What is Restorative Dentistry?
While preventative dentistry aims to stop damage happening to teeth, restorative dentistry is necessary whenever a tooth or teeth receive damage from either injury or decay. Restorative dentistry is essential to the maintenance of healthy teeth. It can range from simple fillings to complex procedures involving replacing missing teeth. Whatever the problem, a specialist in restorative dentistry like Dr. William Brunton at Conyers Dental Associates can help.
What Are the Main Types of Restorative Dentistry?
Restorative dentistry is an essential dental service in today’s medical world. It keeps teeth in working order, but it can also be part of a cosmetic dentistry smile makeover. These are the most common types of procedure:
Fillings are the dental restorations with which most patients are familiar. Dr. Brunton removes the decay from a cavity and then fills the cavity. Filling material may be gold, silver amalgam, or plastic composites that exactly match the color of the patient’s teeth.
Dental crowns can beautifully restore a tooth weakened by decay or damaged by accident. Most teeth in this situation need a root canal first. Crowns can also be part of a cosmetic dentistry procedure, replacing unsightly teeth and leading to a beautiful smile. Dr. Brunton files down the patient’s natural tooth and places a porcelain crown over it. The procedure takes a couple of visits. Dental crowns look just like natural teeth and are nearly as strong. Crowns can also cover dental implants or serve as anchors for bridges.
If a tooth needs removal because of decay or injury, a dental implant can replace it. In this procedure, Dr. Brunton inserts small metal posts that fuse with the natural tooth’s bone socket or the jawbone. When the implanted post is secure and healed, Dr. Brunton will cover it with a crown. Completing a dental implant procedure can take up to nine months. In the meantime, Dr. Brunton replaces the missing tooth with a prosthetic.
Bridges are false teeth that bridge the gap left by missing teeth. The bridge is permanently attached to crowns at either side, and cleaning it becomes part of the regular oral health routine.
Dentures, which are removable restorations for missing teeth, can be full—covering the entire mouth, or partial—replacing teeth in just a section of the mouth. Dr. Brunton will affix partial dentures to the remaining teeth. Partial and full dentures are removable for cleaning.
