Restorative dentistry can become damaged by neglect or accidental injuryWhile many people visit the dentist to receive cosmetic dentistry such as whitening or veneers, the requirement of restorative dentistry can sneak up on us when we least expect it. Restorative dentistry includes many treatments designed to restore the function as well as aesthetic of your smile. Here at Curtis Couch D.D.S in Thousand Oaks we will work hard to create a superior smile through our restorative and reconstructive procedures.
When will I need restorative dentistry?You may need restorative dentistry if you have been in an unfortunate accident or if you have suffered a gradually worsening dental illness or disease such as periodontitis or gingivitis. In order to avoid the sudden need for restorative dentistry procedures you will need to ensure that you follow a strict dental hygiene regime as well as partake in necessary precautions when getting involved with high-contact sports or dangerous activities. Sometimes it is impossible to see any damage coming, however in most cases these practices will ensure your protection:
- Brush your teeth thoroughly at least twice per day
- Floss between your teeth at least once per day before bed
- Visit Curtis Couch D.D.S at least twice a year
