07 Feb Choosing the Right Dental Treatment for Your Teeth’s Condition
Did you know our enamels are one of the strongest substances in our body? However, despite their strength, they can still get worn out from daily wear and tear if we don’t take care of them. When we start to neglect our dental health, that’s usually when it’s already too late and damage to our teeth creeps in. This also holds true when you don’t schedule your regular dental visits to maintain your oral health.
If you’ve ever had cavities, you know how sensitive they can be. Cavities are usually formed when we neglect to take care of our teeth, causing the enamel to erode and decay. In this case, you would get dental fillings which will have the dentist remove the decay, clean the cavity and seal the tooth with a filling material.
Veneers are thin discs that are custom-shaped to conform with your tooth which is cemented with a special dental adhesive. Dental veneers are an excellent treatment those minor teeth flaws, misshapen teeth or just worn out teeth from aging.
When you start to feel pain with constant sensation, it’s mean the decay already reached your nerve and you need root canal treatment for that teeth. This treatment is one of the major dental treatments that involves replacing an infected pulp, or “root” with a filling. This pulp is a sensitive tissue containing blood vessels and nerves inside your enamel that also function to bring oxygen, nutrients, minerals and feeling to your teeth.
When you have an accident and your teeth suddenly getting grey it needs root canal treatment also
During the treatment, the dentist cleans the infected or decayed root canals and reshapes it with precision dental instruments such as drills and files. An artificial filling is then created, which can either be silver or tooth-colored to cover the exposed root. Depending on the severity of the infection, a root canal treatment may need to be performed in several stages and visits.
When your tooth is damaged beyond repair – perhaps from an accident or neglect of oral health – or you have a missing tooth due to an aforementioned situation, it may be a better option to replace the entire tooth.
Dental implants are a surgical procedure that involves inserting an artificial screw made of titanium into your jawbone, which is then capped by a prosthesis crown-shaped into the missing tooth. As we mentioned above, dental implants are a major procedure that requires consultation, careful planning and a certified dental professional to perform.
To conclude, these are just some of the most common dental procedures that are performed in most professional dental offices. Dental procedures – especially major treatments like implants and root canals – can be costly to perform as they require a certified professional to perform safely. Therefore, we always recommend you maintain your oral hygiene before it’s too late! We recommend scheduling a visit to the dentist once every 6 months for a checkup and cleaning.
