RESTORATIVE DENTISTRY LONDON

The goal of restorative dentistry, a vitally significant area of dentistry, is to preserve and improve the appearance and functionality of teeth and other oral structures. It is essential for promoting oral health, enhancing quality of life, and increasing self-esteem in people who have lost, damaged, or decayed teeth for a variety of reasons, such as illnesses, injuries, or normal ageing.

Restorative dentistry tries to improve general health by restoring the ability to eat, speak, and smile with confidence in addition to treating dental issues. Our team at Piccadilly Dental combine clinical knowledge with the most recent developments in dental technology and materials, along with our wealth of experience and training, to deliver long-lasting, natural-looking results.

Maintaining the effectiveness of restorative dental work and ensuring long-term oral health require routine dental exams and good oral hygiene habits.

DENTAL IMPLANTS

Dental implants provide a method of replacing missing teeth that is well-researched, predictable, conservative, and elegant. The patient receives a restoration that closely resembles their natural tooth. Like a real tooth's root, a commercially pure titanium post is inserted into the mandible. Following an appropriate healing period, it serves to support the replacement tooth. The replacement tooth or teeth may be affixed permanently (as in the case of a crown or bridge) or removable for cleaning purposes (as in the case of a denture).

Typically, implant therapy involves two phases. Initially, the implants are inserted into the jaw through a very regulated and exact surgical process. After the jaw has healed, the implants are used to attach replacement teeth. Teeth in a day refers to the possibility of temporarily attaching teeth to implants in certain circumstances during the same visit.

Dental implants may be a viable treatment option for any patient who wishes to replace lost teeth. However, only after a thorough consultation and examination can your suitability be verified. Following your consultation for implants, we will provide you a full range of treatment options to address your particular concerns.

DENTURES

A removable appliance called a denture is used to replace one or more teeth. Usually, acrylic or a mix of acrylic and metal is used to make it.

A complete denture is used when all of the natural teeth in a jaw are missing, whereas a partial denture is used to replace some missing teeth.

Properly constructed dentures provide a cautious and secure way to support your ability to speak, eat, and smile with assurance. Patients undergoing multiple extractions and/or dental implant treatment may also use a denture as a temporary treatment option.

Precise treatment procedures are followed during the denture-making process to guarantee a comfortable fit and the desired appearance. Following your initial consultation, we can go over in-depth with you how long, how many appointments, and what steps will be involved in making your new dentures. Our experts have extensive training and specialise in the creation of dentures.

In some circumstances, dental implants can also be used to stabilise and help retain the dentures, giving them an even more secure and natural feel.

ROOT CANAL THERAPY

The dental pulp, which is located in the centre of each tooth and contains blood vessels and nerves, is shielded from the elements by the hard outer layer of each tooth. Bacteria will enter the nerve space and cause inflammation, infection, and toothaches if the outer protective layers of the tooth are damaged by tooth decay or clenching and grinding that fractures the tooth.

Pain, extended sensitivity to heat or cold, tooth discoloration, swelling and tenderness of the surrounding gums, or an unpleasant taste in the mouth can all be indicators of an inflamed and damaged nerve.

In order to stop or prevent toothaches, inflamed and infected nerve tissue must be removed, and the nerve space must be sealed to stop more bacteria from entering and spreading the infection. Our in-house root canal specialist will perform this precise and skillful procedure using the most up-to-date tools and techniques. For the highest level of precision during the process, we use microscopes in conjunction with 3D x-rays to precisely identify the nerve spaces.

Procedures for root canal treatment are frequently painless and fairly comfortable. There is a local anaesthetic used, and the procedure shouldn't feel any different from getting a regular filling. A permanent filling will be used to restore the tooth after the root canal procedure is finished. A crown will be affixed to the tooth in most cases, as a large portion of the tooth may be missing, to lessen the likelihood of a future fracture.

CROWNS

With crowns, we can restore teeth that have undergone extensive filling restorations but have become weak or fractured due to recurrent dental decay cycles.

In addition to repairing the tooth to its ideal form, appearance, and functional position, they can shield it from additional damage. Particularised dental adhesives are used to hold in place a crown, or "cap," that is placed over a tooth. Many materials, such as resin, ceramic, or precious metals like gold or platinum, can be used to create crowns. After conducting a comprehensive clinical assessment, we will provide guidance on suitable material selections and treatment plans to guarantee a favourable result.

Once the tooth has been prepared, our skilled dental technicians will create your restoration using specialised digital scans or traditional moulds. We will fit a temporary restoration that is handcrafted while your restoration is being made. We always try the crown in place before it is permanently fitted to ensure that it fits perfectly and looks good with the bite. To get the best long-term results, we cement our restorations using the most recent adhesive materials and techniques.

The materials used to make crowns and bridges do not corrode over time. The tooth beneath is still vulnerable to gum disease and decay, though. Regular dental hygiene practices, such as brushing and flossing, are crucial for both preserving dental health and preventing crown problems.

BRIDGES

Your dentist can replace a missing tooth or teeth using a bridge, among other treatments. Using dental implants or a removable denture are the alternatives.

A bridge is a specially designed fix that works for every single situation. Your dentist will be in the best position to determine whether a bridge is the best option for you after a thorough examination and, if so, what design and materials would be most suitable.

After the teeth are prepared, our skilled dental technicians take traditional moulds or specialised digital scans, which they will use to create your restoration. We will fit a temporary restoration that is handcrafted while your restoration is being made. We always try the bridge into place before it is permanently installed to ensure that it fits perfectly and looks good with the bite. To get the best long-term results, we cement our restorations using the most recent adhesive materials and techniques.
