Is My Dental Problem Really A Serious Issue?

Is a problem that requires restorative dental work truly serious, or can you think of it as an issue you are able to “get around to” when it feels convenient? It might be nice to ignore a problem, but doing so can create several new difficulties that have to be addressed. Your Ankeny, IA dentist can take care to closely examine you before recommending any procedure that affects your tooth structure. When treatment is recommended, you should take the matter seriously. If your tooth is injured or affected by decay, its condition will worsen without the right support, something that can lead to a painful infection, the loss of your tooth, and the onset of new health difficulties!

Why The Recommendation For Dental Work Should Be Taken Seriously

By conveying the need for you to arrange restorative dental work, our practice alerts you to an active issue that can cause difficulties for your smile, dental function, and oral health. Because the condition of an unhealthy tooth will worsen as time passes, you should see the need for care as urgent. A delay can lead to problems such as infection or further physical harm. This can cause you discomfort and create new risks, and it can also lead to the need for more involved care.

Arranging The Appropriate Services To Restore Your Smile

For problems that affect your tooth structure, we can address harm while taking care to preserve your appearance. We can provide dental fillings as well as dental crowns that are effective at matching the appearance of your healthy enamel. With dental fillings, we can carefully restore teeth by covering damaged areas without altering the surrounding structure. A crown will completely surround a tooth above the gum line. This is required in response to damage that requires more support than a filling will require.

We are able to do more than just restore unhealthy teeth. When your smile is incomplete, or when you have teeth that need to be replaced, we can respond by performing prosthetic treatment. Both dental implant-held restorations and dental bridges provide permanent support for prosthetic appliances, which can give you bite support as well as more comfort throughout each day. We can discuss the benefits of these different approaches to help you make an informed choice. Remember that by addressing the matter of tooth loss, you improve your dental health and bite function as well as your smile!
