It’s vital that you know how to handle and take care of things properly. Houses need maintenance; cars need repairs and vice versa. In that way, you can get the most convenience out of these things.

That also helps save you time and money in the long run. After all, even a little fix can prevent significant damage that may cost a lot in the future.

That also applies to your dental health. Most oral problems start small, especially those caused by cavities. Dental problems tend to catch you unaware, and you’ll only notice them once your teeth start to yellow or darken.

If you happen to have a serious dental problem, one of the best ways to deal with them is through restorative dentistry.

What is Restorative Dentistry?

Restorative Dentistry

Restorative dentistry is the functional, biologic, and esthetic assessment and treatment of the teeth, tissues, and temporomandibular joints.

After years of study, researchers revealed that the condition of the patient’s bite (also called occlusion) is an essential factor in identifying how long the teeth will last. Therefore, it is essential to know the quality of the bite to make all dental procedures as precise as possible.

The usual problem affecting dental health is what dentists call disharmony caused by imbalances in the functional bite system.

This disharmony leads to the stimulation of the muscular spasms, causing pain and headaches. It is given that anytime, the biting surfaces of teeth are altered in some ways; thus, the need to be alert in maintaining this delicate bite balance.

That is where the role of restorative dentistry comes to play.

Practical Benefits of Restorative Dentistry

Here are some of the benefits you can get through restorative dentistry treatments.

  1. A healthy smile leads to a healthier body. Experts reveal that what happens to your teeth and gums can have significant effects on your overall well-being. For instance, a tooth infection can infiltrate the bloodstream leading to widespread inflammation. That will make it difficult for you to chew without pain; thus, you would have to refrain from eating healthy, raw vegetables.

Some studies also showed that rotten teeth could cause severe pimple occurrence. That’s why if you notice, popping some pimples on your cheek often creates a sensation in the teeth.

  1. Your confidence will increase because of a better smile. People with unwanted damage to their teeth (such as chips, cracks, and worn edges) tend to smile less often. Of course, they don’t want to reveal an unattractive smile. Imagine this: do you want to openly smile to someone special to you when you have a missing front tooth? That would sound uncomfortable.

That is why it is crucial to correct the damage so you can make your smile look so much better. Eventually, you’ll gain confidence, especially in communicating with others.

Whether it’s to your friends or people new to you, you won’t have restraints in opening your mouth and giving a flashy smile.

  1. You’re giving your teeth long-term protection. Any unnoticed or unattended damage to the teeth can lead to long-term complications. These complications would make it more difficult for you or your dentist to restore your teeth to its original state. For instance, even slight damage to the enamel can cause major harm to your overall dental health.

Let’s say you have a worn spot. That can lead to a chip or break in a tooth. Fortunately, restorative dentistry can fix the damage, making the tooth stronger and more protected. That is not just for a month or two, but in the long run as well.

  1. Expect your quality of life to improve. When you’re uncomfortable chewing because of pain or sensation, then eating becomes annoying and stressful. You’ll surely miss enjoying one of life’s greatest pleasures. Simply being aware that there’s damage on your teeth can make you selective on what to eat. Sometimes, you’ll have to cut on desserts and other tasty cuisines so that you’ll not experience the pain.

But when your teeth are healthy and repaired, you’ll eventually feel less stressed, and experience increased joy. Knowing that you get to enjoy the food you love will lead to a better quality of life.

Here is a thing to consider. Any damage to your smile can lead to worse scenarios. In all circumstances, you still need to use your teeth to eat.

That means a little hairline crack in the enamel can grow more significant to the point that you need to have it removed.

That spells the need to achieve a healthy smile because, again, any minor damage can affect your overall health if left unattended.

What should you do, then, with these common dental problems? Dr. Leor Lindner of Create Dental Harmony offers expert training and real-world experience to apply restorative dentistry that can help with any dental problems.

Some of the services he offers include:

Tooth-colored Fillings

Cavities are generally natural to address, although they can be hard to detect. A person with it may not notice until he/she experiences sudden pain and sensation.

Because of that, Dr. Linder uses the DIAGNOdent system to determine cavities in the earliest stages. He then applies tooth-colored fillings as a form of treatment which blends well with your smile.

Root Canal Therapy

If bacteria penetrate a crack in your enamel, they can create infections leading to complications. That can also cause a toothache and other forms of sensation, leading to weakened enamel. In worst-case scenarios, dental extraction becomes a necessity.

Root canal therapy works by carefully removing the infection to protect the tooth. Today, this treatment is more comfortable and is performed faster, thanks to modern rotary endodontics technology.

Dental Crowns

These are tooth-shaped caps that dentists place to cover a damaged tooth. The good thing about dental crowns? They fit snugly and make you feel like you have a brand-new tooth.

These are also helpful in dealing with large cavities, cracks, chips, and broken teeth. That is because they create a seal to the damage, preventing it from growing or worsening over time.

You can avail of crowns made from porcelain, composite, or even gold, depending on your condition and financial capacity.

Dental Veneers

A lot of people avail of this treatment because of how it both repairs and beautifies teeth. Veneers are merely ultra-thin but durable shells that dentists bond to the front of one’s teeth.

It also acts like dental crowns, sealing a chip or worn spot so they won’t get worse or bigger. As soon as they bond to your teeth, you’ll have a healthier and better-looking smile.
