Restorative Dentistry Boston MA
Restorative dentistry allows a patient to correct worn, decayed, damaged, or missing teeth. Your smile may be affected due to injury, decay, periodontal disease, or tooth loss. Restorative dentistry includes dental crowns, inlays, onlays, fillings, veneers, implants, bridges, and dentures. Preventative dentistry can avoid restorative procedures. For example, dental exams are important to maintain because they can detect issues early on.
Types of Restorations
There are two types of dental restorations to consider.
Dental fillings are common for direct dental restorations. This involves filling a cavity with composite-resin, amalgam, gold, or porcelain material. Composite-resin and amalgam are the most popular due to affordability yet are very effective.
Dental crowns, inlays, and onlays are indirect restoration procedures. Crowns are tooth-like caps that cover the entire exposed tooth. Inlays are placed within the cusps of the tooth and onlays cover one or more cusps. These restorations are also available in composite-resin, amalgam, gold, and porcelain.
Teeth replacement is restorative dentistry that can be referred to as prosthodontics. If you are missing teeth, dental implants, bridges, or dentures should be considered. Missing teeth can cause more issues like tooth decay, periodontal disease, unnatural teeth shifting, and more tooth loss. Therefore, patients should seek teeth replacement as soon as possible. A dental exam and consultation will be required to determine your best teeth replacement option.
