Restorative dentistry makes up a large part of many dental practices. Restorative dentistry works to replace missing teeth, fill in cavities, and treat diseased teeth to restore the functionality of your mouth. At Distinctive Laser Dentistry, we offer several restorative dentistry treatments, including tooth-colored fillings, wisdom teeth removal, dental implants, gum cleanings, root canal therapy, and NightLase® laser snoring therapy. Contact our office today to learn more about the restorative dentistry treatments offered at Distinctive Laser Dentistry!
At Distinctive Laser Dentistry, we use tooth-colored fillings made from resin or porcelain to treat fill in cavities or treat other tooth ailments. Using porcelain or resin fillings not only improves the aesthetic appearance of a filling, but these materials will not cause damage to the tooth like other filling materials. Tooth-colored fillings are easy to apply and blend in with the remaining natural teeth to create a healthy, natural-looking smile.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
If you need to have your wisdom teeth removed, Distinctive Laser Dentistry is here to help! It is often necessary to remove wisdom teeth to prevent jaw and bite issues and overcrowding in the mouth. With advancements in restorative dentistry, removing wisdom teeth has become a significantly less traumatic procedure.
Dental implants are used to secure artificial teeth, crowns, or bridges into place. A dental implant is a synthetic tooth root that is surgically implanted in the jaw and helps improve oral health and function for patients missing teeth. Dental implants also improve the aesthetic appearance of the mouth and easily blend in with natural teeth.
Professional gum cleanings can prevent bacterial infections that cause gum disease. During this restorative dental treatment we remove plaque and tartar beneath the gum line and smooth the surface of the tooth root to allow gum tissues to heal and reattach to the tooth. Dr. Telly Pappas may recommend an antimicrobial rinse or antibiotics to encourage healing and prevent infections.
Root Canal Therapy
This restorative dental treatment corrects dental pulp disorders, like abscessed or infected nerves, and can potentially keep the natural tooth from being removed.
NightLase® Laser Snoring Therapy
Is the quality of your sleep being disrupted by snoring or the effects of sleep apnea? Distinctive Laser Dentistry offers NightLase®, a non-invasive treatment that uses laser energy to reduce the intensity of snoring and improve the effects of sleep apnea.
