When you leave dental problems untreated, you increase your risk of further damage to surrounding teeth, infection, tooth loss, sepsis, heart problems, and more. Fortunately, with restorative dentistry, extreme health issues can be avoided. This is how dental restoration can protect your health.
It wasn’t until not long ago that you didn’t have many options for repairing a damaged or diseased smile. Fortunately, the science of dental restoration has evolved for the better.
