Our Mill Valley Dentists Offer Treatments To Achieve Restorative Results

Written by Dr. McConnell on Apr 14, 2020

Don’t let dental damage keep you from enjoying optimal oral health. Our Mill Valley dentists provide state-of-the-art restorative care to help you love your smile again. In this article, we are going to be reviewing three restorative options in particular. Let’s get started…

Dental restorations

When a tooth becomes infected, our dental team has to remove the affected dental material in order to keep it from spreading. Teeth, unlike other parts of our bodies, do not have the ability to heal and regenerate. So, once we have cleared away damaged tissues, our dental team will rebuild missing tooth portions with composite resin, or customized crowns. Once we place these restorations, your tooth will look whole and healthy, and function normally. 

Gum disease treatment

Your gum tissue is the foundation of your smile. Unfortunately, your gums can be infected by the same harmful oral bacteria that cause cavities. Gum disease causes oral tissues to swell, bleed, and pull away from the tooth structure. Our goal in treatment is to remove damaged portions of your gums, and then support the oral healing process. Severe gum damage may necessitate gum tissue grafts to build up missing tissue. 

Dental implants

The dental implant is the most advanced, state-of-the-art tooth replacement available in dentistry today. Dental implants can be used individually to replace single teeth, or in conjunction with larger prostheses to increase their stability and effectiveness. The thing that sets a dental implant apart from a denture or a bridge is the titanium implant root that extends into the patient’s jawbone, holding the restoration in place permanently.

No matter what your smile looks like today, our Mill Valley dentists can help you achieve and maintain optimal oral health for years to come. The best way to get started is to schedule a consultation with our team. During this appointment, we will be able to assess the current state of your smile and provide you with some personalized recommendations on how to move forward.
