Restorative Dentistry at Madison Ave Dental
Restorative dentistry consists of many dental procedures that will restore your smile after a dental issue has occurred. For our patients of Greenwood, Indiana, we offer the best restorative procedures available by using state-of-the-art dental techniques and technology.
We are very passionate about oral health and oral hygiene in our office, and we do all that we can to help our patients prevent dental issues. Even with consistent brushing and flossing, decay can still occur. Below is a list of some of our restorative procedures that will restore your tooth after minor or major decay.
For minor to moderate cavities, our dental professionals suggest a filling. In this treatment, the cavity is diagnosed and then removed from the enamel using a dental drill. Once decay has been completely removed and the tooth has been cleaned and disinfected, a tooth-colored composite resin will be used to fill the hole. Fillings are strong, artificial replacements for your teeth enamel that are resistant to future decay.
For major cavities that have infected the majority of the outer surface of the tooth and have been removed, we recommend a customized dental crown. The crown is placed onto the top visible portion of your tooth. Each dental crown is made out of strong porcelain, and is custom made to match your natural teeth.
Dental Implants serve as both a cosmetic and a restorative procedure. If a tooth has a severe infection and needs to be pulled or if a tooth has been lost, the best restoration method is to have it replaced with a dental implant. Dental implants are made out of two parts; the implant and the artificial tooth crown. After surgically placing the implant into the jaw bone and allowing it to heal, your personalized dental crown will be permanently secured to the implant.
Periodontal Disease Treatment
Periodontal or gum disease is very dangerous and can cause gum tissue loss, jaw bone decay, and even tooth loss. If gum disease is not taken care of immediately, the disease can spread and cause other major health problems. Periodontal disease can be recognized by constant swelling and bleeding of gum tissues. If this is occurring to you, please make an appointment to see us at your earliest convenience.
Most restorative treatments will be designated or offered once our dental professionals have diagnosed you with a dental problem that needs treatment. Our team at Madison Ave Dental wants our patients to be educated on the different options available to them so that when the time comes, the best decision can be made.
