After losing a tooth, you most likely feel less comfortable speaking, eating, and doing every day activities. Fortunately, dental implants offer a firm support to artificial teeth and will feel more natural than typical bridges or dentures. When you meet with our dentists to determine whether or not you're a good candidate for dental implants, we will look at your jaw structure to ensure that you have enough bone for the procedure. The Dental Implant Process Once we determine if you're a candidate for a dental implant, we'll begin the treatment. The implant treatment typically involves three steps: Placement of the Implant Using x-rays, we will carefully determine the correct placement of the implant. Then, the dentist surgically places the implant into the jawbone. Healing Process During the healing process, the jawbone grows around it and holds it in place. The implant will be completely fused with the bone within 2 or 3 months. Placement of the Artificial Tooth Your custom-made prosthesis will look natural and comfortably fit in your mouth. Replacement teeth usually take some time to make. In the meantime, your dentist may give you a temporary crown, bridge, or denture.
Dentures are a convenient and affordable option for replacing missing teeth. Not only do they benefit your appearance, but they also make it easier to eat and speak. They also support the facial muscles and prevent sagging. They are fitted into a plastic base, which is made to closely match the color of your gums. If you still have some natural teeth, they will be removed before your dentures are placed. Types of Dentures Depending on your unique needs, our dentists will recommend one of the following denture types: Conventional Complete Dentures A conventional complete denture is placed in your mouth after the teeth are taken out and the gums have completely healed. Implant-Supported Complete Dentures A complete denture provides a more secure fit by being anchored to the dental implants. Implants are posts that are surgically placed in the upper or lower jaw. Properly placed implants make the denture secure and can help reduce bone loss. Immediate Dentures Some patients may have the option to get an immediate denture. They are made before the remaining teeth are removed. With this type of denture, the patient does not have to go without teeth during the healing time. Once healing is complete, the dentures may need to be adjusted. Partial Dentures A partial denture is a great solution for missing teeth. A partial denture rests on a metal structure that is attached to your natural teeth. We offer fixed or removable partial dentures.
A root canal is a dental procedure that involves the extraction of root nerves from a tooth, cleaning and shaping the canal cavity and then inserting fillers to prevent bacteria from re-entering nerve system. Most often root canal is done so that the patient can retain the functional and cosmetic look. Dead nerves are considered non-vital. Even then, it's possible for bacteria to accumulate in the nerve and cause an infection. There are several medical reasons why one would need a root canal. Given that it's one of the most invasive yet restorative dental. Any significant change to the tooth that disturbs or exposes the nerves can precipitate a root canal procedure, such as trauma to the tooth. Procedure for a Root Canal
Crowns fixed prosthetic devices. Unlike removable devices such as dentures, which you can take out and clean daily, crowns are cemented onto existing teeth or implants, and can only be removed by a dentist. A crown is used to entirely cover or "cap" a damaged tooth. Besides strengthening a damaged tooth, a crown can be used to improve its appearance, shape or alignment. A crown can also be placed on top of an implant to provide a tooth-like shape and structure for function. Porcelain or ceramic crowns can be matched to the color of your natural teeth. Other materials include gold and metal alloys, acrylic and ceramic. These alloys are generally stronger than porcelain and may be recommended for back teeth. Porcelain bonded to a metal shell is often used because it is both strong and attractive. Your dentist may recommend a crown to
Medical professionals use lasers, which are extremely focused light beams, to alter or remove tissue in small amounts. Laser surgery is not limited to dentistry, but many people have never heard of laser dentistry before having it done. Dentists use lasers in a variety of procedures involving the inside of the mouth, be it to remove overgrown tissue, to reshape the gums, or to whiten teeth. Sometimes, laser dentistry is ideal for children who become anxious or afraid when having dental work done. Most issues laser dentistry treats are related to the gums. Some of these include:
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. Your doctor will create a unique, digital treatment plan that maps out the exact movements of your teeth. Your Invisalign clear aligners are then designed to apply the right amount of force to the right place at the right time based on your plan. Your doctor will be with you every step of the way to monitor your progress and ensure your aligners fit correctly. Invisalign clear aligners are virtually invisible, people may not even notice you're wearing them. You can remove them to eat and drink, to brush and floss, or for special occasions. There are no metal brackets or wires that could irritate your mouth or break, sending you to your doctor for an emergency visit.
