What is Restorative Dental Care?
Restorative dental care includes procedures that aim to restore the normal appearance and function of your smile.
By repairing structural issues affecting your smile like damaged or missing teeth, our dental team will be able to restore your oral health and your smile.
Depending on your issue, the dentists at Landmark Dental Centre will determine the right restorative treatment option for you.
Crowns are a porcelain cap that is placed on top of a tooth in order to restore both its appearance and its function. Crowns are used to attach bridges, to cover dental implants and to prevent cracked teeth from becoming worse. They may even be able to help restore a discoloured or stained tooth its natural appearance.
Bridges are natural-looking tooth replacements that are bonded to existing teeth and implants in order to replace one missing tooth or multiple teeth in a row. Since bridges are custom-made for your smile, they are difficult to notice to the casual observer and can restore the biting function of your smile as well as the look and contour of your teeth.
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. Our periodontist is able to provide treatments for gum issues to our patients.
The dental team at Landmark Dental Centre uses composite fillings that are coloured to look the same as teeth in order to repair damage from tooth decay. These fillings are able to withstand the stress of chewing and can be used on the both the front and back teeth in your mouth.
Inlays & Onlays
Inlays and onlays are porcelain fillings that are coloured to match your teeth. They are used to repair cavities when the tooth decay is too extensive for standard filling procedures. These restorations are custom-made in a laboratory and are then permanently cemented to a patient's tooth.
Full & Partial Dentures
Dentures are removable artificial teeth that can be used to replace one or more teeth in your mouth. They can even be used to replace a whole jaw of teeth. These restorations allow patients to speak, eat and maintain their facial structure despite missing teeth.
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 TMJ (temporomandibular joint) is a hinge that connects your jaw to the temporal bones on your skull. This disorder can cause a host of issues with both the jaw and muscles including painful symptoms. Our dentist can test for and treat TMJ Disorder.
Botox® is a purified protein that can be used in dentistry. When injected into the facial muscles, it releases neurotoxins, preventing the muscles from contracting and helping them to relax. Using Botox, our dentists can help treat jaw pain and headaches and provide relief from clenching and grinding.
