What is restorative dentistry?

One of our dental services is restorative dentistry, but it’s become clear that few people really understand what that means, so we decided to write an article to make it clear for you!

The definition of restorative dentistry is “is the study, diagnosis and integrated management of diseases of the teeth and their supporting structures and the rehabilitation of the dentition to functional and aesthetic requirements of the individual.”

The key to this whole area of dentistry is to bring your mouth back to full health and bring your teeth back to their original state both in looks and health. This is not just about the look of your smile, but rather a holistic approach which stops pain, restores function and leaves you with healthy teeth and gums.

Common restorative dentistry techniques include –

We want to preserve your natural teeth as much as possible, which is why we encourage everyone to visit the dentist every 6 months, rather than when they are experiencing pain. If we see problems developing it is much easier to fix it through simple things such as deep cleaning and perhaps small fillings, rather than extractions and implants.

However, don’t worry if you have left it a bit late, as you can see from the list above we have a range of options depending on your problem, your preferences and your budget. We are patient focused, so will create a treatment plan with you, to try to meet all your needs.

Our Marbella dental clinic offers restorative, cosmetic, paediatric, orthodontic, periodontic dentistry and much more, so whatever you need we can help. Come and book an appointment and let us stop the pain and make your mouth and teeth look and feel great. We look forward to meeting you.
