In order to embrace all the sensory pleasures of the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, your teeth need to be in good working order. That’s why it’s important to get the restorative dentistry you need before you start thawing that turkey!

Rod Eccles, DDS wants to make sure your teeth can withstand the pressure of the delicious foods on your Thanksgiving plate. Restorative dentistry in our Plainfield, IN dental office can do just that.

Today, we’re talking about the kinds of problems that might be facing your teeth right now and why you should consider restoring your smile in time for Thanksgiving.

Reasons Your Smile Might Need Some Work

Aren’t you grateful for teeth that are made to work for a lifetime? We all are, but that doesn’t mean they’re invincible. You can hurt your teeth over the years in all sorts of ways.

Injuring a tooth because of an accident or while eating can lead to damage like chips, breaks, or cracks. You might wear your teeth down slowly over time or suffer from decay, disease, or tooth loss.

All this damage can then lead to other problems. Here are a few:

-An incomplete smile

-A weak bite

-An unsightly or embarrassing smile

-A toothache

-Pain or discomfort while eating

In order to avoid these dental problems and their residual effects, you need restorative dentistry at Rod Eccles, DDS. Our team has the experience and the technology to repair damage and restore your smile. Restorative treatment might include:

-Dental Fillings

-Crowns and Bridges


-Dental Implants


You might need one of these restorative treatments, or perhaps a combination of several in order to get the function of your teeth back.

Now, we’d like to point out some of the reasons you will want to fix your teeth before Thanksgiving gets here.
