What Is Restorative Dentistry?
Restorative dentistry plays a vital role in helping people maintain their oral health, improve their quality of life, and feel more confident in their smiles.
Restorative dentistry focuses on restoring damaged, decayed, or missing teeth to their natural form and function. It involves a variety of procedures that aim to repair or replace teeth, improve oral health, and enhance the appearance of the smile.
Benefits of Restorative Dentistry
- Better functionality: Restorative dentistry helps restore the function of your teeth, allowing you to eat and speak properly. This can also help prevent other health issues such as malnutrition or digestive problems.
- Improved oral health: Restorative dentistry helps restore the function of your teeth and gums, allowing you to eat and speak more comfortably. Additionally, repairing or replacing damaged teeth can prevent further decay or damage, which can improve your overall oral health.
- Enhanced appearance: Restorative dentistry procedures improve the appearance of your teeth, making them look more natural, healthier, and more attractive. This can boost your confidence and self-esteem.
- Long-term results: Many restorative dental procedures are designed to provide long-term results. With proper care and maintenance, restorations such as dental implants, bridges, and crowns can last for many years.
- Pain relief: Dental issues such as cavities or tooth decay can cause pain and discomfort. Restorative dentistry can alleviate this pain by repairing or removing damaged teeth.
At Florida Dental Implant Center, we offer crowns, dentures and partials as part of our restorative dentistry services.
Dentures are removable prosthetic devices that replace missing teeth and surrounding tissue. They are typically made of acrylic resin and can be customized to fit the shape and size of your mouth.
Partial dentures are similar to dentures but are used when you have some natural teeth remaining. They attach to the remaining teeth with metal or acrylic clasps, and can help prevent further shifting or movement of your remaining teeth.
Dentures and partials offer several benefits, including:
- Improved speech
- Enhanced appearance
- Improved comfort
- Improved eating ability
We will work with you to determine the best type of denture or partial for your specific needs, and will provide you with guidance on how to care for and maintain your prosthetic device. With proper care and maintenance, dentures and partials can last for many years, providing you with a comfortable and functional solution for missing teeth.
A crown is a dental restoration that completely covers the outside of a tooth that is cracked, broken, worn down, or severely decayed. Dental crowns are usually completed in two visits. During the first visit, the tooth is prepared (shaved down) and an impression is taken. A temporary crown is placed while the permanent crown is fabricated. During the second visit, the permanent crown is carefully fitted and then cemented into place.
A bridge can replace missing teeth without the use of a denture or dental implant. A bridge is composed of two crowns and a replacement tooth or teeth. Crowns are typically placed on the teeth on either side of the space, with the fabricated tooth or teeth attached in between.
For multiple missing teeth, an implant may be used to anchor the bridge.
Dental Implant Restorations
Dental implants replace missing teeth and protect existing teeth by helping to preserve bone structure. Dental implants are composed of three pieces: a small screw made of a biocompatible metal called titanium, an abutment that connects the screw, and the final restoration.
A denture is a replacement for multiple missing teeth within the same (upper or lower) arch. A denture differs from a crown or bridge in that it does not rely on an existing tooth structure, and it completely replaces the missing teeth.
There are several different types of dentures:
- Full or Partial
- Removable or Fixed
- Traditional or Implant-Supported
