What Is Restorative Dentistry?

Restorative dentistry refers to all procedures and treatments that restore a tooth or teeth to good oral health. In the case of missing teeth, restorative dentistry includes the use of prosthodontics, which is the branch of dentistry that focuses on the design, fitting, and placement of artificial teeth or structures such as dental implants, bridges, or dentures.  

Benefits of Restorative Dentistry

All restorative dental treatments aim to restore a tooth to good health and function. Restorative dentistry aims to preserve natural teeth wherever possible. As such, the type of restoration that you may need will depend upon the condition of a tooth, teeth, or gums. Fortunately, even severely damaged, decayed, and infected teeth can often be saved, with restorative treatments.

Restorative Dental Procedures Offered

Our dental practice provides general dentistry, restorative dentistry, and cosmetic dentistry. We offer the following restorative dental procedures:

Dental Crowns

Dental Crowns

A dental crown is necessary to preserve a natural tooth that has significant decay that is too large or deep for a filling to sufficiently treat. A dental crown is also required to protect a tooth after a root canal.

Dental Bridges

A dental bridge replaces a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth in a row. It is used to restore your chewing, speaking, and eating capabilities. A dental bridge places a crown in the gap left by a missing tooth and suspends it in place by anchoring to dental implants, adjacent teeth, or adjacent crowns.

Dental Implants

Dental Implant Restorations

Dental implants are the best solution to replace missing teeth. A biocompatible screw implanted into your jaw will attach to a false tooth, to mimic the function of a natural tooth root, and the appearance of a natural tooth.

Dental Fillings

Composite Fillings

Dental fillings are required to treat decay in teeth. Fillings can prevent a tooth that has experienced significant decay from breaking.

Root Canals

If a tooth becomes severely decayed or develops an infection, a root canal will be necessary to rid the tooth of bacteria, prevent infection and decay from spreading, and prevent the tooth from further damage and infection. A root canal uses a crown to safeguard the tooth after the infection and decay have been cleaned and treated.

Dentures are a type of restorative dentistry that may be necessary if you’ve lost many teeth. Dentures today fit much better than dentures from the past. At our practice, we use state-of-the-art dental technologies and software to digitally design your dentures for a great fit and natural appearance.

Treatments included in a smile makeover will depend upon your unique conditions or imperfections. Procedures may include dental crowns, implants, bridges, tooth-colored fillings, dental bonding, veneers, and more.

Frequently Asked Questions About Restorative Dentistry

Is it better to fix or extract a tooth?

Whenever possible, all efforts to save natural teeth should be exhausted before extracting a tooth. When teeth are removed, the jawbone will begin to recede. If you require an extraction, it’s best to consider a dental implant.

Do you treat children at your dental office?

Yes. We provide restorative dental care for children and adults.

Do you offer weekend appointments?

Yes. We are open every other Saturday from 8:00 am -2:00 pm. We also begin seeing patients at 8:00 am during the week.
