Restorative Dentistry

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. 

What Are the Benefits of Restorative Dentistry?

Restorative dentistry offers countless benefits, including:

  • Improved or restored oral health
  • 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
  • Improved appearance

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:

  • Periodontics
  • Periodontal disease treatment
  • CHAO Pinhole Surgical Technique
  • Dentures (full and partial)
  • Dental bridges
  • Dental bonding
  • Dental crowns
  • Inlays and onlays

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.
