What Is Restorative Dentistry?

The primary focus of restorative dentistry is to promote dental wellness. Restorative dentistry targets health conditions affecting the oral cavity, the teeth, the gums, and the jaw, with the goal of eliminating disease and preventing future problems. It overlaps with cosmetic dentistry in many ways because most restorative procedures also enhance the appearance of your smile. However, the primary focus of restorative dentistry is to improve dental health and restore function rather than enhance aesthetics.

Who Is Restorative Dentistry For?

According to the World Health Organization, oral diseases affect around 3.5 billion people, and untreated tooth decay is the most common health problem in the world. That means most people will require at least one restorative dental treatment in their lifetime.

If you experience any form of dental disease or fall victim to a dental emergency, restorative dentistry will fix your problem. The most common type of dental disease is tooth decay, affecting children and adults of all ages. A tooth-colored filling is the simplest and most effective restorative dental treatment to eliminate tooth decay, strengthen the remaining tooth structure, and restore complete function.

Severe decay or extensive damage from trauma to the mouth may require a more extensive restoration, such as a dental crown, which covers the entire tooth to ensure that the structure remains intact.

An infection or damage that has reached deep inside the tooth may require a root canal, another common restorative dentistry treatment.

Why Restore Your Smile

The simple fact is that dental health problems do not heal on their own. They require intervention, or else they will get worse. Decay will spread and go deeper into the tooth, eventually causing the tooth to fall out. An infection that starts in the mouth can easily be carried through the bloodstream and reach other parts of the body. Without prompt and proper treatment, any tooth problem can quickly develop into something more serious and put your overall health at risk.

Oral health problems do not have to be a burden. When problems are detected early, treatment is usually simple, plus the long-term benefits of early treatment far outweigh any potential cost. Dental health issues that are allowed to worsen become more painful and complicated and costly to treat. Seeking treatment at the first sign of a problem is the best strategy for your oral health, your overall health, and your wallet.
