Repairing your smile doesn’t need to be a stressful or confusing experience. Our Orland Park dentists are of the opinion that suffering from dental damage is already stressful enough; we’re here to provide you with the care you need, in a relaxed and supportive environment. Keep reading to learn more about the technologies and treatments our team uses to help rebuild smiles.
Obviously, the treatments you use will depend on the type and severity of damage you’re dealing with. When you come in for an assessment, our team will be able to give you a better idea of how you can move forward with treatment. Using intra-oral cameras and digital X-Rays we’re able to get clear idea of the underlying oral health problems that need to be addressed.
If you’re dealing with relatively minor or contained dental damage, we may be able to restore your tooth with a simple filling. In cases of severe dental damage—that is, damage that extends into the core of the tooth—a root canal may become necessary. Root canal therapy allows our team to clear away the tissues and nerves at the dental core. Then, we are able to clean the remaining healthy tooth structure, and restore the tooth with a crown.
When untreated dental damage has led to tooth loss, our dental team is able to rebuild and restore smiles with state-of-the-art tooth replacement treatments. Dental implants, for example, are individual replacement teeth that are permanently grounded in a patient’s jawbone tissue with titanium screws. Our team can also use titanium implant roots to secure larger prostheses, like dentures. Thanks to dental implant technology, patients now have more restorative options than ever before.
If you’re dealing with dental damage, the best thing that you can do is to reach out to your dental team for an assessment and treatment. Remember, when dental damage persists unchecked, it will only intensify, and potentially spread to other areas of your mouth. You can always give our Orland Park dentists a call to learn more and to get started!
