Restorative dentistry is the study, diagnosis, and combined management of diseases of the teeth and their supporting structures, and the rehabilitation of the natural teeth to their functional and aesthetic requirements.
Restorative dentistry includes the dental specialties of endodontics, periodontics, and prosthodontics with a foundation based on how these interact in cases requiring multifaceted care.
Also, restorative needs not only derive from diseases of the teeth like cavities and medical conditions but also from trauma.
Traumatic injuries to the front teeth are frequently encountered by children and adults. The degree of the trauma will determine what restorative treatment is called for.
The outcome of dental cavities is determined by the balance between pathological factors that lead to demineralisation and protective factors that lead to remineralisation.
The decay can be reversed if detected early. If not caught quick enough, then the decay will spread and become a cavity that will spread inside and outside the tooth until a restorative procedure is required to repair the tooth.
Restorative Treatments by your Doncaster East dentist
When you lose a tooth, the first things you worry about areß the discomfort and embarrassment it brings.
Dental implants are screw-like fixtures that are surgically placed in your jawbone to replace a lost tooth and root and fill the gap left behind.
They are usually made of titanium, a biocompatible material. Dental implants serve as an anchorage for replacement crown and bridges, making them sturdy.
Full Mouth Rehabilitation
The gradual wear of the surfaces of your teeth is a normal process a person goes through their life.
However, tooth wear can not only result in losing a tooth but also in facial deterioration. When your teeth keep wearing away, your facial structures begin to sag.
Full mouth rehabilitation helps reconstruct and restore worn out dentition, and maintain the natural functionality of the teeth and their supporting structures.
It also helps you restore a smile you’ve lost to trauma, wear, or decay.
If you are planning to get dental implants, but your Doncaster East dentist discovers that you don’t have enough bone on the implant site, he/she might recommend you undergo a bone grafting procedure first.
During the process, your dental surgeon will take a section of bone from another part of your body, or use a special bone grafting material, and graft it on your jawbone.
Dentures are removable restorative appliances used to replace missing tooth/teeth and their surrounding tissues. There are two types of dentures: the partial and complete dentures.
When all teeth are missing, complete dentures are used. Partial dentures are used when there are remaining natural teeth left.
Inlay and Onlays
Inlays and onlays are dental restorations manufactured outside the mouth and then cemented into place after a cleaning procedure.
They are used as alternatives to direct restorations made of amalgam, which are constructed in the mouth.
Crowns And Bridges
Crowns and bridges are appliances that are fixed on existing teeth or implants. This restorative procedure uses prosthetics to return your smile to its natural condition.
Crowns replace missing material when there isn’t enough tooth remaining. They also protect a sensitive tooth from fracturing and restore a fractured tooth.
Crowns cover a dental implant, a discoloured or poorly shaped tooth, or a tooth that has had root canal treatment.
Bridges fill the gap between teeth. They are usually made of porcelain fused to metal to achieve maximal durability and natural look.
Bridges are cemented between two crowns or implants, making them look like natural teeth and help maintain the shape of your face.
