  • Endodontics

    Root canals are tiny passageways that branch off from beneath the top of the tooth, coursing their way vertically downward, until they reach the tip of the root.

All teeth have between one and four root canals.

Many tooth problems involve infections that spread to the pulp, which is the inner chamber of the tooth containing blood vessels, nerves and other tissues. When the infection becomes worse, it can begin affecting the roots. A traumatic injury to a tooth can also compromise the pulp, leading to similar problems. A diseased inner tooth brings a host of problems including pain and sensitivity as the first indications of a problem. However, inside a spreading infection can cause small pockets of pus to develop, which can lead to an abscess.

    Root canal therapy is a remarkable treatment with a very high rate of success, and involves removing the diseased tissue, halting the spread of infection and restoring the healthy portion of the tooth. Root canal treatment usually entails two to three visits. During the first visit, a small hole is drilled through the top of the tooth and into the inner chamber. Diseased tissue is removed, the inner chamber cleansed and disinfected, and the tiny canals reshaped. The cleansed chamber and canals are filled with an elastic material and medication designed to prevent infection. If necessary, the drilled hole is temporarily filled until a permanent seal is made with a crown.
  • Implantology

    Missing teeth can create many oral health problems such as instability, gum disease, decay, and more tooth loss. Dental implants are an excellent solution for replacing missing teeth—and the benefits of implants make them an optimal tooth replacement solution. Dental implants:
    • Look like your natural teeth.
    • Allow you to eat and speak comfortably.
    • Give you confidence to smile again.
    • Are strong and durable.
    • Can eliminate the inconvenience of removable dental prostheses.

    Dental implants begin with a biocompatible post placed into your jawbone. Once the site is healed, and the bone fused around the post, one of our dentists can place your dental implant restoration. Many of our dentists use porcelain crowns on single posts, or use the posts to attach your dental devices, such as a crown or bridge, or even a full set of dentures.
  • Orthodontics

Our highly skilled orthodontic specialists offer not only the commonly known braces but also see-trough braces and invisible braces (braces hidden behind the teeth).
    Whatever the reason for your interest in orthodontic treatment might be (aesthetics, pain, dysfunction etc.), don’t hesitate to ask us about it or visit our new website for more information: www.orthodents.nl
  • Periodontology – Dental hygiene

    Some cases of acute periodontal (gum) disease that do not respond to more conventional treatment and self-care may require a special kind of cleaning called scaling and root planing. Small instruments called a scaler or an ultrasonic cleaner are used to clean beneath your gum line to remove plaque and tartar. The root surfaces on the tooth are then planed and smoothed. If effective, scaling and root planing helps the gums reattach themselves to the tooth structure. Additional measures may be needed if the periodontal pockets persist after scaling and root planing.

    A dental hygienist and/or a preventive dental assistant can give you information on how to optimise your oral condition.
