Restorative Dentistry Procedures
When it comes to oral health, it is important to take both preventative and reactive measures to care for your teeth. Dr. Kilimitzoglou works with patients to help them maintain the health of their teeth and gums. However, when the health of the mouth is compromised, Dr. K can offer an array of restorative dentistry procedures to preserve the appearance and health of his patients’ teeth. Below are a few of the restorative dentistry procedures that ESI Dental offers. These procedures alleviate patient pain, provide an aesthetically-pleasing look and prevent further health issues from arising.
Full Mouth Restoration
Full mouth restoration encompasses a number of treatments that are designed to restore a patient’s oral health. Full mouth restoration is performed when a patient has experienced significant trauma or infection. The type of procedures performed during full mouth restoration vary based on the patient, but can include the placement of bridges, veneers, or implants, as well as bone or gum grafts, and other cosmetic and restorative procedures. Full mouth restoration is not a quick fix, but it is a comprehensive one. Dr. Kilimitzoglou is committed to producing healthy, natural-looking results and following through with each of his patients.
Teeth-in-an-Hour™ is a revolutionary way for patients to receive dental implants. Using computer-aided technology known as Noble Guide™, Dr. Kilimitzoglou is able to get a 3D model of the patient’s mouth, enabling him to perform a more precise, less-invasive dental implant procedure than ever before. Both the implant and restorative tooth can be placed in just one hour. Teeth-in-an-Hour™ provides immediate esthetics and function while significantly reducing patient healing time.
Endodontics, more commonly known as root canal therapy, is a procedure in which Dr. Kilimitzoglou removes nerves from an infected tooth’s root. This procedure effectively saves your natural tooth by removing the infection and preventing it from spreading. Dr. K is experienced in endodontics and has helped numerous patients preserve their natural teeth through root canal therapy.
Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays are used to restore the strength of a tooth that has been affected by decay. These fillings can be made of gold or porcelain and are custom fit for each patient. Onlays are used when tooth structure has been affected, involving one or more of the tooth’s cusps, whereas inlays are used when the damage or decay is more confined.
Soft Tissue Graft
oft tissue grafting is a procedure that is performed to maintain the integrity of the gums. The gums are vital in preventing bacteria from spreading throughout the teeth and causing further damage. If a portion of the gums begins to deteriorate, Dr. Kilimitzoglou can graft gum tissue from the roof of the mouth to place in the affected area. This helps to protect the teeth and safeguard against further infection.
As a skilled dentist and fellow of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, Dr. Kilimitzoglou is able to successfully perform bone grafting with precision and skill. This delicate procedure adds bone to jaws that lack density or have been deteriorated by decay, enabling Dr. K to move forward with a dental implant procedure. This surgery allows Dr. K to provide dental implants to patients who have previously been dismissed as candidates for the procedure.
