Restorative Dentistry in Prairie Village, KS
Restorative dentistry—as the name implies—is intended to restore your healthy and beautiful smile. Although you take care of your teeth and gums at home with daily brushing and flossing, and Dr. Cattaneo and his staff follow-up with the best in preventive dentistry, there usually comes a time when most people require some type of restorative treatment. In those instances, you can rest assured that our office offers a complete menu of restorative dentistry treatments for you or any member of your family.
Restorative Dental Solutions in Prairie Village, KS
Probably the most common dental problem we see is tooth decay, which causes dental caries, or what is usually called a cavity. If we find a cavity, whether by carefully using a dental probe and caries detecting liquid or on a digital x-ray, Dr. Cattaneo will want to treat with expediency in order to prevent the decay from further damaging the tooth or spreading to adjacent teeth. Today, cavities are filled with tooth-colored composite resin material, so there aren’t any dark spots in your smile. You’ll leave our office with a tooth that is functional and a smile that is strong, healthy and attractive.
Root canal is another restorative dental treatment used to preserve and repair a tooth that is damaged from either severe decay or a deep crack. In this case, the deepest layer of a tooth—the dental pulp and the attached root canals—become infected and the tooth begins to die. To save the tooth and avoid extraction, Dr. Cattaneo performs root canal therapy.
For patients who are missing teeth, we offer both crown and bridge treatment or implant dentistry to restore your smile. With a crown and bridge, Dr. Cattaneo attaches a crown to the teeth on either side of ones that are missing. These crowns support the prosthetic teeth that replace missing teeth. A dental implant is comprised of a titanium post that is surgically implanted in the jaw to support a custom-fitted crown.
