Besides a general dentist committed to quality preventive care, Dr. Joseph has years of advanced training and experience. Dr. Joseph specialty focuses on the restoration or replacement of damaged teeth with the overall goal of preserving or rebuilding a smile compromised by disease, poor oral health, or traumatic injury. As a restorative dentist in Plano, Dr. Joseph has the services you need to rehabilitate your smile, including:
Dental Crowns & Bridges
Despite new advancements in dentistry, 120 million Americans are missing at least one tooth. Dental crowns and a bridge are the most convenient solution to fill the space of one to three consecutive missing teeth. Dr. Joseph takes an impression of your mouth to design a bridge of prosthetic teeth. It is held in place by reshaping your adjacent teeth to bond dental crowns to them. This is an effective treatment that can last for an average of 5 years before needing to be replaced.
Dentures and Partial Dentures
Do you need to replace multiple teeth or an entire arch? Dr. Joseph offers traditional partials and dentures, as well as those that are implant-supported. Although traditional dentures have a bad reputation for looking and feeling fake, Dr. Joseph uses the latest innovations in dentistry to improve their fit and aesthetics. You can smile confidently while eating a wider variety of foods to restore your quality of life. Dr. Joseph creates the customized treatment plan you need to rebuild a healthy, functional, beautiful smile.
When a tooth is severely decayed or damaged and cannot be saved, it must be removed professionally through a procedure called a tooth extraction. Extractions are commonly performed on teeth that are severely decayed or broken, or in cases where the mouth does not have space for the tooth, as is the case with most wisdom teeth extractions or extractions performed in conjunction to orthodontic treatment.
While many patients may be in pain before removal, the actual extraction procedure is virtually painless, and many patients heal quickly and resume standard functions within a reasonable time post-procedure. Contact our office to see how we can help make your extraction painless.
Root Canal Therapy
If you have a severely damaged tooth, do not have it pulled. Dr. Joseph can save it with a root canal. The endodontic treatment extracts the inner layer of your tooth called the pulp. This stops the infection from spreading to the surrounding structures. He then sterilizes your tooth and seals it with a special material called gutta-percha to add strength to its structure. Dr. Joseph creates a dental crown to place over your tooth to protect it from future damage while reinstating its function and appearance.
You can treat your cavities using an alternative to metal fillings. A biocompatible, composite resin material is customized to match the color of your enamel for natural-looking results. The resin is also metal-free, so you do not need to worry about a visible appearance or mercury exposure. Tooth-colored fillings give you a nearly undetectable treatment to stop the damages of decay to save your tooth. No matter if it is a new cavity or you would like to replace an old amalgam filling, Dr. Joseph has the solution for you.
Full Mouth Replacement
If years of poor oral health or a traumatic injury have left you with complete tooth loss, Dr. Joseph has the solutions you need to restore a beautiful smile. Besides traditional dentures, he can help you enjoy the security of dental implants. Strategically placed implant posts are inserted into your jawbone to anchor your denture. You will enjoy the next best thing to your real teeth using a treatment that can last for several decades.
