An infected tooth can cause a lot of pain and discomfort, and it can be easy to just want to pull out the tooth and be done with the pain. However, if you pull out the tooth, the truth is, you are probably not done with the pain. You are going to need to get a dental implant or dentures, and you will need to monitor the tooth throughout your life going forward.
No matter what age you are, braces can help to straighten your teeth regardless of how mild or severe your case is. The older a person is, the more likely it is that they already have restorations like crowns and dental bridges in place. But restorations shouldn't get in the way of orthodontic treatment. No matter how many crowns you have, you can still undergo orthodontic treatment. Orthodontists move crowned teeth more slowly
I grew up in a home with parents who did not insist on good dental hygiene. By the time I was old enough to know better, some damage had already been done. I had many cavities, crooked teeth, and some discoloration on my teeth. I knew it would not be easy to take my smile from where it was to where it is today, but I was determined to finally have nice teeth. I visited a dentist who was very nice and never judged me. We made a dental plan together. Spreading the procedures out over time made it much easier to afford them. I now have almost perfect teeth after all that hard work! I created this blog to help others who have dental problems that stem from bad childhood habits know there is hope! It is never too late to start seeing the dentist!
