Restorative Dental Solutions
Tooth decay, missing teeth, and jaw pain are just some of the conditions that can be treated by Dr. Cavanaugh. Restorative dental care plays an important role in the long term stability and health of your teeth and gums. Our office takes a comprehensive approach to the evaluation of your needs and a personalized approach to your treatment planning. Our goal is to deliver the best possible result using the most conservative methods to minimize the disruption to the tooth structure.
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, prevent teeth from shifting, help maintain a patient’s face shape, and give patients the ability to bite and chew evenly again. Dental bridges can be removable, fixed, or secured with dental implants for a more permanent restoration.
Chipped, worn, discolored, and damaged teeth can be covered with a dental crown. Dental implants can also be covered by a dental crown. We will take digital dental impressions and generate a fit that is custom to the patient. During treatment, the tooth receiving the dental crown will be prepared by removing any damaged or decayed structure. When complete, the permanent dental crown will be secured and polished for a natural look.
Dental implants are one of the most versatile restorative options. It is important to emphasize replacing a missing tooth or teeth since multiple problems can develop. The gap left by a missing tooth can be filled by remaining natural teeth shifting into place. Suddenly overcrowded teeth offer increasing difficulties, as they are hard to clean.
Dentures and Partials
Full and partial dentures help to rebuild the tooth structure and are color-matched to teeth for a brighter but natural look. Whether you benefit from full or partial dentures, both offer benefits. They improve the function of one’s bite, support bone retention, and help to prevent gum recession. Restoring lost teeth with dentures provides a more stable foundation for the mouth.
Periodontal Disease Treatment
Gum disease affects more people than one might think. Also known as periodontitis, this condition begins as gum inflammation and can quickly snowball into problems like loose teeth and decay. Our dentists find the source of decay and work to remove infection and provide a deep clean.
If you find yourself waking up with a sore jaw, you may have temporomandibular joint disorder, or TMJ. Teeth grinding is one of the most common symptoms of TMJ. Dr. Cavanaugh can give you a mouthguard that protects teeth from further damage and helps realign the jaw.
