Dentistry

Your dental health affects your whole body

Our dentist in Lima has a solid reputation and a clinic that surpasses many of those in North America in terms of technology and infrastructure while using very conservative techniques in all treatments. It also boasts specialist dentists in every dental category in just one place for all your dental needs:

Dental Implants

Always performed by a specially trained implantologist or periodontist, dental implants are the very best way to replace missing teeth, whether it be one missing tooth or a whole arch of missing teeth. Actually, the dental implant procedure is not as complex as most people think and is not a painful procedure at all. Placement of an implant can often happen in about 30 minutes or less.

A dental implant is a special screw which replaces the root of a missing tooth. Once placed, this normally needs three months to settle and heal in to the jaw bone before the final stage is completed. When you return to Lima after these three months have passed, the final stage requires two things; an abutment and the final crown. The abutment is a connector which holds the new crown firmly in place, attaching it to the implant.

In many cases and with modern techniques, an extraction, bone graft and placement of a dental implant can all happen on the same appointment, reducing your visits to the dentist, which is great news for anyone considering this procedure. Click here for more information.

Dental Rehabilitation & Reconstruction

Is a delicate treatment required when, for whatever the reason, a total reconstruction of the mouth is required due to broken teeth, missing teeth and bone loss. Reconstructing the dental health of a person who has been through this takes time, and these treatments require bone grafting, platelet-rich plasma to stimulate healing, dental implants, ceramic crowns, root canals, inlays and other things, too. This kind of treatment normally happens over two or three stages to allow healing after stage one which is to recover bone and tissue. Although this can be a long process, the results are absolutely worth it because it restores a complete new smile and most importantly, quality of life. Please email us for more information about this treatment.

Dental Crowns and Bridges

A dental crown, also known as a cap, is used to replace a single tooth that has suffered damage or destruction on the visible areas while the core and root of the tooth is still strong, healthy and in good condition. A crown is a full 360º restoration that sits on the remaining healthy structure of the tooth. A dental bridge is often used to ‘bridge the gap’ of a tooth that is already missing. For example, if you have one missing tooth, then you need a bridge of three teeth.

This is because the two adjacent teeth are used to anchor the bridge. However, we recommend placing a dental implant for missing teeth as a bridge requires the ‘shaving down’ and reduction of the two healthy teeth that act as anchors.  Please click here for more information about how these are made with 3D CAD CAM technology.

Porcelain Veneers

This is an excellent option to make your smile line whiter and more attractive. Veneers also correct small misalignments without the need for orthodontics and braces. These are a very popular treatment for patients of all ages and is different from a crown because the veneer only covers the front side of the tooth, correcting color, contour and shape.

Teeth Whitening

This is purely an aesthetic treatment used to improve the color of the teeth, break down stains and give a healthier, whiter smile. Teeth whitening is done in-clinic and is complete in about one hour.

Root Canal Treatments

This is a procedure normally used when a tooth is compromised and has an infection or abscess which can often cause a bad taste in the mouth. Performing a root canal treatment removes the live root of the tooth and gives access to the tip of the root where abscesses normally form. This way, the abscess is treated and the tooth is normally saved. Treating a tooth this way is often the last chance to save it before extraction is considered. Click here for more information.

Maxilofacial Surgeries

These are complex surgical treatments such as sinus lifts, bone grafting, tissue regeneration and wisdom teeth extractions.

Sinus Lifts

This is a very delicate surgical procedure used to create more bone and space for the placement of dental implants. A sinus lift is normally needed when teeth on the left or right side of the upper jaw have been missing for some time, causing the bone level to reduce and the sinus to become too low for the safe placement of implants. In this case, the surgeon uses a special procedure to lift the sinus and place bone in to the area, allowing the possibility of implant placement.

Bone Grafting & Tissue Regeneration

Often composed of synthetic bone particles, a graft is used to create stronger, healthy bone in the jaw where a tooth is extracted or a dental implant is to be placed. When removing teeth such as molars, a large space is left in the mouth and one of two things can happen if left to recover without additional treatments: Firstly, this bone can naturally take many months to recover to the correct level. Or secondly, it may not recover at all causing the bone in this area to reduce further, remain delicately thin and decreasing the possibility of safe implant placement at a later date.

Wisdom Teeth Extractions

Wisdom teeth are normally complex and difficult teeth to remove due to their tendency to grow at awkward angles and their proximity to the nerves in the lower jaw. Safe removal requires the experienced, steady hand of a specially trained maxillofacial surgeon.
