An abscess forms when the pus has nowhere to drain. In the following material is presented the drainage of an abscess that has 2 cm in diameter. The abscess is located on the palate. The dentist that makes the procedure will make an incision at the abscess in order to speed its drainage The fluid inside the abscess will be [...]
What is a soft tissue graft? video

What is a soft tissue graft?

Periodontology
Soft tissue graft is also known as gingival graft. Soft tissue graft is a procedure that allows the dentist to correct gums that are pulled away from the tooth and are exposing the root surface. The lengthening of the teeth can really age a person smile. If left uncorrected, the loss of protective gum tissue may also lead to more severe gum problems along the way. With grafting, the dentist can restore the attractive look of the gums. Healthy gums are snagged against the teeth and the roots don’t show. The first step in placing a graft is to thoroughly numb the involved areas. Then the graft is taken [...]
What is pulpotomy in children? video

What is pulpotomy in children?

Pediatric Dentistry
Pulpotomy is a type of dentistry treatment. Pulpotomy is performed when tooth decay progresses to involve the pulp or nerve of baby tooth. Pulpotomy helps retain the baby tooth until the permanent tooth takes its place. This procedure is a very simple one. During pulpotomy, tooth decay and the infected nerve tissue in the crown portion of the tooth are removed. Then, the dentist will place a sedative dressing over the uninfected tissue in the roots. The pulp chamber is then filled with a composite or amalgam filling. After that, the dentist will prepare the tooth for a crown. The prefabricated [...]
How is root canal therapy performed? video

How is root canal therapy performed?

Dental Therapy
Root canal treatment begins with a standard drill to access the inside of the tooth. Slower speed round drills can then be used to remove decay and to expose the canals. Tiny files are then used to remove the contents of these canals. The manual method of root canal treatment involves using increasing files sizes that gently clean and shape these canals. A tooth may have one or more canals. Using the manual treatment method of filling the canals involves checking the cone size and placing rubber cones covered with liquid sealer into the canals. Once enough cones have been placed, spreading instruments [...]
Core build – up video

Core build – up

Dental Therapy
Sometimes, when a tooth is broken due to fracture or decay, there is simply not enough tooth remaining to place a crown. Fortunately, there is a way to replace the missing portion of the tooth. By bonding one of the new plastic resin filling material, and building the tooth back up prior to preparing it for a crown. The first step in placing a bonded build up is to make sure that the tooth is free of decay. A mild etching is placed to prepare the tooth for bonding and then the resin filling material layer upon layer and hardened with a high intensity light. Building a tooth prior to a crown: - [...]

What is bruxism?

Dental Therapy
Bruxism is the clenching or grinding of the teeth, which often occurs when a person is sleeping. When you bruxe, the force of your teeth is many times greater that during normal chewing. These forces can cause: - flattened or worn down teeth, - teeth chipped at the gum line - fractured teeth - loose teeth - damage to the jawbone or the jaw joints You may also notice some of the symptoms of the bruxism such as: - a sore, tired jaw - difficulty in opening and closing - sensitive teeth - earaches - headaches - pain in your jaw joints You may also notice no symptoms at all. Though all of the [...]

What is a dental abscess?

Dental Therapy
A dental abscess is a collection of puss that can form in the teeth or the gums as a result of a bacterial infection. How these occur? Your tooth is made up of a hard white protective layer, the enamel. This covers and protects a soft yellow tissue called dentine. At the very center of the tooth is the soft pulp where blood vessels and nerves are found. Your tooth is attached to the jaw by a strong ligament called the periodontal ligament. Bacteria are found in plaque which is a bind product of food and saliva. Plaque bacteria produce acid which makes holes in the enamel, that eventually reach the [...]
Gum recession treatment video

Gum recession treatment

Periodontology
A symmetrical gum line contributes to an attractive looking smile. Healthy gums form a tight seal around your teeth, to protect your teeth and bones from the entry of harmful bacteria. However, over time, the gums may begin to recede for a variety of reasons. This recession is commonly associated with both bone loss and tissue loss. This can significantly expose a tooth root, creating an uneven gum line. The tooth may also appear to be longer than the neighboring teeth and ma become the focal point of attention. More importantly, the exposed root surfaces places the tooth at an increased risk for tooth [...]
What are partial dentures? video

What are partial dentures?

Dental Restorations
This movie demonstrates the replacement of several posterior teeth with a partial denture. After extraction, the tissue will atrophy. For best support and fit, small preparations are made on the teeth. These are called rests. The rests are very small and shallow and the teeth that are adjacent to the missing tooth space are prepared. The partial denture replaces the teeth and the atrophied gums on both sides and the two sides are connected by a thin metal bar. These tooth supported dentures have metal extensions that fit perfectly into the rest preparation. Therefore, the denture rests on the [...]
What are dental sealants? video

What are dental sealants?

Dental Therapy
Dental sealants are thin plastic coatings that are applied to the grooves on the chewing surfaces Deep pits and fissures are the source of some 80 % of tooth cavities. This is mainly because food and bacterial plaque lodge in these tight crevasses that are often inaccessible to toothbrush bristles. Plaque acids and enzymes at the base of these grooves cause the tooth enamel to dissolve, eventually leading to cavities. Dental sealants and fissurotomy techniques may help protect against these types of cavities. This animation opens by describing the epidemic nature of pit & fissure cavities, and the impetus [...]
