Restorative dentistry is designed to fix any problems you may have with your teeth, gum tissues, jaw, and bone structure. We may recommend a dental filling to correct instances of minor or moderate decay. If the damage is substantial, you may need a dental crown. A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that improves the function and aesthetics of the tooth. If the tooth is beyond saving, Dr. Teala Redlinger, DDS will perform a tooth extraction. Tooth loss is much more common than you may think. For this reason, we offer several replacement solutions, some of which include bridges, dental implants, and dentures.
