Many types of filling materials are available for restoring decayed, chipped, worn, and cracked teeth, as well as spaces between teeth. The most widely used is a white composite resin that can be closely matched to the colour of your existing teeth. As with all dental restorations, composite fillings will last for many years but are not permanent.
A crown is a long-lasting restoration that covers or replaces most of a tooth, restoring it to its original size and shape. Crowns protect and restore strength to broken, heavily filled, and cracked teeth.
At our office, we can provide single-visit crowns using Cerec. This is a technology that utilizes 3D digital imaging and computer-assisted design and fabrication to create an individualized custom-made tooth-coloured ceramic restoration.
Porcelain Fixed Bridges
A dental bridge is a non-removable appliance that is used to replace missing teeth. It can be made of porcelain or porcelain overlying a gold alloy substructure. Bridges provide excellent aesthetics, prevent unwanted tooth movement, and restore chewing and speaking ability.
Dentures and Partial Dentures
A denture is a removable dental appliance that replaces missing teeth and the surrounding tissue. Complete dentures are used when all of the teeth are missing and rest and adhere to the gums. Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. Partial dentures use small clasps to attach to some of the remaining teeth to achieve stability.
Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy is needed when the pulp, the living tissue inside a tooth, is irreversibly damaged or infected. The pulp can become infected by a deep cavity, a large restoration, or trauma to the tooth. In order to save the tooth, the pulp and any bacteria are removed, and the resulting space is filled with a restorative material to prevent re-infection. General dentists do most root canals, but certain cases require a root canal specialist, an endodontist, to complete the therapy. Dr. Caruk will assess your tooth to determine who is best able to restore your tooth.
Regardless of your age, straightening your teeth can help you achieve a beautiful, healthy smile. Modern, patient-friendly treatments make the experience comfortable and rewarding. Straight teeth not only look better, but they are also easier to keep clean and can decrease the incidence of tooth decay, gum disease, and abnormal tooth wear.
When restorative procedures such as root canal therapy, crowns, or fillings are not enough to save a tooth, it may need to be pulled or extracted. Tooth extraction procedures today are less painful than before, with many patients experiencing little discomfort and only minor bleeding. Many extractions can be completed in our office. However, difficult cases, such as wisdom teeth or badly broken teeth, may require referral to an office that can provide sedation.
We want you to join us in the belief that a healthy smile can last a lifetime. Our focus is on prevention. By maintaining proper oral hygiene and receiving regularly scheduled professional dental care, you can decrease the incidence of serious oral health problems. Dr. Caruk considers preventive dentistry as essential to providing you and your family with complete dental care.
What Is Fluoride?
Fluoride is a naturally occurring compound found in soil, water, and some foods. It has been found to help remineralize decalcified enamel surfaces, thereby making your teeth more resistant to decay. Fluoride also decreases the ability of oral bacteria to produce acids in your mouth.
Everyone has had a sensitive tooth at some time. Some of the possible causes are a cavity, a cracked tooth, an abscessed tooth, recent dental cleaning or restoration, following tooth whitening, and exposed dentin. Let us investigate the last cause, exposed dentin.
