Tooth Colored Fillings

INVISIBLY REPAIR AND PROTECT DAMAGED TEETH OR REPLACE UNATTRACTIVE METALLIC FILLINGS WITH FILLINGS THAT MIMIC THE LOOK, FEEL AND FUNCTION OF NATURAL TEETH.
In the past, dentists used a mixture—or amalgam—of different metals. Today that is changing as more natural-looking and metal-free dental fillings are becoming the preferred approach. Dentists are using more tooth-like materials (composite resins and porcelains) that are both safe and predictable. The most important feature, for many people, is that they look and react more like natural teeth.

BONDING

Metallic fillings or amalgams could not bond with the tooth; they merely rested on it and provided a degree of protection. Today, so much more is known about the interface between dentin and enamel and the bond created between these two natural products. This has led science to discover new ways of bonding fillings to teeth to create a stronger, more protected connection and also more comfortable fillings.

DIRECT, SEMI-DIRECT OR INDIRECT RESTORATIONS

Direct, semi-direct, or indirect are three different methods to repair teeth with restorative materials or fillings. Each method has its own benefits and drawbacks and is best suited for a specific set of circumstances.

Repairing Chipped Teeth

TOOTH BONDING TO REPAIR A CHIPPED TOOTH



Tooth bonding is used most probably for repairing chipped teeth.

Bonding materials (high-density, space-age plastics called composite resin) and porcelain–are more natural in color and can be designed to perfectly match the surrounding teeth making it difficult to discern there ever was a broken tooth.

Periodontal Plastic Surgery

Periodontal plastic surgery is designed to restore form and function to the gum tissue, periodontal ligament, and the bone that supports your teeth or an individual tooth. The real long-term goal of any periodontal surgery is to increase the life expectancy of the teeth and their usefulness; it is not a cure for periodontal disease. Periodontal surgery:
1- Removes tissue that has been transformed by the disease.
2- Reconstructs the gums and surrounding tissues to better support the teeth and to recreate a normal appearance.

This therapy incorporates dentistry’s two best laser wavelengths which create the optimal conditions for healing periodontal tissues by removing the diseased epithelial lining of the periodontal pocket, removing microbial biofilm and calculus from the root surface and sealing the pocket after treatment with a stable fibrin clot.

Dentures

FULL DENTURES

Are a total replacement system for either upper or lower teeth and, in some cases, both.

PARTIAL DENTURES

For many years, partial dentures have been used to replace groups of teeth or a few teeth scattered across the lower or upper jaw. There are a variety of removable partial dentures available to patients and each one comes with its own set of benefits and disadvantages. All partial dentures attach to remaining teeth and have a gum–colored portion meant to blend into the existing gum, with prosthetic teeth to replace the missing teeth.

OVERDENTURES

Overdentures , a new alternative to dentures, It combines traditional denture technology with modern advancements in dental implants. By establishing two implanted attachments to the lower jaw, an overdenture is able to sit securely in place to instantly increase retention, stability, and comfort. This is especially important in lower-jaw full-denture situations where traditional dentures tend to have less adhesion due to a limited foundation and the tongue muscle dislodging the prosthetic teeth. Another benefit of overdentures compared to traditional dentures is the limited amount of bone loss where the implants are placed, making the procedure most effective, satisfying, and longest-lasting alternative and helping to preserve facial structural integrity.

Dental Implants

An implant is an artificial tooth made of metal and porcelain that looks just like your natural tooth, in which it connects directly to the jaw bone. When a tooth is lost, bone loss will eventually occur in that region because the root is no longer stimulating and stabilizing the bone. By using titanium–which biochemically joins to bone–to replace the root, and a tooth-colored crown that is cemented on top of the implant you get a bond that more accurately replicates the one found in nature. With dental implants, you can smile confidently knowing that no one will ever suspect you have a replacement tooth.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU LOSE A TOOTH?

People who have lost most of their teeth and are not wearing dentures appear to have a caved-in appearance to their mouths. When losing a back tooth you feel like you don’t need to replace it since it’s not obviously shown to others. However, bone loss occurs under the surface once a tooth is lost. Eventually, surrounding each tooth with an alveolar bone supports the tooth and when the tooth is lost, that bone basically melts away. Besides causing damage to the immediate area, tooth loss affects remaining teeth as well. Teeth create a structure for the face and their loss can shift the surrounding teeth, creating esthetic issues and bite problems. A lost tooth can also affect facial structures such as the jaw, muscles, jaw joints, and even the skin. The Loss of several teeth may cause to suffer from social consequences and poor nutrition.

REBUILDING BONE

When the supporting alveolar bone melts away, it’s gone for good, but through grafting, a skilled dental professional can recreate bone to fuse with and support an implant. This is wonderful news, but it is still best to have a dental implant as soon as possible after the tooth is lost for the most predictable esthetic outcome.
