Dental damage often pops up unexpectedly; then patients panic, and, often, wait to take the next necessary steps in restorative dentistry. Unfortunately, this often compounds the damage, which why our Dallas dentists encourage patients of all ages to reach out to their dentists as soon as dental damage occurs.
Commonly Experienced Types Of Dental Damage
Whether your smile is affected by infection, injury, or genetics, is imperative that you seek prompt treatment for oral health problems, including:
- Cracked or chipped enamel
- Thin dental enamel (which may cause increased dental sensitivity)
- Gum disease
It is not uncommon for these dental problems to occur in combination. As one part of your smile becomes compromised, it can start a domino effect of damage and infection.
When you are considering restorative treatment options, you want to take into account their respective processes, costs, timelines, and longevities. Dental bonding, for example, can be completed in just one day, while porcelain restorations may require multiple appointments.
Even if you aren’t ready to commit to a multi-phased treatment plan, you want to make sure that you get the urgent care you need to stop the damage from becoming more severe. Don’t allow oral health problems to go unaddressed; you only have one set of adult teeth!
