Chipped, lost, or damaged teeth can have a huge impact on your confidence and even functionality to eat. From a minor tooth repair to a full reconstruction, Restorative Dentistry can help fill in the gaps and get your smile back.
While General Dentistry aims to prevent declines in oral health, sometimes restorative care is necessary. Restorative Dentistry includes procedures that replace or restore teeth and oral structures that assist in eating and show off your smile.
Restorative dentistry is usually performed by a General Dentist who has continued their training to include techniques and treatments which can fix problems in your mouth that have been compromised over time or suddenly due to unexpected trauma.
In more severe cases, general dentists may work with Dental Specialists such as orthodontists, oral and maxillofacial surgeons, and pediatric dentists.
Benefits of Restorative Dentistry can include
- Relieving pain from an abscessed tooth, open cavity, infected tooth nerve (aka root canal), or maxillofacial trauma (such as from a car accident or sports injury)
- Re-establishing lost function of chewing due to long term degeneration of the teeth, or developmental conditions
- Preventing further oral health decline through modern dental treatments
Restorative Dentistry Procedures may include
- Addressing unhealthy tooth decay with porcelain fillings and bonding
- Filling in gaps between teeth and repairing structures on teeth with crowns
- Replacing missing teeth with dentures, implants, and bridges
