Restorative Dentistry You Can Trust in Vancouver
Not all procedures that improve your smile are simply cosmetic in nature. Procedures like implants, crowns, and root canals are all necessary to maintaining good oral health, and not receiving such care can actually cause incredible harm to your body. Call on Vancouver Emergency Dentist if you need restorative dental help.
The Purpose of Restorative Dentistry
Having missing or infected teeth can greatly damage the health of your entire mouth. Without all the proper teeth in place, your other teeth will shift to fill any gaps and your jaw strength will begin to deteriorate. If your tooth is infected, you run the risk of not only losing that tooth but of the infection spreading to other parts of your mouth and entire body. Dental implants, root canals and crowns help you maintain a healthy mouth.
Dental implants are literally implanted into your mouth with the use of screws. This is a complex procedure, but you don’t have to worry. The experts at Vancouver Emergency Dentist will restore your smile with care. Once placed, the implants should last as long as your other healthy teeth and will actually strengthen the bone in your jaw.
Root Canals and Crowns
When a tooth succumbs to decay and gets infected, a root canal is often the only solution. A qualified dentist or endodontist will remove the infected tooth’s nerve and pulp, cleaning the infection from the inside of the tooth and then sealing the decayed tooth, often with a crown. If an infected tooth is not treated, the infection will spread to the tissue surrounding the tooth and could end up in your bloodstream.
Gum Disease Treatment
If you’ve neglected preventative care, periodontal disease is ultimately inevitable. Gum disease can be as mild as gum inflammation to as severe as infected gum tissue and tooth loss. The early stage of gum disease is often referred to as gingivitis, and it is reversible if you visit a dentist and properly care for your teeth and gums at home; however, if you do not treat gingivitis, it evolves into periodontitis, which can only be treated by a dentist and may not be completely reversed.
