Dentistry is a branch of medical science that studies, diagnoses, prevents and treats oral abnormalities and diseases related to teeth, gums and mouth.
The history of dentistry in Iran dates back to more than 800 years ago. Since then, many advances have been made in the science of dentistry in Iran. It is a matter of pride that Iran Dental Services, if not the best, are among the highest ranks of dental services in the world, and Iran Dental Clinics have the most modern and up-to-date equipment in the world.
Iran’s highly skilled dentists cover a wide range of dental services, including cosmetic and therapeutic services.
It is also worth mentioning that cosmetic dentistry is very popular in Iran due to its professional services, especially the very reasonable cost of dental services, especially the competitive price of implants.
Dental implants are an artificial replacement for tooth roots. Just as the roots support natural teeth, dental implants are placed directly in the jawbone to hold the crown or denture in place.
Various materials, such as titanium, are used to make dental implants. Your cosmetic surgeon uses an internal screw called an abutment to hold the implants in place.
Before surgery, make sure the gums are healthy and the jawbone is strong.
It is essential to keep implants clean. In order to have implants for a long time, it is necessary to observe hygiene carefully and visit your doctor regularly.
It is worth mentioning that dental implants are very common in Tehran. In addition to the high quality of dental services in Iran provided by skilled Iranian physicians, competitive implant prices in Iran are among the important factors that make this practice popular in Iran.
Tooth crowns, also called cups, are simply mounted on a natural tooth and cover it.
Dental crowns have various functions, including the following:
Protecting weak teeth from fractures,
- Reconstruction of already broken teeth,
- Covering deformed or badly colored teeth,
- Cover the implant and put the dental bridge in place
Various materials including porcelain, ceramic, metal, and a combination of these materials are used to make dental crowns.
Tooth bridge (bridging)
Bridges are the best and most common option for covering gaps between fallen teeth. A missing tooth can cause imbalance and improper chewing, as well as Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ), as well as difficulty speaking.
Bridges and crowns are the best treatment options to improve the appearance and shape of the teeth, as well as to strengthen the damaged teeth.
Your cosmetic dentist will fix the bridge and crown on an existing tooth or implant.
Dentures are a removable replacement for missing teeth. Two types of dentures, including a complete set of dentures and half a set of dentures, are used in case of loss of all natural teeth or one or more teeth. Depending on your circumstances, you may need one of these two types of dentures.
After the teeth are extracted, the denture is mounted on the gums and jawbone.
Dentures have many benefits, including:
- Improve the appearance and design of the smile
- Helps to speak clearly, as well
- Eat and chew food properly.
Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that diagnoses, prevents, and corrects malformed teeth and jaws. Orthodontics also treats a special condition called malocclusion, in which the teeth are not properly positioned, resulting in improper chewing.
Orthodontics can be done to achieve the following:
- Reduce the distance between the teeth,
- Align the surface of the teeth,
- Straightening crooked teeth,
- Improved speaking,
- Improve gum and tooth health,
- Prevention of dental injuries, and
- Chewing correction.
Two types of orthodontics, fixed and removable, are used in different situations. It should be noted that monthly visits after orthodontics are necessary, and treatment may take months to years.
Sometimes it is necessary to extract a tooth or teeth for the following reasons:
- It is not possible to repair the tooth with fillings, crowns, or other treatments due to decay or excessive damage.
Preparing for orthodontics (if your teeth are too big for the size of your mouth)
- The presence of extra tooth (s) in the mouth, and
- In cases where the teeth did not fall out in time.
Tooth extraction can be divided into simple extraction, for visible teeth, and surgical extraction, for teeth such as wisdom teeth.
Tooth extraction is usually performed under local anesthesia.
Among the numerous benefits of dental fillings, the following can be mentioned:
- Repair of decayed or damaged teeth,
- Restore tooth shape and function, and
- Prevent further damage.
Various materials including gold, composite resin, porcelain, and amalgam are used to fill teeth. In choosing the most suitable material for your filling, your dentist will check your sensitivities and the amount of material needed.
Root canal treatment and scaling (denervation)
Healthy gums cover the teeth well. However, some factors, such as bad breath, swollen or red gums, bad taste, or loose teeth, are advanced signs of gum disease. If you have gum disease, your dentist will strongly advise you to have a gingival or root canal treatment for oral disease. Neurosurgery also keeps your teeth and gums healthy.
