All You Need To Know About Restorative Dentistry

Restorative dentistry aims to replace or repair broken or missing teeth. These treatments enhance the function and health of the mouth. Crowns, bridges, and implants are examples of common dental restorations.

What Is Restorative Dentistry?

Any dental operation that restores or replaces a tooth is called restorative dentistry. Cavity fillings, root canals, and even dental implants are examples of restorative treatments. Restorative dentistry can have two objectives: restoring the teeth’s function and restoring their look. Sometimes it’s either one or the other, and other times it’s both.

When Do You Need Restorative Dentistry?

Restorative dentistry aims to treat teeth and restore them to a healthy state.  The following conditions will necessitate restorative dentistry.

What Are The Different Types Of Dental Restorative Treatments?

Cavity Filling

By far, the most common restorative dental procedure is this one. Cavities are holes made by germs penetrating your tooth’s enamel, the hard outer layer, and must be filled to safeguard the delicate pulp inside.


Dentures are a replacement choice if you don’t have enough healthy teeth in your mouth to function normally. Dentures typically include an entire arch of teeth.

Root Canal

A root canal procedure may be necessary when a cavity penetrates a tooth deeply enough to expose the fragile pulp inside. Following a tooth injury, a root canal may occasionally be required. Usually, a tooth needs a root canal because the pulp within is infected.

Dental Bridges

An artificial tooth positioned between two crowns is called a dental bridge. A bridge may occasionally be made up of a row of several teeth.

Dental Crowns

A crown can strengthen a tooth that has been broken or cracked due to severe decay or other damage.

Dental Implants

A dental implant can replace a missing tooth or a tooth that needs to be pulled because of severe decay or destruction. An entire prosthetic tooth and the root system are dental implants.

One of the most commonly offered services is restorative dentistry. Most people will require some restorative procedure at some point in their lives. We try to preserve your teeth and only replace them when needed.
