Restorative Dentistry is the restoration of lost tissue to teeth, with direct restorations (such as making composite fillings) or indirect restorations (such as making porcelain facings or crowns).
In addition, dental elements may be lost in their entirety. These can be replaced by indirect restorations, such as a bridge or a crown on an implant. If several teeth are lost, a removable device, such as a plate or a frame, can also be made.
The restorative dentist diagnoses the total oral situation. If there are major problems in the mouth such as: slowly collapsing bite, caries, fracture, stance change, he will make a step-by-step plan to address these problems. It is up to the restorative dentist to prevent deterioration and restore the function of the teeth.
