What is restorative dentistry?
Restorative dentistry is essentially the diagnosis, management, and treatment of oral diseases, infection and decay of the teeth. Many individuals may believe that restorative dentistry simply focusses on restoring the function of the teeth within the mouth, however restorative dentistry also strives to improve the aesthetic appearance of a patient's smile. Decay of the teeth (or even several teeth) within the mouth may be due to an infected pulp, which is the inside or ‘core’ of the tooth. Dental implants could be argued as the most popular type of restorative dentistry.

Patients may suffer from missing teeth from within the mouth due to oral diseases and infections (such as gum disease) which can lead to their teeth falling out. Aside from oral diseases and infections, teeth can be lost through incidents, such as a car or bicycle accident.
Choosing the right dental treatment for yourself can be tough, patients may base their decision on finances, or the severity of their individual dental situation. Individuals may be debating between dental implants or dentures as a form of tooth replacement, however we believe dental implants may work best for many people. Dental implants are unique in the way that they are custom made uniquely for each individual dental case. Patients will receive a porcelain crown that matches perfectly the shape, and shade of their natural teeth. Aside from the replacement of teeth within the mouth, dental implants can also be used to stabilise dentures for patients.
