After you lose your baby teeth as a kid, your permanent teeth emerge and that’s it. You only get those same teeth for the rest of your life. If a tooth is lost as an adult, another will not grow back in its place. If a tooth is broken or damaged, it will not heal up on its own like other parts of your body. A damaged or decayed tooth should be restored with some form of restorative dentistry to keep your smile healthy. Restoring a tooth will allow it to keep biting, chewing, and being an important part of your smile. If the tooth is lost, replacing it is also important. Your dental team in Fort Worth, Texas can help you restore a tooth if you need it.
Prevent Tooth Loss
Tooth decay is a progressive condition; it will continue to get worse and worse until it is treated. A tooth with a simple cavity may just require a dental filling to disinfect the tooth and patch up the enamel. Your enamel cannot heal on its own, but a composite bonding resin can be used to replicate enamel’s looks and abilities. If a cavity is allowed to get worse and deepen with a tooth, a root canal treatment may be required to disinfect the tooth. A crown may be placed on the tooth after treatment. Allowing decay or damage to progress to severe levels can lead to a serious infection. An infected tooth may necessitate a dental extraction to save the smile.
Keep Smile’s Integrity
Your teeth work together to look good and to give you the abilities to eat and speak. Even just one tooth that is decayed or damaged can affect your entire’s smile’s abilities to function. Restoring a problematic tooth help keeps your smile’s health intact.
