Various Dental Procedures
Bonding is the use of tooth-colored filling materials and porcelains to repair teeth, to replace broken or missing parts of teeth, to cover stains and discolorations on teeth, or to reshape and change the color of teeth by a process of bonding or sticking the filling to the teeth.
Teeth cleaning is accomplished through state of the art ultrasonic technologies that offers virtually painless cleaning and maintaining of the gum areas of the mouth.
Intraoral photographs can be taken and computer processed to both store as a record and to study for diagnosis.
Crowns are fixed covers or caps that structurally support teeth. They can be gold or porcelain (tooth color). Crowns (they are tight – do not come in and out) are used to repair teeth that have been badly broken, that have root canal fillings, that are malformed or discolored or that need a better bite. The tooth is trimmed , impressions (molds) are taken, the crown is fabricated to fit over the trimmed tooth, the crown is then cemented or bonded to complete the restoration of the tooth.
Dentures are removable sets (sometimes called “plates”) of teeth that replace all the teeth in a jaw. They can be upper, lower, or both. The teeth in a jaw are all removed, the jaw bone may need to be shaped properly with a minor surgery, impressions (molds) are taken, the bite is measured, the denture is fabricated, the denture ( they do come in and out) is placed and home care instructions are discussed.
Fillings are one type of treatment for the repair and restoration of teeth which are broken, decayed, malformed, or treated with root canal fillings. Fillings usually involve numbing, drilling or reshaping the teeth. The filling (gold, silver, or tooth color) is then bonded or placed in the area to be restored. Front tooth porcelain facings Front teeth which are stained, discolored, broken, or malformed may be esthetically treated by bonding porcelain facings over the front of these teeth. These porcelain facings are custom designed, baked, and fabricated to fit over the front of the teeth (similar to the way a fake fingernail is placed over the nail) and are bonded as described above.
A procedure where a titanium rod or post is placed by a Surgeon, Periodontist, or General Dentist in the patients’ jaw to replace a missing tooth is called implants. The jaw heals around the implant, after which the Dentist fabricates a precision adapter and tooth to fit over the implant which completes the missing tooth replacement.
Gum treatment involves many different procedures depending on the severity of the gum (periodontal) problem. Gum treatment includes the cleaning of teeth, the cleaning of roots by root planing, the surgery on gums so that the teeth roots and bone can be cleaned, the grafting of gum to cover exposed roots, the reshaping of the gums to help them be more healthy, the prescribing of medicines for the gums and bone, the teaching of how to take care of teeth and gums by brushing, flossing, water picking, using mouth rinses, and the discussing of diet and harmful habits.
The specialty deals primarily with the diagnosis, prevention and correction of malpositioned teeth and the jaw with braces or invisalign.
Partial dentures are removable sets (sometimes called partial plates) of teeth that replace missing teeth in a jaw that still has other teeth in that jaw. Anchor teeth are shaped, impressions (molds) are taken, the bite is measured, the partial denture is fabricated, the partial denture ( they do come in and out) is placed and home care instructions are discussed.
Retainers are used to help keep or hold teeth in place so they do not move (usually following orthodontic treatment). Retainers can be either fixed (do not come out) or removable. They can be used to hold teeth that have never had orthodontics or braces.
Root Canal Treatment
Root canal treatment is the treatment of a tooth that is sick, abscessed, severally broken, too long and in the way of the bite, hurting due to a pulp stone, or hurting for other reasons. A small entry is made into the tooth and the little tunnels or canals (where the nerve and blood vessels live) inside the tooth are cleaned and reshaped. A filling is placed inside these little canals to seal them off from germs (hence the term “root canal filling”). Most of the time a root canal filling is the only treatment that can help save a tooth with the aforementioned conditions. A crown is then often recommended as the final restoration. Surgery Oral surgery is the removing of teeth, root tips, sick gum, fibromas, mucoceles, cysts, and other mouth lesions; the reshaping of jaw bones, muscle attachments, and tooth roots; and the placing of implants and bone grafts. Gum (Periodontal) surgery is the placing of gum grafts, implants, the reshaping of gum and jaw bones, the guided regeneration of new bone, and the cleaning of roots.
Sudbury Family Dental Care is a certified “Zoom” provider and performs teeth whitening or bleaching in as little as one hour in our facility. It can also be performed by using a ‘tray’, somewhat similar to an athletes’ mouth guard (but thinner and smaller) filled with a bleaching gel material which the patient will wear for several hours each day until desired color is achieved.
