What is Restorative Dentistry?

Dental Fillings

Dental fillings are used to repair teeth that have been damaged by decay or trauma. They’re typically made of composite resin or amalgam and are used to fill in the space left by decay or trauma. Fillings are a common restorative treatment that can help prevent further damage to the tooth and restore its natural function and appearance.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are used to support replacement teeth. They’re typically made of titanium, topped with a lifelike dental restoration like a crown, and are surgically placed into the jawbone. Dental implants can be used to replace a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth. They’re durable and long-lasting solutions that can improve the function and appearance of your smile.


Dentures are removable appliances that are used to replace missing teeth, either a full set of teeth or just a few. Dentures can be made of various materials, such as acrylic or porcelain, and can be custom-made to fit your mouth. They’re a cost-effective solution for restoring your smile and improving your ability to eat and speak.

Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy is a procedure that’s used to treat infected or damaged tooth pulp. It involves removing the infected or damaged pulp, cleaning the root canal, and filling it with a special material. Root canal therapy is often used to save a tooth that would otherwise need to be extracted. It can help alleviate pain and prevent further damage to the tooth, as well as stop the infection from spreading.

Frequently Asked Questions

What issues are addressed by restorative dentistry procedures?

Restorative dental operations can repair and maintain the health of your mouth, with the most common being the filling of any cavities. Filling cavities helps to prevent further deterioration or injury to that tooth or any surrounding teeth. Teeth that require crowns or caps to be reinforced are also considered restorative procedures.

How do I know if I need restorative dentistry?

You may need restorative dentistry if you have a chipped or cracked tooth, tooth decay, gum disease, missing teeth, or other oral health issues. If you’re experiencing pain or discomfort in your teeth or gums, it’s best to consult with a restorative dentist to determine the best course of treatment.

Are restorative dental procedures painful?

Restorative dental procedures are typically performed under local anesthesia, which numbs the area being treated and reduces pain during the procedure. After the procedure, you may experience some discomfort or sensitivity, but this can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain medication.

How long do restorative dental procedures take?

The length of time for a restorative dental procedure depends on the type of procedure being performed and the extent of the damage or decay. Some procedures, such as fillings or crowns, can be completed in a single visit, while others, such as dental implants or dentures, may require multiple appointments over several weeks or months.
