DENTAL FILLINGS

If you have by no means had a hole in your teeth, congratulations! Approximately 80% of us have had no less than one cavity by the time we reach age 20, a report by the U.S. healthcare professional said there’s a verified treatment for cavities: the dental filling.

Dental Fillings is a Restorative Procedure where a tooth isn’t in an invasive surgery, but you have to take it seriously. if you have a filling, that means you have had a cavity at least once in your life. Our Weston Dentist team uses Dental Fillings to get rid of the part of the tooth that is decaying and replaces it along with your choice of filling material to help maintain the rest of the teeth.

TYPES OF DENTAL FILLINGS

Composite

Composites are the next Dental Filling that most people get. People might never at any point realize that you have a filling since they can almost match the color of your tooth. Not only can our dentist use composite resin to fill in where there was decay, but it can also be used to help repair broken, chipped, or worn teeth. When you choose the composite filling, our dentist will make up the mixture and place it wetly into the cavity you need to fill. They let it dry there until it is hard; they then sand off any rough edges and the Dental Fillings process will be finished

Glass Ionomer

If the problem is under the gum line, glass ionomers can be used, they’re crafted from glass and acrylic. They price similar to composite Dental Filling, however do not last longer.

Glass Ionomers release fluoride, that can protect the teeth from further decay. however, this material is weaker than composite and is more susceptible to wear and at risk of fracture.

What to Expect After Getting a Dental Filling

The numbness as a result of your local anesthesia should wear off in a couple of hours after the Restorative Procedure. Our Family Cosmetic Dental Specialist will need you to have someone with you for the first 24 hours, you’ll be taking pain medications that would make you very sleepy, and we will want someone to be with you in case you have any complications and need assistance.

The functions of a crown consist of changing a large filling when there isn’t sufficient tooth remaining, protecting a weak tooth from fracturing, masking a dental implant, covering a discolored, or protecting a teeth that has had root canal treatment. Additionally known as caps a crown is most common Dental Restoration Procedure work in Cosmetic Dentistry.

What are Dental Bridges?

Dental bridges literally create a bridge for the gap created by one or more missing teeth. Gaps left by missing teeth cause the remaining teeth to rotate or shift into the empty spaces, which can result in an imbalanced bite. This can also lead to gum disease and tempormandibular joint disorder (TMJ).

A porcelain crown or porcelain veneer, properly manufactured and bonded, should last 20 years or more. A crown is used when a tooth is compromised by wear, fracture, decay, large fillings, or root canal. A veneer is used for more conservative reasons, usually esthetic. If you tooth is healthy, you should not be thinking about an implant.

Crowns are made from a variety of single and combined materials; these include gold, metal alloys, ceramic, porcelain, composite resin, and zirconia. Many combination crowns are made from a layer of porcelain fused to a metal base.

Root canals are not required to place a crown, but all teeth that have undergone root canal treatment should be crowned.

-Aesthetics: It restores the shape, size, strength and appearance of your original tooth.
-Protection: It provides the best protection for a weak tooth of any restoration.
-Durability: It can last 15 years or longer if you care well for it.

-Aesthetics: It fills in the gaps in your smile and in your face.
-Restoration: It restores speech and chewing to full capacity.
-Distribution: It distributes the force of your bite equally, taking the stress off of other teeth.

The process of fitting crowns and bridges requires two or tree visits. During the first session we takes X-rays to assess the health of your mouth.

To protect the prepared teeth between visits a temporary bridge or crown may be bonded (you must also avoid hard or sticky food and keep the temporary bridge or crown clean). During the second session: the temporary bridge or crown is removed. The permanent crown or bridge is checked for color and fit. If you and your dentist are happy with your crown or bridge, it is permanently fixed in place with dental glue.

While a crowned tooth does not require any special care, you should continue to follow good oral hygiene practices, including brushing your teeth at least twice a day and flossing once a day – especially around the crown area where the gum meets the tooth.

Our Dental Team cannot remove a Bridge for cleaning because they are cemented in place it must be cleaned daily using special dental floss to keep the teeth healthy.

Dental Implants

What are Restorative Dental Implants?

