Restorative Dentistry at Smile Creations

Helping you keep your smile perfectRestorative dentistry is an umbrella term for the treatment and diagnosis of conditions relating to the teeth and any structures that support them. Restorative treatment is commonly used to repair damaged or missing teeth. This field also includes the treatment of damaged oral tissue or bone structure.

Restorative procedures can be instrumental to increasing the aesthetic appeal of a person's smile and can have several benefits for general oral health; untreated tooth decay can cause infection to spread to other teeth or parts of the mouth. Missing and damaged teeth can also lead to malocclusion which has implications for the actions of eating and talking. This is similar to having neatly arranged books in two rows one above the other, if one was to remove some from the top or lower arrangement the possibilty of total or partial collapse of the arrangement is very likely, similar to the situation that arises in teeth.

Restorative dentistry also includes the treatment of damaged tooth structures; the most common procedures include root canal treatment, where the infected pulp of the tooth is removed and an apicectomy, which involves accessing an affected tooth through the bone.
