Anyone who is living with a broken-down smile, tooth pain, mouth discomfort, or other oral health complications can attest that their lives are negatively impacted by these problems. If there is one thing they might wish for at this time of year, it’s comfort – freedom from the discomfort of eating gingerly or smiling sparingly. The right restorative dentistry procedures correct all your dental problems so you can be thankful for your good oral health, and your Red Bank dentist.
Here are just some of the reasons to be thankful for restorative dentistry:
1. You will have a complete smile.
Dental restorations fill in the holes in your smile. If you are missing teeth, corrections like dental implants or porcelain crowns and dental bridges permanently replace those absent teeth. You will be able to eat and speak confidently without worrying about the whether your teeth will stay put. Modern dentures too are a viable and reliable option for completing your smile.
2. Your teeth will function properly.
Your teeth have so many important jobs to do, biting and chewing food, helping you speak, and allowing your face and jawbone to maintain its shape. If your oral health is compromised by cracked, chipped, or loose teeth in any way, they won’t be able to function properly. Dental restorations ensure that your smile is strong and durable.
3. You will look happier.
If you’re embarrassed by your teeth, there is a good chance you’re not smiling very much. And when you’re not smiling, you look serious, sad, even angry. Your true feelings and personality don’t shine through because you’re so self-conscious. Smile away when your dental restorations have been completed – a complete, healthy smile is something to smile about.
4. You will be free from pain.
Tooth pain can, at times, be unendurable. The good news: If you get those dental restorations your oral health badly needs the discomfort will disappear. The tooth pain you have could be gum disease, an infection, decay, or TMJ complications. Your Red Bank dentist is the only person who can identify the source of your pain and address it appropriately to give you relief and a healthy smile.
5. You will be more confident.
If you’ve long been living with a broken-down smile, there is a good chance your self-esteem has taken a hit because of it. When you undergo much-needed dental restorations, you will immediately be more confident about how you look and feel. No more worrying about whether a tooth will come loose during a meal or whether people are distracted by that missing tooth. A restored smile creates a complete you.
6. Your smile will last for a long time.
Dental restorations, done well, can last for decades, sometimes even a lifetime. Dental implants, for instance, are a permanent tooth replacement solution that fills in the hole in your smile, while also taking the place of a missing tooth root.
Whatever oral health problem you’re suffering from, there is a dental restoration to fix it. Schedule your appointment with Dr. Carole Sherrod Jewell or Dr. Pauline Robinson at Red Bank Dentistry in Red Bank, New Jersey, to get on the road to a new smile – your healthy teeth will thank you for it.
