Suffering from Tooth Pain? It’s Time to See the Dentist: Part Two
Posted on April 17th, 2017
Are you concerned that you could be suffering from a dental problem, like a cavity? If so, you’re not alone. Some studies indicate that as many as 90 percent of the adults in America will struggle with dental decay. The good news is that prompt restorative action can help to address most dental issues, including cavities, and often quickly and with minimally invasive treatment. So if you are suffering from tooth pain, don’t delay a dental visit. Restorative treatment could help improve your comfort, soon.
Enjoy Improved Comfort and Confidence Through a Modern Dental Restoration
When you seek treatment promptly, minimally invasive restorative techniques are usually sufficient for protecting any affected teeth and restoring the smile’s overall health.
In the case of cavities, for instance, dentists can usually place tooth fillings in a single office visit. These fillings are designed to improve comfort and prevent further exposure to bacteria that could eventually lead to an infection. Modern fillings offer aesthetic benefits as well, since they are sculpted to look like natural teeth. This is done using a composite resin material that is shaded to match a patient’s teeth, and which bonds tightly with teeth, creating a great protective barrier.
For bigger or more extensive issues, your dentist might recommend a dental crown. Crowns are similar to fillings, in that they are made to seal teeth from exposure to foods and bacteria. Yet crowns are often made of porcelain, which can last even longer than the composite resin used to create modern fillings.
