Do You Need Restorative Dentistry Services?

Restorative dentistry in Brooklyn NY focuses on replacing and repairing missing or damaged teeth. Our goal at Sconzo and Sciascia General, Family & Cosmetic Dentistry is always to save natural teeth whenever possible. If a tooth or teeth is beyond saving, we will present you with several tooth replacement options as part of our restorative dentistry services.

Common Restorative Dentistry Procedures

Dental fillings restore teeth with mild to moderate decay. Dr. Sconzo and Dr. Sciascia use standard filling materials in this situation. When tooth decay is extensive, they may need to place inlays, onlays, or a dental crown.

Dental crowns

Crowns fit over a back chewing tooth to provide extra support. Common reasons for placing a crown include chips, cracks, tooth decay, and chronic pain or infection. Without a crown in place, your tooth could crack further or become infected. You also need strong teeth to withstand the force of chewing multiple times a day throughout your lifespan.

Implants or dentures

Dental implants consist of a small titanium post that sits below your gum line to support the new artificial tooth and an abutment to attach the most to the artificial tooth. Dentures are removable retainer-like devices that can be either partial or full.

Root canal therapy

The pulp inside your tooth can become infected if bacteria get into the small space, which can occur due to a small crack. A root canal removes diseased pulp, allowing your tooth to function normally again. You may also receive a crown to guard against future infections.
