Park City dentist Dr. Kent Johnson offers a wide variety of restorative dentistry procedures to his patients. Restorative dentistry is performed to treat issues relating to the health and function of your teeth and smile.
Issues corrected by restorative dentistry include the treatment and repair of:
- Broken, damaged, or decayed teeth
- Missing teeth and any resulting shifting of remaining teeth
- Infected gums
- Damaged or infected tissue in your mouth
Restorative dentistry is also an ideal solution to treat neuromuscular dentistry issues related to the alignment of your jaw, such as TMJ/TMD treatment.
Restorative Dentistry Procedures
Dr. Johnson offers the following restorative dentistry procedures to help you achieve optimal levels of oral health:
- Dental implants are an ideal solution to replace missing teeth. Dental implants are permanently inserted into your jaw and function as a replacement root as well, providing a durable, long lasting solution to your problem.
- Dental crowns are used to provide protection to severely damaged or decayed teeth. Dental crowns strengthen the tooth and reinforce the jaw.
- Neuromuscular dentistry Neuromuscular dentistry is a specialized area of dentistry which focuses on correcting alignment issues with your jaw and bite. Often, a misaligned jaw, regular teeth grinding, and other related issues can place a great deal of stress on your temporomandibular joint (TMJ) , resulting in a condition called temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD). Neuromuscular dentistry can help alleviate the pain associated with TMD and realign your jaw in order to prevent the development of other associated oral health issues down the road.
- Full mouth reconstruction is performed when you are suffering from several severe oral health issues at once. Your full mouth reconstruction will help restore the health and function of your smile while providing an aesthetically pleasing result.
- Periodontal treatment is performed to restore the health of your gums when you suffer from gum disease. Depending on the severity of your condition, Dr. Johnson may recommend surgical or non-surgical options to treat swollen, tender, or bleeding gums.
