Implants are a fixed alternative to removable dentures. They may be the only option if the loss of teeth has caused the mouth to shrink so it can no longer support dentures.
Periodontal or gum disease is an infection that affects the gums and jaw bone, which can lead to a loss of gum and teeth.
Root canals treat diseases or absessed teeth. Once a tooth is injured, cracked or decayed, it is necessary to open the tooth and clean out the infected tissue in the centre.
Teeth naturally darken with age, however staining may be caused by various foods and beverages such as coffee, tea and berries, smoking, or a trauma to a tooth.
