Access Dental in Grande Prairie provides a complete range of restorative dental services including fillings, bridges, crowns, dentures, gum therapy, and TMJ treatment.
What is Restorative Dental Care?
Restorative dental care includes any procedure that is designed to restore the normal function and appearance of your teeth and gums.
By treating problems like damaged teeth and gum disease, our dentists can help restore your smile – and your oral health.
Depending on your specific oral health concern, the dentists at Access Dental will determine the right restorative treatment option for you.
Crowns are porcelain caps that are placed over the teeth to restore their appearance and function. These restorations are used to attach bridges, cover dental implants or repair a cracked tooth. They can also help to restore a discoloured or stained tooth to its natural appearance.
Bridges are natural-looking replacements for missing teeth that are bonded to surrounding teeth, or to dental implants. Because they are custom-made, bridges blend in well, and can restore the natural contour of teeth and the bite between upper and lower teeth.
At Access Dental, we use composite (tooth-coloured) dental fillings to repair cavities or tooth damage, like a crack. Composite fillings can withstand pressure from the stress of chewing, and can be used on front and back teeth.
Inlays & Onlays
Inlays and onlays are tooth-coloured restorations that are used to repair damage that is too extensive for a standard dental filling. Inlays and onlays are custom-made in a dental lab and then permanently cemented to the tooth as a single piece.
A root canal is a procedure during which your dentist removes diseased blood vessels, nerves and tissues (otherwise known as the 'pulp') from the interior of a tooth. By removing the decay and bacteria, your dentist can halt the spread of infection and prevent the need for a tooth extraction.
Periodontal (Gum) Therapy
Gum disease is an infection of the supporting tissues of the teeth, including the gums, gingiva, alveolar bone, cementum, and periodontal ligament. In the early stages, preventive therapy will be recommended. Otherwise, treatment methods will depend on the type and severity of the disease.
TMJ Disorder Treatment
The temporomandibular joint (or TMJ) connects your jaw to the temporal bones of your skull. A disorder of this joint can result in a host of issues with your jaw and the muscles in your face, including painful symptoms. Our dentists can test for, diagnose and provide a treatment plan for TMJ Disorder.
Full-Mouth Restoration Plans
Our dentists can develop a comprehensive treatment plan that combines a variety of coordinated dental procedures.
