Restorative Dentistry Overview
Whether it is due to injury or decay, there are many who require restorative dentistry treatments. Dr. Wali Hamidy DMD at La Jolla Dental Image in La Jolla, CA provides our patients with a long list of treatments that range from dentures and dental implants to dental crowns and more.
As a preferred dentist in La Jolla, Dr. Hamidy and our team place an emphasis on patient education. Whether we are providing you with preventative treatments, such as your regular cleanings or we are helping you explore options in restorative dentistry, we ensure you understand all of the options and the reasons for any specific suggestion or treatment.
Restorative dentistry is a tremendously important area of our work because it does exactly as its name describes – it restores the function of one or more teeth. Of course, that is a serious oversimplification because the loss of even one adult tooth can actually open the door to many other problems. This is why restorative dentistry is such an important part of your overall oral health and care.
The treatments we provide ensure that you have full function of the tooth or teeth, and therefore the entire mouth. This means you also enjoy the esthetic benefits of the care as well. As the simplest example, we might suggest one or more dental implants to replace missing teeth. Not only does this protect the health of your other teeth, but it also gives you confidence, comfort, and function.
For many patients, their options in restorative dentistry are rarely limited to just a single answer. The full list of treatments we provide includes:
As you can see, a single patient may benefit from one or more of these options, and is likely to be able choose between several to create a workable solution. Because we emphasize patient education, we will discuss the pros and cons of each choice and help you decide which works the best for your needs and budget. Ultimately, we are going to ensure your choice restores function, and leaves you with comfort and confidence.
