Paedodontic dentistry covers the age range from babies all the way to adolescents. The Canadian Dental Association President recently stated children should see the dentist prior to being one year of age. In fact, it is recommended that a child visit the dentist six months after the appearance of a first tooth or at the latest, by their first birth date.
Dentistry for children
It's important to visit your dentist when your baby is under the age of one so you can discuss common issues such as pacifiers, thumb sucking, diet counseling, injury prevention, use of toothpaste and proper care of gums and teeth. It also allows for early determination of tooth decay, right instruction around dental health care habits and information on growth and development.
Your dentist will be happy to take the time to educate you about dental health care, habits and routines for children. When proper habits are set early, dental health care for children can lead to a long life of having a healthy mouth.
Restorative dentistry is about procedures that restore damaged teeth.
Tooth colored fillings (known as composite fillings) are created to closely match the existing color of your teeth. Composite fillings blend well with the natural appearance of your existing teeth which makes them less noticeable than traditional materials like silver. With this technique, a state-of-the-art light system is used to harden the filling material for the cavity space.
Modern composite fillings are quite strong and are aesthetically pleasing because they blend with the natural color of the tooth. Through regular maintenance and dental care, a filling can last as long as a natural tooth.
Are Implants the best choice for me?
A dental implant procedure involves a titanium based anchor to secure a replacement tooth permanently in place. Implants provide a strong foundation for fixed (permanent) or removable replacement teeth. They are custom-made to match your natural teeth andare meant to fill the space where a tooth has been extracted. With modern advancements and dental health improvements, implants are a great alternative to partial or full dentures. Just as comfortable as natural teeth, they allow you to chew and talk effortlessly.
Planning the position and number of implants required
Implant work is done with a skilled dental practitioner who specializes in oral surgery. The first step requires several x-rays of the jaw and head to determine suitability for implant surgery. A post is then implanted in the bone which will be used to keep the new tooth in place. Securing the false tooth to the post is completed when the site has successfully healed and the jaw is ready to support the new tooth or teeth.
A patient in general good health with healthy gums and bone is an ideal candidate for dental implants.
Implants last a long time with proper oral health care. They are an innovative way to support a variety of restorative and cosmetic dentistry services. Implant technology is the most comfortable and natural way to restore your bite.
A crown is a form of dental restoration that fully caps over and protects a root canal treatment or dental implant. As part of root canal therapy, crowns are designed to protect the restored tooth by supplying support.
Long term protection and prevention
Dental crowns are generally used for restoration purposes, but are also used in aesthetic procedures where a veneer is not suitable. A dental crown is a tooth shaped "cap" that is placed over a tooth. By covering the tooth,it isable to restore its shape and size, strength, while improving its appearance.While providing support to a tooth’s structure, the crown also improves the overall bite. The crown, when cemented into place, will fully encase the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line.
What is a bridge?
A bridge is a form of dental restoration designed to provide additional support for teeth or implants. Traditionally made out of porcelain and metal, bridges are similar to crowns because they restore areas of the mouth where teeth have been extracted. Removable, a bridge restores the natural bite for ease and comfort while eating. A bridge can be anchored to existing teeth or an implant.
The dentist will recommend the optimum treatment based on the overall condition of your oral health and gums.
