Restorative Dentistry

Healthy teeth make it easier to enjoy the best parts of life, from eating the foods you love to smiling and talking without feeling self-conscious. Whether you’re missing teeth or experiencing problems in your natural teeth, such as decay or natural wear and tear, restorative dentistry can help you reclaim your strong and healthy smile.

Dental Implants

Dental Implants in East Ridge

Because of their natural appearance and superior function, dental implants are the preferred method of replacing missing teeth. Dental implants can be used in a variety of restorative procedures, from single tooth replacements to full mouth reconstructions. Whether you’re missing one tooth or many teeth, there’s an implant option for you.

Single Tooth Dental Implant

One of the greatest advantages of dental implants is that they enable Dr. Krasniqi to replace a missing tooth without having to use the surrounding teeth for support. They’re also easy to care for—you just brush and floss them along with your other natural teeth—so they tend to last a very long time.

Implant-Supported Bridge

An implant-supported bridge is an excellent way to replace three or more teeth. Bridges can usually be attached to one or two implants, depending on the size and location of the bridge. Unlike traditional dental bridges, implant-supported bridges don’t require Dr. Krasniqi to shave down the teeth next to the missing tooth. This not only saves you from unnecessary treatment, but it also protects your jaw bone from weakening as a result of the additional shaving of those surrounding teeth.

Implant-Supported Overdenture

An overdenture is a special type of denture designed to fit over existing teeth or connect to an implant. In the case of an implant-supported overdenture, the prosthetic is held in place by mini implants, which are smaller and faster to place than conventional implants. You’ll save your soft tissues from a lot of discomfort, and you’ll also have better stability and control with an implant-supported overdenture.

Bone Grafting for Dental Implants

When you lose a tooth, the surrounding bone tends to shrink and soften. The gum tissue can also recede around the space because there is no longer anything there to support it.

Strong and healthy bones are important for successful osseointegration, the process by which a dental implant naturally fuses with your jaw bone. If Dr. Krasniqi notices significant bone loss during your initial exam, he might suggest a bone graft to ensure a more successful outcome.


Crowns & Fixed Bridges

Dental crowns restore damaged or decayed teeth and protect them for years. If Dr. Krasniqi places a crown before your tooth fractures or gets infected, it can save you from needing more invasive restorative treatments like an extraction or a root canal.

Dental bridges combine the best aspects of crowns and partial dentures to literally “bridge” the gap created by one or more missing teeth. In a traditional bridge, the teeth on either side of the missing tooth are shaved down and restored with crowns, which are connected by an artificial tooth that fills the space. With easy home care instructions and a little practice, a bridge will feel like part of your natural smile in no time.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Dental fillings are small restorative treatments that can make a BIG difference in the health and appearance of your smile.

Tooth-colored fillings are made out of composite materials that blend in with the rest of your tooth, creating a more natural-looking restoration than traditional silver fillings. Composite fillings can be bonded directly to the surface of your tooth, which means they require less preparation and leave more healthy tooth structure beneath the filling.

Dentures & Partial Dentures

Just because you have dentures doesn’t mean you have to put up with slipping, clicking, and messy adhesives! Modern dentures are incredibly versatile, and they can be customized to look and feel like your natural teeth. Whether you need a partial denture, a full denture, or a reline of your existing set, we take great care to ensure that your dentures are as comfortable and affordable as possible.

Gentle Root Canal Therapy

When a tooth is cracked, broken, or severely decayed, the pulp inside of the tooth can become infected. If the pulp is not removed with a root canal, it can cause an abscess or even spread the infection to surrounding teeth. Root canal therapy is a highly-successful restorative procedure that can save a damaged tooth from extraction and protect it for many years.

Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom Teeth Removal

Most older teens and young adults will eventually need their wisdom teeth removed. Because wisdom teeth are the last permanent teeth to erupt, there is often not enough room left in the mouth to accommodate them. The lack of space can cause wisdom teeth to come in sideways, only partially erupt, or become impacted within the gums.

Dr. Krasniqi will evaluate the status of your wisdom teeth with a visual exam and panoramic X-ray. If it turns out that they’re not erupting properly, he will explain your options for removal (traditional extraction or surgical removal) and thoroughly discuss the pros and cons of each method.

Extractions & Oral Surgery

Although we will do everything in our power to help you keep all of your natural teeth for the rest of your life, sometimes an extraction is necessary to preserve your overall oral health.

If you do need an extraction, you can rest assured that Dr. Krasniqi will thoroughly explain the process to you and provide the sedation you need to make your treatment as comfortable as possible.
