Why would I need restorative dental treatment?You may need restorative dental treatment if you have cavities, have injured or fractured your tooth, have had root canal treatment, have had a tooth knocked out or extracted or your tooth has been weakened by a large filling. The type of restoration you have usually depends on the extent of the damage to the tooth and the location of the tooth.
