Restorative dentistry is a specialized branch of dental care focused on repairing and restoring the health, function, and aesthetics of teeth and oral structures. It encompasses a range of procedures designed to address various dental issues, including tooth decay, trauma, wear, and structural damage.
Common restorative dental treatments include dental fillings, which replace decayed or damaged tooth material, and dental crowns, which cover and protect weakened or extensively decayed teeth. Bridges and implants are used to replace missing teeth, while dentures provide a removable option for tooth replacement. Root canal therapy treats infected or damaged tooth pulp, preserving the tooth’s structure.
