Has it been months, even years, since you were actually able to sit down with your loved ones and enjoy a meal, without worrying about how it would make your smile feel? When you are suffering from tooth sensitivity, much less outright dental pain, once enjoyable daily activities, like eating, can begin to lose their luster. Eventually, if you are not careful, they can become difficult or downright painful. Fortunately, restorative dentistry exists to help eliminate discomfort and restore overall oral health. So if you do find yourself struggling with pesky dental pain, don’t keep suffering in silence, or avoiding your favorite meals. Talk to your restorative dentist about how a solution like a filling, crown or other treatment, could help you!
Restorative Treatment Can Eliminate Discomfort
The teeth are naturally incredibly strong. In fact, tooth enamel is the strongest substance in the human body. That said, they unfortunately lack the ability to repair themselves when they have become damaged. This means that once the smile has developed a cavity, or other issue, restorative treatment is the best, and often only way to improve comfort and to prevent worsening issues.
In the case of a dental cavity, fillings are most often recommended, to help seal the tooth against further acidic erosion. This filling also serves to help prevent infection, which can lead to the need for far more extensive restorative treatment.
When teeth are chipped or cracked, dental crowns are most commonly recommended, because they provide a durable solution for sealing the tooth and preventing additional wear.
