Dr Howard Klaiman & Associates are passionate about restoring smiles.
You don’t know what you’ve got ‘til it’s gone… and that’s where restorative dentistry in North York comes in.
Procedures that are designed to repair or replace the teeth fall under this branch of dentistry, and our Dr. Howard Klaiman in Toronto happily offers a broad range of these services.
These restorative treatments include:
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made of titanium. They are implanted into the jawbone to support an artificial tooth. Patients with one or more missing teeth may benefit from implant restoration if their gums and bone are sufficient.
Porcelain Crowns and Caps
Porcelain crowns or caps are used to restore fracture, breakage and decay, and are also used for cosmetic reasons. They are also used to protect a tooth that has received root canal treatment. Porcelain crowns restore the tooth’s shape and size while providing strength and support. While there are other types of crowns, porcelain crowns are the most preferred as they will blend with the rest of the teeth.
A traditional restoration performed to replace one or more missing teeth, fixed bridges are anchored with porcelain crowns - helping to restore bite balance and prevent the discomfort often experienced with lost teeth.
Complete Dentures & Partial Dentures
Dentures (both partial and complete) are removable appliances designed to replace missing teeth and surrounding gum tissue. Complete dentures are provided to patients with all teeth missing, and partial dentures are ideal for patients who still have some of their natural teeth. Dentures are very natural-looking, and will not only restore a patient’s facial structure and smile, but will improve speech, chewing and digestion for the patient, as well.
Implant Supported Dentures
Dentures tend to become more poorly fitting over time as the bony structure in the mouth deteriorates. This often leads to discomfort and issues with everyday oral functions. Implant supported dentures help to ensure more comfortable speaking and chewing functions due to improved fit and support, in addition to the prevention of further jaw/ bone deterioration or recession which contributes to a “shrunken” appearance of the facial structure and shape.
Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy is a procedure that saves a decayed, deceased or fractured tooth from eventually requiring extraction. Root canal treatments have a very high success rate and results usually last a lifetime.
Tooth-coloured (composite) fillings are used to repair teeth affected by decay, fracture, cracks and wear. Because they blend with the natural appearance and colour of the teeth, they are a preferred type of filling for many patients. Patients can alternatively opt for silver amalgam fillings if they wish, which are generally less expensive and more ideal for filling back teeth, as they are not tooth-coloured.
