Today’s society strives for beauty and some people want to improve their physical appearance to feel good in their own skin. Straight, white teeth are part of this ideal of beauty and can provide greater self-confidence. A growing number of adults are turning to orthodontics to improve the aesthetics of their smile and achieve better chewing function.
The gum is a soft tissue in the mouth that covers the alveolar bone (the bone that supports the teeth) and encloses the base of the teeth to keep them in place.
Since it plays a central role in keeping teeth in place, it is important to care for it and prevent the diseases that affect it.
There are two types of gums in the mouth: the attached gum, which supports the teeth, and the free mucous membrane.
The discipline dedicated to the placement of dental implants is called implantology. Implants help to restore a beautiful smile, but also a better quality of life. The professionals who can perform these treatments are highly trained to ensure your comfort and the durability of your treatments.
Bruxism is characterized by a grinding or clenching of teeth while no swallowing, chewing or speaking movements are performed. Since there is no specific purpose to the grinding and clenching of teeth, bruxism is defined as a parafunction. In addition to being unpleasant for the bruxer, these squeaks can cause muscle pain and damage the teeth.
In order to correct misalignments and to reposition the jaw and teeth, orthodontic treatment may be necessary to improve occlusion. One of the alternatives to braces is Invisalign technology, which also corrects tooth alignment. This recent technology is gaining in popularity because of its comfort, discretion and practicality.
CERAMIC OR ZIRCON RESTORATIONS IN A SINGLE APPOINTMENT
The tooth is divided into two parts: the crown and the root. The crown is normally the visible part of the tooth above the gum. It is the part of the tooth that is exposed to food and other external elements.
The crown is covered with enamel and protects the more sensitive parts of the tooth (dentine and pulp) from elements such as food, air, saliva, bacteria and microbes. Because of its exposure, it can be damaged in a variety of ways.
