What is restorative dentistry?
Restorative dentistry is what we call all of our efforts and treatments to fix or replace missing or damaged teeth. This area of our practice is dedicated to repairing your smile — and giving you something to smile about for years to come. From fixing chipped, cracked, or broken teeth to offering treatments for pain, infection, and other issues, restorative dentistry offers powerful solutions for your smile.
What kinds of restorative treatments are available at Current Dentistry?
We pride ourselves on the range of comprehensive treatments we make available to our patients, including:
- Dental implants are used to replace teeth that are missing from your smile. Replacing missing teeth is more than an aesthetic issue. Missing teeth might impact your mental health and self-confidence, along with weakening the remaining teeth in your mouth. If you have missing teeth that aren’t replaced, your existing teeth may be more at risk for further loss.
- Periodontal disease treatment is important to combat the common issue of gum disease. Though mild cases of gingivitis can be easily and simply treated with a thorough cleaning at your dental office, advanced periodontal disease requires scaling, root planing, monitoring, and possible additional treatment. If periodontal disease is ignored, it may result in tooth loss and further impacts on your overall health.
- Root canals may sound scary, but it’s scarier still to imagine that some people might remain in intense pain caused by an infection inside a tooth to avoid a treatment designed to resolve the infection and relieve the pain. Root canals are the best method available today to save your teeth from loss or extraction, and we’re dedicated to preserving and restoring your smile.
- Prosthodontics covers restorative treatments including crowns, veneers, bridges, dental implants, dentures, and TMJ recovery.
