What Is Restorative Dentistry?

Restorative dentistry is an oral management involving use of any dental procedure which aims at repairing or replacing teeth. Restorative procedures include cavity fillings, root canals, and even dental implants. Generally, restorative dentistry aims to restore the function of the teeth as well as to restore their appearance. In some cases it’s one or the other, and in some cases it’s both.

Types OF Restorative Dentistry Services

There are various types of treatments within Restorative Dentistry services that involve either repair or replacement of teeth depending on the condition. Some of the most common methods include –

1. Porcelain Dental Crowns

Porcelain dental crowns have many uses, they fix gaps narrowing, teeth lightening, and reduce crowding in the mouth. They can also be used to improve the outward appearance of the teeth.

Porcelain dental crowns can be color-matched to your adjacent teeth and look like normal teeth. Porcelain crowns can be a good choice for front or back teeth.

2. Dental Implant

A dental implant is a surgical method in which the missing tooth is replaced with an artificial tooth root. This root is usually made up of biocompatible materials like titanium or Zirconia. 

The process of dental Implant involves surgically installing the implant device into the jawbone, where it integrates with the bone through a process called osseointegration. Once integrated, the foundation before strong and stable for dental prostheses like crowns, dentures, bridges, etc. 

3. Dental Extractions

You may need a tooth extraction for any one of a number of reasons. Some teeth are extracted because they are severely decayed, and others may have advanced periodontal disease (“gum disease”), or else have broken in a fashion that cannot be repaired. Other teeth may need removal because they are poorly positioned in the mouth (such as impacted wisdom teeth), or else in preparation for orthodontic treatment (“braces”).

When a tooth is missing its neighboring teeth will tend to shift, sometimes significantly, which in turn can have a major impact on your dental health. Even the removal of a single tooth can lead to problems related to your chewing ability, problems with your jaw joint, and predisposing the teeth that have shifted to problems.

To avoid these complications we recommend that you replace the tooth that has been extracted.

4. Metal Free Dental Fillings

These restorations include tooth colored fillings which are directly bonded to the tooth and porcelain ceramics which are directly bonded to the tooth and porcelain ceramics which have high strength without the need for metal.

Unlike amalgam, mercury-free fillings or tooth-colored fillings bond to the tooth structure, strengthening the teeth. Tooth-colored fillings and ceramics offer patients metal-free dentistry, which allows light to flow through and reflect off the teeth, leaving a more natural smile.

5. Dental Bridges

Dental Bridges are useful as corrective measures after an accident or serious dental decay. These restorations (generally made of porcelain or a composite material) are used to replace missing teeth.

Dental Bridges can help restore your bite and create a pleasant smile. It also takes a great deal of time to prepare the area and affix the bridge once it comes back from the lab. Fixed bridges are placed on the neighboring teeth so they span the site of the missing tooth. 

The bridge is fitted with ceramic teeth to replicate the missing teeth, to restore function and aesthetics. Placing a dental implant is an alternative to fixed bridgework. Fixed and/ or removable bridges (full or partial) are recommended in complex dental situations to restore support and proper function. Fixed bridges require meticulous cleaning, usually with a threading floss.

The usage of any method depends on the condition of the patient and the type of treatment it requires. These methods are not limited, there are many others like root canal therapy.  

Further, if you want to provide an additional layer of protection to your teeth, you can use dental veneers which give an aesthetic simile appearance.
