Solve Your Problem With the Right Dental Restorations

From cavities to missing teeth, we can solve many dental problems with our restorative dental treatments:

  • Tooth Fillings – We use amalgam-free fillings made of tooth-colored composite. Unlike metal fillings, they look natural in your smile. They’re also less likely to cause an allergic reaction or other health issue.
  • Dental Crowns – A crown repairs damage like breaks, cracks, and severe decay. Our porcelain crowns are strong, beautiful, and stain resistant. Dr. Roderick can also remove old metal restorations and replace them with porcelain.
  • Inlays and Onlays – These restorations cover more of your tooth than a filling does but less than a crown. We sometimes use them instead of a crown to fix cavities that are too large for a filling.
  • Dental Implants – These artificial tooth roots give your replacement teeth a strong foundation. We’ll refer you to an oral surgeon for your dental implant placement. Dr. Roderick can then restore your teeth with a crown, bridge, or even dentures.
  • Dental Bridges – A dental bridge can replace one tooth or several missing teeth in a row. A bridge is often attached to your surrounding teeth, but we can attach it to dental implants instead to avoid modifying healthy teeth.
  • Dentures – Replace teeth with removable dentures or with dental implant dentures that don’t need to be removed.
  • Gum Recession Treatment – If your gums are beginning to recede due to gum disease, we’ll restore your periodontal health with a deep cleaning treatment.

With his expertise and advanced technology like digital imaging, Dr. Roderick can solve problems affecting individual teeth or create a comprehensive plan for a full-mouth rehabilitation, replacing all or most of your teeth. He performs several reconstructions a year.

With our restorative care options, you may be able to avoid a root canal or a tooth extraction. If an extraction is needed, Dr. Roderick can often perform it or will refer you to an experienced oral surgeon. He can also refer you to a specialist for a root canal if you need one.

Remain Relaxed During Restorative Care With Dental Sedation

Dental sedation can keep you relaxed while you’re in our care, especially if you’re having lengthy or multiple procedures. We offer three options:

  • Inhaled Sedation – Also called laughing gas, it takes effect quickly when breathed in through a small mask worn over your nose. It also wears off quickly and leaves no lingering grogginess.
  • Oral Sedative – For a deeper level of relaxation, we can provide you with a safe prescription medication.
  • NuCalm – This form of natural sedation involves no drugs. Instead, a combination of amino acids and neuroacoustics (calming music or nature sounds) sends your brain into a relaxed state.

Common Questions About Restorative Dentistry
What does restorative dentistry include?

Any time you have a tooth that suffers damage from decay, infection, injury, or another type of trauma, restorative dentistry can repair it so you can save the tooth from further damage or extraction. It can also replace teeth to improve your health and chewing ability. Restorative treatment includes any service designed to relieve pain and help you regain oral function, like tooth fillings, root canals, crowns and bridges, dentures, gum recession treatment, inlays and onlays, and dental implants.

What are the benefits of restorative dentistry?

A healthy mouth is so much more than clean teeth and gums. Throughout your life, you may need restorative dental care to treat dental issues that cause pain or discomfort, interfere with your oral function, or threaten your oral health in general. Restorative dentistry services address problems like cavities, tooth infections, dental injuries, and tooth loss to keep your teeth functional and your mouth healthy. Ask if you can save with our Dental Health Membership Program.

What does restorative dentistry cost?

As you might imagine, since restorative dentistry covers a wide range of treatments, the cost can be just as wide ranging. A standard tooth filling is going to cost much less than dental implants. Once you come in for your initial exam, we can give you a much better idea of the cost involved in your restorative dentistry.
