If preventive dentistry doesn’t keep your mouth healthy, restorative dentistry and other treatments can repair your teeth and return your mouth to health.
The most common chronic disease is tooth decay. This impacts as much as 96% of American adults, who experience some tooth decay in their lives. Fortunately, there are many ways to treat tooth decay. The first line treatment for tooth decay is tooth-colored fillings. We offer multiple styles of fillings, including composites and ceramic fillings.
For more advanced decay, we utilize ceramic dental crowns. These not only protect and support your damaged teeth, they can restore the beauty of your smile.
But perhaps the most serious oral health problem is gum disease. Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss among American adults. It’s also one of the causes of chronic bad breath.
Gum disease has also been linked to many serious health conditions. People with gum disease are more likely to develop heart disease, stroke, diabetes, autoimmune disorders, and several forms of cancer. Treating gum disease is critical to maintaining your overall health.
