Restorative dentistry is the branch of dentistry concerned with restoring the function of the dentition. It encompasses the recognized dental specialties of endodontics, prosthodontics and periodontics. In the UK restorative dentistry is legally recognized as a specialty under EU directive.

A restorative dentist will specialise in the repair and replacement of teeth. He will deal with diseases such as dental caries, periodontitis and trauma to teeth.
