Prosthodontic treatments are designed to produce a balance between functionality, longevity and esthetics. Prosthodontic treatments include the following:

• Dental Bridge -
A bridge is a dental device that is used to fill a space where a tooth has been removed. The false tooth is attached to the other two teeth around the missing tooth to form a bridge. Maintaining a good oral hygiene will increase the life of a bridge.

Veneers are used for teeth that are severely discolored, misshapen, crooked, having small holes, or to correct unwanted or uneven spaces. They are bonded to the teeth to give a natural look.

Endodontics

Our teeth are meant to last a lifetime. Sometimes, however, damage occurs to a tooth and the inside of the tooth becomes infected. This infection damages the pulp of the tooth - the network of blood vessels and nerves inside. Left untreated, the damaged pulp can cause infection that will damage the bone around the tooth and cause swelling and pain. If the damaged tooth becomes infected, Endodontist may have to perform an endodontic treatment called Root Canal Therapy to save it. Endodontic treatment is necessary when the pulp, the soft tissue inside the root canal, becomes inflamed or infected. The inflammation or infection can have a variety of causes: deep decay, repeated dental procedures on the tooth, or a crack or chip in the tooth. In addition, an injury to a tooth may cause pulp damage even if the tooth has no visible chips or cracks. If pulp inflammation or infection is left untreated, it can cause pain or lead to an abscess.

Signs of needing Endodontic treatment

• Pain
• Prolonged sensitivity to heat or cold
• Tenderness to touch and chewing
• Discoloration of the tooth
• Swelling, drainage and tenderness in the lymph nodes and as well as nearby bone and gingival tissues.

Endodontic treatment saves the tooth

The endodontist removes the inflamed or infected pulp, carefully cleans and shapes the inside of the canal, a channel inside the root, then fills and seals the space. Afterwards, you will return to your dentist, who will place a crown or other restoration on the tooth to protect and restore it to full function.

After restoration, the tooth continues to function like any other tooth.
