Dentist in Portland OR - An interview with Dr. Ron Enayati
Dr. Ron Enayati is a dentist and has answered some of the common questions Bizymoms visitors have about Dental Care.
Q. How key is dental care to over all health?
A. Dental care is very important to overall health since infection in the mouth can cause problems throughout the body.
Q. What are dental implants?
A. Dental implants are small metal screws designed specifically to replace your natural tooth root. Manufactured from titanium, dental implants provide a highly biocompatible surface, encouraging bone to attach to the implant during the healing process to ensure long-term results. Implants do not require adjacent teeth to be modified and also stimulate underlying bone. Restoration with all-ceramic crowns and connections result in a very natural-looking tooth.
Q. Are there any side effects from using dental implants?
A. The only drawback to implants is the possibility that the implant may not fully integrate with the bone and have to be replaced.
Q. What is dental bonding?
A. Bonding is replacing tooth structure with tooth colored material that is bonded to the tooth with special adhesives, usually cured with a special light. Bonding on back teeth is becoming increasing feasible due to advances in dental materials.
Q. One of your services is Full Mouth Rehabilitation, what is this?
A. Full mouth reconstruction, full mouth rehabilitation and full mouth restoration are terms often used interchangeably to describe the process of rebuilding or simultaneously restoring all of the teeth in both the upper and lower jaws.
The need for full mouth reconstruction may result from:
* Teeth that have been lost due to decay or trauma.
* Teeth that have been injured or fractured.
* Teeth that have become severely worn as a result of long-term acid erosion (foods, beverages, acid reflux) or tooth grinding.
* Ongoing complaints of jaw, muscle and headache.
Full Mouth Rehabilitation is replacing all the natural teeth with restorations.
Q. What can a person do about stained and colored teeth?
A. Stained teeth are a very common problem and can be treated in a variety of different methods depending on the type of staining and the result wanted.
People’s teeth vary greatly in colour. Some people’s teeth are naturally dark or yellowish and so appear dull or stained. In large part, teeth staining occurs as a result of environmental factors such as diet and habits, such as smoking. Teeth staining can be broadly categorised as follows:
Superficial surface stains – these are stains that can be removed by brushing with a whitening toothpaste or a professional scale and polish / clean at your dental practice. Some superficial stains cannot be removed by a simple scale and polish.
Deep embedded stains – these result from the stains working their way into the structure of the teeth. Typical examples include stains caused by coffee, red wine, foods such as Indian curry and nicotine stains from smoking. These stains cannot be removed by a hygiene appointment at your dentists or brushing with whitening toothpastes at home. For deep stains, professional teeth-whitening treatment is required, which is where the active whitening product - peroxide - penetrates the tooth surface and bleaches the teeth.
Inherited or developmental stains - some stains or discolorations are inherited, whereas others occur during tooth development. Tetracycline antibiotics taken during tooth development can cause a greyish stain to be incorporated deep within the tooth structure. Although some whitening products may work on tetracycline-induced stains - such as the Enlighten deep bleaching system - some stains cannot be removed by professional teeth whitening. In such cases, porcelain veneers or cosmetic bonding may be your only option to cover the stains on your teeth. With veneers, you can choose the exact shade of teeth that you want, as well as having the option of changing the overall shape of your teeth and smile. However, tooth structure will need to be removed to prepare the teeth for veneers.
