A Comprehensive Approach To Restoring Your Smile
Posted July 28, 2016 by Wager-Evans Dental
When good oral care has been neglected, problems can accumulate. If you have found yourself in need of several treatments to fully regain a healthy mouth, you can benefit from the variety of work available from your comprehensive dentist. Being able to see your dentist for multiple treatments means being able to plan whatever series of treatments your current condition calls for. After doing what is needed to restore health concerns, your dentist can also provide cosmetic dental work, so that your smile also enjoys a real esthetic boost.
Your restorative needs could include more than just your teeth. If you are dealing with gum disease, your dentist can offer treatment for your periodontal problems. That being said, the health of your teeth are definitely a priority for your dentist. Any untreated cavity left behind will continue to worsen, and can actually spread beyond your tooth by escaping through its root. If you have a tooth that is in pain, it could call for a root canal treatment. Once this is complete, you should talk with your dentist about ongoing checkups, to avoid a return to poor oral health.
With cosmetic dental work, you can finish a sequence of treatments with an attractive smile. Some problems will be taken care of in the course of restorative work. If you have a porcelain crown placed on a damaged tooth, it can have a positive effect on your appearance. Beyond that, your dentist can use different treatments to hide discoloration, misshapen teeth, or any other problems you may have that make you self-conscious.
