Replacement of missing teeth can be done by various means.
Removable teeth will be uncomfortable. They can cause sore spots , difficulty in chewing, psychological discomfort. Dentures need to be removed during Night time. Fixed teeth will be possible only when the teeth adjacent to missing teeth are healthy. Grinding of adjacent teeth is the main disadvantage of fixed bridge. Implant overcomes all the disadvantages of removable denture and fixed bridge. For inserting a fixed bridge we need to shape/ grind adjacent tooth. This can lead to sensitivity, damage / later decay of those teeth.

Zirconia (zirconium dioxide) is a white, powdered metal oxide. Like other common dental crown materials, it is a ceramic. Zirconia is made from zirconium, a metal with similar properties to titanium. Zirconium makes a good choice for dental material because it is chemically unreactive. Zirconia has many properties that make it a good choice for dental crown material. Some of these beneficial properties include:
Metal free ceramic can be made of zirconia which will be more natural when compare to metal ceramic.
People have been striving for straight teeth for centuries – archaeologists even discovered mummified ancients with crude metal bands wrapped around individual teeth. Braces are now widely used as an effective tool to straighten teeth, but despite being so common, there is probably a lot you still don’t know about this dental tool.
Braces are more than just a simple cosmetic tool.
Crooked teeth not only affect your smile; They can also affect your oral health, leading to tooth decay, gum disease, teeth overlapping against each other can lead to premature wear and tear. By fitting you with a custom brace doctor can rectify these problems.
Large numbers of people who get braces are kids and teenagers who want to improve their appearance by straightening their crooked teeth. More and more adults are going in for braces, partly because the technology is allowing these corrective tools to be almost invisible.
There is no age limit for braces. Any person with healthy teeth can go for braces at any age.

Gingival flap surgery is used to treat gum disease (periodontitis). It may be recommended for people with moderate or advanced periodontitis. First scaling and root planning is done prior to flap surgery. If this treatment does not eliminate the gum infection, gingival flap surgery may be used. It also may be done along with another procedure known as osseous (bone) surgery.
Gingival flap surgery is a type of gum procedure. The gums are separated from the teeth and folded back temporarily. This allows a dentist to reach the root of the tooth and the bone.
First local anesthesia will be given to numb the area. Then the doctor will use a scalpel to separate the gums from the teeth. They will be lifted back in the form of a flap. This gives direct access to the roots and bone supporting the teeth.
Inflamed tissue will be removed from between the teeth and from any holes (defects) in the bone. After completion of procedure sutures will be placed to close the flap. Sutures will be removed after 1 week.
Introduction of laser for flap surgery made things easy for the patient. Using laser the need for flap surgery can be minimised. With laser there will be minimal/ no pain and there will be no need for sutures.
Dentures (also known as false teeth) need to be tough, which is why they’re made from materials that can withstand years of day-to-day wear. There are a variety of different kinds of dentures you can choose from, depending on your personal situation, and flexible dentures are one of them.
Flexible dentures are a kind of partial denture, but these ones are made of different materials than ordinary partial dentures. Most flexible dentures are made of a thin thermoplastic such as nylon, compared to the thicker, more rigid acrylic used in full dentures.
You may find that flexible partial dentures are a more comfortable fit than other removable partials, especially if you’re still new to wearing replacement teeth. Not only that, but most partial dentures are usually made with metal parts which can sometimes show. Flexible dentures do not use any metal parts so tend to look and feel a lot more natural.
Flexible dentures need special routines for caring for them and cleaning them. A typical flexible denture cleaning routine involves soaking them in denture cleanser tablet solution, brushing them free of debris and finally rinsing them under running water to remove any remaining denture cleaning solution.
Your dentist or dental professional will be able to help you decide which type of dentures suit you and your circumstances best, so you can smile and laugh out loud.
If your dentist recommends removing your wisdom teeth, they'll take an X-ray of your mouth to help them determine who should carry out the procedure. Any charges and payment methods should be discussed before the procedure begins. Read more about NHS dental charges.
Before having your wisdom teeth removed, you'll be given an injection of local anesthetic to numb the tooth and surrounding area. If you're particularly anxious about the procedure, your dentist or surgeon may give you a sedative to help you relax. This will usually be an injection into your arm. General anesthetic is rarely needed for wisdom tooth removal. It's only occasionally used when the procedure is carried out in hospital. However, in this case, you should still be able to go home on the same day as the procedure.
If the tooth hasn't come through the gum, a small cut (incision) will be made in the gum to access it. A small piece of the bone covering the tooth may also need to be removed. The tooth may be cut into smaller parts to make it easier to remove through the opening. There's less need to make an incision if the tooth has broken through the gum. You'll feel some pressure just before the tooth is removed, as your dentist or oral surgeon needs to widen the tooth socket by rocking the tooth back and forth before taking it out. You shouldn't feel any pain as your wisdom teeth are removed because the area will be numb. However, if you do feel pain during the procedure, tell your dentist or oral surgeon so they can give you more anesthetic. The time period for removal of wisdom teeth varies with difficulty. The time period can vary from 10 min to 1 hour.
