A crown is a permanent covering that fits over an original tooth that is either decayed, damaged or cracked. Crowns are made of a variety of different materials such as porcelain, gold, acrylic resin or a mix of these materials. Porcelain generally has the most natural appearance, although it is often less durable.
Dental implants are often a better choice for replacing missing teeth than bridges or removable dentures. Implants are actually the replacement of your tooth’s root. Implants are surgically placed into the jaw bone and are made of titanium metal that fuses with the jawbone. They do not use adjacent teeth for anchors; like bridges do. They do not rest on the gums like partial dentures either. They remain cleaner since they do not create places to trap food causing future decay.
Dentures come in an array of shapes, sizes and styles, which can be overwhelming for the patient. A Specialist will help you decide what is best for your mouth when teeth are lost. There is no one style of generic false teeth that will work for everyone because every individual has a different mouth and needs. Not everyone needs a full set either, partial sets are also available depending on your needs.
Early Dental Care
A child’s first dental visit should be scheduled around his/her first birthday. The most important part of the visit is getting to know and becoming comfortable with a doctor and his staff. A pleasant, comfortable first visit builds trust and helps put the child at ease during future dental visits. If possible, allow the child to sit in a parent’s lap in the exam room. Children should be encouraged to discuss any fears or anxiety they feel.
Endodontics is the study and treatment of the dental pulp. Endodontists perform a variety of procedures including root canal therapy, surgery, treating cracked teeth, and treating dental trauma. Root canal therapy is one of the most common procedures. If the pulp becomes diseased or injured, endodontic treatment is required to save the tooth. An Endodontist is a specialist in the area of soft tissue inside the tooth. Endodontists, who perform root canals, receive advanced education after graduating from dental school and typically only deal with endodontic-related problems.
Invisalign® is the virtually invisible way for straightening your teeth. Using a series of clear aligners, Invisalign gently and gradually moves your teeth based on the personalized treatment planned designed by your doctor. There are no metal wires or brackets, so you can have confidence in your smile during and after treatment.
Periodontal simply means “the tissue around the teeth.” Periodontics is the study of the soft tissue in the mouth. Periodontists specialize in the treatment and surgery of this area, which is often characterized by gum disease. Plaque is the most common element causing gum disease.
