What is Restorative Dentistry?
Restorative dentistry includes dental procedures that are intended to restore or repair natural teeth. This often includes teeth that are broken, contain decay, chipped, or weakened in addition to teeth that have been subjected to trauma. If left untreated, many of these issues can lead to even bigger dental concerns.
Different factors may lead to the need for restorative dentistry, such as bruxism, poor oral hygiene habits, and trauma. With the right skill and experience, restorative dentistry procedures can restore teeth back to their beautiful, natural appearance without losing the functionality.
Benefits of Restorative Dentistry
Restoring teeth is important for overall oral health. Taking advantage of restorative dentistry procedures allows young patients to:
- Feel more confident in their appearance.
- Have an aligned bite without jaw pain.
- Feel relief from pain or discomfort due to dental issues.
- Eat without worry – and without pain.
Composite Fillings. These tooth-colored fillings are used to fill in cavities once the decay has been removed. This is one of the most common restorative dentistry procedures.
Pulp Treatment. Tooth decay that makes its way down in the baby tooth can impact the pulp inside the tooth. A pulpectomy is another common procedure in which the pulp is removed and the root canals are cleaned and packed with a material that restores the tooth’s integrity until it falls out and is replaced by a permanent tooth.
Dental Crowns. Crowns are often used to bring restoration to a tooth that has been damaged or decayed. The crown fits over the tooth, enhancing its appearance and restoring its strength.
Extractions. Every now and then, when a tooth cannot be restored, it will be extracted.
