If you have worn down teeth, damaged teeth, chipped or cracked teeth, or even missing teeth, these dental concerns can affect both the beauty and function of your smile. These kinds of issues can also significantly impact your quality of life and over-all health.
Restoring function and cosmetic appeal to your smile begins with an appropriate diagnosis and treatment plan by our dentist in Annapolis, MD. Each patient case is different and unique. Annapolis dentist Dr. Sheen will only recommend restorative dental procedures and treatment options that would be beneficial to your needs and that will satisfy your cosmetic goals.
Through advanced dental technology, top quality materials, and state-of-the-art techniques, Dr. Sheen can restore your self-confidence and the natural beauty of your smile.
Improper alignment of jaw joints, facial muscles, and teeth can make smiling an embarrassing gesture for anyone. The good news is that modern restorative dentistry can reverse the negative effects of dental deterioration caused by trauma, life circumstances, and even substandard dental work.
Dr. Sheen can provide comprehensive care for complex dental concerns related to the function of the bite such as TMJ disorders.
Restorative Dentistry Treatments
At your consultation, Dr. Sheen will do a thorough examination and will ask you what your goals and desires are pertaining to your smile. He will then discuss the available options and recommend the treatments he feels will help you attain these goals.
Your treatment plan will be customized to you and your unique needs and will fit within your budget. The restorative dentistry services we offer at Annapolis Center for Dental Health & Wellness that will help bring back your natural smile include:
Dental Bridge – A dental bridge is a restoration that is used to “bridge” a gap between teeth. The bridgework is a series of prosthetic teeth linked together and supported by an anchor on either side of the gap.
Dental Implants – A dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically implanted into the jaw bone beneath the gum line. This titanium post will act as the tooth root providing a strong foundation for a dental restoration. For patients missing a single tooth, the implant will support a dental crown. For patients missing several consecutive teeth, multiple implants will support a dental bridge.
Even if you are missing an entire arch of teeth, multiple implants can support a full denture. Dental implants offer the most durable and natural solution for patients with damaged or missing teeth.
Dentures & Partials – A denture is a set of false teeth that used to be the only option for patients missing most or all of their teeth. They are made in a dental lab with impressions of your mouth. Dentures are made up of a base that is typically made of acrylic resin and metal that will rest on your gums.
The teeth portion are attached to the base and typically made of plastic or porcelain but can differ depending on quality, color and size.
TMJ Therapy – TMJ disorder, or TMD, is a catch all term for a wide variety of potential issues affecting the jaw joint, muscles in the face, neck, and surrounding nerves. TMJ disorder can cause some people a lot of pain in their jaw joints and the surrounding muscles. We offer therapy to help our patients from relief from painful TMJ symptoms.
