Are you experiencing a great deal of tooth sensitivity, or even dental discomfort? Do you notice your smile feeling particularly sensitive when you try to enjoy sweet treats or any item high in added sugar? These are just a few symptoms that it might be time for restorative dental treatment. Other warning signs of trouble include visible discoloration, chronic bad breath and even dry mouth. Of course, anytime you are involved in an accident involving your smile, it is also wise to see the dentist for restorative dentistry. That is because you could have suffered intrinsic damage that would not be easily spotted, but which could badly damage your smile, if left untreated. Fortunately, if you seek treatment quickly, it is likely possible to restore the smile quickly and with great cosmetic results, too.

Seek Restorative Treatment Quickly

One of the best ways to protect your smile from increasingly poor health, is by simply seeking treatment from your restorative dentist, quickly, if you suspect that your teeth or gums could be in trouble. Delaying treatment only increases the likelihood that you will need extensive restorative treatment to correct the issue and to protect the smile.

Dental fillings, for instance, are a fast way to address most dental cavities. Plus, modern fillings can be made of a natural-looking composite resin material. Dental crowns are also fast and safe ways to protect many fragile or damaged teeth.

Talk to Your Dentist About Sedation

If you are concerned about how restorative dental treatment will feel, don’t be. Most dentists now offer safe and effective forms of dental sedation, which can help to keep you comfortable both during and even leading up to restorative treatment. So if you are suffering from dental anxiety, or just worried about a specific treatment, be sure to speak with your dentist about the possibility of using sedation to calm your fears and keep you comfortable.
