What Does Restorative Dentistry Include?
December 21st, 2018
We, at Avalon Dental Care, are proud to offer quality restorative dentistry procedures designed to replace or repair missing or damaged teeth. The goal is to restore their intended form and function, enhancing the quality of your life, and leaving you with a natural-looking smile.
Restorative Dentistry Overview
Our restorative dentistry procedures not only repair compromised teeth or replace those that are missing, but also aim to restore your healthy bite, which prevents a host of dental problems from developing. Replacing any missing teeth makes it easier for you to chew, speak, and enjoy smiling with confidence.
Following are some common restorative dentistry options:
Dental fillings: To repair a cavity, we remove the decay, clean the area, and seal it with a dental filling. We usually use composite resin or porcelain fillings matched to the color of your natural teeth.
Dental Crowns: These tooth-shaped restorations are caps we place over damaged teeth to strengthen and protect them. They are commonly used to repair teeth that have undergone root canal therapy. Your restorations will look and feel just like the surrounding natural teeth.
Bridges: Dental bridges literally “bridge” the gap where there are missing teeth. We place crowns on each end to serve as anchors for artificial teeth that fill the space. Dental bridges help keep teeth from moving out of place, along with making it easier to chew, speak, and smile!
Partials and Dentures: Dentures and partials are devices we use to replace all or some missing teeth, allowing you to regain your ability to chew and speak properly, and restoring your youthful appearance.
Dental Implants: Dental implants are the second best thing to your natural teeth. They restore the full form and function of missing teeth, leaving you with incredibly natural-looking and feeling restorations.
Caring for Your Restorations
Proper oral hygiene practices will help extend the life of your restorations. Brush your teeth at least twice a day, and floss and use antibacterial mouthwash daily. Try to avoid chewing on hard or sticky foods which can damage your restorations.
