What is Functional Dentistry?


Functional Dentistry is defined as the reconstruction of teeth to emulate their natural biomechanical and esthetic form and function. With Functional dentistry, only the damage and decayed part of the tooth is removed and the final restoration is bonded to the remaining healthy natural tooth structure.

These restorations include stress-reduced direct composite restorations and porcelain/ composite inlays and onlays that restore the biomechanics of broken and damaged teeth.

When restoring damaged, broken, and decayed teeth, the goal is to return the tooth to its original strength, function, and esthetics. Functional dentistry accomplishes all of this in a conservative, strong and attractive approach.
