Restorative Dentistry Services
Tooth decay and gum disease are the most common chronic dental conditions today, and they lead to the majority of adult tooth loss cases in America. But other issues, like excessive tooth wear and damage, can also lead to increasingly more complex dental problems if not addressed. Restorative dentistry consists of various treatment options designed to rebuild, restore, and refortify compromised tooth structure by addressing your unique condition. For instance, if you have a cavity, then a filling or root canal therapy can restore the tooth by removing and replacing the infected tooth structure. In severe cases, a restoration may not be able to save a tooth. If so, then Dr. Olson can suggest extracting the tooth and replacing it, preferably with a dental implant, to restore balance and harmony to your bite.
