Restoring Your Quality of Life with Advanced Restorative Dentistry
If you are experiencing tooth pain, chipped teeth, tooth loss, or gum disease, you need the care of a restorative dentist like Dr. Ma. Restorative dentistry focuses on repairing problems in your mouth with treatments like fillings, crowns and dental implants. When your teeth experience damage, restorative dentistry is designed to help bring back your healthy smile.
Root Canal Therapy
If your tooth is suffering from a large crack, cavity, severe pain, or an abscess, Dr. Ma may recommend endodontic therapy to save it. If the idea of a root canal makes you nervous, don’t let it! Root canal therapy is a relatively painless procedure. Once your treatment is completed, a dental crown will be placed to stabilize your tooth and protect it from further damage.
For patients missing all their teeth, we offer cosmetic dentures to give you back the function, feel and appearance of your natural teeth.
Are your existing dentures loose and causing you discomfort? Dr. Ma can eliminate the problem of slippery dentures using dental implants. Once implants are placed, Dr. Ma will fit your dentures with attachments that allow the implants to hold your dentures firmly in place. No more sliding around in discomfort!
If you are missing more than one tooth in an area, Dr. Ma might suggest a bridge as a tooth replacement option. Porcelain bridgework is used to replace one or more missing teeth and is anchored to natural teeth (called abutments) on either end of the gap. Bridgework will allow you to improve your smile and stabilize that area of your mouth, allowing you to smile with confidence again.
Everlasting Smiles offers full-coverage crowns, made from luminous porcelain and Zirconia materials. These restorations offer beautiful aesthetic results that protect your natural tooth from further damage or decay. They’re also perfect for topping off your dental implants.
For small cavities, tooth colored fillings are an excellent choice. To protect your overall health, Dr. Ma only uses mercury-free fillings to treat cavities. Not only are they safer, but they’re also more attractive.
Inlays and Onlays
Metal-free dental inlays and onlays are used to repair teeth in the back of your mouth which suffer from mild to moderate decay. Dr. Ma can also use inlays and onlays to treat fractured teeth that aren’t damaged severely enough to need a crown.
Are you missing one or all of your teeth? Dr. Ma is one of a few dentists in the Palm Beach Gardens area that surgically places dental implants in his own office, instead of referring you elsewhere for the surgical phase. Using a titanium post, these artificial “tooth roots” act as a secure support to permanently anchor your new tooth, bridge or denture.
Teeth in a Day
With Teeth In A Day (All-on-4), Dr. Ma stabilizes dental implants together with a prosthesis to allow you to use your teeth immediately. If you are a good candidate for Teeth In A Day, you can expect to have your teeth in just one day!
Dentures in One Week
While traditional dentures can take up to six weeks to be fabricated and fitted by your dentist, we can have your dentures ready in just one week (in qualified cases)!
Over 70% of adults in the United States have some form of gum disease, but they don’t even know it. The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends regular dental checkups to make sure you have a healthy mouth and overall wellness
