What Is Restorative Dentistry?

Restorative dentistry focuses on repairing and restoring damaged or lost teeth to improve oral health and restore function. Dr. Bell and his team at Bell Family Dentistry in Riverbank, CA, provide a full range of restorative treatments to help patients regain their beautiful, healthy smiles. Restorative dentistry can treat issues like tooth decay, cracked teeth, worn enamel, and more using techniques like fillings, crowns, bridges, dental implants, and root canals.

Our Restorative Services

Dental Fillings

Dental fillings are a common restorative treatment used to repair decayed or damaged areas of teeth. Dr. Bell may use tooth-colored composite resin fillings to conserve more of the natural tooth structure. We can replace older amalgam fillings with more modern and aesthetically pleasing resin materials. With proper oral hygiene and regular dental visits in Riverbank, CA, fillings can last many years.

Dentures

Patients missing all or most of their teeth may benefit from complete or partial dentures custom-crafted by Dr. Bell. Dentures replace missing teeth with a removable set of artificial teeth mounted on a gum-colored base. They may take some adjustment but allow patients to eat, speak, and smile with confidence again.

Overdentures

Overdentures are removable dentures that place some artificial teeth over dental implants for added stability and comfort. Dr. Bell may recommend overdentures secured in place by implants to improve retention compared to traditional dentures. The implants provide support to prevent slippage and make overdentures feel more secure.

Implant Placement

Dental implants act as artificial tooth roots surgically placed into the jawbone by Dr. Bell to replace missing teeth. The small titanium posts fuse with the bone during healing to provide a sturdy foundation. After placement, custom crowns, bridges, or dentures can be securely attached to the implant posts.

Implant Restoration

Once implants have successfully osseointegrated with the bone, they’re ready for the restorative phase. Dr. Bell works with trusted dental labs to fabricate lifelike crowns, bridges, or overdentures that precisely fit over the implants. With specialized training and technology, the final restoration looks and functions just like natural teeth.

Root Canal

Root canals remove infected pulp tissue from the inside of a compromised tooth to save it from extraction. Dr. Bell will numb the area with a local anesthetic before gently drilling into the tooth to access and clean out the root canal space. After disinfecting, he seals and fills the interior chamber, before finishing up by placing a durable crown to restore the tooth.

Dental Sealants

Resin-based dental sealants applied by Dr. Bell act as a barrier against decay-causing bacteria. The thin plastic coating flows into the grooves of posterior teeth to protect vulnerable biting surfaces. Sealants allow our Riverbank patients to proactively guard against cavities in high-risk areas.

Sleep Apnea Devices

Sleep apnea appliances from Dr. Bell offer a more comfortable alternative to cumbersome CPAP machines. Custom-made oral devices worn at night keep airways open for better sleep. Consultations determine which mandibular advancement or tongue-retaining device best suits each patient's needs.
