When the tooth has become decayed, the goal is to remove the cavity from the tooth and restore the area with a dental filling. If left untreated, a simple cavity can turn into a painful problem if the nerve becomes infected. With a filling, you can treat a cavity before it becomes worse and your tooth becomes infected.
Dental crowns are made of durable ceramic material, and are designed to fit over your tooth and protect it from further damage. They’re the best option for restoring severely damaged or decayed teeth, depending on the remaining tooth structure.
Infected teeth need to be treated with root canal therapy. In this procedure, Dr. Kim will remove the infection from the tooth, then clean, fill, and protect it with a dental filling or crown to prevent further damage and infection.
With expert periodontal care in Downtown San Diego, from Dr. Kim, you can fight back against gum disease and keep your teeth and gums healthy. Gums and surrounding tissue can become infected when plaque and calculus are not removed from the root surfaces. Swelling or bleeding at the gumline can be a sign of a gum infection. Dr. Kim can diagnose and remove the infection by doing a scaling and root planing (deep cleaning).
A dental bridge uses two crowns to suspend a false tooth in the gap where your missing tooth used to be, and is a good alternative to a partial denture or a dental implant.
We offer both partial dentures for patients missing several teeth, and full-arch dentures to restore the upper and lower arch of teeth. Contact us now at (619) 696-0510 for an appointment, and restore your smile with a new set of custom-fitted dentures right away.
