The human body is complex. When your oral health is threatened by serious disease or decay in your mouth, it can be detrimental for your whole system. An infection left unchecked and untreated can spread to your bloodstream and adversely impact your entire bodily health. This is why restorative dentistry is so vitally important.
Here at Chase Inspired Dentistry, in Draper Utah, we want to give you great dental health for better overall health.
What Is Restorative Dentistry?
Your teeth are susceptible to damage, like any other living part of your body. As such, they need and even deserve proper treatment and care. You wouldn’t put a bandaid on a broken wrist and hope it heals—that’s why we offer restorative dentistry treatments at Chase Inspired Dentistry.
Restorative dentistry focuses on renewing and strengthening your dental health. This includes managing diseases, infections, decay, and other damage that affects not only your teeth but also the supporting structures in your mouth.
It could be said that the very first type of dentistry to ever exist was restorative in nature. Patients experiencing pain necessitated the birth of dentistry, and there is and always will be a need for it today. Though we use better methods and tools for our dentistry today, our primary goal remains the same as ever: provide you with relief from pain and restore your smile to its former glory.
Types of Restorative Dentistry
Restoring your smile can take many different forms. We’re proud to offer many types of treatments to fix problems such as:
- Missing Teeth
- Broken or Chipped Teeth
- Cracked or Weakened Teeth
- Misshapen Teeth
- Decayed Teeth
- Infected Teeth
Learn more about some common restorative dental treatments below.
Fillings are one of the most used among all other types of restorative treatments. They replace the decayed portion or portions of your teeth that have been infected by bacteria and are causing cavities.
Bridges are used to replace one or two missing teeth in near proximity to each other. They are held in place by existing teeth and restore your smile by filling in the gap caused by missing teeth.
Implants are used to replace the root of a missing tooth. When you are missing a tooth or teeth, the implant can hold a crown or bridge in place and support it for years.
Veneers are thin layers of porcelain or composite material placed over the top of your teeth. They strengthen them, protect them, and make them uniform and whiter all at the same time.
Composite bonding is used if you have a chipped, broken, or cracked tooth. It serves to improve the aesthetic of your smile while also fixing issues such as those.
Dentures are a total set of teeth solution for patients missing all or nearly all their teeth. They allow patients to eat and communicate with greater ease.
Crowns are tooth-shaped caps that entirely cover a damaged, diseased, or decaying tooth. They are made to look exactly like your existing teeth.
Root canals are performed on teeth with severe internal decay. They permit the tooth to continue functioning like normal after the procedure seals them off from further decay and pain.
