Rochester NY Restorative Dentistry
When even one of your teeth becomes severely decayed or damaged it can effect more than your appearance, it can affect your self-esteem and with time possibly your speech and even limit your diet. At the Rochester, NY, dental office of Stephen Ruchlin, DDS, we can help restore your teeth to their natural form and function.
Restorative dentistry refers to the various ways we can replace or restore missing teeth or teeth that have suffered from decay, fracture or injury. Our restorative services include:
Fillings are a restoration that repairs part of a damaged or decayed tooth and can be color-matched to look completely natural.
Often called caps, ceramic crowns offer strength and protection and act as an artificial tooth that covers your natural tooth.
Dental Bridge or Dental Partial
A combination of crowns and artificial teeth that anchor to your existing teeth that closes the gap from a missing tooth or teeth.
Dental implants are medical devices that replace the root portion of a missing tooth. An abutment connected to the implant supports the replacement tooth or teeth (also known as dental implant crowns).
Mini Dental Implants
Mini dental implants are more slender than regular implants and are typically used to stabilize a removable denture or temporary tooth replacement.
When all of your lower or upper teeth are missing, replacing missing teeth with a denture may be a solution to benefit your appearance and your health.
Root Canal Treatment
Root canal treatment can help save your teeth. Treatment consists of removing the injured or infected pulp (the soft tissue that contains blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue) of your tooth.
Implant Supported Dentures
Implant-based dentures are supported by and attached to dental implants. This helps your denture fit securely and comfortably.
