Comprehensive Dentistry

Restorative dentistry is based on a comprehensive approach to dental health. We conduct a thorough examination for each patient and take the time to get to know each patient personally. The comprehensive approach we take to restorative dentistry includes:

Controlling periodontal disease: Gum disease is often painless and undetected by the patient until its later stages. The good news is that with professional care, gum disease can be treated and prevented.

Correcting bite problems: An improper bite can lead to painful problems with the jaw joints, create uneven wear on teeth, and even cause teeth to shift. Comprehensive restorative dentistry seeks to improve a patient’s bite to correct or prevent these problems and allow patients to eat all their favorite foods.

Esthetic considerations: In addition to functional considerations such as improving chewing ability, restorative dentistry also seeks to create an esthetically pleasing result. Some patients benefit from a complete “dental makeover” that not only solves chewing problems but also gives them a dazzling smile.

Restoring or replacing teeth: Using tooth-colored materials, teeth with cavities can be filled and thus strengthened and saved. Custom-fitting crowns are also used to restore teeth. Missing teeth can be replaced with dental implants which are stable and natural-looking and also allow patients to smile, eat, talk, and laugh as they would with natural teeth.

Restoring self-confidence: Comprehensive dentistry not only restores teeth—it also frequently restores the patient’s self confidence. People feel better about themselves after they leave our office.

Recognizing that restorative dentistry is both an art and a science, we create customized treatment plans for each patient that reflect our commitment to excellence and our desire to meet and exceed your expectations. Whether you need one tooth restored or a full-mouth dental makeover, call us today at (847) 253-7000 to discuss treatment options. We want you to leave our office smiling.
