IMPLANTS

  • Implants are an artificial root (non-visible part of the tooth) that a periodontist or an oral surgeon places in the jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge
  • Implants can support a bridge, eliminating the need for a partial denture, or a full denture, making it more secure, comfortable and less bulky than conventional dentures
  • Implants are often a better choice than a fixed bridge because the neighboring teeth can be left intact
  • Teeth replaced using implants have a very natural look and feel
  • Implants can last a lifetime under proper conditions

DENTURES AND PARTIAL DENTURES

  • Dentures are a removable appliance that replaces missing teeth
  • Complete dentures are used when all the teeth in the upper or lower arch are missing
  • Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain
  • Conventional dentures are used after all the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has healed
  • Immediate dentures are made in advance and used right after the teeth have been removed, preventing the patient from being without teeth during the healing process
  • Dentures are durable and will last many years, but they may require repair, adjustment or remaking due to normal wear
  • Dentures require several appointments over a few weeks

 

ROOT CANAL THERAPY

  • Root canals are necessary when the nerve of a tooth is affected by decay or infection or when injury or trauma to that tooth call for this procedure
  • Root canals save teeth that would otherwise die and have to be removed
  • Removing teeth will ultimately be more costly and cause significant problems to adjacent teeth
  • Root canals require one or more visits and are preferably performed by an endodontist
