Restorative Dentistry Services
Dental implants in Atlanta are a popular and effective long-term solution for replacing missing teeth. They consist of titanium posts surgically implanted into the jawbone, serving as sturdy foundations for artificial teeth (crowns) that look and function like natural teeth. Dr. Flax offers several dental implant solutions, such as Teeth In A Day, to help our patients fall back in love with their smiles.
CEREC Dental Crowns and Bridges
At Flax Dental, our specialized team uses the CEREC system to fabricate your dental crown and bridge right in our office. We can often create and fit these restorations in a single visit to our Atlanta dental office.
- CEREC dental crowns, also known as tooth caps, are custom tooth-shaped coverings used to restore damaged teeth’s shape, size, strength, and appearance. They’re often placed over severely decayed or fractured teeth.
- CEREC dental bridges replace one or more missing teeth. They consist of artificial teeth (pontics) anchored to adjacent natural teeth or dental implants, bridging the gap caused by missing teeth.
Dentures are removable replacements for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. Two types of dentures are available at Flax Dental:
- Partial dentures (for several missing teeth)
- Complete dentures (for all teeth)
Dental fillings repair teeth with cavities or minor damage. Dr. Flax uses this non-invasive treatment to help patients restore their smiles without gold or silver amalgam fillings, creating a more aesthetically pleasing cavity restoration.
Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy is a procedure to save a severely infected or decayed tooth. The process involves removing the infected pulp and nerve, cleaning the inside of the tooth, and sealing it to prevent further infection.
Laser dentistry is a modern dental technique using focused beams of light energy, or lasers, to perform many dental procedures. Flax Dental’s laser dentistry solutions offer a minimally invasive, precise approach to treating various dental conditions, including gum disease, tooth decay, gum reshaping, and teeth whitening.
Dr. Flax incorporates advanced laser dentistry into our Atlanta dental practice because it often results in reduced discomfort, faster healing times, and minimal bleeding compared to traditional techniques.
Bite Relaxation Therapy
Bite relaxation therapy, also called occlusal adjustment or bite equilibration, is a dental procedure that improves the alignment of a patient’s bite. The goal of bite relaxation therapy is to achieve optimal occlusion, which refers to how the teeth fit together when the jaws are closed. When a person’s bite is misaligned or unbalanced, it can lead to various dental issues and discomforts.
During bite relaxation therapy, our Atlanta dentist carefully analyzes the patient’s bite and identifies any areas of interference or misalignment. Using specialized dental instruments, he then adjusts the surfaces of the teeth. The procedure aims to distribute the forces evenly across all teeth, reducing stress on individual teeth and the temporomandibular joint.
Full Mouth Reconstruction
Full mouth reconstruction, also known as full mouth restoration or rehabilitation, is a comprehensive and personalized dental treatment involving the simultaneous restoration of all teeth in both the upper and lower jaws. Dr. Flax addresses dental issues such as missing teeth, severe decay, damaged or worn teeth, gum disease, and bite problems.
The process may include a combination of restorative procedures like dental implants, crowns, bridges, and porcelain veneers to achieve optimal oral health, function, and aesthetics, ultimately providing patients with a renewed and healthy smile.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is restorative dentistry painful?
Dentists perform most restorative procedures while the patient is under local anesthesia, ensuring a comfortable and pain-free experience. After the treatment, mild discomfort or sensitivity is common, but it should subside quickly. Your dentist will provide specific instructions for pain management following your procedure, which may include prescribed pain medications and an aftercare guide.
Are dental restorations noticeable?
No, modern dental restorations blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, making them virtually indistinguishable. Dental crowns, bridges, and implants all look natural and can be customized to match the color, shape, and size of your teeth.
How much does restorative dentistry cost?
The cost of your restorative dentistry procedure will vary depending on numerous factors, which include:
- The location in your mouth
- Your dental insurance coverage
- Supplemental treatments required
- Your dentist’s financing plans
- How many restorations are needed
Is restorative dentistry permanent?
While restorative treatments like dental implants, crowns, bridges, and dentures are designed to be durable and can last for many years, they may not be considered permanent in the same sense as natural teeth. The longevity of restorations depends on various factors, including the patient’s oral hygiene practices, regular dental check-ups, and any changes in their oral health over time.
