What is Restorative Dentistry?
Restorative dentistry is a field of dentistry that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of treatment that have been damaged by trauma or disease.
Restorative dentistry can include procedures such as a dental crown, implants, fillings, and bridges.
Dental fillings are the most common type of dental restoration procedure. Fillings are fairly straightforward; the dentist will use a drill to remove the affected portion of the tooth. The dentist then cleans and prepares the tooth for the filling material. Fillings are usually performed to repair the tooth after the decayed material has been removed from a cavity.
A dental crown restoration, or "cap," is a type of dental restoration that encapsulates the exposed portion of the tooth. Crowns are often prescribed to strengthen a tooth following decay, trauma, or root canal therapy, but dental crowns are also used for cosmetic purposes.
If you have a missing tooth, a dental implant is currently the best replacement option. Since the post of the implant integrates with the jawbone, dental implants offer comparable strength and stability to natural teeth. This means you can enjoy a wide variety of foods as well as smile and speak with confidence.
