Dental implants are currently considered the gold standard when replacing missing teeth. They promote the health of not just a single missing tooth, but also that of the remaining healthy teeth around it. The implant prevents bone loss, by stimulating the bone that holds the root of the tooth, keeping the bone that holds the roots of neighboring teeth healthy and strong.
The decision to straighten your teeth affects not only the appearance of your smile but your lifestyle as well. At first impression, people associate straight teeth with good overall health and hygiene. As an adult, you may wish to enhance your smile for business or social interactions. Invisible braces will allow you to enjoy all the benefits of straight teeth without putting your lifestyle on hold.
Wisdom Tooth Extraction
Wisdom teeth may cause teeth movement. The pressure caused by the wisdom teeth can also cause more severe issues such as cavities or bone resorption in neighboring teeth. If an infected wisdom tooth is not removed, it may generate a fluid-filled cyst, destroying the jawbone and damaging the surrounding nerves and teeth.
A root canal is a procedure used to treat severely decayed or infected teeth. The inside of a tooth contains a soft material called the pulp. It is a nerve that allows the tooth to feel sensations. If the exterior of a tooth becomes damaged to the point where the pulp is exposed, an infection may occur.
