Restorative DentistryRestorative dentistry focuses on treatment of diseases and conditions of the mouth that effect the function and aesthetic appearance of teeth. There are many restorative dentistry procedures offered by our dentist in Glendale that cover dental problems ranging from gum disease to tooth loss.
Dental implants allow a person who has a missing tooth to replace it with a realistic looking prosthetic tooth. Our Glendale dentist places a titanium screw and then attaches a replacement tooth to the post. In addition to the aesthetic benefit of implants, they also help prevent gum recession and bone loss.
Root canal therapy is a type of restorative dentistry that involves a procedure to remove the pulp tissue inside a root canal, the cavity inside a tooth. Root canal therapy is performed to save a tooth that is infected, or is at great risk for infection. The cavity is filled with a core buildup and the procedure is completed with the placement of a permanent filling or crown.
Periodontal disease is a gum disease that, when left untreated, can lead to tooth loss. The gums swell and pockets may form between the gums and teeth that can collect debris and become infected. Periodontal disease can be prevented by effective plaque control, but in severe cases surgery may be required. Our restorative dentist in Glendale may perform a gingivectomy which removes and reshapes the diseased gum tissue. A flap procedure is used to repair damage to the bone from gum disease and cleans the roots of teeth. If the tooth is beyond repair, tooth extraction may be the only form of treatment possible.
With the help of our Glendale restorative dentist, you can treat your diseased or damaged teeth, and replace the missing ones, therefore restoring your teeth and maintaining a natural looking, stunning smile.

Porcelain veneers can help improve the appearance of cracked, crooked or stained teeth. Deep, dark stains, such as Tetracycline teeth stains, can't be effectively erased by whitening or bleaching and require veneers for successful treatment. The veneers are custom-fitted by our Glendale restorative dentist to the surface of a tooth and can give the instant appearance of straighter, whitened teeth.
Dentures are removable devices that replace some, or all, of a patient's natural teeth. They may be made from plastic or porcelain prosthetic teeth and may be placed right after the removal of natural teeth, like immediate dentures, or after the gums have healed from the removal of teeth, as in the case of conventional dentures.
If you have lost or damaged your teeth, there are different options offered by our restorative dentist in Glendale that can fix the problem. Just contact our dentist for an appointment to find out about these options.
