Here’s Why You Would Need Restorative Dentistry

People who need restorative dental care will either have damaged or missing teeth. The goal is to save as many teeth as possible and to create a look that is the most natural. Restorative dental care can also help to keep your teeth in the correct biting position, preventing any potential problems in the future.

A general dentist can treat people and do restorative teeth services and other oral treatments. All ages can make use of restorative dentistry if the patient hasn’t looked after their teeth or an accident has occurred. 

What Types of Restorative Dentistry Procedures are there?

There are around seven different procedures that can be done by a restorative dentist. Below is a breakdown of each procedure and what gets done in each.

  • Bridges: Dental bridges is a restorative procedure that fully covers three or more teeth by only replacing one or two teeth. Dental bridges are used as a treatment for congenitally missing teeth and teeth that have been extracted.
  • Dentures: Dentures are prosthetics and are either fixed or removable. Dentures are usually custom-made and are the most commonly used solution when a patient loses all their teeth.
  • Fillings: Dental fillings are the most common solution to restore minor to moderate damage such as cavities, cracks, and broken and worn teeth.
  • Crowns: Dental crowns are metal or tooth-colored restorations that replace substantial structure in the tooth, which is usually caused by root canals, tooth decay, and fractures.
  • Inlays and Onlays: Inlays and onlays involve the process of partial tooth-colored or gold coverings being used to restore missing areas on teeth.
  • Implants: Dental implants are used after a tooth has been extracted and the hole in the gum is needed to be filled. It is commonly used to replace a whole tooth and is implanted directly into the jaw bone.
  • Bonding: Bonding is the procedure that uses composite materials, like glass and plastic, to fill cavities, repair cracked teeth, cover discolored teeth, and fill any small gaps between any teeth.
Are There Any Risks Associated with Restorative Dentistry?

The most common risk during these procedures is the discomfort and sensitivity that occurs after the procedure. However, in rare cases, the area can become infected, or you can have an allergic reaction to the materials.
