What Is Restorative Dentistry?
Restorative dentistry is the practice of creating a complete smile by bringing your mouth back to its original state of function, health, and appearance. A variety of factors can require restorative treatment. Tooth decay can make eating difficult, a bacterial imbalance can result in gum disease and damaged teeth, cavities may cause pain and sensitivity, and tooth infections may cause severe discomfort while threatening the health of your entire tooth. Our team offers a variety of treatments to address your restorative needs, including:
What Are the Benefits of Restorative Dentistry?
Restorative dentistry can improve your quality of life quite quickly. Decayed or injured teeth will often have a negative impact on your day-to-day experience. Cavities may cause tooth sensitivity and pain. Decayed, broken, or missing teeth hinder the uniform beauty of your smile, sometimes causing embarrassment and discomfort when eating and speaking. You may successfully manage pain associated with an infected tooth, but if an abscess occurs and the disease spreads, discomfort will increase and extraction may be necessary. If you’re not sure investing in restorative dentistry is right for you, consider the benefits:
- Instantly improved appearance and resulting confidence
- Improved chewing and nutritional intake
- Comfortable speaking
- Removal of infection
- Resolved pain
- Restored oral health
