Your Riverside Dentist Talks: Old Dental Work

Do you happen to have some old dental work in your smile that seems to have stood the test of time? Perhaps you have a crown or filling that’s been in place for just a few years but, since you haven’t noticed any problems, you’ve assumed it’s A-OK (and it’s been a while since your last visit). Your Riverside dentist would like to review what to make of work that’s already been performed in your mouth by reminding you that just like your natural tissues, it also needs monitoring, may require future work, and is something that needs daily care and protection! Keep your oral health safe with reminders.

We Will Check It During Your Six-Month Visits

We will check on your dental work, new, kind of new, old, and very old when you see us for your dental checkups, explains your Riverside dentist. Remember that we do a thorough check of your entire mouth, which includes digital X-rays, too. If something is damaged, out of place, etc., we can let you know and come up with a plan to set things right.

Beautiful Work Doesn’t Mean Intact, Well-Fitting Work

Just because your crown still looks just as wonderful as the day you received it doesn’t mean that it’s actually intact, that it doesn’t have any kind of damage, that it’s still fitting you correctly, or otherwise. Your Riverside dentist reminds you that this is one reason we need to see you for checkups!

Damage Generally Causes More Problems And Pain

If your dental work is damaged, it’s time to let your Riverside dentist fix it. If you don’t, the damage will probably get worse. It can then lead to additional trouble, which likely includes pain. When you allow for an immediate repair or replacement, there’s nothing extra to worry about.
