Research has shown that almost everybody has a 95% chance of experiencing some tooth decay during their lifetime. When tooth decay (dental caries) occurs, it is highly important to remove the decay, clean the tooth and repair the tooth with some type of restoration. If left untreated, the decay can worsen with time, causing sensitivity, toothaches, weakening of the tooth, fracture, root canal infection, and eventual loss of the tooth.
Aside from treating decay, lost or missing teeth need to be replaced to protect your overall oral health, as well as restore beauty and function.
In this section, we will look at the various restorations our dentist in Pasadena can use to protect and restore decayed or missing teeth.
