Oral health is as important as physical and mental health. A lot of dental problems may afflict a person such as cracked or broken teeth, infection, tooth loss, etc. In the event of a dental problem, it is necessary to visit a qualified dentist before the problem assumes gigantic proportions. People in the current times have no shortage of options when it comes to highly qualified dentists operating out of well equipped dental clinics. The following services are offered by various dental clinics run by qualified dentists.
Filling and extraction
Teeth affected by decay due to caries or other causes lead to painful teeth condition. Broken or cracked teeth due to injury or other causes also cause excruciating pain in the teeth. The dental clinics offer tooth filling services for such situations. In this, the decayed or broken part of the tooth is filled with silver amalgam, composite resin or white porcelain. The dentist determines the best filling material on the basis of several factors such as location and extent of decay or damage, cost of the filling material and the patient’s budget.
The dental clinics also offer tooth extraction in case of the tooth which cannot be salvaged by filling. Both simple and complex tooth extractions are carried out by the dentists. The dentists also offer impacted wisdom tooth extraction for wisdom tooth which emerges at an angle from the gum or emerges partially.
Dental implant services
Teeth loss is a common problem as age progresses. The dental clinics dealing in cosmetic dentistry offer dental implants to replace the missing teeth. Dental implants can also be used to replace extracted teeth. A dental implant is a modern replacement for dentures.
A dental implant is an artificial root made of titanium. It is placed through surgery at the location of the missing tooth root. The implant fuses with the jaw bone by a process called osseointegration. The artificial tooth is fixed over the implant by the dentist after it fuses completely with the bone.
Both single tooth and multiple tooth implants are offered by dentists qualified in the field of cosmetic dentistry.
Implant supported advanced dental clinics also offer dentures. These are dentures which use implants to provide stability to artificial teeth. Another advanced method using dental implants is a full arch replacement. In full arch replacement process, a fixed bridge is installed in the jawbone after the implants have fused with the jawbone. The bridge makes it easier for the dentist to fix a whole set of false teeth. Full arch replacement ensures that the patient gets a set of artificial teeth which look and work like natural teeth and there is no risk of the denture becoming loose.
Root canal treatment
Root canal treatment is offered to save the badly infected or decayed tooth. In this process, the dentist drills into the tooth to get access to the root canal. After that, the infected pulp tissue is removed and the canal is cleaned. The root canal is then sealed with a sealant to prevent future infections.
