What does full mouth debridement means?

Dental Therapy
When heavy plaque and tartar deposits have build up on your teeth, the dentist will often recommend a procedure called full mouth debridement in order to remove them. Plaque is the sticky colorless film of food and bacteria that constantly forms on your teeth. If it’s not removed every day, plaque hardens into tartar and over time, plaque and tartar build up on your teeth. A heavy build up of plaque and tartar can make it difficult for the dentist to examine your teeth and gingival tissue. It is also important to remove the accumulation of plaque and tartar because they are the main cause of tooth decay [...]

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 [...]

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 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 [...]
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 [...]

Root canal therapy

Dental Therapy
Root canal therapy is in general a comfortable treatment that can save your tooth and keep your mouth healthy. When the pulp of a tooth becomes infected or dies, root canal therapy is necessary to save the tooth. The pulp is a soft tissue made up of nerves and blood vessels. It’s contained in the pulp chamber which extends from the middle of the tooth down through root canals. It becomes infected when bacteria invades the pulp. This happens most commonly through a deep cavity which allows bacteria through the enamel and dentin layers and into the tooth. Sometimes, the pulp simply dies due to a fracture. You [...]
