What is Restorative Dentistry?

Restorative Dentistry refers to the management and procedures that your dentist performs to keep your mouth healthy and functional. While in the process, it CAN improve the overall look of one’s smile, it is first and foremost concerned with keeping the mouth functioning as best as it can.

What are some examples of restorative dentistry procedures?

Dr. Derek Bouma or Dr. Tony Kim will discuss with you which procedure may be the best option for you based on your specific needs. At Pathways Dental, we believe in being conservative, and we are committed to finding the best option for our patients.

DENTAL IMPLANTS

Implants are made of titanium and is strategically placed into the bone where the tooth roots once were. Once properly attached to the bone (osseointegration), we can place the proper restoration on top, such as a crown, bridge, or denture.

DENTAL BRIDGES

A dental bridge is a restorative option for missing teeth to use adjacent teeth as anchors and connecting them to fabricate a single unit prosthesis.

Benefits of replacing missing teeth with a Dental Bridge:

  • Restore function and chewing ability
  • Esthetics
  • Prevent shifting and uneven wear of teeth

It is best to replace teeth as soon as possible to prevent the negative outcomes.

DENTAL CROWNS

Crowns are restorations that fully cover teeth that are compromised, damaged, or at a risk for failing. Crowns act as a “helmet” that goes over the tooth, and unlike fillings, they address biting force down the centre to prevent fracturing of teeth.

DENTURES

A denture is a removable dental restoration replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissue. They are made to closely resemble your natural teeth and may even enhance your smile.

There are two types of dentures – complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all of the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. A partial denture not only fills in the spaces created by missing teeth, it prevents other teeth from shifting.

DENTAL FILLINGS

One of the most common reasons to visit your Calgary AB Dentists is to get a filling placed. Often times it is due to cavities or chips being discovered at your routine check-up. These fillings tend to be minor and preventative.

It is important to catch cavities in early stages so we can avoid bigger problems and more tooth structure loss. When cavities are allowed to get larger, the tooth may now require more than a filling. It could potentially require root canal and/or dental crown.
