Peery Family Dentistry has several restorative dentistry options for those who would like to bring back the full function of their bite. Because teeth can become decayed or damaged in different ways, our restorative dentistry team is trained to always respond with comprehensive, customized care. Dr. James M. Peery, Jr. and his son, Dr. James M. Peery III, can evaluate the health of your mouth to determine which restorative dentistry treatment would benefit you the most!
According to recent studies, a majority of Americans will be affected by various forms of gum disease throughout their lifetime. This can be caused by poor dental hygiene or even simply because of a genetic predisposition to the condition! We'll try to keep an eye on your oral health during routine general family dentistry appointments, but our restorative dentistry team can perform gum disease therapy when it's necessary.
If you'd like a stable way to replace a missing tooth or teeth, ask us about dental implants! During this restorative dentistry procedure, a small titanium screw will be placed in the empty socket of the missing tooth. This will act as an artificial tooth root, which fuses with your jawbone over time. Once Dr. Peery has declared this restorative dentistry technique successful, you'll be able to return to us to have the implants restored. Please call Peery Family Dentistry if you'd like to receive a dental implant.
Do you need to replace several missing teeth? Full dentures or a partial could be your answer! Our restorative dentistry staff routinely fits patients for dentures and partials. During a restorative dentistry examination, you and Dr. Peery can work together to plan your course of treatment. Both dentures and partials are removable, so they're easy to clean.
Would you rather have a more permanent way to fill gaps in your smile? Peery Family Dentistry can restore full oral function with crown and bridge therapy. If you're missing multiple teeth in a row along a gum line, then we can measure your smile for a dental bridge. This restorative dentistry appliance can be created to match your other teeth. We'll then attach the bridge to your other healthy teeth with crowns. Many of our patients enjoy the security they've gained with crown and bridge therapy from our restorative dentistry office.
Do you have an aching, painful tooth? You may have a tooth infection, and you'll need to contact our restorative dentistry practice as soon as you can. To save a diseased tooth, we can provide root canal therapy. During a root canal, Dr. Peery will go into the layers of your tooth, remove the decay-causing bacteria that have managed to breach your enamel, and then finish the restorative dentistry procedure by applying a dental crown.
Please contact our restorative dentistry office if you would like to schedule an appointment. Peery Family Dentistry sees patients from Lynchburg, Miller Park, Montview, Madison Heights, Woodland, and surrounding Virginia locations for restorative dentistry care. If visiting the dentist makes you nervous, ask our restorative dentistry staff about sedation dentistry to ease your concerns.
