Restorative and general dentistry involves the diagnosis of all issues relating to the health and function of the smile, including the treatment and repair of broken, infected, or damaged teeth, gums, and tissue. There are a variety of services that can be performed by Dr. Lee, including everything from preventative care to the replacement of missing teeth. The following are brief descriptions of restorative dental health issues.
A Root Canal is infected tissues in the tooth pulp that can cause severe pain and eventually lead to tooth loss. Root Canal Therapy is designed to remove infected tissue with the goal of saving the tooth.
Periodontal disease and gingivitis allow infectious bacteria and viruses to penetrate from the gum tissue into the bloodstream. It is our goal to provide treatment that will enable our patients to achieve optimal oral health.
TMJ disorders can be the source of a variety of painful symptoms, from headaches to ear and neck pain.
Full Mouth Reconstruction
Patients with severe dental problems often require a full mouth reconstruction. When performing full mouth reconstructions it is often both cosmetic and restorative dentistry solutions that improve the health, function, and appearance of the smile.
Replacing one or more teeth is easier with the multitude of denture alternatives available to patients. Dentures are now more comfortable and affordable than ever before.
Implants are permanently set in the jaw, this is an ideal solution for patients missing teeth. With replacement teeth this will prevent painful shifting in the mouth.
When a tooth is severely damaged or decayed, dental crowns act as a protective cover, strengthening the tooth and reinforcing the jaw.
Dental bridges actually “bridge the gap” between remaining teeth, stabilizing the jaw by surrounding those teeth with attractive crowns.
