Many people who experience tooth decay and plaque build-up assume that their only option is extraction. Luckily, that's where crowns come into the picture. Crowns can preserve your natural tooth, as their purpose is to cover the affected area, preventing further damage. Some procedures that require dental crowns are as follows:
- Chipped or broken teeth. This could cause a gap in teeth, needing surface replacement.
- Root canal treatment could also be the cause, as it often requires a significant portion of the tooth to be removed to make way for the support structure and the cleaning process.
- To save weak and damage-prone teeth that could be at risk of getting weaker. This is more of a temporary crown and does not need permanent fixing.
- A crown may also be fitted for cosmetic reasons.
Abscessed Tooth Treatment
An abscessed tooth is when the tissue surrounding the tooth or gum is infected. This infection can spread to the base of the tooth and cause further problems.
The causes of an abscessed tooth include poor dental hygiene, excessive consumption of processed meat and dairy without a proper dental hygiene, an isolated incident or general physical issues.
We, at Creative Smiles at WingHaven, can treat an abscessed tooth with considerable care. We treat abscess in a way that alleviates all symptoms of the condition, relieving our patients from the pain they have been experiencing.
Braces can be used to effectively correct alignment and crowded teeth. Even if your teeth are straight, your upper and lower jaws might not meet properly, due to an issue with the teeth alignment. Such problems might result in other oral problems, such as tooth decay, tooth loss and jaw problems.
Teeth cleaning is recommended because bacteria and plaque are regularly accumulated in the mouth. Our teeth cleaning process includes a thorough tooth examination, getting rid of the gathered tartar, flossing and polishing your teeth. Moreover, our dentist can offer you additional information about how to take care of your teeth.
If metal braces don't suit you, Invisalign is an alternative for you. Invisalign are clear aligners that are custom made in accordance with your dental structure.
Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible and fit perfectly over your teeth. They are engineered to provide the right amount of pressure to your teeth in the right places. What this means is that your teeth will gradually move into the perfect alignment, following a treatment plan, devised by our dentist.
