The Functional Importance of Dental Restorations

Your Smile Is Our Priority

Ready to Make an Appointment?

The loss of a tooth isn’t just a cosmetic concern – it’s a functional emergency. Whether due to an accident or gum disease, the gap left behind can significantly disrupt your oral health. Beyond the aesthetic implications, a missing tooth can lead to teeth misalignment, bone deterioration, and difficulties in eating properly. These changes can affect not just your smile, but also the overall efficiency of your bite and jaw function.

At Journal Square Dental, we understand the importance of promptly addressing these issues with a dental implant. Our approach focuses on more than just filling a space; it’s about restoring the full functionality of your mouth. With a few expertly managed sessions, we aim to reinstate the natural mechanics of your bite, ensuring you can chew comfortably and maintain the integrity of your jaw and remaining teeth. With over 25 years of dedicated service in New Jersey, Journal Square Dental is committed to delivering not just a restored smile, but a fully functional and healthy oral environment.

How Dental Restorations Are Important to the Function of Your Teeth 

Dental restorations play a crucial role in maintaining the function of your teeth. This process is essential for those suffering from tooth decay, gum disease, or dental injuries. At Journal Square Dental, the primary focus of restorative dentistry is to preserve as much of the natural tooth as possible while restoring its function, look, and feel. Treatments like root canals, crowns, and dental implants are not only meant to enhance the appearance of your teeth but also to ensure they perform their vital functions effectively.

A root canal, for example, addresses the rot in a tooth’s pulpy inside, preventing reinfection and preserving the natural tooth. Dental crowns, acting as a cap over a decayed or worn tooth, restore the tooth’s integrity and prevent further damage. Dental implants fill the gap left by a missing tooth, crucial for maintaining the alignment of surrounding teeth and the strength of the jawbone. These implants, built to last a lifetime with proper care, play a significant role in preserving the mouth’s overall functionality, impacting biting, chewing, and even speaking abilities.
