Common Questions About Restorative Dentistry

Question: Why do I need restoration?

Answer: Any damage or health issue that affects your tooth’s ability to function will require restoration. For example, dental infection, decay, cracks, chips, and disorders such as TMJ dysfunction and bruxism may require restore care to address. Without treatment, these issues can progress, leading to discomfort and potentially tooth loss.

Question: How do I know if I require a restoration?

Answer: If you notice sudden discomfort then you may need treatment. A toothache or tooth sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures that doesn’t subside after 48 hours may require treatment. Never ignore discomfort in your teeth as you run the risk of a city becoming an infection and threatening the health and stability of your smile.

Question: What are common examples of restorative dentistry?

Answer: Common restorative treatments include dental fillings, crowns, root canals or extractions. Which procedure will best address your issues will depend on a number of factors. Prior to treatment we will perform a thorough examination using advanced technology. We can then decide which procedure will best address your smile needs. By treating these issues early you reduce the risk of worsened discomfort, damage, or tooth loss.
