Is commonly known as a “dental cap.” It is the artificial restoration that is fitted on the remaining part of a tooth. It is normally fitted to improve the appearance if crooked, broken or discolored teeth, prolong the life and increase tooth strength, and helps in holding the bridge that replaces missing teeth.
If the tooth is badly decayed, it is recommended to remove the infected tooth and putting a bridge. We will reduce the size of the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth, so the bridge can use these teeth as supports for an artificial tooth in the middle.
Teeth extractions- Normally a wisdom tooth is extracted under a local anesthetic. We surgically remove the teeth by making an incision in the gums and extracting the teeth. Once the teeth have been removed we close the incision with sutures. Pain medications can be taken after the procedure and there will be slight bleeding and swelling in the area that can be managed by iced packs. A detailed post- operative instruction is given to care for the surgical site.
Root canal therapy- Also known as “endodontic treatment”. It is the process of removing infected, injured or dead pulp from the tooth. You may require a root canal if the tooth decay progresses and damages the nerves of the teeth. Removing the damaged nerve and filling the space with new material allows the natural teeth to be kept. Since the tooth no longer has a nerve to provide its blood supply, we may place a crown over your tooth to prevent it from chipping or cracking easily.
