Treatment Planning

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 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

Dentists use dental crowns after a root canal procedure 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. For example, a dental crown can repair a cracked tooth, hide a tooth stain, and restore a weak tooth.

Dental Implants

If you are missing one or several natural teeth, your dentist can use dental implants in a variety of ways to restore your them. On their own, dental implants can replace one tooth or several teeth. Your dentist can also use them to secure dental bridges and dentures to replace 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.

Dental Bridges

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 patient has lost a tooth. A traditional bridge requires the use of the surrounding teeth to support it. Our dentist can also provide an implant-supported bridge to permanently replace a lost tooth.

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. Our dentist can also permanently attach a denture to your mouth using dental implants.

Periodontal Therapy

Periodontal therapy is the treatment of gum disease. Without treatment, 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.

TMJ Treatment

You may have a TMJ disorder if you have chronic headaches or jaw pain. 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.

Without treatment, TMJ disorders can cause serious damage to the jaw joint. Dr. Shulman provides TMJ disorder evaluations and recommendations for treatment.
