Restorative Dentistry in Glyndon, MD
With our restorative dentistry services, we aim to get you back on track to achieving your dream smile. 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 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.
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.
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.
Dentures & Partials
If you are missing a full arch of teeth, we are happy to provide custom dentures and partials. 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.
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.
Periodontal Disease Treatment
Gum disease is a very common dental concern that we treat in our office. We provide periodontal disease treatment options including scaling and root planing services to clean the deep pockets of your gums and get rid of harmful bacteria that could be eating away at your soft tissues.
Restorative Dentistry FAQs
What is not commonly included under restorative dental care?
Restorative dentistry involves operations including fillings, bridges, and implants. The use of veneers or teeth whitening services does not fall under the category of restorative dentistry, as these are classified as cosmetic services.
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.
