Prosthodontics is the restorations and replacement of the loss of natural teeth. Losing your teeth can impact your confidence, your health, and the way you speak. A dental implant is essentially an artificial root placed in the jawbone to replace the root of a missing tooth.
The screw which goes into your jawbone is titanium, as it reacts so well with the body. After the screw is put in place, the body is allowed a healing time of 3-6 months and then a crown is placed on top of this artificial root, in order to replace the missing tooth. Dental implants in Hornchurch are advantageous as an implant-supported crown is very similar to a natural tooth as it is permanently fixed and does not need other teeth or tissues to support it. Dental implants preserve the bone of the jaw that would normally have resorbed after tooth extraction. Implants cannot decay so you are guaranteed no fillings.
Orthodontic treatment involves moving teeth into a better position to improve function, appearance, and general health. Orthodontics can treat a range of problems, such as crooked or crowded teeth, overly spaced teeth, twisted or protruding teeth and serious malocclusions. Orthodontics in Hornchurch use a variety of various appliances to straighten teeth, one of which is fixed braces. Fixed braces are metal brackets attached to the front surface of the teeth along with thin metal wires and elastics to hold them in place. The team offer Damon Clear as they are self-ligating and don’t require elastics. As well as this, the brackets are clear instead of metal and are therefore much easier to maintain, less visible and offer a faster treatment that traditional braces.
One of the most common diseases and most of the team people are unaware that they have it. Early signs and symptoms are ignored or easily missed but if left to progress, can cause more problems.
Gum disease is caused by plaque build up and if left, can turn into tartar. Both of the aforementioned cause gum infection which shows as redness, swelling and soreness. If gum infection persists for long enough, it can start to break down the gum tissue and even the bone that supports the tooth.
Gum disease in Hornchurch consists of a periodontist carrying out regular maintenance appointments to keep the condition under control and prevent it from causing further damage.
