What are Restorative Dental Treatments?
Dental restorative treatments are procedures designed to restore the function and appearance of teeth that have been damaged or lost. At Smile Center of Orlando, we offer a comprehensive approach to dental restoration:
As one of the most common dental procedures, fillings are used to repair small cavities or cracks in the teeth. The most common type of filling is made from a material called composite resin, which is a mixture of plastic and glass particles. Composite fillings match the color of your natural teeth, making them virtually indistinguishable from the rest of your teeth.
If you have a tooth that is severely damaged or cracked, a dental crown may be recommended. A crown is a “cap” that covers the entire visible portion of your tooth. Crowns can be made from several different materials, including porcelain, ceramic, metal, or a combination of these materials.
Tooth extraction is a procedure that is used to remove a damaged or decayed tooth from the mouth. In some cases, a tooth may need to be extracted if it prevents other teeth from coming in correctly (i.e., wisdom teeth). Tooth extractions are typically done under local anesthesia, sedation, or general anesthesia, depending on the patient’s needs and preferences.
A root canal is a procedure used to save a tooth damaged or infected by bacteria. During a root canal, the infected or damaged nerve tissue is removed from the tooth, and the tooth interior is cleaned and sealed.
Dentures are false teeth used to replace one or more missing teeth. They are custom-made to fit snugly over the gums and can be either removable or fixed (i.e., bonded to the gums). Dentures are typically made of acrylic resin or porcelain and can be made to look just like natural teeth.
Dental implants are an option for replacing missing teeth. Implants involve surgically placing titanium screws into the jawbone where missing teeth once were. Once the implant is healed and bonded with the bone, an artificial tooth is attached. Dental implants offer a natural-looking result and can last a lifetime with proper care.
Benefits of Restorative Treatments
Restorative treatments have many benefits for patients with damaged or missing teeth. They can help improve the function of the teeth so that the patients can chew and speak properly. They can also help improve the appearance of the teeth, giving patients a boost of confidence. In some cases, restorative treatments can also help to prevent further damage to the teeth or shrinkage of the jawbone muscles.
