Untreated gum disease will lead to destruction of supporting tissue around the tooth. This will lead to bone loss, gingival recession and pocket formation. There are a lot of etiological factors for periodontal disease but the most common reason being local factors like the tartar build up. Apart from through daily brushing and flossing, regular professional clean by dentist or hygienist can help keep the disease under control. Uncontrolled periodontal disease will lead to loss of teeth. Certain medical conditions like diabetes can influence the progression of gum disease.
Cosmetic dentistry combines various fields of dentistry as discussed to improve the appearance of the teeth. This can be done in a combination of restorations, crown/veneers, orthodontics and teeth whitening.
It's the first thing people notice about you — and when you feel good about it, it shows. Philips Zoom gives you the radiant results you want with a variety of whitening options to fit your lifestyle. And when it comes to whitening — like with everything having to do with your smile — your dentist is your best resource. That's why only dental professionals have access to the professional-strength whitening of Philips Zoom.
Restorative dentistry comprises of repairing and restoring damaged teeth. This can range from simple fillings which can be done using various materials or more complex restorations like crown and bridge work and implant restorations. These procedures stabilise the tooth and improve your biting capacity and function. If a tooth has been missing as a result of extraction or other reasons, it can be replaced with dental implants, fixed bridge or a removable denture. It is important to replace a missing tooth as it may otherwise have other long term consequences of teeth drifting into the space, loss of function and difficulty to maintain migrated teeth which may lead to decay or gum problems.
When the pulp of the tooth is infected, extracting the tooth is one of the options. This may be opted by the patient either due to financial reasons or personal choice. Sometimes this may be recommended by the dentist if the tooth is unrestorable. Consideration has to be given to the consequences of unreplaced missing tooth and the cost of replacing a missing tooth before deciding to get the tooth extracted.
If the decay involves the pulp of the tooth, it would need root canal treatment (endodontic treatment) to keep your natural tooth. There is no close replacement alternative to a natural tooth and hence all efforts must be put to save your natural tooth. This involves removing infected tissues in a sequence of steps and filling the roots. Essentially, after the treatment it is a dead and disinfected tooth. Where possible, this would be the better alternative compared to the extraction and replacement with an artificial tooth.
