What is Restorative Dentistry?
Restorative dentistry refers to the integrated management of oral health problems and the effort to restore the mouth to a functional and esthetic state. The ultimate goal of restorative dentistry is to replace a patients’ missing teeth while preserving their natural teeth as much as possible. At Macleod Trail Dental, we offer restorative procedures such as dental implants, crowns, bridges and full or partial dentures to promote dental health.
It is essential to replace missing teeth because such gaps are vulnerable to plaque-causing bacteria which can cause cavities and tooth decay. Additionally, missing teeth will put unnatural stress on your remaining teeth, eventually shifting their natural alignment which may lead to a collapsed bite and loss of vertical dimension.
