Braces and Aligners straighten the teeth, making it easier for the patient to bite, chew and speak. Braces can correct misaligned teeth, prevent speech problems; improve chewing capacity.
A Filling is material that fills the opening that’s left after a decayed portion of a tooth has been removed. Fillings fall into three categories: amalgam, composite and GIC.
An Extraction is performed to remove a decayed or severely damaged tooth that cannot be saved. It may also be performed to relieve crowding of teeth. In some cases, (for example, when the tooth is impacted) an extraction must be performed surgically. Dental Sealants help prevent cavities. A sealant is a plastic material that is applied where decay occurs most often. Space Maintainers hold the space for a permanent tooth after a child has lost a milk tooth due to decay or an accident. The space maintainer keeps adjacent teeth from shifting into the empty space. Habit-breaking Devices help children stop thumb sucking or tongue thrusting, which can have an impact on their oral health and their speech.
