Bridges are usually made from the PFM (Porcelain Fused to Metal). The biggest difference here is the metal. Despite it being invisible (covered by the porcelain), it has the most crucial influence on the long term success. The metal is divided into 3 groups. Non-precious, semi-precious and precious (also high noble). The higher the percentage of precious metals in it, the better is the corrosion resistance, which makes the bridge longer lasting.
The latest research is working on replacing the metal all together with ceramics, and it does look promising.
These used to be made out of gold, but now we use modern ceramics to make them blend in better and we can also preserve this way more tooth structure.
Once the real restoration is in place, it looks and feels same as your natural tooth, while preventing any additional damage to the gums, by staying away from the gums, whenever possible.
In addition to their original triangular bracket, Fastbraces® also offers Fastbraces® Clear braces, an aesthetically pleasing alternative to traditional metal braces.
To treat TMJ disorders, first the cause has to be identified. In less severe cases TMJ disorders can be treated with self-managed care (easting soft foods, using ice packs, avoiding extreme jaw movement) or nonsurgical treatments (anti-inflammatory medications, Botox injections, stabilization splints).
We also use TENS units to assist in relaxing the jaw and facial muscles. Please visit www.myotronics.com for more information.
It needs multiple appointments of fitting and bite adjustment This guard also stretches your muscle, and even helps sometimes with headaches.
Conscious Oral Sedation is an alternative minimal sedation that allows patients to remain awake but relaxed. For people who have a fear of dental procedures, conscious sedation may take away some of the anxiety. Under the medication, patients may feel very drowsy or even fall asleep, but will not become unconscious. The doctor will combine the use of oral sedation along with a local anesthetic so you have little to no discomfort. Patients should plan to have someone bring you to the appointment and be available to drive them home following treatment.
Our office also offers NuCalm® for patients with dental anxiety.
Developed by a leading neuroscientist to reduce extreme anxiety, this system can help patients enter a deep meditative state using headphones that play relaxing music, light-blocking glasses, mild electric nodes for the throat, and a GABBA amino acid supplement.
