What Is Restorative Dentistry?

This term refers to any dental treatment that is primarily concerned with restoring the function of your teeth after they’ve been damaged by an oral injury or an oral disease like tooth decay. This includes a wide variety of different treatments ranging from fillings to crowns and bridges, dental implants, dentures, and more.

The Importance of Restorative Care

First, restorative dentistry restores both your smile and your bite. You won’t have to deal with issues like damaged or missing teeth, and your smile will look completely natural after treatment at Pawlus Dental. 

In addition, restorative care ensures you can avoid further complications. If you don't get help for a small cavity, for example, it will progress and could become infected, requiring a more costly, invasive treatment like a root canal. Getting care right away prevents these complications, and saves you time and money.

Composite Dental Fillings

Composite dental fillings are made of a resin material that looks and feels just like natural tooth enamel. A filling is the best way to treat a minor-to-moderate cavity, eliminate the risk of further complications, and restore your smile.

Laser Therapy

With our Solea Hard Tissue Laser, we can avoid the use of dental drills for most restorative treatments. Not only does this increase your comfort, but Solea dental lasers are more precise than traditional dental tools, which leads to better overall outcomes.

Root Canal Therapy

We offer both anterior (front) and posterior (rear) root canals to treat infected teeth. In this process, your doctor will create an opening in your tooth, then remove infected material, sterilize the tooth, and fill it with an inert substance to strengthen it. Then, your tooth will be protected with a crown or filling. Root canal therapy provides you with relief from the pain of an infected tooth, and prevents further complications such as tooth loss.

CEREC Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are built to look and feel just like a natural tooth, and are used to restore decayed or damaged teeth. After your tooth is trimmed, we will scan your tooth, and use a CEREC machine to carve a porcelain crown that will fit into your smile perfectly. Thanks to modern CEREC technology, you can get a crown in just a single appointment.

Dental Bridges

A dental bridge uses two crowns to support one or more false teeth. These false teeth, or “pontics” are used to fill up gaps where you’ve lost one or more of your natural teeth. This fixed prosthetic is a great alternative to removable partial dentures.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Our Columbus dentist exclusively offer implant-supported dentures at our office. These dentures snap onto a series of 4-6 dental implants and are held tightly in place to restore your smile, and ensure your teeth will never shift or move.

If you have a cavity or decayed tooth, it can be restored back to its normal shape and function with an onlay. As opposed to a dental fillings, onlays cover more surface area (one or more cusps of the tooth), so they are effective in treating large cavities. or when a cusp is damaged or fractured. Onlays also allow more of the tooth's natural structure to be preserved compared to treatment with a dental crown, providing long-lasting strength and health.
