Once you lose your baby teeth as a child, your permanent teeth come into your smile. Aside from your wisdom teeth that may come in at a later age, your adult teeth are set. No new ones will come in after them. If one gets broken or gets a cavity, it will not heal on its own. While your bones can heal and your skin can grow back in most situations, a damaged tooth will stay damaged unless your dentist helps. Your dentist can help to restore a tooth that has been compromised. Restoring a tooth is beneficial to your whole smile’s health. If you have a problematic tooth, the team at E-Care Dentistry in Olathe, Kansas can help you take care of it.
#1: Your Smile Depends On It
Having just one tooth that is in pain or is unable to bite or chew can throw off the whole balance of your smile. You may end up overcompensating and chewing on one side of the mouth (this can put wear and tear on your other teeth). A broken tooth in the front of the smile can affect your appearance and sometimes your abilities to speak. Restoring a damaged tooth can help your overall smile’s form and function.
#2: To Protect The Tooth
Restoring a tooth can help protect it against tooth loss. If a tooth has a cavity, a filling can disinfect it and restore the damaged enamel. This can keep it strong against further bacterial infection. If a tooth is left damaged, it is left vulnerable to infection that can be dangerous to your health. At the most severe stage of an infection, an extraction of the tooth may become necessary.
#3: For Your Health’s Sake
Your smile is the gateway to your overall health. If there is a problem with your smile, it can affect the way you eat, which can affect how you feel overall. Restoring a tooth can help you keep your mouth and your entire body healthy.
