What is restorative dentistry?

Restorative dentistry is an area of dental practice focused on repairing or replacing damaged or decayed teeth. Not only does restorative treatment restore the structural integrity of teeth, but many treatments also prevent or slow further dental health issues.

Virtually everyone needs some form of restorative dental care at one point or another. Regardless of whether your needs are simple or complex, the team at Campustown Dental offers solutions to keep your smile as healthy as possible.

Routine dental exams are an important tool in reducing the need for restorative treatments. Your daily dental hygiene routines also help by removing plaque and bacteria before problems develop.

What are some examples of restorative dentistry treatments?

Campustown Dental offers the very latest in restorative dental tools and techniques. All diagnostic and treatment services rely on state-of-the-art technology, and team members attend ongoing educational opportunities to learn how to make the most of these tools. 

Some of the restorative options available through the practice include:

  • Fillings
  • Crowns
  • Bridges
  • Dentures
  • Dental implants
  • Root canal

Restorative care also helps repair damaged or infected gum tissue. Perio Protect® is one example, and laser surgery, scaling and planing, and other options also help address gum disease. 

How do I know which restorative options best fit my needs?

When you come in for a dental exam or diagnostic assessment, your dentist determines the type and extent of dental damage, infection, or decay. They then discuss all appropriate treatment options, providing an overview of what to expect in terms of the treatment experience, timeline, and budgeting. 

There is never any pressure to choose one treatment over another, and your dentist strives to answer any questions you have or address concerns as they arise. Once you decide how to move forward, the administrative team schedules your treatment. 

Some restorative treatments, like crowns and bridges, also deliver cosmetic benefits. In such cases, your insurance may cover part or all of the cost. The Campustown Dental staff ensures you understand the affordability of your treatment before you begin.
