Restorative dentistry is the diagnosis and management of teeth and their supporting structures, including bone and soft tissue, to restore function and aesthetics to our patients. To fix problems such as missing or damaged teeth and restore proper function, restorative dentists will utilize dental devices including crowns, bridges, dentures, overlays, and dental implants.
In addition to restoring a patient’s oral health, Advanced Family Dentistry can also create enhancements to a patient’s appearance with Cosmetic Dentistry.
The following specialties fall under restorative care:
- Endodontics – management of the dental pulp while preserving as much of the tooth as possible
- Periodontics – dentistry that treats diseases of teeth and gums, such as periodontitis
- Prosthodontics – the fitting of artificial replacements for teeth and other mouth parts
