Restorative Dentistry Solutions Are Here | Lexington, KY
At our Lexington, KY dentist’s office, we have the tools, training, and technology needed to restore broken-down or decaying teeth, using a variety of treatment procedures and advanced techniques.
All you have to do is schedule an appointment with Dr. Takacs to address your dental concerns. After a comprehensive consultation and oral examination, together we will choose the treatment path that makes the most sense for your current needs and budget.
Our restorative dentistry treatments include: tooth-colored fillings, root canals, crowns and bridges, implant restorations, and more. Keep reading, and then be sure to follow up with our team!
We even have an immediate (same-day implant procedure) option that will allow you to leave our office with a brand-new smile in just one visit! We can extract any teeth necessary, place dental implants, and load them with a restoration all in just one procedure. This is a great option for patients who need to replace an entire arch or even an entire mouth of teeth.
You can also replace your teeth using implant-supported dentures. Removable dentures can sometimes be slippery and hard to control. Securing them with dental implants ensures that they stay exactly where they are supposed to be. Dr. Takacs will give you more details when you are here for your evaluation.
Mercury-Free Tooth-Colored Fillings
Because cavities are often very small and difficult to see, we use a diagnostic tool called DIAGNOdent to detect cavities. If any decay is detected, we will work fast to set you up with a dental filling procedure.
For this procedure we will numb the affected tooth and create a small opening in it, getting rid of all of the decay in the cavity. Once the decay is removed, we will then fill the hole in with a composite resin.
Cavities used to be filled exclusively with a metal amalgam, which is very effective but looks kind of bad in your mouth and contains mercury, which is a concern for some folks.
At Beaumont Family Dentistry, however, we can use tooth-colored composite resin fillings, which are much more attractive and somewhat safer to use than traditional metal fillings.
Root Canal Treatments
If tooth decay ever reaches the soft pulp of a tooth, a simple filling will not be enough to prevent infection and ensure that the health of the tooth can be restored. But we will be able to perform what is known as a root canal, which will rid the tooth of infection, replace the tooth’s pulp with an inert material, and seal it off again.
These aren’t as bad as you might think. And at least you’ll know that your health will be restored when we are finished with the treatment!
Crowns, Bridges, Etc.
Some of our treatments are designed for specialized functions. Crowns, bridges, and dentures are restorative components that will help your mouth look, function, and feel like it would naturally, following tooth loss, a root canal, etc.
We’ll tell you all about your options, including same-day crowns, during your consultation.
