Teeth's cleaning is a part of oral hygiene and involves the removal of dental plaque from teeth with the intention of preventing cavities and gum diseases.
Most people need at least one dental filling in their lifetime. Fillings are most commonly used to treat cavities. They’re also used to repair cracked or broken teeth, or teeth that have been worn down over time. At Cure ‘N’ Care , we use all the latest techniques and equipment to help make the experience as comfortable as possible. And once your treatment is complete, we’ll talk you through how to keep a healthy mouth in the future.
Most people have fillings of one sort or another in their mouths. Nowadays fillings can be natural looking, as well as doing the job they're meant to do. Many people don't want silver fillings that show when they laugh or smile because they are more conscious about the way they look.
White fillings have always been considered less long lasting than silver amalgam fillings. But there are now new materials available with properties comparable to silver amalgam, and these are proving to be very successful. The life expectancy of a white filling can depend greatly on where it is in your mouth and how heavily our teeth come together when you bite.
Sealants are a safe and painless way of protecting your children’s teeth from decay. A sealant is a protective plastic coating, which is applied to the biting surfaces of the back teeth. The sealant forms a hard shield that keeps food and bacteria from getting into the tiny grooves in the teeth and causing decay.
If tooth decay progresses unchecked, the tooth may eventually rot away to the root and the tooth will have to be extracted (removed).
Early tooth decay does not tend to show many physical signs. Sometimes the tooth looks healthy, but your dentist will be able to see from an x-ray (radiograph) whether you have any decay present under the enamel, any possible infections in the roots, or any bone loss around the tooth. X-rays can help the dentist to see in between your teeth or under the edge of your fillings. Finding and treating dental problems at an early stage can save both time and money.
In children, x-rays can be used to show where the second teeth are and when they will come through. This also applies to adults when the wisdom teeth start to come through.
People wear dentures to replace lost or missing teeth so they can enjoy a healthy diet and smile with confidence. Dentures are made of either acrylic (plastic) or metal.
A 'complete' or 'full' denture is one which replaces all the natural teeth in either the upper or lower jaw.
A 'partial' denture fills in the spaces left by lost or missing teeth. It may be fastened to your natural teeth with metal clasps or 'precision attachments'.
Implant retained fixed dentures
For people who don’t want to take their dentures out every day, non-removable implant supported dentures is the best option.
This treatment requires more implants than a removable implant denture. The denture is screwed onto the implants. The final result is a much more natural looking set of teeth. Normal chewing forces are completely restored, and you never have to take your teeth out!
