Restore Your Smile!
Our Northeast Calgary general dentists offer a full range of restorative dental services including fillings, bridges, crowns, dentures, gum therapy, and TMJ treatment.
What is Restorative Dental Care?
Restorative dental care includes any procedure that aims to restore the normal function and appearance of your smile. By repairing structural problems such as damaged or missing teeth, our dentists can help restore your smile – and your oral health.
Depending on your issue, the dentists at Saddletowne Dental will determine the right restorative treatment option for you.
At Saddletowne Dental, we use composite (tooth-coloured) fillings to repair a cavity or tooth damage, like a crack. These fillings can withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing, and can be used on front and back teeth.
Bridges are natural-looking tooth replacements that are bonded to existing teeth or dental implants to replace a section of missing teeth. Because they are custom-made, bridges are barely noticeable and can restore the natural contour of teeth and the bite between upper and lower teeth.
Crowns are porcelain caps that are placed on top of teeth to restore their function and appearance. Crowns are used to attach bridges, cover dental implants or prevent a cracked tooth from worsening. They can also help to restore a discoloured or stained tooth to its natural appearance.
Dentures are artificial teeth used to replace one missing tooth or several in a row (partial dentures), or a whole jaw of missing teeth (full dentures). They allow patients with missing teeth to maintain their face structure, and talk and eat properly.
Periodontal (Gum) Therapy
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues of the mouth, including the gums, gingiva, alveolar bone, cementum, and periodontal ligament. If the disease is caught in the early stages, preventative therapy will be recommended. Otherwise treatment methods depend on the type and severity of the disease.
The temporomandibular joint (or TMJ) is a hinge that connects your jaw to the temporal bones of your skull. The disorder of this joint can cause a host of issues with your jaw and the muscles in your face, including painful symptoms. At Saddletowne Dental, our dentists can test for, diagnose and provide a treatment plan for TMJ disorder.
