Restorative Dentistry Q & A

What is restorative dentistry?

Restorative dentistry is any procedure or treatment that repairs or replaces damaged or missing teeth. Restorative services provide better jaw functionality, strength, and support. Teeth in need of repair may cause harm to your health. Restorative dentistry circumvents this through several procedures, such as: 

Dental implants

Dental implants offer solutions to missing teeth by securing a structure into your jawbone known as an implant body. This is then secured into place and fitted with a customized replica tooth, which is seamless and indistinguishable from your natural set of teeth. 


Dental implants require ample jawbone density to work correctly. If you don’t have enough density, AB Dental & Oral Surgery may require grafting surgery.


Crowns cover teeth that may have been chipped or damaged due to certain factors, such as physical trauma or infection. Your dentist reshapes your tooth to be fitted with a dental crown and ensures a snug fit. This crown blends in effortlessly with your natural teeth and secures firmly into place with a strong adhesive.


Bridges literally bridge the gap between several missing teeth. They often consist of several crowns secured together to achieve maximum results. Like crowns, bridges blend in seamlessly with your existing set of teeth.

Does restorative dentistry provide cosmetic benefits?

Although the main function of restorative services aims to enhance jaw support and stability, these services may also improve your smile’s appearance. For example, replacing a lost tooth provides both better jaw function and aesthetics. 


Not all restorative treatments provide this extra benefit, however. This is the case for teeth that aren’t often visible, such as molars.

Why is restorative dentistry important?

Restorative services treat and prevent tooth damage and decay. Additionally, these services often provide great benefits, such as:

  • Pain reduction
  • Improved oral health
  • Better chewing
  • Improved smile appearance

AB Dental & Oral Surgery offers many comprehensive services to achieve these results. Their extensive dental knowledge can remedy any ailment impeding your oral health with their extensive dental expertise.
