Are you comparing restorative dentists in Colorado Springs?
The purpose of restorative dentistry is to help Colorado Springs residents maintain a healthy looking smile by restoring teeth that have been damaged or decayed. If you have lost a tooth, options for replacement include a prosthetic tooth, a bridge or partial prosthodontics.
In addition to making patients look and feel better about their smile, restorative dentistry also improves the function of their teeth and ensures the prevention of future dental issues.
At the Dublin Dental Center, Dr. Pool and her team will do a thorough dental evaluation to determine the best method of restorative treatment. In order to assess the factors that may have led to decay, tooth damage and/or loss, a full set of x-rays will be taken and the dentist will make note of any physical factors that may have contributed to the problem.
What is restorative dentistry?
Restorative methods of treatment will vary, but the most common are dental crowns or caps. Dental crowns function to make the natural tooth stronger and improve appearance. Unlike fillings, crowns are used for teeth with excessive decay or after a root canal procedure.
When teeth are missing, dental bridges are used to fill the gap, ideally when the open space is located between two other teeth. After a tooth is lost, teeth can drift and become misaligned, causing further dental problems over time. A dental bridge is an appliance that prevents drifting and makes dental hygiene a lot easier.
