Restorative dentistry focuses on the repair or replacement of teeth that are decayed, damaged or defective. While some of these procedures are cosmetic, many are considered medically necessary for oral health. Dental problems that are left untreated tend to get worse over time. A condition that started out affecting just one tooth can end up causing problems throughout your mouth. This is why it is so important to seek restorative treatment as soon as possible. At Doctors of Dental Medicine we strongly believe that by taking care of restorative needs as they present themselves, you will be saving your healthy teeth from permanent damage as well!
