Restorative Dental Treatments
Restorative dentistry encompasses a wide range of dental treatments. We focus on restoring the health and function of your smile. At Prairie Dental Group, we treat damaged teeth and replace lost or missing teeth with dental treatments designed to restore and strengthen. Restorative dental procedures that we offer patients include:
Dental bridges can be used to replace one or more consecutive teeth. They utilize the support of your surrounding teeth the hold a prosthetic tooth in the empty space and fill in the gaps of your smile. Additionally, patients who receive a dental bridge are able to enjoy their new smiles without messy adhesives or dietary restrictions.
Dental crowns act as caps that cover and protect teeth. They are used to cover damaged, misshapen, or discolored teeth, as well as hold dental bridges in place or to cover dental implants. Made of sturdy porcelain ceramic material, dental crowns strengthen weak teeth and blend in with natural teeth. Dental crowns are custom-fit to each patient for personalized treatment.
This restorative solution not only improves the form and function of a patient’s bite but also provides them with a more balanced smile. Whether you need one or multiple dental implants, we will work with you each step of the way. Furthermore, dental bridges and dentures may also be secured with dental implants for a more stable and secure end-result.
Dentures and Partials
Are you missing multiple teeth or have arches of missing teeth? You can restore your smile with full or partial dentures. Dentures are a restorative treatment that provides a secure and stable bite for patients with multiple missing teeth. Patients can prevent shifting and overcrowded teeth with this treatment option.
Gum Disease Treatment
Periodontitis affects millions of Americans each year. Gingivitis, or gum inflammation, precedes gum disease, so it is important to catch it in the early stages. There are multiple signs of periodontitis to look out for, including swollen or bleeding gums, loose teeth, toothaches, or mouth sores. Scaling and root planing, periodontal splinting, occlusal adjustment, and Arestin® are all used to combat gum disease and reverse the infection.
TMJ, or temporomandibular joint disorder, is a condition that can cause teeth clenching and grinding as well as jaw pain. The goal of TMJ treatment is to relieve the negative effects of jaw pain and bruxism. Nightguards are beneficial to patients with TMJ as they prevent teeth grinding and stop tooth damage.
