Restorative Dentistry Horizon Family Dental Care

Restorative dental care revitalizes the function and health of the teeth and gums. At Horizon Family Dental Care, we help patients restore their smiles using a variety of methods. Our restorative dental services can replace missing teeth, treat gum disease, restore the temporomandibular joints, and address tooth damage and wear.

Revitalizing the smile can improve the oral health and overall health of patients. Problems like missing teeth and gum infections often impact other parts of the body. Missing teeth often lead to problems with speaking and eating, while gum disease can exacerbate heart problems. Addressing oral health issues with restorative care can enhance our patient’s quality of life.

Our restorative dentistry treatments can replace missing teeth, restore damaged and worn teeth, and stop infection. Learn more about each restorative option we provide to our patients below:

All On Four

All-On-Four treatment uses four or more dental implants to secure prosthetic teeth. They allow patients with healthy teeth and gums to receive tooth replacements immediately. Schedule a consultation with us so we can determine if you are a candidate for this restoration.

Dental Bridge

A dental bridge is a dental prosthetic that can either be fixed or removable. Dental bridges are best suited for patients who are missing multiple consecutive teeth. Traditional bridges are removable, but patients find it easier to use replacement teeth fixed in the mouth. We can secure dental bridges with dental implants.

Dental Crowns

Tooth crowns are caps of porcelain ceramic that cover single teeth. They can also cover dental implants or secure a bridge. Crowns brighten and strengthen worn, fractured, chipped, cracked, discolored, and otherwise damaged teeth.

Traditional dental crowns use metal materials. However, we use tooth-colored crowns that provide strength and blend in with other teeth in the mouth.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are one of the most versatile and effective options for patients with missing teeth. Implants replace teeth at the root with titanium posts. These posts are capped off by tooth crowns made of durable porcelain ceramic.

Dental implants are permanent restorations that can restore single or multiple missing teeth. Because implants act like replacement tooth roots, they will last forever.

Full and Partial Dentures

Dentures can restore rows and arches of missing teeth. Whether you require a partial denture or a full set of dentures, we can help. Although traditional dentures require adhesive to stay put, we can secure dentures with dental implants.

Implant-supported dentures make it easier and much more comfortable for patients to eat and speak. These dentures also ensure restorations last longer.

Gum Disease Treatment

Periodontitis, or gum disease, can create various oral health problems and increase a patient’s risk of heart issues. Signs of gum inflammation and disease often include bleeding gums, gum irritation, bad breath (halitosis), and gum recession. Antibacterial rinses, scaling, and root planing can fight off harmful bacteria that cause gum infections.

Restorative Dental FAQs

Want to know more about restorative dental care? Read answers to commonly asked questions about dental restorations here:

How long do dental implants last?

Dental implants are permanent restorations. This is because they are made of titanium and are inserted into the jawbone. During a process called osseointegration, dental implants fuse with the bone in the jaw to provide a stable restoration.

Am I a candidate for implants and implant restorations?

We can help you determine if single dental implants or implant-supported bridges or dentures are right for you. Most patients can receive implants and implant restorations after we ensure their teeth and gums are healthy and infection-free. We can also provide bone grafting services to help ensure that patients have enough bone to support implants.

What is a full mouth rehabilitation?

A full mouth reconstruction uses multiple restorative treatments to renew the form and function of your mouth. We recommend these treatments if you have damaged, infected, or missing teeth.

To begin this treatment process, you will visit us for a consultation. We will take X-rays of your mouth to determine which dental problems need treatment. Then, we will find the right treatments for you.

We may recommend dental implants, bridges, dentures, crowns, or gum disease treatment.
