The Importance of Restoring Your Oral Health
Treat Pain & Discomfort
First and foremost, getting treatment for an oral health issue will help you avoid further pain or discomfort.
Whether your tooth has been damaged by oral trauma, you have a deep cavity, or you have an infected tooth that’s causing a toothache, Dr. Perry is here to help.
With numbing and sedation available, you can get the care you need without further pain or discomfort.
Avoid Further Complications
A minor oral health condition, if left untreated, will always turn into a more serious complication. For example, a small cavity that is not filled in time can grow and cause a tooth infection, and a missing tooth that is not replaced will lead to teeth shifting and bone loss, creating an unhealthy bite.
Treating oral health issues as soon as you notice them will help you prevent further complications. In the long run, this will save you time and money, and ensure that your oral health is protected.
Save Your Tooth
Failing to treat an oral injury, cavity, or other oral issues in time may eventually result in the loss of your tooth. While there are always options to replace a missing tooth, such as a partial denture, dental bridge, or a dental implant, it’s always preferable to save your natural teeth whenever possible. Getting care right away to restore a damaged tooth is the best way to make sure it stays healthy.
What To Expect
If you have a cavity, a dental filling is often the best way to restore your smile and prevent further complications. In the process of filling your tooth, the infected and decayed enamel will be removed. Then, the missing structure will be filled with tooth-colored dental composite that will protect your tooth and restore both its function and aesthetics.
Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy is required to treat infected teeth. If you have an untreated cavity or a damaged tooth, the exterior enamel may be damaged to such an extent that the vulnerable interior “pulp” becomes infected. This can cause extreme pain and discomfort, but root canal therapy will offer relief and restoration.
During root canal therapy, an opening is created in the tooth and the decayed material is removed through this hole. Then, the area is disinfected and filled to prevent further infection, and restoring the tooth’s shape and function.
We offer both lab-made crowns and same-day CEREC crowns at our office. Dental crowns are usually recommended for deep cavities or broken/cracked teeth, and they can also be used to cover up a tooth following root canal therapy.
After your tooth is prepared and any damaged material is removed, your crown will be placed directly over the remaining tooth structure to cover it up and protect it. This restores the aesthetics of your smile and the function of your bite.
We offer both full and partial dentures at Perry Family Dentistry. Partial dentures can be used to replace one or more missing teeth. They are made of a metal and plastic framework, which holds several false teeth in place to restore your smile.
Full dentures, in contrast, are designed to replace an entire arch of missing teeth. They fit directly over your gums, which means that they require any remaining healthy teeth to be extracted before they can be placed. For this reason, we only recommend full dentures if you are already missing most of your teeth, or if most of your teeth are severely damaged.
