Although it is not a recognized dental specialty by the American Dental Association, Restorative Dentistry is widely recognized in the industry as defined by Wikipedia as the “study, diagnosis and management of diseases of the teeth and their supporting structures …” And as part of a comprehensive oral health program, it also includes the rehabilitation or restoration of these structures to a functional and aesthetic state.
Ideally a commitment to preventive measures like regular dental exams and teeth cleanings will prevent the need for any type of restorative dental work. However, if your circumstances require restorative dentistry in Raleigh or the surrounding area, then Gover and Gover Dentistry is one of the leading dental practices you should consider.
We have been performing general, cosmetic and restorative dental procedures in Raleigh since 1999. Although we prefer to save as many of your natural teeth as possible, there are times when the best treatment will involve repair or replacement of damaged or missing teeth. Depending on your diagnosis, we can perform basic procedures like repairing decayed teeth with fillings all the way to tooth replacement with dental implants fitted with crowns.
In fact replacing missing teeth is a critical part of the restorative process for overall dental health. If not filled with replacement teeth, these empty gaps may allow plaque to build up on nearby teeth in hard to reach areas that otherwise would be unaffected. Also changes in the structure of the jaw and additional stress on remaining teeth can be a negative side-effect of having missing teeth.
