When it comes to your dental health, there are a few things that may cause a concern. First, if you have any pain in your mouth. Second, if you have any noticeable damage. And third, if you have any missing teeth. Carter Yokoyama, DDS is here to help you restore your smile back to complete health at our Kailua-Kona dentist office. Here are a few reasons you should consider restorative dentistry.
You are Experiencing Pain in Your Mouth
One of the top reasons to consider restorative dentistry is if you experience any pain in your mouth. Pain in your teeth can be caused by a number of reasons. It can be caused by an infection in your tooth, a cavity, tooth decay, an exposed tooth root, or even physical damage. Our dentist is here to meet with you to help you figure out the cause of the pain in your mouth. The pain may also be caused by TMJ or grinding your teeth. Once we identify what the problem is, we can give you the necessary treatment to relieve your pain. In most cases, this will involve removing the infection or tooth decay and filling it. Extractions, gum grafts, or simply wearing a night guard or mouth guard may also be your treatment. Our dentist will provide you with the necessary restorative dentistry treatment to help you feel better.
Your Teeth Have Damage
If your teeth are damaged, this is a good reason to visit your dentist to restore your teeth. Any cracks, chips or broken teeth you have can easily be fixed with restorative dentistry. We can use inlays, onlays, dental crowns or even dental bonding to help your teeth look and feel great once again. One of the best parts about restorative dentistry is that it helps your teeth become stronger and healthier as well as more beautiful. You can leave our dentist office with beautiful teeth that function like they once used to.
You are Missing Some Teeth
The last reason that you should consider restorative dentistry in Kailua-Kona is if you have any missing teeth. Losing your teeth is already a tragedy, but living your life with missing teeth makes it even more difficult. Lost teeth can result in feeling self-conscious about your smile. It can also result in difficult to pronounce certain words and eat certain foods. If your missing teeth are in the middle of other teeth, it can also result in alignment problems. Fortunately, our dentist is here to provide you with dentures, dental implants, dental crowns, and dental bridges to replace your missing teeth.
