How to Know I Need Restorative Dentistry

July 31, 2022 12:11 am

If you’ve been living with missing or damaged teeth, you know just how much it can affect your quality of life. From self-consciousness when talking to difficulty chewing, these issues can take a major emotional and physical toll. You may benefit from restorative dentistry, such as a filling, crown, implant, bridge, or dentures.

What Is Restorative Dentistry?

Restorative dentistry is an umbrella term for the different ways our team at Jonesboro Family Dental replaces missing teeth or restores damaged teeth. You may need restorative dentistry if you’ve lost or otherwise damaged your teeth due to gum disease, decay, blunt trauma, or other issues. So if you’ve been hiding your smile because you’re embarrassed about your compromised smile, schedule a consultation with us to learn more about your restorative dentistry options.

What Treatments Are Restorative?

During your consultation, our team will recommend the right dental restoration for you. Our recommendation will be based on your current condition, your oral health history, and your budget. For example, if you have a small cavity our team might recommend a dental filling, one of our most common restorative dentistry treatments. We use composite tooth-colored fillings that blend in with your natural tooth while protecting it. For teeth weakened by tooth decay, we may use a dental crown to both protect your natural tooth and restore its function.

How Can I Replace Missing Teeth?

Whether you’re missing one tooth or several teeth, our team can help restore your smile. For example, we offer both dentures (full and partial) and dental implants to help you regain both the appearance and function of your pearly whites.
