BENEFITS OF DENTAL FILLINGS
Dental fillings can benefit your oral health in many ways.
By sealing the holes in your teeth, they protect your teeth from decay.
They offer support to the teeth and improve their structure.
They can treat chips and fractures while retaining the natural look of your teeth.
If the tooth structure cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations, a crown or cap is used. It strengthens and protects the tooth structure. If you have decayed or broken teeth or have large fillings, getting crowns is recommended.
Implants are artificial teeth and roots surgically placed into the jaw bones. It matches the appearance of your natural teeth. They are considered a more stable substitute for partial or complete dentures. Whether you have missing teeth or you wish to improve chewing, dental implants are highly recommended. They are very durable and can be replaced or repaired in case of normal wear and tear.
DENTURES AND PARTIAL DENTURES
Complete dentures or partial dentures replace missing teeth. Both dentures look like natural teeth. Complete dentures replace the arch of missing teeth. Partial dentures are used when a few teeth are missing. Dentures prevent other teeth from shifting. It also helps in improving chewing, speech, and digestion.
Empress® is considered one of the world leaders in dental ceramics and is known for its strength and durability, which helps to improve the health and functionality of your natural teeth. It offers dental veneers, crowns, inlays, inlays, bridges and other restorative solutions to enhance your smile. It comes in shades that can match the shade of your teeth very closely, has excellent polishing properties, and is metal-free, among offering other benefits.
A dental bridge is a non-removable appliance, usually made of porcelain to resemble your natural teeth. Whether you want to maintain the facial shape or fill the space of missing teeth or prevent teeth from drifting out of position, a fixed bridge can work for you.
When the cavity is too small for a crown and big for a filling, custom restorations are recommended. They fit into your natural tooth structure like puzzle pieces. Sometimes they are referred to as partial crowns as they are not permanent and may require a replacement.
ROOT CANAL THERAPY
In some cases, a cavity or crack goes so deep into your tooth that it reaches the pulp, which causes decay or infection. In order to save your tooth, you need root canal therapy. In case of new infections, a tooth will have to be re-treated, but usually, this treatment lasts a lifetime.

PROCESS OF GETTING DENTAL IMPLANTS
The process of getting dental implants is different for each patient as it varies based on the kind of implant and the condition of the jawbone. However, these are the main steps involved in the procedure:
The first step involves developing a personalized treatment plan. We will take X-rays and know about the dental and medical history of our patient.
Next, a tooth root implant is placed into the bone socket of the missing tooth. By the time jawbone heals, it grows around the implanted metal post to get secured.
Once the implant is secured, a small connector or abutment is attached to the post to secure the new tooth.
Our team of dentists at Acqua Dental Centre takes an impression of your tooth and creates a model, and then the artificial tooth is attached to the abutment.
