Your Experience With Dental Fillings

When a cavity forms on your tooth, your dentist can put an end to it by removing the infected area. Once this is accomplished, your tooth will be in need of support, as your enamel will not be able to repair itself against the damage done by a cavity. Many patients who undergo restorative dental care will receive a dental filling to provide that support. Unlike with a dental crown, a dental filling will not cover the entirety of your tooth. Instead, it will be placed in the space where your cavity was removed. That provided protection is important – without your filling, your tooth can be weakened, and face a greater risk for future issues. (more…)

Why Does Gum Disease Put You At Risk For Tooth Loss?

Gum disease can lead to a recession of your gum line, cause bad breath, and make you more prone to bleeding when you clean your teeth. What you need to know is that your teeth can be jeopardized by an advanced infection, too. As gum disease worsens, it can developed into its advanced form, periodontitis. At this stage, your gum disease can break down the tissues keeping your teeth firmly in place – this is capable of loosening teeth to the point that they fall out, or have to be removed. While the earlier stage of gum disease, gingivitis, can be reversed, periodontitis is something that can only be managed. A Perio Tray from your dentist can help you target gingivitis during your daily oral care routine. (more…)

What To Expect From The Creating And Placing Of Your Crown

The placing of a dental crown on your tooth will allow you to recover from problems like tooth injuries and serious cavities.

There are several material types available for use to produce your crown. If you need help for one of your back teeth, a crown made from metal may be the best restoration for you, as these teeth need significant support.
