Restorative Dentistry in Bountiful, UT
Restorative dentistry services are any of our services that improve the functionality and health of your smile. When you have damaged or missing teeth, your smile quickly deteriorates and it can be harder to enjoy your favorite foods and drinks. Additionally, if you experience jaw pain or infected gums, it can be extremely distracting and difficult to feel confident with your smile. That’s why we offer a comprehensive list of restorative dental services, including:
Dental implants are the premier way to replace a missing tooth. With a dental implant, every piece of your tooth is replaced from the root to the crown. That means that you get the functionality that stems from jawbone support while also the aesthetics of a natural tooth.
Dental crowns allow you to keep the foundational structure of your existing tooth while also gaining the aesthetic and functional benefits of a prosthetic tooth. This means that if your tooth is severely cracked or chipped, a tooth crown can restore it back to being as good as new without requiring full tooth extraction.
Dental bridges are a method of replacing missing teeth through the support of surrounding teeth. The prosthetic tooth is supported by the surrounding teeth instead of being surgically fused with your jawbone like a dental implant. Dental implants are great for patients looking to replace several consecutive missing teeth.
Dentures and Partials
For patients looking to replace a full arch of teeth, we offer dentures and partials. Dentures and partials allow patients to regain the lifestyle they once had with a full set of teeth. Our dentures are customized to your smile to prevent slippage and discomfort.
Periodontal Disease Treatment
Gum disease is an extremely common dental concern. Because of this, patients may need to restore their gums after infection with periodontal disease treatment. Dr. Larsen can help you get rid of diseased soft tissue and rebuild stronger, healthier gums.
There is a wide range of reasons a patient might experience jaw pain. TMJ disorders are common for patients who experience pain near the temporomandibular joint of their jaw. If this is the case, Dr. Larsen can help relieve your jaw pain through a number of TMJ treatment options like oral appliance therapy.
