Restorative Dentistry: Examples Of When You Need It

There are times when you will most definitely need restorative dentistry. If you’re thinking to yourself, “I know this! It’s something I’ll need if my oral health requires a repair!” then you’re on the right track, of course. However, are you familiar with just what those repairs might entail and the type of problems that they will be fixing? Or, does the idea of this area of dental care still exist as more of an idea and possibility to you? If you’re interested in considering some examples of moments our Pella, IA team will be able to hop to it and restore the health of your smile, then look no further! We’ve got the details you seek.

When Oral Disease Is Present

If oral disease is present in your smile, then it’s going to be time for restorative care. Generally speaking, this is going to include problems like tooth decay (which we may address with a beautiful dental filling) or infection (which we will address with a root canal treatment and dental crown). Remember that if you don’t take care of these types of concerns with restorative treatments, they will get worse, they will cause more and more damage over time, and complications will continue to become more complex.

When A Tooth Is Damaged

Now, whether or not disease is present, we remind you that you may require restorative dental care when your tooth is seriously damaged. Maybe you have a broken tooth that occurred when you accidentally bit into something hard or experienced a strong impact. When your tooth is cracked, broken, etc., come in for the care you need. We often address damaged teeth with the placement of a beautiful, custom-crafted dental crown that restores structure to your tooth and lets you recover your oral health.

When A Tooth Needs To Go (Or Is Already Gone)

If your tooth is in such bad shape or is so dangerous to surrounding teeth (and something we cannot fix), then it’s going to be best for us to remove that tooth! This is the first step in restoring your not-so-wonderful oral health. Or, perhaps you have already lost a tooth. In either case, bringing your smile health back will mean replacing the tooth that is missing with a replacement of your choosing. Learn more by seeing our team soon.
