At Canmore Dental Centre, we offer a full range of restorative dental services including fillings, crowns, bridges, therapeutic Botox, and TMJ treatment.
What is Restorative Dental Care?
Restorative dental care includes any procedure that aims to return normal function and appearance to your smile.
By repairing structural problems such as damaged or missing teeth, Dr. Maier or Dr. Phillips can help restore your smile – and your oral health.
Our dentists at Canmore Dental Centre will thoroughly access your oral health to determine which restorative treatment options are right for you.
A dental implant is a small titanium screw that functions like a natural tooth root and is capped with a tooth replacement. Our dentists use dental implants as a natural-looking way to replace missing teeth. An implant, together with a tooth replacement such as a crown or bridge, can help to restore the function and appearance of your smile.
Botox® is a purified protein that can be used in dentistry. When injected into the facial muscles, it releases neurotoxins, preventing the muscles from contracting and helping them to relax. Using Botox, Dr. Phillips can help treat jaw pain and headaches and provide relief from issues such as jaw clenching and teeth grinding.
Crowns are porcelain or ceramic caps that are used to restore a tooth's shape, appearance and function. You may need a crown if you have a root canal, a large filling or a broken/fractured tooth, or as a final restoration on an implant. A tooth that has been fixed with a crown looks and works very much like a natural tooth.
A dental bridge is a natural-looking tooth replacement that is bonded to existing teeth or dental implants to replace a section of missing teeth. Each bridge is custom-made to match your natural teeth and can restore the natural contour of teeth and the bite between upper and lower teeth.
At Canmore Dental Centre, we use composite (tooth-coloured) fillings to repair a cavity or tooth damage, like a crack. These fillings are barely noticeable and can withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing, and can be used on front and back teeth.
Inlays & Onlays
Inlays and onlays are tooth-coloured porcelain fillings used to repair cavities when the damage to the tooth is too extensive for a standard dental filling. These custom-made restorations are fabricated in a dental laboratory, then permanently cemented to the tooth as a single piece.
TMJ Disorder Treatment
The temporomandibular joint (or TMJ) is a hinge that connects your jaw to the temporal bones of your skull. The disorder of this joint can lead to a host of issues with your jaw and facial muscles, including headaches and popping or cracking sounds while eating and speaking. Our dentists can diagnose and provide a treatment plan for TMJ Disorder.
A root canal is a procedure where diseased blood vessels, nerves and tissues are removed from the interior of a tooth. Removing the decay and bacteria from the tooth can help halt the spread of infection and prevent the need for an extraction.
