Restorative Dentistry

Dental Bridge

A bridge structure is one or more artificial teeth anchored in place by natural teeth, crowns, or implants on each side of the bridge. Using a bridge to fill the gap from missing teeth helps restore proper bite and prevent teeth from shifting to fill the gap (which may lead to additional bite and jaw joint issues). Bridges can be constructed from gold, porcelain and metal, or all ceramic. Ceramic bridge color is made to match your natural tooth color. Material choice will depend on structural requirements, wear and aesthetics. Dental Bridges are used to:
•  Replace missing teeth
•  Prevent teeth from shifting
•  Correct bite issues due to missing teeth
•  Help prevent jaw joint problems from altered bite
•  Improve appearance (cosmetic reasons)

Dental Crowns

After the tooth surface is cleaned and prepared the crown is placed to cover the remainder of the tooth. The crown strengthens the tooth structure and helps prevent future decay. Crowns also improve the tooth's look, shape and alignment. Dental Crowns are used to:
•  Restore a fractured tooth
•  Restore a tooth severely damaged by decay
•  Protect a tooth from fracture
•  Cover a discolored or unattractive tooth
•  Cover a dental implant
•  Anchor a bridge

Dental Implant

An implant is a metal post that is attached directly to the jawbone. After the bone and surrounding tissue have healed, an artificial tooth is attached to the implant. Dental Implants in West Palm Beach provide superior benefits compared to bridge work, because they do not depend on neighboring teeth for structural support.Implants are the closest dental structure in durability to natural teeth and have greater cosmetic appeal. Tooth Implants in Jupiter, FL are used to:
•  Replace missing teeth
•  Prevent teeth from shifting
•  Correct bite issues due to missing teeth
•  Help prevent jaw joint problems from altered bite
•  Improve appearance (cosmetic reasons)

Fillings

After removing the decay and cleaning the area the dentist adds filling material. Fillings are made from traditional amalgam (silver colored) gold, silver, or a composite (tooth colored).

Composite fillings, in addition to being more aesthetically pleasing, bond directly to the tooth surface, unlike traditional fillings.


Root Canal

Once the pulp is infected it cannot heal on its own. Sometimes tooth trauma such as a fracture can lead to the need for a root canal as well. In addition to being painful, untreated infections can reach the root tip and compromise the entire immune system. Symptoms of pulp infections may be:
•  Sensitivity to hot/cold
•  Sensitivity to sweets
•  Pain, especially when biting
•  Swelling
•  Bad taste in the mouth

A root canal procedure includes cleaning out the infected pulp, disinfecting the canals and filling the void with a rubber like substance to prevent further infection. Sometimes a crown is recommended to restore the tooth's shape, look, and to strengthen the tooth's structure.
