They stop dental issues from worsening, protecting you from more advanced damage. They are made of sturdy materials and effectively participate in your teeth’s day-to-day functions.
The decay can result in some changes in the shape of the tooth, causing the filling to fit loosely on the tooth.
Aside from decay, crowns and inlays may also loosen due to tooth cracks or bad habits such as eating too many chewy foods.
Commons Reasons for Restoration Damage
Dental restorations can be damaged due to the following factors.
Although manufactured to be durable, dental restorations have their limitations. Daily chewing, grinding, biting, and other functions weaken them and drive them to a point where they eventually break.
Dental restorations may be long-lasting, but that does not mean that you can abuse them. Avoid using your teeth as tools outside their natural functions, as that can cause damage.
Secondary cavities wear out the tooth until it can no longer support the dental restoration.
Poor dental job
Deciding on the best dentist for you is as important as getting proper dental treatment. Poor dental work can affect the functionality of dental restorations.
First Aid Steps
In case of damaged dental restorations, here’s what you can do:
- Remove all broken parts left in your mouth. This helps avoid breathing them in and causing an infection.
- Take over-the-counter pain relievers or apply clove oil on the affected tooth to reduce pain and sensitivity.
- Go to your Norlane dentist immediately.
