Repairing Structural Issues
Restorative dental care includes any procedure that aims to restore the normal function and appearance of your smile.
By repairing structural problems like damaged or missing teeth, our dentists can help restore your smile – and your oral health.
Depending on your issue, the dentists at Sheridan Dental Centre will determine the right restorative treatment option for you.
Some of the common restorative treatments include dental crowns, bridges, and dentures. These options can help improve your ability to chew, speak and maintain good oral hygiene.
Crowns are porcelain caps that are placed on top of teeth to restore their function and appearance. Crowns are used to attach bridges, cover dental implants or prevent a cracked tooth from worsening. They can also help to restore a discoloured or stained tooth to its natural appearance.
Periodontal (Gum) Therapy
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues of the mouth, including the gums, gingiva, alveolar bone, cementum, and periodontal ligament. If the disease is caught in the early stages, preventive therapy will be recommended. Otherwise treatment methods will depend on the severity of the disease.
Bridges are natural-looking tooth replacements that are bonded to existing teeth or dental implants to replace a section of missing teeth. Because they are custom-made, bridges are barely noticeable and can restore the natural contour of teeth and the bite between upper and lower teeth.
Full & Partial Dentures
Dentures are artificial teeth used to replace one missing tooth. several missing teeth in a row (partial dentures), or a whole jaw of missing teeth (full dentures). They allow patients with missing teeth to maintain their facial structure and talk and eat properly.
A root canal is a procedure where your dentist removes diseased blood vessels, nerves and tissues from the interior of a tooth. By removing the decay and bacteria, your dentist can help halt the spread of infection and prevent the need for an extraction.
TMJ Disorder Treatment
The temporomandibular joint (or TMJ) is a hinge that connects your jaw to your skull's temporal bones. This joint disorder can result in a variety of problems with your jaw and the muscles in your face, including painful symptoms. TMJ Disorder can be tested for, diagnosed, and treated by our dentists.