A Restorative Dental Implant is a replacement of artificial root of a tooth that is placed into your jaw by fusing to the bone to hold a replacement tooth or a bridge. Restorative Dental Implants also help our patients maintain the jawbone’s shape and density, such as the gum tissues, cheeks, and lips. Implants are often the best treatment for missing teeth and are the closest you can get to a natural healthy teeth. They will allow you to smile, eat, laugh, talk, and look completely natural with confidence. If you have missing teeth, you can qualify to get dental implants.

Healthy gums and enough bone to hold the implant is a must for any dental implant treatment also they must be committed to good oral hygiene and regular dental visits. Regular smokers, also people suffering from uncontrolled disorders such as diabetes or heart disease or patients who have had radiation therapy to the head and neck area need to be evaluated on an regular basis. If you are considering implants, let us know to see if they are right for you.

It is very important that you are in good health. Some conditions and diseases can affect whether dental implants are right for you. It is very important to let your dental surgeon know all about your medical status. For example, you may not be qualified if you are a smoker, an alcoholic, have cancer or diabetes, or have gum diseases. Also let your dentist know all about the medications you are taking, whether they are prescribed, herbal, or over the counter. Implants do require maintenance.

It is very important to follow good daily, oral hygiene to prevent any bacteria from growing in your mouth. It is very important to make follow up appointments so your dentist can monitor your implants to make sure they are functioning properly. Special tools will be necessary to clean your dental implants. Use an extra soft toothbrush twice daily to clean the dental implants, being careful to avoid the surgical incision area. Despite these special cleaning challenges, dental implants are highly successful.

There are many advantages to dental implants, including:

  • Improved appearance. Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth.
  • Improved speech. With poor-fitting dentures, the teeth can slip within the mouth causing you to mumble or slur your words. Dental implants allow you to speak without the worry that teeth might slip.
  • Improved comfort. Because they become part of you, implants eliminate the discomfort of removable dentures.
  • Easier eating. Sliding dentures can make chewing difficult. Dental implants function like your own teeth, allowing you to eat your favorite foods with confidence and without pain.
  • Improved self-esteem. Dental implants can give you back your smile and help you feel better about yourself.
  • Improved oral health. Dental implants don’t require reducing other teeth, as a tooth-supported bridge does. Because nearby teeth are not altered to support the implant, more of your own teeth are left intact, improving long-term oral health.
  • Durability. Implants are very durable and will last many years. With good care, many implants last a lifetime.
  • Convenience. Removable dentures are just that; removable. Dental implants eliminate the embarrassing inconvenience of removing dentures, as well as the need for messy adhesives to keep them in place.

Because implants fuse to your jawbone, they provide stable support for artificial teeth. Dentures and bridges mounted to implants won’t slip or shift in your mouth —  an especially important benefit when eating and speaking. This secure fit helps the dentures and bridges — as well as individual crowns placed over implants — feel more natural than conventional bridges or dentures.

For some people, ordinary bridges and dentures are simply not comfortable or even possible, due to sore spots, poor ridges or gagging. In addition, ordinary bridges must be attached to teeth on either side of the space left by the missing tooth.

To receive implants, you need to have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant. You must also commit to keeping these structures healthy. Meticulous oral hygiene and regular dental visits are critical to the long-term success of dental implants.

Implants are usually more expensive than other methods of tooth replacement, and most insurance carriers typically cover less than 10 percent of the fees.

The American Dental Association considers two types of implants to be safe. They are:

  • Endosteal implants — these are surgically implanted directly into the jawbone. Once the surrounding gum tissue has healed, a second surgery is needed to connect a post to the original implant.
  • Subperiosteal implants — these consist of a metal frame that is fitted onto the jawbone just below the gum tissue. As the gums heal, the frame becomes fixed to the jawbone.

In most cases, anyone healthy enough to undergo a routine dental extraction or oral surgery can be considered for a dental implant. Healthy gums and enough bone to hold the implant is a must for any dental implant treatment also they must be committed to good oral hygiene and regular dental visits. Heavy smokers, people suffering from uncontrolled chronic disorders — such as diabetes or heart disease — or patients who have had radiation therapy to the head/neck area need to be evaluated on an individual basis. If you are considering implants, talk to your dentist to see if they are right for you.
