What is considered restorative dentistry?

Restorative dentistry procedures are designed to repair the health and function of your smile. Restorative services will also often restore the appearance of the affected tooth, including missing teeth. Edgewood Family Dentistry offers the following restorative dentistry services.

  • Bridges — Bridges are dental restorations that replace one or more missing teeth by anchoring artificial teeth to adjacent natural teeth or implants. They help restore the ability to chew and speak properly and prevent nearby teeth from shifting out of position.
  • Crowns — Crowns are caps that are placed over damaged or decayed teeth to restore their shape, size, strength, and appearance. They protect weak teeth from breaking and support teeth with large fillings or after root canal treatment.
  • Full & Partial Dentures — Full dentures replace all the teeth in the upper or lower jaw, while partial dentures replace only a few missing teeth and attach to the remaining natural teeth. Both types of dentures help improve chewing ability and speech and restore the natural appearance of the patient’s smile.
  • Extractions — Extractions involve removing a tooth from its socket in the bone due to severe decay, damage, or overcrowding. This procedure is sometimes necessary to prevent infection or prepare the mouth for orthodontic treatment or dentures.
  • Composite Fillings — Composite fillings are used to repair cavities or damaged teeth using a tooth-colored resin material that blends with the natural teeth. They provide a durable and aesthetically pleasing solution for restoring tooth function and appearance.

Why is it important to repair damaged teeth?

Damaged teeth can interfere with your ability to eat and speak. They’re also vulnerable to infection, cavities, and further damage if left untreated. By repairing a damaged tooth as soon as possible, you can avoid further damage and discomfort in the future.

It’s not always obvious to patients when a tooth or several teeth have become damaged. If you suspect you need a restorative treatment or you are experiencing symptoms like dental pain, changes in tooth or gum color, chronic bad breath, or fever, please get in touch with our office as soon as you can.

When should you consider restorative dentistry?

If you have a broken or compromised tooth, ask our team about our restorative dentistry options. You should also consider restorative options if you’re missing one or more teeth. When left untreated, missing teeth can interfere with your ability to eat and speak. You may also begin to experience bone loss in the affected area, which could compromise the strength and stability of surrounding teeth.
