Restorative Dentistry in Langford
Dental professionals have many treatments for the various levels of trauma that affect teeth. There is virtually no dental condition that a dentist cannot address, including tooth loss. It is encouraging to know that restorative dentistry keeps teeth both healthy and attractive.
The reward of helping patients achieve optimal oral health is part of the reason Dr. Marjan at Pacific Rim Dental Centre enjoys her profession. Her dental office in Langford and Victoria provides quality and compassionate dental care.
Dr. Marjan Provides Tooth-Colored Fillings and Crowns
Few people are able to avoid developing tooth decay. Tooth-colored fillings are the most modern method of cavity treatment and offer several benefits. They are made of a composite resin that can be matched to surrounding dentition. They are easily bonded onto teeth while maintaining maximum tooth structure. People cannot detect cavity treatments done with composite fillings.
Teeth with large cavities can be treated with partial or full crowns. After Dr. Marjan removes the cavity, she takes an impression of the tooth so a lab can design a customized prosthetic that restores the health and the anatomy of the tooth. Partial and full crowns match the natural color of tooth enamel and are seamlessly bonded onto teeth.
Root Canal Therapy and Crown Restorations at Pacific Rim Dental Centre
Root canal therapy is another restorative technique offered at Pacific Rim Dental Centre. When decay reaches the pulp, the tooth becomes infected. Patients typically experience toothaches, and if not promptly treated, neighboring teeth are at risk of infection. If the infection enters the bloodstream, it can threaten vital organs. Root canal therapy eliminates the infected pulp and prevents tooth loss.
Teeth with severe damage whose tooth roots that are still functioning are often restored to health with either porcelain or ceramic crowns. Crowns encase a tooth to protect it from further damage. Dr. Marjan removes the decay and then takes an impression of the tooth so a lab can fabricate a crown that looks and feels like the original tooth. Crowns are durable and appear lifelike.
Replace Missing Teeth in Langford
Tooth loss is a dilemma that modern dentistry can resolve with several different treatment options:
Dental Implant Restorations are the most comprehensive treatment for tooth loss, replacing both the tooth root and the crown. They provide the full force of chewing and appear as a real tooth. The implant posts also maintain the health of the jaw bone and surrounding dentition.
Fixed Bridges can restore one to three missing teeth with pontic prosthetic teeth that are securely anchored onto adjacent teeth. Before placement of the bridge, the anchor teeth are fortified with crowns. The entire bridge is matched to surrounding dentition for a restoration of both function and beauty.
Partial Dentures and Dentures are removable acrylic prosthetics that are matched to teeth and gums. Partial dentures attach to neighboring teeth with metal clasps, and full arch dentures rely on adhesive paste. Dentures provide an attractive aesthetic and restore the natural function of teeth.
