HOW RESTORATIVE DENTISTRY CAN FIX YOUR SMILE

Restorative Dentistry Cheltenham

Restorative dentistry focuses on the diagnosis, prevention, and management of dental and oral diseases.

Your Cheltenham dentist may recommend a customised treatment plan to restore decayed, chipped, cracked, discoloured, or even missing teeth.

Whether it’s a tooth filling, dental implant, crown, or bridge, there are many different options available depending on need.

Restorative Dentistry Treatment Options

Dental Implants Blurb Cheltenham

Dental Implants

Dental implants address missing teeth so you can achieve a complete, beautiful smile.

The dental implant integrates with the bone to hold and support a dental prosthesis such as crowns, bridges, and dentures.

Crowns and Bridges Blurb Cheltenham

Crowns and Bridges

Unlike removable dental appliances such as dentures, which you can take out and clean every day, crowns and bridges are fixed onto teeth or implants.

Dental Bonding Blurb Cheltenham

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is a procedure in which a tooth-coloured resin material is applied and hardened with a special light, which ultimately “bonds” the material to the tooth to restore or improve a person’s smile.

Dentures

If you have missing teeth, wearing dentures will benefit your appearance and health since they make it more convenient to eat and speak better than you could with missing teeth.

When you lose all your teeth, your facial muscles can sag, making you look older. Dentures can help enhance your facial appearance.

Tips for Taking Care of your Restorations

  1. Brush your teeth at least twice every day. Electric toothbrushes can help clean plaque off your teeth and restorations.
  2. Floss in between your teeth, dental implants, crowns, bridges and underneath the gumline every day.
  3. Do not bite and chew on hard or sticky foods. These can damage your dental implant, bridge, or crown.
  4. Rinse with an antibacterial mouthwash to help fight plaque bacteria around restorations.

Frequently Asked Questions

What tooth replacement options do I have?
There are several replacement options available; some of them are fixed and some removable. Removable options are dentures. Fixed options include dental implants, crowns, bridges and fillings.
Why should I save my tooth? Can't I just have it extracted?
It’s most favourable to save the tooth. Tooth can always be pulled; however, if a replacement is not placed timely, the other teeth left will shift out of place.

Damaged, loosened, or missing tooth/teeth, can lead to tooth movement, shifting, and bite changes, which are permanent alterations with harmful effects.

How can I prevent periodontal disease?
The best way to prevent oral diseases is to brush twice a day and floss daily. Visit your Cheltenham dentist for a check-up and a scale and clean. This way, we can protect your teeth and gums and detect and treat any early symptoms of gum disease.
