What Is Restorative Dentistry?
Restorative Dentistry is a concept of the study, diagnosis and integrated management of oral cavity diseases. Teeth and its supporting structures are very important because they bring the functional, psychological and aesthetic health of the individual patient. Multiple coordination of all functional, psychological and aesthetic needs help to achieve all these objectives.
Restorative dentistry revolves round the dental specialties of Endodontics, Periodontics and Prosthodontics (fixed and removable). Endodontic treatment deals with the treatment of cracked teeth and dental trauma. Root canal therapy is done for the diseased dental pulp to save the tooth. Periodontics or periodontal diseases is the treatment of gum when bacterial plaque accumulates on teeth. Untreated diseases lead to alveolar bone loss and tooth loss which is the major cause of tooth loss among adults. Prosthodontics is the multidisciplinary study and treatment of maxillofacial prosthetics including oral surgery and prosthodontic treatments. Multi-faceted care is required only when the things become complex due to oral health problems.
Restorative Dentistry is also called ‘Oral Rehabilitation’ due to its integrated multidisciplinary care in the field of Orthodontics, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Pediatric Dentistry, Dental and Maxillofacial Radiology. This interdisciplinary care is due to the needs of complex treatment which would increase the life span of the patients.
Restorative Dentistry is required by patients especially who have been affected by developmental disorders like hypodontia, cleft lip and palate, amelogenesis imperfecta requiring multidisciplinary care. Also those who have undergone traumatic injuries in face, mouth and teeth or those who have sustained the damage done in gums, tooth decay, acid erosion or tooth attrition would be the patients of restorative dentistry.
