A rapidly emerging field of dentistry is referred to as cosmetic dentistry. In cosmetic dentistry, the emphasis is on improving the patient’s smile through changing the appearance of the teeth and mouth.
When a single tooth is lost, other teeth surrounding it may begin to shift, resulting in an unsightly appearance. Many patients seek dental implants as a means of improving cosmetic appearance.
Dental Crowns & Bridges
A crown (cap) is a restoration that is placed on teeth that have lost a lot of their structure. Bridges are fully customizable and made of various materials, including porcelain and metals.
Sealants are thin layers of resin that are placed on the pits, fissures, and grooves of molars to prevent decay on these surfaces, which are one of the most effective methods for this reason.
Though many advances have been made in the field of dentistry, loss of teeth is still an ongoing problem. In the United States, 26% of adults between the ages of sixty-five and seventy-five have lost all of their teeth.
TMJ is the joint that connects the lower and upper jaw. The term TMJ stands for Temporo-mandibular Joint. Some common treatments are Night Guards, Bite Guards, and Bite Adjustments.
