Restorative dentistry encompasses a wide variety of dental procedures and is basically the process of repairing areas of decay, replacing outdated restorations, and restoring mouths to their ideal form and function. Some aspects of restorative dentistry are as follows:
Inlays and Onlays
You have a big filling that needs replacement. Do you have to get a full crown? Not necessarily. A more conservative option that lets you keep more of your natural teeth is an inlay and onlay.
Full Mouth Reconstruction
When disease, decay, or damage alter a smile, a patient may feel embarrassed about seeking professional help. James G. Mace DDS welcomes patients with broken-down smiles.
Partial vs. Full Dentures
When you visit James G. Mace DDS in Washington, Missouri, he will evaluate your teeth, gums, and soft tissues, as well as your occlusion, which is how your teeth fit together when you shut your mouth.
