Reconstructive & Restorative
A Smile Restored To Full Functionality
We offer many restorative dentistry solutions in the construction of new teeth with a composite material, repairing or rebuilding bridges, or creating implants where teeth are missing. In some cases, reconstructive dentistry is necessary to support and prevent damage to teeth that are intact and properly functioning. Let us help you achieve the relief you need.
Reconstruction after Trauma
If you’ve experienced an accident or have a hereditary condition that presents problems with chewing or speaking, reconstructive dentistry can restore your teeth, gums and/or jaw. Among some of the available restorative dentistry solutions are implants, crowns, bridges, TMJ therapy, and reconstruction after trauma. In most cases, reconstructive dentistry is covered by insurance.
TYPES OF RECONSTRUCTIVE DENTISTRY
Bridges vs. Implants
Currently, Dental Implants are the newest innovation in tooth replacement options. At times when there is not enough bone for an implant, a bridge is a predictable solution. Long span bridges are not a good option when the bone is healthy enough to place a dental implant. Short span bridges are a good solution, but when it becomes a long span bridge, dental implants are the better choice. At times, implants are used in combination with bridges–this is called an implant-supported bridge.
