The inner part of the tooth structure is called the pulp. In some cases, when the pulp of the tooth has become infected, this inner substance must be removed and replaced so that the tooth can remain healthy.
This may be performed on toddlers whose baby teeth (typically molars) have been damaged. In this procedure, the infected part of the pulp is removed and then the remaining pulp is covered with a dental therapeutic dressing to keep it healthy.
The primary reasons for considering an All-on-4 are obvious. You will regain the functional benefits of natural teeth and improve your general oral health. You will regain a healthy-looking, natural smile and the confidence and ease with others that comes with that.
Are you missing one or more teeth? If so, you’re far from alone. It has been estimated that 178 million Americans are missing at least one tooth. A single tooth implant offers you the opportunity to replace a missing tooth with a permanent, fixed tooth that looks and functions exactly like a natural tooth. You’ll be able to care for your implant in the same way as you care for your other teeth.
