What is Restorative Dentistry?

Restorative dental treatment includes any dental treatment that focuses on repairing or restoring damaged oral structures. It can include procedures such as fillings, bridges, crowns and implants. The aim is to restore your natural smile and prevent future oral health problems. Restorative dentistry, which helps preserve natural teeth, also restores the function and integrity of tooth structure and health. Many procedures are used to restore teeth.

Restorative dental treatment options are available for patients with missing teeth, decay teeth, aesthetic problems in their teeth, function problems in the jaw and many more. There is no age limit for the application of restorative dental treatments. There are restorative dental treatments that can also be applied to children.

Tooth decay occurs when the enamel and dentin of the tooth are softened by acid attack after eating or drinking anything containing sugar. Over time, the acid creates a cavity (hole) in the tooth. If these decayed tissues are not cleaned, they will continue to grow. The filling of the decayed tissue in the tooth with filling materials is called restorative dental filling. While dental fillings can be black, the most preferred fillings today are white fillings. White fillings are aesthetic and have high bond strength to the tooth.

After cleaning the caries on the teeth, the gap formed should be filled. Inlay and Onlay applications are the filling made of ceramic in the laboratory to close the gap in the tooth. The purpose of the use of fillings in ceramics is to increase the durability as well as aesthetics. Inlay and onlay ceramic fillings do not discolor over time, they are very resistant to chewing forces, there is no wear and rupture. Since the porcelain surfaces are polished, food residues do not stick and they are hygienic.

What Should Be Considered After Restorative Dental Treatment?

Things to consider after restorative dental treatment may vary depending on the procedure. If anesthesia was given before the procedure, nothing should be eaten or drunk until the numbness subsides. When some decays are deep, sensitivity will occur for a few days after the procedure, but the sensitivity will decrease over time.

Restorative Dentistry Prices

Be sure to get information before starting any treatment, as the prices of restorative dental treatment will vary from how many teeth will be treated to the locations of the teeth to be treated.
