Restorative Dental Services
At Sudbury Dental Group, we offer a range of restorative dental services for patients to restore the normal function and appearance of their smile.
What is Restorative Dental Care?
Any procedure that aims to restore the normal appearance and function of your smile is known as restorative dental care.
By fixing structural problems such as missing, damaged or broken teeth, our dentists can help restore your smile - and your overall oral health.
Depending on your issue, the dentists at Sudbury Dental Group will recommend the right restorative treatment option for you.
Crowns are placed on top of teeth to restore their appearance and function. These porcelain caps can be used to prevent a fractured tooth from further deteriorating, cover dental implants, or attach bridges. They can also help to restore a stained or discoloured tooth to its natural appearance.
Bridges are bonded to dental implants or existing teeth to replace a section of missing teeth. As they are custom-made, these natural-looking tooth replacements are hardly noticeable and can restore the natural contour of a patient's tooth and the bite between the upper and lower teeth.
At Sudbury Dental Group, composite tooth-coloured fillings are used to fix cavities and damage to teeth, such as cracks. The fillings can withstand moderate pressure due to the continual stress of chewing and can be placed on both front and back teeth.
Full & Partial Dentures
Dentures are also known as false teeth or artificial teeth. They are used to replace one missing tooth or several consecutive teeth (partial dentures) or an entire jaw of missing teeth (full dentures). Dentures allow patients with missing teeth to talk and eat properly.
Inlays & Onlays
Inlays and onlays repair cavities where damage is too extensive for a standard dental filling. these tooth-coloured porcelain fillings are custom-made in a dental laboratory, then permanently attached to the tooth as a single piece.
During a root canal, your dentist removes infected blood vessels, tissues and nerves from the inside of a tooth. By removing the bacteria, decay, and disease, your dentist helps stop the infection from spreading and prevents the need for extraction later.
Periodontal (Gum) Therapy
Gum disease infects the mouth, including the gingiva, gums, cementum, alveolar bone, and periodontal ligament. If this disease is detected in its early stages, your dentist will recommend preventive therapy. Otherwise, treatment methods will depend on the severity and type of disease. Treatments may include localized medication, scaling, root planing and more.
TMJ Disorder Treatment
The temporomandibular joint (or TMJ) is a hinge that joins the temporal bones of your skull to your jaw. It allows you to move your jaw up and down and side to side so you can speak and eat correctly. The disorder of this joint can cause several issues with your facial muscles and jaw, including painful symptoms. Your dentist can test for, diagnose and create a treatment plan for TMJ Disorder to alleviate symptoms.
Silver Diamine Fluoride
Silver Diamine Fluoride (SDF) is a liquid substance that your dentist applies to your teeth to help prevent tooth cavities and keep them from spreading or growing to other adjacent teeth. SDF helps kill bacteria and allows your teeth to rebuild minerals. Your dentist can apply the liquid within one minute and no special equipment is required.
Dental veneers are wafer-thin shells of tooth-coloured porcelain that are cemented to the front surfaces of teeth to help improve the cosmetic appearance of your smile. Veneers can help resolve a variety of dental issues, including worn or discoloured teeth. They can also conceal chips, stains, and cracks.
