What Is Restorative Dentistry?

Restorative dentistry is a term used to describe all dental treatments and procedures that restore teeth to good health and optimal function. Common restorative dental treatments, such as dental fillings, crowns, and dental bridges are typically offered by all family or general dentists.

Other restorative treatments such as dental implants are only offered by dentists who have received the specialized training and education necessary to provide these surgical dental restorations. Springfield Healthy Smiles provides both nonsurgical and surgical dental restorations including dental implants. 

Why Restorative Dental Treatments are Necessary

Restorative dental treatments are vital to maintaining long-term oral health. Much like you shouldn’t delay treatment for a broken bone, or a respiratory infection, you shouldn’t delay treatment for a fractured, broken, or infected tooth. The reason? The condition or injury will not heal on its own, and will more than likely worsen, spread, and serve as the catalyst for even more dental problems. Indeed,  failing to treat injured, damaged, or infected teeth lead to a domino effect of problems.

For example, consider that you have a broken tooth that could easily be treated with a dental crown. Without treatment, one of several things may happen. Part of the tooth could break off entirely. The interior of the tooth could become infected, spreading to your gums and causing gum disease. Eventually, you may lose the tooth, but before that, you’ll have to deal with the pain. Once the tooth is missing, you’ll have to replace the missing tooth with a dental bridge or implant.

Receiving the dental restorations you need when recommended by your dentist eliminates the need for more complex, and often much costlier treatments later in life.

Dental Fillings

Composite Fillings

Fillings that match your natural tooth color prevent cavities from spreading and compromising the strength of your teeth.

Dental Crowns

Dental Crowns

Custom-made dental crowns are designed to match your other teeth in shape, color, and size. They protect compromised teeth from cracks, fractures, infections, and decay.

Dental Bridges

Dental Bridge

Dental bridges are a nonsurgical restorative treatment to replace missing teeth. Dental bridges often require at least one dental crown, to firmly anchor the bridge in your mouth.

Dental Implants

Dental Implant Restorations

Dental implants have offered new hope to patients missing one or more teeth. Using a surgically implanted screw to replace a natural tooth root, dental implants are the most long-lasting dental restoration available.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Restorations

Do you offer payment plans for dental restorations?

Springfield Healthy Smiles accepts third-party financing through CareCredit. CareCredit offers low-interest financing options to make dental care more affordable.

Is a dental bridge as good as a dental implant?

Dental implants are widely seen as the best treatment for missing teeth because they prevent jawbone recession. However, dental bridges are much more common restorations. Both are effective in filling gaps in your smile.

What is the difference between a filling and a crown?

A crown covers the entire tooth. A filling fills in areas of decay. Large areas of decay often require a crown to prevent the tooth from fracturing.
