Any time a person experiences cavity trouble, they will need support in the form of restorative dental work. This is necessary because cavities cause irreversible harm, and they will continue to spread until they are dealt with. Patients who come to our St. Louis, MO dentist’s office for regular support can count on Dr. Johnson-G’Sell when a cavity forms, even when more advanced care is required. The care our office provides will also help you avoid this kind of trouble in the future. If you do not have your next general exam booked already, make sure you schedule it in order to receive important preventive care and a timely warning for any trouble that might already be present.
Whenever a cavity forms, your tooth enters a vulnerable state. Decay will keep spreading and doing more harm to your enamel until you have the appropriate restorative dental work. Eventually, you can experience an infection in your tooth, something that will make root canal treatment necessary! The sooner you arrange treatment, the sooner you can stop your cavity’s growth. Because cavities can form without you realizing it, your regular dental exams are important for preventing complications. This is because Dr. Johnson-G’Sell can identify a cavity before it is large enough to demand more than treatment with a dental filling.
The restorative dental work provided to you can protect your tooth without altering the way it looks. Whether you need a dental filling or a dental crown as part of your treatment, we can provide the appropriate care with a restoration that matches the appearance of your healthy enamel. This provides functional support without making you self-conscious about the possibility that people can tell that treatment has taken place. The materials we use to provide lifelike restoration will still be strong enough to support your bite function.
Through regular dental exams and cleanings, patients receive early warnings about cavities that will have to be addressed. Preventive appointments also provide important support to lower your risk for decay in the future. Thanks to the cleanings that take place during your appointments, you have protection against tartar buildup, lowering your risk for decay as well as gum disease. Unless you are told to do something different, you should plan to book visits on a semiannual basis.
Through treatment to resolve your cavity issues, you can enjoy support for your smile without experiencing unwelcome changes to your appearance and dental function. Dr. Johnson-G’Sell is here to support patients who require restorative services, and remember that our office is also here to help with the prevention of dental decay.
