Restorative Dentistry in Oklahoma City
Oral wear and tear can happen to anyone. Even with good oral hygiene habits, not every dental problem can be fixed with a simple cleaning. Natural deterioration, accidents, and age can all cause problems and leave your teeth susceptible to additional damage. If your teeth have become worn down over time, it’s not too late to have them restored.
At Crossroads Family Dentistry, we can make damaged or misaligned teeth a thing of the past. If you believe you’re in need of restorative dentistry, book an appointment with us now, and we’ll walk you through the options. Our experienced dental team will work with you to find a treatment plan that will return your smile to a natural, healthy state.
With our fast treatment and modern equipment, there’s no reason you shouldn’t have your cavities filled in immediately. We use 3D imaging technology to take scans of your teeth and identify all the areas that potentially need fillings. Once the decay is removed, our team will precisely insert the filling material to close the gap and seal the tooth. This is all done without affecting the integrity of your tooth. If you’re worried that you may have cavities, call us at (405) 631-0322 to make an appointment today.
For larger cavities or damaged teeth, crowns are a safe option to prevent further decay. With our CEREC machine, we can craft a new crown for you within a day, eliminating the wait period. These customized crowns are durable and match the color of your natural tooth. Your damaged tooth will be capped and fully functional immediately. With good oral cleaning habits and regular dental visits, your crown can last for more than 15 years.
There have been many improvements to dentures with modern dentistry. At Crossroads Family Dentistry, our dentures are lightweight, natural-looking and can function exactly like regular teeth. If your teeth are in need of advanced restoration, dentures can reinforce even the most worn down teeth. Due to our intraoral cameras and x-rays, we can make your dentures customizable to fit your teeth exactly. Partial and full dentures are available.
If you’ve got a gap in your smile due to a lost tooth, it’s probably best to get a dental implant. This is not just an aesthetic solution, teeth can shift inwards on this empty space, causing a variety of different problems. Dental implants fill this space and bond to the jaw and gums with a simple titanium post. The post mimics the natural root of a tooth, and our CEREC device will craft a crown that will match the size, shape, and color of the missing tooth. Your smile will be completely restored.
If you have an infected or decaying tooth that is causing you pain, there’s no reason to allow it to remain. Rather than removing the whole tooth, Crossroads Family Dentistry offers root canal therapy. At your appointment, we’ll identify the problem and determine first if root canal therapy is required, as other options may be better for the integrity of your tooth. If the treatment is necessary, our imaging software will map out your teeth so we know exactly what needs to be removed. During the cleaning process, all the decaying and infected pulp and nerve will be taken out to prepare the area for a filling or crown.
