The Many Benefits of Restorative Dentistry
Research shows that your oral health has a major influence on overall health. By restoring your oral health to an optimal level, we can reduce your risk for physical conditions such as heart disease and diabetes. Meanwhile, you can benefit from improved nutrition when you are able to efficiently chew a variety of foods.
With a fully restored smile, you can experience improved health and boosted confidence.
Restorative dentistry can also help you to speak more clearly since compromised teeth - especially anterior teeth - can make it difficult to enunciate. Dr. Mitchmore will also ensure your restored smile is aesthetically pleasing. He uses high-quality, natural-looking materials to give you a beautiful, yet functional, smile.
Restorative Dentistry Procedure at LifeSmiles
Dr. Mitchmore offers different types of dental implants to meet patients’ varied needs. Traditional dental implants require multiple visits and procedures, with a long healing period. With All-on-4® implants, he can place and load your implants in just one procedure, though this type of implant may not be the best recommendation for all patients. The type of implants he recommends will depend on a variety of factors, including the health of your jawbone and the state of your oral health. Dr. Mitchmore administers IV sedation for dental implant procedures to minimize patient anxiety and discomfort. This also allows him to provide more efficient treatment.
Crowns and Bridges
Dental crowns are reinforcing caps placed over teeth that have suffered structural damage as a result of trauma or decay. A dental bridge fills the gap left by one or more consecutive missing teeth. Traditional bridges are secured with crowns placed over the adjacent healthy teeth, but Dr. Mitchmore can also place implant-supported crowns and bridges. Dr. Mitchmore can design a dental crown or bridge that will blend seamlessly with your smile. These restorations are crafted in a top-of-the-line dental lab using the highest quality materials, such as Prettau® zirconia.
With multiple denture options, Dr. Mitchmore can help you find the restoration method that suits your needs. He offers traditional dentures, which are held in place with natural suction and dental adhesive, as well as implant-supported dentures. Dentures supported by dental implants offer greater stability while preventing changes in the shape of the jawbone.
Inlays and Onlays
A tooth with decay that is too severe for a filling, but does not require a crown, can be repaired with an inlay or onlay. Inlays are used to repair the chewing surfaces of the teeth while onlays repair the chewing surfaces and the cusps of the teeth. These custom-designed restorations fit precisely into your tooth like a missing puzzle piece.
Dental fillings are a conservative treatment option for teeth that have suffered only minor damage from decay. Dr. Mitchmore uses composite resin, a tooth-colored material, to give you a totally natural-looking restoration.
Full Mouth Reconstruction
Patients suffering from multiple oral health complications may require a full mouth reconstruction. Dr. Mitchmore can design a customized treatment plan that includes any restorative procedures to fully repair your smile.
