We’re big believers in preventing problems before they occur but when needed, careful restorative dentistry is the key to excellent results in order to improve the overall long-term prognoses of your teeth.
These days in dentistry we are lucky to have good evidence in restorative dentistry which helps us to decide what is the best option for you and your teeth. We will discuss these options with you before you make an informed choice.
Contemporary restorative dentistry is all about preserving remaining tooth tissue and their supporting structures.
The field of restorative dentistry involves the preservation of teeth and replacing missing teeth. This includes treatment of decay, tooth wear and gum diseases, the most prevalent being gingivitis and periodontitis.
We use minimally invasive fillings, crowns, root canal treatment and prosthetic tooth replacements such as bridges and dentures using support from teeth, gums and dental implants.
Our aim in restorative dentistry is to use techniques which are well backed by scientific evidence and clinical studies to provide you with predictable outcomes whenever possible.
This means using high-end tried and tested materials and equipment with a high regard within the dental profession.
We use dental dam when providing composite fillings or root canal treatment to isolate teeth, keep them dry and free of saliva. It protects the rest of your mouth and throat, gives us better outcomes and gives you more comfort when at the business end of care. In addition, most patients who have not had it before tell us that the treatment process is much more comfortable and acceptable.
