The saying “less is more” is especially true with minimally invasive restorative dentistry. At Dental Health Associates, we use this relatively new approach to preserve as much of the original bone, tissue and tooth as possible while removing the portions that are diseased. Another important piece of minimally invasive restorative dentistry is using modern dental materials that are long-lasting to reduce the need for future repair.
Removing tooth structure during restorative treatment compromises the integrity and strength of the tooth. The more tooth structure that is removed, the greater the chances are of future fracture and other dental complications. Using minimally invasive techniques to detect decay or damage, remove it and repair the tooth is critical to preserving the tooth’s integrity and preventing the need for more complex repair in the future. Modern techniques allow our dentists to provide better and longer-lasting patient care.
Some examples of minimally invasive restorative dentistry procedures include:
Many of these minimally invasive procedures do not require anesthetics. Please discuss the options with your dentist to determine if you are a candidate for minimally invasive procedures. It’s just one more reason that “It Never Hurts to Smile” at Dental Health Associates. Call for an appointment today or request an appointment online at our Sylvania office.
