A dental implant is а surgically inserted root replica which acts as a substitute for the root of a tooth. (A dental implant is an artificial substitute/replacement for the root portion of your natural tooth) It is a foundation for all prosthetic reconstructions.
Dental implants are now becoming a more popular treatment to replace missing teeth. They provide a longer-term solution, slow down bone loss and preserve nearby healthy tooth tissue.
In case of a single tooth loss, an implant will prevent the two healthy adjacent teeth from grinding. In this way, the adjacent teeth are preserved and the implant provides a better long-lasting solution.
If a patient has lost more than one tooth, a fixed dental bridge over the implants fixes the gap between the missing teeth, thus achieving optimal prosthetic rehabilitation. If the patient has lost all of his or her teeth, the problem would be resolved by either a fixed bridge or by prosthesis, which is supported by the implants.
When there is insufficient jaw bone quantum, which is necessary for bone osseoinegration, we use Bio oss artificial bone substitute (No.1 bone biomaterial).
The lack of one or more teeth is not only an esthetic issue. Missing teeth can also affect speech and your overall health. We, at Nordia, by utilizing cutting edge technology, could offer you optimal prosthetic solutions.
Crowns, bridges and veneers, are fixed prosthetic solutions. A combination of full and partial prosthetics could also be the best solution for your certain situation.
Dental crowns are restorations that protect damaged, cracked or broken teeth. A crown strengthens your existing damaged tooth so as to preserve its functionality. They can be made from metal-ceramic full PRESS porcelain or zirconium oxide ceramics.
Dental bridges, either of a small or large (circular) span could be made from the above mentioned materials as well.
Dental Veneers have long been used to create the ultimate smile makeover. With this treatment, it’s possible to transform crooked, stained, damaged or badly worn teeth into a brand new, straight, white smile, as seen on many of the Hollywood greats. Veneers are wafer-thin laminates of tooth-colored material (which can be either porcelain, ceramic or composite bonding material). They are cemented to the front surface of teeth to improve their cosmetic appearance.
Conservative dentistry deals with treating dental cavities with contemporary nanocomposite (white) fillings and dental adhesive systems (Dentsply de Tray, Vivadent), as we do in Nordia. It is also becoming an aesthetic discipline thus revitalizing the decayed teeth and returning their natural look. If you are willing to have white teeth and a perfect smile, visit us and we will fulfill your wishes and expectations.
Endodontics or root canal treatment involves healing the interior part of the tooth, so called “the nerve of the tooth” or dental pulp. We use contemporary methods and devices (electronically measurement of the length of the root canal, root canal treatment with NSK endomotor, flexible nickel titanium files-Maillefer, radiographic control of the treatment with RVG with minimized radiation dose in comparison with conventional-KODAK)
Our specialist performs all types of oral surgery interventions such as painless extractions, surgical extractions of wisdom teeth, frenulectomy, apical resections (apicoectomy), including multiradicular teeth, and bone regeneration before implantation procedures.
Bone regeneration before implantation procedures is mandatory if not sufficient bone is present for the implants to be placed. It implies horizontal and vertical enlargement of the alveolar ridge in order to make adequate space for the implants. In case the sinus is descended to the alveolar ridge which makes the implantation almost unachievable our oral surgeon specialist undertakes sinus lift procedure. Once the sinus lift is done, the gap beneath the elevated sinus is filled with artificial bone thus enlarging the bone quantum for the implants which are supposed to be placed.
All the bone regeneration procedures are carried out using bovine artificial bone Bio oss from Gesitclich, CH which is the best known bone substitute material nowadays worldwide.
Periodontal disease is a disease of the teeth supporting tissues (periodontal fibers, jaw bone, cementum of the teeth, gingival). Initially it affects the gingiva leading to gingivitis (inflammation of the gingigva). If it is untreated, it spreads to the periodontal spaces, the cementum, and then eventually to the jaw bone. It is caused by long-lasting inflammation as a result of bacteria building up in the spaces between teeth and gums.
The bacteria multiply and release toxins which lead to the destruction of structures supporting the tooth; thus creating the tooth (periodontal) pocket. As the tooth pocket progressively deepens, the tooth starts to loosen up, and if not treated on time it may fall out of the jaw bone.
The most common factors include lack of sufficient oral hygiene, decreased immunity, hereditary factors, and smoking. However, a direct and primary cause of the development of periodontal diseases is the formation of bacterial plaque, due to carelessness of everyday oral hygiene. Irregular and improper tooth cleaning leads to formation of tartar, a hard structure which forms on the tooth surface.
We treat periodontal disease either in a conventionally non-invasive manner (closed method of curratage of the pocket) by ultrasonic debridement of the gums and dental (tooth) pockets-Sonicflex, KAVO or in a invasive manner (open currettage) by surgically removing the pathological tissue and placing bone substitute (Biooss,Geistlich Pharma), if necessary.
There are a few methods to whiten your teeth: immediate in-office bleaching, home bleaching, photo lamp assisted bleaching, and or LASER assisted bleaching.
The procedures are based on a bleaching process that uses a peroxide-based complex of varying potency (3%-35% peroxide). The higher the concentration of peroxide in the compound, the more powerful the bleaching compound will be. While this makes it more effective in whitening the teeth, there is also a greater potential to cause damage to the surrounding gum tissue and your lips. Therefore, it is very important that your dentist isolate your gums and lips with a protective material in order to avoid any potential damage or burning of your soft tissue.
In-office bleaching offers immediate results, and the complete outcome is visible in a few days. Most cosmetic dental practices offer a combination of immediate, in-office teeth whitening and professional take-home tooth-whitening kits with custom-made trays.
