Dental Fillings - Restorative Dentistry in Poway

Dental Fillings

Dental fillings are used to repair cavities. Cavities are soft spots of tooth decay that are created by oral bacteria. After a consultation and checkup at our practice, Dr. Chris McKinney will be able to remove the decayed part of the tooth and fill it back in with filling material. This stops additional tooth decay and keeps the tooth strong and resistant to damage in the future. This is a routine dental service at our Poway, CA dental practice.

Dental Bridges - Restorative Dentistry in Poway

Dental Bridges

A dental bridge is a type of dental prosthetic that replaces one or more missing teeth. Bridges are supported by the natural teeth adjacent to the empty space left by the missing tooth or teeth. Unlike dentures, which are removable, bridges are cemented in place.

Bridges are made from a variety of materials, including porcelain, metal, or a combination of both. The type of material used will depend on the location of the missing tooth or teeth, as well as the aesthetic preferences of the patient.

Root Canals - Restorative Dentistry in Poway

Root Canals

A root canal is a treatment used to save a tooth that is infected or inflamed. The procedure involves removing the pulp from the inside of the tooth, cleaning and disinfecting it, then filling and sealing it. This helps to eliminate bacteria from the infected root canal and prevents reinfection of the tooth. It also helps to preserve the natural tooth.

Dentures - Restorative Dentistry in Poway, CA


A denture or a complete denture, as it is often called, is an appliance that is inserted in the mouth, replaces natural teeth and provides support for the cheeks and lips.

The teeth are made of plastic, porcelain or a combination of both. Dentures can be fabricated to fit over endodontically treated teeth and a complete denture can be attached to dental implants to allow for a more secure fit of the appliance.

Dentures over a normal course of time will wear and need to be replaced or relined in order to keep the jaw alignment normal. The alignment will slowly change as the bone and gum ridges recede or shrink due to the extraction of the teeth. Regular dental examinations are still important for the denture wearer so that the oral tissues can be checked for disease or change.
