Restorative dentistry is a branch of dentistry that involves restoring damaged or missing teeth using various techniques and procedures. These may include dental fillings, crowns, bridges, dentures, dental implants, and root canal therapy.

Dental fillings are used to fill cavities caused by tooth decay. The decayed portion of the tooth is removed, and the resulting space is filled with a material such as composite resin, porcelain, or amalgam.

Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that are placed over a damaged or decayed tooth to restore its shape, size, and strength. Crowns can be made from a variety of materials, including porcelain, metal, or a combination of both.

Dental bridges are used to replace one or more missing teeth. The bridge consists of one or more artificial teeth that are held in place by crowns attached to the adjacent teeth.

Dentures are removable appliances used to replace missing teeth. They can be partial or complete, and are typically made from a combination of acrylic resin and metal.

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are surgically placed into the jawbone. Once the implants have fused with the bone, they can be used to support a dental crown, bridge, or denture.

Root canal therapy is a procedure used to treat a tooth that has become infected or inflamed. The infected or inflamed pulp is removed from the tooth, and the resulting space is filled with a material to prevent further infection.

Restorative dental procedures are typically performed under local anesthesia, which numbs the area around the tooth being treated. While you may feel some discomfort or sensitivity following the procedure, any pain can be managed with over-the-counter pain medications.

The length of a restorative dental procedure depends on the specific procedure being performed. Some procedures, such as dental fillings, can be completed in a single visit, while others, such as dental implants, may require multiple visits over several months.

After a restorative dental procedure, you may experience some discomfort or sensitivity in the affected area. You should avoid eating hard or sticky foods for a few days, and follow any specific instructions provided by your dentist. It's also important to maintain good oral hygiene habits to prevent future dental problems.
