Patients with broken, decayed or infected teeth must have these restored to prevent the progression of dental disease and allow continued function of chewing, speech and smiling.
Restorative dentistry is about returning the dentition to proper form and function. The scope of these treatments include composite fillings, periodontal treatment, root canal therapy, crowns, inlays, onlays and bridges. Dr Rick will be able to advise you of the most suitable treatment for your unique mouth and lifestyle.
TYPICAL TREATMENT JOURNEY
1. Induction (2 hours)
The team will take a full set of diagnostic records so you and Dr Rick can get a clear picture of your unique oral environment. By the end of this appointment, Dr Rick will be able to give you the most complete understanding of your dental situation, allowing for open and honest discussion and tailoring of your treatment plan to achieve your smile goals. You will receive a professional clean to start your dental journey with a hygienic and healthy environment.
2. Restorative treatments
The basis of any restorative treatment is to remove infected or compromised tissue and reconstruct what was lost as accurately as possible. Treatment time, suitability and maintenance requirements will be discussed agreed upon prior to initiating the treatment plan.
