Restorative Dentistry

This deals with the restoration of diseased, injured, or abnormal teeth to normal function.  It deals with all aspects of Endodontics, Periodontics and Prosthodontics which can be defined as follows:

  • Endodontics: This is concerned with the cause, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of diseases and injuries of the tooth root, dental pulp, and surrounding tissue.
  • Periodontics: The diagnosis, treatment and prevention of diseases and disorders (infections and inflammatory) of the gums and other structures around the teeth.
  • Prosthodontics: The replacement of missing teeth and the associated soft and hard tissues by prostheses (crowns, bridges, dentures) which may be fixed or removable, or may be supported and retained by implants.
