    Dental Fillings

    A dental filling is a fundamental restorative dental procedure that is used to address cavities and decay in teeth. Through the procedure of dental filling, the tooth’s structure and function will be restored, preventing the progression of tooth decay. Untreated cavities will result in more serious dental problems, such as infections, abscesses, and even tooth loss.

    The Most Common Cosmetic Dental Services

    Procedure

    1. The Decayed Portion Is Removed: The dentist numbs the area by applying local anesthesia. Then, using a dental drill or laser, the dentist removes the decayed portion of the tooth.
    2. Filling Material Is Selected: Different materials are used for dental fillings depending on the location of the tooth, the extent of decay, and personal preferences. Commonly used materials are amalgam (a metal alloy), tooth-colored composite resin, porcelain, and glass ionomer.
    3. Filling Material Is Placed and Polished: The dentist shapes and molds the filling to match the shape of the tooth after the removal of the decayed part. Once the material is placed on the tooth, it is polished to ensure a smooth surface that doesn’t feel uncomfortable in the mouth and resembles the shape and color of the natural tooth.

    Signs that Indicate You Need Dental Fillings

    – You have persistent tooth pain, or your tooth is sensitive to hot or cold stimuli.

    – You can see visible holes or pits on your tooth’s surface.

    – Dark spots have appeared on your tooth.

    – You experience discomfort while chewing or biting.

    If you notice any of the above signs, schedule a visit to the dentist to evaluate your oral health and seek the required treatments to prevent further issues.

    Dental Crowns

    Dental crowns are caps that are placed on the tooth and cover them to restore the shape, size, strength, and overall appearance of the teeth that are damaged or weak because of various issues like tooth decay, fractures, or root canal treatment.

    Dental crowns are commonly made of porcelain, ceramic, metal alloys, or a combination of materials.

    Procedure

    – The Tooth Is Prepared: The dentist removes the outer portion of the tooth to prepare it for accommodating the crown.

    – Impressions Are Taken: Dental Crowns should match the shape of the space they would be placed on. So, the dentist takes an impression of your tooth to create a customized crown.

    – A Temporary Crown Is Placed

    – The Permanent Crown Is Placed: After the fabrication, the permanent crown is bonded onto the tooth.

    When Do You Need Dental Crowns?

    The following signs indicate that you may need dental crowns as your restorative treatment:

    – Severe Tooth Decay and Large Cavities

    – Root Canal Treatment

    Root Canal Treatment

    Root canal treatment is a restorative dental procedure that aims at removing the damaged pulp from the inside of a tooth. Pulp is the soft tissue inside the tooth that contains nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissues. Severe tooth decay leads to the infection of the dental pulp, which consequently results in extreme pain and even tooth loss. Root canal treatment is performed to save the tooth from extraction by treating and removing the infection.

    Procedure:

    – Applying Local Anesthesia to Minimize Discomfort

    – Making a Small Opening to Access the Pulp

    – Removing the Infected Pulp

    – Cleaning and Disinfecting the Root Canals

    – Filling the Canals with a Biocompatible Material

    – Sealing the Access Opening

    When Do You Need Root Canal Treatment?

    If you experience these signs, you might need root canal treatment:

    – Extreme Pain in Your Tooth

    – Tooth Sensitivity to Changes in Temperature or Applying Pressure

    – Swelling in Your Gums

    – Darkening of a Tooth


      Dental Bridges

      When you lose a tooth, a gap becomes noticeable between your teeth, and you lose the function and appearance of your natural tooth. In such situations, dental bridges become important to play the role of a replacement tooth that acts as the natural tooth. These prosthetic devices consist of artificial teeth or pontics, which are supported by crows on the adjacent natural teeth or dental implants.

      Procedure

      – Neighboring are prepared for dental crowns

      – Impressions are taken to create a customized bridge

      – The bridges are cemented into place after fabrication

      – You have difficulty in chewing or speaking

      – You Notice Changes in Your Jaw Structure

      Dental Implants

      A dental implant is a structure that is designed to replace one or multiple missing teeth. A dental implant has three parts:

      – Implant Post: An artificial tooth root, surgically placed inside the jawbone

      – Implant Abutment: Connects the post to a prosthetic tooth

      – Prosthetic Tooth: A dental crown, bridge, or denture which restores the appearance of a natural tooth

      Procedure

      – Placing the implant post inside the jawbone through a surgical operation by an implant specialist

      – Osseointegration: Fusion of the implant post with bones. This stage typically takes several months.

      – Abutment Placement

      – Prosthetic Tooth Attachment

      Signs You Need Dental Implants

      – Missing Teeth

      – Problems with Your Chewing or Speaking Caused by Tooth Loss

      – Loose and Uncomfortable Dentures

      – Changes in Facial Structure

      Dentures

      Dentures are removable prosthetic teeth that are used for individuals who have lost several teeth. Dentures consist of Artificial teeth commonly made of acrylic resin and a base that supports the artificial teeth and rests on the gums. These prosthetic devices are held in place with clasps, suction, or dental adhesives.

      Dentures come in two types, each serving a different purpose:

      – Complete Dentures: Replace all teeth in the upper or lower jaw

      – Partial Dentures: Replace some missing teeth. Partial dentures can be attached to adjacent natural teeth or dental implants.

      When Do You Need Dentures?

      Procedure

      – Taking Impressions of the mouth to create dentures that fit precisely

      – Fitting the Denture

      – Adjustment after placement of denture to ensure maximized fit and comfort
