Jacket crown

It is a type of crown that is formed by a tooth colored material. It is mainly used as a single unit in the anterior quadrant of the mouth. It is the weakest type of crown because the tooth colored materials are weaker and more brittle than metal. It can be divided into 2 types according to the material from which it is formed:

Acrylic Jacket Crown

The acrylic jacket crown may be used as a temporary crown or for crowning a tooth of a patient under 18 years of age, until full eruption finishes to the tooth, and then a final crown (full veneer crown or porcelain jacket crown)

White Metal

NC Crown
NC Crown with Faceing

Metals used in crowns include gold alloy, other alloys (for example, palladium) or a base-metal alloy (for example, nickel or chromium). Compared with other crown types, less tooth structure needs to be removed with metal crowns, and tooth wear to opposing teeth is kept to a minimum. Metal crowns withstand biting and chewing forces well and probably last the longest in terms of wear down. Also, metal crowns rarely chip or break. The metallic color is the main drawback. Metal crowns are a good choice for out-of-sight molars.

Ceramic

Half Ceramic

All-ceramic or all-porcelain dental crowns provide the most aesthetically pleasing choice than any other crown type and may be more suitable for people with metal allergies. However, they are not as strong as porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns and they wear down opposing teeth a little more than metal or resin crowns.  All-ceramic crowns are a good choice for front teeth.

Full Ceramic
Ceramics have reached a high quality and standard of usage in dentistry, today they represent an indispensable substance for preservation and prosthetic therapy. With outstanding bio-compatibility, the aesthetic possibilities are almost unlimited.
The smooth surface of ceramic hinders deposits of plaque and tartar, which makes the ceramic very easy to clean. Plaque finds it very difficult to attach itself to the extremely hard surface, so the gums around the crowns stay healthy.
 
Full ceramics enable this treatment to be used for people who suffer from a metal allergy. 
 
Ceramic is a very hard material, the surface and the colour do not change with the passing of time. Ceramic tooth replacements are therefore very stable and long-lasting

Acrylic

Dental acrylic is something that you cannot skimp on. After all, acrylics are used for all sorts of procedures – from impressions to dentures. If you get the wrong acrylic, you can wind up with crowns and veneers that don’t fit right, repairs that don’t last, and dental work that looks unnatural.

At excludent.com, we have a variety of high-quality powder and paste acrylics, including:

Dental acrylic resin that can be used for impressions Dental acrylic veneer that goes over crowns to make them look more natural Dental acrylic that’s used for temporary procedures – like temporary crowns, veneers, and bridges Dental acrylic that’s used to repair dentures Dental acrylic that’s used to make retainers, bite guards, and mouthpieces

Removable Partial Denture(R.P.D)
RPD
A removable partial denture (RPD) is for a partially edentulous dental patient who desires to have replacement teeth for functional or aesthetic reasons, and who cannot have a bridge (a fixed partial denture) for any number of reasons, such as a lack of required teeth to serve as support for a bridge (i.e. distal abutments) or due to financial limitations.
The reason why this type of prosthesis is referred to as a removable partial denture is because patients can remove and reinsert them when required without professional help. Conversely, a "fixed" prosthesis can and should be removed only by a dental professional.
Removable partial dentures (RPD) by the Excludent Dental Group are an option if you are missing teeth and are not a candidate for permanent tooth replacement. Partial dentures provide a cost effective way to replace missing teeth and restore chewing function. The Excludent Dental Group will work with you to determine the best solution for you.

C.D.(Complete Denture)
Complete dentures are made of different materials depending on patient condition and patient preferences.

Complete dentures can be either "conventional" or "immediate." Made after the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has begun to heal, a conventional denture is ready for placement in the mouth about 8 to 12 weeks after the teeth have been removed.

 

Unlike conventional dentures, immediate dentures are made in advance and can be positioned as soon as the teeth are removed. As a result, the wearer does not have to be without teeth during the healing period. However, bones and gums shrink over time, especially during the healing period following tooth removal. Therefore a disadvantage of immediate dentures compared with conventional dentures is that they require more adjustments to fit properly during the healing process and generally should only be considered a temporary solution until conventional dentures can be made.

Temporary Crown

A temporary crown is a provisional, short term restoration used in dentistry. Usually the temporary crown is constructed from a chemical-cure composite, although alternative systems using aluminium crown forms are occasionally used by practitioners. The temporary material is shaped by the dentist to form a tooth shape that protects the prepared tooth, prevents damage to the periodontal tissues (gums) and disguises the prepared tooth to a degree until the final, definitive restoration can be made by a dental technician.
A temporary crown will usually be cemented in place with a soft temporary dental cement, such as Temp-Bond NE. This allows easy removal when fitting the definitve restoration. If a temporary crown becomes decemented, it is important that a dentist examine the patient as overeruption of the opposing teeth may prevent accurate fitting of the final crown.

Ortho Dontic's

Orthodontics, orthodontia, or orthodonture (from Greek orthos "straight or proper"; and odous "tooth") is the first specialty of dentistry that is concerned with the study and treatment of malocclusions (improper bites), which may be a result of tooth irregularity, disproportionate jaw relationships, or both. Orthodontic treatment can focus on dental displacement only, or can deal with the control and modification of facial growth. In the latter case it is better defined as "dentofacial orthopaedics". Orthodontic treatment can be carried out for purely aesthetic reasons with regards to improving the general appearance of patients' teeth. However, there are orthodontists who work on reconstructing the entire face rather than focusing exclusively on teeth.

Retention/Retraction Plate

Twin Block

Twin block appliances

 

The Twin Block is a removable (ie. you can take it out), functional appliance. It is made up of two components, an upper and lower plate, which works together to posture the lower jaw forward. This frees up the “locked-in” lower jaw and encourages it to grow to its fullest potential. The upper (and sometimes lower) plate may also have an expansion screw to widen the arch.

Night Gaurds


Night Guards
As we age we start to see signs of wear in our teeth. Often even younger patients or patients in high stress periods of life have slight to moderate or even sever signs of wear on their teeth.
Often the simplest solution to prevent further damage is to have a night guard appliance fabricated. Many patient are unaware of their habit as it occurs at night when they are sleeping or often it occurs when we are focused at work in front of the computer or other tasks involving a high level of focus.

Anterior/Posterior bite plane

Biteplate is an appliance widely used in orthodontic treatment for many purposes. It can be removable (can be taken out of the mouth by the patient) or fixed (cemented in the mouth and removed only at the end of treatment by the dentist).
 
In orthodontics there are 2 types of biteplates:
1) Anterior biteplates
2) Posterior biteplates
Note: In the vast majority of circumstances, biteplate refers to the anterior biteplate rather than the posterior biteplate due to its more frequent use
Anterior biteplates
An anterior biteplate is an appliance that would fit snuggly to the palate of the patient (roof of the mouth) and disarticulates the front teeth (stops the upper and lower front teeth from touching each other). The appliance is retained in the mouth with the help of the clasps found in the appliance. Adams clasps around the molars and ball clasps in the space between teeth are most commonly used for this purpose of retention.
Posterior biteplates
Same concept as an anterior biteplate except it comes between upper and lower posterior teeth, causing an amount of space to be available between the upper and lower anterior teeth. This in turn would allow the anterior teeth to erupt.
