When your dentist manages your oral health problems while also restoring the mouth to a functional and esthetic state, this is restorative dentistry. The services commonly included in restorative dentistry include, but are not limited to:
- Full and partial dentures
- Dental implants
With restorative dentistry, when you are replacing missing teeth, the goal is to preserve natural teeth as much as possible. By replacing missing teeth, your dentist helps to promote dental health while restoring your smile.
When deciding on a restorative dentistry treatment option, it is important to consider both physical and fiscal factors—your health and your budget. Most dentists will try to preserve your natural teeth if possible before resorting to full or partial dentures so that you don’t have to remove and clean the devices regularly. However, sometimes dentures are the only option for missing teeth.
