Dental crown lengthening

If you have “gummy” smile and want procedures to correct a “gummy” smile because your teeth appear short. You can kindly ask your dentist about dental crown lengthening. Actuallu your teeth may actually be the proper lengths, but they’re covered with too much gum tissue. To correct this, your dentist performs a dental crown lengthening procedure.

During the dental crown lengthening procedure, excess gum and bone tissue is reshaped to expose more of the natural tooth. This can be done to one tooth, to even your gum line, or to several teeth to expose a natural, broad smile.

Your dentist may also do dental crown lengthening to make a restorative or cosmetic dental procedure possible. Perhaps your tooth is decayed, broken below the gum line, or has insufficient tooth structure for a restoration, such as a crown or bridge. Crown lengthening adjusts the gum and bone level to expose more of the tooth so it can be restored.

False Teeth / Gigi Tiruan

Seringkali kita terpaksa kehilangan gigi dikarenakan gigi berlubang yang tidak dapat dipertahankan lagi dengan perawatan saluran akar ataupun karena trauma fisik seperti kecelakaan. Setelah kehilangan gigi kita akan langsung berpikir untuk menggantinya dengan gigi tiruan untuk mempertahanka aspek estetik wajah dan fungsi pengunyahan. Berikut saya jelaskan beberapa jenis gigi tiruan :

1. GIGI TIRUAN LEPASAN / REMOVABLE DENTURE
Gigi tiruan lepasan adalah gigi tiruan yang dapat dilepas dan dipasang. Ini merupakan jenis gigi tiruan yang paling murah dengan rentang harga 150-250k / gigi.. Kekurangannya adalah biasanya gigi tiruan jenis ini menimbulkan bau yang tidak sedap, akan tidak fit / longgar setelah pemakaian beberapa bulan, dan harus diperbaharui setiap 2-3 tahun.

2. GIGI TIRUAN JEMBATAN / BRIDGE DENTURE
Gigi tiruan jembatan merupakan gigi tiruan yang didesain untuk permanen melekat pada gigi tetangganya. Gigi tiruan jembatan tidak perlu dilepas pasang dan tidak menimbulkan bau mulut. Gigi tiruan jembatan biasanya dibuat dari bahan porcelain fused to metal atau full porcelain ataupun zirconia. Kekurangan dari gigi tiruan jembatan adalah dibutuhkan gigi tetangga untuk menyangga gigi tiruan jembatan ini sehingga tidak dapat dilakukan pada kasus di mana tidak dapat gigi tetangga untuk menyangga nya.

3. GIGI TANAM / IMPLANT DENTURE
Gigi tanam, alias implant merupakan jenis gigi tiruan yang paling ideal saat ini.  dibuat dari bahan yang telah diteliti selama puluhan tahun sehingga dapat diterima dengan baik oleh tulang rahang manusia. Gigi implant tidak membutuhkan gigi tetangga untuk menyangga nya karena akan langsung di”tanam’ ke dalam tulang rahang dan sangat baik dari aspek estetik maupun aspek fungsi pengunyahan.

 

 

Occasionally we need to pull out our teeth since it was rotten badly and cant be saved by a root canal treatment or caused by an accident. After we pull out the teeth, we should replace it with a fake one immediately. i would like to give some information about some kind of false teeth :

1. Removable denture
Removable denture is an old-fashioned false teeth with a plate-usually in pink color. This kind of false teeth is the cheapest one with the range of 150-250k/tooth. the disadvantage of this kind is it caused a bad smell in the mouth and breathe, it will not fit your gum and jaw after several month usage. and you should replace  with a new one every 2-3 years in order to prevent the loose of the false teeth

2. BRIDGE DENTURE
Bridge denture is designed to attached with the ‘neighbor teeth’ of the missing one. this bridge denture is very strong and durable in usage since it is usually made from porcelain fused to metal, full porcelain or even zirconia. The weakness of bridge denture is it needs ‘neighbor teeth’ to support the ‘bridge’ but it is reasonable option to considered

3. IMPLANT DENTURE
Implant is the newest and the ideal of fake tooth human being have ever known until now. implant is made from a metal that had been in research for many years so the material will not be rejected by the jaw. Imp;ant doesnt need supporting teeth because this implant will be inserted to the jaw and is very good in aesthetic and function.
