Restorative Dentistry in Fleming Island, FL
Our restorative dentistry services help patients revitalize their smiles for better oral health. These restorative dental treatments include:
A dental bridge closes the gap left by one or multiple missing teeth. While a traditional dental bridge uses natural teeth for support, we can provide implant-secured dental bridges that stabilize restorations in the mouth. Implant-supported bridges often last longer than traditional bridges and do not require tooth preparation.
Dental crowns are caps that cover single teeth. Crowns can protect worn and broken teeth or cover implant restorations. Dr. Verville can design and fabricate dental crowns in a single day using E4D crowns and CAD/CAM technology. Using this technology, patients can receive same-day dental crowns.
A single dental implant is a stable, lasting restoration made of a titanium screw, abutment, and crown. We surgically place implants in the jaw bone to support a dental restoration and replace missing teeth at the root. Dental implants can prevent problems like facial sagging, speech issues, and bone retention.
Dentures & Partials
We provide partial dentures for patients with rows of missing teeth and complete dentures to replace full arches of teeth. Unlike traditional removable dentures, dentures secured with dental implants can renew the full bite function.
Gum Disease Treatment
Periodontitis, or gum disease, causes problems in gum health, including inflammation, bleeding, and receded gums. Gum disease can also cause oral health problems by allowing the oral bacteria in gum disease to enter the bloodstream. Patients with gum disease are more likely to experience immune system issues and heart problems.
Temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD) create problems like teeth clenching and grinding, jaw pain, orofacial pain, and tooth wear. We treat TMD with custom-made nightguards. Patients can also benefit from Botox to relax their facial and jaw muscles.
Restorative Dental FAQs
Read answers to commonly asked questions about restorative dental care to learn more about your treatment options:
How long do dental crowns last?
With the right care, dental crowns can last 15 to 30 years. To care for dental crowns, use a soft-bristled toothbrush. Do not use whitening toothpaste that contains abrasives, as this can damage the crowns. Additionally, we recommend that patients with crowns visit the dentist regularly so we can keep track of their restoration and the health of their natural teeth and gums.
Do I need a dental bridge or denture?
A dental bridge is typically better for patients with one or two missing teeth. Partial dentures can restore rows of missing teeth in different parts of the mouth. Complete dentures replace full tooth arches, and we may recommend extractions for complete dentures if the last few teeth are not viable.
Are bleeding gums a sign of gum inflammation?
In most cases, you may have gingivitis if your gums bleed when you brush and floss your teeth. However, if you brush too aggressively or have something stuck between your teeth, you can also experience bleeding gums. To help combat gingivitis, continue to brush and floss daily. If bleeding persists, contact a dentist.
