Why Restorations Are Necessary
Dental restorations are necessary for protecting and re-establishing proper oral function after injury or decay. These restorations can restore the look and function of a damaged tooth, and protect it from further deterioration. Unlike other mineralized structures, a tooth cannot regenerate tissue to heal itself if cracked or chipped. While a broken bone may heal over time, a chipped tooth will not.
Despite teeth being the hardest structure in the human body, once a tooth is damaged it will only continue to deteriorate. As the enamel wears away or is exposed through a break or crack, the innermost structures become exposed to oral debris and bacteria.
Unfortunately, when the root of a tooth is exposed, it can become necessary to intervene with root canal therapy. A root canal can stop the advancement of a painful infection or abscess. If a tooth is beyond what a root canal can salvage, the tooth may need to be extracted and tooth replacement options will become necessary.
If treated in time, a diseased or damaged tooth can be easily saved with a root canal and crown treatment.
