The world of medicine is among other areas that have evolved over the years. Dentistry is not left behind thanks to technological advancements and professionalism of its practitioners. Many decades ago the only service provided by dentists was tooth extraction or minor dental surgeries on the main cases. With the provision of advanced equipment and machines, more services are being provided ranging from minor procedures to complex surgeries like sedation dentistry. Some well-equipped centers are able to provide a large number of these services if not all.
Services offered by dentistry centers
It may be hard to believe if you were told decades ago that this was even possible. Conscious sedation for clients who are busy is available for minor surgeries. Some of these procedures include tooth repair and fillings due to trauma or cavities. Tooth trauma can be caused by different factors including, cracks experiences when one falls or biting hard objects like nails. These repairs can be done by use of various materials like composite fillings. They are made in a way that makes them feel natural thus comfortable for the patient.
Implants and bridges
These are ways used to replace a missing tooth. A bridge which is a fixed, removable denture can be used to replace one or more teeth. These services can be used by people who have lost some of their teeth through accidents or old age as the bridges are designed to look like teeth with crowns attached to them. You can, therefore, afford a smile thanks to these procedures. On the other hand, implants are metal posts surgically placed into the jawbone to act as support for replacement teeth.
These services are used to address your dental hygiene needs. They range from teeth whitening to general oral cleaning. These services are needed often due to the advantages they give. Without proper cleaning, we are prone to other oral infections. Teeth whitening is sought by many clients as foods like coffee cause stains that accumulate over time. The procedure is done by use of peroxide based materials used in improving the appearance of discolored teeth without causing any harm to them.
This is one of the ancient procedures done in the past. However today it’s still practiced as a last resort when other procedures have failed such as filing or crowning. The procedure has also been improved due to the advanced equipment available and use of sedatives to make the procedure more bearable.
