Reassuring Information About Cavity Treatment

It can be hard to hear that you need cavity treatment. After all, restorative dental work is hardly something to look forward to! With that said, the problem is one that our Ankeny, IA dentist’s office can address without negatively changing your smile. The restorations we use to protect teeth are made with materials that imitate healthy enamel. As a result, we can provide treatment that fully resolves your oral health troubles and preserves your bite function, but also takes care to preserve your smile. Remember that going without regular dental exams can lead to the formation of several cavities while also making you more likely to experience complications that demand more involved services.

We Can Restore Your Tooth Without Changing Your Smile

There are several priorities during cavity treatment. We need to make sure that you have the right support for your tooth so that a new infection does not form, and so that you can bite and chew without damaging your enamel. We can also take care to provide treatment without changing the way you look. Through our approach to restorative dental care, we can protect your tooth while making sure it still looks natural, and does not stand out when you smile and speak.

We Can Provide Protection That Lets You Continue To Bite And Chew Without Difficulty

The functional support you receive from your restoration will let you keep up with your comfortable bite function. Depending on the size of your cavity, we will provide either a dental filling or a dental crown. We can determine which restoration is right for you after we evaluate you and determine what condition your tooth is in. If we catch decay in time, we can use a dental crown to provide a more conservative treatment. For a larger cavity, we will recommend treatment with a dental crown to provide more reliable protection.

We Can Recognize Decay Before You Experience Pain Or Sensitivity

At every routine dental exam, your dentist will look at your teeth to see if there are any problems that require treatment. If you have no issues with discomfort or sensitivity, is this review really necessary? You should know that we can identify problems with decay before they start to make you uncomfortable. By doing so, we can make sure you are treated before you have to worry about complications affecting the way we approach your care.
