The term “restorative dentistry” is the integrated management of oral health problems and restoration of the mouth to a functional and esthetic state. This includes the dental specialty of prosthodontic dentistry, including fillings, veneers, crowns, bridges, full and partial dentures, and dental implants.
Why Restorative Dentistry Procedures Are Important:
- Filling empty spaces in the mouth helps keep teeth properly aligned.
- Replacing teeth makes it easier to maintain good oral care habits to help prevent plaque build-up and the problems plaque can lead to.

The Benefits of Using Digital Technology.
For the benefit of our patients, we have incorporated advanced digital technology including a CBCT scanner. Dr. Baldwin is one of few Tahoe area dentists with the ability to provide a thorough evaluation in the office. Using high-resolution 3-D images, he can provide more accurate and predictable treatment plans for the restoration of your smile.
CBCT scans offer an in-depth analysis of the anatomy surrounding your teeth, gums, and jaw joints. This information is an important part of planning the placement of dental implants, evaluating the condition of your oral health, and even understanding the underlying cause of a TMJ disorder.
Dental Implants for Missing Teeth
Dr. Baldwin offers several teeth replacement options although he will recommend replacing them with dental implants whenever possible. Dental implants are changing people’s lives as a more natural alternative to dentures and dental bridges. They are the only restoration option that offers permanent, secure results. They improve the appearance of the lower face and prevent further damage to your teeth and gums. You will also be able to enjoy a balanced diet without any restrictions.
Full Mouth Reconstruction
Dr. Baldwin has enhanced both the smiles and daily lives of patients suffering from multiple dental concerns with full mouth reconstruction. A full mouth reconstruction is an individualized plan of treatment designed to replace or repair damaged teeth, soft tissue, or bone. Also known as a full-mouth restoration, this comprehensive process will address all aspects of your oral health.
You may need to consider a full mouth restoration for the following reasons:
- One or more lost teeth due to injury or disease
- Severely worn teeth as a result of a temporomandibular disorder such as TMJ, teeth grinding or other concerns that may require TMJ treatment
- Significant bite problems causing pain and discomfort
