The field of restorative dentistry covers a wide range of dental services that are all aimed at helping patients restore their oral health and boost their confidence in their smiles. Restorative dental care can help patients who have experienced tooth decay, gum disease, or oral trauma. From simple procedures like dental fillings to more complex treatments like replacing missing teeth with dental prosthetics, restorative treatment can help get your smile back.
Dental issues can become more severe and costly the longer you wait to treat them.
Over 3 million Americans have replaced missing teeth with dental implants.
As the name suggests, restorative dentistry aims to restore the form and function of infected, damaged, or missing teeth, while helping to prevent more damage later on. Restorative dentistry can also repair damage caused by any sort of dental trauma caused by an injury or accident.
Restorative dental treatments like root canals, crowns, and implants have many benefits. Although these may seem intimidating to some, advancements in dental techniques and technology have made restorative dentistry more comfortable than ever. Don’t put off getting restorative dental treatment, as getting the care you need quickly can help you to avoid future oral health problems that come with dental pain and more invasive, costly procedures. Not only will you save yourself time and money, but you’ll also be able to smile with confidence, knowing that your bite is in good health.
Any instance of oral trauma, or an injury that requires immediate attention and can’t be treated at home, is a dental emergency. Dental emergencies include conditions like persistent toothaches or another type of continuous oral pain or discomfort, chipped or broken teeth, missing or lost dental work, and bleeding gums. It’s always better to be safe than sorry, so even if you’re not certain that what you’re experiencing qualifies as a dental emergency, get in touch with us anyway to find out if you require emergency care.
The extent of your coverage can vary depending on your particular policy, but many insurance plans do cover at least a portion of the cost of restorative procedures that are deemed necessary. For example, your insurance might cover the cost of a simple filling, or root canal therapy, but they may not provide the same coverage for dental implants. For a complete understanding of your own coverage, we recommend reaching out to your provider for details. Alternatively, our knowledgeable and friendly team is standing by to answer any questions you may have and find out how to maximize your benefits at our office.
Around 25% of American adults are missing all of their teeth. We can help you keep or replace yours.
During your comprehensive oral health examination, also called a “full mouth exam,” your dentist will examine your teeth and gums, while screening you for oral cancer, periodontal disease, tooth decay, and anything else that can have an impact on your oral health.
After your exam, you’ll discuss your oral health goals with your dentist, to develop a personalized treatment plan that is customized to fit your unique dental needs. Treatment plans are a detailed outline of recommended care, and typically include a timeline for each treatment, as well as information about any service you will receive.
Everyone’s smile is as unique as they are, and as a result, no two treatment plans will be exactly the same. We’ll be with you every step of the way, making sure to educate you on all of your available treatment options, and answering any questions you may have, so you can choose the treatment that fits your needs, budget, and lifestyle.
In order to keep you feeling safe and comfortable, we’re proud to offer sedation options. Sedation is not only helpful for complex restorative cases, but also to ease dental anxiety and provide comfort to patients who have trouble sitting still. We’ll discuss whether or not you will need or want sedation while we create your treatment plan.
If you’re visiting our office for a dental emergency, we’ll do everything we can to ensure you get the treatment you need as soon as possible. Depending on the severity of your emergency, and our availability, we may be able to offer same-day appointments. For non-emergencies, we’ll just schedule your next appointment after your cleaning and exam. We’ll work with you to make sure your next visit fits in with your schedule.
