At Fifth Avenue Dental Care we offer full restorative dental services in Orangeville and surrounding communities. Whether your tooth has been chipped, or it has decayed from poor oral hygiene, we can help you. Restorative dentistry works to build back degraded tooth structures. We offer:
Composite fillings: a (tooth colored) filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks, fractures, etc. The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed and then filled with a composite filling.
Crowns: A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations.
Dentures and Partial Dentures: A denture is a removable dental appliance replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissue. They are made to closely resemble your natural teeth and may even enhance your smile.
Fixed bridges: A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent way to replace missing teeth.
Root canal therapy: Root canal therapy is needed when the nerve of a tooth is affected by decay or infection. In order to save the tooth, the pulp (the living tissue inside the tooth), nerves, bacteria, and any decay are removed and the resulting space is filled to restore the tooth to its full function.
It is normal to experience sensitivity, increased saliva flow or difficulty chewing after a restorative dentistry treatment, however the discomfort will subside shortly after your muscles, tissue and teeth get used the new applications in your mouth.
