Restorative DentistryProspect, CT

Our oral health is a crucial component of our overall well-being, a truth that we recognize and value at Capozzi Dental Group. Life, however, often takes an unexpected turn. Teeth may suffer from damage, decay, or the relentless wear and tear of time. When such challenges occur, restorative dentistry steps in to renew your smile’s health, functionality, and beauty.

At Capozzi Dental Group, located in the heart of Prospect, CT, our expert team, led by skilled professionals, is dedicated to restoring your smile to its prime condition. We understand that each patient is unique, and so we offer customized treatments that are as individual as the smiles we serve. From minor repairs to more complex procedures, we use advanced techniques and high-quality materials to ensure the best possible results.

Composite Fillings

Among restorative procedures, composite fillings are a frequently chosen treatment. Whether due to decay or minor tooth damage, the affected tooth can be treated and reinforced using composite fillings, offering protection against further issues. As these fillings blend seamlessly with the natural shade of your teeth, not only is your tooth function restored, but the aesthetic harmony of your smile is maintained too.

Aftercare For Your Composite Fillings

At Capozzi Dental Group, we consider the well-being of our patients to be of paramount importance. Providing you with clear, comprehensive information throughout your treatment journey is a part of our commitment to your dental health. After having a new filling placed, it is essential to know what to expect and how to care for your restoration.

Until The Anesthesia Wears Off

Post-treatment, you might experience numbness for a few hours as the anesthesia gradually wears off. During this period, protecting yourself from accidentally biting or injuring your lips, cheeks, gums, or tongue is critical. Be cautious when chewing food, drinking hot beverages, or smoking to avoid unintentional harm to your oral tissues.

Adjusting To Your New Filling

Even with meticulous polishing and precision in adjusting the bite, a new filling may feel slightly different in your mouth initially. It’s not uncommon for a patient to require additional minor smoothing or further bite adjustments. If you feel any discomfort, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Sensitivity After Filling

Temporary sensitivity to hot or cold foods and beverages is typical after the placement of a new filling. This sensitivity usually subsides within a few days. However, if it worsens or if you experience persistent discomfort or any other symptoms, we urge you to contact our office immediately.

Caring For Your New Filling

We use the most advanced, durable filling materials in our restorative procedures. With proper oral hygiene and routine dental care, your new composite filling should serve you well for many years. However, extensive decay or injury to the tooth under the filling may eventually require replacement or additional dental treatment. Our team will work closely with you to monitor your restoration’s health and durability and ensure your smile remains strong and vibrant.

Root Canal Therapy

When decay or damage extends deep into the tooth, threatening the inner pulp or nerve tissue, root canal therapy becomes necessary. This treatment involves careful removal of the infected tissue, followed by a thorough cleaning and sealing of the tooth’s interior, thereby preventing further infection. Root canal procedures at Capozzi Dental Group are conducted with utmost precision and care to ensure minimal discomfort and maximum preservation of the tooth’s structure.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are a versatile restorative solution that can enhance a tooth’s strength, appearance, and overall functionality. Whether your tooth is discolored, misshapen, or severely worn down, dental crowns can effectively address the problem. Each crown at Capozzi Dental Group is customized to match your natural teeth, promoting an undisturbed, beautiful smile.

Tooth Extraction

At times, a tooth may need to be extracted due to severe damage, decay, or as part of orthodontic treatment. Our team at Capozzi Dental Group ensures that tooth extractions are performed gently and effectively, prioritizing patient comfort and care. Post-extraction, we guide you through the healing process and discuss suitable replacement options, such as implants or bridges, to restore your smile’s full function.

Dental Bridges

For those missing one or more teeth, dental bridges serve as an effective solution. They consist of false teeth held in place by the adjacent natural teeth, filling the gap and preventing the remaining teeth from shifting out of position. Dental bridges restore your smile’s natural look and maintain the shape of your face while facilitating proper chewing and speaking functions.

TMD Treatment

Temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD) can cause discomfort and functional issues with the jaw joint and the muscles controlling jaw movement. At Capozzi Dental Group, we offer specialized TMD treatments to alleviate discomfort and improve jaw function. Our team employs a comprehensive approach that can include oral appliances, relaxation techniques, and lifestyle changes to address your specific needs.

Sleep Apnea Treatment

Sleep apnea, a condition characterized by repeated interruptions in breathing during sleep, can severely impact your health and well-being. At Capozzi Dental Group, we offer customized oral appliances that gently reposition your jaw during sleep, helping to keep your airway open and enabling a more peaceful, restful night’s sleep.
