Restorative dentistry offers valuable tools and techniques to those who have structural damage or defects of their teeth or soft structures of their mouth. Dentists can use these techniques to restore or repair abnormalities that involve both the structure and function of the teeth, gums, tongue and other tissues within the mouth.
What Is Restorative Dentistry?
Restorative dentistry is used to correct abnormalities and defects found inside the mouth. Procedures include superficial procedures, like veneers, bonding, and the use of braces or retainers. Surgical procedures such as bone grafting and dental implants are also used. The ultimate goal is to restore proper form and function to the mouth, or as close to it as humanly possible. While these procedures offer many cosmetic benefits, they also help to re-align the jaws making it easier to chew and speak normally.
The Benefits of Restorative Dentistry
Restorative dentistry offers many benefits. Not only does it make it easier for you to chew and break down your food, the re-alignment of the teeth takes pressure off of the tempo-mandibular joint. By relieving this stress or pressure, the risk of TMJ disorder is minimized. When the mouth is returned to its original structure, the features of the face become more balanced and symmetrical. One of the main benefits of restorative dentistry is that it can correct imperfections and defects that make you self-conscious about your smile.
