How can we help you?
Patient education is a very important part of the services offered at Springbrook Family Dentistry. Our team will always go out of their way to explain the need for any procedure and how it will benefit your oral health. But you still may have questions, and we encourage you to share with us anything that is a concern to you. We believe that the only silly question is the one that goes unasked!
We've shared a few questions that we hear most frequently from our patients, but you may not see the exact information you're looking for here. If that's the case, please don't hesitate to contact our office. A knowledgeable member of our team will be happy to find the answer you need.
Many people share the misconception that dental restorations will last forever. Regardless of how well a restoration is designed, this is rarely the case. The length of time a restoration lasts varies from person to person. It can be related to the types of foods you eat, your personal oral hygiene, frequency of professional dental cleanings, and even your overall health.
It’s important to remember that, just like your natural teeth, dental restorations are subject to wear and tear and can gradually break down over time. A restoration may become loose or broken down, allowing decay to enter the area around the restoration and creating problems like cavities or periodontal disease.
Getting a Durable Restoration
At Springbrook Family Dentistry, when we create your durable restoration, we’ll also take the time to explain how you can protect and keep it functional for as long as possible. Even though you can’t expect your fillings, bridges, and crowns to last forever, you play a huge part in making them last as long as possible. Maintaining great oral hygiene and visiting your dentist regularly will keep your restorations in great condition for as long as possible.
Please call our Elma dental office if you have questions or would like more information about our durable restorations.
