Why Restorative Dental Care is Important
Dental restorations are among the best treatment options for correcting oral health issues. Using a combination of advanced techniques, our team can help you treat infections, repair chips, and cracks, and replace missing teeth. Restorative dentistry has come a long way over time, and you can now enjoy faster recovery times, safer procedures, and more affordable costs. Our dental team is equipped with the latest tools and technologies to deliver advanced care during dental restorations. HB Dental provides a wide variety of treatments to correct dental issues and strengthen your overall oral health, including:
Comprehensive Laser Dentistry in Huntington Beach
As oral healthcare technology has advanced, laser dental treatment has become more successful and more affordable. This innovative technology improves the efficiency of treatment and shortens healing time. At HB Dental, we are dedicated to staying current on all the latest technology, so your treatments produce the best possible results.
Dr. Mazi uses the Biolase® Water Laser for a variety of hard and soft tissue procedures. This powerful tool removes decay and sculpts tissue quickly and comfortably. Other benefits of lasers dentistry include:
- Reduced chance of infection
- Increased comfort during procedures
- No noise, heat, or vibration
- Minimal bleeding and swelling
- Faster recovery
- Preserve enamel
Dental lasers can perform gum contouring, crown lengthening, cold sore and canker removal, teeth whitening, and TMJ disorder management. This advanced technique is especially helpful when treating children or those with high dental anxiety.
Customize Your Restorative Treatment Plan
Restorative dentistry offers many different individual treatments that can be combined into a customized treatment plan. The goal is to correct immediate problems and manage your ongoing oral health in a way that is convenient and affordable for your family. From toddlers to seniors, just about everyone will experience one or more restorative treatments in their lifetime to ensure that optimal oral health is maintained.
Composite & Amalgam Fillings
Fillings are one of the most common procedures available and can be done for restorative and cosmetic purposes. Composite fillings satisfy both because the durable material is also the color of your natural enamel. Amalgam fillings are a mixture of metals (mostly mercury, copper, and silver) and can be a more cost-effective solution based on which tooth needs treatment. We make sure you understand all the benefits of each filling so you can make an informed decision.
Porcelain crowns cover the surface of your tooth to restore its original shape. Porcelain crowns are among the most durable solutions out there because they bond tightly with the tooth surface. In most cases, porcelain crowns will come fused with metal so they can withstand intense bite pressure. Crowns are also combined with many other restorative treatments such as bridges, partial dentures, and dental implants.
Porcelain Inlays and Onlays
Inlays are particularly useful when decay has only occurred on the tooth surface but not along the cusps, or edges. Inlays are essentially fillings that have been pre-molded to fit the grooves of your teeth. This highly customized option allows us to replace decay with a biocompatible material that prevents further damage and blends in naturally with neighboring teeth. And because inlays highly resemble the natural tooth structure, your smile will be restored, and the tooth saved. Inlays and onlays are appropriate for areas of decay that are too large for a filling but not large enough to require a crown.
A missing tooth can make you feel self-conscious about your smile and start problems with other teeth shifting out of alignment. A fixed bridge uses two crowns placed on each side of the space with a custom prosthetic suspended in between. Having that gap filled lets you smile with confidence again and keeps your other teeth in proper alignment.
Dentures & Partials
Dentures are one of the most cost-effective restoration options available. Multiple missing teeth can cause biting and chewing and negatively impact your overall oral health. Dentures are removable devices with custom prosthetics designed to fit comfortably on your gumline with minimal irritation. Whether you are missing just a few teeth or an entire arch, dentures can economically restore your smile and promote long term oral health.
Dental implants are a complete and permanent way of replacing missing teeth. An implant consists of a titanium post, an abutment, and a custom crown, an implant provides you with a new tooth, from root to crown. The implant post is surgically placed into the jawbone, where it integrates with the surrounding tissue to form a secure base for your crown. The post acts as a tooth root and provides essential stimulation to the bone and helps maintain a youthful facial appearance. Implants are easy to take care of and can be combined with bridges and dentures to create a more permanent restoration.
Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy involves removing infected pulp inside a tooth to save as much original structure as possible. Root canal therapy prevents infection from affecting neighboring teeth and causing other complications in the future. Our first choice is always to save a tooth if possible, but if the tooth cannot be saved, extraction may be necessary. Implants are great, but nothing is better than the natural dental structure you were born with.
In some cases, a tooth damaged by trauma or decay cannot be saved with root canal therapy. In these cases, extracting the tooth will prevent further complications and make it easier to restore your oral health. Our expert team can help you determine if an extraction is the best option for you, and make sure your procedure is safe, comfortable, and effective. Our advanced techniques make your recovery faster and provide numerous options to replace your tooth in a way that fits your budget and your lifestyle.
Sedation is beneficial for those who have so much fear that it prevents them from going to the dentist. It can provide a relaxing and anxiety-free treatment experience so you can receive the essential dental care you need. It can also be useful for those who:
- Have a low pain threshold
- Are unable to sit still in the dentist’s chair
- Have a sensitive gag reflex
- Need a large amount of dental work done
- Have very sensitive teeth and gums
To make your appointments more comfortable, we provide nitrous oxide and oral sedation. If you need many procedures done at once or more complicated oral surgery, we can also bring in our anesthesiologist to administer IV sedation. Sedation makes time fly by quickly, and you’ll have a much more pleasant experience.
Nitrous oxide or laughing gas, is a mild sedative administered by a small mask placed over the nose, before and during treatment. You remain awake, and there are no side-effects, so you can resume your normal activities immediately. Oral sedation is a moderate form of sedation that many people prefer because it does not require the use of needles. You take medication orally before your appointment to relax your senses, and it will feel like your procedure took only a short amount of time.
IV sedation is administered intravenously, and the effects are almost immediate. The medication is carefully monitored during your treatment and can be adjusted if needed. Both oral and IV sedation require you to bring a friend or family member with you to your appointment. They will need to drive you home.
