ORTHODONTICS – BRACES
Orthodontic treatment is a way of straightening or moving teeth, to improve the appearance of the teeth and how they work. It can also help to look after the long-term health of your teeth, gums and jaw joints, by spreading the biting pressure over all your teeth.
They are variety of procedures to improve your smile. There are many techniques and options to treat teeth that are discolored, chipped, misshapen or missing, our dentist can reshape teeth, close spaces, restore worn or short teeth or alter the length of teeth.
Your general dentist takes responsibility for the diagnosis, treatment and overall coordination of services to meet your oral health needs. If you need a specialized dental procedure performed, your general dentist will let you know and will refer you to the specialist to make sure you get the care you need.
Is the best way to replace a missing tooth, is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason.
A crown is an artificial restoration that fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape of a natural tooth. A crown is sometimes known as a ‘cap’. We have porcelain with metal base, full porcelain, zirconia & gold crowns.
A bridge is a device used to replace missing teeth – attaches artificial teeth to adjacent natural teeth, called abutment teeth. Bridges are either permanently attached fixed bridges, or they can be removable.
ROOT CANAL TREATMENT
Root canal treatment is a dental procedure used to treat infection at the centre of a tooth (the root canal system). It’s also known as ‘endodontics’.The infection is caused by bacteria that live in the mouth and invade the tooth. This can happen after: tooth decay, leaky fillings, damage to teeth as a result of trauma such as a fall.
When your jawbone isn’t thick enough or is too soft, you may need bone grafting before you can have dental implant surgery. That’s because the powerful chewing action of your mouth exerts great pressure on your bone, and if it can’t support the implant, the surgery likely would fail. A bone graft can create a more solid base for the implant.
Removing a tooth is necessary when decay or an abscessed tooth is so severe that no other treatment will cure the infection, removing the tooth can help keep infection from spreading to other areas of your mouth.
