The Importance of Restorative Dentistry
Your teeth’s function doesn’t end in making your smile picture-perfect. They also contribute to vital life functions such as eating and talking. A single missing tooth can create a lot of damage – it is more than just an unattended hole in your smile. Missing teeth can disrupt the normal balance of pressure in your mouth and surrounding area.
This disturbs the natural interplay between teeth and the jaw. The needed pressure that keeps the cheeks from sagging and lips from curling inwards will not be received by the jawbone, thus you’ll look older than your age.
Restorative dentistry stops this from happening by restoring the natural functions of the teeth.
Lightwood Dental’s Restorative Dentistry Treatments
Below are the Lightwood Dental services under restorative dentistry:
Dental crowns are restorative dental treatments that re-establish your teeth’s form, strength, and appearance by placing a tooth shaped “cap” over the prepared tooth.

Dental implants, which can be made from zirconia or titanium, are surgically inserted into the jaw and act as an artificial root for a new tooth. This fills the gap left by the missing tooth, and functions just like a natural tooth.

Dentures are removable replacements for natural teeth when disease or inadequate dental care has resulted in tooth loss. They look like your natural teeth and reinstate your smile, including other functions of the teeth such as eating and speaking.

A dental bridge is used to replace multiple missing teeth, filling the gaps by bridging the patients remaining natural teeth to each other.
Full mouth reconstruction
When more than one dental treatment is needed, a full mouth reconstruction is often the best option. It is a combination of restorative, cosmetic, and preventive dentistry to give you a healthy mouth and a perfect smile.
Inlay and onlays
Inlays and onlays restore the capacity and function of a damaged tooth while ensuring minimal removal of natural tooth. It is best when the affected tooth is too damaged for a traditional filling, but not damaged enough to require a crown.
