What is restorative dentistry?

Restorative dentistry is an area of dental practice focused on repairing damaged teeth. It can restore your smile in a way that makes it structurally sound and also aesthetically appealing.

 

Some examples of restorative treatments include:

 

  • Fillings, including tooth-colored fillings
  • Dental crowns
  • Bridges
  • Dental implants
  • Inlays and onlays

 

Full and partial dentures can replace missing teeth and restore a healthy and stable bite. In some cases, teeth that cannot be repaired need to be extracted prior to moving forward with dentures. 

Who needs restorative dentistry?

People find themselves in need of restorative dentistry for a variety of reasons. Some have extensive decay as a result of years of poor dental hygiene or lack of access to high-quality dental care. 

 

Others have experienced a traumatic injury that damaged their teeth. Sports injuries are also a common cause of dental damage, so it’s so important to wear the proper protective gear during practice and play. 

 

You can also develop dental problems due to certain medications or medical treatments. In those cases, a full mouth reconstruction may be the best course of action, which involves a combination of treatments that address numerous dental health problems. 

How can I take the best care of my teeth after restoration work?

Once you complete your restorative treatments, you want to do everything in your power to preserve those results. Your dentist works with you to create a solid oral hygiene routine that keeps your teeth healthy and strong and prevents decay. 

 

You can also explore options like custom-fitted mouthguards to wear while participating in sports or fitness pursuits. Nightguards help protect your teeth from nighttime grinding (bruxism) and clenching.
