Recognizing The Value Of Implant Support For Prosthetics

How do you make sure you have the best possible support from your dental prosthetic? If you qualify for placement, you can receive permanent support for your restoration from a dental implant. Implants can be used to hold individual replacement teeth, but it is possible to use a sequence of implants or mini implants to hold a larger prosthetic piece, like dentures. Patients who have implant-supported prosthetics can be more comfortable when they bite and chew food, and will not have to worry about issues of instability. Implants even support the health of your jawbone, which can be adversely impacted by tooth loss. (more…)

Ignoring A Cavity Can Lead To Big Oral Health Problems

When it first forms, a cavity will only impact your tooth’s enamel. This is certainly a problem, but in this early stage, your dentist can simply remove the infected area, and provide you with a dental filling, to effectively restore your tooth. However, the treatment procedure will change if your cavity has more time to do damage. Eventually, bacteria will be able to infect the living tissue in your pulp. This can lead to real discomfort, and put you at risk for losing your tooth! The longer you wait to treat tooth decay, the more likely you are to suffer complications that impact your oral health. Eventually, a cavity can do enough damage to cost you your tooth, and you can suffer additional complications. (more…)

Making Arrangements For Your Cavity Treatment

What should you consider when you need to arrange a cavity treatment? One important factor to remember is that your cavity will continue to grow, and continue to attack your tooth, until you have it addressed. The amount of damage ultimately caused by decay will determine what your dentist does in response. You may need to have a root canal performed if you develop endodontic issues. However, if you seek care before your cavity reaches your pulp, you may only require a dental filling. One way to reduce your risk for advanced cavities is to have regular dental checkups scheduled. These routine appointments give your dentist time to catch and treat a problem before it grows serious. (more…)
