Your Filling And Your Bite Function

The formation of a cavity is not something to take lightly, and treatment is not something to postpone. By putting off restorative dental work, you leave yourself vulnerable to worsening damage to your enamel, something that can eventually lead to oral health complications. The good news is that prompt care for dental decay will limit harm to your tooth structure and make treatment easier. A dental filling that matches your tooth can be applied to the area where your cavity had to be cared for. At our Virginia Beach, VA dentist’s office, we are able to provide treatments with fillings that are lifelike and still secure enough to preserve your natural bite function.

Will Restorative Treatment Affect Your Bite Function?

Restorative dental work can fully address concerns patients bring up about oral health care. The treatment you receive will stop a cavity from doing any more harm to your enamel. To address the permanent damage that occurred before treatment, a dental filling or dental crown will be used. These restorations are strong enough to support your tooth so that you can still bite and chew naturally, and they are also able to restore your smile by imitating your healthy enamel.

Using A Lifelike Filling To Restore Your Oral Health

A lifelike dental filling will adhere to your enamel and match its appearance. Because of this, it will be able to restore your oral health while not causing unwelcome changes to your appearance. A composite resin material is used for fillings; the material is applied to the area where decayed tissues were removed. The substance hardens upon that application. This procedure is something we can complete in just one appointment, making it a convenient means of restoring your smile and oral health.

What Else Should You Know About Restorative Dentistry?

There are different approaches that are taken to treating teeth affected by dental decay. The reason for this is that cavities cause progressive harm over time. The state of your tooth at the time you arrive for treatment will dictate how Dr. Folck proceeds with care. In cases where teeth are more severely affected by cavity issues, care can include root canal therapy as well as the placement of dental crowns.
