease is an infection of the gums, gingiva, alveolar bone, cementum, and periodontal ligament. Treatment of gum disease will depend on the severity. If caught in the early stages preventive therapy will be recommended, otherwise more invasive treatments will be required in order to restore your oral health.
TMJ Disorder Treatment
The temporomandibular joint (or TMJ) is the hinge that connects your jaw to the temporal bones of your skull. TMJ disorder can cause a range of issues with your jaw and the muscles in your face, including popping or cracking sounds with chewing, or even jaw pain, and headaches. Our dentists can diagnose and treat TMJ disorder.
Using CAD/CAM technology, our dentists can create and place porcelain crowns, inlays and onlays in a single dental appointment to help restore your smile. No impressions, no temporaries - just tooth-coloured, metal-free restorations in one easy visit.
