Good oral health is important for the entire body. The mouth is the beginning of the digestive tract and as such when things go wrong at the beginning of the process, the entire process can be affected. An appealing smile makes a person attractive, however, when it comes to your oral health, your smile is only part of the equation. At Frederick Dental, we provide excpetional dental care services to help patients achieve their top oral health. We offer restorative dentistry to help you get there.
When you have teeth missing, several other problems can arise. A domino effect slowly gets put into motion when the space created by the missing teeth is not taken care of. Just one missing tooth can give rise to many problems over time. People are more apt to address problems in the front of their mouths because missing teeth affect their smile. Back teeth are not as visible. Many people feel no urgent need to address the void left by missing molars.
Teeth on either side of the space begin to shift to fill in the void. This gets them out of alignment. Opposing teeth, those on the top or bottom also shift moving downward or upward incrementally over time. This movement can expose part of the root of the tooth leaving it more vulnerable to decay. Food traps can form as a result of the misalignment, making teeth more susceptible to gingivitis and decay. All these things can be avoided with restorative dentistry.
Complete Dental Restorations
Restorative dentistry provides appliances or devices to fill in the empty spaces preventing the shifting of neighboring teeth. Dentures and implants keep neighboring teeth straight and in place. The chewing surface is restored making it easy for you to eat healthy nutritious foods and chew them sufficiently for the body to make the best use of the nutrients.
It is a wonderful thing to have a nice smile. It is an even better thing to have your best oral health back again. Boost your self-esteem and confidence by getting your mouth in top shape with dental restorations.
