Who Is a Candidate for Oral Restoration?
People who require oral restoration may be those who have several teeth that require treatment to repair damaged or missing teeth that need to be replaced. You might even need to have the majority of your teeth addressed to fully and beautifully restore your dental health. Oral restoration treatment gives you the benefit of a plan to restore your teeth and your smile. You can combine multiple treatments to create a healthy smile that you are happy to share again!
You might benefit from oral restoration if you have injured, cracked, or damaged teeth, missing teeth, or worn or eroded teeth.
How Is It Carried Out?
Every treatment for oral restoration is tailored to the individual patient and their needs and desires. There may be a few teeth that require restoration, but full-mouth oral restoration is also necessary for people who have multiple teeth that require treatment. Oral restoration usually means that several different treatments and sessions are necessary to produce the desired results. A custom treatment plan will outline the procedures and appointments that will be needed to help you restore your smile.
What Treatments Are Offered?
Oral restoration starts with proper planning. When a patient needs to have a few different treatments, it’s essential to know what will be carried out and the best order for each treatment. To create a plan for oral restoration, Dr. Rinaldi will start by examining your teeth and gums to get a full picture of any damage or missing teeth, the health of your gum tissue, and your existing bone and jaw structure. He can then use this information to form a plan that meets the desires of each individual patient. You can discuss available treatments with Dr. Rinaldi and ask any questions about how each treatment will help you.
Dental crowns are a way to restore and protect a tooth that has been cracked or damaged. A cap is placed over the tooth to strengthen it and restore its previous size and shape. The crown is matched in color to the natural teeth around it, and fully covers the visible portion of the tooth that is being repaired. Crowns are suitable for teeth that have been damaged through decay or trauma, providing support and stability and improving the tooth’s look. Our dental crowns are designed to last, restoring the functionality of your teeth for many years to come.
Most people have fillings, but many worry about the visibility of the fillings that they have. When you need a filling, there is an alternative to metal amalgam fillings, which don’t match the color of your teeth. Composite resin can be matched to the color of your natural teeth so that the filling is practically invisible. There won’t be a flash of silver when you’re talking, and no one will be able to tell that you have fillings. Composite fillings are ideal for bottom teeth or when you require many fillings, and you don’t want them to be visible.
A dental bridge offers an option to replace one or more missing teeth. A crown is placed on the teeth either side of the gap left by the missing tooth or teeth. These crowns are then used to hold one or more artificial teeth in place. Unlike a denture, a bridge is not removable. A bridge is an effective way to replace one or more teeth if you have natural teeth that can support the artificial tooth with the help of crowns. It restores your bite and your smile too.
Dental implants offer another, permanent way to replace missing teeth. A dental implant replaces the root of the tooth and is implanted into the gum and jaw bone. The implant is used as a support for a fixed or sometimes removable artificial tooth. Dental implants can be inserted individually, and some systems allow for multiple teeth to be attached to between four and eight implants. Replacing missing teeth with dental implants offers a solution that is closest to having your natural teeth back. You can restore your smile, bite, and self-esteem with this permanent solution for missing teeth.
