Repairing Structural Issues
Restorative dental care includes any procedure that aims to restore the normal function and appearance of your smile.
Our dentists can help restore your smile - and your oral health - by repairing structural issues such as damaged or missing teeth.
Depending on your issue, the dentists at My Care Dental will determine the right restorative treatment option for you.
Crowns are porcelain caps that are placed on top of teeth to restore their function and appearance. Crowns are used to attach bridges, cover dental implants or prevent a cracked tooth from worsening. They can also help to restore a discoloured or stained tooth to its natural appearance.
Bridges are tooth replacements that look natural and are bonded to existing teeth or dental implants to replace a section of missing teeth. Bridges are barely noticeable because they are custom-made and can restore the natural contour of teeth as well as the bite between the upper and lower teeth.
Full & Partial Dentures
Dentures are artificial teeth that replace one missing tooth, several in a row (partial dentures), or a whole jaw of missing teeth (full dentures). They allow patients maintain their facial structure, and talk and eat properly.
At My Care Dental, we use composite (tooth-coloured) fillings to repair a cavity or tooth damage, like a crack. These fillings can withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing, and can be used on front and back teeth.
Inlays & Onlays
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 where your dentist removes diseased blood vessels, nerves and tissues from the interior of a tooth. By removing the decay and bacteria, your dentist can help prevent the need for an extraction.
TMJ Disorder Treatment
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.
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).
