Our mission

 

Mission

Just like the world around us, the world of dentistry is constantly on the move. Today’s high quality oral care means that people not only keep their teeth much longer than they used to, but also that people set great store by what their teeth look like. These trends mean that dentists continue to carry out standard dental treatment. However, keeping up to date with the latest technical developments in dentistry also enables us to perform more complex, tailor-made procedures and therapies. De behandelingen die hij verricht vergen daarom ook meer tijd en inspanning.

 Our mission

Our mission is to provide our patients with the highest standard of personalised dental care.

What we offer

Our professional , state-of-the-art treatments are always explained clearly and thoroughly. And because we believe in getting to know the person behind the patient, you will soon feel at ease in a comfortable and safe environment.

Crown & Bridges

What are Dental Crowns and Tooth Bridges?
Both crowns and most bridges are fixed prosthetic devices. Unlike removable devices such as dentures, which you can take out and clean daily, crowns and bridges are cemented onto existing teeth or implants, and can only be removed by a dentist.

How do Crowns Work?
A crown is used to entirely cover or "cap" a damaged tooth. Besides strengthening a damaged tooth, a crown can be used to improve its appearance, shape or alignment. A crown can also be placed on top of an implant to provide a tooth-like shape and structure for function. Porcelain or ceramic crowns can be matched to the color of your natural teeth. Other materials include gold and metal alloys, acrylic and ceramic. These alloys are generally stronger than porcelain and may be recommended for back teeth. Porcelain bonded to a metal shell is often used because it is both strong and attractive.

Your dentist may recommend a crown to:

  • Replace a large filling when there isn't enough tooth remaining
  • Protect a weak tooth from fracturing
  • Restore a fractured tooth
  • Attach a bridge
  • Cover a dental implant
  • Cover a discolored or poorly shaped tooth
  • Cover a tooth that has had root canal treatment

How do Bridges Work?
A bridge may be recommended if you're missing one or more teeth. Gaps left by missing teeth eventually cause the remaining teeth to rotate or shift into the empty spaces, resulting in a bad bite. The imbalance caused by missing teeth can also lead to gum disease and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders.

Bridges are commonly used to replace one or more missing teeth. They span the space where the teeth are missing. Bridges are cemented to the natural teeth or implants surrounding the empty space. These teeth, called abutments, serve as anchors for the bridge. A replacement tooth, called a pontic, is attached to the crowns that cover the abutments. As with crowns, you have a choice of materials for bridges. Your dentist can help you decide which to use, based on the location of the missing tooth (or teeth), its function, aesthetic considerations and cost. Porcelain or ceramic bridges can be matched to the color of your natural teeth.

How are Crowns and Bridges Made?
Before either a crown or a bridge can be made, the tooth (or teeth) must be reduced in size so that the crown or bridge will fit over it properly. After reducing the tooth/teeth, your dentist will take an impression to provide an exact mold for the crown or bridge. If porcelain is to be used, your dentist will determine the correct shade for the crown or bridge to match the color of your existing teeth.

Using this impression, a dental lab then makes your crown or bridge, in the material your dentist specifies. A temporary crown or bridge will be put in place to cover the prepared tooth while the permanent crown or bridge is being made. When the permanent crown or bridge is ready, the temporary crown or bridge is removed, and the new crown or bridge is cemented over your prepared tooth or teeth.

How Long do Crowns and Bridges Last?
While crowns and bridges can last a lifetime, they do sometimes come loose or fall out. The most important step you can take to ensure the longevity of your crown or bridge is to practice good oral hygiene. A bridge can lose its support if the teeth or bone holding it in place are damaged by dental disease. Keep your gums and teeth healthy by Brushing with fluoride toothpaste twice a day and flossing daily. Also see your dentist and hygienist regularly for checkups and professional cleanings.

To prevent damage to your new crown or bridge, avoid chewing hard foods, ice or other hard objects.

Dental Hygienist

 

What Is A Dental Hygienist?

Most of us have heard of dentists. Fewer have heard of a dental hygienist — and even those that have heard of them might wonder what they do.

A dental hygienist is an important part of your dental team. In fact, you have probably worked closely with a dental hygienist without realizing it.

What Does a Dental Hygienist Do?

Most simply, hygienists provide full oral health care, focusing on the prevention and treatment of oral disease. They often work with a dentist, orthodontist, or other dental specialists, and may perform many tasks, including:

  • Patient screening and intake procedures
  • Taking and developing x-rays of your teeth (called radiographs)
  • Basic cleaning of your teeth
  • Applying sealants, fluorides, or other substances for preventing tooth decay
  • Assisting with procedures in cosmetic dentistry
  • Helping educate patients on proper oral care

Some specialized hygienists might also be licensed to administer local anesthesia or do sizing for braces and other orthodontic work. In smaller practices, hygienists might also help out with research and office work. It is quite likely that the first face you see when you walk into an office is that of a dental hygienist!

