Crown And Bridge
Your smile is the first impression that others have of you, so it makes sense that you would want it to be bright, white and healthy. According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, more than 99 percent of all American adults believe that a smile is an important asset for social situations. Perhaps that is why so many patients are electing cosmetic dental procedures to improve their smiles and boost self-confidence.
Dentures are prosthetic devices constructed to replace missing teeth. They are supported by the surrounding soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity. Conventional dentures are removable (removable partial denture or complete denture). However, there are many different denture designs, some which rely on bonding or clasping onto teeth or dental implants (fixed prosthodontics). There are two main categories of dentures, the distinction being whether they are used to replace missing teeth on the mandibular arch or on the maxillary arch.
Crowns and most bridges are fixed prosthetic devices. A crown is an application used to repair a badly-broken or damaged tooth without the need for removal or dental implantation. Essentially, a crown is a cap used to restore a tooth to its original appearance and prevent further damage or decay.
A bridge, unlike a crown, utilizes existing teeth to fill in an area left vacant by a missing tooth. This method anchors a prosthetic tooth into the gap with the two adjacent teeth to establish symmetry and create a natural-looking appearance.
Periodontal treatment is to thoroughly clean the pockets around teeth and prevent damage to the surrounding bone. Treatment may be performed by a periodontist, dentist, or dental hygienist. You have the best chance for successful treatment when you adopt a daily routine of good oral care.
Root Canal Therapy
Endodontic treatment treats the inside of the tooth. Endodontic treatment is necessary when the pulp becomes inflamed or infected. This type of inflammation or infection can have a variety of causes: deep decay, repeated dental procedures on the tooth, faulty crowns, or a crack or chip in the tooth.
A number of conditions may need oral surgery, including impacted teeth, tooth loss, jaw relationship and injury.
