General Dentistry Services Winnipeg
A dental crown is an artificial, hollow tooth that encloses a damaged or decaying tooth, protecting it from further damage while improving the cosmetic appearance of your smile. Crowns are meant as a permanent treatment option that looks and feels like a regular tooth, although they can occasionally come loose or fall out. Crowns are an appropriate general dentistry option for Winnipeg patients with a discoloured tooth, broken tooth, misshapen tooth or a tooth that has undergone a large filling or root canal treatment.
A dental bridge is a prosthetic treatment option to replace one or more missing teeth. Bridges are natural looking artificial teeth that are anchored to each side of your mouth’s gap-space using either crowns or implants. There are different types of bridge treatments available depending on the location of your missing teeth, and the health of your remaining teeth and jawbone. To find out what general dentistry option is most suited for your oral health, call us at Plessis Dental today.
A dental extraction may be necessary for a number of reasons, including tooth trauma, decay, crowded teeth or periodontal disease. Certain non-oral health concerns that compromise an immune system, such as chemotherapy or an organ transplant, may require a tooth extraction to eliminate the risk of a tooth infection spreading. The most common type of extraction is a simple extraction, which involves a dentist removing a tooth in one piece. If a simple extraction is not an option, a sectional extraction or surgical extraction may be required.
Endodontics and Root Canals
Endodontics is a branch of general dentistry focused on dental pulp and periarticular tissue. The most common endodontic treatment is a root canal. The insides of your teeth are comprised of a soft pulp made up of blood vessels and nerves that help your teeth develop and grow. Root canal treatment is the process of removing pulp that has become injured or infected, cleaning the cavity and then filling and sealing it. At this point, your tooth will be prepared for a filling or a crown. Root canal treatment can save a tooth that would otherwise require extraction, and once a filling or crown is fitted onto your tooth, it will appear and function like a normal tooth.