Restoration of the underlying, natural tooth shade is possible by simply removing surface stains caused by extrinsic factors such as tea, coffee, red wine and tobacco. The buildup of calculus and tartar can also influence the staining of teeth. This restoration of the natural tooth shade is achieved by having the teeth cleaned by a dental professional . Laser teeth whitening is an effective way to removes stains, fast. In fact the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry says that laser teeth whitening can whiten a patient's teeth up to 10 shades in about an hour. The procedure takes place in the dentist's office so you should consult your dentist if you are interested in this procedure.
Dental scaling is routinely performed to help patients with gum disease and excessive plaque buildup. While a standard cleaning will address the surface of the tooth, scaling goes much deeper. If your dentist suggests dental scaling and root planing for your teeth, it's helpful to know what this means so you can prepare for what's ahead. his is a type of dental cleaning that reaches below the gumline to remove plaque buildup. The process of scaling and root planing the teeth is often referred to as a deep cleaning. This treatment goes beyond the general cleaning that you receive with your regular checkup and annual visit. Restoration of the underlying, natural tooth shade is possible by simply removing surface (extrinsic) 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 "scale and polish".
Dental X-rays are pictures of the teeth, bones, and soft tissues around them to help find problems with the teeth, mouth, and jaw. X-ray pictures can show cavities, hidden dental structures (such as wisdom teeth), and bone loss that cannot be seen during a visual examination. In adults, dental X-rays can be used to:
A filling is a way to restore a tooth damaged by decay back to its normal function and shape. When a dentist gives you a filling, he or she first removes the decayed tooth material, cleans the affected area, and then fills the cleaned out cavity with a filling material. By closing off spaces where bacteria can enter, a filling also helps prevent further decay. Materials used for fillings include gold, porcelain, a composite resin (tooth-colored fillings), and an amalgam (an alloy of mercury, silver, copper, tin and sometimes zinc). Today, several dental filling materials are available. Teeth can be filled with gold; porcelain; silver amalgam (which consists of mercury mixed with silver, tin, zinc, and copper); or tooth-colored, plastic, and materials called composite resin fillings. There is also a material that contains glass particles and is known as glass ionomer. This material is used in ways similar to the use of composite resin fillings.
General Physicians are highly trained specialists who provide a range of non-surgical health care to adult patients. They care for difficult, serious or unusual medical problems and continue to see the patient until these problems have resolved or stabilised. Much of their work takes place with hospitalised patients and most general physicians also see patients in their consulting rooms. Their broad range of expertise differentiates General Physicians from other specialists who limit their medical practice to problems involving only one body system or to a special area of medical knowledge.
A diabetologist is often a board certified endocrinologist who has specialized training in metabolic disorders. These physicians work with patients to bring high blood sugar under control through diet, exercise, and medications. This protects patients from problems caused by high blood sugar, such as diabetic retinopathy, kidney damage, and diabetic neuropathy.
Ear, nose and throat specialists, also called ENTs, ENT doctors and otolaryngologists, specialize in otolaryngology . Otolaryngologists diagnose, manage and treat disorders of the head and neck, including the ears, nose throat, sinuses, voice box (larynx) and other structures. Otolaryngology is a surgical specialty and ENTs are trained in the medical and surgical management of disease.
A dermatologist is the medical expert you should consult if you have any significant problem with your skin. Dermatology is the science that is concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the skin, hair and nails.
The skin is the largest and most visible organ of the body. It reflects the health of the body and acts as a barrier against injury and bacteria. Unfortunately, at one time or another, nearly everyone has some type of skin disease - infants, children, teenagers, adults and the elderly.
An orthopaedic surgeon is a physician devoted to the diagnosis, treatment, prevention and rehabilitation of injuries, disorders and diseases of the body’s musculoskeletal system. This system includes bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, nerves and tendons.
While orthopaedic surgeons are familiar with all aspects of the musculoskeletal system, many orthopaedists specialize in certain areas, such as the foot and ankle, hand, shoulder and elbow, spine, hip or knee. Orthopaedic surgeons may also choose to focus on specific fields like pediatrics, trauma, reconstructive surgery, oncology (bone tumors) or sports medicine.
A cardiologist is a doctor with special training and skill in finding, treating and preventing diseases of the heart and blood vessels.
If your general medical doctor feels that you might have a significant heart or related condition, he or she will often call on a cardiologist for help. Symptoms like shortness of breath, chest pains, or dizzy spells often require special testing. Sometimes heart murmurs or ECG changes need the evaluation of a cardiologist. Cardiologists help victims of heart disease return to a full and useful life and also counsel patients about the risks and prevention of heart disease. Most importantly, cardiologists are involved in the treatment of heart attacks, heart failure, and serious heart rhythm disturbances. Their skills and training are required whenever decisions are made about procedures such as cardiac catheterization, balloon angioplasty, or heart surgery.
