Several Reasons Restorative Dental Procedures are Important
– Filling empty spaces in the mouth helps keep the teeth properly aligned, and less chance for shifting, causing issues with biting
– Replacing teeth makes it easier to maintain good oral care habits, and helps prevent plaque build-up and the problems that come along with plaque
– Missing, damaged, or broken teeth can affect your health, appearance and confidence

Your teeth may become damaged due to injury, or may simply need to be repaired as you age.
