Dakota Family Dentistry offers several types of restorative dentistry techniques and procedures to restore existing teeth that have become diseased or had dental trauma. Bridges, dental implants, dentures, fillings, and partials are some the procedures employed by Dakota Family Dentistry to restore teeth back to their optimal form and function.
Dental bridges are fixed dental restorations used to replace a missing tooth. This form of restorative dentistry permanently joins an artificial tooth to adjacent teeth or dental implants. Dental bridges are used to replace a tooth that has been lost due to trauma or oral disease.
Statistics show that 69% of adults between the ages of 35 and 44 years old have lost at least one permanent tooth to an accident, gum disease, or tooth decay. Dental implants are an option of restorative dentistry that Dakota Family Dentistry offers patients who have lost a tooth. Dental implants are long-term replacements that are surgically placed to your jawbone. Dental implants allow patients to regain the function and confidence of dependable teeth. Dental implants can also be used to retain or support dentures.
Dentures, or false teeth, are prosthetic devices constructed to replace missing teeth that have been lost due to trauma, tooth decay, or other oral diseases. Dentures are one restorative dentistry option that Dakota Family Dentistry offers patients. Dentures are supported by the surrounding soft and hard tissues of the mouth. Dentures can be offered as complete dentures replacing a full mouth’s teeth or as partial dentures. Partial dentures can work to replace a few teeth that have been lost instead of replacing all of a patient’s teeth.
To treat a cavity, our team at Dakota Family Dentistry will remove the diseased area of the tooth and use fillings to replace the area of the tooth that has been lost. Fillings can also be used to repair cracks or broken teeth that have been worn down. This type of restorative dentistry will withstand chewing and should last for many years without the need to be replaced.
