Restorative Dentistry West Los Angeles

Mouth Reconstruction

Full mouth reconstruction involves a series of restorative and cosmetic treatments aimed at accomplishing a patient’s aesthetic and health-related goals. Dr. Carlston’s approach to full mouth reconstruction is unique, however, because he places an emphasis on biomimetic dentistry- creating the best results, with the least amount of changes to the natural tooth structure. During a consultation at his West Los Angeles practice, Dr. Carlston will discuss your restorative dentistry treatment options with you and analyze your specific case. Together, you’ll develop an effective treatment plan which may include a combination of dental procedures.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are considered the most comprehensive treatment option for patients who need to replace missing teeth. Implants are small, titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jaw, and act as a replacement root for synthetic teeth. Although receiving dental implants can be an involving process, this restorative dentistry option is comfortable, durable, and long lasting, and provides the foundation for a natural-looking smile.

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are another solution for patients who are missing teeth. A dental bridge consists of a replacement tooth, or teeth, which is held in place by two dental crowns that are placed on the adjacent natural teeth. This is an attractive treatment option for patients who are only missing a few teeth, or those who desire a less-invasive alternative to dental implants. Using CEREC® technology, Dr. Carlston can fit and place dental crowns in one simple appointment.

Endodontics

More commonly referred to as root canal therapy, endodontics is the process of treating an infected tooth root. In line with his commitment to biomimetic dentistry techniques, Dr. Carlston takes all measures in order to avoid tooth extraction. When a tooth’s root becomes infected, it must be addressed immediately to prevent infection from spreading to other areas of the teeth and gums. Root canal therapy effectively eliminates decay and is the first step in restoring complete oral health.

Dentures

Replacing missing teeth is integral to preserving a patient’s oral health and restoring their self-confidence. Implants can be used to replace a few missing teeth, or rebuild the structures of the entire mouth. At his West Los Angeles restorative dentistry practice, Dr. Carlston offers complete and partial dentures to his patients. In addition, he offers immediate dentures which allow for tooth extraction and denture placement in one convenient office visit, saving patients the discomfort and embarrassment of a flawed smile.
