Teeth cleaning is part of oral hygiene and involves the removal of dental plaque from teeth with the intention of preventing cavities (dental caries), gingivitis, and periodontal disease. Usually they are done every 6 months in some cases every 4 months depending on the individual capacity of plaque or calculus production, sometimes caused by the diet or minerals from the saliva. These regular cleanings or prophylaxis reduce the amount of bacteria matrices that cause periodontal or decay in your teeth.
Wisdom tooth extraction is a surgical procedure to remove one or more wisdom teeth — the four permanent adult teeth located at the back corners of your mouth on the top and bottom. They commonly cause pain or movement of anterior teeth, depending of individual cases. An extraction of such teeth are determined by your dentist or orthodontist depending on the need of the general population of individuals.
Both crowns and most bridges are fixed prosthetic devices. Unlike removable devices such as full dentures or partial dentures, which you can take out and clean daily, crowns and bridges are cemented onto existing teeth or implants, and can only be removed by a dentist. These are permanent dental prosthesis done with the standard of care, anyhow, your dentist will determine if these are the correct way of treatment of if you need an alternate choice that better meets your needs, like dental implants or else.
Dental emergency is a broad, umbrella term used to describe an issue involving the teeth and supporting tissues that is of high importance to be fixed/treated by the relevant professional. Emergencies are due suddenly and they need to be treated as soon as possible for your comfort and stability by your dentist.
Zirconia crowns can be desirable for several reasons. These types of crowns or bridges are a more modern type of crowns, they do not have metals underneath and are a more advanced technology than the porcelain metal crown. They provide a protective covering that we adhere to your teeth, so when your teeth are non- resistant to decay and other types of damage, like destruction due to decay this are the best choice. Clinically, crowns are often an important follow-up to root canals, in some cases. They provide additional stability while also preventing a recurrence of infection due to aerobic bacteria causing decay. We may recommend zirconia crowns to clients who have teeth that suffer from cavities, weaknesses, or stains. In some cases, crowns may even be applied to artificial teeth as a means of protection if you suffer from bruxism, or frequent, uncontrollable teeth grinding.
A “White Filling” or “Dental amalgam” is a dental filling material used to fill cavities caused by tooth decay causing some teeth structure destruction. Unlike the old types of amalgams that were usually non esthetic these “white fillings” or composites are the material of choice. They provide the best strength to resist for the forces of mastication and or chewing. They highly resemble the properties of the natural tissue of teeth, ask your dentist if these are the material of choice that better meet your needs.
Teeth Whitening: is a cosmetic treatment done to improve the appearance of teeth. Teeth are whitened to remove the effects of coffee, cigarettes, and other substances that permanently stain or discolor teeth. This treatment enhances the appearance of patients by lowering the shades of teeth.
Sealing: A plastic material with fluoride releasing agent that prevent decay on the occlusal part of posterior teeth. They are applied to the occlusal parts of teeth (as the occlusal surfaces of molars and premolars) with imperfections (as pits and fissures) usually to prevent dental decay.
Root canal treatment is a dental procedure in which the diseased pulp of a tooth is removed and the inside areas are filled and sealed. They are a mayor cause of emergencies due to infections caused by dental decay or fractures.
A removable dental prosthesis that restores one or more teeth are used in some cases, depending on lack of bone meaning no other type of prosthesis may be used, your dentist will determine the best treatment available in your individual case, but after all depends on the natural teeth or associated anatomic features and is supported by the teeth and/or the soft tissue. They provide the esthetic and the restoration of the masticatory system to the most natural function. They can be taken out for their cleaning and their function is the most effective.
A dental implant (also known as an endosseous implant or fixture) is a surgical component that interfaces with the bone of the jaw or skull to support a dental prosthesis such as a crown, bridge, denture, facial prosthesis or to act as an orthodontic anchor. They are made of titanium and bio-compatibles with the bone and they support crowns or complete dentures as well. These are one modern type of teeth restoration technology that meets the expectations the best way possible. Ask your dentist if you are a candidate for this treatment.
A dental extraction (also referred to as tooth extraction, exodontia, exodontics, or informally, tooth pulling) is the removal of teeth from the dental alveolus (socket) in the alveolar bone. These are used to eliminate infections cause by severe destruction of teeth or in some cases malpositioned or lack of space in regards of “third molars”. Your dentist will determine the need of this treatment using dental x-rays.
