Repair old, discolored teeth
Did you know that bacteria in the mouth can cause tooth decay? Even tooth fillings that are chipped or cracked can create gaps that allow bacteria to enter, leading to dental issues. With 300 to 700 types of bacteria living in the mouth of adults, it's crucial to take proactive steps to protect your teeth.
As we age, teeth can become brittle and develop small chips and fractures that easily trap food particles and bacteria, leading to dental damage and decay.
Poorly fitted crowns can also contribute to tooth decay, with caries often forming underneath due to a breakdown in the seal or unnecessary space between the crown and tooth structure.
Untreated dental caries can progress and infect the pulp, resulting in the need for root canal treatment or even tooth loss in severe cases. That's why it's crucial to address oral health issues promptly.
