The single best thing you can do for your teeth is to have them checked and cleaned twice a year! As every medical specialty will tell you, the best chance for corrective action is early detection. This concept is just as important when it comes to dentistry.
A dental restoration or dental filling uses dental restorative materials to restore the function, integrity and morphology of missing tooth structure. The structural loss typically results from caries or external trauma.
Reconstructive dentistry refers to the set of procedures designed to replace missing teeth, repair damaged teeth, correct faulty bites, address jawbone and gum damage, replace worn-out dental work, and, in some cases, treat diseases of the mouth.
