At Interlake Dental Centre in Selkirk, we offer a full range of restorative dental services including fillings, bridges, crowns, dentures, gum therapy, and TMJ treatment.
What is Restorative Dental Care?
Any procedure which aims to restore the normal function and appearance of your smile is considered restorative dental care.
By fixing structural problems such as missing or damaged teeth, our dentists can help restore your smile - and your oral health.
Depending on your issue, the dentists at Interlake Dental Centre will determine the right restorative treatment option for you.
Dental Crowns & Bridges
Crowns are caps made of porcelain or gold that can help to restore a discoloured or stained tooth to its natural appearance. Placed on top of teeth to restore function and appearance, crowns can be used to cover dental implants, prevent a cracked tooth from further deteriorating or attach bridges.
These custom-made, natural-looking tooth replacements are bonded to existing teeth or dental implants to replace a section of missing teeth. They can restore the bite between upper and lower teeth, as well as the natural contour of teeth.
At Interlake Dental Centre, fillings are used to repair cavities or tooth damage such as cracks. Composite (tooth-coloured) fillings are popular for their durability and natural appearance. They can be used on both front and back teeth. Silver amalgam fillings are even more durable - making them less likely to break than other materials - and typically reserved for back teeth.
Inlays & Onlays
Sometimes, damage is too severe for a standard dental filling to be effective but not extensive enough to require a dental crown. That's where inlays and onlays come in. These tooth-coloured porcelain fillings are custom-made in a dental laboratory, then used to repair cavities. They are permanently cemented to the tooth.
Diseased blood vessels, nerves and tissues need to be removed from the interior of a tooth to prevent further dental issues. To accomplish this, your dentist performs a root canal. By removing bacteria and decay, the spread of infection is stopped, preventing the need for an extraction.
Dentures are artificial teeth used to replace one missing tooth or several consecutive teeth (partial dentures), or an entire jaw of missing teeth (full dentures). They enable patients with missing teeth to maintain their facial structure, and to speak and chew properly.
Periodontal (Gum) Therapy
Gum disease can infect the tissues of the mouth, including the gingiva, gums, alveolar bone, periodontal ligament and cementum. If the disease is detected in its 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) is a hinge joining your jaw to your skull's temporal bones. Disorder in this joint can cause a host of issues with your jaw and facial muscles, including painful symptoms. Our dentists can detect, diagnose and create a treatment plan for TMJ Disorder.
