With so many restorative dentistry options available, how do you know which option is right for you? The first thing you need to do is find a restorative dentist you can trust, such as Dr. Hugh B. Rosenblatt, DMD, PA. Next, get to know the options and what conditions they can treat to get your smile back.
Dental Health Conditions and Matching Restorative Options
Cracked Tooth – Whether you crack is the result of your actions or someone else’s, it is still a big deal. A cracked tooth can threaten the life of your tooth regardless of whether it is severe or not. The only thing that the severity dictates is what restorative option will be used to save the life of your tooth. For less severe cracks, the fix is obviously going to be less invasive. Some common treatments for a cracked tooth are:
Broken Tooth – A break in your tooth is the next level of trauma. A break will expose the inside of your tooth to the debris and bacteria in your mouth, and that is not good for you or your health. There are bacteria in your mouth at all times, no matter how well you clean your teeth, or how thorough your dental hygiene routine is. The last thing you want is for that bacteria to get inside your tooth. That will lead to big problems that could very well cost you the life of your tooth, and may even damage the bone structure of your jaw.
Missing Tooth – A tooth lost is devastating for the function of your mouth and the look of your smile. A missing tooth can happen for a number of reasons. You could have your tooth dislodged during a sporting activity or some other activity. You could have a cracked tooth that sustains more damage and now cannot be saved. You could also suffer from a break that is too dramatic for your tooth to be saved. Whatever the case, Dr. Rosenblatt has some options to replace it.
Infected Tooth – This might be the most dangerous condition of all on this list. Any infection is a big deal. If it is not brought under control, you run the risk of the infection getting into your blood, and then the least of your worries will be your tooth. An infection in your tooth can also cause your nerve to die and might result in an abscess. This is a pocket of infection in your gums. It is critical that you have the abscess drained before it does any more damage to your mouth.
Here is how Dr. Rosenblatt can take care of your infected tooth:
