What Is Restorative Dentistry?
‘Restorative’ generally means to put back or replace something that’s gone missing. Dental experts use the phrase "restorative dentistry" to describe how they repair lost or injured teeth. The idea is to restore the symmetry in your face and bring out your natural smile and colours. It also helps restore the functions of the mouth.
If You Have Knocked-Out Teeth
If your tooth is knocked out, you should:
Hold the tooth by the chewing edge rather than the root.
Replace it in its socket and keep it there.
If it's not clean, just give it a little rinse. It should not be scrubbed or washed with soap.
If you're worried about unintentionally swallowing it, put it in milk.
Tissue or fabric should not be used to wrap the teeth.
More advice on what to do in different emergency scenarios such as the following:
Broken tooth - A chipped or fractured tooth can generally be saved, so call us right away. Based on the extent of the damage, we may recommend fillings, veneers, or a root canal.
Toothache - Please call us and describe your symptoms if you have a toothache or pain. In the meantime, you can use any relief medication. Don't put it on the sore tooth and use an ice pack to alleviate the pain.
Lost fillings - Use a soft piece of sugar-free chewing gum to cover the damaged area temporarily, but contact a dentist as soon as possible.
Dental Restorative Services
Restorative dental procedures are available at Sherwood Family Dental Clinic to keep you smiling. These are some of them:
Dental implants - A dental implant is an artificial root onto which a new tooth can be fixed. It is a highly common restorative treatment. Dental implants can improve your appearance as well as your ability to communicate.
Root canal treatment - Infected pulp (the nerves and blood vessels that help nourish the tooth's root canal system) is commonly treated with root canals. This treatment removes the infected pulp, as well as cleans and disinfects the inside of your tooth before sealing it.
Porcelain bridges - These are durable devices made out of metal-fused replacement teeth. They work to close any gaps left by lost teeth, whether one or several.
Modern restoration therapies can help you restore your lost tooth due to decay, injury, or other reasons. Call us today for a free introductory consultation to review your options.
