CROWNS AND BRIDGES
Bridges and crowns are fixed prosthetic devices that are cemented onto existing teeth or implants by a dentist. Crowns are used most commonly to entirely cover or “cap” a damaged tooth or cover an implant. Bridges are commonly used to cover a space if you’re missing one or more teeth. They are cemented to natural teeth or implants surrounding the space where the tooth once stood.
ROOT CANAL THERAPY
Root canal therapy is an often-straightforward procedure to relieve dental pain and save your teeth. Patients commonly need a root canal when there is inflammation or infection in the roots of a tooth. During root canal treatment, your dentist carefully removes the pulp inside the tooth, cleans, disinfects, and shapes the root canal, and places a filling to seal the space.
Dentures are custom-made replacements for missing teeth and can be taken out and put back into your mouth. While dentures take some getting used to, and will never feel exactly the same as natural teeth, today’s dentures are natural looking and more comfortable than ever.
Dental filling is a way to restore a tooth damaged by decay back to its normal function and shape. When a dentist gives you a filling, he or she first removes the decayed tooth material, cleans the affected area, and then fills the cleaned out cavity with a filling material.
