What Is Restorative Dentistry?
Restorative dentistry focuses on treatments that restore the health and function of the teeth. This specialized dental care is provided to patients who require treatments that address broken, cracked, decayed, and severely damaged teeth. It is also ideal for individuals with missing teeth. Dr. B provides restorative dentistry treatments such as crowns, veneers, dental implants, and other procedures — all of which can help restore your oral health.
Missing Teeth Should Be Replaced
Missing teeth are not just an aesthetic concern, but also a dental issue that can jeopardize your overall oral health. Eating and speaking are more difficult when teeth are missing, and existing teeth are more prone to additional damage. Facial muscles don’t have the proper support when teeth are missing, which can cause them to weaken.
Types of Tooth Restoration
Implants provide a secure and permanent solution to one or more missing teeth. Dental implants are essentially artificial teeth attached to posts anchored into the jawbone to restore the natural function and appearance of the smile. Additionally, this treatment may result in an improvement in comfort and speech, which contributes to overall oral health.
Dentures are also known as false teeth and are a great option for patients that are missing most or all of their teeth. They are custom-made to fit the individual’s mouth and are used to help patients regain the ability to speak and chew, which is often lost when a large number of teeth are missing. Dentures can also be used to support facial muscles and tissues to preserve a natural facial appearance.
If you are missing teeth, a dental bridge may be right for you. As its name suggests, this dental prosthesis is designed to bridge the gap between two teeth. There are different types of bridges, such as traditional bridges, cantilever bridges, and Maryland-bonded bridges. Your dentist will discuss which bridge option is best for you during your consultation.
