Did you know that the average adult between the ages of 20 and 64 has three or more decayed or missing teeth? If you are missing one or more teeth, there are plenty of reasons to correct the problem. For one thing, a large space between your teeth may affect how you speak or eat. Even if it’s not noticeable, a missing molar can affect how you chew. Remaining teeth may shift and in some cases, bone loss can occur around a missing tooth.
At Kmet some of the options we offer to replace a lost tooth or teeth are through dentures: partial acrylic denture and complete denture.
Tooth decay is also one of the major reason one may need a filling. With today’s advances, you don’t have to suffer from missing teeth. At Kmet, we offer three types of filling: temporary, composite and amalgam filling. Temporary filling is best under the following conditions.
· Following a root canal
· To allow a tooth’s nerve to “settle down” if the pulp became irritated
· If emergency dental treatment is needed (such as to address a toothache)
· For fillings that require more than one appointment – for example, before placement of gold fillings and for certain filling procedures (called indirect fillings) that use composite materials
At Kmet, some options we use to replace a lost tooth or teeth are through dentures: partial acrylic denture and complete denture. This is done if you’ve lost all or most of your teeth. A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. Two types of dentures are available — complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remains.
Other dental services offered are Acrylic crown, acrylic bridge per unit, surgical dismpaction, root canal treatment, polishing and simple extraction.
