Dental treatments are procedures your dentist performs to diagnose and treat your dental health. Your dentist exists to help you maintain a clean and healthy mouth. Your dentist will examine your mouth, teeth, gums, and tongue. If they find anything unusual, they will talk with you about treatment.
Dental treatments are broadly classified into three:
Cosmetic dentistry is any dental work intended to improve the appearance of a person’s teeth, gums, bite, or smile. Some cosmetic procedures include teeth whitening, crowns, veneers, and tooth-colored fillings.
Preventative dentistry involves dental cleanings, checkups, and treatments that stop the development of dental problems. These treatments help you prevent cavities, gum disease, enamel wear, and more. Preventative dentistry also helps you avoid the need for invasive treatment.
Dental cleanings remove plaque and tartar from your teeth. Plaque is a sticky film that builds up on your teeth. Your teeth become more vulnerable to decay when plaque builds up on your teeth. Tartar is a hardened form of plaque that, when left untreated, can cause gum disease. Professional dental cleanings remove plaque and tartar from your teeth.
Dental checkups and cleanings help prevent the need for advanced dental treatments. Your dentist can detect dental problems early when they are easier and less expensive to treat. Early detection of decay and gum disease also allows your dentist to offer more conservative treatment options.
Restorative dentistry focuses on restoring teeth that are decayed, chipped, cracked, broken, or worn down. This form of dentistry helps patients keep their natural teeth for a lifetime.
