 Bend Family Dentistry And Restorative Procedures – An Overview

In an ideal world, Bend Family Dentistry is all about preventative care. It’s all about keeping your oral and dental health in tip-top shape, and nipping those potential dental problems and conditions right in the bud. However, we are not in an ideal world. Whether brought by heredity, poor dental care, etc., our oral health may not be in great shape… and simple preventative measures are not enough.

It’s a good thing, however, that dentistry is armed with restorative procedures as a back up! When undergoing a dental examination, your Bend dentist will use different diagnostic equipments, tests, radio-graphs, etc. to back-up their expertise in diagnosing existing dental pathologies and diseases. From there, your Bend dentist can map out an oral / dental treatment plan that will restore your teeth and gum’s near-perfect appearance… resulting in a healthier and more radiant smile. Let’s take a closer look at some of the most common Bend Family Dentistry restorative procedures:

Restorative Procedure 1: Dental Fillings
Dental fillings are for fixing the damage sustained by your tooth and its structure. You see, structural defects / damage will not just make your pearly white’s look not-so-good, it can also be a cause of tooth decay, trauma, as well as wear and tear.

This is a 2-step procedure: (1) The Bend dentist will start off by removing the problematic tooth structure. (2) That part of the tooth or teeth is restored by using different filling materials like amalgam, composite resin (this is a white filling material), gold, porcelain, and those are just to name a few. Each of these filling materials has its own set of pros and cons.

It’s essential that you work with your Bend dentist to decide which of these filling materials is the most appropriate for your situation.

Restorative Procedure 2: Bonding
This is the process of using composite resins to ‘piece together’ materials to the surface of your tooth or teeth. If you are someone who’s suffering from chipped or cracked teeth, bonding is the most usual restorative procedure your dentist would suggest. By using enamel-like material, applying it to the surface, and sculpting it in accordance to your tooth’s structure, the crack or chip will be invisible.

Restorative Procedure 3: Laser Procedures
Back then, scalpels and tooth drills are the most common ‘tools of trade’ of a Bend dentist. However, as technology advances, there are cases when laser dentistry replaces the usual scalpel and drills. They can be used for bonding, removing tooth decay, enhancing tooth whitening / bleaching effects, and those are just to name a few.
