IMPLANTS. ALL ON 4

Dental Implants are artificial tooth replacements that were first developed about half a century ago by a Swedish scientist named Per-Ingvar Branemark out of a real need of patients to secure their loose-fitting dentures. Since then, the knowledge and engineering of implants has enabled dentists and their patients to expand their usefulness in many ways that was once not possible including replacing missing or lost tooth.

RESTORATIVE DENTISTRY

The concept of “filling” is replacing and restoring tooth structure that is removed due to decay or fracture with a material. With today’s technology, you no longer have to suffer the embarrassment of unsightly and unhealthy silver/mercury fillings or metal margins of the past. Space-age, state-of-the-art, tooth-colored resin or porcelain adhesive materials are used to replace dark, looking amalgam fillings.

ENDODONTICS

Endodontics is the dental specialty that deals with the nerves of the teeth. Root canals are probably the most notorious procedure in dentistry and the most common procedure relating to endodontics. When a tooth becomes infected it is usually related to the nerves in the root of the tooth. The infected nerves need to be removed. If left untreated an infection can turn into an abscess, which is a much more serious problem that includes bone loss in the jaw.

PERIO / ORAL SURGERY

Periodontal (gum) disease is insidious. It is an infection of the gums that starts out as plaque, an opaque film on the teeth that hardens to form tartar. As tartar accumulates, it harbors bacteria that attack the soft tissue around the gums. This is the early stage of gum disease known as Gingivitis. Left untreated, Gingivitis becomes Periodontitis which ultimately destroys the tissue surrounding your teeth AND the bone that holds your teeth in place. Except for bad breath and gums that bleed, there are very few early warning signals. The disease advances silently, often without pain, and before you know it, you are losing your teeth and you don’t know why.

SLEEP APNEA

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) occurs when the soft tissue in a person’s throat repeatedly collapses and blocks the airway during sleep.

These partial reductions and complete pauses in breathing typically last between 10 and 30 seconds, but can persist for one minute or longer. These pauses can happen hundreds of times a night, leading to abrupt reductions in blood oxygen levels.

The brain alerts the body to its lack of oxygen, causing a brief arousal from sleep that restores normal breathing. The result is a fragmented quality of sleep that often leads to excessive daytime sleepiness.

DENTURES

Full and partial dentures are needed when all or some of the teeth have been lost and all extraction sites have healed (up to eight weeks or longer.) The denture process takes about two months and four – six appointments.
After the initial diagnosis is made; an impression and a wax bite are made to determine proper jaw position; a “try-in” is placed to assure proper color, shape and fit; and the patient’s final denture is placed, following any minor adjustments.
