If you're missing teeth due to trauma, decay, or another reason, then a dental restoration may help you to regain your smile and your self-confidence. Restoration dentistry covers several types of dental appliances including bridges, crowns, dentures, fillings, and implants.
Whether you need a cavity filled or you need a damaged or missing tooth repaired or replaced, then dental restoration can help you. The most common types of restoration dentistry are:
Your teeth are an integral part of your good overall health, so it's important to maintain good oral health in both your teeth and your gums. When teeth or gums are neglected, an infection can set in and travel throughout your body to your major organs. Several diseases such as cardiovascular disease and pulmonary issues have been linked to poor oral health, so it's imperative that you keep your teeth and gums in good repair. Trauma or decay can cause cracks or fractures in teeth and leave sharp edges as well as areas where decay can begin to form. Heredity is another factor that can precipitate the need for restorative dentistry. If your teeth are inherently weak, then restoration dentistry can help you maintain healthy teeth and gums through the use of fillings, bridges, and crowns. Sometimes, even though you have good oral hygiene habits, prescription medications can cause your teeth to deteriorate, so you need dental restoration. Chemotherapy drugs are particularly damaging to the teeth, so if you've needed any type of cancer treatment, then your teeth may have been adversely affected.
Depending on the type of restoration dentistry that you need, we may need to provide you with a temporary dental appliance that will enable you to use the tooth until your permanent prosthetic device is ready.
