At New Roc Dental, we want to help you maintain a healthy smile for life. Unfortunately, sometimes dental injuries and illnesses cannot be avoided. That is why we are proud to offer a wide range of restorative services! Whether you have lost a tooth, are suffering from gum infection, or need a root canal, we are here to help!
What is Restorative Dentistry?
Sometimes there is no way to avoid an oral health problem. Restorative dentistry aims to repair damage and provide healing. If you find yourself with a severe dental injury or infection, we can use these techniques to restore your smile!
Restorative services at New Roc Dental include:
- Dental implants
- Root Canals
- And more!
What Are Dental Implants?
We use dental implants to replace one or more missing teeth. Implants are made of bio-friendly titanium and are surgically attached to the jaw bone. Once healed, your implants will merge with the jaw, providing additional support and promoting bone growth!
After a few months, you will be ready to receive your permanent tooth replacements. To finish your treatment, we will place custom ceramic crowns on the implants above the gum line. Your new teeth will look, feel, and function just like new!
Our team is trained to conduct grafting, placements, and restorations. We will refer patients to a dental surgeon for sinus grafts.
What Is the Difference Between Dentures and Bridges?
Dentures and bridges are two methods of replacing missing teeth. We use dentures to replace several or all of the teeth in a dental arch. Bridges, on the other hand, are best for replacing just one or two teeth in a row.
There are two types of dentures – full and partial. We use full dentures to replace all of the teeth in a dental arch. Partial dentures are perfect for replacing several teeth in a row. All dentures are removable – making them easy to clean and care for.
Traditional bridges are made up of three parts – two support crowns and a middle replacement tooth. The two support crowns, called abutments, are placed over the teeth on either side of the gap. They hold the replacement tooth in place. Bridges are a great way to restore the appearance and function of your smile!
Who Are Root Canals for?
When an infection spreads into the roots of a tooth, we may need to perform a root canal. For this procedure, Dr. Wynter will make an incision in the tooth and remove any decay. After sanitizing the tooth, she will fill it with a sturdy dental filling. She may also recommend placing a crown over the top of the tooth to restore its strength and function.
