What Are Restorative Dental Procedures?
Restorative dental procedures encompass a range of treatments designed to repair and restore the health, function, and appearance of damaged or missing teeth. These restorative dental treatments are crucial in addressing dental issues caused by tooth decay, trauma, wear and tear, or other factors affecting natural teeth’ structure and integrity.
Restorative dental procedures may include dental fillings to repair cavities, dental crowns to strengthen and protect weakened teeth, dental bridges to replace missing teeth, and dental implants for a permanent and natural-looking tooth replacement option.
Restorative dentistry often involves treatments such as root canal therapy to address infections and preserve the natural tooth or a dental bridge and partial dentures to replace multiple missing teeth. Restorative dental procedures aim to enhance oral health, restore proper chewing and speaking functions, and provide Littlehmaton Dental patients with a confident and beautiful smile.
When Do I Need A Restorative Dentist?
You may need a restorative dentist when you experience dental pain surrounding tooth decay, tooth sensitivity, a broken tooth or a chipped tooth, missing teeth, or problems with the structure and functionality of your teeth. A restorative dentist specialises in diagnosing and treating these conditions, restoring your dental health, improving the appearance of your smile, and enhancing your overall oral function and well-being. If you’re facing any of these concerns, you should schedule an appointment with one of our restorative dentists to assess your specific needs and determine the appropriate treatment options.
Littlehampton Dental Restoration Services
Regarding restorative dentistry, various types of dental restorations are available to address different dental issues. Each dental restoration procedure serves a unique purpose, often advised by a dentist to meet individual needs. Whether you simply need a dental filling or a more complex tooth replacement, Littlehampton Dental restorations offers a range of solutions to help you regain your smile.
Dental crowns, also known as caps, are tooth-shaped dental restorations that cover the entire visible portion of a damaged tooth. They are used to restore strength, shape, and appearance to teeth that are severely decayed, cracked, or weakened. A dental crown is typically made of materials like porcelain, metal, or a combination of both.
In restorative dentistry, dental bridges replace one or more missing teeth by bridging the gap between two adjacent teeth. They consist of artificial teeth called pontics that are anchored to the natural teeth on either side of the gap. Dental bridges can restore proper biting and chewing functions, improve speech, and enhance the smile’s aesthetics.
Dental implants involve the surgical placement of a titanium post into the jawbone, which acts as an artificial tooth root. A crown is attached to the implant, creating a natural-looking replacement tooth. Dental implants can replace single teeth or support implant-supported bridges and dentures.
Dentures are removable prosthetic devices used to replace multiple missing teeth. They consist of artificial teeth set in a gum-coloured acrylic base. Dentures can be complete (replacing all teeth in the arch) or partial (replacing some missing teeth while preserving remaining natural teeth).
What Are Advanced Restorative Dentistry Procedures?
Root Canal Treatment
Root canal treatment is a restorative dental procedure to save a severely decayed or infected tooth from extraction. By removing the infected pulp, cleaning the root canal, and sealing it, root canal therapy restores the tooth’s health and functionality. It prevents the need for tooth extraction, preserving the natural tooth.
Tooth extractions are dental procedures in which a tooth is carefully removed from its socket in the jawbone. This may be necessary due to severe decay, trauma, overcrowding, or in preparation for orthodontic treatment, and it can help alleviate pain, prevent infection, and preserve overall oral health.
