What are Dental Fillings?
Dental fillings are materials used to replace tooth structure after the decay has been removed by the dentist. Dental restorations include tooth colored composite filling materials. Our dentists do not place mercury or silver fillings. Composite fillings are resins of plastic and glass used to restore teeth that have decayed, are broken, or misshapen though not extensively enough to require a crown or extraction.
What is Deep Cleaning?
With poor oral hygiene, it can lead to periodontal (gum) disease. Periodontal disease is when the gum tissues and bone is infected. A deep cleaning treatment (periodontics) is necessary to prevent further infection and tooth loss. Deep cleaning is also recommended before getting our affordable dental braces.
What is a Root Canal?
The root canal procedure is the preferred method to save a tooth and has a 95% success rate. A root canal procedure might be required if there is severe tooth decay or trauma from a broken/chipped tooth. Typically from severe tooth decay, the dental pulp and/or nerve inside the tooth may be damaged, irritated, inflamed or infected. Tooth infections which lead to swelling of the gum and cheek, could cause high levels of toothache and discomfort.
Root canal therapy is indicated for tooth decay or damage that is compromising the vitality of the tooth or has killed the tooth. The procedure removes the infection and nerve from inside the roots of the tooth and then fills the space to create a seal and keep out bacteria. The tooth is then restored with a crown or filling. Without treatment, the infection can spread from the tooth to the surrounding tissue and into the bloodstream causing pain and major medical emergencies.
What Are Dental Dentures?
Dentures are an affordable and esthetic removable solution for replacing all of the teeth. Dentures are artificial teeth with an acrylic base that fits directly on the gums. Complete dentures are primarily held in place by suction. They must be removed for cleaning and should not be worn at night.
What are Partial Dentures?
Partial Dentures are tooth replacements with a plastic base to be attached to your gums and other teeth. Partial Dentures can also be attached to a crown cap to help stabilize the attachment so that it will fit better.
What is Tooth Extraction?
Teeth that are severely decayed or damaged from trauma may need to be removed. A tooth may also be removed for orthodontic reasons to leave space for teeth that would otherwise be too crowded. Removal or “pulling” of the tooth is medically referred to as an extraction.
What are sealants?
Dental sealant is a thin, plastic coating painted on the chewing surfaces of teeth -- usually the back teeth (the premolars and molars) -- to prevent tooth decay. The sealant quickly bonds into the depressions and grooves of the teeth, forming a protective shield over the enamel of each tooth.
What is a Sport Mouthguard?
Mouthguards, also called mouth protectors, help cushion a blow to the face, minimizing the risk of broken teeth and injuries to your lips, tongue, face or jaw. They typically cover the upper teeth and are a great way to protect the soft tissues of your tongue, lips and cheek lining.
