Restorative Dentistry in Gaithersburg, MD
Dr. Steven Anolik and Dr. Corey Anolik are experienced restorative dentists in Gaithersburg, MD. Together, they have helped hundreds of patients resolve complex dental concerns that are taking a toll on their smiles. Dental concerns like deep chips or cracks can cause structural damage to your teeth and cause functionality concerns.
Similarly, if you are missing one or more teeth, this impacts more than just your cosmetic appearance but also your quality of life. We also consider consistent jaw pain, bite misalignment, and progressed gum disease to be dental concerns that require restorative care.
No worries though! At TotallySmiles, we can help you get back on track toward your dream smile with the following restorative dentistry services:
Dental crowns cosmetically and functionally replace the entire exterior of an affected tooth. Perfect for helping patients avoid the need for a tooth extraction following extensive dental damages, a dental crown allows patients to maintain their tooth roots while still having the exterior part of the tooth replaced. During the dental crown procedure, your affected tooth will be shaped down to its foundational core, with will support the restored dental crown.
Dental bridges help patients who are missing one or more consecutive teeth. Using the support of your remaining, surrounding teeth, the dental bridge literally bridges the gap between your missing teeth and holds prosthetic teeth in place. Dental crowns are placed over the supporting teeth to ensure they remain strong and durable enough to hold the dental bridge in place. Patients love dental bridges because they do not require long healing times, and are a more affordable option for tooth replacement.
Dental implants are considered the premier option for tooth replacement. Instead of simply cosmetically restoring a missing tooth, dental implants restore the look, feel, AND function of a missing tooth. What this means for you is that when you replace a missing tooth with a dental implant, you can utilize it just as you would your natural teeth without the dietary restrictions and oral hygiene hazards that may occur with dental bridges.
Dental implants require a surgical procedure, where the implant post is inserted beneath your small tissues and allowed to fuse together with your jawbone. While this procedure requires a longer healing time, the end result maintains a high patient satisfaction rating because of the high-quality restoration that will last you for the rest of your life with proper care.
Dentures & Partials
We are happy to provide dentures and partials to patients who are missing a full arch of teeth. Our dentures and partials are custom designed for your soft tissues, ensuring a comfortable and secure fit. Additionally, if you find that traditional dentures slip and slide in your mouth while in use, we also offer implant-supported dentures. Implant-supported dentures are secured to your jawbone with dental implants, meaning no more removable dentures!
Periodontal Disease Treatment
Gum disease is an extremely common dental concern that we treat in our Gaithersburg, MD dentist office. While we do our best to help patients prevent gum disease by providing preventative dental care, some patients may visit us when their gum disease has already progressed past being treated using a dental cleaning. If this is the case, we will offer our periodontal disease treatment services to remove any infected gum tissue and clean the bacteria out from the deep pockets of your gums.
If you suffer from frequent jaw pain, tension headaches, or earaches, you may have what is known as a TMJ disorder. A TMJ disorder is often caused by underlying dental concerns like bite misaligned, missing teeth, or a history of teeth grinding. Because the associated symptoms of TMJ disorders can be debilitating and annoying to deal with throughout the day, we recommend visiting our office for TMJ treatment. Our doctors will thoroughly evaluate your smile and address the underlying concerns causing your jaw pain.
