Do you have damaged or missing permanent teeth? Have you noticed bite or gum problems? Restorative dental care is an important part of our practice. At Enhanced Dental Care, our dentists collaborate with patients to repair, replace or improve the function of the smile.
Restorative dentistry can address complex dental problems including damaged teeth, missing teeth, and bite problems. Our team offers comprehensive dental examinations during routine care to look for the early signs of a dental problem that could affect the bite or the health of the teeth and gums. We work with patients to create personalized solutions that address the underlying cause of a dental health concern- the key to a lasting outcome.
Restorative Dentistry in Rehoboth Beach, DE
Our restorative dental treatments renew the health and function of the teeth and gums:
A dental bridge is a dental prosthetic that restores multiple consecutive missing teeth. Although traditional dental bridges rely on the support of adjacent natural teeth, implants offer more support. Dental implants make it easier to bite and chew comfortably.
Tooth crowns are porcelain ceramic caps that fully cover teeth. They may also cap off dental implants. We use porcelain ceramic crowns that cover stained teeth and provide strength to weakened teeth.
Dental implants are titanium screws that replace missing teeth at the socket. We can restore single missing teeth or secure a bridge or denture with dental implants. Because dental implants fuse with the bone tissue beneath the gums, they become a permanent part of the smile.
Full and Partial Dentures
We provide complete and partial dentures for patients with rows or arches of lost permanent teeth. Compared to removable dentures, implant-supported dentures do not require adhesive and do not come with dietary restrictions. Implant-secured dentures make it easier to eat and speak.
Our periodontal disease treatments remove harmful bacteria from the smile. We use scaling and root planing treatments together to clean the gums and tooth roots. We also use dental lasers to comfortably remove infected gum tissue from the smile.
We offer TMJ treatment to address temporomandibular joint disorders. TMD is caused by injury or pressure on the joints that aid in eating and speaking. Over time, the stress on these joints impacts the teeth. Patients with TMJ disorders can experience teeth clenching and grinding, jaw pain, and chronic headaches. Nightguards alleviate jaw and tooth pain. They also prevent further enamel wear.
Restorative Dental FAQs
Read answers to common questions about restorative dental care to learn more about symptoms and treatment options:
What are the early signs of gum disease?
If your gums bleed when you brush and floss, you may have gingivitis or gum inflammation. Early signs of periodontitis can include bleeding and swollen gums, red or purple-tinged gums, gum sensitivity, and gum tenderness. The good news is that these symptoms are easily reversible with a good oral hygiene routine and professional cleaning.
Can I receive dental implants for my dental bridge or denture?
Yes, if you already have a removable dental bridge or denture, we can provide you with the stability of dental implants. Our dentists will discuss your options with you during a consultation. If needed, we will perform bone grafting services to prepare for your implants.
How can I prevent tooth decay or gum disease?
The best way to prevent a dental infection is to have a solid oral hygiene routine. Brush and floss twice a day. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and brush for at least two minutes. Schedule regular dental appointments so we can professionally clean your smile. We provide scaling and root planing services to remove decay-causing bacteria buildup from and beneath the gums.
