Restorative Dentistry Montreal
A dental implant is surgically inserted into the bone of the jaw to replace the root of a missing tooth. An artificial tooth or crown is attached to the implant. You can receive a single implant for a dental crown, two or more for a bridge, and four or more for an implant-supported denture.
When it is past the turning point to save your teeth, usually because of gum disease or very poor dentition, you will need to remove your teeth and replace them with a denture. We offer immediate dentures, complete dentures, overdentures, and partial dentures.
A crown is a cap that covers and protects a tooth after breakage or cavities and helps add strength to the damaged tooth. It used to take two appointments to restore a tooth with a crown but now, with digital technology, a custom crafted crown can be designed in our office in less than one hour.
An infected tooth can be extremely painful and even be life threatening. To get rid of the infection, the tooth can be treated with root canal therapy to prevent the need for extraction. This conservative procedure consists in removing the infection and by filling the root canal to promote healing.
When plaque is allowed to build around the teeth, it can mineralize to become tartar, which causes gingivitis. Gingivitis is the first stage of gum disease. As gum disease worsens, the gum and the bone tissue are destroyed, and, without treatment, the teeth loosen and eventually fall out.
A dental bridge is a customized restoration made up of one or more artificial teeth to fill gaps left in your smile. If you have a gap in your smile, a bridge will close it to restore your oral function and your smile. Dr. Berbari can provide both traditional and implant-supported bridges.
