Even with a diligent at-home oral hygiene routine, dental problems can arise. Restorative dentistry is a specialized form of dental care that focuses on the repair and restoration of damaged and missing teeth. The damage to the teeth arises from decay, injury, or infection. The goal of the treatment is to restore structure, function and enhance the aesthetics of your smile. Talk to our dentist at Isla Dental to have your dental concerns like cavities, gum disease, broken teeth, chipped teeth, and discolorations taken care of. Our restorative dental procedures can help rejuvenate your oral health and restore your beautiful smile.
Our Restorative Dentistry Procedures
We offer an assortment of restorative dental treatments. These treatments include:
It is common for teeth to decay over time, especially in cases where one is unable to maintain oral hygiene. In such cases, the decayed part of the tooth is removed and the tooth's interior is cleaned in preparation for a dental filling. Composite resin, porcelain, and amalgam are common materials for filling teeth to protect them from further decay and restore their original structure and function. This will alleviate the pain associated with the damage and make it easier to maintain oral health.
Our dentist may mount crowns on weakened or damaged teeth to strengthen and protect them. Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps. They are custom-fabricated to resemble the shape and color of the teeth. Crowns may also work to finish dental implant procedures.
After loss of teeth to decay, trauma, or gum infection, dental implants are an ideal choice. They provide durable, stable teeth for proper function and health. We can replace one or many teeth in the mouth. Today, implants are the chosen option for tooth replacement since they offer the most lifelike solution to the problem of tooth loss. Our dentist mounts screw-like posts into the bone, which will provide a foundation for crowns, bridges, or dentures. Dental implants help maintain the integrity of your facial structure.
Dental Bridges and Dentures
Other solutions for the replacement of teeth are a dental bridge and a denture. A dental bridge is done by anchoring artificial teeth close to dental implants or healthy teeth. They work effectively when it comes to the restoration of bite function and facial structure. Dentures, on the other hand, are removable dental prosthetic appliances that could be used to replace multiple or entire arches of teeth.
Benefits of Restorative Dentistry
We can resolve the damage brought about by decay, enamel wear, gum disease, and cavities with restorative procedures and prevent reoccurrence in the future. Some dental problems such as cracks and misalignment are known to reduce the functionality of teeth. A person may find it a challenge to chew and speak. Restorative dentistry addresses these problems, enabling one to communicate with confidence and enjoy a wide array of foods. Again, restorative dentistry can provide viable treatment options that will enable you to regain a beautiful, symmetrical smile.
