Teeth play a huge role in our day to day life but it’s mostly a passive role; rarely do they ever become an active thought in our minds. That being said, cavities or tooth loss can have a huge impact on your oral and overall health. Tooth loss and cavities can be the end result of a number of issues. These can range from participating in particularly physical activities or decay caused by bacteria in the mouth. Thankfully, these services can restore your oral health.
Go To The Dentist As Quickly As Possible
It’s important to restore your tooth’s root structure as soon as possible. Without a tooth’s root in place, your surrounding jawbone structure will begin to gradually lose density. To prevent this from happening, your dentist can perform certain treatments to keep your jawbone strong and healthy while they prep you for further oral work.
Some Restorative Options
Your dentist can provide you with a few different ways to go about restoring your oral health. These treatments include:
- Tooth Fillings. This procedure helps to restore your tooth’s health and structural integrity, which has been compromised from a cavity. Your dentist does this by smoothing out and cleaning the cavity in question. After this has been done, your dentist then uses a sturdy, artificial material to fill the cavity, restoring your tooth’s structure and health.
- Dental Crown. Using lifelike porcelain, zirconia, or metal, your dentist can mold you a crown that will mimic the top, visible part of your lost tooth. This crown will be supported by a titanium implant post. Titanium is biocompatible and will fuse to your jaw as it heals, replicating the supportive root structure of a natural tooth.
