Why is restorative dentistry important?
Dental disease destroys tooth structure. Restorative dentistry is the
process of restoring function and appearance to these affected teeth!
above picture (on the left) shows how dental disease can destroy the teeth.
The picture on the right shows how restorative dentistry can repair the damage.
How do we restore teeth?
The most well known way to restore damage to teeth is the basic filling.
Fillings are used to restore teeth when the damage to the tooth is minor.
When the damage is more significant and a lot of tooth structure needs to be replaced, dentists use restorations called inlays or onlays or crowns (sometimes called caps).
Sometimes teeth are missing - restoring these spaces is also possible with restorative dentistry.
Common ways to restore spaces are implants, fixed bridges, and partials.
