At Gerda Family Dental, we do everything we can to work with our patients to prevent oral health problems from occurring. However, teeth can sometimes become lost or damaged due to injury, disease, age, or decay. If your teeth become damaged or you develop an oral health problem, we have a comprehensive list of restorative dentistry treatments to help restore your oral health and the form and function of your teeth.
What Is Restorative Dentistry?
Restorative dentistry is a branch of dentistry that focuses on treating oral health problems and restoring the form and function of damaged or lost teeth.
Why Is Restorative Dentistry So Important?
Restorative dentistry is essential to oral health and physical wellbeing because it helps to address oral health problems such as periodontal disease, missing teeth, and damaged teeth.
Untreated, these issues can have a detrimental impact on a person’s oral health, ability to speak and eat as usual, and even on appearance.
What Oral Health Issues Can Restorative Dentistry Address?
Restorative dentistry is designed to address countless oral health problems, including:
- Tooth decay and cavities
- Periodontal disease
- Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
- Loose fillings
- Missing teeth
Any issue that affects the health, form, and function of a person’s teeth and mouth can be addressed with restorative dentistry.
