With proper maintenance and care, your smile can last a lifetime. However, standard complications in oral health attributed to age or dental trauma can negatively affect the function and appearance of your teeth. Call our practice in Dover, DE, and schedule a consultation with Dr. B. James Rogge to find out which restorative treatments may be needed for you, or a member of your family.
Caring for Your Smile’s Beauty and Health
Restorative care aims to improve oral health and help maintain a healthy smile. Restorative services we offer at our practice include:
Crowns restore the structure of a tooth broken due to decay or damage. Crowns allow you to chew foods efficiently while maintaining a natural-looking esthetic. Even better, porcelain crowns make it easy to match the natural color of the smile.
Bridges fill small gaps of missing teeth, usually not more than three. This option utilizes adjacent, healthy teeth as anchors for the prosthetic, avoiding the need for surgical intervention. This prosthetic is crafted using porcelain and made to look like the original small group of teeth.
Dentures replace missing teeth using a mouthpiece crafted from a combination of acrylic and porcelain. These prosthetics are a tried-and-true method of helping patients restore dental function and improve the quality not only of their smile but their overall oral health.
Dental implants are one of the latest advancements in tooth-replacement technology. With implants, a post is placed directly into the jaw, where a restoration, such as dentures, crowns or bridges, can be affixed to the top of the implant and secured in place.
Root canal therapy saves a decayed tooth from requiring extraction by eliminating decay and filling the space with special material and a supporting post. This procedure involves restoring and protecting the tooth with a crown following the root canal treatment.
Periodontal maintenance is necessary to address the common issues of gum disease and advanced periodontitis, utilizing scaling and root planing and proactive techniques.
