Protecting Your Smile with Dental Restorations - Edmonton, AB Family Dentistry
Following dental emergencies, or in cases where decay and routine wear have compromised teeth, restorative dental treatments such as crowns, bridges, and dentures are critical elements of preventing further damage. In Edmonton, Dr. Derek Fika and his team offer a number of dental restoration options for patients of all ages. By tailoring unique treatment options to our patients’ smiles, our Edmonton dentist is able to restore your smile’s health, function, and aesthetics.
What are Dental Restorations?
While preventive dental care, such as the implementation of an at-home oral health strategy and frequent visits to the dentist for cleaning and evaluation are helpful in reducing oral problems, damage to teeth does occur in some instances, compromising the health of your entire smile.
Restorative dental care is designed to restore function to teeth, reinforcing their physical strength and durability to help patients regain their natural oral function. Common restoration options include composite fillings, porcelain crowns, bridges, partial dentures, and full dentures.
While restorative dental care strives to save as much natural tooth structure as possible, in certain cases severe damage requires more extensive action in order to protect the patient’s overall oral health. In these instances, full mouth rehabilitation may be needed to restore health and function. Severely damaged teeth may need to be extracted and restored with bridges or, in collaboration with an oral surgeon, dental implants can be used to replace one or more individual teeth with crowns and bridges, or a complete arch with dentures.
Dental Restorations in Edmonton
At Dr. Derek Fika Family Dentistry, our mission is to help patients achieve their ideal smile and optimal oral health through dental treatments tailored to their unique smile. When recommending dental restorations, our Edmonton dentist will evaluate the condition of your smile as a whole and determine the cause of your current dental problem. By developing a comprehensive treatment plan that improves the entire health and function of your smile, while preventing further oral problems from damaging the dentition, Dr. Fika and his team are able to help all patients enjoy beautiful, long-lasting smiles.
We recognize that some patients may require more in-depth treatments, such as extraction, bone grafting, or dental implant placement in order to restore their smiles. For these patients, our dental practice works closely with local dental professionals to develop multi-dimensional treatment plans that address all parts of their smiles.
