Restorative Dentistry is that field of dentistry that, as the name implies, focuses on restoring a person’s smile by replacing decayed, damaged, or completely lost teeth. At Edgewater Dental, we take pride in having specialists like Dr. Ali Sajadi, DDS, MSD, who has the expertise needed to replace severely damaged or missing teeth with the appropriate prosthetics and restore a person’s smile, even under the most difficult circumstances.
What Restorative Dentistry Does For You
While restorative dentistry primarily restores or replaces damaged or missing teeth, it does more than just that. It prevents other dental problems like bone deterioration, misalignment of the remaining teeth, and gum recession from occurring. These problems stem from having damaged or missing teeth that are left unreplaced. So, in replacing these missing teeth, these problems are averted.
What Are the Treatments Under Restorative Dentistry?
At Edgewater Dental, we have various dental treatments we can perform and prosthetics we can use to restore a person’s smile. Some of these are:
When a tooth just has cavities because of tooth decay or another cause, fillings are good for restoring the internal structure and strength of the tooth.
Dental bonding is used when the damage to the tooth extends to its outer surface, unlike fillings that are used for internal damage. Composite resin is used to restore the shape of the tooth and is colored to match that tooth.
Unlike fillings and bondings that are applied and shaped on the tooth itself, inlays and onlays are custom-made from previously made impressions before they are cemented on the treated teeth.
If the damage is too extensive, a dental crown is placed. The crown replaces most of the outer structure of the tooth and protects against further damage to what remains of the tooth.
A bridge is often composed of an artificial replacement tooth secured to crowns on both sides placed on the two healthy teeth adjacent to the gap.
Dentures are detachable prosthetics that replace most or all of the person’s teeth.
These are replacement teeth composed of a titanium root fused to the jawbone and an artificial tooth.
