Mouth-guards and Night-guards

Mouth-guards are worn , maybe soft or hard plastic for use in activities like sports (boxing, football) that may give danger to one’s set of teeth. Night-guards are worn by  patients who grinds their teeth at night. This protects their teeth  from too much wear and tear of the tooth enamel and dentin.

 

Preventive

Cleaning, Scaling and Polishing

The most important procedure to determine one’s oral health and should be a routine practice is Cleaning, Scaling and Polishing every 6 months. Cleaning by Professional Dentist is still the mainstay to achieve good Oral health because during this time , all calcular deposits (tartar) that causes gum problems are removed and new dental decays or cavities can be discovered. Early detection through regular cleaning will lead to early prevention.

Fluoridisation

Fluoridisation is a procedure done to young and even adult patients to strengthen the tooth’s defence to oral bacteria that causes tooth decay and tooth demineralization (minerals are slowly dying). Young children needs to have this procedure at the of 3, 7, 11 and 16 respectively for stronger, healthy teeth. Adults who have enamel problems needs this treatment too.

Pit and Fissure Sealants

Young and adult molars normally have natural deep grooves and pits on top of molar teeth. These grooves catches food and if not brushed thoroughly, this will lead to tooth decay. Sealants are resin composed filling material just for the grooves to seal them to prevent tooth decays. These are placed very thinly on.

Endodontics

Written by Super User on . Posted in Dental Services

Teeth are designed to last a lifetime. Years ago, diseased or injured teeth were usually pulled. Today, even if the pulp inside one of your teeth is injured or infected, the tooth often can be saved through Root Canal Treatment. Endodontics (end-o-DON-tics) is the branch of dentistry that deals with treating diseases or injuries to the dental pulp. An Endodontist is a dentist who specializes in Root Canal and other Endodontic treatments.

What happens if the dental pulp is injured?

Dental pulp is soft tissue inside the tooth that contains the blood vessels and nerves. When the dental pulp is diseased or injured and unable to repair itself, it dies. The most common causes of dental pulp death are a cracked tooth, a deep cavity, problems with large fillings, or serious injury to the tooth. All of these can allow bacteria to enter into the dental pulp.

Why should the pulp be removed?

If the problem pulp is not removed, the tissues around the root of the tooth can become infected, often resulting in pain and swelling. Even if there is no pain, bacteria can damage the bone than anchors the tooth in the jaw. Without treatment, the tooth may have to be pulled.

Removing a tooth can create problems

When a tooth is pulled and not replaced, the teeth around it may shift from their normal position. Shifted teeth may make biting and chewing difficult. They may also make it harder to clean your teeth. Areas that are not cleaned well are more susceptible to gum disease.

Root canal treatment can prevent these problems by saving your natural tooth. A natural tooth is almost always better than a replacement tooth. Nothing looks, feels or functions like the natural tooth-and being able to chew and enjoy your favorite foods will keep you healthy and confident. A root canal is usually less expensive than a replacement tooth.

What does treatment involve?

Root canal treatment involves on or more visits. There are several steps that your dentist will perform to save your tooth:

First, your tooth is numbed for your comfort. The dentist will put a thin sheet of latex rubber over your tooth to keep the tooth dry. An opening is made through the crown of the tooth into the pulp chamber.

The tooth´s nerve or pulp is then removed from both the inside of tooth (pulp chamber) and the root canal (the space inside the root). Each root canal is cleaned and shaped so it can be filled.

Medicine may be placed in the pulp chamber and root canal to help get rid of bacteria.

A temporary filling will be placed in the opening of the tooth to stop saliva from getting into the chamber and root canals. You might also be given antibiotics if infection has spread beyond the end of the root(s). If your dentist prescribes medicine, use it only as directed. If you have any problems with the medicine, call your dentist.

During the next stage of treatment, the temporary filling is removed. The root canals are usually filled with a rubber-like material to seal them.

In the final step, the tooth may be restored by a crown or a filling to strengthen it and improve the way it looks and functions.

It is very important to follow your dentist´s directions in setting up your appointments so your root canal treatment is successful.

What materials are used for the crown?

Dental Crowns can be made from several materials. The type chosen depends on where the tooth is located in your mouth, the amount of natural tooth left, your preferences and your dentist´s judgment about what is best for you. This includes:

  • Metal fused to porcelain
  • All Porcelain (metal free)
  • Zirconia (metal free)
  • All Gold Crown

How long will the restored tooth last?

A tooth with a root canal filling can last for years. Teeth with root canal fillings can, however, become decayed or fractured, or get gum disease, just like any other teeth. Daily cleaning and regular exams will help your keep your teeth healthy, whether they have had root canals or not.
