How much do you know about the different areas of dentistry? Perhaps you have some solid ideas about particular treatments (like you know that we typically suggest a filling for a cavity). However, do you know what separates restorative care from other areas of dental care? If not, we encourage you to find out more. Becoming educated about restorations and your options for improving your oral health once it declines or when you’re in need of a repair can set your mind at ease. When you know you have a solution, your “what if?” questions take a hike and you can feel confident with the knowledge that by scheduling an appointment, we will save your smile.
What Does Restorative Dentistry Accomplish?
Restorative dentistry is the area of dental care that allows us to fix things that go wrong. This means making physical repairs to your tooth tissue when damage occurs. Restorative treatments also include the goal of returning your mouth to its original state of oral health.
Does Restorative Care Require Urgency?
You may assume that your restoration does not require you to act quickly but it’s important for you to adopt our outlook on this topic. Choosing to schedule your restorative treatment is actually extremely important. You see, most diseases that you will experience in your mouth are progressive. Trauma and damage will not heal themselves. Diseases and damage will continue to worsen until you allow us to treat them, which means you may end up with a need for costlier, more complex treatments if you ignore our initial suggestions.
