Root Canals and Dental Health

Endodontic therapy, also known as root canal therapy, is a treatment sequence for the infected pulp of a tooth which results in the elimination of infection and the protection of the decontaminated tooth from future microbial invasion.

A root canal is a treatment used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or becomes infected. During a root canal procedure, the nerve and pulp are removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed. Without treatment, the tissue surrounding the tooth will become infected and abscesses may form.

"Root canal" is the term used to describe the natural cavity within the center of the tooth. The pulp or pulp chamber is the soft area within the root canal. The tooth's nerve lies within the root canal.

Why Does Tooth Pulp Need to Be Removed

When a tooth's nerve tissue or pulp is damaged, it breaks down and bacteria begin to multiply within the pulp chamber. The bacteria and other decayed debris can cause an infection. An abscess is a pus-fil

Dental porcelain veneers

Dental veneers or porcelain veneers are custom made wafer thin shells designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size, or length.

Dental veneers can be made from porcelain or from resin composite materials. Porcelain veneers resist stains better than resin veneers and better mimic the light reflecting properties of natural teeth. You will need to discuss the best choice of veneer material for you with your dentist.

Getting a dental veneer usually requires three trips to the dentist – one for a consultation and two to make and apply the veneers. One tooth or many teeth can simultaneously undergo the veneering process

Diagnosis and treatment planning -This first step involves your active participation. Explain to your dentist the result that you are trying to achieve, your dentist will examine your teeth to make sure dental veneers are appropriate for you and possibly make imp

Mercury-Free Restorations

Metal crowns and fillings have held a typical place in dentistry for quite a long time.However, now you have an alternative means for restorations. With metal-free restorations, you’ll enjoy the benefits of a more natural appearance.

Metal-free crowns and fillings give you the most realistic natural appearance. Instead of being made from metal, the fillings and crowns are made from a composite or ceramic material that closely resembles your tooth. Porcelain can even be stained to perfectly match your teeth, giving you a beautiful smile.

In addition to mimicking the natural appearance of your teeth, metal-free fillings also don’t contain mercury. While the American Academy of Dentistry sates levels of mercury in metal fillings is minimal and can be considered “safe” for use, many remain concerned about using mercury in fillings. With composite fillings, this fear is resolved as the composite resin is completely free of all metals. This also makes them the perfect option for those who

WHAT AND WHY DENTAL CROWNS ?

The anatomy of a tooth can be divided into two basic parts -- the root and the crown. The crown is the part of the tooth visible in the mouth, above the gum line on lower teeth and below the gum line on upper teeth. A cemented restoration that partially or completely covers the outside of the tooth is referred to as a dental crown.

Dental crown is a fixed prosthetic device which is used to cap the damaged tooth. It not only protects the tooth, but also enhances the appearance, shape and alignment. These Dental crown, when cemented into place, fully encase the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line. There are a variety of situations that require a tooth to be restored with a dental crown.

The following are the most common:

Large filling: When a tooth has a cavity or fracture that involves half the width of the tooth or more, it needs to be covered with a crown.

Root canal: Root canal treatment leaves the tooth hollowed out and predisposes the remaining

Importance of Crown after Root Canal
