The dental health of our bodies is a reflection of the overall health of the body. When we have teeth that are in good shape, it means that we also have good gum health, which leads to a strong jawline and healthy gums. If you’re having trouble with your teeth or gums, restorative dentistry can help you improve your oral health by restoring damaged teeth and preventing further damage from occurring.
Restorative dentistry is an art and science that requires extensive training and skill as well. Dr. Doroshenko and Dr. Lazer take a team approach to rebuild your smile. We will provide you with more options and in-house dental repairs than any other local dental office. A highly trained Prosthodontist, Dr. Doroshenko can offer patients comprehensive diagnostics and care for damaged and missing teeth under one roof in our Baltimore dentist office.
We offer complete restorative dental care and full mouth reconstruction to give you back a smile that is beautiful, comfortable, and functional. Restore your dental health and your quality of life with a personalized treatment plan from our dental office today.
Restorative Dentistry for Common Dental Issues
Restorative dentistry corrects damage from tooth decay, fillings that fall out, broken teeth that need repair and other dental issues that affect how well your teeth function. Our dentists focus on fixing the root of the problem rather than just the symptoms so you don’t have to visit a second time. We provide various treatment options to address any dental problem, including the following:
- Replacing your lost and missing teeth
- Repairing your damaged teeth
- Restoring worn-down teeth
- Repairing broken or decayed teeth
- Alleviating dental disease or infections
- Repairing infected wisdom tooth extraction sites
Our approach to restoring your smile will vary depending on the state of your teeth and the number of teeth missing. We will examine your mouth and see which procedure(s) will work best for you. Dr. Doroshenko and Dr. Lazer conduct a thorough oral health exam and a bite analysis to build a comprehensive picture of your overall oral health. Then we will use that data to only recommend the most appropriate and relevant restorative treatments for your needs.
We maintain open communication with our patients allowing them time to voice their concerns and discuss their cosmetic goals. That’s why our restorative dentistry focuses on rebuilding the structural foundation, rather than just fixing the surface-level problem. From restoring a damaged tooth to replacing a full arch of missing teeth, our team offers a full range of treatment options for partial or complete mouth reconstructions.
After a thorough examination, we will discuss the treatments that are best for restoring the full function to your mouth as well as its beauty. We will build a treatment plan that fits within your budget, complements your lifestyle, and meets your dental goals. Some of our most popular restorative dentistry treatments include the following.
Dental implants are a type of dental restoration that we can use to replace a missing tooth or many of your lost teeth. Dentists also call them “rootless” teeth or “tooth in a day” because a dental implant specialist can place them in the mouth within one day.
We can also place the small posts in your jawbone to support a crown or denture. The procedure is usually complete in two steps: First, our dentist will place the implant into your jawbone and allow it to heal for several months (this may require additional surgery). Then, you’ll return to have us cap the dental implant with a crown or denture. To learn more about our dental implant services, see Dental implants.
A dental bridge is a fixed dental prosthesis that we can use to replace one or more of your missing teeth. Two crowns on either end hold it in place, which we usually anchor or cement onto the abutment teeth (teeth next to your missing tooth). They are then joined by an artificial tooth in between them.
A bridge can consist of a variety of materials including porcelain, resin and gold alloys. However, we usually make them using a combination of metal and porcelain. It is best for filling the gap between two natural teeth. To learn more about our dental bridge procedure, see Dental bridges.
A dental crown is a cap that we can use to restore the shape, size and appearance of your imperfect teeth. Dental crowns strengthen teeth and make them more stable. It also helps protect your natural teeth from further damage by covering any exposed root, nerves and bone tissue in the affected area.
We can use them as part of a dental bridge, to cap a dental implant, after a root canal treatment, or even on their own to repair a severely damaged tooth. In some cases, this will involve us removing the entire tooth structure and replacing it with a crown. However, we may also be able to use a crown instead of other treatments such as a filling. To learn more about our dental crown treatment, see Dental Crowns.
Our dentures look and feel like your real teeth, and they can replace all or some of your natural teeth. They are custom-made to fit your mouth, and usually consist of plastic or acrylic with metal clasps on the side for extra strength. Dentures can improve how you feel about yourself, as well as make eating easier for you. Dentures help improve your speech and eating ability by supporting your lips, cheeks and tongue.
If you have lost all of your teeth or some of them, we can make you dentures so that you don’t need to worry about missing any more meals! We will work with you to ensure that your new dentures fit comfortably and look natural. To learn about our denture services, see Cosmetic dentures.