How Does a Dental Hygienist Differ from a Dentist?

Given all that they do, it is natural to wonder how a hygienist differs from a dentist, and what unique contributions they lend to a dental team.

One way to think of the difference is that between general care and specialized procedures. For example, a dental hygienist might do general teeth cleaning, which does not vary much from person to person. But it will be a dentist who diagnoses a cavity and gives you a filling. In general, dentists go through more education and training to do this (though, in some cases, a hygienist will have extensive amounts of education, too). Both professionals, however, go through extensive training and must earn a license to practice. This division of labor helps patients, too. Seeing a skilled dentist costs more per hour, so the more a dental hygienist can take care of a patient’s general needs, the less costly the overall visit will be.

It is likely, then, that much of your interaction will be with a hygienist, especially if you are visiting the office for a routine cleaning.

How Does a Person Become a Hygienist?

Typically, a person has to have an associates’ degree and go through two years of training before they can take the exam to become a licensed hygienist. The training period includes both classroom and lab time, as well as clinical experience in an actual practice. This training helps ensure that knowledgeable, dedicated professionals are in charge of the care of your teeth.

Here’s a fun fact: The first meeting of the American Dental Hygienist Association took place all the way back in 1923, which means that the profession has been around in its current form for almost 100 years. There are well over 230 accredited training programs nationwide for this career, and over 200,000 practitioners. The field tends to attract people who combine both caring, intelligence, and the ability to excel at several types of tasks.

Dental Pulp

 

What Is Dental Pulp?

The pulp or pulp chamber is the soft area within the center of the tooth and contains the nerve, blood vessels, and connective tissue. The tooth's nerve is in the "root" or "legs" of the tooth. The root canals travel from the tip of the tooth's root into the pulp chamber.

A tooth's nerve is not vitally important to a tooth's health and function after the tooth has emerged through the gums. Its only function is sensory -- to provide the sensation of heat or cold. The presence or absence of a nerve will not affect the day-to-day functioning of the tooth.

Why Does the Pulp Need to Be Removed?

When pulp is damaged, it breaks down, and bacteria begin to multiply within the pulp chamber. The bacteria and other dying pulp remnants can cause an infection or abscessed tooth. An abscess is a pus-filled pocket that forms at the end of a tooth’s root. In addition to an abscess, an infection in the root canal of a tooth can cause:

  1. Swelling that may spread to other areas of the face, neck, or head
  2. Bone loss around the tip of the root
  3. Drainage problems extending outward from the root. A hole can occur through the side of the tooth, with drainage into the gums or through the cheek into the skin.

What Damages a Tooth's Pulp in the First Place?

A tooth's pulp can become irritated, inflamed, and infected due to deep decay, repeated dental procedures on a tooth, large fillings, a crack or chip in the tooth, or trauma to the face.

What Are the Signs That Root Canal Therapy Is Needed?

Signs you may need root canal therapy include:

  1. Severe toothache pain upon chewing or application of pressure
  2. Prolonged sensitivity (pain) to hot or cold temperatures (after the heat or cold has been removed)
  3. Discoloration (darkening) of the tooth
  4. Swelling and tenderness in nearby gums
  5. A persistent or recurring pimple on the gums

Sometimes no symptoms are present.

The Root Canal Procedure

Root canal therapy requires one or more office visits and can be performed by a dentist or endodontist. An endodontist is a dentist who specializes in the causes, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases and injuries of the teeth's dental pulp. The choice of which type of dentist to use depends to

some degree on the difficulty of the root canal procedure needed in your particular tooth and the general dentist's comfort level in working on your tooth. Your dentist will discuss who might be best suited to perform the work in your particular case.


The first step in the procedure is to take an X-ray to see the shape of the root canals and determine if there are any signs of infection in the surrounding bone. Your dentist or endodontist will then use local anesthesia to numb the area near the tooth. Actually, anesthesia may not be necessary, since the nerve is dead, but most dentists still anesthetize the area to make the patient more relaxed and at ease.

Next, to keep the area dry and free of saliva during treatment, your dentist will place a rubber dam (a sheet of rubber) around the tooth.

An access hole will then be drilled into the tooth. The pulp, along with bacteria and related debris, is removed from the tooth. The cleaning-out process is accomplished using root canal files. A series of these files of increasing diameter are each subsequently placed into the access hole and worked down the full length of the tooth to scrape and scrub the sides of the root canals. Water or sodium hypochlorite is used periodically to flush away the debris.
