Dental Extraction
Dental Extraction Dental extraction is the removal of a tooth from the mouth. Although there are many reasons for extraction, as a matter of policy, we use it only as a measure of last resort. Your natural (permanent) teeth are meant to stay in your mouth and as long as there is a way to treat them and preserve them, we would recommend avoiding extraction.
What is periodontitis?Periodontitis is a medical condition affecting the gums, the surrounding tissues and the jawbones. The big word comes from the Greek peri-odont (around the teeth) and the suffix -itis standing for inflammation. Commonly known as gum disease, periodontitis damages the gums and consumes the jawbone which makes it the leading cause of teeth loss.
As the name suggests, pulpitis is the inflammation of the pulp (the mix of nerve tissue, lymph tissue and blood vessels residing in the teeth, below the layers of enamel and dentin). It may occur as a result of dental cavities, trauma or infection. Pulpitis is associated with prolonged throbbing pain. Pulpitis can be treated and the tooth restored with a dental filling.
Dental Scaling
Dental Scaling Dental scaling is the removal of plaque (the sticky, whitish stuff formed by bacteria that colonize the teeth), calculus (or tartar – the hard, yellowish to brownish-black deposit on teeth formed largely through the mineralization of dead bacteria in dental plaque) and other such staining from the surface of teeth (down at the root, between the gums and the teeth).
Root Canal
Root Canal American studies have found that each year on average 17 million teeth are saved thanks to root canal treatment. What is a root canal?Teeth are not solid, bone-like objects stuck in your mouth. They are a live part of your body. The center of the tooth, lying below a layer of enamel and a layer of dentin, is hollow and houses the pulp, consisting of nerve tissue, lymph tissue and blood ...
Dental Fillings
Dental Fillings Dental studies from the US show that tooth decay, also known as cavities, is the second most prevalent disease after common cold. Tooth decay is caused by the reaction of plaque (the sticky, whitish stuff formed by bacteria that colonize the teeth) with the sugars and starches of food, resulting in acids that attack tooth enamel.
