Restorative Dentistry

If the teeth are decayed or damaged, it can lead to a domino effect of problems. The field of restorative dentistry focuses on reestablishing proper oral health and function to improve your overall quality of life.

Our holistic dentistry team at Well Rooted Dentistry offers a wide range of restorative dentistry services to eliminate bacteria and promote optimal health and wellness. We routinely see patients in the Providence, RI, area, but we also provide top-level concierge service to individuals across the country.

Metal-Free Fillings

Small cavities must be repaired with dental fillings. Traditionally, these restorations were made from amalgam – a mixture of tin, silver, zinc, copper, and mercury. At Well Rooted Dentistry, we exclusively place metal-free fillings that are custom matched to your natural tooth shade.

Not only are we a metal-free practice, but we are also a mercury-safe practice. This means that we utilize the methods outlined in the Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique (SMART), which minimizes mercury exposure during treatment.

Metal-Free Crowns and Bridges

Moderate to severe decay is often treated with a ceramic onlay or a dental crown. This custom restoration fits over a portion of or the entire tooth to provide strength and protection. In holistic dentistry, we create metal-free crowns made from biocompatible materials.

Bridges are used to replace a row of missing teeth. Like our crowns, these restorations are made with metal-free materials to promote optimal oral health.

Tooth Extractions

Occasionally, a tooth is too decayed or damaged to treat successfully. In these cases, removing the tooth may be the best option. At Well Rooted Dentistry, we perform both simple and complex tooth extractions. Our dentists use only the latest, most advanced techniques to minimize pain and expedite recovery. As a holistic dentistry practice, we offer:

  • PRF therapy: Platelet-rich fibrin is obtained from the patient’s blood. This living biomaterial is placed at the surgical site to promote tissue healing and regeneration.
  • Ozone therapy: We routinely use ozone gas, which helps eliminate oral bacteria and initiate healing.
  • Laser therapy: Following extractions, our dentists use a special laser to sterilize the socket. This also helps reduce postoperative bleeding.

Orthodontics

Straight teeth not only enhance your appearance, they also help improve your overall oral health. When the teeth are in proper alignment, they are easier to clean. Correct alignment also ensures that the teeth do not endure excessive biting forces, giving you the best chance for healthy teeth and gums.

At Well Rooted Dentistry, we offer SureSmile® dental aligners. This system gradually moves the teeth into their desired positions using clear, removable trays. SureSmile can correct most of the same orthodontic issues as traditional braces, and the treatment length is about the same. These aligners are an excellent option for teen and adult patients who want to straighten their teeth without wearing metal braces.
