Implant & Restoration Dentistry in Colleyville TX
Everyone wants a smile that looks good and helps them feel great about themselves. A beautiful smile is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to oral health, however.
At Azure Dental, we believe that a healthy body begins with a healthy mouth. Research confirms this sentiment.
While we focus on preventative care by helping our patients maintain optimum oral health, we also practice restorative dentistry in order to help patients achieve their best oral health.
What Is Restorative Dentistry?
Restorative dentistry is dentistry that restores your mouth back to ideal working order, including:
- Dentures – To replace all or several of your teeth
- Dental Implants – To replace the root of your tooth
- Implant Restorations – Connecting beautiful, natural-looking crowns and other restorations to complete dental implants
Every restorative treatment we offer at Azure Dental is also done with an eye toward esthetics because we recognize how vital – and valuable! – an attractive smile is. We offer tooth-colored composite resin fillings, porcelain crowns, and more!
Why Dental Restorations Matter
You may think that one missing tooth is not such a bad thing, especially if it is a back tooth and not visible when you smile. You may put off doing something about this situation for a long time.
What you do not realize is that the space created by that lost tooth is causing a slow domino effect to take place in your mouth.
Teeth on either side of the space begin to shift to fill in the space. Even the opposing teeth move out of position up or down depending on whether it is an upper or lower tooth that is missing.
This shifting of teeth causes small gaps between other teeth, creating food traps. The food traps are harder to clean adequately, so plaque can build up and harden into tartar, which, if not removed, will create pockets around the teeth. These pockets lead to gingivitis, and untreated gingivitis leads to periodontal disease, which leads to a host of health problems.
Restorative dentistry helps mitigate this chain reaction.
When you get dentures or implants to fill in the space, these problems are eliminated. The dental prosthetics keep teeth from shifting out of place. They also provide the chewing or biting surface you need to adequately chew your food – necessary for ideal uptake of nutrients.
