Periodontitis is a serious inflammation of the gums. Bacteria that have accumulated on your teeth and gums cause it. As periodontitis worsens, it can lead to bone and
tooth loss. The damage can be reversed if periodontitis is treated early and adequate
dental hygiene is performed.
Early periodontal disease
In the early stages of periodontitis, the gums recede or pull away from the teeth, and
tiny pockets form between the gums and the teeth. The pockets offer a haven for
pathogenic germs to thrive. Gum tissue begins to retreat as your immune system
fights the infection. Brushing and flossing will almost certainly result in bleeding,
as well as some bone loss.
Dentists in general are the primary providers of dental treatment to people of all
ages. A regular appointment with your family dentist will most likely include
a complete examination of your mouth (including teeth, gums, and other structures),
a professional cleaning, and a discussion about your dental (and overall) health.
If your evaluation indicates tooth decay, you will almost certainly need a filling in
the damaged tooth. Nonetheless, while these procedures are frequent, they are far
from the sole services provided by your general dentist.
Prosthodontist provides treatment to patients with clinical conditions associated with deficient or missing teeth and/or maxillofacial tissues. In addition to completing dental school, a prosthodontist will have received an extra three years of advanced training at an ADA-accredited prosthodontic graduate program. This training will have provided the specialist with the ability to treat complex dental and facial problems involving missing or defective teeth and jaw structures. Ideally, a prosthodontist should be highly trained in bridges, crowns, dental implants, temporomandibular disorders, and cosmetics.
Veneers are a cosmetic dental treatment because they are elective and placed for
aesthetic reasons. They are otherwise known as a “smile makeover.”
Veneers are thin porcelain or composite resin coverings that are bonded to the front surface of a tooth using dental cement, they fit over the front of teeth to improve their appearance, protect them from damage and create a beautiful smile. The tooth-colored shells bond to your teeth and change their length, size, color, shape, and function. It is being bonded to the front surface of a tooth using dental cement.
The veneer is a permanent change used to correct tooth imperfections, such as stained or chipped teeth.
Pros of Dental Veneer
1. Easily Whiten Your Smile
Years of drinking coffee, smoking cigarettes, or eating highly pigmented foods can
eventually take their toll on your teeth, turning them an unattractive shade of yellow
or brown. Stained enamel can be bleached at home or by your dentist, but can also
become stained again. If you’re looking for an easier way to whiten your smile for good, dental veneers may be a great fit for you. Veneers are mostly stain-resistant, so you won’t have to worry about discoloration or needing to have your veneers whitened.
2. Fix Minor Cosmetic Problems
Veneers can fix chips, cracks, gaps between teeth, minor misalignment, and/or discoloration — they help correct many cosmetic dental issues!
Veneers are attached to the front surfaces of your teeth — so while they don’t change the position of your teeth, they do camouflage minor orthodontic problems once they’re applied.
Your natural teeth may still be gapped or crooked, but nobody will know aside from you and your dentist.
Orthodontics is a specialty of dentistry that focuses on the diagnosis, prevention, and correction of misaligned teeth and jaws, as well as misaligned bite patterns. It may also address dentofacial orthopedics, which is the modification of facial growth.
Orthodontists use fixed and removable dental devices, like braces, retainers, and bands, to change the position of teeth in the mouth.
They treat dental abnormalities, including: Crooked teeth Bite problems, like an overbite or an underbite Crowded teeth, or teeth that are too far apart Jaw misalignment
The goal of orthodontic care is to improve a patient’s bite. Teeth that are straight and evenly spaced will align with opposing teeth in the jaw. A healthy bite ensures you can eat, chew, and speak properly. In the past,
seeing an orthodontist was associated with children or teenagers who needed braces. However, orthodontists can correct dental problems at any age.
A tooth whitening procedure usually takes around 30 minutes. You can easily devote an hour of your day to the procedure. If you go for a standard tooth bleaching, the dentist will apply a gel to your teeth for 30-40 minutes before cleaning it off before you leave. This procedure will take three to five sessions,
with results visible after two to three sessions.
It will take fewer sessions to attain the desired outcome if you choose a laser whitening process.
Depending on whether you choose a power whitening procedure or another faster method, you could attain your desired results in as little as one session. The doctor will normally place a dam on your gums to protect them from the laser during laser whitening. Then, as the laser is delivered to your teeth, a gel is applied to them, which is activated.
The procedure’s details, as well as how long it takes, will be determined by your personal needs as well
as a number of other considerations, such as your dental health, the degree of staining, and the type of
whitening treatment you choose.
A dental implant (also known as an endosseous implant or fixture) is a prosthesis that interfaces with the bone of the jaw or skull to support a dental prosthesis such as a crown, bridge, denture, or facial prosthesis or to act as an orthodontic anchor. The basis for modern dental implants is a biologic process called osseointegration, in which materials such as titanium or zirconia form an intimate bond to the bone.
The implant fixture is first placed so that it is likely to osseointegrate, then a dental prosthetic is added.
A variable amount of healing time is required for osseointegration before either the dental prosthetic (a tooth, bridge, or denture) is attached to the implant or an abutment is placed which will hold a dental
