What are inlays and onlays?

Dental Restorations
When the biting surface of the back tooth needs a restoration, the best choice is often an inlay or onlay made of resin. The resin material is a mixture of acrylic resin and microscopic particles that is shaped and cured for strength. The dentist may recommend an inlay or onlay depending on how much tooth structure has been lost. An inlay fits within the grooves of a tooth biting surface, like a filling. An onlay also covers one or more cusps of the tooth. Both kinds of restorations are precision crafted in a dental laboratory, so it may take one or more appointments to restore your tooth with a resin [...]

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 [...]

Problems with amalgam fillings

Dental Restorations
The human mouth in its ideal form: no cavities, fillings or sign of dental disease. Unfortunately, most of the time, the teeth have dark, unsightly, silver fillings. Now, are available dental restorations called resin fillings. This type of fillings can replace dark silver fillings and can make your teeth look beautiful and natural. In the past, when an old filling worn out or you had a cavity your only option was to have another silver filling. But silver fillings have some drawbacks. The edges of the fillings undergo metal fatigue, and they begin to break down. As they age, silver fillings can sometimes [...]

Dental Restorations
A cavity may appear below the gum tissue and is often only revealed with x – rays. It is not possible to restore these cavities since the gums prevent access. A solution for this problem starts with the raising of a flap. Different instruments, including the dentist’s drill are used to reduce the bone height and this new bone architecture is prepared to support the gums in a lower position at the root of the tooth. The new bone topography must follow all the previous picks and valleys. The gums are then repositioned on the prepared bone which now supports the gums below the cavity. The cavity can now be [...]

When a tooth is painful due to decay or the nerves become inflamed, a sedative filling can soothe and protect the tooth before the final restoration. Sedative fillings often contain oil of eugenol, which is a mild pain reliever and zinc oxide which has some disinfectant properties. At first, the area is numb in order for you to feel more comfortable. The dentist may use a rubber dam to protect your mouth while he or she is working. Then, the dentist will remove any decay and shape the tooth with a handpiece. Then, the dentist will place the filling material. The filling material will adjust when you bite [...]
