Endodontics is a dental specialty that specializes in studying and treating the dental pulp. While general dentists can treat most tooth-related issues, when advanced issues with root canals arise they will refer patients to endodontists who specialize in endodontic therapy and root canals to save teeth that would otherwise be lost to deep decay, fractures or cracks or trauma damage. These specialists typically complete two to three years of additional training specifically related to this field and may help save teeth that otherwise would have been lost without them.
If your tooth is painful or infected, endodontist surgery can save it and relieve your discomfort. The procedure involves extracting inflamed or infected tissue before cleaning and shaping its interior before sealing it back up again before returning it to your dentist for restoration, typically a dental crown.
Endodontists specialize in providing other procedures that enhance the look of your smile, such as crown lengthening and scaling and root planing. Dental crown lengthening can correct an overly “gummy” smile while scaling and root planing are preventive measures designed to lessen your risk of periodontal disease by thoroughly cleansing pockets around your teeth.
Dental implants provide an effective tooth replacement option for people missing one or multiple teeth. With superior durability and stability compared to bridges or dentures, implants allow a person to chew and speak normally while also improving chewing ability and speaking clarity. Dental implants can help people recover their ability to chew or speak normally after suffering trauma, disease or tooth decay damage to their natural teeth. These permanent restorations are available as permanent solutions.
Your oral surgeon will conduct a comprehensive exam to ascertain your eligibility for dental implants, using X-rays and 3D cone beam CT scans to assess your jawbone structure and the presence of enough bone support for implants. If not enough bone exists to support them, synthetic material grafts may be added prior to implant placement and healing is allowed before implant placement occurs.
An implant consists of three elements: a titanium post, an abutment and crown. Titanium is an antimicrobial metal that integrates well with bones through osseointegration – which accounts for most implants today made out of this material. Other materials have also been explored but none has proven as durable or secure as titanium in terms of performance or durability.
Dental implant procedures are typically performed under local anesthesia to minimize discomfort during surgery. If using IV sedation, however, be sure to pack snacks as you will not be able to eat afterward; additionally it would be a wise idea to bring along toothbrushes and toothpaste in case they’re needed afterward.
Once your dental implant has healed, we will arrange regular appointments to assess its status. At these visits, we will examine the area around your implant for signs of infection or complications; failure to detect them early could result in more serious issues that necessitate the extraction of an implant and potentially other teeth.
Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps used to cover damaged or decayed teeth and serve as an effective restorative dental solution. Dental crowns look and feel just like natural teeth while protecting the underlying tooth from further damage or decay, and can even correct cosmetic issues like crookedness or discoloration.
There are various types of crowns, depending on the material used and patient preferences. Feldspathic porcelain crowns provide a classic translucent appearance and can be attached directly to tooth surfaces or overlaid on zirconia core-only crowns designed for increased strength by computer milling from solid blocks of zirconia on CAD/CAM machines; while zirconia core-only crowns have their core milled out using computer designed and milling technology that offers an opaque color that may not look as lifelike.
Before receiving a crown, your dentist will prepare the tooth by numbing its surroundings and extracting any old or failing restorations or decayed areas, then reshaping the tooth for room for it. A temporary crown may then be put in place until your permanent one arrives – however it’s important not to chew hard or sticky foods on this temporary crown, as doing so could crack or break it.
A crown’s lifespan depends on how it is cared for. Good oral hygiene practices and regular visits to your dentist for professional dental exams will extend its life, as will staying away from behavior that could damage it such as teeth clenching/grinding (bruxism). Wearing a mouthguard while sleeping is an effective way to protect both you and your crowns against heavy forces that could shorten its lifespan and increase its lifespan.
If you’re missing one or more teeth, a dental bridge can fill in any empty gaps and restore your smile. A traditional bridge typically consists of one or more false teeth sandwiched between two crowns called abutments; these supporting teeth could either be natural teeth on either side of the gap, or implants. Our Greater Jacksonville FL dentist can customize a bridge specifically to replace one missing tooth or several consecutive ones.
Missing teeth can create serious health complications, from chewing difficulties to tooth decay and making speech more difficult, all the way through to altering the appearance of your smile. Unfortunately, not all gaps can be filled using dental implants; otherwise they will shift into that space causing your bite to shift and lead to health complications like gum disease.
A bridge can be constructed using various materials, such as gold, alloys, and porcelain; our dentists will help select the most suitable option based on factors like your desired length of wear time and naturalness of appearance. In the first visit, your abutment teeth will be prepared by trimming down adjacent teeth to prepare them for crowns; impressions will then be taken to create a model showing how your false replacement teeth (pontics) will fit into your mouth.
