Dental Implants Look Natural

Implants are dental prosthetics that are used to replace missing teeth. They are popular because they offer stability and strength comparable to a natural tooth. In addition, dental implants look and feel like natural teeth, and require practically the same amount of care as normal teeth. Because of this, they greatly resemble natural teeth in both function and appearance. When several implants are placed in the upper or lower jaw, the implants can be used as the anchor for bridges or other devices.

COSMETIC DENTISTRY

Cosmetic dentistry describes a series of dental procedures whose objective is to improve the appearance of the teeth and sometimes the mouth as well. A dentist or a dental surgeon can often perform cosmetic dentistry, although in cases where other parts of the face or the head are involved, a general surgeon may be engaged.

 

Cosmetic Dentistry

There are many dental treatments targeted to improve the appearance of the smile, among them, the most popular ones are: Porcelain veneers, Composite veneers, All ceramic crowns, Dental Whitening, Dental Implants & Bridges Gum surgery.

Restoring more than your ability to chew

Full mouth reconstructions (performed by prosthodontists) are a complex series of dental procedures typically used for people who have lost all or almost all of their teeth. One of the primary purposes of full mouth reconstruction is to restore a patient’s lost chewing ability.

Nevertheless, a full mouth restoration also carries significant psychological benefits for the patient. These benefits should be considered as part of the overall value of this dental work. There are dramatic difference in prices for full mouth restorations, with pricing often predicated on where you live.

Prosthodontics in Puerto Rico

The US and Canada have some of the highest prices in the world. There are significantly more affordable high-quality options in Puerto Rico.

Dental Bridges

Bridges are structures that are attached to the teeth on both sides of the gap, and typically contain in the middle a crown or another structure that replaces the missing tooth. Bridges are used in cases where the teeth on the sides of the gap need some work, when the person can’t wait or doesn’t want to wait for options that take much longer (and may be more expensive), for example, implants, or in cases where surgery is not an option. Another advantage of bridges is that they are cheaper than individual dental implants.

Dental Bridges

Bridges are dental prosthetic devices that are used to replace missing teeth that have been lost, commonly to periodontal disease or trauma.

Dental Crowns

A crown is a type of dental-restoration device that is used to give form and strength to a tooth that is still viable but has suffered extensive damage.

Unlike fillings, a dental crown is normally prepared in a dental laboratory with a sample taken by the dentist. This sample is created using a mold and usually involves the shape of the damaged tooth, but sometimes it also involves the shape of the surrounding teeth. This is done when there is concern that there might be problems with the bite.

Individual Dental Crowns

Crowns may be used individually, for example, after performing a root canal, or in conjunction with other structures, such as when used on top of a dental implant or an all on 4 solution.

What is a Root Canal?

  • The enamel is the white part on the exterior of the tooth.
  • The dentin is the hard layer under the enamel that gives the tooth its strength.
  • The pulp is soft tissue under the dentin, composed by blood vessels and nerves. Its function is to “feed” the tooth while it’s growing so it achieves its adult state.

The pulp can get infected. The two main causes are bacteria and trauma. However, because the pulp is under the dentin, it may be hard to notice until the infection is advanced. When the infection reaches a certain point, it causes pain. If left untreated, the infection will eventually cause the loss of the tooth.

Root Canal

A tooth is composed of three elements: the enamel, the dentin, and the pulp.

General Dentistry is Also Known as Odontology

Odontology is the branch of medicine that deals with the teeth, as well as the rest of the oral cavity and the maxillofacial area, especially the jaws. It’s a practice that is commonly called dentistry, (although “odontology” and “dentistry” can be used as synonyms). The terms “odontologist” and “dentist” can be used as synonyms as well. Odontologists often further specialize in dental areas, such as orthodontics.

Odontology is an important part of medicine because the health of the teeth and gums are key factors in both the physical and mental well being of a person.

Before the dental surgery

However, surgery is always invasive, and you can improve your experience and the chances of long-term success of your dental procedure by preparing for your surgery.

  • Talk with your dental surgeon and learn all you can about your surgery. Learn what exactly is going to happen, what the risks are, and what specific requirements or care you’ll need, such as time off from work, dietary restrictions, and how long it will take to recover.
  • If possible, obtain all the medication that you’ll need at home. This is not only practical, but it will also let you know where you can get the medication at home and how much it costs. You’ll also know exactly where to go if you need more medication. You will also know if certain medication is unavailable at home or if you can’t bring it with you, so you can solve this problem with your dentist beforehand.
  • Talk with your dentist about any other condition or illness that you have and whether you are taking medication for it. You may find that you’ll need to stop taking it or replace it.
  • You may have some dietary restrictions as a result of the surgery or the medications, such as a bland or liquid diet. You should inform the hotel staff about it and consider how you will prepare your diet at home.
