    Extraction

    A dental extraction (also referred to as tooth extraction, exodontia, exodontics, or informally, tooth pulling) is the removal of teeth from the dental alveolus (socket) in the alveolar bone. Extractions are performed for a wide variety of reasons, but most commonly to remove teeth which have become unrestorable through tooth decay, periodontal disease, or dental trauma, especially when they are associated with toothache.

    Removal of Impacted Teeth(Malpositioned)

    .
    To remove the impacted tooth: An incision is made in your gums so the infected teeth and jawbone can be reached. Once the teeth are extracted, you may need stitches to close the incision. The socket where your teeth were located will be packed with gauze to control bleeding and promote healing.

    Rootcanal treatment

    A root canal is a treatment used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or becomes infected. During a root canal procedure, the nerve and pulp are removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed. Without treatment, the tissue surrounding the tooth will become infected and abscesses may form.

    A). False Teeth: 1. Removable False Teeth:
  • Acrylic Plastic Dentistry
  • A removable partial denture or bridge usually consists of replacement teeth attached to a pink or gum-colored plastic base, which is sometimes connected by metal framework that holds the denture in place in the mouth. Partial dentures are used when one or more natural teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw.
    Poly(methyl methacrylate) -so-called 'acrylic resin' - is usually the material of choice for full denture bases and 'gumwork' for removable devices. It has also been the chemical model for many other material developments in dentistry

    A). False Teeth: 1. Removable False Teeth:
  • Chrome Cobalt Denture
  • A chrome cobalt partial denture is designed and cast to accurately fit all the palatal contours, rotations and embrasures of the teeth. Ring clasps that accurately fit around the teeth are added to help retain the denture in the mouth. ... This enables the denture to withstand the biting forces from the opposing teeth.

    2. Fixed False Teeth

    Fixed dentures - also know as non-removable dentures - are basically denture devices that consist of a row of prosthetic teeth connected to a framework that is held in position by dental implants.

    B). Orthodontic: Removable Appliance, e.g Tongue gate

    A removable appliance is made from a plastic plate with wires coming from the sides. These grip the teeth to keep the brace in place. Removable appliances have a limited number of uses, mainly because they are restricted to moving single teeth and widening either the upper or lower arches

    B). Orthodontic: Fixed Appliance Braces

    Fixed appliances like braces are attached to the teeth by metal bands or special cement. They aren't normally taken off until treatment is complete. ... While clear aligners can be effective in treating mild to moderate orthodontic problems, fixed appliances are generally needed for more comprehensive treatment.
