Restorative dentistry may not sound like the most exciting thing in the world, but trust us, it can be a real lifesaver (or should we say, tooth saver). Plus, who doesn’t love a good before-and-after transformation? The area of dentistry is an integral part of dental care that aims to restore teeth to their natural state—both in terms of function and appearance. Fortunately, with the help of modern dental techniques and technology, restorative dentistry can address a wide range of dental issues, giving you a healthy and beautiful smile once again.
At Queen Anne Hilltop Dental, we offer a comprehensive range of restorative dentistry services to help you achieve optimal oral health and a radiant smile. Read below or contact our Seattle, WA office to learn more about our restorative services!
We know it can be tough to smile when you’re missing teeth, but don’t worry, we’ve got your back—or your teeth, rather. At Queen Anne Hilltop Dental, we offer complete and partial dentures that can give you the confidence you need to smile, laugh, and eat your favorite foods again. Our dentures are custom-made to fit your mouth, so you can say goodbye to slipping, sliding, and discomfort.
- Our complete dentures are a full set prosthetic that replaces all your missing teeth, while our partial dentures are perfect for filling in the gaps left by a few missing teeth.
Along with complete and partial dentures, we also offer both conventional and immediate options to further diversify the prosthetics; while conventional dentures are made after the remaining teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has healed, immediate dentures are made in advance and can be placed immediately after the teeth are removed.
Our team will work with you to determine the best type of denture to meet your needs and provide you with the support and guidance you need throughout the entire process.
Sometimes, it may be necessary to remove a tooth due to decay, damage, or other dental issues. At Queen Anne Hilltop Dental, we know the thought of getting a tooth extracted can be nerve-wracking, but don’t worry, we won’t be using any medieval methods! We perform tooth extractions using careful, gentle techniques to ensure the best possible experience for our patients. Plus, our team will provide you with personalized aftercare instructions to ensure that you heal properly and quickly.
We know, the words “root canal” can be intimidating to even the bravest of patients, but fear has no place in this dental office! Our team is on a mission to make the entire process as easy and comfortable as can be through careful preparation and gentle treatment.
Root canal therapy is a common dental procedure used to treat an infected tooth or one severely compromised by decay or damage. During the procedure, the damaged or infected pulp is removed, and the tooth is cleaned and sealed to prevent further infection. By treating a root canal, discomfort can quickly be relieved, and a tooth extraction can be successfully avoided.
Gum Disease Treatment
Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is a bacterial infection that affects the tissues that surround and support your teeth. It’s caused by a buildup of plaque, which is a sticky film of bacteria that forms on your teeth.
When plaque is not removed through brushing and flossing, it can harden into tartar, which is much harder to remove and can only be removed by a dental professional. Tartar buildup can lead to inflammation, recession, and infection of the gums—ultimately leading to tooth and bone deterioration.
At Queen Anne Hilltop Dental, we offer gum disease treatments that remove stubborn plaque and tartar to restore your gum health. Our team will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan to address your unique needs and ensure that your gums remain healthy and strong.
Overall, restorative dentistry isn’t just about fixing your teeth—it’s about improving your quality of life! With a healthy and beautiful smile, you’ll be able to eat all your favorite foods, speak with confidence, and experience the sense of normalcy that comes with a complete smile. At Queen Anne Hilltop Dental, we’re not just restoring teeth, we’re restoring happiness. So let’s get started—your beautiful, healthy smile is waiting for you!
