Addressing Significant Tooth Decay Or Damage

Whether the problem stems from the formation of a cavity or a damaging physical injury, harm to your tooth structure needs to be taken seriously. There are times when conservative treatment options will not be effective at addressing your needs. In these times, more involved care from your Katy, TX dentist’s office is available. We can see to it that you have the appropriate support so that your appearance, health, and bite strength are preserved. If the need arises, we can even help by expertly extracting a problem tooth so that it can be replaced with a durable and lifelike prosthetic appliance.

What Can You Expect From Treatment For An Advanced Problem?

Before we proceed to recommend a specific treatment, a close review of your tooth will take place. Through this review, we can determine what kind of support you need. At times when there is significant structural harm or evidence of infection, a more advanced restorative treatment approach is planned. Through this work, we can see to it that your smile is preserved, and we can also take the necessary steps to provide quality bite support. We can even make sure that an infection, if already present, is dealt with before it can spread further.

Fully Treating A Tooth That Is Infected

Your treatment for an infected tooth will address both the trouble within the tooth structure and its vulnerable state after this work is completed. We can assess just how much work needs to go into removing infected and damaged enamel and other portions of your tooth. After this is done, a restoration will need to be placed to keep the remaining structure safe from harm. A dental crown can provide that support and also offer more stability to let you bite and chew with less difficulty.

When A Tooth Cannot Be Saved

Tooth extractions take care of your overall oral health and smile when you have a tooth that cannot be saved. By safely removing yours at our office, we can prevent complications and make sure the care is successful, and we can make sure you heal properly before moving forward with plans to provide a replacement. Implant dentistry makes it possible to permanently secure a prosthetic so that it offers support for your bite, neighboring teeth, and even your jawbone health.
