Restorative dentistry is the branch of dentistry that deals with restoring diseased, broken or abnormal teeth to their normal function and appearance. Southern Pines family dentist Dr. Moubry offers a variety of restorative options including crowns, fillings, bridges, implants and dentures.
Restorative dentistry is important to maintain good oral health. When a tooth is missing, stress placed on the gums and surrounding teeth can cause multiple problems including gum disease. Remaining teeth might shift into the open space and cause crowding problems.
We offer a variety of treatment options to restore missing teeth, which also preserves your gum tissue and bone. With our conservative treatment approach, we can address the missing tooth or teeth with dental implants, which prevents us from having to alter neighboring healthy teeth, which is the case when doing dental bridges. We can refer you to a periodontist or oral surgeon to have your implant placed. Once it integrates into the bone, we can restore the implant by placing a porcelain crown on it.
We also restore existing dental implants.
