Problems that we treat
This branch of Odontology seeks to preserve teeth by restoring lost tooth structure caused by decay. In the past this was achieved through the use of amalgam fillings. Today we use composites of resin and ceramic particles to restore teeth.
As decay and bacteria progress they first invade the tooth, and later spread to the pulp, the part of the nerve that is found inside the tooth. The pain then becomes intense and continuous. As the infection advances to the interior of the tooth it ultimately affects the area surrounding the roots that is to say, the bone, with the appearance of abscesses and swelling that may cause fistulas containing a purulent fluid. In this case, root canal treatment is necessary in order to destroy the nerve and preserve the tooth.
Fixed Prostheses and Removable Prostheses.
Through these solutions we replace the absence of biological teeth. These replacements are done promptly, since late replacement affects contiguous teeth making it necessary to extend the treatment to the affected teeth.
The gums surround, protect, and isolate the teeth and jaw bone on the outside. Poor hygiene affects the gums as well as the tooth and bone that support and provide stability to the tooth. The result is pain when eating cold and/or hot foods and the appearance of longer teeth, causing mobility, and consequently the loss of teeth.
Our first teeth were baby teeth, then came the permanent teeth and now, thanks to implants, comes a third dentition. Titanium screws are fastened to the bone to secure the implant and restore the chewing function. The implant is first introduced into the bone to replace the missing tooth, and then a prosthetic crown is fitted over it to substitute the missing tooth.
Child and Adult Orthodontics
By correct alignment of teeth, we get a good bite for chewing, for proper pronunciation of words, and for good oral hygiene. It also projects an agreeable physical appearance to those around us.
We seek to correct alterations of the maxillary bone during the stage of growth. This treatment, unlike the movement of teeth can only be done in the growth stage.
Good oral hygiene is essential for the prevention of dental disease. But, it's not enough to have teeth free from plaque. So it's advisable to perform at least one professional cleaning a year.
Brighter teeth always transmit a tidy image and pleasant appearance.
