There are times when fully restoring a person’s oral health means responding to problems with several of their teeth. If you are someone who is dealing with multiple cavities, or if you have several issues with dental damage from bruxism, our Katy, TX dentist’s office can work with you to make sure that you have all of the restorative care you require. We can help you understand what condition your smile is in, and what services you require, before moving forward with procedures to address damage or decay. When appropriate, we can even create a full mouth reconstruction plan that takes on all of the active concerns we have about your oral health.
We Can Help You Fully Restore Your Smile
Fully restoring your smile means taking on all active problems with dental decay as well as trouble with physical damage that can affect your oral health. Before we can recommend any treatments, we can perform a thorough evaluation to let you know both what teeth need to be treated, and how involved the necessary procedures will be. For cavities, the appropriate care can range from the placement of dental fillings to root canal therapy and the placement of dental crowns. While superficial dental damage can be addressed with cosmetic services, we may need to use crowns to restore teeth that are more badly hurt.
Determining What Kind Of Cavity Treatments You Require
A cavity will keep growing after it forms, and that can ultimately lead to changes in your treatment. A filling is the most conservative restoration we use when we address decay. A composite resin material that matches your enamel is placed at the site where decayed tissues were removed. After that placement, the substance will harden to provide stability and protection against an infection.
If your tooth shows signs of infection, it will be necessary for us to perform root canal therapy to remove bacteria that are within the structure. After this is done, a crown can provide effective support and coverage to help you bite, chew, smile, and speak in a way that feels comfortable to you.
Maintaining Your Smile After Restorative Work
Whether you need one tooth restored or several treated as part of a full mouth reconstruction, you should feel confident in your bite function and oral health after work is done. Keeping up with good habits after a dental procedure will help you avoid future problems and keep your smile attractive. Make sure that you also stay consistent with dental exams in order to avoid future problems that call for the treatment of several teeth.
