At Parker Family Dental Center on University Boulevard you’ll find a wide array of cosmetic, restorative and general dentistry procedures available to fit your needs. Your dental treatment starts with an initial examination and then a complete oral cleaning.
Cosmetic dentists offer restorative procedures including fillings, bridges, porcelain veneers, dental crowns, gum recontouring and bonding. Restorative procedures are performed with the aim of restoring the dental appearance while repairing the cause of the problem. This ensures that you don’t need to have the same procedure over again in the future.
Some of the restorative dental procedures include root canal therapy (root canal therapy is sometimes referred to as tooth extraction), veneers, crowns, crown reconstruction, dental bridges, dentures, dental veneers, dental crowns and denture adhesives. Each of these procedures involves the use of a special surgical instrument or procedure. In each case the surgeon removes a portion of the tooth or root, implants it in the desired location and reshapes the tooth. Sometimes the entire tooth needs to be replaced.
Restorative dentistry is used to correct a variety of conditions that include tooth decay, tooth loss, impacted teeth and cavities. In most cases, dentists will perform this treatment on you if you’re experiencing any of these conditions. You may have experienced tooth decay before and want to treat it, or you may be concerned about the health of your gums, or about your bite.
If you have experienced any of these conditions and want to fix them, then restorative procedures may help. In addition to helping you fix or prevent the condition, they can also help restore your smile.
Regardless of what type of dental treatment you require, you should always seek the advice of your dentist. They’ll help you decide which restorative and/or cosmetic procedure will work best for you and help you make a good decision about what’s right for you.
Various forms of treatment involve the use of anesthesia. Although you may feel uncomfortable at first about the use of anesthesia, restorative procedures are often much less invasive than dental implants and the recovery period for both is much shorter.
When considering the benefits of a restorative or cosmetic dental treatment, you should consider your overall health. Your dentist will be able to tell you if you’re healthy enough to receive any type of dental treatment. If your family has had any oral problems in the past, or you’ve had problems with your teeth before, your dentist will be able to give you a referral to a specialist who specializes in dental problems. He or she will be able to advise you about the benefits of having a restorative dental treatment.
Don’t forget that visiting your dentist once every 6 months is recommended. The sooner you visit your dentist, the easier it will be to fix your dental problems and prevent them from occurring in the future. You also need to check with your dentist before you go ahead and get any dental treatments. The longer you delay getting care, the more severe your dental issues may become and the more likely they will be to worsen.
