Have you lost one or more teeth at this point in your life? You’re not alone. In fact, more than 35 million Americans are missing all of their teeth in one or both jaws, according to the American College of Prosthodontists.
There are many reasons why people lose their teeth, including gum disease, tooth decay, and injury. Regardless of the reason, there is always a way to address this problem, regardless of your age. This is where restorative dentistry comes in.
Dental trauma is one of the most common reasons for restorative dentistry. It can be caused by a fall, car accident, or other type of accident that results in trauma to mouth and teeth.
Tooth decay is another common reason for restorative dentistry. It occurs when the tooth enamel breaks down, allowing bacteria to enter the tooth and cause damage.
Cleft lip and palate is a birth defect that can cause problems with eating, speaking, and breathing. It can also cause dental problems, which may require restorative dentistry.
Gum disease is an inflammation of the gums that can lead to tooth loss. It is caused by bacteria in plaque, and it can be prevented with proper oral hygiene.
At South Florida Dental Center, we recognize the importance of restoring lost teeth whether for functional or cosmetic reasons. We offer a wide range of restorative dentistry services, from dentures and porcelain veneers to dental crowns.
Aside from missing teeth, restorative dentistry was built to rehabilitate patients’ oral health with complex treatment needs such as those who suffer from dental trauma, advanced tooth decay, or cleft lip and palate.
A lot of patients go to South Florida Dental Center to get a set of dentures to replace multiple missing teeth. Dentures are removable appliances that can be taken out and put back in your mouth as needed. They are usually made of acrylic or porcelain and can be either full or partial dentures.
Patients take advantage of the benefits of dentures which include improved appearance, enhanced chewing function, and increased speaking ability. Dentures also provide support for facial muscles and can help prevent sagging of the face.
If you are looking to replace multiple missing teeth at an affordable price and a less invasive procedure, dentures may be the right solution for you.
You may have heard about veneers by now, one way or another. Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that are bonded to the front surface of your teeth. They can be used to correct a wide range of dental problems, including chipped teeth, stained teeth, and misshapen teeth.
Veneers are also a popular cosmetic dentistry option for patients looking to achieve a Hollywood smile. The best part about veneers is that they can be customized to match the color, shape, and size of your natural teeth.
At South Florida Dental Center, we use the highest quality porcelain veneers to ensure that our patients get the best results possible.
Another popular restorative dentistry devices are dental crowns. Dental crowns are also known as “caps” and are placed over a tooth to restore its shape, size, and strength. They can also be used to improve the appearance of your teeth.
Crowns are usually made from porcelain or ceramic and can be matched to the color of your natural teeth. They are also very durable and can last for many years with proper care.
If you have a tooth that is damaged, decayed, or misshapen, a dental crown may be the right solution for you. We have worked with a lot of patients who have been very happy with the results of their dental crowns.
If you are looking for a more permanent solution to missing teeth, dental implants are one of the best options at present. Dental implants are small titanium posts that are placed in your jawbone to serve as a replacement for your natural teeth.
Dental implants are very strong and durable, and they can last for many years—even a lifetime—with proper care. They also look and feel like your natural teeth, which makes them a great option for patients who want to restore their smile.
At South Florida Dental Center, we have a lot of experience with dental implants and can help you decide if they are the right solution for you. Dental implants are a worthy investment for your smile and your overall oral health.
