We know that you brush your teeth every day, but only a dentist or a hygienist can remove the build-up of calcium or tartar which causes tooth decay and gum disease. We recommend having a professional cleaning of your teeth, which is also referred to as scaling and polishing, twice a year. Our professional team will educate you and your family with the correct brushing techniques and what other factors that you can follow to improve your oral hygiene.
Tooth sealants are like resin material that is applied on the chewing surface of the back teeth to protect the enamel of the tooth from plaque and bacteria that attacks the tooth cavities. Both children and adults can benefit from tooth sealants. Children and teenagers are perfect candidates for this treatment as it protects the pits and fissures of their back teeth from early cavities.
Tooth colored fillings also referred to as white fillings/composite fillings/bonding, are dental fillings made similarly with the color and texture of the natural teeth to make it less noticeable, and much more attractive compared with other types of dental fillings. Tooth-colored fillings are much more aesthetically pleasing and now the best alternative to metal amalgam and gold fillings. This treatment is also one of the best options for candidates having gap or chipped teeth problems.
Indirect composite or porcelain inlays/onlays have become now viable and best alternative for large cavities of the back teeth, as they have a strong and durable characteristic. These restorations are fabricated outside the mouth in a laboratory or with the help of modern CAD/CAM dental machines and are bonded into the prepared cavity of the back teeth. The strength of these materials are similar to the enamel of the tooth that can resist the chewing pressure of the back teeth surface of the mouth.
Endodontic treatment is necessary when the pulp - the soft tissue inside the root canal, becomes inflamed or infected. The inflammation or infection can have a variety of causes, such as deep decay, repeated dental procedures on the tooth, or a crack or chip in the tooth. In addition, an injury to a tooth may cause pulp damage even if the tooth has no visible chips or cracks. If the pulp is inflamed or infected and it is left untreated, it can cause pain or lead to an inflammation.
A crown is a fully covered restoration for broken or weakened teeth with large defects. It is fabricated either from esthetic glass, ceramic or zirconium oxide material by a laboratory technician or more recently by a CAD-CAM dental machine, which is replacing metal crowns, at a rapid pace.
A fixed bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth. The tooth on each end of the space is used to hold the bridge (abutments). Bridges are not removable by the patient. As with other types of crowns, a bridge can be made of metal or porcelain, or a combination of these two. Bridges are becoming the most preferred option as it uses a zirconium oxide base as opposed to the metal base.
After preparing the teeth for a crown or a bridge an impression of the teeth is taken. With the help of the impression, the dental technician can prepare a model, which is used to fabricate the crown or the bridge. The fabrication procedure takes usually one week. During this time, a temporary plastic crown or bridge is used to protect the prepared teeth. If the crown or the bridge fits perfectly, it is cemented to the tooth or teeth.
A crown or a bridge needs to be taken care of in the same way you would care for your natural teeth. Regular brushing and flossing are essential to keep the restoration clean. In the case of a bridge, flossing in between the teeth is not possible as the teeth are attached.
A special kind of dental floss (Super floss) is recommended, so that the areas under the bridge can be cleaned.Click here to see the Frequently Asked Questions
