Under the restoration of a tooth
Restoration of teeth - which way is the safest?
refers to a variety of treatments, including the installation of fillings, crowns or veneers. Restoration of the tooth is necessary to prevent it from further destruction, loss of teeth and damage to other teeth, as well as to improve the appearance and the ability to return the person to eat normally.
People who are missing or badly broken teeth are potential candidates for tooth restoration.
How exactly does the procedure of restoring the tooth depends on the technology and on the challenges which the patient turned to the dentist. Typically, in the first instance the doctor makes an x-ray of the teeth in order to accurately diagnose. The procedure itself usually begins with the application of a local anesthetic. Often the tooth you want to restore the pre-grind, to make way for devices to be used for recovery.
When a tooth is ready, the doctor puts the fillings, crowns, veneers or strengthens. Crowns and fillings fix a special cement, which then clean off the remains.
Crowns and veneers usually takes one to two weeks.
Within a few hours after the procedure, the patient continues to restore the tooth to feel the effects of anesthesia. Mild pain and discomfort is usually tested in a few days.
How to restore teeth
- Filling - is the most common method of restoring tooth. The seals are made of ceramics, composite resins, amalgam and plastic material - the alloy of various metals (usually silver) and mercury. Because of the feasibility of using mercury amalgam being questioned, but it is still widely used.
- Crowns are used to restore teeth with significant damage to the tooth structure. Temporary crowns are made of acrylic, permanent ceramic and gold. This procedure takes longer than filling, and is more expensive. However, it can be used in cases where due to the extensive destruction of tooth fillings already use impractical.
- Veneers can be used to repair broken teeth. Before installing veneers

grind a thin layer of enamel, the thickness approximately equal to the thickness of the veneers. Then attach to the teeth thin ceramic plate. The main disadvantage of this method is that dental restorations, veneers must be changed, on the average, every 10-15 years.
In some cases, a tooth restoration
Restoration of the tooth is required for its partial or total destruction. The most common cause of tooth decay is tooth decay, injury and disease tissues surrounding the teeth (periodontal).
In any case, before to rebuild the tooth, it is necessary to treat: cut carious hard tissues to treat or remove the soft tissue (pulp) from the cavity of the tooth (which is located inside the crown - part of the tooth situated on the surface) and of the ports located in its root. When inflammation of periodontal (ligament that holds the tooth in the bone cell) - periodontitis and various diseases of the tissues surrounding the teeth is also done their treatment. That is why the restoration of teeth always begins with a visit to a dentist-therapist, who may in some cases itself restore one or more teeth and advise which method of recovery is more suitable in this case.

If broken one or more teeth, that after the treatment the dentist can restore the tooth by means of sealing. Today released the most different filling materials allow to restore the integrity of the tooth so that it will be virtually no different from natural healthy teeth. However, such recovery is only possible in the case where the crown is not completely destroyed. With a significant destruction of the tooth crown dental fillings
Tooth filling - do not fear the dentist
Use the tabs - a special prosthesis, which is applied to the tooth defect.
Dental therapists in conjunction with orthopedic surgeons can repair the tooth even if the crown is completely destroyed, but the root of the tooth intact. In this case, the root of the tooth is inserted into a special pin to which is attached artificial crown is then made in a dental laboratory.
What can the dental surgeon
Oral surgeons to help restore teeth, even if there is no root. They are introduced into the gum special implant that will serve as root. Such implants generally are porous to the periodontal tissue germinated freely therein and held the implant securely in the cell. Once the implant is accustomed in gingival tissues, the work starts prosthodontist that sets artificial crowns on implants.
Implanted teeth are almost indistinguishable from natural, them people does not feel any discomfort. Implanted can be one or more teeth, setting between fixed prosthesis.
The negative side of implantation of teeth is that the implants do not always take root in tissues and to predict what will be the reaction to the implants the body of a specific person, it is practically impossible.
Restoration of teeth in the dentist's office orthopedic
Dentist-orthopedist, of course, is a major specialist in the restoration of teeth. For this purpose, after the spent dental therapist treatment or tooth extraction dental surgeon performed prosthetics
Fundamentals of prosthetics - not just for the elderly
using fixed and removable prostheses. It is thin and hard work: orthopedic picks up view of the prosthesis, takes casts of dental system, sends it to the dental laboratory and then sets of dentures and customize it under the system of the patient's dentition. Equally important is the well-equipped dental laboratory with experienced dental technicians.
Removable prosthesis is performed in cases where one or more broken teeth and the prosthesis remains in the mouth a person always, as long as it will not remove the dentist. For fixed prostheses include:
- dental tab (the same shape of the tooth), veneers (very thin plastic porcelain or ceramic metal which is glued on the front teeth), polukoronki (they cover the crown on three sides, leaving free-lingual) and artificial crowns - they are used in full or partial destruction of a tooth, as well as to change the shape or position;
- cantilever bridges and dentures; to establish a bridge, you need to prepare (grind in a special way), two neighboring tooth decay - artificial crowns are placed on the teeth, is under bridges; a console mounted in the prosthesis if required only one support (e.g., if the destroyed tooth is the end tooth of the series).
Removable denture can be used in the absence of a few teeth, and when fully edentulous jaw. Dentures are divided into laminar and arc.
Laminar prosthesis consists of a plastic plate, which replicates the adjacent surface of the mucosa and the teeth side surfaces, to which they overlap, that are installed on artificial teeth and clasps that secure the prosthesis to the gums. This is a very common type of dentures, but in some cases it can cause irritation to the surrounding soft tissue.
Arc dentures have metal arc instead of a plate - it is more convenient and modern look prostheses since they are less irritating to the soft tissue and are more comfortable to wear.
Treat your teeth in a timely manner, then they will serve you until old age.
