Among the many services we offer at Q Dental, restorative services are some of the most important. Let’s explore some of the restorative dental treatments we offer at our Champaign office.
When your tooth is severely fractured or decayed, a crown may be the best option to restore it to its former size, shape, and function. Manufactured from durable porcelain material, a crown fits perfectly over your damaged tooth, protecting it from any future damage.
Cosmetically speaking, crowns are a great way to repair your smile and are a routine procedure offered in our office at Q Dental. Crowns can also be used in conjunction with dental implants or bridges.
Another common procedure our team offers is fillings. Perhaps the most widely-known aspect of restorative dentistry, fillings are placed into the tooth after any decay has been removed. They provide a long-lasting solution to cavities.
Completing the procedure usually takes less than 30 minutes under localized anesthesia, and your filling will combat any decay from the start. This is why dental checkups are so important. The earlier a cavity is detected, the easier it is to fix. In installing fillings, our goal is to restore your natural smile while preventing future issues with your oral health.
When you don’t catch a cavity early enough, the tooth decay can progress to a point where a root canal is a necessary course of action. Infection can also be caused by trauma. In these cases of severe infection, the dentist will perform a root canal to preserve the remaining tooth.
Root canals remove dead tissue and harmful bacteria from the affected area, and provide a less-severe alternative to tooth extraction.
If, however, a tooth cannot be saved, our team will take the utmost care and attention with the extraction procedure. Besides decay, extractions may be necessary to remove extra teeth or make room for teeth that will be shifted by braces, among other reasons.
In cases where extraction is necessary, the dentist will extract the tooth from its socket once you are completely comfortable under local anesthesia. You will then be advised of recovery protocols and can begin to heal.
In addition to our other services, we also offer orthodontics for all ages to correct crooked teeth and misaligned bites. Along with moving your teeth into a more comfortable and attractive position, orthodontics can improve your oral health and provide you with a beautiful smile that lasts a lifetime.
In order to achieve the desired effects, our team at Q Dental looks carefully at each case before determining how to proceed. Orthodontics can be an expensive and time-consuming process, so we are dedicated to providing you with the best care possible. One of the best parts of orthodontia is its ability to prevent all kinds of potential future issues while restoring your beautiful smile.
Restorative dental work can be necessary when your mouth is not functioning at full capacity. If any of the above treatments are necessary to better the function of your teeth and mouth, our team will use its years of expertise to implement these treatments as is fit for each individual patient.
