Types of common dental emergencies:
- Dental caries (lesions)
Once your permanent teeth are grown in, there may be some instances where the tooth (or teeth) may need to be extracted. These cases need to be properly diagnosed by a professional dentist—any and all alternatives should be discussed when considering tooth extraction, including wisdom teeth extraction. They will answer your questions and provide you with the necessary information to take charge of your dental health.
Implant dentistry provides dental solutions for replacing single to multiple missing teeth. Dental implants serve as a replacement for root and tooth, thus restoring strength, stability, resilience, and support to the mouth and jawbone. Implants are surgically placed to the upper and lower jawbone of your teeth. When attached, an implant will look and feel like a natural tooth, which not only restores your smile but enhances it.
Two types of dental implants
Endosteal implants — these are surgically implanted directly into the jawbone. (Second surgeries are usually required.)
Subperiosteal implants — these consist of a metal frame that is fitted onto the jawbone just below the gum tissue.
When the inner nerve of a tooth becomes infected by decay or infection, root canal therapy may be required to restore the tooth. Root canal therapy will provide full functionality to the tooth and mouth, and will not cause any future problems with adjacent teeth.
Three Myths about Root Canals
- Root canal treatment is painful
- Root canal treatments causes illnesses
- Pulling out the tooth is a better alternative than root canals
