Restorative dentistry

Restorative Dentistry is the study, diagnosis and integrated management of diseases of the teeth and their supporting structures.

It focuses on the rehabilitation of the dentition to the functional and aesthetic requirements of the individual.

Restorative dentistry encompasses the specialties of:

  • Periodontics (disease of the gums)
  • Endodontics (root canal therapy and dental trauma)
  • Prosthodontics (occlusion, crowns, bridges and dentures)
  • Implant dentistry

Its foundation is based upon their interaction in cases requiring multifaceted care.
