Restorative dentistry can be used to treat a variety of issues, including damaged or broken teeth, severe tooth decay, misaligned teeth, gaps between teeth and oddly shaped teeth. If you have issues with the state of your mouth, or have severe dental issues and aren't sure where to begin, a restorative dentist may be able to help. This type of dentistry is important for many reasons, including the following:
Encourage Good Oral Hygiene Restorative dentistry helps encourage overall oral hygiene. Having corrective dental work done helps create even spaces between your teeth so that you are able to easily brush and floss regularly. This eliminates bacteria build-up and helps prevent bad breath, as well as more serious oral health issues. If your teeth are broken, chipped or decaying, it can be quite difficult to care for them correctly. A restorative dentist can help improve the overall situation so that you can take care of your mouth more easily moving forward. Keep Teeth Correctly Aligned If your teeth are incorrectly spaced, you may find that you have large gaps between some of them and tightly cramped spaces between others. If you have gaps where entire teeth are missing, you may find that your other teeth shift to incorrect locations within your mouth. Restorative dentistry helps make sure each tooth is in its correct location, and that there is room between your teeth to thoroughly clean them. It's much easier to care for teeth that are correctly spaced, and you'll find that your overall appearance and confidence improve as well. Increase Self Esteem We're taught from childhood that first impressions count and that our smiles are the first thing that people notice about our appearance. This means that if you have cosmetic issues with your teeth, are missing teeth or have dental problems that are clearly visible, it's easy to feel the effect on your self-esteem. Restorative dentistry is a great way to improve your self-esteem and boost your confidence. Your dentist can evaluate your needs, then help repair the issues that you're dealing with, working through a comprehensive treatment plan. You'll gain a bright smile with straight teeth that you can be proud of. A dentist that specializes in restorative work can help repair issues with your teeth, ranging from mild to severe.
