What is Restorative Dentistry?
As we age, our teeth become weaker. Dental cavities and broken or missing teeth can cause sensitivity to hot and cold foods and beverages. Damaged or weakened teeth can also erode your self-confidence. Restorative dental services are used to resolve the imperfections that age has left on your smile. At our office, restorative dentistry includes a variety of dental services that repair imperfect teeth to their proper working order. These services include:
- Dental fillings
- Dental crowns
- Dental implants
- Implant dentures
- Root canal treatments
These dental services are used for a variety of conditions. When you have a dental cavity, your doctor will fill the cavity, protecting the inner layers of the tooth from infection. Dental crowns may be a solution for teeth that have been significantly broken or cracked. A crown will cover your tooth completely, restoring your tooth’s shape and texture with an artificial cap.
For teeth that have been lost, a dental bridge can be used to span the gap between your existing teeth. Dental implants and implant dentures may also be a way to replace teeth that you have lost. Dr. Wright or Dr. Heron will recommend the best service for you, depending on the structure of your mouth and your other dental needs.
When needed, extractions and root canal treatments are handled with the same compassionate care as all of the dental services we provide. Dr. Wright or Dr. Heron will engage you in the assessment and treatment of your smile every step of the way.
What are the Benefits of Restorative Dentistry?
Cavities and other oral conditions may cause sensitivity to hot and cold foods. A broken tooth collects debris from meals and can contribute to bad breath. Moreover, the teeth are one of the few parts of the body which do not heal themselves. Once damaged, a tooth’s condition will continue to degrade until it’s lost completely.
Restorative dental services improve the health and overall look of your smile. When you invest in restorative dentistry, you not only resolve the unfavorable condition, you also feel better. If you have missing or broken teeth, a restorative dental service can restore your smile and your self-confidence at the same time.
Dr. Wright or Dr. Heron will examine your teeth, utilizing dental imaging to get a better picture of the shape and structure of your mouth. Then the dentist will review his or her findings with you and will recommend a suitable treatment plan to return your smile to an optimal state of oral health.
