Special Needs Restorative Dentistry in Dallas
Dr. Ford Returns Smiles to Full Health
Restorative dentistry involves repairing teeth that have been damaged by tooth decay, cracks, chips, or disease by providing dental fillings, as well as crowns.
We place both composite and amalgam fillings to repair areas of tooth decay, called cavities. Your special needs dentist will determine the best filling material for the patient. Cavities that aren'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 as to his recommended restorative treatment.
Cracks, chips, and large cavities may require a more significant restoration, such as a full or partial crown. We place ceramic (white), porcelain fused to metal (white), or gold crowns. The material used for a crown will be determined based on the patient's unique situation and the location of the tooth in the mouth. In most cases, front teeth can be crowned with a white restoration and back teeth need a stronger material, such as gold.
