A dental implant restoration is made up of two main components. The implant that serves as an artificial root and a restoration that replaces the lost tooth. Implants are often fitted with crowns, but they can also serve as bases for other restoration, like dentures and bridges.
A crown is utilized to cover the entire visible surface of a tooth above the gum line. Made of metal, porcelain fused to metal, ceramic, or even zirconia, crowns fit on top of a prepared tooth with intact roots. Most often used after a root canal procedure, they can also restore damage caused by trauma or decay.
Dental veneers (sometimes called porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates) are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size, or length.
Enamel shaping or contouring is a quick and painless process of shaping natural teeth to improve their appearance. It is generally used to correct small imperfections such as uneven teeth or teeth that are slightly overcrowded. … Enamel shaping is often combined with whitening, veneers, or bonding.
Dental braces (also known as braces, orthodontic cases, or cases) are devices used in orthodontics that aligns and straighten teeth and help position them with regard to a persons bite, while also aiming to improve dental health.
Root Canal Treatment with Microscope
The entire root canal treatment is done under a dental microscope, which enables the dentist to reach through the tiny canal entry points and branches. These are invisible to the naked eye, and even magnifying glasses are not strong enough to be able to detect and treat all parts of the canal containing bacteria.
A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. Two types of dentures are available — complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.
Night guards for teeth are also known as dental guards, mouth guards, nocturnal bite plates, or bite splints. They work by putting a barrier between your teeth. When you clench your jaw, the night guard for teeth helps to lighten the tension and give a cushion to the muscles in the jaw.
Full Mouth Reconstruction
As the name implies, full mouth reconstruction refers to rebuilding and/or replacing all of the teeth in a patien’s mouth. Full mouth reconstructions combine esthetics with the science of restorative dentistry to improve the health, function, and beauty of the mouth.
Complete Smile Makeover
Full smile makeover usually consists of a combination of whitening your natural teeth, and the placement of porcelain veneers to hide imperfections and enhance your smile. For perfection we usually recommend veneers for the visible teeth you show when you smile, this is normally 8 to 10 top and bottom teeth.
Dental & Oral Hygiene Education
Oral hygiene is the practice of keeping one's mouth clean and free of disease and other problems (eg bad breath) by regular brushing of the teeth (dental hygiene) and cleaning between the teeth. It is important that oral hygiene will be carried out on a regular basis to enable prevention of dental disease and bad breath.
Teeth Filling & Cavities Management
Cavities are permanently damaged areas in the hard surface of your teeth that develop into tiny openings or holes. Cavities, also called tooth decay or caries, are caused by a combination of factors, including bacteria in your mouth, frequent snacking, sipping sugary drinks and not cleaning your teeth well. Cavities and tooth decay are among the world’s most common health problems. They’re especially common in children, teenagers and older adults. But anyone who has teeth can get cavities, including infants. If cavities aren’t treated, they get larger and affect deeper layers of your teeth. They can lead to severe toothache, infection and tooth loss. Regular dental visits and good brushing and flossing habits are your best protection against cavities and tooth decay.
Bleaching & Treatment of Teeth Discoloration
Tooth whitening (termed tooth bleaching) is either the restoration of natural tooth shade or whitening beyond natural tooth shade. Restoration of the underlying, natural tooth shade is possible by simply removing surface stains (e.g. from tea, coffee, red wine and tobacco) and calculus (tartar). This is achieved by having the teeth cleaned by a dental professional (commonly termed “scaling and polishing”), or at home by various oral hygiene methods. Calculus is difficult to remove without a professional clean
Regular & Surgical Extraction
Simple dental extraction is used to remove teeth that can be seen and are easily accessible, whereas surgical dental extraction typically requires an incision into the connective tissue to gain access to the tooth to be removed.
Management of Periodontal Diseases
Periodontal disease can be grouped as periodontitis, necrotizing periodontitis, and periodontitis as a manifestation of systemic conditions. An assessment of the periodontal status of pediatric patients should be part of a routine dental visit and oral examination.
Children Oral Health Management
Cavities (also known as caries or tooth decay) are one of the most common chronic diseases of childhood in the United States. Untreated cavities can cause pain and infections that may lead to problems with eating, speaking, playing, and learning. Children who have poor oral health often miss more school and receive lower grades than children who don’t. About 1 of 5 (20%) children aged 5 to 11 years have at least one untreated decayed tooth. 1 1 of 7 (13%) adolescents aged 12 to 19 years have at least one untreated decayed tooth. 1 Children aged 5 to 19 years from low-income families are twice as likely (25%) to have cavities, compared with children from higher-income households (11%). 1 The good news is that cavities are preventable. Fluoride varnish can prevent about one-third (33%) of cavities in the primary (baby) teeth. 2 Children living in communities with fluoridated tap water have fewer cavities than children whose water is not fluoridated. 3 Similarly, children who brush daily with fluoride toothpaste will have fewer cavities. 4 Dental sealants can also prevent cavities for many years. Applying dental sealants to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth prevents 80% of cavities.
Surgical orthodontics, or jaw surgery, is a corrective procedure that involves straightening and repositioning the jaw and teeth to correct dental and skeletal irregularities.
Invisalign treatment is the process of wearing a series of clear, removable aligners that gradually straighten your teeth. No brackets and wires, and none of the restrictions that come with metal braces.
A temporary loss of feeling and a complete loss of awareness that feels like a very deep sleep. It is caused by special drugs or other substances called anesthetics. General anesthesia keeps patients from feeling pain during surgery or other procedures.
Composite restorations are versatile tooth colored filling materials composed of strong plastic and glass particles that are used by our dentists or dental therapists to seal deep fissures, fill cavities, and sometimes restore extensively broken-down teeth.
