Even those patients who work diligently and consistently to maintain their smiles can experience dental damage from time to time. This can occur due to accident or trauma, or due to unrecognized infection that intensifies over time.
The good news is that our Tinley Park dentists offer restorative treatment options that will help you get your smile back on track. Keep reading to learn more about the treatments and technologies that we use.
Effective restorative care begins with a thorough oral health assessment. Dr. Zaibak uses state-of-the-art intra-oral cameras, as well digital X-Rays to get a clear idea of what’s happening with your smile. Both of these tools allow our team to see exactly where and how your smile is compromised. Once we have a clear idea of what’s happening with your oral health, we can craft a restorative treatment plan accordingly.
Patients with severely damaged teeth may need to undergo root canal therapy in order to save as much of the tooth as possible. During root canal treatment, our dentist goes into the inner layers of the tooth, and removes any damaged materials, tissues, and dental pulp. Once only healthy dental enamel and dentin remain, we clean the tooth and restore it.
Both those who have experienced a dental trauma, and those who are battling infection can benefit from customized crowns. These restorations are used to repair and rebuild teeth. Every crown that create is shaped, sized, and colored to suit the patient’s unique needs. Our crowns are totally metal-free, and designed to stand the tests of time.
Those patients suffering from tooth loss, have a number of tooth replacement treatments from which to choose. Dentures for example, are used to replace many consecutive missing teeth. Our team also offers individual dental implants; with this treatment, one implant replaces one missing tooth. The new tooth is actually embedded in the patient’s jawbone tissue with a small titanium screw. These titanium implant roots can also be used to secure larger prostheses, like dentures. When you meet with our dental team, we’ll talk about what kind of treatment will best meet your needs.
No matter what your unique situation, it is critical that you seek prompt treatment for dental damage, as untreated oral health issues can intensify and spread over time. Please contact our Orland Park dentists to learn more and to schedule a personal consultation!
