What is restorative dentistry?
Restorative dentistry is a branch of dentistry that seeks to replace missing or damaged teeth to restore health, functionality and aesthetics to your smile. These problems may arise from injury/trauma, natural defects, or lack of oral hygiene. The most common issues range from:
- Missing teeth
- Chips or cracks
- Misaligned teeth
- Gaps in teeth
- Tooth decay
- Fractured teeth
Why are restorative dentistry procedures important?
The most important reason we restore and replace missing or broken teeth is to maintain the health and function of your mouth.
Restoring broken teeth can:
- Prevents further breakdown of from decay
- Can stop sensitivity of the teeth
- Can strengthen and protect the teeth (crowns)
There are also more long term benefits to replacing missing teeth, such as:
- Filling and maintaining empty spaces in the mouth to keep teeth properly aligned
- Replacing teeth to change any deformations or deficiencies makes it easier to maintain good oral care habits to prevent build up of plaque
- Replacing missing teeth with implants can maintain the underlying alveolar bone (jawbone) for longer
- Restore appearance and self esteem
Restorative Dentistry Procedures
Crowns And Bridges
Unlike removable appliances like dentures, we offer you the more permanent solution in crowns and bridges. In addition to strengthening a damaged tooth, a crown may be used to restore its shape, appearance or alignment. Ceramic or porcelain crowns offer aesthetically pleasing dental restorations that are robust and long lasting. Porcelain crowns and bridges can be colour matched to blend in with the rest of your natural teeth.
Dental implants are small titanium posts that are strategically placed in the root of the missing tooth. The inserted implants are fused into the actual bone to form a root-like structure that anchor the prosthetic replacement tooth in place. Compared to dentures and bridges, dental implants present the more permanent solution for replacing one or more missing tooth. They also provide the most natural form of teeth replacement. Dental implants look and feel like real teeth – it’s virtually impossible to tell apart an implant-supported restoration from natural teeth. They also restore the original functions of your former teeth – like biting and chewing – so you no longer have to avoid certain types of food.
