Oral Health Restoration
Generally a dental checkup should happen every six months, but sometimes you need to come more often than that for different treatments. Oral health restoration or restorative dentistry is one such reason.
What Is Oral Health Restoration?
Oral health restoration is also known as restorative dentistry. It is one of the best ways to maintain oral health and the aesthetic of the mouth. The process is undertaken when a dentist identifies any oral disease. After a diagnosis, treatment can begin.
Who Needs Oral Health Restoration Treatment?
Oral Health Restoration may be suggested to patients who have tooth/teeth that are:
- Affected due to any trauma treatment
Benefits of Oral Health Restoration Treatment
Apart from rectifying a tooth that is causing problems, the process can also help you by:
- Aligning teeth appropriately by filling the empty spaces on the gum
- Replacing damaged or broken teeth, giving you better oral health and preventing the build up of bacteria and plaque that causes tooth and gum decay
- Boosting self esteem that may have dropped due to a missing tooth affecting both your appearance and health
What Is The Process?
The process for restorative dentistry generally starts during your regular visit to the dentist. The process involves visual, mechanical and radiographical techniques for analysing the teeth’s surfaces. At this stage, if some anomalies are found in your teeth and/or gums a restorative treatment is suggested.
With the recent technological advances, a dentist can now perform restorative dentistry in one or two appointments. If the dental treatment is complex, then multiple visits will be required. In order to give you comfort during the procedure, your dentist may use anaesthesia or another form of sedation.
Types of Restorative Dentistry
There are several types of methods that are utilised for oral health restoration, they are:
- Crown and Bridges
- Removable Partial
It is essential that one must maintain their oral health and hygiene properly because bacteria plaque can build up around the dental restoration. This will eventually lead to the progression or recurrence of the problem. Periodontal gum disease or tooth decay can be prevented by controlling the plaque and tartar build-up that often results in causing various types of dental and gum infections. Hence brush your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste and floss them every day.
