Restorative Dentistry and Replacement Teeth
Restorative dentistry is the process of restoring missing, damaged, or diseased teeth to optimal form and function. Performed by a general dentist such as Dr. Beck or Dr. Hart, restorative dentistry will renew your oral health and promote overall wellness. Replacing missing teeth and restoring damaged teeth are vital to the integrity of surrounding teeth, and we offer several durable, esthetic options.
If you're missing one or more teeth, consider dental implants as a replacement option. As your general dentist, Dr. Beck or Dr. Hart will custom design a single replacement tooth, bridge, denture, or partial to secure to the dental implant. Because they are anchored to the jaw, dental implants prevent jaw deterioration. They also restore optimal function, which allows for a full, healthy diet.
Research shows that decayed and missing teeth negatively affect surrounding teeth. A cavity left untreated can spread to adjacent teeth and cause a host of problems, including abscess and blood-borne infection. When teeth are missing, remaining teeth to shift out of place in an effort to take on the workload of the missing teeth. This can actually lead to more tooth loss. Talk to Dr. Beck or Dr. Hart about restorative therapies and replacement teeth options. A healthy mouth is the gateway to a healthy body.
