Periodontal / Restorative Dentistry Q & A
What is a Periodontal / Restorative Dentistry Specialist?
Dr. Sajadi's patients, in Houston, TX have benefited from his restorative dentistry techniques and treatments. An individual’s teeth can face the damage caused by decay, infection, and accidents that lead to broken teeth. Restorative dentistry can restore or replace a damaged tooth back to a healthy shape and appearance.
What conditions can periodontal and restorative dentistry address?
The goal of periodontal and restorative dentistry is to ensure a healthy, beautiful smile in the case of tooth damage or decay. Restorative dentistry can help to prevent the loss of a tooth by repairing damage or decay. Missing teeth can be replaced with implants which is a more natural looking dental treatment, which restore normal chewing, speech, and facial shape. Restorative dentistry can help to improve a misaligned bite. Older, unattractive dental treatments can be replaced with modern treatments that look just like natural teeth. With implants you have a permanent solution for missing teeth.
What kinds of periodontal and restorative dental treatments does Eldridge Dental offer?
Dr. Sajadi is a specialist in periodontal, restorative dentistry and offers many restorative dental treatments to address any patient’s unique situation. To save a natural tooth, patients may turn to bonding or composite fillings. The bonding treatment replaces damaged or decayed tooth enamel with a coat of composite resin that is shaped and polished to blend seamlessly with natural teeth. Modern composite fillings match the shade of natural tooth enamel and provide nearly invisible repair for cavities.
More severely damaged teeth may benefit from the practice’s modern porcelain crowns (or caps) and fixed bridges. Natural-looking porcelain crowns replace the surface of damaged teeth, returning them to their original shape and size. Custom fixed bridges provide a permanent solution to replace or repair multiple adjacent damaged teeth. Porcelain treatments are available in many shades, to blend seamlessly with natural teeth.
Eldridge Dental's goal is to preserve the health and beauty of natural teeth as much as possible, but there are some cases in which it is best to pull a tooth. Dental implants and dentures offer solutions to replace missing teeth. Natural-looking dental implants provide a permanent option to replace lost teeth and restore a full, healthy smile. Full and partial dentures provide a practical option for the replacement of multiple missing teeth, restoring normal structure and function to the mouth.
