Although your preventive dental routine may come as second nature to you by now, it is important to recognize the potential impacts of thoughtless care. Indeed, waking up in the morning and brushing your teeth may come as muscle memory, but does this mean that it is still effective? In cases such as these, it becomes easy for a patient to accidentally slip in terms of their quality of care, and it is during times like this that oral bacteria settle in and begin to wreak havoc. In today’s blog, your Kansas City, MO dentist takes a look at restorative solutions for oral concerns, and how dental crowns can help.
Reinforcing Function and Strength
It goes without saying that dental prevention is essential for a healthy foundation of oral care. After all, your smile is constantly facing the threat of various bacteria, germs, infections, and more. Further, there are not nearly as many natural lines of defense as there are threats, so providing additional care and reinforcement is essential.
Still, there are various opportunities for infection to spread and complications to arise, and as such, it pays to have a restorative dental backup in the event this occurs. But what exactly can expect from restorative care?
You see, restorative dentistry is the process of mitigating damage caused by infection, removing infections, and reinforcing your natural structure’s functional capabilities and strength. Though there are various treatment options for even more situations, none are quite as versatile as dental crowns. Indeed, crowns consist of small caps that are placed over a designated tooth in order to protect it as it heals, thus restoring strength. For more information about this process, give our team a call today.
Protecting Your Neighboring Teeth
In addition to reinforcing your natural tooth’s strength when healing from the infection, a dental crown can help protect your neighboring teeth as well. For instance, a cap may be placed to contain an infection and prevent it from spreading outward toward your other surrounding structures.
By treating the designated area and placing a crown over the tooth, you are able to ensure the health and safety of neighboring structures. If you are interested in learning more about this process, give our team a call today.
Allowing a Tooth to Heal
Finally, a dental crown can also be used to protect a tooth that has been treated. Take, for example, a structure that has become significantly compromised by tooth decay. As the process progresses, the infection will begin to target sensitive roots and cause pain and discomfort. To treat this, we may provide a root canal procedure, in which a crown will be placed after treatment so as to protect it while it heals.
