Wisdom teeth removal
Wisdom teeth usually come in between 17 to 25 years of age. Sometimes when the wisdom tooth erupts, it may come out at an awkward angle that pushes against other teeth and cause pain and swelling in the gum and jaw area. The wisdom tooth may also get impacted and lead to toothache and create an environment for gum diseases and tooth decay.
In many cases, it would help the patient to get the wisdom tooth removed in order to prevent further complications. Wisdom teeth removal is a relatively simple and easy procedure if performed by a trained and experienced dentist.

Crowns and bridges
Dental crowns are used for cosmetic and restorative reasons. In a tooth that may have decayed severely, root canal treatment is usually recommended. After the procedure, the tooth structure will need to be protected with the help of a crown. Sometimes crowns are also used to cosmetically enhance the appearance of a tooth.
Dental bridges are used to fill gaps between the teeth. You may lose teeth due to accidents or diseases, and sometimes you may also need to get them extracted. Dental bridges are used to replace one tooth or several. They look very natural, so nobody will be able to tell that you have some of your natural teeth missing.
Learn more about how crowns and bridges can be used to restore functionality and improve the aesthetic appearance of your teeth.
