Whether you are in need of oral appliance therapy to relieve your jaw pain or you would like to learn more about your tooth-replacement option. Dr. Romay is here to provide you with those services accordingly. Our office provides an extensive list of restorative solutions, including:

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are a great solution for patients who have experienced severe dental damage. Deep chips or cracks cause more than just cosmetic concerns and will eventually affect the functionality of your smile.

To help with this, your affected tooth can be shaved down to its foundational core and replaced with a prosthetic cap, known as a dental crown. Patients love our dental crowns because it allows them to fix damaged teeth without the need for a tooth extraction. To learn more about the dental crown process, see Dental Crowns.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are the premier option when it comes to tooth replacement. This restorative option allows for patients to replace a missing tooth with a prosthetic tooth that is supported by a surgically implanted titanium post. The post gives your restoration tooth-root functionality which completely restores your missing tooth’s look, feel, and functionality. We offer several types of dental implants to meet all our patients needs. To learn more about the dental implant process, see Dental Implants.

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are a more conservative approach to tooth replacement. Compared to dental implants, they do not require a surgical procedure.

Instead, dental bridges rely on the support of your surrounding teeth to hold a prosthetic tooth in place of the missing tooth. Dental bridges are a great option for tooth replacement if you are looking to avoid a surgical procedure; however, they do come with dietary restrictions and oral hygiene requirements that dental implants do not. To learn more about the dental bridge process, see Dental Bridges.

Dentures and Partials

If you are missing a whole row of teeth on the top or bottom arch, we can provide you with complete dentures. We also offer partials dentures if you are only missing several teeth on the top or bottom arch. Our dentures and partials are designed to completely restore your smile following tooth loss, and can even be supported using dental implants to prevent slippage. We will design them to blend naturally and compliment your smile. To learn more about the denture process, see Dentures and Partials.

TMJ Treatment

If you suffer from jaw pain, tension headaches, or earaches, you may be experiencing a TMJ disorder. TMJ disorders are often triggered if you have a history of teeth grinding.

Additionally, patients may develop TMJ disorders if they have a misaligned bite pattern or if they are missing one or more teeth. To combat TMJ, Dr. Romay works to find the underlying cause of your symptoms and remedy them accordingly. She will provide you with a comprehensive TMJ treatment plan that will help you find relief from your TMJ pain. To learn more about your treatment options, see TMJ Treatment.

What is not commonly included under restorative dental care?

Restorative dentistry involves restoring teeth that are damaged or missing. It also involves treating patients who suffer from diseases such as gum disease, and patients who have bite issues such as TMD. Common procedures includes fillings, bridges, and implants. Dental veneers and teeth whitening are services that do not fall under the category of restorative dentistry, as these are cosmetic dentistry treatments.

What should I do after tooth restoration?

48 hours following surgery, a saltwater rinse will aid in the healing of the surgical site.  Brush your teeth softly for a few days, and then resume normal brushing once it begins to feel comfortable. It is also important to be sure to floss once you resume your regular brushing routine.

What are my options if I need a tooth extraction?

A tooth extraction is a common dental procedure Dr. Romay may use when she is unable to save a tooth that is beyond repair. However, it is important to replace the tooth. A dental implant supported crown is the most natural option that will provide the best results for your oral health. It is also the most expensive, will require surgery, and the process takes awhile to complete. A dental bridge is also an option. It requires the use of adjacent that will be need to be reduced in size. However, this option is more affordable and Dr. Romay can complete treatment in less than a month.

What will happen if I fail to seek gum disease treatment?

Gum disease is a progressive disease that can lead to serious complications. It can lead severe oral health and systemic health issues, some that are irreversible. If you think you have gum disease, seeking prompt treatment is crucial. The infection can spread, causing tooth loss, bone, and gum recession. It can even spread to other parts of the body and increase your risk of heart disease, diabetes, and stroke.

What will happen if I ignore my TMJ symptoms?

Ignoring TMJ symptoms can lead to chronic pain, difficulty chewing, and irreversible damage to the jaw joint. It may result in worsening discomfort, headaches, earaches, and difficulty opening or closing the mouth. Over time, untreated TMJ disorders can significantly impact quality of life and may require more invasive treatments to address.
