Restorative Dentistry in La Jolla CA

Part of taking proper care of your teeth is restoring them to working condition. When teeth become damaged they need to be repaired to avoid further damage. If left alone teeth will become damaged beyond repair and can cause damage to neighboring teeth.

If you want the perfect smile, look into cosmetic dentistry.

Bridges
When tooth loss becomes an issue you can rest assures that we at La Jolla Dental have got you covered. Tooth loss can lead to some oral health issues that you just don’t want to deal with, so when you lose a tooth, or are faced with tooth loss it’s important that you consider tooth replacement. Dental bridges are a permanent tooth replacement option that offer patients the ability to live their life as they would before tooth loss.

Crowns
If you have a tooth that broke severely and cannot simply be filled up with a filling, or is cracked and likely to continue breaking with normal use, a dental crown may be the perfect solution. A crown is basically like a cap for a broken or a damaged tooth. The dentist will grind down the tooth, and a cap will be created to fit over what is left of the tooth. Then you will be able to eat and use your tooth like normal.

Dental Implants
Missing teeth cause more problems than just an uneven smile. When you lose an adult tooth, the surrounding teeth are suddenly missing important support and structure. Your remaining teeth will begin to shift over time to close the gap caused by the missing tooth, and often become crooked or leave gaps between them. This can cause your teeth to become unstable, and therefore weaker. Not to mention, when the root of your tooth is gone, the bone where the tooth once was can begin to deteriorate.

Dentures
There are different types of dentures, but they share their common function. They replace teeth that have become loose or been lost due to bone loss. When bone loss around the roots of teeth is great enough to loosen them or let them fall out, it's time for dentures. Relax. No one enjoys losing their natural teeth, but you can still eat and talk regularly.

Root Canal Therapy
At La Jolla Dental, we can help our patients save a tooth from extraction through a process called Root Canal Therapy. Though this treatment commonly causes a patient to groan, it is the most effective way to relieve pain, rid infection, and save the natural tooth structure. James Strother, DDS, can help, he can remove the contaminated material and restore your tooth to health.
