Replacement of a lost or broken tooth is absolutely necessary. Losing a tooth not only means having a gap in your smile, but has a lot of health-related consequences as well. One of the more common effects is the reduction in the strength of the bite. Teeth do not work individually but as a unit, dividing pressure amongst each other to increase strength. With even a single tooth missing, the amount of strength you're able to exert can decrease.
The gap created between teeth could also affect your speech, depending on its position. A gap is also vulnerable to attack from bacteria, which can sometimes be the cause of periodontal disease. To help avoid these after-effects of tooth loss, it is recommended that a restoration procedure be conducted as soon as possible.
Dental bridges have been a helpful restorative method for a long time. Their strength lies in their unconventional approach. Instead of a procedure to insert an artificial tooth, it makes use of the natural teeth and fills the gap without replacing the roots. If the adjoining teeth are strong enough, a bridge is prepared and fixed using two neighbouring teeth as support. This helps increase the biting strength and ensures that the bridge stays firmly in place for a long time. It usually takes 2 visits to complete this procedure and the result is natural looking set of teeth.
The process that facilitates the repair of damaged tooth surface is called a crown or a dental cap. Due to multiple reasons like gum disease, cavities, chipped tooth surfaces, broken tooth surfaces or even a complex dental procedure, the biting surface of your teeth can become damaged. Repairing the damaged tooth surface is essential for maintaining good oral health.
A damaged biting surface could trigger problems like periodontal diseases, a root canal infection, headaches and even tooth loss. The placement of a dental crown means the replacement of the entire biting surface. Newer and more advanced options of surface restoration, like inlays and onlays, means the use of crowns is generally reserved to greater restorations only, but the stability and strength it grants is unmatchable.
A dental cap may be prepared using either gold or metal alloys, porcelain or a combination of these, depending on the position of the tooth and the compatibility with patient’s body. Porcelain provides a natural looking finish, which can hardly be detected from the outside. This kind of restoration usually lasts for a long time if proper care is taken at home and by visiting the dentist regularly.
Extraction of teeth may sound scary to those uncomfortable with the idea of being in the dentist’s chair, but the team at Newmarket Dental Care can perform extractions safely at your convenience. Our motive is to ensure sound dental health of our patients and for that, the removal of teeth may be necessary in the following cases:
Oral Hygiene Services
Your teeth are one of the most important parts of your body. They require consistent maintenance in order to perform at their peak ability. Even little changes inside the mouth can have a greater effect on the overall health of teeth, which is why you need to maintain proper hygiene.
With little to no dental care, your mouth could be vulnerable to attack from bacteria and disease, causing infection. Everyone brushes their teeth but not all know how to do it properly. Even brushing properly cannot ensure 100% protection from germs. Periodontal disease doesn’t become apparent until it has already progressed into the final stages. This is why it is so important to have regular checkups on the health of your mouth.
The hygiene services that Newmarket Dental Care offers are just the kind of maintenance you need to deter common ailments. With regular cleaning and fluoride treatments, our hygienists can keep a tab on the growth of harmful bacteria inside your mouth. Extensive cleaning can wipe out hidden germs, which can be inaccessible by toothbrush or dental floss. With good oral hygiene habits and regular checkups, you might be able to avoid undergoing more serious dental procedures in the future.
