A dental implant is an artificial tooth root used to replace teeth that are missing because of congenital defects or have been lost due to disease or trauma. Essentially, a dental implant is a small, titanium post (screw) surgically placed into the jawbone and allowed to fuse with the bone. It serves to hold the dental prosthesis, which could be a crown, bridge, or denture. Successful tooth replacement can improve a patient's quality of life through improved bite and a better eating experience, and can serve the patient for a long time.
Crown and Bridge
Dental crowns, also known as caps, are custom-made permanent restorations cemented onto chipped/ broken/worn teeth or dental implants. Crowns are also recommended following a root canal therapy or if there's a large cavity that's too big for a filling. Crowns are used for cosmetic reasons, too. A dental bridge is a permanent appliance that bridges the gap created by one or more missing teeth. A bridge is made up of two or more crowns to fit into the open space where the tooth used to be. Dental bridges are an effective alternative to partial dentures. The bridge serves both practical and aesthetic purposes, enabling one to eat and speak better as well as restoring the smile.
Root Canal Treatment
A root canal is a restorative dental procedure performed when the soft center of the tooth, the pulp, is injured or becomes inflamed or infected. This is done by removing the pulp and disinfecting the canal followed by filling and sealing the pulp chamber to prevent further bacterial infection.
Periodontics is an interdisciplinary dental specialty concerned with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of the diseases of the supporting and investing structures of the teeth including the gums, and the periodontal membrane.
A safer alternative to an amalgam filling, to treat cavities or tooth decay. Mercury-free restoration procedures use composite dental fillings hence they are safer for dentists, patients, and pregnant women as well as better for the environment. With mercury-free options, patients can fill a cavity or protect a broken tooth with a restoration that blends in with their smile. In fact, it is also possible to color-match your teeth and restoration.
A complete denture, also known as a full denture, is a removable acrylic replacement for teeth, soft tissue, and bone loss in an entire dental arch. Complete dentures not only improve the aesthetics but also aid in mastication, phonetics, and bringing back the patient's smile, confidence, and self- esteem. Dentures are an affordable restorative solution compared to dental implants.
