Do you have a cracked or chipped tooth? Had a tooth extracted because the decay could not go on unchecked? We can help you smile confidently again with restorative dentistry.
What is restorative dentistry?
Restorative dentistry is the term used by dentists and dental professionals for a range of treatments used to repair or replace damaged teeth. Some of the treatments are as follows:
- Dental implants
- Inlays and onlays
The aim of these treatments is to restore your natural smile and prevent further oral problems down the line.
What do these treatments do?
Restorative dental care can address several dental problems. These treatments can help you manage broken teeth, chipped teeth, missing teeth, infected gums, damaged gum tissue and other similar oral problems.
Why choose these treatments?
Restorative dentistry procedures can help eliminate problems and fill in the gaps in your mouth to keep your teeth aligned and well shaped. They can replace teeth and make it easier for you to maintain good oral habits and this helps prevent the build-up of plaque and associated problems. Restorative work can also help improve your confidence, appearance, self-esteem and help you smile without hesitation.
What are the types of restorative dental care treatments available?
There are primarily two types of restorative dental care treatments – direct and indirect.
Direct restorative dental care involves small procedures that can usually be performed in a single visit to the clinic. Fillings and bonding are two examples of these treatments. They are usually offered for teeth that have suffered small to medium sized damage.
Indirect restorative dental care often involves more detailed procedures to restore teeth that are too damaged to be fixed with more basic restorative treatments. In certain cases, multiple visits may be required or teeth may need to be extracted and replaced with prosthetics in complex cases. Although these treatments may seem complicated, they are commonly carried out, and offer protection and support to teeth.
