Restorative Dentistry in Clarkston, Michigan

Restorative Dentistry in Clarkston, MI

Clarkston Dental Care offers many restorative dental treatments to help patients restore their smiles. To determine the appropriate treatment, a dentist will examine your teeth, gums, and bite. Then they will suggest a personalized dental care plan that fits within your budget and helps you meet your needs and goals. We offer the range of restorative dentistry treatments to renew the full function and health of your smile including:

Dental Bridge

A dental bridge replaces one to four missing teeth on the top or bottom arch. It is a fixed dental restoration that traditionally use natural teeth for support. These teeth must be permanently reduced in size to accommodate the prosthesis. However, we can also use tow or more dental implants to secure a dental bridge in place. Implant-supported dental bridges do not need any support from adjacent teeth. To learn more about the dental bridge process, see Dental Bridge.

Tooth Crowns

A dental crown is a porcelain ceramic cap that will that fully encase a single tooth. The purpose of a tooth crown is to give the tooth added strength and protection from further damage. It will also make the tooth more aesthetically pleasing. Your dentist will suggest a dental crown when a tooth suffers from severe decay, damage, or infection. We may also recommend dental crowns for patients after root canals. To learn more about the dental crown process, see Dental Crown.

Dental Implants

Implants are an effective, modern restorative treatment that can replace missing teeth. Dental implants can help restore a single missing tooth, several missing teeth, or a whole arch of missing teeth. An implant fixture is made from titanium, a biocompatible material that will fuse with human bone. Teeth implants are surgically placed in the jawbone where they will fuse to the bone and create a stable foundation to support dental restorations. Depending on how many teeth you have, your dental implants will support a dental crown, dental bridge, or denture. To learn more about your dental implant options, see Dental Implants.

Dentures & Partials

Full dentures are designed to replace a whole arch of missing teeth while partial dentures replace multiple missing teeth on the arch. These are removable dental restorations that help restore some chewing function, speech, aesthetics, and will help keep remaining from shifting. Dentures are false teeth that are fused to a framework made of metal and acrylic. They remain in place by clasping onto remaining teeth or by way of suction. Sometimes denture adhesive is needed. To learn more about denture making process, see Dentures and Partials.

Periodontal Disease Treatment

Gum disease may be a common dental problem, but it can be highly damaging to the smile. It is caused by a lack of proper oral hygiene. When bacteria is removed from your mouth daily, it creates inflammation and infections in your gums. Without prompt treatment, this disease will progress and lead to permanent damage. Over time, gum recession and tooth loss are inevitable. We offer periodontal therapy to remove decay-causing bacteria and restore the gums. To learn more about our gum disease treatments, see Periodontal Disease Treatment.

TMJ Treatment

Injuries or stress to the temporomandibular joints, which connect the skull to the jawbone, cause TMD. Temporomandibular joint disorders are highly painful and uncomfortable for patients. Many patients with TMD clench and grind their teeth unconsciously. Wearing a custom nightguard protects teeth and alleviates pressure on the jaw joints and muscles. Our TMJ treatment can also help stop further wear to the teeth and jaw. To learn more about the signs and symptoms of TMJ disorders, see TMJ Treatment

Restorative Dental FAQs

Read answers to these commonly asked questions to learn more about your restorative dental options. If you have more questions or concerns, please contact us during regular business hours. You can also schedule a consultation.

Do I have gum disease if my gums bleed when I brush and floss?

Many patients who experience bleeding when brushing or flossing may brush too aggressively. Additionally, patients with bleeding gums may have gum inflammation. Also known as gingivitis, gum inflammation is a precursor to gum disease.

However, we can easily reverse gingivitis with routine dental cleanings and a good oral hygiene routine. Call our office for a routine appointment, and we can determine if you need a cleaning or additional treatment.

Can I receive implants if I already have a bridge or denture?

We can help you plan your implant treatment if you want to secure your existing dental bridge or denture. Our team can also create new restorations as needed if you have a broken or old restoration. Dental implants increase the longevity of dental restorations and ensure a stable, functional bite.

How do I know if I have a TMJ disorder?

Common signs of TMJ disorders include jaw or tooth pain, bruxism, and chronic headaches. In addition, patients with TMD may experience pain or difficulty chewing. Sometimes, patients may find it painful to eat hard or crunchy foods. You may have a TMJ disorder if your jaw clicks or pops when eating. Schedule a routine visit, and we will examine your smile.
