By inserting a new tooth, the natural tooth function can be replicated, with a solid and stable foundation that you to chew normally. As an additional advantage, it is emphasized that it does not appear to be unnatural in the mouth, nor it leaves the feeling of discomfort.
The structure of the face remains intact as the implants prevent the bone resorption, which occurs after the removal of the teeth. This can be very important in cases where every tooth is missing. When the implants in the lower part of the mouth are not maintained to keep the jawbone intact, the lower third of the face collapses.
For every tooth that is missing, the aesthetic result is far more efficient and long-lasting, if the new tooth is on the implant, rather than when it is compensated by the creation of a bridge. In the frontal region, it is particularly prudent to stop bone resorption, as it drastically affects the final aesthetic result. To overcome the missing weight, you must not jeopardize your neighboring healthy teeth. A known method that allows the making of a tooth bridge is to grind the neighboring healthy teeth, and sometimes remove the nerves to cement the bridge to them. Healthy glut and dentine that are removed from these teeth cannot be recovered, the health in the long run of such teeth can be risked because they also have the load as missing carriers. These teeth can be decomposed, and after that, they must be exported. Replacement of lost teeth using a bridge or crown, that is located on the implants, is not requiring the grinding of natural teeth, so they are not compromised.
Cleaning up the remains of foods that are kept under the bridge can be much harder, than around the crown that is on the implant. It is also easier keeping dental implants in good condition than total dentures.
Your outer appearance will be greatly improved since implants prevent resorption of the forked bone. Also, wrinkles that appear around your lips with the loss of your teeth are eliminated. Collapses of the lower third of faces that occur with tooth loss are visually corrected, and the most important thing is that the rest of the bone can be preserved.
People who carry fixed prosthesis on implants and enjoy their benefits point out that they have far greater confidence, are always happier with their physical appearance, comfort and know they did what they could to maintain their health.
Endodontics is a tooth preservation process. It includes devitalization (nerve extraction) and processing of the inner part of the tooth (pulp and root canal). A well-treated tooth will stay in your mouth for a long time.
Some of the symptoms that might indicate the need for endodontic treatment:
• spontaneous pain or “knocking” in the tooth
• pain during chewing
• sensitivity to cold and warm
• the existence of fistula or swelling that can be painless
Within the external hard tooth substance, there are blood and lymph vessels that feed the tooth, and nerves that give the tooth sensitivity. The root canal presents a connection to the blood vessels and the nerves of the entire body. Deeper dental cavity or injury (fracture) of the dental tissue will result in tooth pulp injury and often results in infection of the blood vessels and nerve within the teeth. In such instances, it is necessary to carry out the so-called endodontic treatment or tooth treatment.
Such a tooth is not for extraction as often patients think. The best implant is your tooth!
Endodontic treatment (tooth treatment) consists in removing decomposed and infected tissues from the pulp chamber and tooth root canals. After that, it needs to be filled with adequate special substances.
Damaged or infected pulp will not cure itself. The infection will spread to the surrounding dental tissue if the tooth is not treated, the bone surrounding the teeth will degenerate and eventually, the tooth will be lost. The tooth must be removed, causing new complications within the entire stomatognathic apparatus. Although the extraction of the teeth is less expensive than the treatment of teeth, in the end, the most expensive procedure will be replacing the lost teeth with implants or bridges. If you have any chances, save your teeth.
Endodontic treatment at the clinic lasts one or two visits. First, you will get local anesthesia to make the area of work painless. The canal is treated with special intracanal instruments to remove all degenerated tissue; it is abundantly flushed and disinfected. The canals are thus prepared and ready for filling. If the tooth is too weak, a special peg is placed inside the canal to secure the tooth. Finally, a crown is placed on the treated tooth to protect it from a fracture. More than 95% of endodontically treated teeth have been successfully cured. Take good care of your teeth.
A brilliant smile attracts more attention. The bright teeth make us younger and more attractive. Regardless of the age or color of your teeth, today’s modern methods can achieve wonderful results. After the orthodontic correction of the teeth, sometimes the whitening of the teeth is a great way to an extremely nice smile.
Coffee, tea, smoking, and wine are just some of the little joys of life that leave us stains on your teeth or darken them and leave us an impression of an unattractive smile. Fortunately, there are methods for tooth whitening without damaging the teeth. The effect may take up to 10 years – tooth whitening is a great way to look younger.
This is a fast, efficient and modern way of whitening. Results can be expected in 45 minutes. This method has bleaching efficacy for 2 to 3 shades and with reduced tooth sensitivity by 75% compared to other methods. The procedure is performed in the clinic. After application of the gum protection gel, a tooth whitening gel is based on hydrogen peroxide, which is activated by a UV lamp of a certain wavelength of light that activates the gel.
The latest achievements and knowledge in the field of tooth whitening suggest that long-lasting effects (5 years or more) are achieved by gradual whitening under the supervision of a dental doctor. The process itself is carried out at low concentrations of hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. The majority of the bleaching gel contains desensitizing substances in them so that the sensitivity of the teeth rarely occurs.
After completing the questionnaire, consulting, taking photographs and determining the color of the teeth, we will help you decide which method is the best for your teeth whitening. If you want to achieve a quick effect with perhaps not so long-lasting effect, then it would be best to apply the procedure with the lamp in the office. The procedure lasts about 1 hour. The instructions for the patient are that they do not consume 2-3 days of dark food or drink and refrain from smoking.
Non-metallic crowns (ceramic) are the best material for prosthetic work at the moment. Our annual studies show the exceptional stability and durability of non-metallic crowns, and the achieved aesthetics are what distinguished this material and placed it in a convincing first place. When one or more teeth are lost, problems such as tooth movement in the jaw or obstruction of the jaw bone develop. By installing non-metallic ceramic crowns, these problems disappear.
Zirconium is excellent because with it you can achieve an excellent aesthetic effect. The refraction of light and the transparency of the zirconium are very similar to natural teeth. It should also be noted that this is one of the hardest metals and is used in space technologies. The non-metallic zirconium crowns have become primary relative to the crowns with a metal base. Metal-ceramic crowns are still quite popular. The primary reason for this is financial, everything else is on the side of non-metallic ceramics.
It is the peak of today’s dentistry. Aesthetic dentistry would be practically unimaginable without any non-metallic ceramics. The very method of making non-metallic ceramic crowns is: computer-aided scanning of prints, high precision grinding and laser cutting of zirconium leads to a precise fit of future non-metallic work without any long-lasting squeezing and pushing underneath. Grinding for non-metallic crowns goes just to the right, or half a millimeter below the gums (this gives the best aesthetic effect) so there is no threat or gum reaction to zirconium, and the material itself is biocompatible more than metal.
The aesthetic moment is also very important for every patient and us. With non-metallic ceramics, one can achieve something that could not be imagined with metalloceramic dental crowns. The most important result for us and our patients is quality, durability, and functionality of the prosthetic work itself so that we can stand behind our work for ten years and more.
The price of non-metallic crowns in recent years has become more and more affordable. Although the price of metalloceramic crowns is lower, due to all of the above, we recommend installing a non-metallic ceramic crown.
