Dr. Rene Aviles is committed to providing the most advanced restorative dentistry procedures. For this reason, he provides state-of-the-art dental implants and implant-supported restorations. Implants can replace one or more missing teeth, and they can even form a stable base for a full denture.
DENTAL CROWNS AND BRIDGES
Crowns, made of metal, porcelain, or porcelain-fused-to-metal, encapsulate damaged or misshapen teeth. Bridges, made from the same materials, replace missing teeth, and they are typically held in place by crowns. Implant-supported crowns and bridges are also available.
If you have been missing teeth for some time or if you suffer from advanced gum disease, your jawbone may already have begun to recede. To maintain your facial structure and allow you to receive dental implants, Dr. Aviles performs bone grafting.
Custom-crafted dentures can restore your dental function, smile, facial contours, and self-confidence. We offer several types of dentures. No matter which one you choose, you will receive a beautiful, lifelike restoration that fits comfortably, yet securely, in your mouth.
ROOT CANAL THERAPY
If dental decay spreads, the bacteria could eventually infect the soft pulp inside your tooth. During root canal therapy, Dr. Aviles will remove damaged tissues and thoroughly clean the inside of your tooth. Dr. Aviles gentle touch and effective anesthetics ensure your comfort.
When you have a cavity, a filling can stop the spread of decay and strengthen the outer structure of your tooth. At Palm City Dentistry, we prefer tooth-colored composite fillings. Unlike traditional amalgam, this material blends with the natural shade of your smile.
INLAYS AND ONLAYS
If your cavity is too large for a filling, but your tooth does not have enough damage to warrant a crown, the dentist will typically recommend an inlay or onlay. These custom-created porcelain restorations are placed on the biting surfaces of your molars, covering cavities and restoring your bite.
Full mouth reconstruction is a uniquely personalized treatment. If you have extensive damage, you can choose two or more restorative procedures to renew your dental health. Dr. Aviles will help you select the optimal procedures, but he will never recommend more treatment than necessary.
Gum disease, which occurs when bacteria accumulates below your gum line, can cause inflammation and irritation, as well as tooth loss and a receding jawbone. Fortunately, Dr. Aviles offers effective laser therapy, using a highly precise laser to eliminate pockets of bacteria from your gums.
Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder occurs when your jaw joints become damaged or the nearby muscles and ligaments become inflamed. Once he understands the cause of your TMJ disorder, the doctor will recommend a nighttime orthotic, or splint, braces, or a combination of treatments.
