Tooth and Implant Restorations Dentist in Danbury, CT
The goal is to preserve natural teeth as much as possible. Replacing missing teeth with a dental implant, bridge, full or partial denture helps promote dental health as well. Filling in empty spaces in the mouth can help prevent cavities in the remaining teeth because odd-shaped gaps are vulnerable spots for plaque-causing bacteria to build up. Missing teeth also put extra stress on your remaining natural teeth because you don't have as much surface area to chew with.
Restorative dentistry will try to preserve your natural teeth if possible before resorting to full or partial dentures so you won't have to remove and clean the devices regularly. But sometimes full or partial dentures are the better option if you have many missing teeth and you're not a good candidate for dental implants due to other health issues.
Simple Tooth Restorations
Simple tooth restoration is accomplished by utilizing a composite filling. A filling is a way to restore a tooth damaged by decay back to its normal function and shape. When a dentist gives you a filling, he or she first removes the decayed tooth material, cleans the affected area, and then fills the cleaned out the cavity with a filling material.
Dental Implant Restorations
Dental implant problems can occur, but they are uncommon. If there is a problem, your dental implant could become loose, or the crown (tooth portion) could crack or fall off.
