Reasons to Make an Appointment with a Restorative Dentist

If you’re suffering from dental cavities, tooth loss, or similar problems, then you could benefit from seeing a dentist that offers restorative treatments. The following are just a few of the reasons to schedule an appointment with a restorative dentist:

For Dentures

Used to replace missing teeth and their surrounding tissues, dentures are removable restorations that can provide individuals with an enhanced smile along with improved dental function. If you are missing several teeth, then you might feel self-conscious about your appearance and have trouble with drinking, biting, chewing, and speaking. For these reasons, you could benefit from visiting a restorative dentist about treatment with dentures.

For Dental Crowns

When teeth are severely damaged or decayed, dentists frequently use dental crowns, which fit over teeth like caps, to restore their function. First, the damaged or decayed part of the tooth is removed. Then, the dentist takes an impression of the patient’s teeth, which is used to create a permanent crown. The tooth is then fit with a temporary crown until the permanent one is ready. Crowns are also used to restore teeth following root canal therapy and to stabilize teeth after the removal of large fillings.

For Dental Implants

A dental implant is designed to replace the root of a missing tooth, and for some patients, these restorations offer a better solution for missing teeth than dentures. Also, some individuals can benefit from having their dentures permanently fixed to a set of 4 dental implants on the upper or lower jaw. For people who are good candidates for the procedure, dental implants can provide a stable and permanent solution for their lost teeth. Once the implant integrates with the jawbone, a permanent dental crown is attached to replace the missing tooth and fill the gap in the patient’s smile.
