Restoration Services We Offer
Dr. Shin begins your consultation by listening carefully to you, then conducting a thorough exam. We take a conservative approach aimed at helping you preserve your existing teeth as much as possible.
We offer you a variety of services you can depend on to restore your oral health and overall well-being. The restorative services we provide include:
Gum Disease Treatment to Restore Oral Health
Your gums play a crucial role in your oral health and overall wellness. Gum disease often occurs when plaque and tartar build-up above and under the gumline. Following proper oral hygiene and receiving professional cleaning twice a year is our recommendation for every patient to help avoid gum disease.
Gingivitis is the first stage of gum disease and the easiest to treat. If left to progress, it may develop into periodontitis, which can be damaging to your oral health. Dr. Shin gives particular care to your gums and believes that when they are in perfect condition, they provide a strong foundation for treatment results to stick. Because of this, he makes sure your gums are in excellent condition before proceeding with any treatment.
Our practice provides scaling and root planing, also known as deep cleaning. Tooth scaling involves removing plaque and food debris from teeth as well as below the gum line. Root planing smoothes all rough areas on your tooth root’s surfaces, allowing your gums to heal correctly and reattach.
Implant-Supported Natural-Looking Restorations
At Bowman Shin, DMD Family Dentistry, we work with your prosthodontist to restore your dental implants. We proudly provide implant-supported restorations of exceptional quality. Whether you're missing one tooth or more, each prosthetic we offer is crafted to meet your tooth replacement needs.
- Full Dentures - Restore an entire smile of missing teeth using six to eight implants
- Partial Dentures - Replace multiple missing teeth throughout the smile
- Bridges - Restore several lost teeth when supported by two dental implants
- Crowns - Replace a single missing tooth when attached to one implant
Effective Sleep Apnea Treatment
We understand that each sleep apnea case is unique and offer the most effective treatment for your specific situation. Whether your sleep apnea is related to your tongue, jaw, or a combination, we are here to help you get a good night's sleep.
Dental appliances we use for sleep apnea include:
Tongue Retaining Appliance: This appliance is placed over the tongue while asleep and helps keep the tongue from sagging toward the back of the throat. In certain situations, a tongue retaining mouthpiece may be the best option for keeping your airway open and clear.
Mandibular Advancement Devices (MADs): Made up of two arches placed over the top and bottom jaws, this appliance is attached by adjustable metal pivots. It helps push your bottom jaw slightly forward, opening your airway as you sleep through the night.
High Precision Restorations for Superior Dental Health
If your teeth suffer decay or damage, our expert care can help to renew their function and appeal. We work with local labs that use top-quality materials to provide safe and natural-looking restorations. This way, we protect your teeth without compromising treatment quality.
Composite fillings restore your teeth from early signs of decay. Our team removes decayed portions of your enamel and replaces them with fillings. Composite fillings look natural and are ideal for restoring teeth with minor wear, chips, cracks, or decay.
If your tooth endures severe decay or is worn out, crowns may be a great restoration option for you. It encases the entire tooth to protect it from further damage and help restore the tooth's shape and functionality. Our crowns resemble your natural teeth in shape and color and won't stand out when you smile.
Common reasons we may recommend a crown include:
- Protecting your tooth after a root canal
- Improving biting and chewing
- Restoring a single dental implant
- Supporting a dental bridge
- Strengthening weak and worn teeth
- Improving the appearance of misshapen teeth
If you have one to three missing teeth in a row, we use a bridge to fill in that gap making your smile whole again. To fit the bridge in place, two hollow crowns are placed on top of your neighboring natural teeth at each side of the gap for lasting support.
Full & Partial Dentures
Both types of dentures consist of a set of natural-looking porcelain teeth fitted on a pink acrylic base that accurately mimics your gum tissue. Complete dentures are an ideal solution if you are missing all your natural teeth. Full dentures can replace missing teeth in the upper or lower jaws, or both! If you have healthy teeth remaining, a partial denture can successfully restore your missing teeth.
Root Canal Treatment
When tooth infection is so severe that it affects the inner tissues of your tooth, known as the pulp, Dr. Shin may perform root canal therapy to save the remaining natural structure of your tooth.
During a root canal treatment, our team removes the infected pulp from inside the root canal chamber, cleans and disinfects the chamber, then fills it with antibacterial material. Finally, our dentist applies a filling or uses a crown to preserve your tooth.
Our compassionate staff has enough training to deal with dental anxiety and complex cases. For that, we provide several sedation techniques, including conscious oral sedation and nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas. These techniques help you relax and feel at ease during treatments.
