We all want a great-looking smile, but sometimes even if we practice good oral hygiene, we may lose some of our teeth. It can be difficult to know where to turn when we lose some or all of our teeth, and getting your smile back is incredibly important to your quality of life and how you feel about yourself in public. Losing your teeth doesn't mean your smile is gone forever. Thanks to the latest in dental technology, restorative dentistry can give you back a smile that looks and feels like natural teeth.
Restorative dentistry can give you back your smile in many different ways, so don't feel you have to settle for just one option. Find the best option for your situation and needs by talking to your dentist.
What is Restorative Dentistry?
Restorative dentistry is the collection of dental treatments used to restore a person’s smile after losing one or more of their teeth. Restorative dentistry uses many options across multiple dental disciplines to give folks many choices when getting their smile back.
Some options range from dental products and applications to prosthetics, cosmetics, and surgical solutions to replace missing teeth.
Who is Eligible for Restorative Dentistry?
Because restorative dentistry covers many options for tooth recovery and replacement, anyone with issues with their teeth is eligible for therapeutic dentistry procedures.
Whether you’re just missing a single tooth and want a complete smile or lost an entire arch and want to be able to enjoy your favorite foods again, there are options available to fit your needs.
Types of Restorative Procedures
As we discussed, there is a full range of options based on your needs and preferences.
You may opt for a solution such as a dental bridge supported by your remaining teeth on each side for those only missing a few teeth. If you’re missing an entire arch or both arches, you may opt for dentures or cosmetic dentures to give back your smile and ability to enjoy the foods you love.
If you’re looking for a more permanent solution to replacing one or more teeth, you may consider single or multiple dental implants. A dental implant attaches to the jawbone and permanently replaces a missing tooth. You can choose a complete set of implants or even a group of implant-supported dentures that are much more secure and long-lasting than traditional dentures.
