Restorative Dental Services
Restorative Dentistry focuses on restoring function and form to your bite. This can include services to replace missing teeth and restore the health of your gums and jaw joints. Our Congressional Dental Care team also offers full-service dental implant treatment plans under one roof!
The first step in our restorative dentistry process is for Dr. Sarkarzadeh to conduct a thorough examination. During this exam, he will look for all dental issues that are troubling you. The exam may include x-rays and a thorough dental cleaning.
Next, he will discuss with you which options are available at our dental office. Here he will recommend what we believe to be the most comfortable and least invasive treatment to correct your dental problems.
Our Rockville, MD, dental office offers personalized restorative care! We will work with you to build a treatment plan that fits within your budget, complements your lifestyle, and meets your goals. We offer the range of restorative dentistry necessary to meet your needs and bring back your natural smile, including:
Dental implants are like artificial tooth roots. The implant itself is a small titanium screw. Dr. Sarkarzadeh places it in your jawbone to hold a replacement tooth, denture, or bridge in place. Over time, your jaw bone will grow around the implant, ensuring a strong and secure base for your new replacement tooth or restoration.
Once the implant has fused with the jawbone, Dr. Sarkarzadeh can add a custom-made restoration to it. The final restoration that Dr. Sarkarzadeh provides will match your natural teeth, both in appearance and functionality. You can have a strong and permanent solution for your missing and lost teeth that looks and feels just like your real teeth.
Dental crowns are cap-like dental fittings that our dentist puts on your damaged teeth after restoring them. A dental crown will protect, restore the shape, restore the size, and provide added strength to the damaged tooth.
Crowns can consist of compounds like porcelain, metal, or a combination, but we provide porcelain crowns due to their natural look. Dr. Sarkarzadeh makes dental crowns to order, meaning that no two crowns are alike. Our dental office can help you repair severely decayed, chipped, cracked, or worn-down teeth using a dental crown.
Dental bridges work by bridging the gap created by one or more lost teeth. A dental bridge is a great option if you are missing just one or two teeth and don’t want to leave that gap there.
It consists of two or more crowns on either side of the gap and a false tooth, or pontic, in between. The two crowns on either side will support the bridge and hold it in place because it sits on the natural teeth or dental implants next to the gap. The false tooth sits in the middle to fill the open space.
In essence, the dental bridge creates a sturdy structure that fills in the empty spot and brings back full functionality to your mouth. You will be able to chew and speak properly again!
If you lost most or all of your teeth, Dr. Smith can provide you with dentures. Our team designs them in a way that will fit snugly in only your mouth and give you the ability to comfortably eat, speak, and smile.
We have three types of dentures available at Congressional Dental Care: complete dentures, partial dentures, and implant-supported dentures. When all of your natural teeth are missing, we can provide complete dentures or implant-supported dentures.
When you are missing a few teeth and still still have some healthy teeth, we can provide partial dentures. Partial dentures attach to your existing teeth using metal clasps or other attachments to hold them in place. Our modern dentures are easy to adjust to, feel natural, and look amazing.
Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays are very similar to dental crowns. You can think of them as partial crowns! They are great alternatives to dental crowns when the damage to your tooth is not too severe because they require less prep time, but also cover less.
An inlay is like a puzzle piece that fits into a cavity on the top of a tooth. This is helpful when you have a large cavity but a filling won’t do the job. On the other hand, an onlay is similar but covers a larger area and extends over the edges of the tooth. This is helpful when the decay or damage is more extensive but doesn’t need a full crown to restore it.
Overall, inlays and onlays are best for teeth that need more support than a filling, but it still have enough healthy tooth enamel to avoid a crown.
A temporomandibular joint disorder is a condition that affects the joint that connects your jawbone to your skull. This disorder makes it hard to move your jaw and causes pain and jaw issues.
Fortunately, Dr. Sarkarzadeh has the experience and expertise that you need to address your TMJ symptoms. Some common symptoms include frequent morning headaches, jaw pain and soreness and clicking or popping.
We have several treatments available to help alleviate your TMJ symptoms at Congressional Dental Care. Some of these treatments include oral sleep appliances, orthodontics, and restorative treatments.
Even if you’re not sure that you have a TMJ disorder, you should visit our dentists for an accurate diagnosis and treatment recommendations.
