What are implants? Implants are an alternative to dentures and bridges, but they are more expensive. Implants are titanium rods which are surgically placed into the jawbone and act as anchors for fastening dentures or crowns onto.
Fillings Dental fillings are used to restore missing tooth structure by filling the cavity (hole). Typically, the decayed portion of your tooth will be removed and the area filled with the most suitable filling material.
What is root canal treatment and when is it necessary? Root canal treatment (also called ‘endodontics’) is needed when the blood or nerve supply of the tooth (called the ‘pulp’) is infected through decay or injury. You may not feel any pain in the early stages of the infection.
