Restorative Dentistry in Charlottesville, VA
A highly trained restorative dentist in Charlottesville, VA, Dr. Matthew Harrison provides a wide range of restorative dentistry solutions. Whether you are missing a tooth, have damaged a tooth, or are experiencing the negative effects of jaw pain or gum disease, Harrison Dental Associates can help you restore your smile. Our goal is to get you back on track to a lifetime of good dental health. When you visit our office, we will present you with a restorative dentistry treatment plan that best meets your lifestyle and budgetary goals. Our restorative dentistry treatment plans may include the following services:
Dental implants are the premier method of tooth replacement. Composed of three parts, dental implants include a surgically implanted titanium post that fuses together with your jawbone as it heals. This provides your restoration with tooth-root functionality. Patients love dental implants because it does not require us to compromise your healthy surrounding teeth as dental bridges do.
Dental crowns are custom caps used to replace the exterior of a broken or damaged tooth. If you suffer from a deep crack or chip, a dental crown can be placed over the affected tooth to protect it from further damage and to restore its appearance and functionality within your smile.
Dental bridges help bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. Utilizing the support of your surrounding teeth, the dental bridge holds a prosthetic tooth in place of the missing tooth. This restores the functionality of your smile while performing daily tasks such as chewing or speaking.
Dentures & Partials
For patients looking to replace a full arch of teeth, we are happy to provide custom dentures and partials. Our dentures and partials are designed using dental impressions of your soft tissues to ensure a secure and comfortable fit. Additionally, we offer implant-secured dentures, which help anchor your dentures into your mouth and prevent slippage during daily use.
Periodontal Disease Treatment
If you’ve suffered the negative effects of gum disease, we are here to help you restore your smile with periodontal disease treatment. Our periodontal disease treatment options include scaling and root planing, which removes bacteria buried in the deep pockets of your soft tissues. Additionally, we may utilize laser dentistry options to remove any infected tissues.
Patients who experience jaw pain associated with the temporomandibular joint of their jaw likely have a TMJ disorder. Our office helps patients with TMJ disorders by uncovering the underlying causes of their disorder and then treating them accordingly.
