Our Restorative Dentistry Services in Sahuarita, AZ
Dental restorations and restorative treatments can renew the teeth, gums, and jaw joints. Addressing restorative dental problems can make everyday life more comfortable. Our restorative treatments include:
A single dental implant is a titanium metal post, abutment, and dental crown. One or more dental implants can secure false teeth and offer longer-lasting restoration than removable options. Dental implants create a foundation for restorations and improve speech, biting, and chewing capabilities.
A bridge fills in tooth gaps in the smile left by one or more lost teeth. Dental bridges can use adjacent natural teeth or dental implants for support. Bridges can last longer with the support of implants.
Complete and partial dentures replace rows and full arches of missing permanent teeth. Dentures traditionally lay on top of the gums. However, dental implants provide stability once they become a permanent part of the smile. Patients with rows of missing teeth in different parts of their mouth benefit from partial dentures. Complete or full dentures replace the upper and lower teeth.
Also known as tooth caps, dental crowns cover and protect single teeth. Tooth crowns can address tooth damage and wear. Additionally, a dental crown can cover weakened teeth following a root canal. Crowns create more stable, balanced smiles.
Periodontitis, or gum disease, forms from harmful bacteria that break down the gum tissue. Over time, patients with gum disease experience pain, bleeding, and recessed gum tissue. Regular dental care and deep cleanings can help prevent permanent damage to the gums. For more information on gum disease and how we diagnose and treat it, please see Periodontal Disease Treatment.
Temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD) create uncomfortable symptoms like jaw and facial pain, headaches, migraines, and bruxism. Wearing a custom nightguard during sleep can help address TMD symptoms, including teeth clenching and grinding. Physical therapy and a soft diet for multiple weeks can also alleviate pain in the jaw muscles. For more information on TMJ disorders and how we treat them in our patients, please see TMJ Treatment.
Restorative Dentistry Q&A
We welcome you to learn more about restorative dental care with answers to these common questions:
Do I have gum disease if my gums bleed?
Bleeding gums are often a sign of gum inflammation or gingivitis. Gingival bleeding typically occurs when you brush or floss. While gingivitis is a precursor to periodontitis, we can reverse gum inflammation with a good oral hygiene routine and regular dental cleanings. Your gums may also bleed if you have an injury.
How long do dental implants last?
A dental implant itself can last a lifetime. However, over time, you may need to replace the crown, bridge, or denture that an implant or implants support. Continuing to brush and floss and visiting the dentist for regular cleanings can help prevent gum disease and decay that impact implant stability.
What do I do if I have multiple restorative dental problems?
Our team can fully reconstruct your smile if you have multiple dental problems, including missing, damaged, or infected teeth. We will examine your smile and take dental X-rays to treatment plan a combination of treatments. Our team has the expertise to professionally plan and execute treatment that renews the full function of the smile.
