Rehabilitative or restorative dentistry restores a tooth’s shape and appearance to its natural state. If you have a cavity, severe tooth decay, or a damaged tooth or you experienced a traumatic accident that has affected your teeth, our restorative dental treatments are the solution.
Restorations take many forms, and luckily our dentist in Marshall has expert-level experience and passion for all of them! Discover what restorative dentistry can do for your smile in our Marshall, TX office. We also provide comprehensive dental services to our patients in Marshall, Texas, and the surrounding area.
Root Canals and Fillings
One of the most common rehabilitative dental procedures is a root canal. Root canals eliminate the infection in a specific tooth entering the tooth root and removing the cause of any particular infection or inflammation. After we decontaminate the root, we fill the tooth. We use fillings after root canals and can repair cavities or cracked and broken teeth with similar materials. Additionally, we can repair teeth worn down by clenching or grinding with similar resin.
Healthy Smiles Need Healthy Gums
Periodontal disease attacks the gums and the bone that supports your teeth. Gum disease is primarily caused by plaque, a sticky film of food debris, bacteria, and saliva. If left on its own, plaque will destroy your gums and bone. Gum disease is characterized by red, swollen, and bleeding gums.
We also take many preventative measures to prevent gum disease from developing in the first place. Coming in for your bi-yearly hygiene appointments is one of the best ways to prevent gum disease. Our hygienists will thoroughly clean your teeth and remove any disease-causing plaque and tartar you cannot remove with your daily brushing and flossing routine.
One of the main reasons people develop gum disease is that they do not keep up with their hygiene appointments. If you are coming to see us and be treated for a periodontal disease that has already developed, we have many helpful options!
Prevent & Heal
Our dentist will carefully examine your gums and develop a straightforward recovery plan. It is simpler to reverse signs of gum disease if you are in the early stages of gum disease or gingivitis.
Swollen and tender gums generally characterize gingivitis. This is because gingivitis does not directly impact the bone attached to your teeth. However, if you leave gingivitis untreated, it can become periodontal disease. Periodontal disease or gum disease affects the bone attached to your teeth and the tissue, so it is vital to catch gum disease before it progresses.
