What are Dental Restorations?
Whether you’re looking to repair minor chips or are interested in restoring a full arch of missing teeth, we have the skill and equipment to renew your smile. Our restoration services include:
What are Some Benefits of Dental Restorations?
Dental restorations can be used to help restore, repair, and replace damaged or unhealthy teeth. When you receive the right restoration for you, three possible benefits include:
Long Lasting Health:
Repairing dental damage and replacing missing or severely infected teeth helps your gums stay healthy and improves your overall oral health.
Function with Less Discomfort:
A painful toothache, caused by an accident, gum disease, or infection can be debilitating, making speaking and chewing uncomfortable. Restoration treatments alleviate pain and allow for normal function.
Restorations can turn a dull, chipped, or crooked smile into a beaming grin you can show off with pride.
How Do I Find Out if I Need Dental Restorations?
In most cases, our dentist will be able to determine which restoration option is best for your smile’s needs with an examination, often involving digital x-rays being taken of your teeth and gums.
Contact our office if you suspect you have any damage regarding your teeth or gums, even if you’re unsure if you need care. Dr. Teimouri and her team take the time to listen to your concerns, answer any questions you may have and discuss with you recommend treatment options.
What If I Experience a Dental Emergency?
Dental pain and discomfort can be an early sign of cavities, decay, damage, and infection. Even if you have a slight toothache; it can be a symptom of a much larger problem. We may treat the issue with root canal therapy and finalize care with a filling, inlay, onlay, or crown. Dental emergencies can include:
Fractured or Broken Tooth – A broken, or severely damaged tooth can be the result of many situations, more commonly, accidents like falling and biting into something hard. Depending on the extent of damage, the condition is often treated with a crown.
Lost Filling or Crown – In some cases, your restorations may come loose because there is decay developing underneath. Deep decay may change the shape of your tooth. Usually, our dentist prepares the tooth to help the new crown or filling fit properly.
Knocked-Out or Lost Tooth – Contact our office promptly, if there is enough natural structure left, we may be able to re-insert the tooth into its socket and help keep it in place with a composite splint. If this is not an option, our dentist may perform a root canal or may recommend treatment with dental implants and a crown.
Abscess – Abscesses are often considered urgent when they occur. They typically involve pain and can lead to infection in other parts of the body if not addressed. Treatment can include root canal therapy or possible extraction, depending on the severity of the situation.
How Does Root Canal Therapy Work to Save My Tooth?
Root canal therapy is typically needed when the inner tissues of your tooth, known as the pulp, become infected. To help save as much of your natural tooth as possible, while preventing infection spreading to other teeth or throughout the body, our dentist removes the affected pulp carefully.
The cleaned and disinfected pulp chamber is sealed, and treatment is often finalized with a filling or crown. These restorations are designed to protect your treated tooth against further damage and possible re-infection.
Telltale Symptoms You May Need a Root Canal
A dull, persistent ache or sharp, debilitating pain are leading indicators that something is wrong with your tooth. We urge you to contact Bloom Dental as quickly as possible if you have difficulty carrying out ordinary activities such as drinking or eating without feeling pain.
Another common sign that a root canal may be needed is tooth sensitivity. When you drink warm beverages like coffee or tea, and your tooth aches, this is an issue. Other signs can involve swollen gums and discolored teeth.
Sometimes, no symptoms are indicating you need a root canal. Therefore, we highly recommend you stay diligent about your routine cleanings and exams every six months. The sooner we detect any causes for concern, the more likely we can treat problems effectively.
What are My Treatments Options After Dental Extraction?
Sometimes, when a tooth is affected by an accident, extensive decay, or gum disease, extraction may be necessary for improving oral health.
We suggest replacing the extracted tooth unless it was a third molar or wisdom tooth. The longer a gap from a lost tooth remains, the more likely neighboring teeth will begin to shift towards the area. This can lead to numerous dental and oral health complications.
Fortunately, at Bloom Dental, Dr. Teimouri provides many ways for replacing missing teeth, helping you chew and smile more confidently.
Fixed Bridges – With an artificial tooth anchored by two dental crowns, we can substitute a missing tooth. For improving aesthetics, we can match your dental bridge with your current teeth.
Partial Dentures – If multiple teeth are missing, a partial denture can be used to replace several teeth at once.
Full Dentures – If you’re facing extractions for the upper or lower arches of your smile, or missing all your teeth, a full denture can help restore a full smile. Today’s dentures are designed to fit comfortably while providing improved aesthetics.
Dental Implants – These titanium posts serve as artificial tooth roots in the places of missing teeth. Because they can fuse with living tissue and bone once surgically inserted into the jawbone, they help provide a secure anchor for attached crowns, bridges, dentures and partials.
Are Dental Implants Right for Me?
If you’ve lost one tooth or many, dental implants may be a good option to meet your needs. However, to effectively determine if they’re right for you, we recommend you call our office to schedule a consultation. Contributing factors such as your current oral health, lifestyle, and other personal factors should be considered as well.
Who is Eligible for Implants?
Our dentist will assess your dental structure as well as your jawbone when you come in for a consultation. Things like the location of the missing teeth, the number of missing teeth, and your general and dental health are all observed when planning dental implant treatment.
Being in good general health with enough jawbone strength and density to hold implants are the two most influential factors in determining if you’re eligible for dental implants.
Be sure to talk to your doctor as well as our dental team about your medical history and any medical conditions you have.
What Do I Do While Recovering from Dental Implant Placement?
Remember, like most surgeries, healing after dental implant placement takes time and patience. Our team will walk you through every aspect of the procedure, recovery time, and what to do during healing.
- We recommend having a trusted friend or family member take you to and from your appointment.
- Avoid rinsing, spitting, or touching the area, especially on the day of surgery.
- Any excessive bleeding can be controlled by biting on a clean gauze pad placed directly on the area for up to 30 minutes. If bleeding continues, please call us for further instructions.
- To help minimize swelling, apply an ice pack, as often as possible, for the first 36 hours.
- Be sure to take all prescribed antibiotics and medications as directed to help prevent infection and pain. Discontinue antibiotic use in the event of a rash or other unfavorable reaction and call our office.
Foods Recommended After Dental Surgery:
- Oatmeal or Cream of Wheat
- Soft Boiled or Scrambled Eggs
- Broiled Fish or Stewed Chicken
- Potatoes – Baked or Mashed
- Softly-cooked Vegetables
Typically, it can take several weeks for your implants to heal completely. Once your chosen restoration is attached, you should take care of it as you would a healthy, natural tooth. Brush twice per day and floss regularly, and don’t forget to visit us regularly for checkups. If you take good care of your smile, dental implants can last a lifetime.
