Are you curious about why we recommend you schedule restorative care right away when you need something like a filling or a crown? You know that we suggest you keep up with your dental care, so your smile remains beautiful and healthy. However, you may not have a strong handle on the particular details regarding how extensively a restoration can improve, help, and protect your smile. Allow us to provide you with some impressive achievements you can expect from a restoration.
#1: They Fix Structural Damage
Restorations fix damage that is physical in nature, which can include a cavity (you have lost tooth tissue), a broken tooth, a cracked tooth, or even a missing tooth. The goal is always to have a mouth full of complete, healthy teeth, so you enjoy successful function.
#2: They May Include Disease Removal
Restorative care is not only to put your tooth back together or restore its structure – the goal is also to remove existing disease (which is typically progressive in nature). For instance, if your tooth is suffering from tooth decay, our filling includes getting rid of the decay. Or, if you are dealing with an infection, we will clear away the infection and bacteria with root canal therapy, so your tooth is healthy again.
#3: They Help You Avoid Infection
In some instances, choosing restorative care can help you avoid additional damage and concerns, such as infection. Fortunately, this means that if you need a restoration and you schedule your visit, you can expect protection against further problems. For example, if you have a cavity and show up for a filling, you can avoid a broken tooth or infection. Simple.
