Restorative Dentistry

Simply put, restorative dentistry attempts to restore any diseased, injured, or abnormal teeth you may have to their normal function.

Types of Restoration Dentistry

There are different concentrations within the field of dental restoration, including:

Endodontics: from the Greek word endo “inside”; and odons “tooth.” Endodontics is commonly referred to as root canal treatment and is indicated when the pulp (which contains the nerves, arterioles, venules, lymphatic tissue, and fibrous tissue of the tooth) becomes diseased or injured. In some cases, root canals may be performed by a restorative dentist.

Periodontics: around your teeth. A restorative dentist not only restores your teeth but also focuses on the health of your gums. Healthy gums are the foundation of a healthy mouth!

Prosthodontics: Prosthetic dentistry is a concentration of dentistry in which your restorative dentist rehabilitates the look and function of your teeth using prosthetics such as implants, crowns, bridges, partials, and dentures.
