A dental implant is a titanium post (like a tooth root) that is surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath the gum line that allows your dentist to mount replacement teeth or bridge into that area. An implant doesn't come loose like a denture can. Dental implants also benefit general oral health because they do not have to be anchored to other teeth, like bridges.
A dental implant can do wonders for self-esteem, because it feels and looks like a normal tooth. Many people who were shy about smiling because of a space from a lost tooth feel more comfortable after a dental implant. Beyond the aesthetics, a dental implant also makes it easier to eat and speak, because a titanium post secured directly in the jaw holds the implant in place.
A complete denture may be 'Conventional' or 'immediate'. A conventional denture is made after the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has healed, usually taking 4-6 weeks. During this time, the patient will go without teeth. Immediate dentures are made in advance and immediately placed after the teeth are removed, thus preventing the patient from having to be without teeth during the healing process. Once the tissues shrink and heal, adjustments will have to be made.
Another alternative is Implant supported denture that is supported by and attached to implants. It allows you to wear full or partial dentures without worrying that they will slip or fall out.
It is a procedure where a badly decayed or fractured or dead tooth is saved by removing its soft part (pulp) from the crown & the root of the tooth. Pulp is located in the core of the crown & root of the tooth. It is like mummifying a dead tooth to preserve it.
We, at Jeet Dental Clinic, by Root canal treatment, allows your tooth to remain in your mouth even though it is "dead". Thus, we can safely and comfortably save your tooth that otherwise would have to be removed. A crown must be placed on a tooth with a root canal due to the fact that the tooth no longer is receiving nutrients/blood supply and it has been weakened by a large cavity or hole. The tooth will become brittle over time making it more susceptible to fracture. Remember, a healthy restored tooth is always better than an artificial one.
There are 2 types-
A denture is a removable dental plate replacing missing teeth. They are made closely to resemble your natural teeth and may even enhance your smile. It improves your chewing, speech and digestion.
There are 2 types of removable dentures- 'Complete and Partial'. Complete dentures are used when all of the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth are missing. A partial denture not only fills in the spaces created by missing teeth, it prevents the other teeth from shifting.

Missing teeth can be replaced in a variety of ways. You may be a candidate for any one or all of them, depending on the circumstances. Implants are becoming the treatment of choice for a number of reasons. Most significant among these is the expected longevity, strength and stability offered by current implant treatment, as well as the predictability of implant treatment with current technologies. Listed below are common treatment options for missing teeth.

Did you ever have the feeling that people have avoided talking to you face to face? There is bleeding while you brush? Teeth that are sensitive to hot or cold? And many more problems like red, swollen, receding gums or mobile teeth?
The only culprits for these are bacteria seated in your gums.
Gum disease is an infection of the tissue surrounding and supported the teeth. It is a silent, chronic and painless infection that goes untreated or ignored until it has caused severe destruction. Other important factors affecting the health of your gums includes smoking, diabetes, stress, grinding teeth, medications, poor nutrition, etc.
A crown is a restoration that covers a tooth in order to strengthen it as well as restore it to its normal shape and size. A crown may be placed to support a large filling when there is little remaining tooth structure, attach a bridge, protect weak teeth from fracturing, or restore fractured teeth.
A tooth that has been treated with root canal therapy will require a crown following treatment to provide strength and support to the tooth. We only use materials for crowns that will provide the longest lasting benefits to our patients.
