As you learn about restorative care, you quickly discover that the basis of this dental area is to fix problems with your oral health. The goal is always to guide you back to the smile you were enjoying before the problem occurred. Since problems may happen in a variety of ways, we encourage you to think about restorative dentistry based on a simple perspective. By becoming familiar with the basics, you will gain a clearer understanding of how we may restore your smile.
#1: Fix A Tooth
A lot of things can go wrong with your tooth. Fortunately, the restorative care treatments we offer are ready to fix these issues. For instance, if you develop a cavity, we can remove the tooth decay and repair your tooth with a dental filling. If your tooth becomes infected, we will clear the infection with root canal treatment. If you break a tooth, we may help you regain the structure of your tooth with a dental crown.
#2: Remove A Tooth
When every possible option to fix your tooth fails or will simply not provide adequate support, we move on to dental extractions. While you may think to yourself that removing your tooth doesn’t seem restorative in nature – it is simply the first step. By removing a damaged or infected tooth, we protect your surrounding smile from potential injury. Then, we can replace your tooth, which will fully restore your smile. We resort to an extraction if it’s the only way to clear the problem.
#3: Replace A Tooth
About replacing your teeth – this is typically required after extraction or after tooth loss that occurs from other causes, such as periodontal disease. We offer dentures, bridges, or dental implants to complete your grin.
