Restorative Dentistry Frequently Asked Questions
Our restorative dentistry services offer you plenty of options in renewing and improving your smile. As your trusted dentist in Laurel, MD, we look forward to going over all of your restorative dentistry options with you more in-depth at your next appointment. Here are some common questions that we receive regarding our restorative dentistry services:
What are my options for tooth replacement?
You have several options for replacing a missing tooth. Our office offers dental implants for patients looking to restore the look, feel, and function of their natural tooth. Additionally, we can provide you with dental bridges that allow for your surrounding teeth to hold a prosthetic tooth in the empty space.
What can be done about my consistent jaw pain?
You should tell your dentist about any ongoing jaw pain you are experiencing outside of our office. This could be a sign of an issue with the temporomandibular joint of your jaw. Our dentist can provide you with several treatment options to potentially alleviate this pain, including TMJ treatment, orthodontics to correct your bite, or a nightguard to correct your jaw’s natural resting position.
Should I still see a dentist if I am missing all of my teeth?
Yes, you should still see a dentist if you are missing all of your teeth. For patients looking to replace their teeth, dentures and partials are a good option for restoring your entire smile. Our office is happy to provide custom-fit dentures and partials. Additionally, you should continue to see a dentist regularly so that we can keep an eye on your gum health. If your gums become infected, you may need periodontal therapy to restore the health of your gums.
How can I restore a damaged, chipped tooth?
Dental crowns are a great way to restore a damaged or chipped tooth. Unlike a dental implant, dental crowns allow you to keep the foundation of your tooth underneath the crown. The crown is placed on top of the etched down version of your tooth to completely renew the look of your tooth. This also helps restore the function of the tooth and can help improve your chewing or speaking patterns without requiring tooth extraction.
