Even though we seldom talk about this topic, Arizona Smile Designers would like to take a minute and talk about restorative dentistry for your overall dental health. Please read below to learn more about this type of dentistry and how we can help you too.
For those of you who may not be as familiar with restorative dentistry, this basically describes the process of diagnosing, and then managing dental diseases that can either affect the teeth or their supporting structures like the gums or jawbone. Through this process, the aesthetic and functional state of a patient’s teeth can be restored to original fighting shape, or in some cases, even be improved to a point better than how they were originally. Most cases of restorative dentistry usually involve restoration for missing or damaged teeth and include treatments like dental implants, bridges, veneers, and fillings.
While many cases restorative dentistry occur due to dental diseases that affect the teeth directly, there are also instances when they apply to the surrounding gums. This form of dental disease is referred to as periodontal disease. Even in these cases, restorative dentistry is the answer, and here at Arizona Smile Designers, we can help.
