Restorations Q & A

What are restorations?

When teeth become damaged or fall out, restorations prove the best remedy. Restorations are an assortment of dental treatments that improve oral health and structural function. For example, root canal therapy is a common restoration procedure where the dentist removes bacteria from infected tissue.


What are common types of restorations?

There are several types of restorative treatments the dentist has in their toolkit. The best treatment depends on your unique symptoms and specific condition and differs from person to person. Common types of restorations include:

  • Tooth fillings
  • Crowns and bridges
  • Inlays and onlays
  • Root canal treatment
  • Implants
  • Dentures

Many of these treatments help restore function and prevent disease inside the mouth. Furthermore, restorations improve the quality of your smile and alleviate pain. Speak with your dental care provider to learn which treatment best suits your needs. 


Are restorations painful?

The majority of restorations create little to no pain and discomfort. This varies, however, depending on the treatment your condition requires. Additionally, you may experience light bleeding during the implementation of certain treatments. This is especially true if there is an active oral infection.


Are restorations safe?

When performed correctly, restorations are safe. Certain restorations like crowns become prone to wear-and-tear over time, resulting in chipping when not cared for properly. In severe cases, an infection may occur, or you may experience an allergic reaction to the materials used. It’s best to make your provider aware of any potential allergens before treatment to circumvent this.


How long do restorations take?

The length of a restoration procedure and its associated recovery time largely depend on the condition being treated. 

Simple procedures, such as filling a cavity, take little time and leave you free to carry about your day as you normally would. Moderate restorative procedures like crowns require multiple appointments and severe surgical treatments require longer recovery periods to ensure effective healing.

The dental care provider will provide specific details on how to best support your recent restoration treatment.
