Dentiste Longueuil is a dental clinic that has been providing high-quality dental services to patients for many years. We provide both preventive and restorative treatments to help you maintain your oral health.
When it comes time to restore teeth with dentistry, people must consider many things before selecting treatment options. Our dentists provide an overview of what needs restoring, why it needs restoring and the different treatment options available to them when choosing their care plan, including metal fillings or composite fillings.
Restorations are the numerous methods by which our dentist may replace or repair your lost teeth or missing elements of your tooth structure, as well as components that must be removed to avoid deterioration that may cause you discomfort in the future.
What Sorts of Problems Can Dental Restorations Help With?
Tooth structures may be lost due to decay, degeneration (weakening) of a previously installed restoration, or fracture of your tooth. These issues can be resolved with dental restorations.
Type of Dental Restorations
The following are some examples of restorations:
The most frequent kind of dental repair is a filling. They use gold, silver amalgam, or tooth-coloured plastic and glass materials called composite resin fillings to fix cavities in your teeth.
Teeth-shaped “caps,” crowns are placed over a tooth to restore its shape and size, strength and appearance; to fasten a “bridge” (fixed partial denture) or to cover a dental implant, or to cover an implant.
For the crown to correctly restore the tooth’s size and shape, teeth are often reduced uniformly around the tooth. A temporary filling or crown may be placed in the meanwhile while the impression is sent to the lab.
Some dental clinics employ a milling machine to create a crown in the office, frequently in only one visit, using a digital impression sent to the milling machine.
Implants are tiny metal posts (typically titanium or a titanium combination) inserted into the bone socket where teeth are missing. The implant may require an abutment, which functions similarly to a crown preparation. The crown is then placed on top of it.
Bridges (also known as fixed partial dentures) are artificial teeth that are used to fill up the space left by missing teeth. Crowns can be used to permanently anchor bridges on each side.
Porcelain, gold, alloys, or a combination of these materials can be used to construct bridges.
In the case of lost teeth and tissues, dentures can be removed and replaced. Gum disease, tooth decay, or trauma are all possible causes of missing teeth. They’re made of acrylic resin and sometimes have metal components attached to them. To replace all the teeth, complete dentures are worn.
Metal clasps attached to the original teeth are used to hold partial dentures in place when some natural teeth remain.
Dentures are divided into three categories: conventional, immediate, and overdenture.
Traditional dentures can be taken out and replaced with new ones. Several months after the remaining teeth are removed, and the surrounding tissues have healed, it is implanted. It is also possible to remove an immediate denture.
Implants are inserted on the same day as your last tooth extraction. There are times when an overdenture is necessary. Implants, tooth fragments, and dentures can all be used to support this denture type.
