What is Restorative Dental Care?
With restorative dental care, our goal is to restore the normal function and appearance of your smile.
By fixing structural issues such as damaged or missing teeth, our dentists can help restore your smile, along with your oral health.
Depending on the nature of your issue, our dentists at Dr. James Gallant Dentistry will identify the right restorative treatment option for you.
Dental Crowns in Pembroke
These porcelain caps are placed on top of teeth to prevent a cracked tooth from worsening, attach bridges or cover dental implants. Crowns can restore the appearance and function of a stained, discoloured or damaged tooth. This restoration can also be used to restore a tooth after another dental procedure such as a root canal.
Dental Bridges in Pembroke
Bridges are custom-made, natural-looking tooth replacements that are bonded to dental implants or existing teeth to replace a section of missing teeth. These restorations are barely noticeable and can restore the natural contour of teeth, in addition to the bite between upper and lower teeth.
Dental Fillings in Pembroke
Dentists at Dr. James Gallant Dentistry repair cavities and tooth damage such as cracks with composite (tooth-coloured) fillings that can withstand moderate pressure from the continual stress of chewing. They can be used on front or back teeth.
Full & Partial Dentures in Pembroke
Dentures allow patients with missing teeth to maintain their facial structure, and to speak and chew properly. These artificial teeth can replace one missing tooth or several in a row (partial dentures) or an entire jaw of missing teeth (full dentures).
Inlays & Onlays in Pembroke
When damage is too extensive to use a standard dental filling, porcelain inlays and onlays can be custom-made in a dental laboratory, then permanently cemented to the tooth as a single piece. Inlays are used to repair cavities in the pits or fissures of a tooth, while onlays repair damage to the cusps.
Root Canals in Pembroke
Diseased nerves, blood vessels and tissues should be removed from the interior of a tooth. The dentist will perform a root canal to remove bacteria and decay, stopping infection from spreading and preventing the need for an extraction, along with further damage to oral health.
Periodontal (Gum) Therapy in Pembroke
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues of the mouth, including the gums, gingiva, alveolar bone, cementum, and periodontal ligament. If the disease is caught in the early stages, preventive therapy will be recommended. Otherwise, treatment methods will depend on the type and severity of the disease.
TMJ Disorder Treatment in Pembroke
The temporomandibular joint (or TMJ) is a hinge that connects your jaw to the temporal bones of your skull. The disorder of this joint can cause a host of issues with your jaw and the muscles in your face, including painful symptoms. Our dentists can test for, diagnose and provide a treatment plan for TMJ Disorder.
Same-Day Restorations in Pembroke
Using CEREC® technology, our dentists can create and place porcelain crowns, inlays and onlays in a single dental appointment to help restore your smile. No impressions, no temporaries - just tooth-coloured, metal-free restorations in one visit.
