Restorative Dentistry Q & A

What is restorative dentistry?

Restorative dentistry is a branch of oral health care used to replace damaged, decaying, or missing teeth. It uses oral prosthetics, surgical techniques, and other advanced treatment options to prevent gum recession, bone deterioration, and other more serious oral health problems.

As a professor at the University of Texas School of Dentistry, Dr. Sajadi regularly takes on difficult, challenging cases. He has years of experience helping people with failed implants. 

If an unqualified dentist places dental implants, Dr. Sajadi can correct their work, helping you look and feel your best. 

Dr. Sajadi conducts all types of restorative dentistry on-site and takes on high-stakes, demanding cases. If you want a healthier, more aesthetically pleasing smile, don't wait to seek treatment at Edgewater Dental.

What are some prosthetics used in restorative dentistry?

At Edgewater Dental, Dr. Sajadi performs restorative dentistry using various oral prosthetics, including:

  • Crowns
  • Bridges
  • Dental implants
  • Dentures
  • Fillings
  • Bonding
  • Inlays and onlays

If you lose bone volume or experience gum recession due to periodontal disease, Dr. Sajadi might also recommend oral surgery, such as bone grafting or soft tissue grafts.

Are there different types of restorative dentistry?

At Edgewater Dental, Dr. Sajadi offers several types of restorative dentistry, including:

Direct restorations

If you have a cavity, Dr. Sajadi might recommend a direct restoration like a filling. Direct restorations require no outside manufacturing. Dr. Sajadi simply removes the decaying portion of your tooth and fills it with composite resin. The resin prevents further damage, allowing you to bite and chew confidently.

Indirect restorations

If you crack or lose a tooth, Dr. Sajadi might recommend an indirect restoration. Indirect restorations use oral prosthetics like crowns, bridges, or dental implants. They require more than one office visit because a dental laboratory creates a custom prosthetic. 

Am I a good candidate for restorative dentistry?

Only a qualified dentist like Dr. Sajadi can determine if you’re a good candidate for restorative dentistry. 

Following a comprehensive oral exam, a review of your oral health history, and a discussion of your lifestyle and goals for treatment, Dr. Sajadi can develop a treatment plan that aligns with your needs.

You’ll likely qualify if you have damaged, decaying, or missing teeth and want to take steps to improve the health and appearance of your smile.
