Restorative Dentistry Q&A
What is restorative dentistry?
Restorative dentistry is an area of dental practice focused on correcting problems brought on by decay or traumatic injury. Everyone needs some form of restorative care at some point in life.
While your teeth are incredibly durable and capable of significant daily use, they can become damaged when decay begins to weaken the layers of a tooth. Injuries arise from something as simple as bumping a tooth against the edge of a drinking glass or sustaining facial trauma while playing sports.
No matter how simple or advanced your needs are, the Smile HB Dental & Orthodontics team offers a solution.
What kinds of restorative dentistry treatments are available?
A wide range of restorative dental treatments offers the chance to repair and restore your smile. Some of the more common options to choose from include:
- Root canal
- Implant-supported dentures
- Dental implants
In some cases, an extraction process to remove a damaged tooth is the first step in the restoration process and makes room for treatments like dental implants or bridgework. Many treatments offer aesthetic benefits, in addition to restorative improvement. In those instances, your dental insurance may cover the procedure.
How do I choose the right restorative dentistry treatments for me?
In many cases, there is more than one restorative treatment to choose from. At your consultation, you can count on receiving all the details needed to make an informed decision about your care. You’re also encouraged to ask questions and express concerns as they arise.
At Smile HB Dental & Orthodontics, patient education plays a role in all interactions. The team believes that an informed patient is the first step in any successful dental procedure. There is never any pressure to choose one approach over another, and no rush.
Advanced diagnostic tools like digital X-rays and the iTero® intraoral scanner help your dentist shape your customized treatment plan. The team also values your input during the planning process.
