Restorative Dental Treatments
When a dental issue arises, restorative treatment may be necessary. Depending on your situation, it could be a simple fix or something that needs a little more attention. At Andrew Brown Dental we’re here for you. Here are some of the services that we offer
Root Canal Treatment
Root canals are used to save a tooth that has become infected. During this procedure, the infected tooth is removed and the nerve is treated. This is usually required when there is a fracture in the tooth or if the tooth has been severely damaged by decay.
Crown & onlays
If you have a broken or heavily damaged/decayed tooth it may require more than one filling to restore it. In this instance a full cuspal coverage in the form of crown or onlay may be suggested. These are lab made restorations usually using zirconia or emax, sometimes gold is fixed onto your own tooth to protect it from further damage. If your dentist feels you require this type of treatment they will discuss the procedure in detail at your appointment.
Sometimes a tooth becomes so damaged or decayed that it must be removed. This is usually done to prevent further damage to the tooth or the surrounding tissues.
Fillings are used to cover up the gaps left by decayed or broken teeth. They can either be amalgam (silver) or composite tooth coloured resin. Amalgam fillings are popular because they are easy to place and take on the shape of the tooth.
When a tooth is missing, a bridge can be used. A crown is attached to each end of two natural teeth. It serves as an artificial tooth to replace the missing one.
