Restorative Dentistry Q & A
What is restorative dentistry?
Restorative dentistry is a branch of dentistry focusing on restoring teeth that were lost or damaged due to decay, disease, infection, or trauma. Restorative dentistry techniques can restore a single tooth, or they may restore multiple teeth at the same time.
Having teeth restored prevents the complications that come with having missing teeth, such as shifting and loss of your other teeth, and bone loss to your jaw.
What dental restorations are available?
Dr. Kraft offers several different types of dental restorations to her patients. Some of the restorations they offer include:
- Dental implants
Each of the restorations available is intended for adifferent purpose. Dr. Kraft will explain all of the options available to you in detail so you can make an informed decision.
How are restorative dentistry procedures determined?
Dr. Kraft performs a thorough examination of the entire mouth. Based on the information that she gathers on her exam and from digital x-rays, treatment will be recommended to restore the health and apperance of your teeth.
How much does restorative dentistry cost?
The cost of different restorative dentistry procedures varies considerably. In addition, some of these treatments may be covered by your dental insurance policy, while others may not. Before you begin any restorative dentistry treatment plan, Dr. Kraft will provide you with a detailed quote of your expenses.
Is restorative dentistry painful?
Some of the procedures used to restore damaged teeth would be painful for patients without anesthetic. Dr. Kraft uses local anesthesia to keep you comfortable during these procedures.
