Get Back Your Beautiful Smile Today!
Restorative dentistry is an effective way to get back not only your confidence but your health as well
Are you aware that your oral health can impact your overall health? Numerous studies have pointed to the fact that poor oral health, such as gum disease or missing teeth can lead to health issues such as diabetes, stroke, heart attack and even cancer.
Missing teeth can actually snowball the issue; if you lose a tooth it can cause gum disease which can cause (as has been mentioned) further problems. Missing teeth can also cause further tooth loss and loss of jaw bone density.
In fact the list of things that can go wrong with our teeth is rather long. This is why at Bruce Stevens Dental we offer a range of restorative dental treatments to suit your individual needs. The first thing that is done when you come in to see us here at Bruce Stevens dental in Cairns is that we make an assessment of your oral health to see what treatment (or treatments) will best serve your needs.
Restorative dentistry at Bruce Stevens Dental…
Our range of restorative dental treatments at Brue Stevens Dental includes:
- Crowns and bridges
- Root canal therapy
- Dental implants
Crowns and Bridges
Porcelain crowns are durable and strong ceramic caps that cover a brittle, cracked or decayed tooth. The functional and aesthetic benefits of a porcelain crown are: crowns look just like your natural teeth and enhance your smile by fitting over the tooth. The crown is moulded on your natural tooth and the shade of porcelain matches your other teeth to ensure a correct bite.
While crowns are a good option if one tooth is damaged, a bridge is good if one or more teeth have been lost. A bridge is capable of filling a gap of as many as four teeth if there are healthy teeth on either side of the gap. The bridge will replace your missing teeth both aesthetically and functionally.
Dental implants replace the entire tooth. Dental implants are a titanium screw that is surgically inserted into the jaw to act as a tooth root for a crown or bridge. Like your natural teeth, if looked after properly dental implants can last a lifetime. At Bruce Stevens Dental we use Nobel Biocare implants—currently the world’s most popular dental implant technology.
Root Canal (Endodontics)
Root canal therapy becomes necessary when the nerve of the tooth (the pulp) becomes diseased or infected. The aim of a root canal is to save the tooth from needing to be extracted. Because, you see, there is no real substitute for a natural tooth—it’s why dentists perform root canals. Root canals are better than extraction: better for your oral health to have natural teeth.
