WHAT IS RESTORATIVE DENTISTRY?
Restorative dentistry is a collection of dental treatments and dental prosthetics designed to fix damaged teeth and gums. Unlike a smile makeover, many of these treatments go beyond aesthetics to address issues like gum disease, severe tooth decay, and age-related enamel issues for a complete restoration of form and function.
You may be a great candidate for restorative dentistry if you are dealing with more than one of the following issues:
- Lost Teeth
- Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
- Enamel erosion
- Yellowed, discolored teeth
- Crooked or irregularly shaped teeth
- Inflamed, infected gums
- Infected tooth pulp
- Advanced tooth decay
- Recessed gums
Many of these problems are cosmetically undesirable, but more worrisome, they can affect the function and health of your teeth and gums, and even result in additional problems including systemic health issues like hypertension, heart attack, and kidney failure.
Cosmetics and function are not mutually exclusive in dentistry. Dr. Naderi understands the relationship between aesthetics and utility, and they approach your care comprehensively to improve all aspects of your smile and oral health.
What are some restorative dentistry options?
An experienced cosmetic dentist can determine the right combination of treatments to rehabilitate your smile and restore optimal dental health. Possible treatments may include:
- Dental implants to replace the roots of missing teeth
- Dental crowns to protect teeth weakened by advanced decay or infection, or damaged through trauma
- Gum disease treatment to restore health to the support structures of the teeth and help prevent issues like tooth loss, jaw necrosis, and systemic health problems
- Dental Bridges are an alternative to dental implants that allow a permanent replacement of your missing tooth or teeth
- Dentures are an option for those who have missing teeth or are needing to have their dentures replaced.
Dentures and dental bridges may also be used during rehabilitative dentistry to replace several missing teeth at once. Both dentures and bridges can be secured to dental implants for improved function and lasting results. Dental crowns can also be used to restore implants when appropriate.
What are dental implants?
Dental Implants are titanium rods that are placed inside the jawbone to help restore your missing teeth. After their placement, a few months goes by and a bond between your jawbone and the titanium forms. At this time, a dental crown begins to be constructed and placed on top of the titanium metal rods. Dental implants have helped countless patients restore their oral health and functional abilities to chew and smile again. Besides functionality, confidence is restored to these patients allowing them to live better personal and professional lives.
