Restorative dentistry is the study, diagnosis and integrated management of diseases of the teeth / missing teeth and their supporting structures and the rehabilitation of the dentition to functional and aesthetic requirements of the individual.
The goal is to preserve natural teeth as much as possible . Replacing missing teeth with a dental implant, bridge, full or partial denture helps promote dental health as well. Filling in empty spaces in the mouth can help prevent cavities in the remaining teeth because odd-shaped gaps are vulnerable spots for plaque-causing bacteria to build up. Missing teeth also put extra stress on your remaining natural teeth because you don’t have as much surface area to chew with.
