Restorative Dental Treatment Options
Treatment begins with a thorough oral exam and treatment plan. Your dental restoration will include your desires, proven dental techniques, and materials to give you that smile you’ve longed for, while restoring optimal oral health. These options may include the cosmetic reshaping of teeth, bonding, tooth-colored fillings, veneers, porcelain crowns and bridges, partials, and dental implants.
During your restorative treatment and continuing preventive care, we keep prevention of further disease in mind by discussing diet and nutrition, your home dental health care regimen, destructive habits such as clenching and grinding, and how health issues affect your teeth and gums.
Who Needs Restorative Dentistry?
The goal of restorative dentistry is to help restore function and aesthetics to your smile. If you have missing teeth without restorative dentistry, your existing teeth can shift out of alignment as your jawbone begins to resorb without a tooth root. We often use fillings and crowns to protect areas where decay has occurred, while a dental bridge replaces one or more missing teeth.
We use Implants when multiple teeth are missing or when an existing tooth needs replacement due to injury or decay. Your dentist may recommend extraction followed by an implant or a removable appliance such as a partial for severely damaged teeth. While each individual should follow their dentist’s recommendations, it is also crucial for them to inform their hygienist about any concerns they may have with their bite or functionality during routine visits.
Why is Restorative Dentistry Important?
Restorative dentistry is an essential part of maintaining oral health. It helps repair teeth damaged or decayed due to accidents, age, or illness. When a tooth becomes unhealthy, it can make eating and speaking difficult. You’ll regain full function when proper form and alignment are re-established by restoring health to the tooth.
Without regular visits and restorative dental care, the damage to your teeth could be irreversible. Restorative dentistry solves many problems like decay, worn enamel, and missing teeth. These issues can be managed with a comprehensive approach to keep your mouth healthy for years. Even small repairs, such as dental fillings, can help strengthen your teeth and prevent further damage.
What's the Difference Between Restorative Dentistry and Cosmetic Dentistry?
Restorative dentistry is concerned with restoring the function of your teeth and mouth, while cosmetic dentistry aims to improve the appearance of your smile.
