Brush your teeth? Check. Floss? Check. Visit the dentist twice a year for regular checkups? Check. Even if you’ve always been conscientious about taking of your teeth, there comes a time for most people when some type restorative dentistry is required. At the office of Dr. Anna Willison in Dallas, TX, we offer several types of restorative dentistry procedures to keep your smile whole and healthy.
If you are missing one or more teeth, the most natural replacement is a dental implant. These modern dental wonders emulate not only the crown of a missing tooth, but the root as well. Dr. Willison implants a titanium post in your jawbone and this becomes the “root” of your new tooth. Then, once the bone and post have fused, she places a custom designed restorative crown on top of the post for the most natural look.
When you have decay, the importance of a dental filling cannot be under-estimated. Without repair, decay can lead to much more serious problems, such as the need for a root canal or even tooth extraction. Dr. Willison uses tooth-colored composite resins for dental fillings. These are strong and have the added advantage of blending in seamlessly with the natural shading of your other teeth.
For a tooth that is severely cracked, or to protect a tooth that has undergone root canal therapy, Dr. Willison offers all-ceramic crowns. These crowns, also called caps, are designed to fully encapsulate a damaged tooth. The crown not only protects the remaining tooth structure, it also restores the tooth’s functionality.
Root Canal Therapy
Toothaches are sometimes caused by an infection deep inside a tooth. In this case, Dr. Willison uses root canal therapy to remove the debris and infection inside the tooth. Then, the remaining tooth is outfitted with a crown to restore its function and appearance.
