Dental fillings are used to replace tooth structure that has been damaged by cavities. The goal of a filling is to restore the function and appearance of the tooth.
A crown is a “cap” that is placed over the tooth and is often indicated when a tooth is fractured or cracked, a large filling has broken, extensive cavities are present, the tooth has a root canal, or for cosmetic purposes. The purpose of a crown is to restore function, shape, appearance, and strength to a compromised tooth.
Once a tooth has become infected or necrotic, a root canal is necessary. This is a process that removes the infection from the inside of the tooth. The “pulp” of the tooth is replaced with a filling material and the tooth is restored with a crown. This process allows the patient to save their natural tooth as opposed to having it removed and replaced with something artificial.
A root replacement system. This is the preferred option to replace missing teeth. Dental implants are made of titanium and are placed in the jaw bone and eventually embed into the bone. Implants can replace a single tooth or serve as an anchor for a denture.
These are constructed if patients are missing all or some of their teeth and allow patients to eat and speak much better than going without.
The removal of badly broken down or infected teeth that have little hope of being saved with a root canal.
Called a prophylaxis is the removal of plaque and tartar from the teeth to keep the mouth clean and help prevent cavities.
Periodontal disease can result in loss of bone that supports teeth, gum recession, and eventual loss of teeth. Scaling and root planing will help stop and slow down the progression of periodontal disease.
Deep developmental grooves in our teeth provide an environment for plaque (bacteria) to accumulate and cause cavities. Dental sealants block these areas from plaque accumulation and help prevent cavities.
Varnish or foam will help re-mineralize teeth to prevent the development of cavities.
