Restoration Techniques


A cavity diagnosed early enough, which involves repair of less than 50% of the tooth, can usually be restored with a ‘filling’. Our standard material for this procedure is composite resin [discussed under’ Alternative materials to amalgam’]. SANJEEVANI DENTAL CLINIC does not use mercury/silver amalgam for reasons outlined further on. [see Amalgam – why is there a problem?]

Inlays and Onlays
Where there is 60 – 80% tooth loss but a section of tooth strong enough to be self supporting remains, porcelain or occasionally gold have the strength to be used to replace the missing tooth.

Crown and Bridge
Where maximum strength or retention are needed, then the tooth will be restored with the full coverage restoration referred to as a crown. Crowns can be linked together with ‘pontics’ to create bridgework which will fill the gaps left by missing teeth.

Implants now have a record of success spanning 40 years, and over. At SANJEEVANI DENTAL CLINIC we have been working with implants, and have found them useful for a range of procedures, starting with the replacement of a single tooth, up to the restoration of a whole arch. The stabilising of dentures is another use patients have found to be highly beneficial. We would be happy to discuss your individual needs in this exciting area of dentistry that is genuinely offering patients a ‘second chance’ when their teeth have been lost due to accident or disease.


Full Dentures
Where all your teeth have been lost, the provision of plastic upper and lower dentures is the norm, and we are happy to provide this service. Even when all due care is taken, many patients experience problems with stability and retention, particularly with the lower denture, which does not generate suction like the upper denture often can, and it also has to cope with the movement of the tongue during speech and when chewing. Many people simply adapt to these shortcomings, but they can be greatly reduced by the provision of implants. [see IMPLANTS]

Partial Dentures
Where some of your teeth remain, the spaces can be filled with a partial denture. This is the most inexpensive way of coping with the problem. However they suffer to a greater or lesser extent from the same drawbacks as full dentures. In addition, a partial denture will rub around the necks of the remaining teeth compromising healthy gums. Food packing between Teeth and denture can also be an issue. The cheapest partial dentures are made of plastic. Lessening of the problems can however be achieved with the greater accuracy in fabrication provided by a metal casting to provide the framework. Avoiding the problems of Partial dentures can be achieved by looking at the ‘fixed’ solutions provided by bridgework or implants.
