The aim of root canal therapy is to remove the infected tissue from the root canals attached to a specific tooth. Smaller teeth tend to have just one root canal, but larger teeth can have two or more. The root canals contain blood vessels that deliver nutrients to the teeth, keeping them healthy. However, when infection sets in, this is no longer possible, and this can put your tooth at risk. Sadly, antibiotics have been proven to be ineffective at treating infections of the root canal and as a result, manual removal of the infected tissue is necessary.
Gum disease is an extremely common problem that will affect most of us at some point during our lifetime. In the early stages, taking positive steps to counteract it can actually reverse it and the symptoms it causes but left untreated, it can have serious consequences for your health.
There is no doubt that when it comes to replacing missing teeth, dental implants have revolutionized the process. Artificial teeth are now stronger, more durable and more long-lasting than ever before. They are also extremely natural in appearance, meaning that it is nearly impossible to tell if someone has a replacement tooth.
A successful dental implant procedure relies on the patient having a suitable amount of healthy, good density bone in their jaw. This is because the success of dental implants hinges on a process known as osseointegration. This term refers to the regrowth of bone around the titanium post which has been inserted in a pre-determined location in your jaw via an incision in the gums.
