Restoring your smile can be a life-changing decision.
Dr. Drew Shulman focuses on restoring the health and function of teeth to patients. If you have missing or broken teeth, TMJ disorders, tooth decay, tooth discoloration, or general wear and tear on your teeth, you can benefit from restorative dental treatments. Providing comfortable care and natural-looking results is our mission.
Dr. Shulman offers sedation dentistry near you for anxious or fearful patients. He is one of few Philadelphia area dentists licensed and certified to offer dental sedation. He has completed over 125 hours of training as a member of the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation (DOCS).
If you have been avoiding the dentist and would like to restore the health, comfort and beauty of your smile we can work with you to provide dental care that is stress free using conscious sedation.
Dr. Shulman will complete a complete evaluation before every treatment. He will examine the teeth, gums, jaw, and muscles to determine the source of the problem. By fixing the root problem, he can ensure a long term solution for his patients.
Assessing each patient also helps Dr. Shulman know where he can place the dental restoration. If a patient has missing teeth, he may look for bone tissue that can support dental implants. Likewise, if a patient is suffering from a TMJ disorder, he can figure out the cause.
All of our dental restorations will look natural. We use tooth colored materials to make them so they will blend in naturally with your remaining teeth.
Restorative Dental Treatments: What Are the Options?
Dental crowns are used after a root canal to protect the structure of the tooth from further damage. Your dentist will use them in restorative and cosmetic dentistry applications because of their versatility and customizable appearance.
If you are missing one or several natural teeth, dental implants may be utilized in a variety of ways to restore your smile. Used on their own, dental implants can replace one tooth or several teeth. Your dentist can also use them to secure dental bridges and dentures for multiple consecutive missing teeth, arches of teeth, or sets of teeth. If you suffer from tooth loss, dental implants are the number one solution to restore your teeth.
A dental bridge is a traditional method of replacing lost and missing teeth. This restoration restores tooth structure, shape, and function of teeth after a patients has lost a tooth. A bridge requires the use of the surrounding teeth to support it.
Dentures & Partials
Another traditional method of replacing teeth, dentures are the most sought-after restoration for senior patients. Modern dentures fit more precisely and are comfortable to wear all day. Partial dentures help restore a row or section of lost teeth to make it easier for you to bite and chew.
Periodontal therapy is the treatment of gum disease. If left untreated, gum disease can lead to more health problems such as heart disease and diabetes. Dr. Shulman uses a small laser instrument called the DIAGNOdent, which scans teeth for hidden decay. DIAGNOdent allows Dr. Shulman to monitor the areas below the hard surfaces to locate hidden decay and treat gum disease before it spreads.
Do you have chronic headaches or jaw pain? You may have a TMJ disorder. The temporomandibular joint connects the jawbone to the skull. When pain develops around this joint and the surrounding muscles, it can be a TMJ disorder. If left untreated, TMJ disorders can cause serious damage to the jaw joint.
