Do you have plans for the summer?
You could be planning a family vacation. You may have plans to work in your garden or to get more exercise.
While you are working on those things, why not do something for yourself. Restorative dentistry can give you a boost of self-confidence and bring back the function of your teeth as well.
If you’ve been putting off repairing a tooth or replacing missing teeth, then it’s time to take charge of your smile. It’s time to call (561) 877-3802 or contact our dentist office online if you live or near Boynton Beach, FL.
Today is the day to schedule a consultation at the office of Hugh B Rosenblatt, DMD.
Any number of issues could affect the appearance of your smile. Some also can affect how your teeth function.
Fortunately, we can help you find solutions to the problems listed below along with several other oral health issues.
◼ Broken teeth
Millions of people across the country have one or more broken teeth. If you have one, then you know this problem can occur without any notice.
All it takes is one bite into an unexpected olive pit or an unpopped kernel of popcorn. If you miss a ball during a game of catch (or someone else misses near you), you could receive a traumatic injury to your mouth.
A dental crown can be used to repair the tooth for large breaks. For smaller ones, dental bonding or a dental veneer may be enough to bring back your smile.
◼ Cracked teeth
Cracked teeth can develop gradually. They may be the result of grinding your teeth together in your sleep, or they too can occur from a traumatic injury or a bite into something harder than expected.
The solution for this problem will depend on the size and severity of the crack.
Dental bonding or a dental veneer could be the perfect fix for a small crack, while a dental crown would be better for a larger crack. If the crack is deep, then a root canal may be in order. For really deep cracks, you may need to have the tooth removed and replaced.
◼ Decayed teeth
Like the previous problems, the right fix depends on the extent of the damage. The extent of the damage depends on how long the decay breaks down your teeth before you get help.
Small cavities can be fixed with a dental filling. We used a tooth-colored resin for these problems. This allows you to regain the function of your teeth, protect against more infections, and avoid unsightly metal fillings.
As the decay spreads, it may damage so much of your tooth that a dental filling won’t do the job. A dental crown would be used in those instances.
And if the decay gets deep enough to cause toothaches and increase tooth sensitivity, then we can remove the infection with a root canal procedure.
◼ Missing teeth
You may not realize it but the average American will lose a few teeth in his or her lifetime. Some will even lose every tooth in their mouths. Whether you are missing a single tooth or several, Dr. Rosenblatt can help.
A dental crown placed on a dental implant is the closest thing to a regrowing a new tooth that you can get in modern dentistry. A dental bridge is another option for filling in the gap created by one or more missing teeth.
If the gap is three teeth or larger, then you may want to consider an implant-supported dental bridge. Our bridges are made with the same materials used to make our dental crown. That means your bridge will look natural and provide the durability needed to function as well as a real tooth.
The dental implants we mentioned earlier also can be used with dentures. A series of implants can create a secure foundation to hold your dentures in place and allow you to eat practically as well as someone who still has a full set of healthy teeth.
Dr. Rosenblatt has been practicing dentistry for close to 20 years. He’s helped hundreds, if not thousands, of patients bring back the natural appearance of their smiles and the full function of their damaged and lost teeth.
