Dental braces are devices used by orthodontists to correct the alignment of teeth. Braces put pressure on the teeth to straighten them and make them line up with how your jaw closes.
Bridges and implants
There are two common procedures that dentists use to replace missing teeth. A dental bridge is a false tooth that is put between two other teeth. This can only be used if there are natural teeth on both sides of the missing tooth. Dental implants are metal frames that are put into the gum to hold a replacement tooth.
Crowns and caps
Patna dentists fit different types of caps and crowns over a tooth that has been damaged, broken, or misshaped. Crowns are usually made to the shape and size of the tooth and can be made of metal, acrylic, porcelain, or porcelain bonded to metal.
Fillings and repairs
Dental doctors remove the decayed material from a tooth and fill the hole with a material like metal, silver, or amalgam. Fillings can also be used to fix a cracked or broken tooth.
Periodontitis is a gum infection that can cause inflammation and damage to your gums and jaw bone. The dental treatment for this disease may require surgery to remove tartar and bacteria from your tooth and from under your gums.
Oral cancer screening
The dentist will check for red or white patches inside your mouth during an oral cancer screening exam. This is to check if you have cancer in your mouth, throat, or tongue. The dentist will also look for mouth sores, irregular tissue changes in your neck, head, face, and inside your mouth.
Root canal is a procedure used to treat a tooth that is infected or inflamed. The dentist will open the tooth, clean out the inside of the tooth, and then shape and disinfect the root canal. They will then seal up the opening of the tooth so it does not get infected in the future.
The color of our teeth darkens over time due to several factors such as eating and drinking certain things, getting older, smoking, and drinking. The outside layer of our teeth gets thinner over time, so the yellowish dentin shows through more. Dentists use special gels and lamps to whiten teeth.
