If you suffer from chipped, cracked, broken, misshapen, or missing teeth, we may recommend a restorative dental procedure to improve your appearance and tooth functionality. As the name suggests, restorative dentistry is a collection of various dental treatments used to replace or repair damaged or decayed teeth.
You may schedule an appointment with us and expect a perfect dental restoration in the long run.
What are the Advantages of Restorative Dentistry?
Restorative dental procedures make your teeth more functional. You can chew food and talk properly. They also prevent the condition of your teeth from worsening.
The procedures such as dental fillings, root canal, and implants avoid pain and discomfort, thus maintaining your dental health in the years to come.
Restorative dental treatments also preserve your bone strength and improve your aesthetic appearance.
What are the Restorative Dental Procedures?
We will suggest this treatment if you suffer from cavities. Cavities lead to tooth decay and cause severe pain and swelling. During the procedure, we remove such decay and fill the space with the materials such as gold, silver, amalgam, porcelain, or composite resin. As a result, you experience improved tooth functionality.
If your cavity is so deep that it reaches the dental pulp of your teeth, we may perform a root canal treatment to remove such infection and restore your teeth' functionality. A root canal saves your teeth from extraction. It also decreases the chances of further infection.
We place dental crowns on your severely decayed, cracked, or chipped teeth. We shave the outer layer of your teeth a little bit and then place a crown using a dental adhesive. This procedure preserves your tooth root.
Bridges are used to bridge the gap left by your missing teeth and comprise two crowns with artificial suspended teeth. The crowns over your existing teeth serve as an anchor to hold the dental bridge in place.
Dental implants are the most sought-after option to restore your missing tooth. They are titanium posts that act as artificial tooth roots. Implants fuse well to your jawbone and offer strong support to the dental crown. The whole restoration is permanent and doesn't cause any discomfort.
Dentures are a popular treatment option for a few or all missing teeth. They replace the complete or partial arch of your teeth. Your dentures require proper care to maintain them in the long run and avoid damages.
