Dental-implantOne of the best ways to counter tooth loss is by the use of artificial tooth replacements. This procedure is known as a type of prosthetic dentistry. It is also considered a form of cosmetic dentistry.

Dental implants are man-made replacements for natural teeth, which bring a new way of life to thousands of people whose appearance and health suffer from the missing teeth or dentures. Implant dentistry is safe, relatively painless, and can provide you with a bright new smile.

The full procedure for placing dental implants is usually completed stages. The first is the surgical insertion of the metal implant either into or over the jawbone below the gum line. This operation can be performed under local anesthesia during single office visit. New bone tissue immediately begins its bonding process, growing back around the implant and making it more secure.

In the second step, a small post is attached to the implant. And finally, replacement teeth are created and secured to the implant posts.

There are two basic types of implants: those placed directly into the bone and those that rest on top of the bone. An Endosteal implant, like a natural tooth root, is secured into bone and can provide the anchor for one or more artificial teeth. A subperiosteal implant is a lightweight metal framework, custom-designed to fit over the bone, creating the equivalent of multiple tooth roots. The amount and location of available bone determine the kind of implant used.

Dental implants are the closest thing to perfectly natural teeth, and must be treated the same way.

Implants are designed to last a lifetime. Proper brushing, flossing and regular periodic check-ups are essential to insure the lasting health of the implant.

Advantages of Dental Implant

porcelain-crownThere are many advantages to using dental implants to replace a single missing tooth with a dental implant supported crown, including:

  • It looks, feels and functions like a natural tooth
  • It is much more esthetic long term
  • It does not decay
  • There is no need to grind down the adjacent natural teeth
  • The bone is preserved, preventing a visible bony defect
  • It is more hygienic (easier to clean) than a tooth supported bridge
  • Your dental implants will look, feel and function like natural teeth
  • Dental implants are much more comfortable and stable than partial dentures
  • Adjacent natural teeth are not damaged, ground down to pegs, or loosened
  • They are more comfortable and stable than traditional dentures
  • They virtually stop the bone resorption process (deterioration)
  • Integrity of the facial structures is maintained
  • Appearance is improved
  • It is not necessary to cover the roof of the mouth, so food can be tasted
  • Relines and repairs are infrequent compared to traditional dentures
  • Natural biting and chewing capacity is restored

Orthodontics-bracesBraces are retainers, bonded brackets, arch wires and elastic bands that move crowded or spaced teeth into a normal position appearance, prevention and function. Patients with poorly aligned teeth tend to have much more tooth decay, gum disease and jaw joint problems. Recently invented brackets and new techniques make orthodontic treatment faster and more comfortable than ever.

Benefits of Orthodontics

  • Reduce the risk of injury prominent teeth are more prone to trauma
  • Reduce the risk of decay crooked teeth are harder to clean
  • Reduce the risk of developing TMJ problems
  • Eliminate the excessive wear on your teeth that can be caused by a poorly aligned bite
  • Straight teeth provide a healthier, more attractive smile
  • A beautiful smile increase your confidence self-esteem

Impacted Teeth have been defined as those whose eruption is partially or wholly obstructed by bone or other teeth. Practically any tooth may become impacted. The teeth are impacted most frequently are the upper lower 3rd molars (wisdom teeth), followed by the upper canines and the lower premolars. The cause of impactions is more theoretical than factual. It seems probable that heredity-such as transmission of small jaws from one parent and large teeth from the other-may be an important etiological factor in impaction.

In this day of excellent dental care, as a preventive measure, all impacted teeth should be removed while the person is young. It is easier to remove impacted teeth in he young individual because the patient tolerates the surgical procedure better and does not require extensive surgery, as done the adult. Young people recovers more quickly and the potential for complications following surgery is less.

Why all impacted teeth must be removed?

