At Dr. Farid Shodjaee in Ottawa, we offer a full range of restorative dental services including fillings, bridges, crowns, dentures, gum therapy, and TMJ treatment.
What is Restorative Dental Care?
Restorative dental care covers any procedure with the goal of restoring your smile's normal function and appearance.
By fixing structural issues such as missing or damaged teeth, our dentists can help restore your smile – and your overall oral health.
Depending on the issue you are experiencing, dentists at Dr. Farid Shodjaee will diagnose a problem and determine which restorative treatment option is right for you.
These porcelain caps are placed atop teeth to help restore their appearance and function. Crowns are used to cover dental implants, attach bridges or prevent a cracked tooth from further deteriorating. They can also help to restore a stained or discoloured tooth to its natural appearance.
Bridges are bonded to dental implants or existing teeth to replace a section of missing teeth. These natural-looking, custom-made tooth replacements are barely noticeable to the naked eye and can restore the natural contour of your teeth, as well as the bite between upper and lower teeth.
Composite (tooth-coloured) fillings are used to repair a cavity or tooth damage, such as a crack. The fillings provided at Dr. Farid Shodjaee can take moderate pressure from the continual stress of chewing. They can be used on both front and back teeth.
Full & Partial Dentures
Dentures are artificial teeth. They replace one missing tooth or several consecutive teeth (partial dentures), or an entire jaw of missing teeth (full dentures). They help patients with missing teeth keep their facial structure, and speak and eat correctly.
Inlays & Onlays
These tooth-coloured porcelain fillings repair cavities when damage is too severe for a standard dental filling. Inlays and onlays are custom-made in a dental laboratory and are then permanently affixed to the tooth as a single piece.
During a root canal, your dentist removes diseased nerves, tissues and blood vessels from the inside of a tooth. By eliminating bacteria and decay, your dentist can help end the spread of infection and prevent the need for an extraction in the future.
Periodontal (Gum) Therapy
Gum disease can infect the tissues of the mouth, including the gums, alveolar bone, cementum, gingiva, and periodontal ligament. If the disease is detected early, non-surgical preventive therapy will be recommended.
This can include a combination of scaling and root planing to treat the condition. Otherwise, treatment will depend on the severity and type of disease.
TMJ Disorder Treatment
The temporomandibular joint (or TMJ) is a hinge that joins your jaw to the temporal bones of your skull. The disorder of this joint can lead to several issues with your jaw and the muscles in your face, including painful symptoms.
Our dentists can test for, diagnose and provide a treatment plan for TMJ Disorder. Therapeutic treatment can reduce dizziness, headaches and pain.
