Restorative Dentistry Q & A
What is restorative dentistry?
Restorative dentistry is the branch of dentistry that deals with improving the health and function of your teeth and mouth after damage, decay, or natural tooth loss over time.
At Personal Touch Dentistry, Dr. Antonio provides a wide range of restorative services to give you the best possible outcome with your treatment. She evaluates your mouth and helps you select the appropriate treatment.
If you need extensive dental work, Dr. Antonio might recommend a full mouth reconstruction. This involves a personalized series of restorative dental treatments to fix most or all of the teeth and other structures in your mouth.
Dr. Antonio takes a biomimetic approach to dentistry, meaning that she reconstructs your teeth so that they emulate their natural biomechanical and esthetic form and function.
Using biomimetic dentistry, she removes only the damaged and decayed part of the tooth and bonds the final restoration to your remaining healthy natural tooth structure.
What are the benefits of restorative dentistry?
Restorative dentistry offers a wide range of benefits. Some of the benefits include:
- Better-looking smile
- Improved oral health
- Easier teeth cleaning and maintenance
- Less unwanted tooth movement
- Better oral health
Dr. Antonio at Personal Touch Dentistry creates results that are meant to last a lifetime. She also provides maintenance for any dental prosthetics.
What are some popular restorative dentistry treatments?
Dr. Antonio offers an extensive list of restorative dental services. After an examination, review of your medical history, and discussion of your goals and expectations, she might recommend:
Dental crowns are single-tooth prosthetics. They can cover a damaged tooth or can attach to a dental implant to fill a gap in your smile.
Dr. Antonio can use dental bridges to replace one or more of your missing teeth. They anchor to nearby teeth with sturdy crowns and include one or more prosthetic teeth to fill the gap.
Implants are titanium devices that look similar to screws. Dr. Antonio places them in your jawbone, where they act as an artificial tooth root. You can use them to anchor a crown or a set of dentures.
Dentures are artificial sets of teeth. You can get full dentures to replace a whole row of teeth or partial dentures to replace several, but not all, of your teeth. Most dentures are removable.
Dr. Antonio might suggest one of many kinds of oral surgery for your treatment. Oral surgery includes tooth extractions, bone grafts to increase bone density in your jaw or jaw surgery to correct your jaw growth or improve the fit of your dentures.
