Dental Bridges

Dental crowns made in a dental laboratory are used to replace the natural crown of a damaged tooth. In case of a living tooth, the crown is prepared in order to fit the accordingly filled tooth. If the tooth is dead or extensively damaged, then the crown has to be built on the inlay that has been previously anchored (with a post or screw) to the dental root.

Crowns can be made from metal as well as from materials that match the tooth colour. Gold alloys are considered to be the most ‘tooth-friendly prosthetic materials due to their suitable speed of wearing, easy processing and chemical stability.

Nowadays, modern ceramic materials (porcelain) are becoming increasingly popular, their best characteristic being aesthetic appeal that is comparable to dental enamel. Excessive fragility is no longer a problem when using modern fixing methods.

The combination of the two previously mentioned materials (metalloceramics) is probably the most widely used method at the moment. Here the aesthetic ceramic layer is fused to cast precious metal. The result of this is a precisely fitting aesthetic and durable crown.

Dental Implants

The dental implant is the safest, most aesthetic and natural way to replace teeth. The base of a dental implant (a special screw) is surgically placed into the jawbone in order to replace the missing dental roots.

After the screw has become integrated in the bone, a metalloceramic crown or ‘artificial tooth is made. Such crown enables the jawbone to be spared that may not be possible with other types of prostheses where only the visible part of the tooth is restored.

It is also possible to use an implant-supported bridge with several artificial crowns.

An artificial root is cast from pure non-allergic titanium that is secured into the bone. Surgery is done in local anesthesia and may last for a couple of hours. An oral surgeon will use special drills to secure the implant into the jawbone.

3-6 months later when the titanium screws have integrated into the bone, the dentist will secure the prosthesis (made by a dental technician) into the oral cavity. In the meantime, the patient will wear a temporary prosthesis.

What are the prerequisites for treatment? First, there should be enough bone in the jaw. One prerequisite of successful treatment is ideal oral hygiene. The patient should be ready to have regular check-ups every 3-9 months. Implant therapy is not age-limited. Thorough investigation such as X-ray imaging and cast model analysis is required before the initiation of treatment.

 
Dentist Consultation

Dentistry - dental treatment with different fillings (amalgam, composite and glass ionomer fillings) as well as root canal therapy.

The most durable fillings are made from cast gold or ceramic materials (porcelain) and are produced in a dental laboratory. Gold is the longest known and used durable material for dental fillings. Gold alloy restoration does not dissolve in saliva, nor does it break. When properly made, such filling may last a lifetime provided that oral health is being taken care of (oral hygiene!).

Gold used in fillings has the same durability as the tooth itself; therefore, it does not cause any malocclusion. It is best used in fillings for molar teeth that are subject to the highest chewing pressure.

The colour of gold may seem unnatural, but usually the filling will not remain visible. On the other hand, a golden tooth may also be aesthetically appealing. Allergic reactions to gold are very rare.

To place a cast gold or ceramic restoration, the old filling and the dental tissue softened by caries is drilled out. The resulting cavity is then shaped to accept the final restoration, and an impression is made. This impression is used by a dental technician at the laboratory to prepare a filling that exactly matches the dental cavity and thereafter it is secured in place by the dentist.

Fillings made from ceramic materials match the exact colour of the tooth and therefore is suitable for use in the visible area of the teeth.

 
Denturist Consultation

The types of dentures may be divided into two larger groups: fixed and removable dentures. Additionally it is possible to make combined dentures where only part of the denture is removable. 

Removable partial dentures can be taken out of the mouth. This type of denture is used for restoration of several teeth, but only in cases where the patient has enough supporting teeth left. The advantage of a removable partial denture is that it is held in place by clasps that fit onto nearby teeth. There are also parts of the denture framework called rests that also distribute chewing force to the remaining teeth.

Full (complete) dentures have to be made when natural teeth are completely missing. Dental implants are increasingly used in order to secure full dentures.

Fixed dentures may be secured to natural teeth as well as dental implants. Fixed dentures are frequently used to restore individual teeth or to rebuild sets of teeth.

Preparation of fixed dentures requires high precision to enable good fitting, and the dentures have to be cemented using special cement that survives in the oral environment.

 
Endodontist Consultation

Root canal treatment helps to save the teeth where the dental pulp is dead. Lack of circulation in dead pulp means that it also lacks the antibodies produced in the body. Such dental cavities and nerve canals usually contain bacteria; therefore, the aim of treatment is cleaning and filling the canal system.

Usually cleaning and enlarging root canals is done during the first appointment, after which an antibacterial drug is placed into the dental cavity that is then sealed securely with a temporary filling.

Root canal treatment may take from one to five appointments depending on the nature of dental root inflammation. Once the root canal system is free from infection, the canals are filled with points made from rubber-like material, gutta percha, in order to prevent the re-entry of bacteria into the root canal system. The next step after filling root canals is restoration of the dental crown.

If the tooth is still alive, then anesthetics are used in root canal treatment. Root canal treatment of a dead tooth does not require anesthesia. Short-term pain may occur during the preparation of a root canal when material is being pushed through the root apex.

The prognosis of successful root canal treatment is good. An X-ray imaging is performed half a year after root canal treatment to check the healing of any extensive apical bone destruction.

 
Extractions
 
Gingivitis Treatment

Treatment of gum diseases consists of removal of different deposits (tartar) from teeth. We use different devices and methods for removal. A bacterial film that grows on the tooth surface causes gum inflammation or gingivitis. The first sign of inflammation is gingival bleeding (as a result of brushing teeth) as well as an unpleasant odour and taste in the mouth. Inflammatory gum pockets are good soil for bacteria, enabling them to spread to other parts of the body and aggravate several systemic diseases.

If gum diseases are left untreated (i.e. dental plaque is not removed), the dental attachment tissue starts to disintegrate. The gum detaches from the tooth and the resulting deep gum pockets are a suitable environment for bacteria that destroy the jawbone. The causes of acute gingivitis are not always clear, but usually the reason is a general decrease of host resistance due to systemic diseases.

Periapical (the area around the dental root) inflammation is characterised by gingival bleeding and unpleasant mouth odour as well as gum swelling, abscesses in gum pockets and loose teeth.

However, the prevalent trend in modern dentistry is disease prevention and therefore gum treatment is complex and is primarily focused on investigating the disease causes, teaching proper oral hygiene, shaping a personal oral hygiene program and check-ups. One prerequisite for preventing and healing gingivitis is good daily oral hygiene at home.
