Dentures consists of a gum-like base made of plastic resin and prosthetic teeth projecting from the base. It fits over your remaining bone ridges by suctioning effect caused by the close fit. At first, you might need some time adjusting to wearing denture as your muscles, nerves and ligaments adjust to this new denture. Overtime, talking and eating functions will occur normally. Dentures can also help support the structure of the lips and face, providing a natural looking facial structure.
Root Canal Treatment
Dental pulp, found in the center of each tooth, contains a nerve which extends from the tooth’s root to bring vital nutrients to the tooth. If a tooth’s pulp is injured, damaged, or infected, the nerve within the pulp will die and, unless endodontic treatment (root canal) is performed, the tooth may die as well. In many cases, root canal therapy (removal of the nerve tissue in the tooth) can save damaged teeth by preserving the tooth in the mouth. After the root canal is successfully completed, restoring the tooth with a crown is usually highly recommended to preserve the tooth structure and provide strength for chewing.
The oral hygiene you practice at home—brushing at least two times a day and flossing every day—is great for keeping your smile healthy and beautiful between visits to your dentist, but it doesn’t take the place of the more in-depth cleaning we’re able to perform at the DENTISTS of Chimney Heights office. Here, not only can we perform more comprehensive cleaning, but we can also perform fluoride treatments, take actions to prevent or reverse gum disease, or even tell you about a variety of dental options to keep your breath feeling and smelling fresh!
Extraction is the removal of teeth from their sockets.
There are multiple reasons for a tooth to be pulled out…
Common reasons would be a tooth that is too badly damaged, infections that can potentially spread to infect other teeth or crowed teeth that needs to be pulled out for proper spacing.
Bridges are the ideal solution if you have strains or missing teeth which results in trouble speaking or chewing. The gaps between teeth are connected by strong, artificial tooth that looks and functions like real tooth.
A dental filling is used to restore a decayed or damaged tooth. The dentist will remove the decayed tooth material first and then fill the cavity with fillings. Tooth decay is caused by bacteria fermentation on the tooth enamel and the destruction of hard tissues. Filling helps to restore your tooth structure and prevent further decay by taking out the plaque where bacteria enters.
