Need for Restorative Dentistry
The following are factors that make it necessary for an individual to undergo Restorative Dentistry.
Erosion of the enamel takes place because of the level of acidity in the food consumed. This is common for people who have soft drinks or alcohol. Smoking or drinking also contributes to dental erosion on a large scale.
Aging is the most common reason for tooth loss, which is natural and cannot be prevented. However, other reasons like trauma, infection and severe tooth decay might also result in the tooth being removed surgically, thereby causing tooth loss.
Results of dental erosion and tooth loss
The major problem of tooth loss is difficulty in the consumption of food. It will be uncomfortable to chew or eat food, even if a few teeth are lost. Sometimes, teeth loss or dental erosion might occur in the front portion of the teeth, thereby producing major aesthetic problems. This will make you look older than you actually are which would be quite embarrassing.
On the other hand, missing teeth can also lead to infections, and even bone loss in the jaw, making the jaw totally weak. While tooth loss is ignored in most cases, the implications of it could be highly dangerous. Hence, it is recommended that proper attention is given and that you undergo a Restorative Dental Treatment as quickly as you can, before they get complicated and make it difficult for both the dentist and you.
