Overview of Restorative Dentistry in Richmond, VA

When your smile is unhealthy or damaged, your personal and professional life can be negatively impacted.  Along with affecting your mouth’s appearance, damaged or decayed teeth can lead to discomfort, low self-esteem, and difficulty performing normal tasks, such as chewing and speaking.

Luckily, restorative dental treatments can help improve the health, comfort, and appearance of your damaged smile quickly and easily. Here’s what you should know about how restorative dentistry could benefit you before scheduling a free consultation with Dr. Roe’s experienced team at Glen Forest Dental.

What Can Restorative Dentistry Treat?

Whether you’ve had an oral health concern for many years or one has developed recently, seeking professional dental treatment sooner than later is always a good idea. Resolving dental problems quickly can prevent them from progressing into more complicated, painful, and expensive issues. Restorative dentistry can help resolve many oral health problems, including:

  • Tooth decay

How to Care for Teeth After Restorations

Some steps to care for your teeth after restorations include:

  • Brushing your teeth two times a day

  • Limiting your consumption of sugary foods that are hard to clean
  • Avoid biting down on hard objects, such as fingernails and ice
  • Visit the dentist twice a year for regular exams and professional cleanings
