Maintaining Oral Health with Restorative Dentistry
People have become increasingly aware of the importance of proper oral health care. With the improvements in dental education, instances of tooth decay and gum disease have declined overall. Still, few people escape the necessity of restorative dental care, and modern dentistry provides outstanding solutions to most oral health issues.
Eagle Creek Dental Center in Burnaby is equipped to address the various afflictions our teeth experience. Whether it be a simple cavity, advanced decay, or tooth loss, Dr. Nabi Burnaby restores health and beauty to smiles in Burnaby and surrounding communities.
Cavity Treatment with Tooth-colored Fillings, Inlays, and Onlays
Filling cavities are the most common restorative procedure performed. Dr. Barnaby uses a composite resin that is matched to the natural shade of your tooth’s color. Tooth-colored fillings require minimal alteration to tooth structure since the material is securely bonded onto teeth.
Larger cavities can be treated with partial crowns, also known as inlays and onlays. After decay is removed, a precise impression is sent to a lab where a porcelain prosthetic is designed to restore the tooth’s structure. The porcelain is affixed onto the tooth and matched to the tooth’s color for a beautiful restoration.
Root Canal Therapy to Maintain Tooth Function
If decay has reached the inner chamber, or pulp, of the tooth, then Dr. Nabi may recommend root canal therapy to save it. After the infected pulp has been removed, the tooth is capped with a porcelain crown. Porcelain crowns protect the tooth and allow it to fully function. They are matched to neighboring teeth for a natural and lustrous restoration.
Dental Options after Tooth Loss
There are many causes of tooth loss: like accidents, gum disease, or advanced decay. Whether it be one tooth, a row, or a full arch, there are several ways you can restore missing teeth:
- Dental implant restorations provide a permanent anchor for a beautiful porcelain crown. Crowns are life-like and designed with the patient’s input. Implant restorations provide the full function of a tooth, and they secure the health of the jaw.
- Fixed bridges are two or more porcelain crowns cemented onto neighboring teeth that have also been encased with a porcelain crown. These are a permanent restoration that beautifully matches neighboring teeth.
- Dentures and Partial Dentures are removable prosthetics that rely on adhesives or metal clasps to remain secure in the mouth. They are made of a beautiful acrylic and provide many of the functions of natural teeth.
