Restorative dentistry ... that is a term that we use for basically restoring teeth that are broken or with cavities and it kind of falls under the umbrella of general dentistry in a sense, but we give you a lot of options. If you have broken teeth, sometimes we have to do crowns. Sometimes we have to do fillings. Sometimes we have to do root canals. You know, there's a lot of things that we can do to restore your mouth. Sometimes we have to, if you're missing teeth, restorative dentistry also involves planning to replace those teeth with either implants or partial dentures or something called bridges.
I can explain to you what all this stuff is when you come in. You know, but basically, the main thing is that there are options and that some options will work better for you than for somebody else and that's why it's important to have that conversation.
