Dentist Milwaukie, OR
Restorative dentistry primarily focuses on your damaged or missing teeth. These procedures are adequate to enhance your oral health and also improve function. Some common dental restoration methods you can consider include bridges, implants, crowns, fillings, and more. If you have missing or damaged teeth or are suffering from tooth decay, ensure you visit our clinic at Milwaukie, OR. We will review your situation and offer restorative alternatives to improve your chewing function and oral health.
Dental fillings are a popular dental treatment method that helps to restore and repair your teeth. They mostly repair teeth that have decayed or have minor damage. We first remove the damaged or decayed part of your tooth and fill the remaining part with a dental filling material. The primary purpose of a filling is to restore the functionality of your teeth and prevent any further damage or decay.
Dental crowns are caps that act as a protective covering for your teeth. They help restore your damaged tooth, by repairing its look, size, strength, and shape. We customize these restorative options to mimic your other teeth in terms of shape and color hue.
We can recommend crowns if you have fractured teeth, tooth decay, or discolored teeth, among others. You can choose from multiple materials, such as metal, porcelain-fused-to-metal, ceramic, or porcelain crowns.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that we erect on your jawbone. It offers a durable solution; you can comfortably chew and grind food. We use a surgical process to ensure the implants attach securely to your jawbone. After implant placement, you can expect complete fusing and healing after several months. We then proceed to attach synthetic teeth, such as crowns or bridges, to function as your artificial teeth.
Dental bridges are popular and durable prosthetic devices that help to replace one or multiple missing teeth. They help to conceal or bridge empty spaces left behind by lost or missing teeth. A standard bridge has artificial teeth and crowns. The crowns work to anchor the new teeth into the right position.
A denture is a removable appliance that is usually used to replace one or more missing teeth. A partial denture usually attaches to the surrounding teeth with metal clasps. A complete denture consists of a flesh-colored acrylic base that supports a complete arch of prosthetic teeth. We offer custom-fit dentures as a more comfortable, functional, and durable solution.
An implant-supported denture is similar to All-on-4 but usually requires more implants. We may recommend an implant-supported denture if you want a better alternative to traditional dentures. A traditional denture is a removable appliance that rests on the gums. Because it is not secured by implants, many patients experience difficulty eating, discomfort, and even embarrassing slips.
Restorative dentistry helps to address common dental problems such as tooth fractures, loss, decay, or bite abnormalities. It helps prevent major oral health issues and restore the function of your damaged teeth. Some of the common options we have in our dental clinic at Anderson Family Dental are dental crowns, dental fillings, dental bridges, dental implants, dentures, and more.
