Restorative Dentistry: Achieving & Maintaining Healthy Smiles
At the Rocky Hill dental office of Thaddeus S. Michalski, DMD, it’s always our goal to help patients maintain their highest level of oral health. When tooth decay, dental damage, and oral health conditions occur, we’re also here to repair teeth and gums for improved oral health and wellness. Many people don’t realize that the condition of their mouth corresponds to their overall health. In fact, studies show that people with a full set of teeth live longer than those who have missing teeth. Dr. Michalski takes a holistic approach to dentistry, ensuring your smile’s longevity and improving your quality of life. When you’re ready to get started repairing damaged smiles and improving your oral health, call Dr. Michalski and his team.
To repair minor tooth decay, damage, chips, and cracks in the smile, we may recommend tooth-colored fillings. Using quality composite resin, we can seamlessly replace lost tooth structure and repair dental damage. This treatment is quickly completed with just one trip to our dental office.
A dental crown is used to repair smiles following more advanced decay or damage. These restorations are molded to fit over the top of the damaged tooth or teeth to replace lost tooth structure and protect the healthy part of your tooth that remains.
TRADITIONAL FIXED BRIDGES
Fixed bridges are tooth replacement prosthetics that use dental crowns attached to healthy tooth structures to support one or more replacement teeth. These restorations literally bridge the gap in your smile.
ROOT CANAL THERAPY
Root canals have a reputation for being painful, but they are actually relatively comfortable procedures. In fact, you will likely feel immediate improvement following your root canal procedure, which will remove and replace the damaged tissue.
DENTURES & PARTIALS
Extensive tooth loss can be painful, embarrassing, and uncomfortable. Don’t learn to live with a less-than-complete smile. Instead, let our team help. We offer custom partial and full dentures to recreate lost tooth structure and keep you smiling.
Traditional fixed bridges and dentures only replace the part of the tooth you can see when you smile. Dental implants are the only restoration options that also replace the roots of missing teeth. This seamlessly recreates natural dental structures from the roots up for increased stability and longevity and improved oral health.
Prettau bridges are dental implant supported tooth replacement prosthetics crafted from the highest quality zirconia materials in order to offer the closest-to-natural end results. Highly stain resistant and durable, Prettau bridges give patients struggling with extensive tooth loss their smiles back.
ALL-ON-4 DENTAL IMPLANTS
All-on-4 is an innovative form of dental implant supported dentures. The uniqueness of the All-on-4 system stems from the streamlined process that maximizes the densest part of the jawbone to support the full dentures rather than requiring potentially invasive tissue grafting procedures.
FULL MOUTH RECONSTRUCTION
If you’ve experienced severe tooth decay, damage, or facial injury, you may need us to put together a personalized full mouth reconstruction plan. These treatments may include a combination of restorative and cosmetic treatments customized to improve the appearance and function of your smile as a whole.
ADVANCED DENTAL TECHNOLOGIES
To deliver faster, safer, and more comfortable restorative dentistry, Dr. Michalski has invested in all of the latest dentistry technologies, including air abrasion and laser dentistry.
One of the things that many patients find off-putting about the dentist is the high-pitched whine of a dental drill. Lucky for our patients, we us air abrasion technology to offer drill-less preparation for cavity repair.
LASER TREATMENT FOR COLD SORES
Lasers aren’t just weapons on your favorite science fiction show anymore. Today, we can use them to make numerous dental treatments faster, safer, and more comfortable. If you suffer from regular, persistent cold sores, you know that this condition is painful and often resistant to treatment. Laser therapy can almost instantly improve the condition of cold sores and significantly reduce healing time.
