A bridge is a device a dentist inserts to fill a gap where a tooth is missing. A “conventional” bridge consists of a false tooth (or teeth),
known as a pontic, which is affixed to a crown on a tooth next to the gap. A “Maryland” bridge, on the other hand, is where the pontic
is fixed to the teeth on either side using wings,meaning that it is not necessary to fit a crown to the other teeth.


Root Canal

Root canal treatment (also called endodontics) is needed when the blood or nerve supply of the tooth (known as the pulp) is infected
through decay or injury. You may not feel any pain in the early stages of the infection. In some cases, your tooth could darken in
colour which may mean that the nerve of the tooth has died (or is dying). This would need root canal treatment.



A crown is a type of dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant and is typically bonded to the
tooth using a dental cement. Crowns can be made from many materials, which are usually fabricated using indirect methods.
Crowns are often used to improve the strength or appearance of teeth.



Dentures are prosthetic devices constructed to replace missing teeth, and which are supported by surrounding soft and hard
tissues of the oral cavity. Conventional dentures are removable, however there are many different denture designs, some which
rely on bonding or clasping onto teeth or dental implants. There are many colloquial terms for dentures such as dental plate,
false teeth, choppers falsies & gnashers.



A dental extraction (also referred to as exodontia) is the removal of a tooth from the mouth. Extractions are performed for a
wide variety of reasons, including tooth decay that has destroyed enough tooth structure to prevent restoration. Extractions of
impacted or problematic wisdom teeth are routinely performed, as are extractions of some permanent teeth to make space for
orthodontic treatment.



A dental restoration or dental filling is a dental restorative material used to restore the function, integrity and morphology of
missing tooth structure. The structural loss typically results from caries or external trauma. It is also lost intentionally during
tooth preparation to improve the aesthetics or the physical integrity of the intended restorative material.



A dental implant is a metal rod that is placed in the jawbone to hold a false tooth in place. They are usually made of titanium,
a metal that is well-tolerated by the body.
Over several months, the bone fuses with the metal implant. A small attachment is left protruding through the gum, and
Crowns, Dentures or Bridges can be screwed or clipped onto this attachment.




A jacket is a crown for a front tooth usually made of porcelain. It is also called a cap. It can be required for a number of
different reasons. Most commonly a tooth that needs a large filling or has been subjected to a fracture will need a crown
which is required to maintain the structural and functional integrity of the tooth. Teeth that have undergone root canal
therapy (RCT) require a crown for the same reasons as fillings do. Teeth can also be crowned for esthetic reasons.



The Flexible dental partial is an unbreakable , removeable partial that many people find very Comfortable. This lightweight
partial is practically invisible and completely eliminates the mental clasps that you may be experiencing or have seen
on other partials.



Dental cleanings involve removing plaque (soft, sticky, bacteria infested film) and tartar (calculus) deposits that have built up on the
teeth over time. Your teeth are continually bathed in saliva which contains calcium and other substances which help strengthen and
protect the teeth. While this is a good thing, it also means that we tend to get a build-up of calcium deposits on the teeth. This chalky
substance will eventually build up over time, like limescale in a pipe or kettle. Usually it is tooth coloured and can easily be mistaken
as part of the teeth, but it also can vary from brown to black in colour.


X Rays

Dental X-rays are pictures of the teeth, bones, and soft tissues around them to help find problems with the teeth, mouth, and jaw.
X-ray pictures can show cavities, hidden dental structures (such as wisdom teeth), and bone loss that cannot be seen during a visual
examination. Dental X-rays may also be done as follow-up after dental treatments.



Reline refers to a dental procedure in which the entire tissue side of a denture is replaced with a new plastic to compensate for bone
loss and improve the fit of the denture. It is used in cases where the denture looks and bites right but does not fit well. Often a reline
is recommended in instances where a denture is no longer as secure as it once was. This usually occurs after several years of denture
use. There are two basic types of denture relines: hard permanent reline and soft reline. A hard permanent reline is usually stronger
than a soft reline and does not require the same degree of frequent removal and repair that a soft reline does. However a soft reline
can be achieved in a shorter span of time although either relines can be achieved in a single day.
