Restorative dentistry is a broad term used to describe many different procedures that restore and repair teeth and gums. It refers to all dental procedures that restore the function and appearance of teeth. It can help improve your oral health by addressing issues that cause pain, discomfort, or embarrassment.
Restorative Dentistry Procedures
Restorative dentistry covers several procedures, including:
When a cavity forms, the cavity must be removed and the tooth repaired with a filling. The filling is tooth-colored and durable, so the tooth will continue to look natural.
The dentist will numb the tooth before removing the decayed area. Then, the dental team will fill the tooth with resin material. The resin is hardened with a curing light.
Crowns and Bridges
A dental crown is a restoration used to cover a tooth and restore its shape, size, and strength. A bridge is a dental restoration that replaces a missing tooth. A dental crown and bridge can be fabricated from porcelain, gold, or dental-grade ceramics. The crown or bridge is custom-made to fit in your smile, and the restorations are bonded to the teeth for a comfortable fit.
Dental implants are a permanent solution for missing teeth. A dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically inserted into your jawbone. Once the post has fused to your natural bone, a replacement tooth will be mounted to the post.
The benefits of dental implants include improved oral health, restoring function, and an improved appearance. Your dental implant will allow you to eat the foods you love and speak clearly.
A denture is a removable dental appliance that can replace multiple missing teeth. Dentures can be full or partial. Full dentures are worn when all of the teeth are missing in a jaw, while partial dentures are worn when only some of the teeth are missing. Dentures are removable but can be removed out at night, for cleaning and while sleeping.
Root Canal Treatment
A root canal procedure is a restorative dentistry procedure that treats infection that occurs inside the tooth. The pulp is the soft tissue inside the tooth that contains blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue.
