Dental implant treatment includes a metal post or frame made of titanium that is surgically placed into your jawbone underneath the gum line that enables your dentist to mount replacement teeth or a bridge. Dental implants improve overall oral health because they do not have to be anchored to other teeth, like bridges.
An implant-retained denture is a type of dental prosthetic that can be used to replace multiple teeth missing throughout the mouth or even an entire row of teeth. It works by placing surgical grade titanium posts directly into the jawbone to restore the root structure of the lost teeth. Then, a partial or full denture can be placed onto these abutments to give a person their full smile back.
Tooth whitening, is either the restoration of a natural tooth shade or whitening beyond the natural shade. This is possible by simply removing surface stains caused by extrinsic factors, stainers such as tea, coffee, red wine and tobacco. Teeth whitening done by your dentist can get teeth brighter faster. Heat and light combination is used to speed and intensify the whitening process.
The bone holding the tooth is often damaged by disease and/or infection resulting in deformity of the jaw after the tooth is extracted. Jaw deformities can be prevented and repaired by bone grafting just after tooth extraction. Bone grafting can greatly improve your smile’s appearance and increase your chances for successful dental implants for years to come.
A root canal is a treatment used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or becomes infected. During a root canal procedure, the nerve and pulp are removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed. Without treatment, the tissue surrounding the tooth will become infected and abscesses may form.
A crown, is a type of dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant. Crowns are often needed when a large cavity threatens the ongoing health of a tooth. A bridge is a fixed dental restoration (a fixed dental prosthesis) used to replace one or more missing teeth by joining an artificial tooth definitively to adjacent teeth or dental implants
