What are some of the dental treatments?
- Dental bridges
A dental bridge helps in closing gaps in your smile by anchoring an artificial tooth to your existing teeth. It’s a false tooth known as Pontic held in place by the abutment teeth on either side of the gap. If you have a missing tooth or teeth, consider dental bridges to help you restore your smile, ability to chew, speech, maintaining the shape of your face, and many other benefits. There are four types of dental bridges, and they include:
- Traditional bridge
- Cantilever bridge
- Maryland bridge
- Implant-supported bridge
It is an orthodontic system that uses aligners that are clear to straighten the teeth gradually. They are invisible and mold to your teeth. The dentists take highly accurate pictures and digital impressions of your mouth to customize your personalized treatment plan in the Invisalign software. These pictures are sent to the Invisalign lab, which fabricates your aligners. Some of the benefits of Invisalign include:
– They are as smooth and comfortable as your teeth.
– They are clear and conform to your teeth, hence look as natural as your teeth.
- Root canal
A root canal helps repair an infected or severely decayed tooth by removing and cleaning out the infection. If you have a damaged tooth, tooth decay, or gum disease, harmful bacteria can affect your tooth. Infection can reach your pulp and begin releasing destructive acids that eat away at your tooth chamber. When this happens, the remedy will be a root canal. The dentist will administer a local anesthetic to numb your gums and infected tooth before drilling an access hole in the center of your tooth. The infected pulp is then removed, after which the leftover debris from your tooth chamber is cleaned. Once the tooth chamber is cleaned, it is filled with a dental material called gutta-percha and seals the access hole to prevent further infection. The below are symptoms of having an infection:
- Tooth pain
- Facial pain
- Jaw pain
- Bad breath
- Facial swelling
- Gum inflammation
Dental implants are small titanium posts that replace tooth loss. The dentist typically puts a tiny screw made of titanium into the jaw at the missing tooth area, which acts as the support crown. They use a series of dental instruments to expand the jawbone until it forms a space large enough to hold the implant rather than drilling directly into the bone. The dental implants look, feel, and generally performing precisely like natural teeth. It gives individual stability because they are fixed to your jawbone.
In conclusion, if you or someone you know has a dental issue and unsure what therapies to take, schedule a visit at the clinic and get personalized help.
