Who is a Good Dental Inlay Candidate?
In most cases when teeth get weak or unhealthy, some pieces come off. Sometimes, this can be noticed immediately while in some cases it might take days to notice. Many people realize this when they feel the usually sharp tooth parts that are left in place. When you have a missing tooth part, it can be replaced with a dental inlay. A dental inlay is the same as a crown or an onlay. An experienced dentist like Dr. Gabe Doria will use another substance to replace or cover the missing tooth part and recover your sparkling smile when you seek treatment at his dental practice in Bayonne, New Jersey in Hudson County.
What You Should Know About a Dental Inlay
An important thing that you should understand about a dental inlay is that it is not a perfect remedy for a weak or an unhealthy tooth. When the remaining part of a tooth is covered with a dental inlay, the risk of the other tooth or several teeth problem is not taken away. This can be a good way to save cracked teeth.
Some of the issues that can necessitate having dental inlays include dietary problems, lack of adequate calcium and poor cleaning among others. As such, if your problem arises from the tooth itself, an inlay might not provide a lasting solution. Other problems should be remedied first.
When you go for assessment at Dr. Gabe Doria’s dental practice in Bayonne, New Jersey in Hudson County, your teeth will be checked carefully and thoroughly. Dr. Gabe will focus on determining whether you have other problems that should be addressed before you can have an inlay, an onlay or a crown. Your teeth will be tested to determine their strength and immediate issues that should be addressed first.
Some of the immediate problems that may need fixing first include nerves exposure or tooth root problem. Nerves exposures can be very painful. Therefore, they should be fixed first. Basically, your tooth may be possible to save. However, in some cases it might not be saved.
If your tooth is not possible to save, Dr. Gabe will discuss other options with you. The affected teeth or tooth can be removed and other methods can be used in filling the gap.
Because of the kind of the dental problem that necessitates dental inlays, you should know the problems that are discovered and how they can be treated. Dr. Gabe ensures that you learn about possible developments after the assessment.
You have a few choices of possible solutions that can be used when performing an inlay. Usually, porcelain or gold have been used to perform dental inlays.
Dr. Gabe will guide you accordingly so that you can choose the most appropriate substance for inlays. This includes discussing the pros as well as the cons of each option. Make sure that you ask any question that you might have about the options. Remember that the option that you choose will be a permanent solution.
Once you are approved by Dr. Gabe as a candidate for a dental inlay, you will be free to book an appointment for your procedure. How long the procedure will last depends on the number of the teeth that will be treated,
