You’ve likely heard of most dental restoration options. Dental crowns, bridges, dentures, and even dental implants are fairly well known. However, two conservative solutions that many patients have never heard of are inlays and onlays. These restorative dentistry solutions allow us to maximize existing dental structures and keep smiles whole and healthy. Inlays and onlays offer patients a middle ground between fillings to repair very small areas and dental crowns to repair the whole tooth.

Dr. L. King Scott and his team understand that your days are long and busy. Between work and school, family and friends, there hardly seems to be enough hours in the day to get everything done. And by the end of the day, all you want is your comfy bed and soft pillow. There is, however, one more important thing you have to do before your go to bed. Your nightly oral hygiene routine is critically important not only to your oral health, but your general health, too. And that routine must include flossing. Brushing your teeth alone does not remove the plaque that can build up between your teeth throughout the day. Proper flossing helps to remove this plaque, which if left to accumulate can lead to gum disease and systemic ailments.

So, you have a missing tooth problem. It’s okay, there are a lot of patients that are in your shoes. Missing teeth can be brought about by many factors, but it’s important to do something about it. Missing teeth can be downright terrible for your oral health. There are plenty of reasons why, and we’ll get into those a little later. Missing teeth can be the difference between a healthy and unhealthy mouth. Those spaces that are left by missing teeth are like parties for bacteria to attend. Any type of bacteria that sits and gets comfortable in your mouth can lead to infections and other dental problems that can become quite costly and detrimental to your overall health.

Think about the amount of work your teeth do throughout the day. Your teeth are constantly pressing against each other, mashing food, chewing gum, going through extreme temperature changes, etc. Because of the amount of work your teeth do over the years, you will most likely need restorative dentistry at some point in your life. Whether it’s a filling or a crown, your teeth will need to be restored to their original, strong state. The office of L. King Scott, D.D.S. offers comprehensive, unparalleled restorative dentistry for those who live in the Monroe, LA area.
Achieve Your Dream Smile with Wonderful Care
Restorative dentistry is essential for keeping your oral health in pristine condition. Even with regular brushing and flossing habits, your teeth will experience tremendous pressure from eating, face bacterial buildups, and a host of other factors that can cause wear and tear. Dr. King, a phenomenal professional with extensive training, and his team of seasoned experts offer a list of treatments to combat issues that can potentially occur throughout the years, including:
- TMJ/TMD Therapy: Clenching and grinding teeth can lead to severe jaw problems. We can alleviate the pain with a custom, personalized dental appliance.
- Inlays and Onlays: Much like fillings, inlays and onlays fill a crack or fracture in a tooth. They fit on top or in between teeth to provide strength and fix your damaged tooth.
- Extractions: If a tooth is beyond repair (excessively decayed teeth, infected or broken teeth, etc.), we can extract the tooth. We will make the removal painless and straightforward, never drawing out the procedure or causing anguish.
- Crowns: These durable caps can restore structure, strength, and function to cracked, broken, decayed, or worn teeth.
- Root Canal Therapy: Don’t be afraid! We know this procedure is infamous for being painful, but with modern advancements and our dental prowess, we can remove the infection for a tooth in a painless treatment.
- Full-Mouth Reconstruction: If your mouth has experienced extensive decay or other problems, we can restore your smile to a beautiful, natural-looking state with our reconstructive procedure.
- And much more
