I seem to have a corrupt production database (SQL Server 2008 Standard edition)

When trying to connect to it, get the error:

"SQL Server detected a logical consistency-based I/O error: unable to decrypt page due to missing DEK. It occurred during a read of page (1:0) in database ID 13 at offset 0000000000000000 in file ..."

I can't even run DBCC Checkdb on it without getting an error that it can't connect to it.

I do have a backup from the previous day.

A) Do I have to try and restore from the previous backup (and lose a day of data)? Or Is there a way to try and repair?

B) If I need to restore, what steps to restore to the previous backup? The "restore" menu option for this offline database is grayed out.
