What is Restorative Dental Care?
Restorative dental care is any procedure aimed to restore the function and appearance of your smile.
Our dentists can help restore your smile – and your oral health – by repairing structural problems such as broken or missing teeth.
Depending on your issue, the dentists at HighGate Dental Clinic will determine the right restorative treatment option for you.
Dental crowns are porcelain caps placed on top of teeth to repair their function and appearance. Crowns are used to attach bridges, cover dental implants or prevent a cracked tooth from getting worse. They can also help to restore a discoloured or stained tooth.
Bridges are natural-looking tooth replacements that are bonded to existing teeth or dental implants to replace a section of missing teeth. As they are custom-made, bridges are barely noticeable and can restore the natural contour of upper and lower teeth.
At HighGate Dental Clinic, we use amalgam and composite (tooth-coloured) fillings to repair cavities and tooth damage. These fillings can withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing and can be used on front and back teeth.
Full & Partial Dentures
Dentures are artificial teeth used to replace one or several teeth in a row (partial dentures), or a whole jaw of missing teeth (full dentures). Dentures allow patients with missing teeth to maintain their facial structure, talk and eat properly.
A root canal is a procedure where the diseased blood vessels, nerves and tissues inside of a tooth are removed. By removing the decay and bacteria, your dentist can help stop the spread of infection and prevent the need for an extraction.
Periodontal (Gum) Therapy
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues of the mouth. If the disease is caught early, preventive therapy will be recommended. Otherwise, the dentists will work with you to administer a treatment plan based on the type and severity of the disease.
