IMPLANTS

Depending on the health and oral hygiene of the patient, implants could be a success or a failure. However, implants have an immense success rate and can last up to 15 years. Patients who are missing teeth and desire healthier hygiene in their mouth chose to have an implant. Implants are replacement tooth roots, made of metal that are placed into the bone socket where teeth are missing. It functions as a natural tooth, promotes better hygiene, stimulates the bone, and preserves the right masticatory function. Once the implant is placed, a crown is placed, covering the replacement tooth. Implants can be painful, expensive, and take a long period of time but the result at the end of the procedure is excellent.

We are now able to provide our patients the latest on implant tech- nology. A system called FlatOne Abutment. This system will not only reduce costs to patients but also guarantees a full-arch fixed tempo- rary prosthesis in as little as 48 hours, and in some cases the very same day the surgery is performed.

BONE GRAFT

After loosing an abundant amount of teeth and bone, your appea- rance will look more aged, replacing missing teeth can become complicated, and various facial features will commence to distort. When you have a gum disease or lose teeth, the bone that used to surround them begins to melt away. With modern bone grafting-te- chniques, during a prosperous minor surgical procedure, the bone that has been lost can be assembled again. This can benefit both your health and appearance by strengthening your jawbone. Having a stronger jawbone will allow more effective tooth replace- ment, and increasing support to your facial features. Before adding the bone grafting material, a laceration is made in your gum to gain access to the bone beneath it. For the most part, grafting material is made up of processed bone minerals, either from your own body or an animal donor, around which your body will accumulate new bone cells. A syringe is used to inject the powder, granules, putty or gel, which are all types of grafting material.

SINUS LIFT

When a patient desire to have an implant, the length of the implant may be limited due to a limited amount of available bone and the maxillary sinus being in the way. These factors occur when a molar is extracted without the socket being grafted, causing the maxillary sinus to enlarge, overrunning space that was occupied by the tooth and surrounding bone. Sinus lifting is known as the surgical elevation of the thin membrane that surrounds the maxillary sinus. A compartment filled with bone graft material will be created once this membrane is elevated in conjunction with the walls of the sinus. Five months later, this bone graft material should turn into bone allowing for implants to then be placed.

L- PRF

L-PRF could be considered as a band-aid, created from your own blood and then placed in your surgery sites in order to heal. The den- tist will use the unique IntraSpinTM System to separate and concen- trate certain important cells and active proteins after a sample of your blood has been taken. They spin your own blood in a dedicated centrifuge. When your L-PRF is created, it can be placed directly in surgical sites in order to gain immediate healing. Since the therapy is 100% natural, when placed in surgery sites, L-PRF releases your body’s own natural healing proteins, building an efficient network for cells to enhance the healing process. The L-PRF and bone growth material may be used together to promote natural bone re- generation if you have a certain amount of bone loss. The L-PRF con- centrates the natural growth factors present in your body. Once your surgical procedure occurs, your own concentrated platelets and other important blood cells are re-introduced.

GENERAL & PREVENTIVE SERVICE

You can maintain overall good oral health simply by having regular visits to the dentist. We offer routine cleanings, X-rays, and exams as part of the preventative dental services, in order to prevent cavities and keep your teeth and gums healthy. Typically, the source of care that patients require involves the diagnosis, treatment, and preven- tion of dental conditions. It is recommended you should see your dentist every six months, in order to prevent tooth loss, freshen your breath, and sustain proper oral hygiene. In order to improve your oral health and prevent problems from developing in the future, at- tending check-ups is crucial.

RESTORATIVE SOLUTIONS

If you have had a fractured tooth, deterioration of prior restorations, or decay in a tooth, there is a possibility you could have parts of a tooth missing. This is when tooth restorations come into play, repla- cing missing teeth or repairing missing parts of a tooth. Fillings, crowns, bridges, and dentures are all types of tooth restorations offe- red. Being the most common form of restoration, teeth can be filled with tooth-colored plastic materials, gold, or silver amalgam. Crowns are a type of cap, shaped like your tooth, that is placed over the tooth. In order to get the tooth back to its shape and strength, crowns are placed over the tooth to achieve this goal. Another popu- lar restoration is false teeth, known as bridges, which connect a gap between multiple missing teeth. Dentures, a removable replace- ment for missing teeth, could replace all teeth or some teeth. Tooth restorations are extremely common and highly recommended in order to keep your oral hygiene at its best.

ENDODONTICS

One of the main ways of endodontic treatment is a root canal, howe- ver these procedures could take care of infection, inflammation, too- thaches, and cracks. Having high success rates, root canals are a po- pular treatment designed to treat problems of nerve tissue inside the tooth. Patients having agonizing pain in their tooth use an effec- tive way of alleging the pain through a root canal. Although intensi- ve pain is one of the side effects of root canals, the treatment will completely get rid of the infection. Endodontics specialize in trau- matic injuries, such as damaged, diseased or infected teeth, and diagnose patients, having different procedures at hand to assure the well-being of their patient.
