You Never Know When You Will Need a Restorative Dentist in Los Angeles

Posted on: August 15, 2016

Restorative Dentist in Los AngelesAs a restorative dentist in Los Angeles , we can correct any damage that has been done to your teeth.  We treat patients of all ages and find that most people never consider that their teeth could become cracked or chipped or what they would do if this happens.  For those conscious about oral health, it makes sense that a potential injury is not top of mind. While we understand, it is important to have a solution if an accident ever does occur.  To put this in perspective, according to the National Fall Safety Institute, over 9 million people visit the emergency room every year due to an injury sustained from a slip and fall accident.  These are men and women of all ages that had an accident at work, at home, at the baseball game, grocery store, etc.  There is no real way to prevent this type of accident because it is so entirely unexpected.  If you find yourself in a situation like this where you have gotten hurt, and your teeth are the main victim – give us a call.

If you have any physical injuries, you should visit the ER or your doctor to attend to them.  However, if you have damaged a tooth, call us.  Many people mistakenly visit the ER with a cracked or chipped tooth, thinking that they can help.  Unfortunately, visiting the ER will only address a portion of the symptoms.  They are not trained in dentistry and cannot determine what is causing the problem or how to correct it.  They can only triage the damage and provide you with medication.  If you visit our dental office first, we can do this and more, saving you time and money along the way.

As a Restorative Dentist in Los Angeles, we work on cracked and chipped teeth on a regular basis.  When you come in we will start by examining your mouth and taking X-rays to determine the extent of the damage.  Next, we will clean the area and discuss your options for a restoration.  We have several and will help you to determine which treatment option works best for your lifestyle, smile goals and budget.  One of the solutions we offer is a dental bonding technique that can be completed at the same time as your initial appointment.  We can also fit you for a dental veneer or dental crown, both of which provide long-lasting, durable, and natural-looking restorations.  If you have lost a tooth, we can try to reattach it, and if this is not possible, we can replace it using a dental bridge or a dental implant.  Both are attractive alternatives to wearing dentures.

Simultaneously, as a restorative dentist in Los Angeles, we often treat people that have toothaches due to an infection.  In this situation, we may complete a root canal to remove the infected area.  Afterwards, we can place a dental crown around the tooth to restore it and to prevent further damage.  Regardless of what oral health challenges you are facing, we can help.
