Restorative Dentistry Fixes Problems
Restorative dentistry fixes problems so that you and your teeth and gums stay healthy. The most common restorative procedure is dental fillings.
Dr. Cameron Clark explains that filling cavities prevents further damage. This means taking care of problems in the early stages is vital if you want to prevent less conservative procedures such as a dental crown.
Missing teeth cause problems for other teeth and that’s why dental implants are considered restorative.
Although dental bridges and dentures replace missing teeth they do not exercise the jaw like implants do. Both of these procedures are considered restorative as well but are more conservative than dental implants.
