Life Expectancy

Dental Crowns or caps are used for restoration purposes after a root canal treatment or dental implant.

A dental crown is placed over a tooth and it helps restore the shape and size along with improving its appearance.

Functions of a Dental Crown:

1.       Provides support to a tooth’s structure.

2.       Improves the overall bite.

3.       Holds a dental bridge in place.

4.       Supports a severely damaged tooth.

92.3% (for anterior crowns) and 95.9% (for posterior crowns) 10-year survival rate for Porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM) crowns.1All-ceramic-crowns have 94.6% survival rate.2

A bridge is designed to provide additional support for teeth or implants.

It is made up of two or more crowns. They restore areas of the mouth where teeth have been extracted.

Functions of a Dental Bridge:

1.       Restores the natural bite.

2.       Can be anchored to existing teeth or an implant.

3.       Equally distributes the pressure.

4.       Prevents drifting of the remaining teeth.

Studies have found an 88% 5-year survival rate3.

Implant Dentistry for Restoration

A dental implant fuses with the jawbone to support a dental bridge or a crown. It is a replacement tooth root that is embedded into the jawbone. Implants are best suited for the edentulous or for people with multiple missing teeth.

Complete mouth rehabilitation can be done through All-on-4 Implants or All-on-6 and 8 Implants. Read on to find out the difference between the two.

The All-on-4 dental implant procedure is recommended for people who are edentulous or those who wear dentures and in need of full upper and/or lower restorations.The procedure utilizes four implants per dental arch. The All-on-6 implant technique uses six implants placed in areas of the mouth with the highest bone volume.

  1. The procedure is quicker as compared to traditional implants
  2. Reduced healing time
  3. Long term solution

According to AAID dental implants help stimulate bone growth and prevent bone loss


  1. Well suited for patients with a limited jawbone
  2. Does not require a bone graft procedure
  3. Fast recovery time
  4. Long term results and increased self-confidence
Paulo Maló, Miguel De Araújo Nobre and colleagues’ state success rate of all-on-4 implants is more than 90 percent.4 A study conducted by Pierre Simonis, Thomas Dufour, Henri Tenenbaum states the long term survival and success rate of dental implants is 82.94% after a 16-year observation period.5

Teeth whitening can be achieved by using toothpastes, over-the-counter gels, rinses and strips. It isn’t always necessary to go to a dentist for this procedure. However, professional teeth whitening is much more effective, safe and longer lasting!

Dental Bonding

It is considered best for decayed, chipped, cracked and discolored teeth. It is also used:

  1. To fill gaps between teeth
  2. To change the shape of teeth
  3. To make teeth look longer

Dental bonding uses tooth-colored resin material and a curing light to bond the material to the tooth. It has many benefits including:

  1. Tooth colored resin matches the color of your teeth giving you natural results
  2. Bonding gives your self-confidence a boost
  3. It takes few hours to complete the process depending on the number of teeth
  4. The procedure is reasonable and gives excellent results

Gum Re-contouring

The process of reshaping the gum tissue around the teeth is called gingival contouring or gum re-contouring. It corrects problems like:

  1. Uneven gum line and gummy smile
  2. Premature aging
  3. Delusion of teeth being too short or too long
  4. Redness and puffiness of the gums
  5. Crooked teeth

It corrects problems involving the temporomandibular joints (TMJs) and the bite. The temporomandibular joint connects your jawbone and skull and any problem with it can cause headaches and pains during jaw movement.

The staff is experienced in handling TMJ disorder and may prescribe pain relievers, sedatives and muscle relaxants to ease the pain. Treatments for TMJ disorder include:

  1. Bite guards
  2. Exercises to stretch and strengthen jaw muscles
  3. Surgery of the joint, if the above mentioned treatments do not resolve the problem


Orthodontic treatments are concerned with improper bite and misaligned teeth. Its treatment includes metal braces, spacers and retainers. Other complex treatments involve Orthognathic surgery for the jaw.


A very common form of orthodontic treatment involves applying brackets to each tooth, held together with arch wires
  1. Traditional metal braces
  2. Tooth colored ceramic braces
  3. Clear aligners (invisalign)
After the removal of braces, retainers can be used to secure your teeth in  the right place

Orthognathic Surgery

It is performed by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon to correct position of the upper and lower jaws. Some conditions that may require corrective jaw surgery include:

  • Difficulty in chewing, biting and swallowing food
  • Severe TMJ pain and headache
  • Birth defects and facial injury
  • Receding lower jaw and protruding upper jaw
  • Sleep apnea

Sana A. Ghannam and colleagues studied the motive behind the surgery and found esthetic improvement is a major cause for patients seeking Orthognathic Surgery6. According to the research there has been a significant improvement in quality of life, self-confidence and chewing functions of the patients who underwent Orthognathic Surgery.

Orthognathic Surgery Outcomes

Periodontal Treatments

This form of treatment is given to patients who have damaged soft tissues and bone that support the tooth. Also known as gum disease, it may progress to the bone and result in tooth loss.

It includes:

Periodontal Treatment


It is a process which removes plaque and tartar from the tooth surface. If scaling is not performed it may lead to loosening of gums and tooth loss. A routine periodontal check at every 6 months is recommended.
