Do you have missing or damaged teeth? Many adults in the U.S. have tooth damage or have lost teeth from a variety of conditions.
The Dental Spa of Indianapolis offers patients treatment options that restore teeth for a more uniform and natural-looking appearance. But how do people lose or damage their teeth in the first place?
Causes of Tooth Damage and Loss
There are several common causes of tooth damage and eventual loss:
- Teeth Grinding (Bruxism)
- Tooth Decay
- Gum Disease
- Smoking and Tobacco Use
- Poor Oral Hygiene
Restorative Dentistry Treatments
Before treatment, Dr. Amy Marckese-Braun will conduct a comprehensive assessment of your oral health and the condition of your teeth. Then your teeth may be treated in one of these ways:
For this procedure, a titanium post is surgically inserted to the jaw bone to replace a missing tooth. If a tooth needs to be extracted, then it is extracted before the implant procedure. People often forget they have dental implants because they look and feel like a natural tooth.
Dental Crowns and Bridges
Porcelain dental crowns cover damaged teeth and improve the strength, durability, and function of teeth. Bridges are used to fill in gaps between teeth, connecting dental crowns or implants to ensure that they remain in place.
There are three types of dentures that Dental Spa offers: partial, full, or implant dentures. Partial dentures are similar to dental bridges because they replace several missing teeth. Full dentures are utilized when a patient is missing their upper or lower arch of teeth. Implant dentures are permanently attached and secured by dental implants.
Dental Spa also offers Temporomandibular Joint therapy. For patients with facial and jaw pain, Dr. Marckese-Braun creates a custom-fit oral appliance that keeps the jaw and teeth in place. The appliance also prevents the further wear and tear of teeth that is often a symptom of TMJ.
