The Importance of Restorative Dental Care

The goal of restorative dentistry is to renew the full function of the smile by repairing tooth damage and replacing missing teeth. Restorative dental treatments can help:

Restore Comfort To Your Smile

Biting or chewing with damaged or missing teeth can be painful. Drinking hot or cold beverages can lead to tooth and gum sensitivity if you regularly experience infections or tooth wear. If you experience pain or sensitivity because of your oral health problems, visiting a restorative dentist can eliminate your discomfort.

After you heal from restorative dental care, you can eat the foods you love. Restorations like dental crowns can cover worn and broken teeth, while dental restorations that use dental implants offer more support and use durable false teeth to renew the smile.

We can also recommend treatments like periodontal therapy to address problems that increase sensitivity in addition to your damaged or missing teeth.

Improve Your Smile Appearance

Problems like broken, missing, and worn teeth (due to teeth grinding) can make a large difference in the look of your smile. You may hide your smile from friends or acquaintances because you are self-conscious about your teeth.

After restorative treatments like dental crowns, implants, or implant-secured restorations, you can smile while prominently showing off your new teeth. Dental restorations will help you laugh, smile, and talk naturally.

Make Everyday Function Easier

Severe tooth damage and lost teeth make biting and chewing difficult. Without support from your natural teeth, you may find it difficult to eat hard and crunchy foods with worn, damaged, or missing teeth. Your teeth also have a large role in how you speak. If you are missing permanent teeth or have extensive tooth damage in the front of your mouth, you can find it difficult to pronounce certain words.

Tooth replacements, including dental implants, crowns, bridges, and dentures restore full bite function. With practice, you can form “th” and “ch” sounds that were previously difficult to pronounce with lost teeth.

Solutions for Complex Dental Problems

Dr. Finlay offers comprehensive care for a wide range of cosmetic and restorative dental concerns, including:

Broken & Missing Teeth

Dental Implants in Annapolis MD

Broken or missing teeth can cause major concern and should be treated quickly. Aside from cosmetic problems, broken and missing teeth pose serious health risks. Once a tooth is lost, the bone and gum are susceptible to decay, trauma, and deterioration.

You can lose your natural jawbone and encounter facial sagging. Decay-causing bacteria can collect in missing tooth gaps and infect the teeth and gums. If you lose a tooth to decay, your remaining natural teeth may loosen or fall out, too. Restoring a broken or missing tooth immediately can prevent these problems.

We offer several treatment options, including dental implants, dental bridges, or dentures. Dr. Finlay and his dental team have extensive training and experience in restorative dentistry and will help you choose which treatment is right for you. We will perform a comprehensive evaluation to diagnose your specific condition and make recommendations for the best long-term results.

Teeth Grinding

Many people grind or clench their teeth at night without even realizing it. Teeth grinding can lead to serious jaw disorders, headaches, damaged teeth, and other problems. Dr. Finlay doesn’t just practice treatment solutions for TMJ; he teaches them at the Dawson Academy.

Visit us for expert care and comprehensive treatment options. Dr. Finlay will treat and correct the source of the problem and will also repair any damage as a result of teeth grinding. He may suggest bite equilibration and recommend a nightguard or orthodontics to address teeth grinding based on the source of your symptoms.

Bleeding Gums

Bleeding gums are a common sign of periodontal disease or gum disease. Gum pain, sore gums, and gums that bleed may all be present in patients with gingivitis, an early stage of gum disease. While brushing and flossing may sometimes be enough to reverse bleeding gums, you may need professional care depending on the extent of your gum symptoms.

Routine visits to the dentist and professional teeth cleanings are extremely important for preventing gum disease. Dr. Finlay offers several treatment options for patients who already have advanced signs of gum disease.

What is a Full Mouth Restoration?

A full mouth restoration, also known as a full mouth reconstruction, uses a variety of restorative dental treatments to renew the smile. If you have multiple dental problems, including missing, damaged, or decayed teeth, Dr. Finlay will help you fully restore your smile.

Dr. Finlay will evaluate your smile and recommend which treatments will benefit you. He will often recommend treatments to address problems like tooth decay or gum disease before restorative care to ensure that you are in good oral health. Then, he will begin repairing your smile and replacing missing teeth.

If you don’t know where to start with your restorative needs, you may benefit from a full mouth restoration.
