Dental implants are becoming an increasingly popular method for replacing missing teeth. In this procedure, titanium supports are surgically fused with your jawbone, and act as an anchor for naturally looking false teeth. Dental implants are not only used for individual tooth replacement, but can also be used when replacing multiple teeth as an alternative to dentures.
Dental implants are not only used for individual tooth replacement but can also be used when replacing multiple teeth as an alternative to dentures. Mini implants can be a treatment option if limited bone is available. They can also be less involved than traditional implants or serve as a temporary or transitional option during healing phases.
The mini dental implant procedure is a much less involved process than conventional dental implants. Today, use of this non-surgical technology has been expanded for anything from replacing a single tooth to a full mouth restoration. Several different types of implants and restorations are available. The choice depends on the amount of bone available, the patient's general health and restoration preference.
Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy, also known as endodontic treatment, is a dental procedure performed by our West Palm Beach dentist that involves the removal of infected or damaged tissue from the innermost part of the tooth known as the pulp. The pulp contains blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue that help to nourish and support the tooth. When the pulp becomes infected or damaged due to decay, trauma, or other factors, it can cause severe pain and lead to further dental problems.
Routine dental cleanings are important to maintaining good oral hygiene. Professional cleaning by a hygienist can remove mineralized plaque that may develop even with careful brushing and flossing, particularly in areas that are difficult to reach. It is recommended you go in for a cleaning once every six months.
Dental Exams And X-rays
Dental exams and x-rays are essential for maintaining good oral health. Regular dental exams can help detect any issues early on, allowing for prompt treatment and preventing more serious problems from developing. X-rays, in particular, are an important diagnostic tool that can help identify problems that may not be visible to the naked eye.
