The art of restoring decayed, damaged, and lost teeth.
Dental caries, more widely known as tooth decay, is the most prevalent disease in humans. It involves the breakdown of teeth due to bacterial activity. Despite this, it’s easily controllable. Regular check-ups can identify cavities and other conditions before they cause symptoms and serious problems. The term” Restorative Dentistry” is the integrated management of oral health problems and restoring teeth to their normal function and shape.
This procedure can be done in a single office visit. Treatment options depend on the situation. Professional fluoride treatment may help to restore your tooth enamel and sometimes reverse a cavity in the very early stages. When decay has progressed beyond the earliest stage, the main treatment option is filling such as tooth-colored composite resin, porcelain or dental amalgam. Composite can be used for a wide range of cosmetic restoration procedures as filling in gaps, cracks, and chips achieving a healthy and beautiful smile. They have a strong bond and can be easily repaired.
