Restorative Dental Care in Windsor: What is it?
Restorative dental care includes any procedure or service which is meant to restore the regular function and appearance of your smile.
Restorative procedures focus on repairing structural issues including damaged or missing teeth. Through this care, our dentists may be able to restore your smile – and your oral health.
Depending on your issue, the dentists at Eastside Dental will determine the appropriate restorative treatment option for you.
Dental Crowns in Windsor
Dental crowns are porcelain caps that are placed on top of teeth to help restore their function and appearance. Crowns are used to attach bridges, cover dental implants or prevent a cracked tooth from worsening. Crowns can also be used to help to restore the natural appearance of a discoloured or stained tooth.
Dental Bridges in Windsor
Bridges are used to replace a section of missing teeth with natural-looking tooth replacements that are bonded to existing teeth or dental implants. Because these dental bridges are custom-made, they are barely noticeable and restore the natural contour of teeth and the bite between upper and lower teeth.
Dental Fillings in Windsor
At Eastside Dental, we have the ability to use composite (tooth-coloured) fillings to repair a cavity or any other tooth damage, such as a crack. These fillings can bear moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing and can be used on both the front and back teeth.
Full & Partial Dentures in Windsor
Dentures are artificial teeth that can be used to replace either one missing tooth, several in a row (partial dentures), or even a whole jaw of missing teeth (full dentures). Dentures allow patients with missing teeth to maintain their facial structure and talk and eat properly.
Periodontal (Gum) Therapy in Windsor
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues of the mouth, including the gums, gingiva, alveolar bone, cementum, and periodontal ligament. If signs of gum disease are observed in the early stages, preventive therapy will be recommended. Otherwise, treatment methods will depend on the type and severity of the disease.
Root Canals in Windsor
A root canal is a procedure where your dentist removes diseased blood vessels, nerves, and tissues from the interior of a tooth. Using this procedure to remove any decay and bacteria, your dentist can help halt the spread of infection and prevent the possible need for an extraction.
TMJ Disorder Treatment in Windsor
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 be caused by issues such as misalignment of the teeth or jaw, airway issues, or trauma. TMJ can cause a host of issues with your jaw and the muscles in your face, including painful symptoms that could worsen with stress. Our dentists are able to test for, diagnose and provide a treatment plan for TMJ Disorder.
Inlays/Onlays in Windsor
Inlays and onlays are indirect dental fillings that are custom made outside of the mouth and then permanently cemented to the tooth to fill a cavity, generally on a molar or premolar.
Inlays fill the space in between the cusps at the centre of the tooth, while onlays cover one or more cusps or the entire surface of the tooth and are an ideal alternative to dental fillings when too much tooth enamel has been lost.
