Restorative Dentistry

Restorative dentistry refers to the management of oral health problems that affect the teeth, gums, tissues, and overall structure of your mouth. Dr. Elizabeth Kilpatrick-Fox offers the following restorative dentistry procedures to her patients to help restore the natural functionality of their mouths.

Restorative Dentistry Procedures:

Periodontal Therapy

Periodontal therapy is used to treat periodontal disease. Also known as gum disease, it is a very serious oral disorder that can lead to tooth loss, tissue and bone damage, and even abscess formation. At our office, we have surgical and non-surgical procedures available depending on the condition of the patient. Read more here.

Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy is used to treat infection in the center of the tooth, which is known as the pulp. The pain associated with this issue is often unbearable and requires immediate root canal treatment. Thankfully, Dr. Fox has the experience and skills to handle this for you. Read more here.

Crowns and Bridgework

Crowns are artificial caps that sit over your damaged or decayed teeth in order to protect them and add to the beauty of your smile in the most natural way possible. On the other hand, bridges are a combination of two or more crowns where the missing tooth is replaced by a false tooth and supported by crowns on the teeth adjacent to it. Read more here.

Inlays and Onlays

Inlays or onlays are a special kind of dental restoration. We may recommend them to patients who cannot opt for dental fillings and dental crowns, which are the main solutions for decayed teeth . Inlays are bonded to the center of the tooth while onlays cover the surface of the tooth or multiple points. Read more here.

Mercury Free and Tooth Colored Fillings

Tooth colored dental fillings are used to control tooth decay as well as restore the functionality of damaged teeth. These natural-looking fillings also improve the appearance and beauty of the tooth. Since they are also mercury free, they are a good option for children as well as patients who are allergic to this metal. Read more here.
