Dr. Shalini Sethi, Dr. Stavros Papaeracleous, and Dr. Evan Padousis have experience in providing restorative dental services, including oral surgery and periodontal therapy. Restorative dentistry services are a part of the main dental services we offer to the public. Together, Dr. Sethi, Dr. Pappas, and Dr. Padousis can help patients renew and rebuild their smiles with restorative dentistry solutions in Rosedale, MD.
Restorative dental services address multiple problems, including damaged and missing teeth, gum disease, and TMJ disorders. With our restorative dental care, patients are able to treat complex oral health issues in one place. Whether you have damaged or missing teeth, we can help.
Our restorative dental solutions provide patients with renewed bite function, fuller smiles, and healthier teeth and gums.
A dental bridge can be used to replace a row of lost teeth. Bridges may be secured by adjacent natural teeth or dental implants. Implant-secured dental bridges last longer than traditional dental bridges. This is because dental implants support the health of the gums and remaining natural teeth.
A tooth crown acts as a cap to cover a natural tooth or dental implant. Although crowns are traditionally made of gold or amalgamated metal, we use porcelain ceramic for our crowns. Porcelain ceramic is a durable material that not only strengthens teeth but also matches the shade of any natural surrounding teeth.
As one of the most versatile dental restorations, dental implants are used to replace single or multiple missing teeth. A dental implant is a titanium screw placed in the jaw bone. Once the dental implant fuses with the jaw bone tissue, it becomes a part of the mouth.
Dentures & Partials
We offer full and partial dentures for patients missing rows or arches of teeth. Removable dentures use snaps or adhesive to stay in place. As a result, they slip around the mouth and may make it difficult to eat hard and chewy foods. Implant-supported dentures allow patients to eat without any dietary restrictions because dental implants support full bite function.
Periodontal Disease Treatment
Periodontitis or gum disease is a highly damaging dental problem that is caused by a buildup of bacteria on and beneath the gums. Our dental office provides periodontal disease treatment to Rosedale, MD. Dr. Sethi offers deep cleaning treatment with the Cavitron and Perio Trays. These treatments remove plaque and tartar and help prevent reinfection. Perio Protect trays are designed to deliver consistent periodontal medication so that you can continue to treat gum disease between visits.
Temporomandibular joint disorders are marked by stress or injury to the joints that connect the jawbone to the skull. TMJ disorders can cause jaw and tooth pain, teeth clenching and grinding, and chronic headaches and migraines. Our dental office provides TMJ treatment to Baltimore County, Maryland. Nightguards and physical therapy may be used together to combat TMJ symptoms.
Restorative Dental FAQs
Do you want to know more about your restorative dental options? Read answers to frequently asked questions that many of our patients have about restorative care:
Can I reverse gum disease?
Yes, it is simple to stop the development of gum disease in its early stages. Patients who brush and floss twice a day as well as schedule biannual dental appointments can reverse gum inflammation. However, it is more difficult to reverse gum disease as it progresses. Please call us for a dental appointment so we can provide you with the correct treatment for your gums.
What is the difference between a dental bridge and a partial denture?
Both bridges and partial dentures replace rows of multiple missing teeth. However, partial dentures can restore rows in different parts of the mouth. Dental bridges are best for a single row of lost teeth.
Can I receive implants if I already have a dental bridge or denture?
Yes, we encourage patients to contact our office if they would like to try dental implant treatment. We can provide implants for patients who already have a removable dental bridge or denture. Our team will provide patients with a temporary restoration as their implants heal. Then, we can attach the bridge or denture to the implants.
