You get up to get ready for work. You head to the bathroom to brush your teeth. As you look in the mirror, you can’t help smiling. You like what you see.
Ever since you took advantage of the restorative dentistry at Parker Nickolas Read Dental, your teeth have looked great. Plus, you are able to eat all your favorite food without pain or problems.
It’s a good thing you contacted them to make an appointment by calling (713) 932-0441.
That scenario could become your reality if you visit our office to repair your damaged smile. Here are four ways our restorative service could help you.
Stop the Toothache
You may notice that your teeth feel a little sensitive one day. Then, you might notice some pain after eating. A few days later that pain you hoped would just go away has turned into a toothache that can’t be ignored.
This calls for a root canal treatment. If that makes you a little anxious, you certainly aren’t alone. In the past, this wasn’t always a pleasant procedure. Fortunately for you, modern dental care has come a long way in regard to patient comfort.
With our advanced techniques and dental sedation options, you can remain pain-free while we remove the infected tissue from your teeth. Then, we will fill your tooth and cap it to restore your ability to eat without pain and smile without worry.
Fix Your Broken Tooth
Accidents happen. You could be playing catch in the backyard and take your eye off the ball just for a second. You could bite down on something that was harder than you expected. You might even trip or walk into something if you get distracted.
Don’t wait to call us if something like this happens to you. We used CAD/CAM technology to design and create dental crowns. With the CEREC system, you can have a permanent crown in a matter of a few hours.
The old way of getting crowns meant sending an order to a lab and wearing a temporary crown until your real crown was ready. That also meant multiple dental appointments. With our approach, you can get your permanent crown with just one visit to our office.
Replace What’s Missing
Millions of people lose teeth every year. You may not realize, but a single missing tooth can lead to multiple problems down the road.
When you have a complete smile, your teeth work together to keep each other in the same place in your mouth. Over time, that can allow your remaining teeth to shift. That can affect the alignment of your bite, which can make it difficult to eat and may increase your risk of tooth decay and gum infections.
Tooth loss also can contribute to bone loss in your jaw. That could cause you to lose more teeth over time. You can replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or a complete arch of teeth by getting dental implants. The implants also act as replacement roots, which can sustain the health of your jaw.
Keep It Simple
Tooth decay is the most common dental issue that people face. When left untreated, it can cause cavities, tooth infections, and tooth loss. Your best bet is to get a tooth filling at the first signs of decay. Our composite fillings provide protection against future decay and they restore the function and the appearance of your tooth.
