A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason.
Root Canal Treatment
Root canal treatment is needed when the nerve of a tooth is affected by decay or infection. In order to save the tooth, the pulp (the living tissue inside the tooth), nerves, bacteria, and any decay are removed and the resulting space is filled with special, medicated, dental materials, which restore the tooth to its full function. Many patients believe that removing a tooth is the solution, but what is not realized is that extracting (pulling) a tooth will ultimately be more costly and cause significant problems for adjacent teeth. Root canal treatment is over 95% successful and can last a lifetime, although on occasion, a tooth will have to be retreated due to new infections.
Wisdom Teeth Extraction
Third molars, also known as “wisdom teeth,” typically appear in the mouth between the ages of 17 and 25. Wisdom teeth help you chew just like every other tooth in your mouth, but when they’re misaligned or don’t erupt properly, they need to be removed. If they’re not, they can cause crowding, infections, and severe pain. Every situation is unique, but generally wisdom teeth need to be removed because they are usually hard to take a good care. Removing wisdom teeth is very much like extracting any other tooth. How easy or difficult it is depends on the position of the tooth and how far along it’s developed. A wisdom tooth that’s impacted usually takes a little longer to extract.
Periodontics is a dental specialty that involves prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the supporting and surrounding tissues of the teeth or their substitutes and the maintenance of the health, function and esthetics of these structures and tissues. If you want to keep your teeth for life Should gum problems arise, you may need periodontal therapy to restore diseased tissues to health
The first baby teeth, known as primary teeth, usually appear as early as 3-4 months of age, but really start to erupt through the gums between the ages of 6 months to one year of age. The timing all depends, and which ones come out first all depends, too, but all 20 primary teeth (baby teeth) will usually erupt by the age of three. And those baby teeth are important, even if you can’t see them and even if they eventually fall out and are replaced with permanent adult teeth. Visit our dentist within six months after your child’s first tooth erupts through their gums, and no later than your child’s first birthday.
Cosmetic dental treatment that can substantially improve the brightness and whiteness of your teeth. And although teeth whitening is not a permanent solution and requires “touch-ups” for a prolonged effect, it remains one of the fastest and easiest ways to improve the appearance of your smile. Tooth whitening (or bleaching) is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to change the color of natural tooth enamel and is an ideal way to enhance the beauty of your smile. Because having whiter teeth has now become the number one aesthetic concern to most patients, cosmetic dental treatment can substantially improve the brightness and whiteness of your teeth.
Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that deals with improper positioning of teeth. A person may have an over bite, under bite, overcrowding of teeth, crooked teeth or a jaw misalignment—which could cause eating or speech problems. In such cases, orthodontic treatments are recommended to slowly change the positioning of the teeth to be straighter and more aligned. Orthodontics can also be used for cosmetic purposes if the person wishes to have a better smile.
Prosthodontic procedures include crowns, bridges, veneers, inlays, onlays, complete and partial dentures. Dental implants have become the preferred method for replacing missing teeth, so many prosthodontic procedures today are done with implants as the support instead of the natural teeth or gums
