Fix Cavities & Other Damage With Restorative Dental Treatments

Even those who visit us regularly for dental cleanings and other preventive treatments may end up with an occasional cavity. We use equipment like digital X-rays and an intraoral camera to find cavities when they are small and can be treated with minimal impact on your tooth structure. Depending on the degree of decay, we will use:

  • Tooth Fillings – A filling is the most conservative treatment for dental decay. We use composite fillings that we can match to the color of your other teeth. Unlike metal fillings, they will look completely natural in your smile.
  • Dental Crowns – A crown can repair teeth with more extensive decay. Since it covers your entire tooth, it can also repair cracks and breaks. We can even use a crown to hide cosmetic issues like deep stains or a misshapen tooth.
  • Root Canals – Left untreated, decay can get inside your tooth, where it causes a painful infection. We’ll need to remove the infected pulp during a root canal procedure to save your tooth. The treatment also keeps infection from spreading to your jaw and even other areas of your body.

No matter which treatment you receive, we’ll numb your mouth with our comfortable form of local anesthesia that doesn’t involve pain. If you’re still concerned about discomfort, we can also administer laughing gas. When inhaled through a small mask worn over your nose, it will keep you relaxed throughout your procedure.

Select the Right Tooth Replacement for Your Smile

The number of teeth that are missing, your overall oral health, and your budget are all factors that will likely influence your decision on replacement teeth for your smile. Your options are:

  • Dental Implants – If you want a new tooth that will look, function, and feel almost exactly like your natural one, we recommend a dental implant. Implants can be restored with dental crowns, bridges, or dentures.
  • Dental Bridge – Whether it’s anchored by crowns on your teeth or by dental implants, a bridge can replace one tooth or several missing teeth. An implant-supported bridge eliminates the need to drill into healthy teeth.
  • Dentures – We have several denture options, including full removable dentures, partial removable dentures, and implant dentures.

To regain your healthy, bright smile, visit your restorative dentist in Rockport. Call Sabal Dental at 361-209-8609. You can also schedule your appointment  online.

Common Questions About Restorative Dentistry

What does restorative dentistry include?

Restorative dentistry covers an assortment of dental services designed to fix and restore damaged and lost teeth. At Sabal Dental, we offer a number of types of restorative dentistry, including tooth-colored fillings, root canal treatment, dental crowns, bridges, dentures, dental implants, and full-mouth reconstruction. There is no dental issue too large or too small that restorative dentistry can’t address.

What does restorative dentistry cost?

Since restorative dentistry covers such a vast array of services, its cost is just as wide ranging. When you’ve come in for a preliminary exam and we have taken a set of digital images, we can provide you a precise estimate of the expense for your dental work. We encourage you to call us to establish this exam and start fixing your smile.

What is advanced restorative dentistry?

Advanced restorative dentistry refers to intricate treatments developed to repair extensive damage to your teeth. This kind of dental work exceeds an easy filling in terms of its capability to restore teeth. It could include placing a number of dental implants and connecting dentures or a set of fixed teeth to them, or perhaps carrying out a full-mouth restoration to restore all your teeth.
