Even with proper at-home oral hygiene and ongoing preventive dental care, teeth can sometimes become damaged or diseased due to injury, age, illness, and additional factors. At Glen Ellyn Dentistry, we use restorative dentistry to help our patients address concerns that affect the health, form, and function of the oral anatomy.
What Is Restorative Dentistry?
Restorative dentistry is a branch of dental medicine that focuses on evaluating injuries and detecting, diagnosing, and treating oral diseases that affect teeth, gums, and the underlying structures of the mouth. Restorative dentistry treatments focus on restoring the health, form, and function of the mouth and its structures.
Improved or restored function of the teeth and other maxillofacial structures
Restored ability to eat and speak normally
Preservation of your facial structures and appearance
Arrested tooth decay
Treated and/or managed periodontal (gum) disease
Restored gum tissues
Replaced missing teeth
Restoration of teeth that have been severely weakened or compromised
Treatments to support the health of the periodontal structures
Living with damaged or decayed teeth and gums can be painful and uncomfortable. It can also affect a person’s appearance and self-esteem. By restoring a patient’s oral health, we can address these concerns to revitalize oral health, appearance, and confidence.
Our Restorative Dental Services
Dental treatments that help manage and treat oral diseases and restore the form and function of the gums, teeth, and underlying structures are considered restorative dental treatments.
At Glen Ellyn Dentistry, we provide a comprehensive list of advanced restorative dental treatments, including:
Depending on the degree of infection, damage, or decay present, a comprehensive restoration treatment plan might include one or more treatments to help restore a patient’s teeth and gums to an optimal level of health and function.
Complement Your Treatment With Cosmetic Dentistry
While restorative treatments aim to restore the health and function of a person’s smile, they can be paired with a variety of cosmetic treatments to restore, improve, or enhance the appearance of a patient’s smile. In fact, some restorative treatments can also be used as cosmetic treatments. Plus, restorative dental treatments are often paired with cosmetic services to reconstruct or makeover a patient’s smile to achieve both revitalized oral health and a refreshed appearance.
