Restorative Dentistry in Ellicott City, MD
Our restorative dental services help revitalize the look and health of the smile:
Patients who are missing consecutive teeth benefit from a dental bridge. Traditional bridges use the support of adjacent teeth to hold a dental prosthetic in place. These adjacent teeth are covered with dental crowns. However, dental bridges can also be supported by dental implants so they last longer.
Dental crowns are made of durable porcelain ceramic and used to restore discolored, chipped, worn, or damaged teeth. They can also cover dental implants. Because tooth crowns are made of porcelain ceramic, they blend in with natural teeth. Tooth crowns provide durability and strength.
Dental implants are dental prosthetics that can replace one or multiple lost teeth. Made of titanium posts inserted into the jawbone, tooth implants support the dental structure and help retain the bite. With implants as well as implant-supported bridges or dentures, patients can get the natural look and function of their smile back.
Dentures and Partials
Full and partial dentures restore rows and arches of missing teeth. Adhesives are usually used to keep dentures in place. However, we can also secure dentures with dental implants. Patients who receive implant-secured dentures find it easier to speak and eat.
Gum Disease Treatment
Dr. Denise Halliburton provides periodontal disease treatment in Ellicott City, MD. Periodontitis or gum disease is a common yet harmful oral health problem. Gum disease starts as gum inflammation, which can cause red and swollen gums. Over time, this can develop into gum recession and even bone loss. We treat gum inflammation and disease to prevent these oral health issues.
Dr. Denise Halliburton provides TMJ treatment to his patients in Ellicott City, MD. Temporomandibular joint disorders are caused by injury or dysfunction of the joint that connects the jawbone to the skull. They can cause tooth and jaw pain, migraines, and other painful symptoms. TMJ disorders can be treated with nightguards. Nightguards are oral appliances similar to mouthguards that we provide to prevent jaw pain and keep teeth from grinding together.
Restorative Dental FAQs
Learn more about our restorative dental services below:
Is restorative dental care covered by insurance?
Insurance typically covers at least part of your restorative treatment. Our office also provides an in-house insurance plan for patients without insurance so they can get the dental treatment they require.
Are dental implants right for me?
The optimal candidates for dental implant treatment are patients with healthy teeth and gums. Typically, we want enough jawbone in the mouth to support dental implants. However, we can recommend bone grafting and gum disease treatment if required. After these treatments, patients can still easily receive dental implants or other implant restorations.
Do dental crowns damage the teeth?
No, dental crowns do not cause damage to the teeth underneath. Patients have nothing to fear if their teeth and gums are healthy. Dysfunction only occurs if the crowns are damaged by an injury or infection. Otherwise, crowns are a viable option for patients with missing or worn teeth.
