Dental hygiene is concerned with the health of your teeth, gums, mouth and can even extend to your throat. Maintaining good dental hygiene is critical, as poor oral hygiene can lead to embarrassing and potentially serious conditions.
Dental crowns and bridges
When a tooth has become functionally compromised and is likely to breakdown or fracture despite our best efforts with a filling material, then a crown may be the best option for the tooth. The advantage of a crown is that the entire tooth is protected and stabilised. . When a tooth is missing and the adjacent teeth need to be crowned then it may be that a bridge which is supported by the adjacent teeth is the best way to replace the missing tooth.
Root canal therapy
Also known as root canal treatment, endodontics is concerned with treating the inside of the tooth. This type of treatment is necessary when the tooth pulp becomes inflamed or infected due to severe decay, repeated dental procedures, faulty crowns, or a crack or chip in the tooth (trauma to a tooth may also cause pulp damage even if the tooth has no visible damage). If left untreated, pulp infection can cause pain or lead to an abscess.
Fillings are mostly used to restore the natural shape and function of teeth that display minor erosion due to decay (cavities). If left untreated, cavities can lead to infections or an abscess of the tooth, and even multiple tooth loss.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root made of titanium that a dentist gently places into your jaw. Dental implants are ideal for people in good oral health who have lost one or more teeth.Dental implants are so natural-looking and feeling, you may forget you ever lost a tooth.
There are many options available to enhance the appearance of teeth ranging from the removal of surface stains to the lightening of internal pigments of teeth and more complex restorative methods.
