What Is General & Restorative Dentistry?

General/Restorative Dentistry is the integrated management of oral health problems and restoring of the mouth to a functional and esthetic state.



Being the most common type of dental restoration, this term is used for the restoring of lost tooth structure by using composite (tooth colored) material.


Also known as ‘caps,’ is an artificial replacement that preserves the functionality of damaged teeth. This common dental restoration may be used to protect cracked teeth, restore the functionality of a tooth with excessive decay, replace a pre-existing crown, or placed over an implant.



Dental Bridges are used to replace missing teeth. There are several types of fixed dental bridges (cannot be removed), including conventional fixed, cantilever and resin-bonded.


An Onlay is a dental restoration made outside the oral cavity that covers one or more cusp tips and adjoining occlusal surfaces, but not the entire external surface.


An Inlay is an intracoronal dental restoration, made outside the oral cavity to conform to the prepared cavity, which restores some of the occlusal surface of a tooth, but does not restore any cusp tips.

Simple Extractions

Simple Extraction is the process or act of removing a tooth or tooth parts.

Invisalign / MTM Clear Retainers

Invisalign and MTM Clear Retainers are both systems used here in office for orthodontics. These devices are transparent, plastic form of dental braces used to adjust teeth.

Mouth Guards

Mouth Gurards are removable devices that fit over the teeth and are used to help prevent the wearing down of teeth during sleep due to night time grinding and clenching. Sometimes these guards are also worn during the day if the patient’s problems are more serious than just the average teeth grinding problems.
