In restorative dentistry, patients with special needs require a specialized and unique approach to receive the best treatment. At Special Care Dentistry of Oregon, we have dental specialists who are trained in offering professional dental care to our patients with special needs.
Our restorative dentistry services involve replacing missing teeth. Replacement of teeth is crucial to help improve your dental health and have proper chewing function. We have flexible appointment schedules for our patients. Any patient with injured or missing teeth should seek our restorative dental services, which include the following:
Dental crowns are tooth restoration tools. They replace your missing teeth, and their color and shape mimic your natural teeth, giving you a natural look. The crowns cover the entire surface of your teeth. Some parts of the natural teeth must be filed down to place the crown. The placement of crowns will restore your confidence and achieve a better smile. We conduct dental crown placement cautiously and in a comfortable environment for our patients. Sedation is provided to ensure the patient is comfortable. We also make adjustments to the dental chair when necessary.
Patients with special needs can be susceptible to dental hygiene problems, especially if they don't adopt good oral practices. Failure to brush the teeth and floss will lead to a buildup of bacteria in the mouth. Over time bacteria will accumulate, producing harmful toxins that eat away parts of the tooth structure. Holes will develop, and later cavities. During the dental filling procedure, we remove parts of the decayed tooth and fill it with a composite material. Since our patients might be pretty anxious during the process, we encourage them to carry comfort items and be accompanied by a caregiver.
A dental implant is a threaded post that is anchored onto the jawbone. The implant acts as the root of your artificial teeth. After placing the implant, we can attach a crown that functions like a natural tooth. You can select multiple materials for implants, such as ceramic, porcelain, and metal. Implants are preferred due to their durability for those looking for a long-lasting solution. Sedation and a comfortable environment will make the process of dental implant placement for our patients easier.
Dental bridges help to replace one tooth or an entire row of lost teeth. The bridges come with artificial teeth and crowns. Our dental specialists bond the bridge on your teeth and fit the crowns. We have a team that offers adequate assistance in the treatment procedure and monitors each patient. A caregiver should also be present to give instructions and information as we perform the dental procedures.
