What is Restorative Dentistry

Restorative dentistry, also called prosthodontic dentistry, refers to the study, diagnosis and combined management of oral health issues and restoring a patient’s mouth to an esthetic, functional state. Many restorative dentistry procedures fall under the prosthodontic dentistry specialty field.

This specialty includes dental implants, partial and full dentures, bridges, crowns, veneers and fillings. The causes of dental issues leading to the need for restorative dentistry may be due to gum diseases or an unfortunate accident.

Technically speaking, it’s the prevention and treatment of oral and dental diseases in order to restore the teeth to their best condition. Restorative dentistry includes, but isn’t limited to, the replacement of repair of defective or damaged teeth. Some examples of these types of procedures are:

  • Treatment of nerves, known as pulpotomy
  • Placing stainless steel silver crowns
  • White or silver filling placement in teeth or tooth
  • Removing teeth, otherwise known as extractions
  • Placing space maintainers in the mouth

Replacing Missing Teeth

The goal of restorative dentistry is to preserve as much of your natural teeth as possible, while promoting good dental health. This may consist of replacing missing teeth with dentures, dental bridges and/or implants. Dentists recommend filling in all empty spaces located inside your mouth. This can help you prevent getting cavities in the healthy teeth in your mouth.

Abnormally-shaped gaps are very susceptible to the build-up of plaque-causing bacteria. Also, when you have missing teeth, you have a smaller surface area for chewing, which put more strain on the teeth you have remaining. Restorative dentistry can correct these issues and help you restore your smile.

Before making a decision about your restorative dentistry strategy, you need to consider your budget, as well as your physical and health factors.

At Bridge Creek Dental, we do our best to preserve as much of your natural teeth possible before restoring partial or full dentures. If for any reason, we find that you’re not a good candidate for these types of procedures, we’ll be happy to discuss other ways methods of restorative dentistry with you. We will work directly with you to come up with an effective dental plan to restore your smile.
