Do you struggle to chew comfortably, because of heightened dental sensitivity or even discomfort? Are you worried that you could be in need of restorative treatment, to address an issue like a cavity, a chip, or other trauma? It is important to realize that teeth aren’t like other body parts, many of which can help to repair themselves given time. No, the teeth are strong but unable to restore themselves. So, if you notice negative changes in your smile, or suffer an accident involving your smile, it is best to schedule a restorative dental appointment, so your dentist can help determine what, if any, treatment is needed to restore your comfort and to protect your teeth from further wear or even infection.
Don’t Ignore Dental Discomfort
Dental discomfort is a common warning sign of problems like cavities. Even heightened sensitivity can be an early indicator of erosion, like that which causes cavities.
This is why it’s important not to ignore any symptoms or changes to your smile. If you seek treatment, promptly, this is the best way to protect the teeth from further wear, or even infection.
Restorative Dentistry Can Improve Your Comfort and the Smile’s Appearance
Tooth-colored fillings are the fastest and least invasive way to treat cavities, when detected early. Left to progress, however, a simple cavity can lead to the need for root canal therapy or even extraction.
Porcelain crowns are also natural-looking ways to restore the smile, and versatile ones at that. Crowns can be used to protect teeth that have been chipped, cracked or otherwise damaged.
