Special Interest Restorative Dentistry
This is the study, diagnosis and integrated management of diseases of the teeth and their supporting structures and the rehabilitation of the dentition to functional and aesthetic requirements of the individual.
Complex dental cases requiring comprehensive and multi-level oral rehabilitation are usually tackled by a Restorative dentist. Patients who require the skills of a restorative dentist are those whose oral condition has deteriorated to the point at which a comprehensive overhaul is required.
The care provided is multi-disciplined with disease stabilisation and treatment, complex diagnostics and full mouth rehabilitation. It is usual, though not exclusively so, that patients will have their bite altered, facial dimensions changed and aesthetics improved. With such comprehensive treatment provided maintenance and aftercare is essential.
Treatments provided by a Restorative Dentist include:
- Full mouth rehabilitation
- Tooth wear treatment
- Occlusal analysis and adjustment
- Cancer rehabilitation
- Hypodontia treatment
