Mickey and the staff were absolutely great and I felt very relaxed and was made to feel at home (I'm a very nervous patient and don't like needles either) the quote I got was very good and I will be taking up the treatment once I know where I am with a few things.i have no doubt at all that I will be looked after and I feel absolutely confident with the treatment plan I was given and it was very thorough and everything was covered in fine detail. I would highly recommend.
There are two main types of dental fillings: direct and indirect.
Direct restorations are shaped and cured directly inside the prepared tooth. Indirect fillings (also called inlays) are first designed and cured outside the mouth and then are fitted to the tooth like inserting a piece into a puzzle.
We provide both types of these aesthetic dental restorations here at Lotus Clinic. Direct fillings are made from a composite resin dental material that can be coloured to match your natural tooth shade. The indirect fillings are milled on site in a CEREC machine that carves solid inlays out of ceramic blocks.
To create an indirect restoration that precisely fits your tooth, we will take a digital scan of your teeth. There is no need for taking any messy dental impressions.
Depending on the size and shape of the tooth you need to restore, your Lotus Clinic dentist will recommend either a white filling or a ceramic inlay.
Root canal treatment does not take much time at all. Most treatments are completed within 30 to 60 minutes. Some complex cases may take as long as 90 minutes.
A few common signs that your tooth nerve is inflamed and may need to be treated with root canal treatment include:
Metal fillings are unpopular these days, but they are strong and durable. If you currently have silver fillings that were placed many years ago, they should be checked by a dentist. As long as those metal fillings are still doing their job, you should not rush to replace them with white ones. A Lotus Clinic dentist can examine your fillings and let you know whether you should update them with white fillings or even a dental crown.
A regular dental filling does not address problems involving the nerve of the tooth. You need a filling if you have a cavity that has not reached the centre of your tooth. If the decay has reached the centre or is close to doing so, however, then the nerve of your tooth is compromised and needs to be treated with root canal treatment. Only a dentist who can examine your tooth with X-rays can tell you which treatment you need.
Getting root canal treatment when it is indicated can let you keep your tooth, which is the ideal outcome. If you do not treat your tooth, the infection can spread and worsen to the point that your tooth will have to be extracted. After that, your next best option may be to replace the tooth with a dental implant.
I have been treated by Dr Frankl and his team for nearly two decades now. He has always been caring and professional to the highest degree, and available at times of need. His clinic has a calming elegant feel, being fitted with the most impressive up-to date equipment. In short, I highly recommend the Lotus clinic.
