Dental health is so important to your overall health and wellbeing. Having a beautiful smile is just the tip of the iceberg. At Timber Springs Dental, we practice restorative dentistry as well as prevention to help you achieve your ideal oral health. It includes the dental procedures that go into restoring your teeth such as:
The Importance of Restoration Dentistry
Some parts of restorative dentistry are obvious. When you have a cavity in your tooth it needs to be filled before it gets larger turning into a more serious issue. If it is already a severe problem, root canal therapy may be indicated, restoring your natural tooth back to a usable condition. If you are missing a tooth you may not feel the need to replace it immediately, especially if it is one that is not so visible when you smile. However, missing teeth provide a set of problems that can have a domino effect. When you lose a tooth the bone and soft tissue in that area begin to shrink. Neighboring teeth slowly begin to shift into the void created by the missing tooth. The opposing tooth also begins to shift as it no longer has its opposite tooth to meet it. Shifting teeth can cause misalignment throwing everything out of kilter. These changes do not happen overnight; it is a slow but steady process.
Restorative dentistry provides interventions which eliminate problems like these. Dental crowns provide strength and stability to teeth protecting the natural tooth from further damage. Bridges provide chewing surface in places where teeth are missing in the back and biting ability for the front. Dentures give you the ability to eat freely and enjoy your food while dental implants save bone and soft tissue loss in areas where teeth are missing. All of these procedures also provide you with aesthetics to improve your smile, boosting your confidence.
