Whether you are missing teeth, or you have a broken tooth, restoring your smile can improve your self-confidence and your oral health. Henrich Dental in Tulsa provides comprehensive restorative dental services for the treatment and restoration of a wide range of dental concerns affecting the health and function of your smile. We strive to provide personalized treatment plans tailored to the needs and goals of each individual patient.
Patients will undergo a comprehensive oral health examination with Dr. Henrich to determine which treatments will provide the most effective results. Using a combination of cosmetic and restorative procedures, our goal is to achieve optimal, lasting results in the most conservative manner possible.
Benefits of Restorative Dentistry
Many dental concerns can affect the way you speak, eat, smile, and interact with the world around you. Damaged, broken, missing, or even crooked teeth can impact your quality of life as well as your oral and overall health. Understanding the implications of restorative oral health concerns can help patients see the benefits of restorative dentistry in the long term maintenance of optimal dental health.
Missing teeth- Missing teeth compromise the structure of your entire smile. Even one missing tooth can cause teeth to shift, become loose, increases your risk of gum disease and additional tooth loss. Left untreated, missing teeth can cause bone loss, facial regression and sagging. Replacing missing teeth as soon after loss as possible can prevent additional oral health complications from developing. Dr. Henrich offers dental implants, dentures, bridges and dental crowns for the replacement of missing teeth.
Crooked teeth- Crooked teeth are often talked about as a cosmetic dental concern. While crooked teeth can be visually unappealing, they also pose a risk to a patient’s oral health. Crooked teeth are more difficult to clean and can increase the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. Crooked teeth may also compromise the structure and stability of a healthy bite. Patients who suffer from chronic jaw pain often have crooked teeth or some degree of malocclusion. Invisalign clear aligners can be used to straighten crooked teeth in a discreet way.
Broken & damaged teeth- A small chip or crack in a tooth may not seem like an immediate threat to your oral health. It is important to know that any damage to the tooth enamel can compromise the integrity and health of the entire tooth. Once the tooth enamel is breached, the tooth becomes more susceptible to infection and decay. Small chips or cracks can also worsen and eventually require a tooth extraction. Porcelain veneers, dental bonding, or dental crowns can be used to repair a damaged tooth before it becomes infected. Dr. Henrich always strives to provide the most conservative treatment options possible to help support the natural stability of the smile.
Sedation Dentistry Options
For the optimal comfort of our patients, we offer innovative sedation dentistry options. Restorative dentistry is often avoided by patients due to dental anxiety or fear of the dentist. Dr. Henrich takes extra steps to help our patients feel as comfortable as possible during their dentist office visit. Sedation dentistry helps patients feel relaxed while remaining alert during treatment. Our dental care team is often able to perform multiple treatments in one sitting while patients are sedated, saving time, money and stress.
For patients with dental anxiety who also fear needles, Dr. Henrich offers Kovanaze. Kovanaze is the first no-needle anesthetic that is easily administered as a nose spray. Patients are able to feel completely relaxed and calm during their procedure without the fear or added stress of experiencing needles.
During your personalized restorative consultation, Dr. Henrich will discuss all aspects of your treatment plan including sedation options.
