Restorative Dentistry Treatments

There are multiple restorative dentistry treatments available. Experts at Geelan Dental Care will help determine which is right for you after a dental examination.
•  Dental Fillings – Dental fillings are one of the most common restorative dentistry procedures. It is ideal for restoring teeth that have minor tooth decay. There are various filling materials, including silver amalgam, which is the most common but tends to stand out. Other popular materials include dental resin that is natural teeth colored and is more aesthetically pleasing.
•  Dental Bridges – Dental bridges replace missing teeth. It is a false tooth, pontic, placed over the missing tooth and supported by the surrounding teeth.
•  Dental Crowns – Crowns are teeth shaped caps that help restore the tooth's shape. They are ideal for people with chipped, decaying or missing teeth. It restores the full functionality of the tooth and mimics the exact appearance of the tooth as well.
•  Dental Implants – Implants replace the entire structure of the tooth, including its root. A dental implant consists of a titanium screw that is embedded in the jaw bone. Once it fuses to the bone, an abutment is placed on it over which the dentist places a crown completing the restoration process.
•  Dentures – You can also get full or partial dentures to replace missing teeth. Dentures go over your existing teeth and are removable. They are ideal for people who do not want to undergo a lengthy invasive procedure.
•  Root Canal – a root canal is often the last treatment option for decaying teeth. Here, the dentist will try to remove the infection from the teeth's roots to avoid tooth extraction. However, if the tooth structure is severely damaged, the dentist may look at other options, including dental implants.
•  Inlays and Onlays – these are ideal for teeth with a significant amount of decay. If the tooth enamel isn't damaged enough to warrant an extensive restorative procedure, the dentist may choose to opt for inlays and onlays instead.

Restorative dentistry is an ideal option for all those looking to preserve the integrity of their dental structure. Most of these treatments offer long-term solutions and help protect your teeth from further decay.
