As its name indicates, restorative dentistry helps restore damaged teeth to a normal state of function and appearance. Dr. Pischek performs restorative dental care in two main areas:
- Fillings: For cavities and for damaged teeth brought on by wear-and-tear, fillings are a traditional, proven solution. Fillings help remedy decayed areas of a tooth, overcome the erosion of function, and return affected teeth to a more normal state.
- Implants: Dental implants are often recommended to replace missing teeth and to stabilize dentures. An implant is a replacement for a tooth root and is secured into the patient’s bone. After healing takes place, the implant will be restored with either a crown or a denture attachment. With proper care and maintenance, dental implants are a reliable dental treatment option.
