At Highmoor Dental, our Edmonton dentist provides restorative dental services including fillings, crowns, dentures, TMJ treatment and gum therapy.
Restorative dental care encompasses any procedure which aims to restore your smile's appearance and function.
By repairing structural issues such as missing, misaligned or damaged teeth, our dentist is able to help restore your smile and your oral health too.
Depending on your issue, the dentists at Highmoor Dental will determine the right restorative treatment option for you.
Dental crowns are porcelain caps placed on top of your teeth to restore their function and appearance. Crowns are used to attach bridges, to cover dental implants and to prevent cracked or damaged teeth from worsening in condition. They can also help a stained or discoloured tooth achieve it's natural appearance.
Bridges are natural-looking tooth replacements which bond with your existing teeth or dental implants in order to replace a section of missing teeth. Since they are custom-made for your mouth, bridges are difficult to notice and are able to restore the contour, colour, and bite of your teeth.
At Highmoor Dental, we use a composite, tooth-coloured fillings to repair cavities and tooth decay, such as a crack. Fillings are able to withstand normal use and moderate pressure caused by the stress of chewing, These fillings can be used on either the front or back teeth.
Dentures are artificial teeth used to replace one missing tooth or several in a row (partial dentures), or a whole jaw of missing teeth (full dentures). They allow patients with missing teeth to maintain their face structure, and talk and eat properly.
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 in a dental laboratory and are then permanently cemented to the tooth as a single piece.
A root canal is a procedure in which your dentist removes diseased blood vessels, nerves and tissues from within the interior of a tooth. By removing bacteria and decay from within your tooth, your dentist can help to halt the infection and prevent the need for a full extraction.
Gum disease is the infection of your mouth's soft tissues, including the gums, alveolar, gingiva, bone cementum and periodontal ligament. If this disease is caught early on, preventative therapy will be recommended by your dentist. Otherwise, treatment methods will have to be tailored to the severity of the specific case.
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 dentists can test for, diagnose and provide a treatment plan for TMJ Disorder.
Botox® is a purified protein which is used in dentistry. When this substance is injected into your facial muscles it releases a neurotoxin that prevents those muscles from contracting and helps them to relax. By using Botox, our dentist is able to treat headaches and jaw pain and alleviate the symptoms of clenching and grinding.
