Restorative Dentistry

What is restorative dentistry?

The dentists at Spillman Family Dental use restorative dentistry procedures to repair and protect your teeth, restoring proper function to your mouth. Your dentist may suggest a variety of treatments to fix your teeth, including single-tooth implants, dental bridges, onlays, and more, depending on your specific needs.

The dentists offer sedation dentistry services to help you stay calm and comfortable during your treatments. If you feel anxious about dental procedures, talk to your dentist about your concerns.

What procedures are done during a full-mouth restoration?

Dr. Spillman and Dr. Ryan start your treatment with a comprehensive exam and consultation in which they closely examine your teeth, take X-rays, and discuss your dental needs and treatment options with you.

Some of the most commonly used restorative procedures include:

  • Dental crown: a porcelain cap that covers your whole tooth to correct issues such as chips, cracks, and stains, as well as provides extra strength and support to the tooth
  • Dental bridge: a prosthetic device used to replace several adjacent missing teeth that is held in place by crowns on the natural teeth on either side of the gap or dental implants
  • Root canal: a dental procedure to remove decayed tissue from the pulpy interior of a tooth before filling it with a sterile material and sealing the opening
  • Crown after root canal: a porcelain cap placed to protect a tooth left weakened by severe interior decay and root canal procedures
  • Implant-retained crown: a prosthetic replacement for a single tooth consisting of a dental implant post, custom-made crown, and the abutment that attaches them

When is a full-mouth restoration needed?

Your dentist may suggest a full-mouth restoration if you have multiple missing, severely damaged, or decayed teeth. Some congenital issues such as overbites or underbites can also be repaired using a full-mouth restoration. Your dentist discusses your treatment options with you and answers your questions so you can make the best possible decisions regarding your dental care.
