Dental damage and decay are some of the most common oral health problems in the country, and folks with intellectual or physical disabilities are at an even higher risk for developing these problems. Fortunately, our team at Disability Dental offers custom-crafted, beautiful, and functional prosthetics and restorations to not only restore the appearance of your loved one’s smile, but also their ability to eat and speak with ease.
Cracks, chips, and large cavities may require a more significant restoration, such as a dental crown. We place porcelain fused to metal or zirconia crowns, which are materials that can be custom-crafted to match the color of your loved one’s surrounding teeth. That way, they don’t highlight dental damage when they smile, speak, or laugh. The material used for a crown will be determined based on the patient's unique situation and what will work best for their needs.
We place both composite and amalgam fillings to repair areas of tooth decay, called cavities. Decay that isn’t filled can grow to cause major oral health problems. At a checkup or examination, the dentist will find areas of tooth decay or demineralization and inform you about what type of restoration will best fit your loved one’s needs.
