Restorative Dentistry in Marriottsville, MD
Our restorative dental services revitalize the health and overall function of the smile:
A dental bridge is a dental restoration that can replace one to four missing teeth. We offer fixed bridges and recommend implant-secured dental bridges to patients who have enough jawbone tissue to secure implants.
Tooth crowns are caps that fully cover and protect teeth. We often recommend dental crowns for patients with worn teeth, tooth fractures, or fillings. Crowns add extra support to teeth following a root canal. Our porcelain ceramic crowns not only look natural but provide durability.
Implants are one of the longest-lasting options for patients with missing teeth. Dental implants consist of a titanium post, abutment, and crown. During a process called osseointegration, the implant posts fuse with the jaw bone. Once the dental implants heal, they are a permanent part of the patient’s smile.
Dentures & Partials
We provide dentures to restore multiple lost permanent teeth. Partial dentures replace rows of multiple missing teeth. Full dentures can restore the upper and lower tooth arches. Traditional dentures are removable. However, we recommend implant-secured dentures because they allow patients to bite and chew naturally.
Periodontal Disease Treatment
Our dental office offers deep cleaning treatments and laser dentistry to patients with gum disease. Gum disease is a common but highly damaging problem caused by bacteria buildup on and beneath the gum tissue. Patients with gum disease can experience irritated gums, gum recession, and bone loss.
Temporomandibular joint disorders create bite problems that lead to bruxism, headaches, and jaw pain. TMJ treatments can include physical therapy or nightguards. These solutions alleviate jaw pain and prevent tooth wear. Contact us if you experience pain when eating or morning headaches. The cause could be TMD.
Restorative Dentistry FAQs
If you want to know more about restorative care, read answers to common questions about our restorative treatments:
What causes TMJ disorders?
Injury or stress on the TMJ, or joints that aid in biting and chewing, cause bite problems. If you have injured your jaw or are under stress, you are more likely to develop TMD. Patients with crooked or misaligned teeth are also more likely to develop TMJ disorders because of their uneven bite.
How do dental bridges compare to partial dentures?
Dental bridges are used to restore multiple consecutive missing teeth. Partial dentures can also replace rows of missing teeth. The difference between bridges and partial dentures is that partials can replace multiple rows of lost teeth in the mouth.
Are bleeding gums an indicator of gum disease?
If you brush your teeth too aggressively, your gums may bleed every time you brush. However, bleeding gums may also be a sign of gingivitis, also known as gum inflammation. Gingivitis is a predecessor to gum disease and is marked by red, swollen, and bleeding gums. We can reverse gingivitis and prevent gum disease with routine dental cleanings.
