Many people who experience tooth decay and plaque buildup assume that their only option is teeth extraction. Luckily, that's where crowns come into the picture. Crowns can preserve your natural tooth, as their purpose is to cover the affected area, preventing further damage. Some procedures that require dental crowns are as follows:
Chipped or broken teeth. This could cause a gap in your set of teeth, needing surface replacement.
Root canal treatment could also be the cause as it often requires a significant portion of the tooth to be removed to make way for the support structure and the cleaning process.
To save weak and damage-prone teeth that could be at risk of getting weaker. This is more of a temporary crown and does not need permanent fixing.
A crown may also be fitted for cosmetic reasons.
During teeth cleanings and regular checkups, abscesses can be identified early on and treated accordingly. An abscess is a painful swelling caused by an infection in either the gum or inside a tooth. In order to cure a gum abscess, our dentist will need to thoroughly clean the area, allow the trapped pus to escape, and treat the infection with antibiotics. If it's a tooth abscess, the formation of a fistula will determine the course of action - be it drainage, a root canal, an extraction, or surgery.
If metal braces don't suit you, then we have an alternative for you; Invisalign are clear aligners that are custom-made, in accordance with your dental structure.
Invisalign are virtually invisible and fit perfectly over your teeth. They are engineered to provide the right amount of pressure to your teeth in the right places. What this means is that your teeth will gradually move into the perfect alignment, following a treatment plan devised by our dentist.
Emergency Dental Care
Any injury to teeth or gums should not be ignored. Nerves or blood vessels could be damaged. Plus, there is also the risk of getting an infection. If an infection is not treated, it can spread to other parts of the head and neck and cause serious health problems. Getting broken or knocked out teeth repaired and treated as soon as possible after an injury is the best thing to do.
There are a number of reasons why your teeth might have changed color. Common causes involve eating, drinking and lifestyle habits, such as eating candy, drinking coffee and smoking. While most people choose to perform teeth whitening remedies at home, our dentist at will be able to better assist you.
