Restorative Dentistry in Greer, SC
Our restorative dental solutions help patients get their smiles back and make life more comfortable:
A dental bridge is a prosthetic best suited for patients with multiple missing teeth in a row. There are three types of dental bridges: traditional, cantilever, and Maryland bridges. Each type of bridge comes with its different benefits. We can help patients choose which type of bridge works best for their needs.
Tooth crowns are porcelain ceramic caps that can be used to cover dental implants, tooth damage, and discoloration. Dental crowns are durable and look just like natural teeth. This is because they can be color-matched to blend in with the natural tooth enamel.
Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically inserted into empty tooth sockets. They can be used to replace single missing teeth or support dental bridges and dentures. Using dental implants to restore missing teeth provides longer-lasting and healthier results for our patients.
Dentures and Partials
Dr. Carraway provides full and partial dentures to patients with arches and rows of lost teeth. Just like dental bridges, dentures can be secured by dental implants. Compared to removable dentures, implant-secured dentures make it easier for patients to eat and speak comfortably.
Gum Disease Treatment
Periodontitis, or gum disease, is not only a common oral health problem but a truly damaging one. What can begin as gum irritation and inflammation may quickly lead to gum recession and bone loss. We can help prevent gum disease from ever occurring with periodontal screenings and routine cleanings.
Temporomandibular joint disorders can cause jaw pain and dysfunction, as well as chronic headaches and bruxism. Dr. Carraway helps patients manage these symptoms and repair their smiles at Carraway Family and Cosmetic Dentistry. Stopping TMJ disorders at the source and treating the damage done to the teeth and jaw makes life more comfortable for patients with TMJ.
Restorative Dental FAQs
Read answers to common questions about restorative dentistry to learn more specifics about these treatments:
How long do dental implants last?
Dental implants are permanent restorations for single missing teeth or whole arches of lost teeth. They are meant to last forever. This is because they are surgically inserted into the jawbone and fuse to the bone for the most secure and durable results possible. Implants are titanium posts covered by dental crowns, which not only look like natural teeth but provide additional strength to the implant.
What are dental crowns made of?
Dental crowns are crafted from porcelain ceramic. Porcelain ceramic is a versatile material that withstands the forces of biting and chewing like natural teeth. Our dental crowns also blend in with the color of natural teeth. We shade match crowns for a natural-looking result.
Can you reverse gum disease?
Early signs of gum disease including gum bleeding and swelling can be treated with antibacterial rinses and deep cleaning. For patients with severe gum disease, we may refer them to an oral surgeon for surgery. These treatments can help reverse gum disease and even prevent periodontitis from occurring in the first place.
