Our Dental Implants
A dental implant is a metallic object that is inserted into the jawbone to act like a natural tooth-root. Dental implants can be described as today's best alternative to natural teeth. They are effective natural looking replacements for missing teeth. Dental Implantology have indeed changed the lives of many people. It integrates with the jawbone to give a firm support to the artificial crown or bridge that it will support.
Orthodontics is concerned with the study and treatment of malocclusions (incorrect bites), which may be a result of tooth irregularity, disproportionate jaw relationships, or both. Orthodontic treatment can correct dental displacement only, or can deal with the control and modification of facial growth.
Root Canal Treatment
Root canal treatment involves the removal of the pulpal tissues from the damaged tooth. The pulp can be infected or inflamed due to either deep caries or heavily restored tooth that involves the pulp. Symptoms experienced may range from occasional sensitivity to hot and cold foods, to constant throbbing or a dull ache, to pain on chewing. Root canal treatment saves teeth that would otherwise have to be extracted.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Third molars or commonly referred to as wisdom teeth are the last teeth to erupt in the mouth. In the mouth, there are four wisdom teeth, two in the upper arch and two in the lower. Wisdom teeth may not erupt or emerge from the gums until late teens or early twenties - if they erupt at all. Most often they are impacted or trapped in the jaw-bone and gums, usually because there is not enough space for them in the mouth.
For many years, the dentist takes an impression of your teeth with conventional mould. This conventional method has a few disadvantages that may lead to less accurate impression:
- Expansion and contraction of materials and poured models
- The possibility of bubbles, pulls, tears and distortion
- The fragility of stone models
- Patient’s discomfort
With CAD CAM technology using intraoral scanners, all of the above are eliminated as the dentist now scans your teeth and thereafter sends the digital impression to a dental laboratory. If there are any problems with the impression, the dentist can see it right away on the screen and make necessary adjustments. If the dentist is not happy with the scan, it is relatively easy to re-take.
Over at the laboratory, the digital impressions can be downloaded directly to the millers to produce CAD CAM restorations. This process not only greatly reduces patient’s discomfort, it also improves accuracy and aesthetics.
