What is Restorative Dental Care?
Any procedure that aims to restore the normal function and appearance of your smile is considered restorative dental care.
Our dentists can help restore your smile – and your oral health – by repairing structural issues such as damaged or missing teeth.
The dentists at Spackman Dental will determine the best restorative treatment option for you based on your issue.
Dental Crowns in Calgary
Crowns are usually, porcelain caps that are fitted over teeth to restore their function and appearance. Crowns are used to secure bridges, cover dental implants, and keep a cracked tooth from worsening. They can also help to restore the natural appearance of a discoloured or stained tooth.
Dental Bridges in Calgary
Bridges are tooth replacements that should look natural and are bonded to existing teeth or dental implants to replace a section of missing teeth. Bridges should be barely noticeable because they are custom-made and can restore the natural contour of teeth as well as the bite between upper and lower teeth.
Dental Fillings in Calgary
To repair a cavity or tooth damage, such as a crack, we use composite (tooth-coloured) fillings at Spackman Dental. These fillings should withstand moderate pressure from chewing stress and can be used on both front and back teeth.
Partial Dentures in Calgary
Partial dentures are artificial teeth used to replace one or more missing teeth in a row. They allow patients with missing teeth to keep their facial structure and properly speak and eat.
Periodontal (Gum) Therapy in Calgary
Gum disease is an infection of the mouth's tissues, which include the gums, gingiva, alveolar bone, cementum, and periodontal ligament. If the disease is detected early on, preventive therapy will usually be recommended. Otherwise, treatment will be determined by the type and severity of the disease.
Root Canals in Calgary
A root canal is a dental procedure where diseased blood vessels, nerves, and tissues are removed from the interior of a tooth by your dentist. Your dentist can help stop the spread of infection and avoid the need for extraction by removing decay and bacteria.
TMJ Disorder Treatment in Calgary
The temporomandibular joint (or TMJ) is a hinge that connects your jaw to your skull's temporal bones. This joint disorder can result in a variety of problems with your jaw and the muscles in your face, including painful symptoms. TMJ Disorder can be tested for, diagnosed, and treated by our dentists. Treatment may include wearing a mouth guard for sleep to prevent clenching and grinding. Your dentist may also recommend relaxation techniques, physical therapy, or a TENS machine (an electrical stimulus device) to encourage the face and jaw muscles to relax.
