It can cause jaw pain and damage to your teeth and jaws. Orthodontal treatment such as metal braces or Invislalign® aligners can straighten your teeth and give you a healthier smile.</p> <img class="img-fluid mb-2" alt=Invisalign" src="/files/images/mainimages/main-invis.jpg"> <h2 class="mt-2 h2alt">Metal Braces</h2> <p>Traditional metal braces are the “tried-and-true” method to realign your teeth. Using springs and wires, the braces gradually reposition your teeth so they are straighter. Treatment with braces usually takes approximately two years, depending on the amount of correction you need.</p> <h2 class="mt-2 h2alt">Invisalign Clear Aligners</h2> <p>Invisalign aligners are an alternative to braces. These clear plastic aligners work much the same way as braces to reposition your teeth, but they are virtually invisible when they are worn. The aligners can also be removed while you brush your teeth or eat.</p> <p>To learn more about how you can get straighter teeth, call us to make an appointment.</p> </div> Tue, 27 Aug 2019 03:33:43 +0000 admin 33 at https://www.12thavenuedental.com Endodontics in Calgary https://www.12thavenuedental.com/services/endodontics-calgary <span>Endodontics in Calgary</span> <span><span lang="" about="/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">admin</span></span> <span>Mon, 08/26/2019 - 22:27</span> <div><p>Root canal therapy is a common and well-known dental treatment used to save teeth that are infected or damaged. In a nutshell, root canal treatment involves the removal of the soft, vulnerable tissue inside the tooth to treat and prevent infection.</p> <img class="img-fluid mb-2" alt=Endo" src="/files/images/mainimages/main-endo.jpg"> <h2 class="mt-2 h2alt">How does root canal treatment work?</h2> <p>The soft tissue inside your tooth, called the pulp, is a bundle of blood vessels and nerves. If the tooth is damaged and bacteria get to the pulp an infection can result. Left untreated, this infection can spread to the gums and bone tissue above the tooth and cause a dangerous infection called an abscess. This can result in the loss of the tooth and damage to the surrounding tissues.</p> <p>When a tooth is damaged, we drill a hole in it and remove the pulp. Then we clean the inside of the tooth and seal it to prevent bacteria from entering, and we restore the tooth with a crown.</p> <h2 class="mt-2 h2alt">Aren’t root canals painful?</h2> <p>While root canal therapy has a reputation for being painful, with modern techniques the procedure is usually no more uncomfortable than having a tooth filled. The treatment is done under a local anesthetic and we provide sedation dentistry for anxious patients.</p> <p>If you’re suffering from a severe toothache, your tooth may have become infected.

Restorations are used in cases of decay or injury and are intended to prevent further damage to the tooth. Most restorations are made from tooth-coloured materials to match the natural shade of your other teeth.</p> <img class="img-fluid mb-2" alt="Dental Xray" src="/files/images/mainimages/main-restorations.jpg"> <h2 class="mt-2 h2alt">Related Videos</h2> <div class="row mb-2"> <div class="col-sm-4 col-12 mt-sm-1 mt-2 pl-4 pr-4 pr-sm-1 pl-sm-1"><div class="optio-thumbnail" data-video-id="dentistry/decay/crown"></div></div> <div class="col-sm-4 col-12 mt-sm-1 mt-2 pl-4 pr-4 pr-sm-1 pl-sm-1"><div class="optio-thumbnail" data-video-id="dentistry/decay/filling"></div></div> <div class="col-sm-4 col-12 mt-sm-1 mt-2 pl-4 pr-4 pr-sm-1 pl-sm-1"><div class="optio-thumbnail" data-video-id="dentistry/decay/inlay_onlay"></div></div> </div> <h2 class="mt-3 mb-1 h2alt">Fillings</h2> <p>We use fillings to repair cavities caused by decay, and to restore teeth after root canal treatment. Fillings can be made from amalgam or tooth-coloured composite to suit your needs.</p> <h2 class="mt-3 mb-1 h2alt">Crowns</h2> <p>Crowns, or caps, are used to completely replace a damaged tooth. Crowns have traditionally been made from metal, usually gold, but are now usually made from ceramic or porcelain. They are designed and shaded to match the rest of your other teeth.</p> <h2 class="mt-3 mb-1 h2alt">Inlays & Onlays</h2> <p>In cases where a tooth can’t be repaired with a filling, but it doesn’t require a crown, we may use a restoration called an inlay. These restorations are created in a dental laboratory and cemented in place in the damaged area. Once they are in place they strengthen the structure of the tooth. Onlays provide additional strength to restore the biting areas of the tooth being repaired.</p> <h2 class="mt-3 mb-1 h2alt">Bridges</h2> <p>Bridges are the traditional replacement for one or more lost teeth in a row. The bridge is made of the replacement tooth or teeth, and a way of attaching the bridge to the natural teeth on either side of the gap. Most bridges are held in place by dental crowns placed over the adjacent teeth.</p> <h2 class="mt-3 h2alt">More Related Videos</h2> <div class="row"> <div class="col-sm-4 col-12 mt-sm-1 mt-2 pl-4 pr-4 pr-sm-1 pl-sm-1"><div class="optio-thumbnail" data-video-id="dentistry/decay/root_canal"></div></div> <div class="col-sm-4 col-12 mt-sm-1 mt-2 pl-4 pr-4 pr-sm-1 pl-sm-1"><div class="optio-thumbnail" data-video-id="dentistry/decay/extraction"></div></div> <div class="col-sm-4 col-12 mt-sm-1 mt-2 pl-4 pr-4 pr-sm-1 pl-sm-1"><div class="optio-thumbnail" data-video-id="dentistry/decay/about"></div></div> <div class="col-sm-4 col-12 mt-sm-1 mt-2 pl-4 pr-4 pr-sm-1 pl-sm-1"><div class="optio-thumbnail" data-video-id="dentistry/cusp/crown_lengthening"></div></div> </div> <p>If you have a cavity or an injured tooth call our office to make an appointment.</p> </div></div> Fri, 19 Oct 2018 19:59:38 +0000 admin 19 at https://www.12thavenuedental.com Preventative Dentistry in Calgary https://www.12thavenuedental.com/services/preventative-dentistry-calgary <span>Preventative Dentistry in Calgary</span> <span><span lang="" about="/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">admin</span></span> <span>Fri, 10/19/2018 - 14:58</span> <div><p>Brushing and flossing are vital to good dental health, but did you know that they don’t remove tartar from your teeth?

The implant is surgically implanted in the bone tissue of your jaws. Once it’s in place, it permanently bonds to the natural bone tissue in your jaw and can be used to support a replacement tooth or implant-mounted bridge or denture. Because the implant is bonded to your bone tissue, it provides an extremely strong foundation for the replacement tooth or teeth. Also, the presence of the implant stimulates bone growth in the area, preventing the bone loss that can sometimes occur when a tooth is lost.</p> <p>To learn more about dental implants or to make an appointment please contact our office.</p> <h2 class="mt-3 h2alt">More Related Videos</h2> <div class="row"> <div class="col-sm-4 col-12 mt-sm-0 mt-2 pl-4 pr-4 pr-sm-1 pl-sm-1"><div class="optio-thumbnail" data-video-id="dentistry/missing_teeth/not_replaced"></div></div> <div class="col-sm-4 col-12 mt-sm-0 mt-2 pl-4 pr-4 pr-sm-1 pl-sm-1"><div class="optio-thumbnail" data-video-id="dentistry/implants/about"></div></div> </div> </div> </div> Thu, 11 Oct 2018 18:37:02 +0000 admin 15 at https://www.12thavenuedental.com
