Restorative dentistry involves the restoration of oral and dental tissues for patients. It includes operative dentistry, or filling of teeth to resolve cavities; periodontal dentistry, or the prevention and treatment of gum disease; endodontics, or root canal treatment; and prosthodontics, or the replacement of missing teeth.
Patients who have chosen restorative dentistry may call this sort of dentistry a "smile makeover." A beautiful smile can increase your confidence and self-esteem, giving you an edge in your everyday activities by improving your professional and personal image. A smile makeover is a complete reconstruction of your smile, from the inside-out with a comprehensive analysis and redesign of your gum tissue and teeth.
Oral surgery involves the diagnosis and surgical treatment of dental diseases. Dr. Kroll's in-house oral surgery can help fix injuries and defects involving hard and soft tissues. Through oral surgery, Dr. Kroll can address problems from the removal of infected teeth to the repair of dental trauma. Drs. Phil and Steph Kroll perform many oral surgery procedures in their office and utilize many dental sedation (dental anesthesia) techniques available to make your visit a gentle and relaxing experience.
Dental trauma is injury to the mouth, including teeth, lips, gums, tongue, and jawbones. The most common dental trauma is a broken or lost tooth. Dental trauma may be inflicted in a number of ways: contact sports, motor vehicle accidents, fights, falls, eating hard foods, drinking hot liquids, and other such mishaps. As oral tissues are highly sensitive, injuries to the mouth are typically very painful. Dental trauma should receive prompt treatment from a highly trained and qualified dentist.
