The dental concerns that most people experience over the various stages of a lifetime are most likely to lie within the three basic fields of preventive, restorative and cosmetic dentistry.
Preventive dentistry is concerned with trying to ward off an issue before it can arise. It includes everything from the fight against cavities to defending against tooth loss and involves the cooperative efforts of both professional and home care. A regimen of brushing and flossing, along with regular dental checkups and professional cleanings, is at the essence of preventive dentistry.
Restorative dentistry deals with treatments and therapies that work to revitalize a tooth that has been impaired. Among the many procedures associated with restoration are fillings, root canals and deep cleanings to manage periodontal disease.
Technological advances have helped to increase the demand for cosmetic dentistry procedures. People are becoming more aware of the many benefits that it can provide, tooth whitening being one of the most popular.
Some procedures that fall under the category of cosmetic dentistry can also be characterized as restorative. Porcelain veneers, implants and crowns are used to repair or replace damaged teeth as well as to give patients a new and improved smile.
