Repair Structural Issues
Restorative dental care is any procedure that aims to restore the appearance and function of your smile.
By repairing structural problems such as damaged or missing teeth, our dentist can help restore your smile – and your oral health.
When you consult with one of our dentist at Fort Garry Dental Centre, they will determine the right restorative treatment option for you.
Crowns are porcelain caps that are placed on top of teeth to restore their function and appearance. These are used to attach bridges, cover dental implants or prevent a cracked tooth from getting worse. Crowns can also restore discoloured or stained teeth to their natural appearance.
Bridges are natural-looking tooth replacements that are bonded to existing teeth or dental implants to replace a section of missing teeth. Because they are custom-made, bridges are barely noticeable and can restore the natural contour of teeth and the bite between the upper and lower teeth.
At Fort Garry Dental Centre, we use composite (tooth-coloured) fillings to repair a cavity or tooth damage, like a crack. These fillings can withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing.
Inlays & Onlays
Inlays and onlays are tooth-coloured porcelain fillings used to repair cavities when the damage is too extensive for a standard dental filling. They are custom-made and are permanently cemented to the tooth as a single piece.
Full & Partial Dentures
Dentures are artificial teeth used to replace one missing tooth or several in a row (partial dentures), or a whole jaw of missing teeth. They allow patients with missing teeth to maintain their facial structure, and talk and eat properly.
Periodontal (Gum) Therapy
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues of the mouth. If the disease is caught in the early stages, preventive therapy will be recommended. Other treatment methods depend on the type and severity of the disease.
A root canal is a procedure where your dentist removes diseased blood vessels, nerves and tissues from the interior of a tooth. By removing the decay and bacteria, your dentist can help halt the spread of infection. This procedure can help relieve your symptoms and save your natural tooth.
TMJ Disorder Treatment
The temporomandibular joint (or TMJ) is a hinge that connects your jaw to the temporal bones of your skull. The disorder of this joint can cause a host of issues with your jaw and the muscles in your face, including painful symptoms. Our dentist can test for, diagnose and provide a treatment plan for TMJ Disorder.
