If you no longer feel comfortable putting pressure on a certain tooth, the change in your bite function can create more problems than you might realize. Increasing the work done by surrounding teeth can lead to more friction, and ultimately lead to greater wear and tear. You may also begin to struggle with jaw pains, and increase your chances of developing troubles with teeth grinding. Of course, this ignores another concern - you could be ignoring an oral health problem that will continue to worsen without treatment! If you think something might be wrong with a tooth because it is too sore or sensitive to support bite pressure, our Seattle, WA dentist's office can help. By restoring the health of your tooth, we can make sure a potential problem is resolved before the issue worsens, and before you develop lasting problems with your bite. Read more

You may be uncomfortable with your smile if your tooth is chipped, cracked, or otherwise damaged in a way that alters its appearance. The cosmetic effect of a dental injury can be concerning enough for people to prioritize restorative dental work. With that said, some injuries can affect teeth that are harder to see, and therefore less important to your appearance. Does this mean that an injury is easier to ignore, or something that should be a lower priority for you? There are several reasons to take a dental injury seriously that are not related to esthetics. You may have a difficult time biting and chewing because of your injury. You can also be vulnerable to a tooth infection, a potentially serious problem. Our Seattle, WA dentist's office takes dental emergencies seriously, and we are prepared to see you if you need urgent attention. Read more
