TeamRestorative Dentistry

Restorative dentistry is popular these days, offering help and support with dental procedures designed to restore your teeth, oral, and overall health, while also alleviating pain and discomfort. 

Whether you are looking for veneers, implants, dental bridges, fillings, or dental crowns, restorative dentistry can ease discomfort and greatly improve your dental health.

What are the Benefits of Restorative Dentistry?

Restorative dentistry can benefit you and your smile in a range of ways. Those include:

Improve Your Smile Aesthetics

Dental restoration can replace or repair missing, broken, or infected teeth through techniques that include implants, crowns, and veneers. 

Improve your Overall Health and Dental Health

Keeping your teeth healthy minimizes the possibility of both gum and teeth related diseases and the overall health issues these problems can cause, from high blood pressure to diabetes. 

Restorative Dentistry Prevents Tooth Movement

Did you know that even one missing tooth disrupts other tooth positioning? If your remaining teeth move from their proper places, you could be at risk for jawbone and other bone loss, or further tooth loss, as well as the need for more involved dental procedures far beyond replacing just one tooth.

Acting quickly to tooth loss will keep your remaining teeth healthy and in position, and preserve your gum and jaw health.

Restorative Dentistry Protects Your Natural Teeth

If you’ve suffered a tooth fracture, crack or even chip, whether from physical damage or simply time and wear, getting a restorative dental procedure can prevent any future problems, pain, or discomfort. 

After all, pain from any dental issue can make chewing your food uncomfortable, and hot and cold temperatures painful. The tooth or teeth can start hurting even when not exposed to temperature extremes or chewing. And of course, worse damage can always occur to your teeth if problems are not promptly addressed. Whether additional issues such as tissue infections or gum disease occur, or the gum and bone around your injured tooth are affected, dental restoration will help you get to the “root” of a tooth problem, and protect you and your teeth from additional pain and challenges.

Restorative Dentistry Is a Long-lasting Solution

Restorative dentistry prevents future infections and dental issues, and serves as a durable, long-lasting, and safe solution to teeth-related issues. Restorative practices can also reinforce your jawbone and overall facial bone structure. 

Restorative Dentistry Can Provides a Better Dental Structure

Speaking of bone structure and jawbones in particular, if you’re missing teeth or have damaged teeth, your mouth structure overall is extremely likely to weaken and worsen. Lacking support or missing a tooth, gums and bone cannot stabilize. But from fillings to implants, crowns, or bridges used to restore your dental health, your oral health overall will be sustained and enhanced. 

In short, receiving timely restorative dentistry procedures provides the solution to prevent long-term dental issues, offering better dental structure, protecting and enhancing the look of  your natural teeth, preventing tooth movement, and improving both your dental and overall health, and appearance!
