1. Dental Fillings: Repairing Tooth Decay and Damage

One of the most common restorative dentistry treatments at Dental House MI is dental fillings. Fillings are used to repair teeth affected by decay (cavities) or damage, such as chips or fractures. They help restore the tooth's function, strength, and appearance while preventing further decay and complications.

There are several types of dental fillings to choose from, including:

- Amalgam fillings: A mixture of metals (silver, tin, copper, and mercury) that provide a durable, affordable option, particularly for molars.

- Composite fillings: Tooth-colored resin material that is popular for its natural appearance and ability to bond directly to the tooth structure, providing additional support.

The procedure typically involves the dentist removing the decayed or damaged portions of the tooth, cleaning the remaining tooth structure, and placing the chosen filling material. After shaping and polishing the filling, your tooth is restored to its normal function and aesthetics.

2. Dental Crowns: Reinforcing and Protecting Weak or Damaged Teeth

As discussed in the previous article, dental crowns are tooth-shaped coverings used to restore the strength, function, and appearance of a damaged or weakened tooth. They provide long-lasting protection and support, preventing further damage or tooth loss. Dental crowns are often used in conjunction with other restorative procedures, such as root canal therapy or dental implants.

Dental crowns can be made from a variety of materials, including porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-metal, ceramic, and zirconia, each offering unique benefits in terms of aesthetics, durability, and cost.

3. Dental Bridges: Replacing Missing Teeth and Restoring Function

Dental bridges are a restorative dentistry solution for patients who are missing one or more teeth. They consist of one or more artificial teeth – known as pontics – which are anchored in place by dental crowns attached to adjacent healthy teeth or dental implants. Dental bridges not only restore the function and appearance of your smile, but they also help prevent shifting of neighboring teeth, bite misalignment, and bone loss associated with tooth loss.

The process for obtaining a dental bridge at Dental House MI typically involves the following steps:

- Initial consultation and evaluation

- Tooth preparation, impressions, and temporary bridge placement

- Custom bridge fabrication in a dental laboratory

- Bridge fitting, adjustment, and permanent placement

4. Root Canal Therapy: Saving Infected or Damaged Teeth

Root canal therapy is a restorative procedure designed to save a tooth with infected or inflamed pulp. The tooth's pulp is the soft tissue inside the root canal, containing nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue. When the pulp becomes infected, it can cause severe pain and eventually lead to tooth loss if left untreated.

The root canal procedure at Dental House MI involves the following steps:

- The dentist begins by numbing the tooth and placing a protective rubber dam to isolate it.

- A small access hole is made in the tooth to reach the infected pulp, which is then carefully removed.

- The root canals are cleaned, disinfected, and shaped, followed by the placement of a filling material (usually gutta-percha) to seal the canals.

- A temporary filling is placed to close the access hole, and a dental crown or other restoration is often recommended to protect and reinforce the tooth in the long term.

5. Dental Implants: A Comprehensive Solution for Tooth Loss

Dental implants offer a permanent and versatile solution for replacing missing teeth, providing exceptional stability, function, and aesthetics compared to traditional tooth replacement options. Dental implants consist of a titanium post that is surgically placed into the jawbone, a custom-made artificial tooth (crown, bridge, or denture), and a connector called an abutment that fastens the crowns to the implant.

The dental implant process at Dental House MI typically involves several visits over a few months, including:

- Consultation, evaluation, and personalized treatment planning

- Surgical placement of the dental implant into the jawbone

- A healing period (osseointegration) where the implants become integrated with the bone

- Placement of the abutment and final restoration (crown, bridge, or denture)

Through these varied restorative dentistry treatments, Dental House MI helps patients regain healthy, functional smiles tailored to their precise needs and preferences. By employing the latest advancements in technology and techniques, our skilled dental team provides comprehensive care dedicated to restoring the integrity, strength, and beauty of your smile.
