Sometimes, people only visit our office when their teeth and gums are sore, or they feel dental pain. However, repairing a dental cavity or restoring a painful tooth should be done for other reasons as well. When you restore a tooth, so it functions better, you also make it easier to chew and smile. Therefore, when you have a tooth fixed, make it a point to think about how it will affect the rest of your teeth and gums.
Avoid Future Dental Problems
If you want to avoid future problems with decay and gum disease, you should have teeth repaired to keep your teeth healthy and improve your smile. When teeth are straighter and repaired, they have fewer issues with fractures or discoloration. Your gums are less likely to get infected as well. Straight teeth and healthy gums allow patients to eat about anything they want.
What Happens If You Avoid Repairs?
If you avoid repairing certain teeth, they may shift or move out of alignment. This can affect your bite and smile. Chips can lead to more problems with a tooth and become a distraction visually. If you need to have teeth filled, the decay can spread, which can lead to bite problems, sore gums, and sensitivity. Therefore, it is imperative that you fix any dental anomalies without delay. The healthier you keep your teeth and gums, the healthier you will be overall. Plus, if you don't get rid of plaque and tartar or fix decayed teeth, it can trigger periodontal disease? When this happens, it can cause an infection in another part of your body or can lead to a stroke or heart attack. By following a conscientious program of routine dental care, you can avoid all types of physical and dental problems and complaints.