These impacted teeth can cause various problems such as:

impacted-teeth

  • Gingival Infection, the surrounding gingival becomes infected (pericoronitis) causing pain and pus formation. This may also produce foul taste, bad breath, facial deformity and difficulty in opening of mouth.
  • The adjacent tooth decays as a result of accumulation of food between teeth, which is difficult to remove. This will also produce foul taste and bad breath.
  • Loss of bone, which may also cause lost of the adjacent tooth due to periodontal problem.
  • A cyst can develop and cause massive destruction of bone and/or migration of adjacent teeth. Degeneration of the cyst into ameloblastoma (tumor) and frank carcinoma with its serious sequelae have been reported.
  • Abnormal eruption is caused in other teeth.
  • Fracture easily occurs in the area of the impacted tooth
  • Other teeth are displaced resulting in crowding of teeth and will render orthodontic treatment a failure.
denturesThe denture base material used is flexible and is claimed to be a virtually unbreakable material by the manufacturers. Being flexible allows the denture to avoid transferring stresses on to the adjacent teeth and tissues thus minimizing the trauma of having a partial denture. The color of the denture base matches with the oral tissues to perfection and eliminates the use of metal clasps as in other partial dentures.

root-canal-theraphyWith newer techniques and the latest advances in the field of Endodontics, the task of root canal is much simplified. Whenever any tooth gets decayed, the bacteria reach the nerve crossing all hard barriers like enamel and dentin. Once it attacks the nerve, then that shooting, pulsating pain and those sleepless nights. Now the only treatment is to remove the infected nerve from the tooth.

For patients, root canal therapy is one of the most feared procedures in all of dentistry; however, dental professionals assert that modern root canal treatment is relatively painless because the pain can be controlled. Pain control medication may be used either before or after treatment.

laser-surgeryLaser dentistry can be a precise and effective way to perform many dental procedures. The potential for laser dentistry to improve dental procedures rests in the dentist’s ability to control power output and the duration of exposure on the tissue (whether gum or tooth structure), allowing for treatment of a highly specific area of focus without damaging surrounding tissues.

If you consider yourself somewhat of an anxious dental patient and are seeking extreme safety and comfort, you might consider looking for dentists who have incorporated laser dentistry techniques into their practices and treatments. It is estimated that 6 percent of general dentists own a laser for soft-tissue applications, with that number expected to increase over time.

As the applications for dental lasers expand, greater numbers of dentists will use the technology to provide patients with precision treatment that may minimize pain and recovery time.

Plaque and Tartar

Having your teeth cleaned professionally every six months, or more frequently as recommended by your dentist or hygienist.

Cleaning in between Teeth

Individuals vary greatly in their susceptibility to plaque and tartar. For many of us, these deposits build up faster as we age. Fighting tartar is a life-long component of oral care.

Periapical Adult & Periapical Pedia diagnostic-services

Periapical X-rays show the whole tooth — from the crown to beyond the end of the root to where the tooth is anchored in the jaw. Each periapical x-ray shows this full tooth dimension and includes all the teeth in one portion of either the upper or lower jaw. Periapical X-rays are used to detect any abnormalities of the root structure and surrounding bone structure.

Panoramic panoramic

This diagnostic tool is pre-requisite to orthodontic procedures. Panoramic X-ray makes a complete half circle from ear to ear to produce a complete two dimensional representation of all your teeth to give an overall picture of your teeth and jaw bones.

Cephalometric dental-cephalometric

Cephalometric X-ray shows the entire side of the head. This type of X-ray is useful for examining the teeth in relation to the jaw and profile of the individual. Orthodontists use this type of X-ray to develop their treatment plans.

Study Cast dental-study-cast

These are accurate three dimensional reproductions of the teeth and surrounding soft tissues of the patient’s upper and lower jaw. Because these casts show a three-dimensional view of the condition existing in the mouth before, during and after the treatment, they are a particularly valuable diagnostic tool. Using diagnostic casts also allows the dentist to study the patient’s mouth from angles usually impossible during a clinical examination.

Intra / Extra Oral Photo dental-extra-oral-photo

With the intra / extra-oral photo, dentist can show a patients cavity, broken filling, broken tooth, bad crown, or gingival problem in a much clearer manner. Before and after photos are taken for cosmetic procedures as well.
