General Dentistry

We have millions of bacteria living in our mouth and some of which produce harmful acids that can destroy soft and hard tissues. General dentistry involves the restoration of these damaged/decayed teeth. The procedures done by highly trained and experienced dentist involved can include fillings, root canals, crowns, bridges, and root canals to help restore function and bite.

Restorative dentistry as part of general dentistry refers to the restoration of decayed, lost or damaged teeth, tissues and gums. It includes a wide range of services: from the replacement of lost teeth to preventive care. Restorative dentistry works well for dental crowns, dental implants, dentures, dental bridges, gum disease, endodontics, TMJ disorders and complete reconstruction of the mouth. Restorative dentistry is ideal for tooth extraction. It is held with replacement teeth and fixed permanently in the jaw, which prevents painful alignment.

Dental Bridges:
“Dental bridges” is a technique of dental restoration that generally consists of two important components: the replacement of dental bridges and crowns. The dental crowns are attached to both sides of the replacement tooth (also known as politics). In this procedure, the replacement tooth is placed over the missing tooth stain and the dental crowns are attached to the adjacent natural teeth or dental implants. Therefore, a bridge consisting of a replacement tooth and crowns is created to cover an empty place when the adjacent teeth are used as a support for the bridge or a replacement tooth. That is why it is known as the dental bridge. The repair process protects decayed or damaged teeth, strengthening the jaw and strengthening it. It is economical, convenient and highly efficient. Prevents tissue infection and tooth loss. It is tender, swollen or bleeding gums.

Full Coverage Crowns:
The crown is a lid that fits over the tooth to restore its original shape and strength. The crowns can be made of an alloy of the metal, stainless steel, ceramic or porcelain, and can be used if a tooth is too damaged by decay to support the filling. Porcelain is more discreet than metal or silver and can be molded easily according to the appearance of natural teeth for an impeccable appearance. Crowns can be especially useful for children whose teeth are severely damaged by the baby’s bottle and can not maintain the filling. The crown will serve to strengthen and preserve the tooth until it falls naturally, leaving space for the secondary tooth.

Tooth Colored Fillings:
White resin fillings are just dental fillings that restore and protect damaged teeth. They also replace unattractive metallic fillers. The best part or advantage of dental fillings is that they look the same as your natural teeth. Occasionally, patients feel embarrassed when the metal filler is visible, however, with these types of fillers, patients can be relaxed. The damage we cause to our teeth can only be eliminated by such dental procedures in general dentistry.

The main advantage that can be obtained with the help of white fillings is the aesthetic finish of the restoration. The restorative material is available in many different shades to adapt to the tone of the tooth, which must be restored, thus providing excellent aesthetics, which is impossible when materials such as amalgam or gold are used.

The improved resistance of dental fillings has led to better fracture resistance, especially in fillings that do not have significant tooth support. Therefore, fillings that use restorative materials of tooth colour seem to have a better life than materials such as amalgam or gold.
