In addition to advanced cosmetic dentistry procedures and TMD therapy, our dentists at Spring Lake Dental Care offer many restorative treatments to maintain the integrity and strength of your teeth, gums, and bite. By taking advantage of the latest innovations in dental technology, our patients can fight back against periodontal (gum) disease and eliminate gaps in their smiles with natural-looking tooth replacements. These treatments can help you speak and eat with greater ease while also increasing your confidence in your smile. Our restorative dentistry options include:
If you have missing teeth and are searching for an alternative to traditional dentures, dental implants may be the right solution for your needs. A missing tooth or multiple missing teeth can have a pronounced effect on the appearance of your smile, in addition to causing functional problems that affect chewing and speaking. Unlike traditional dentures, which have the potential for slippage along the gums and require extra daily maintenance, dental implants are designed to actually become a part of your mouth. Composed of a titanium post that is anchored to the jawbone in the area of the missing tooth and topped with a customized porcelain crown, dental implants mimic both the form and function of a natural tooth.

Cost of Dental Implants
The cost of dental implants will vary among each individual’s unique needs; however, our practice will give you an overall price estimate before you have the procedure performed. We offer a number of convenient payment options, and we work with reputable healthcare lending companies that can help qualified applicants finance the treatment over time.

Implant Supported Dentures – All-on-Four™
For patients who are missing all of their teeth, the All-on-Four™ implant-supported dentures technique can be an effective option for those who are looking to avoid a full set of dental implants. This treatment can also be advantageous for patients looking to save on the costs of full teeth restoration and for those who lack the adequate jawbone density for full sets of dental implants. The innovative All-on-Four™ system involves the placement of just four dental implants – two on the upper gums and two on the lower gums. Once the implants have fused to the jawbone and become a permanent part of your mouth, full sets of dentures can be anchored to the implants. This allows the dentures to be much more stable, significantly reducing the potential for slippage along the gumline. The dentures would not require adhesives for a proper fit, and the results can look and feel more natural.

Endodontics and Root Canal Therapy
In some cases, a tooth can be so heavily damaged or decayed that a special procedure known as a root canal must be performed in order to save it. An infected tooth can not only be very painful, it can also form a dangerous abscess and even heighten your risk of serious overall health problems. Our in-house endodontist, Dr. Fardad Tayebati, is extensively trained and experienced in root canal therapy and can help you restore both the health and appearance of your tooth in the most comfortable way possible.

Periodontal care can help you stave off the effects of gum disease. Treatment for gum disease as early as possible can prevent the condition from getting much worse, which can ultimately affect both the health of your teeth and even your general health. Gums that are receding or are showing signs of redness, bleeding, or swelling should be immediately examined and treated. Our dental team offers advanced treatment to help you maintain healthy gums.

If you are experiencing a large gap between your teeth due to multiple missing teeth, a dental bridge may be the best solution. Bridges have been utilized as effective missing teeth replacement procedures for decades, and can serve as a viable and natural-looking alternative for patients who may not be candidates for dental implants.

A porcelain crown is a custom-designed restorative and cosmetic dentistry option that can address chips, cracks, deep stains, and other issues. Crowns are also the finishing touches for dental implants and root canal therapy. A dental crown covers the entire tooth, allowing it to reinforce the structure of the tooth while enhancing its appearance at the same time.
