Dental implants

Dental Implants traditional 2 stage protocol and the new ADA approved 1 stage protocol, which will reduce the need for multiple visits to Costa Rica. The modern dental implant is a surgical device, most commonly used to replace one or more missing teeth by fusing to the bone and acting as an artificial tooth root. Dental implants can replace single teeth, where a crown is fastened to the underlying implant or multiple teeth. In multi-teeth replacements, implants can be fixed, where a bridge of teeth is secured to multiple implants or removable, where implants are used to secure and stabilize a denture by joining to it with an attachment that can be released by the denture wearer. Dental implants allow people who are missing teeth to be able to smile, speak and chew well and comfortably. A dental implant is a specially designed small cylinder or screw made of a biologically

compatible material extensively tested over several years called titanium metal. Implants act as an anchor and can be used for replacing a single tooth, one or both ends of a bridge or a full denture, therefore less implants are needed to cover a more expansive area. Dental implants have more than 30 year of continuous research that has resulted in excellent technology that gives Dr. Garita the peace of mind of providing the patient a success rate of over 98 percent. Dr. Mario Garita uses top implants brands, like Zimmer, Nobel Biocare, 3 I Biomet. He prefers this system because of quality of titanium internal strength precision of the components antirotational design and lifetime warranty. Please check with your dentist and he will be able to tell you that this implant system are some of the best on the market today.


Crown and bridges A crown and most of the bridges are a type of dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant. Crowns are often needed when a large cavity threatens the ongoing health of a tooth. They are 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. While inarguably beneficial to dental health, the procedure and materials can be relatively expensive A bridge may be recommended if you’re missing one or more teeth. Gaps left by missing teeth eventually cause the remaining teeth to rotate or shift into the empty spaces, resulting in a bad bite. The imbalance caused by missing teeth can also lead to gum disease and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders.


Veneers In dentistry, a veneer is a thin layer of material placed over a tooth, either to improve the aesthetics of a tooth or to protect a damage to a tooth’s surface. There are two main types of material used to fabricate a veneer: composite and dental porcelain. A composite veneer may be directly placed (built-up in the mouth), or indirectly fabricated by a dental technician in a dental laboratory, and later bonded to the tooth, typically using a resin cement such as Panavia. In contrast, a porcelain veneer may only be indirectly fabricated.


Dentures Dentures, also known as false teeth, are prosthetic devices constructed to replace missing teeth; they are supported by the 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 two main categories of dentures, the distinction being whether they are used to replace missing teeth on the mandibular arch or on the maxillary arch.


Root Canals Endodontic retreatment

Endodontic treatment, also known as root canal treatment, is a dental procedure to treat infection at the centre of a tooth (the root canal system). Root canal treatment is also called endodontics. The infection is caused by bacteria that live in the mouth and causes cavities and invade the tooth when tooth decay occurs, fillings leak, teeth are damaged by trauma, such as a fall. What are the signs of needing endodontic treatment? Signs to look for include pain, prolonged sensitivity to heat or cold, tenderness to touch and chewing, discoloration of the tooth, and swelling, drainage and tenderness in the lymph nodes as well as nearby bone and gingival tissues. Sometimes, however, there are no symptoms.

As occasionally happens with any dental or medical procedure, a tooth may not heal as expected after initial treatment for a variety of reasons, such as narrow or curved canals were not treated during the initial procedure; complicated canal anatomy went undetected in the first procedure; the placement of the crown or other restoration was delayed following the endodontic treatment; the restoration did not prevent salivary contamination to the inside of the tooth. In other cases, a new problem can jeopardize a tooth that was successfully treated. For example: new decay can expose the root canal filling material to bacteria, causing a new infection in the tooth; a loose, cracked or broken crown or filling can expose the tooth to new infection; a tooth sustains a fracture.


Composite fillings (bondings)

Dental composite resins are types of synthetic resins which are used in dentistry as restorative material or adhesives. Synthetic resins evolved as restorative materials since they were insoluble, aesthetic, insensitive to dehydration, easy to manipulate and reasonably inexpensive.


Periodontist

A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal disease, and in the placement of dental implants. Periodontists are also experts in the treatment of oral inflammation. Periodontists receive extensive training in these areas, including three additional years of education beyond dental school. They are familiar with the latest techniques for diagnosing and treating periodontal disease, and are also trained in performing cosmetic and esthetic periodontal procedures. Periodontists often treat more problematic periodontal cases, such as those with severe gum disease (bone loss, periodontal pockets, teeth mobility, gum bleeding) or a complex medical history. Periodontists offer a wide range of treatments, such as scaling and root planning (in which the infected surface of the root is cleaned) or

root surface debridement (in which damaged tissue is removed). They can also treat patients with severe gum problems using a range of surgical procedures. In addition, periodontists are specially trained in the surgical treatment of those patients that shows the gums when they smile or patients that have gum recession and placement and maintenance of dental implants. The periodontist examines the gums, checks to see if there is any gum line recession, assesses how the teeth fit together when biting, and checks the teeth to see if any are loose. The periodontist will also take a small measuring instrument called a probe and place it between the teeth and gums to determine the depth of those spaces, known as periodontal pockets; this helps the periodontist assess the health of the gums. X-rays may also be taken to observe the health of the bone below the gum line.


Full mouth cleaning by highly trained dental hygienists. Teeth cleaning (also known as prophylaxis, literally a preventative treatment of a disease) is a procedure for the removal of tartar(mineralized plaque) that may develop even with careful brushing and flossing, especially in areas that are difficult to reach in routine toothbrushing. It is often done by a dental hygienist. Professional cleaning includes tooth scaling and tooth polishing anddebridement if too much tartar has accumulated. This involves the use of various instruments or devices to loosen and remove deposits from the teeth.
