Your smile says a lot about you. The way your smile looks along with the health of your smile can also say a lot about your overall health as well. Having damaged or missing teeth can cause all kinds of stress. It can leave you feeling self conscious about your appearance but it can also significantly impact your oral health. Damaged teeth can easily affect your adjacent teeth and weaken your bite, putting a significant amount of strain on it which can even lead to more intensive problems. Here in Homestead, Robert Cuckler, DDS, PA can provide you with dental restoration treatments that can help improve your smile’s appearance as well as the health of your mouth overall.
Luckily, when it comes to damaged or missing teeth, there are options available to you as a dental patient. Depending on the damage done, there are several options available that can
help restore your mouth’s appearance as well as restore complete healthy function to your bite as well. First, you will need a preliminary exam, which we can offer you easily here at our dental offices here in Homestead. Once scheduled, you will visit with Robert Cuckler, DDS, PA who will thoroughly examine your mouth and determine your overall oral health baseline. Using this information he will then be able to diagnose your issues and begin to prescribe treatment. For damaged teeth that have been subject to injury or decay, tooth extraction will first be necessary. A local anesthetic will be applied so you do not have to worry about pain or discomfort. The area may need to heal before any dental replacement is put in place, but it all depends on the patient and their situation. If only part of the tooth is affected, then the damaged portion will be removed and a dental crown or cap can be used to restore the tooth’s shape. Bridges can be used to, quite literally, bridge gaps between healthy teeth, often using these teeth as anchors. These appliances can be naked fixed or removable. Dentures are another option and can be partial or made in full. Dental implants are also an option, and though this procedure is more invasive it provides a sturdier and more natural looking smile.
