Restorative dentistry centers around bringing the mouth back to full functionality. Even if the proper preventative measures have been taken it is possible that restoration still may need to take place. Unavoidable causes, like accidents and genetics, may put a patient at a higher risk of needing restorative procedures at some time in his or her life.
For Dr. Ritter to best treat his patients it is important to know what may be causing the issue at hand. He uses an all-encompassing approach to determine what may be going on. When a patient comes in Dr. Ritter never sees just teeth - he sees the whole person. The patient’s upbringing, experiences, and life choices have all lead up to where his or her teeth are today. Dr. Ritter takes all of this into consideration when treating his patients.
Once Dr. Ritter has an understanding of the situation he aims to educate his patients on the potential risk factors and benefits of the disease process and treatments. This in turn will help them make the most educated decisions possible.
Dr. Ritter takes extra care to identify the root of the problem and educate his patients so they may make the decisions that are best for them. She has implemented a variety of treatments including bone augmentation, gingival recontouring, and even occlusal therapy instead of mouth guards.
