Restorative dentistry is the field of dentistry that’s focused on repairing damaged teeth and repairing missing teeth. Depending on the extent of the damage to your teeth, the treatments used to restore your smile can vary quite a bit.
For example, if you have a few cavities, they may need to be repaired with treatments like dental fillings and dental crowns, which are relatively fast, straightforward, and affordable.
However, if you have more serious dental issues like infected or missing teeth, you may require more costly and complex procedures such as root canals, dental bridges, dental implants to reverse the damage to your smile.
Each patient is different, and at Carmel Mountain Dental Care, our doctors will examine your mouth, determine the extent of your oral health issues, and provide you with recommendations on how to restore your smile. Together, you can develop a restorative dentistry plan that meets your oral health needs, your schedule, and your budget.
Restorative dentistry can usually be avoided as long as you take steps to care for your mouth properly and protect it from injuries.
First and foremost, you need to make sure that you’re maintaining good at-home oral hygiene. Brush twice a day for two minutes, floss once per day, and make sure to see your dentist at Carmel Mountain Dental Care every six months for an oral exam and teeth cleaning. By taking proper care of your mouth, you can avoid cavities, infected teeth, gum disease, and tooth loss.
The other major cause of tooth damage is oral injuries. One of the best ways to reduce your risk of dental trauma is to wear an athletic mouthguard whenever you’re playing a contact sport or enjoying a hobby that could pose a risk to your mouth, like skateboarding. With a custom-fitted mouthguard from Carmel Mountain Dental Care, you’ll be able to protect your smile and avoid oral injuries.
