Restorative Dentistry in Chenango Bridge
Although many have a goal to maintain a healthy and functional smile for a lifetime, some aren’t so fortunate. Age, tooth decay, heredity, and overall poor oral hygiene can lead to one or more teeth weakening significantly or failing altogether. Without addressing these symptoms, you risk further harm to the rest of your teeth and gums.
When your teeth are damaged, our team at Chenango Bridge Dental offers a variety of quality restorative services and prosthetic devices to improve function and appearance. If your oral health has been causing you concern, Dr. Stanley Romanowski can help, as we are your one-stop shop for renewing your smile.
Identifying the Appropriate Treatment Path
When visiting our office with significant dental concerns, Dr. Romanowski first takes the time to get to know you and your goals for improving your smile. Next, we conduct a thorough evaluation of your teeth and surrounding structures so we can address your issues with an effective treatment plan.
If we detect a minor cavity, we perform the simple process of cleaning out the decay and filling the tooth with composite resin. If decay has advanced to the inner portion of the tooth, we’ll recommend root canal therapy to alleviate the issue. When complications progress to the point where the tooth cannot be saved, we can schedule you an appointment to have it removed.
What is a Dental Restoration?
When patients receive root canal therapy or lose a tooth, a custom-crafted prosthetic is provided to renew uniformity and function. Restorative options such as crowns, bridges, and dentures improve the function of your teeth so that you can eat, speak, and perform daily brushing and flossing without any issues.
Porcelain crowns are effective in protecting a treated tooth and enhancing function and aesthetics. This restoration can also be affixed to a dental implant for single tooth replacement. Other options such as dentures, partials, and bridges completely replace missing teeth to recreate a streamlined smile. Each of these choices can be supported by dental implants as well.
Dental implants are a comprehensive smile improvement option, as they are effective in replacing the entire tooth, from root to crown. A titanium post is placed beneath the gums and fuses with the surrounding bone to provide a secure base to affix a prosthetic. While we work with a trusted specialist to place the implant posts, once the treatment site has time to heal, Dr. Romanowski will secure the custom-crafted restoration to complete the procedure.
