An orthodontist -specialist in orthodontia, is limited to practice orthodontia only. Whereas general dentists can provide orthodontic treatment along with other treatments for teeth like fillings, cleanings, crowns, etc. Orthodontists are concerned with the study and treatment of malocclusions (improper bites), which may be a result of tooth irregularity and/or disproportionate jaw relationships. Orthodontic treatment can focus on dental displacement only, or can deal with the control and modification of facial growth.
A pretty, white and bright smile, is certainly a good cover letter. But the fact is that, largely, to have or not beautiful teeth depends on genetic issues. The tone is determined by the color of the dentin. It darkens with age because the enamel becomes more translucent and also it is strongly influenced by our eating habits, besides the fact if we are smokers or not. The good thing is that we have choices according to your need, the office whitening (1 hour) or conventional whitening gel with covers that you can use at the house, both grant very good aesthetic results.
Root canal treatment is designed to eliminate bacteria from the infected root canal, prevent reinfection of the tooth and save the natural tooth. When one undergoes a root canal, the inflamed or infected pulp is removed and the inside of the tooth is carefully cleaned and disinfected, then filled and sealed.
Our practice has a full service, oral and maxillofacial surgery with expertise ranging from corrective jaw surgery to wisdom tooth removal. We can also diagnose and treat facial pain, facial injuries and TMJ disorders, and performs a full range of dental implant and bone grafting procedures. We offer our patients assisting with I.V. sedation within our state of the art office setting.
As we age, our teeth begin to change and are prone to decay. There are many possible reasons for this change in your smile. These reasons can include bruxism(teeth grinding), general decay, cracked fillings, and many others. If your tooth is beyond repair with a filling material, we may recommend that the best viable option to save the tooth is a full crown. The reasons for this type of restoration in a badly damaged tooth are durability, cosmetic appearance, and overall support of the chewing function.
If we decide that you are in need of a full crown, We provide Ceramic metal free crowns. You can be comfortable in knowing that your new tooth will be virtually unnoticeable and will flawlessly complement the rest of your smile.
The procedure begins with the removal of all decay and metals in the tooth. A final impression will be taken of the tooth. This impression will be sent to our lab where your new restoration will be crafted. While this new tooth is created, we will provide you with a temporary restoration. Our temporary restorations will resemble your natural teeth so that you can continue with your daily life without worrying about a missing or incompatible tooth.
During your second visit to the office, we will seat or cement your final restoration. You should allow 24 hours for full cure time of the permanent cement, this means refraining from hard, chewy foods that could dislodge the position of your new crown.
