Restorative dentistry focuses on restoring the health and function of your teeth and gums. Our restorative procedures will help you support your long-term oral health. Our dentists will provide diagnosis, prevention advice, and treatment options for diseases and injuries to the mouth and teeth.

We will never recommend unnecessary procedures and always consult with patients before treatment begins for the best possible outcomes.

Dr. Chambers will first evaluate your oral health history and discuss your personal goals and budget with you. Then, she will create a custom plan of treatment that best suits all your dental needs. She may conduct preventative dental services before starting restorative procedures. She may also combine cosmetic dental services with your treatment for the best results.

Restoring oral health is important for not only your dental health but overall physical well-being. Keep in mind that having a comfortable and functional smile gives you the ability to eat and speak normally. So our dentists work with our patients to ensure that the dentistry they receive will meet their expectations.

Our restorative procedures that can fix, adjust, or replace your damaged teeth. Dr. Chambers provides the following restorative procedures, and can also combine dental treatment options for a full mouth reconstruction.

Dental Implants

Implants can replace severely damaged teeth, or teeth that are missing in crucial areas of your mouth. They are artificial replacement teeth that a dentist, periodontist, or oral surgeon places in the upper or lower jaw. They usually consist of titanium, a metal that is similar to bone.

Dental implants can replace a single tooth or many missing teeth. Our dentist can also use them to anchor dentures and prevent them from slipping. They can also support a dental bridge. To learn about how we can replace your missing teeth, visit Dental Implants.

Dental Crowns

You may commonly see a dentist use a dental crown to restore your bite function after a root canal. However, did you know that this dental restoration is great for cosmetic issues? For example, our dentist can cover deep stains that are not repairable with teeth whitening using crowns.

Tooth-colored dental crowns can also cover cosmetic issues better than composite resin or dental fillings. To learn about how we can strengthen your teeth, visit Dental Crowns.

TMJ Treatment

Temporomandibular joint disorder or TMD is a disorder that affects the temporomandibular joint, or TMJ. The temporomandibular joint is a hinge joint in the jaw that allows for movement. It connects the lower jaw to the skull and has three bones: The mandible and two temporal bones.

If you have a temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD), you are likely living with pain. Alleviate constant jaw pain, frequent headaches, and teeth grinding during sleep with TMJ treatment from Dr. Chambers. To learn about how we can help you alleviate your jaw pain, visit TMJ Treatment.

Periodontal Therapy

Periodontal therapy addresses gum disease at the source. Your dentist or periodontist can complete this type of therapy in two ways: nonsurgical and surgical. The nonsurgical treatment consists of scaling, root planing, and polishing.

This treatment can help to reduce inflammation and bacterial growth on the gum line. Scaling and root planing is the most common procedure to alleviate gum disease issues and significantly reduce symptoms. The surgical treatment includes removing diseased tissue from the bone or tissue surrounding it. To learn about how we can help you stop bleeding gums, visit Periodontal Therapy.

Dentures & Partial Dentures

Replace consecutive missing teeth, or a full row of teeth, with a removable denture. Full dentures come in a wide variety of materials and types.

The most common material for dentures is acrylic resin. Resin is a strong and flexible plastic that has a light color. We provide modern dentures, partial dentures, and implant-secured dentures. To learn about restoring your teeth, visit Dentures and Partials.

Dental Bridges

Close the gaps in your smile that missing teeth leave behind with a dental bridge. The dental bridge is an artificial replacement for a single missing tooth. For most bridges, the dentist removes one or more teeth and places two crowns on the remaining anchor teeth. To learn about how we can replace one or many teeth, visit Dental Bridge.

Restorative Care for A Long-Lasting Smile

Later in life, our gums may recede, exposing the root surfaces of our teeth. A number of factors can cause gum recession, including trauma, gum disease, vigorous brushing, and genetic predisposition.

Root exposure is problematic. This is because cementum covers root surfaces. Cementum is much softer than enamel and more susceptible to tooth decay.

For this reason, older patients must take special care to brush and floss daily. They should also visit their dentist regularly to ensure that root cavities do not occur. Regular dental visits are also important, as a prosthodontist can ensure a properly fitting denture.

Dentists can also examine the mouth for signs of periodontal disease and oral cancer. These problems are highly treatable when caught early. We understand that aesthetics are also important to our older adult patients. Our dental team can address both tooth damage and loss while improving the look of your smile.
