When you visit the dentist for your bi-annual checkup and cleaning appointments, you are being proactive by taking advantage of preventive dentistry treatments. X-rays, removing harmful plaque from your teeth, prophylaxis (professional cleaning), and fluoride treatments are all meant to keep your smile strong and healthy, and to protect your teeth from decay. However, regardless of how diligent you are regarding your oral health, you may still experience decay; toothache; a chipped, cracked, or broken tooth; or a number of other dental issues, or accidents. In such cases, you will need restorative dentistry.
Restorative dentistry does just that, it “restores” the health and function of your tooth or teeth. Restorative treatments are those that are required to maintain your oral health and include:
- Dental Fillings
- Root Canal Therapy
- Crowns/Veneers (not merely for cosmetic reasons)
- Tooth Extraction
- Dental Implants
- Scaling and root planing (to treat gingivitis/periodontal disease)
- Oral Surgery
- And more
When it comes to treatment choices, the doctors and staff here at Shrewsbury will offer you the least invasive dental treatments to save the maximum amount of healthy tooth structure while maintaining the health, function, and integrity of your damaged tooth.
