restoration

 [res″to-ra´shun]
1. induction of a return to a previous state, as a return to health or replacement of a part to normal position.
3. partial or complete reconstruction of a body part.
4. the device used for such a reconstruction.
oral health restoration in the nursing interventions classification, a nursing intervention defined as promotion of healing for a patient who has an oral mucosa or dental lesion.

res·to·ra·tion

(res'tō-rā'shŭn), In dentistry:
1. A prosthetic restoration or appliance; a broad term applied to any inlay, crown, bridge, partial denture, or complete denture that restores or replaces lost tooth structure, teeth, or oral tissues.
2. A plug or stopping; any substance (for example, gold, amalgam) used for restoring the portion missing from a tooth as a result of removing decay in the tooth.
[L. restauro, pp. -atus, to restore, to repair]

Patient discussion about restoration

Q. What are the opportunities to restore gums? My gum on the lower jaw gets less and less, opening the roots of my teeth. Is there any technology or recurement to stop it and, hopefully, draw back?

A. Treatment of receding gums start with treating the cause - improving overall oral hygiene, including brushing habits (too powerful brushing may damage the gums), as well as periodic tooth cleaning at the dentist.

More sever situation may necessitate treatments done by a dentist. Consulting one may be wise.

At present the minimum bond strength for retention of an adhesive to a metal ceramic restoration in the oral environment is not known.
This technology would enable a dentist to complete one or multiple ceramic restorations (inlays, onlays, veneers, and full crowns) chairside in a single appointment.
Despite the successful introduction of ceramic core systems, bondable ceramic restorations in the form of inlays, onlays, veneers and crowns still form a major part of conservative aesthetic prosthodontics.
Marginal and internal fit plays an essential role in clinically evaluating the long term success of a ceramic restoration in the oral cavity.12,13,14 Marginal fit has been shown to be clinically significant to the periodontal health and the development of secondary caries in the marginal area.15 A poor marginal adaptation may lead to marginal discoloration, exposure of the luting agent, dissolution of the cement, more gingival sulcular fluid flow, micro leakage, plaque accumulation, secondary decay, and eventually to bone loss and periodontal disease.16
The CEREC system was the first commercially available CAD CAM system developed for the rapid chair side design and fabrication of ceramic restorations.
The physical and mechanical properties of resin cements may be affected by the thickness and microstructure of ceramic restorations. It is important to emphasize that light-cured resin cements should receive an adequate energy density to reach good polymerization and mechanical properties.
(9,10,29) Due to application of the modern way of manufacturing ceramic restorations, quantitative analysis is extremely necessary to assess the purpose of new materials.
Today, many framework materials for FDPs are fabricated using CAD/CAM technology, such as zirconia, high-resistance polymers (polyether ether ketone), and hybrid ceramic restorations, which use mechanical properties and biocompatibility to provide sufficient mechanical resistance to chemical attacks and to determine clinical success (3-6).
As the patient relaxes in the dental chair, computer-assisted design (CAD) tools and a milling machine then go to work in creating custom-made ceramic restorations.
Both dentist and ceramist should expect that it could take several attempts to fabricate matching natural looking anterior ceramic restorations.
This particle has been added in metal supported ceramic restorations to ensure that the ceramic can be successfully baked onto the metal.
