Inlays and Onlays

 

Inlays and onlays are often referred to as partial crowns. They use the existing tooth as a base and fit the inlay or onlay onto the tooth. This is done to strengthen the tooth, restore its shape, and prevent further damage. An inlay is done when there is no damage to the cusps of the tooth and the inlay can be placed right on the tooth. An inlay is used when the damage is a little more extensive.

The decayed area of the tooth is first removed during the procedure. A mold of the tooth is then taken and sent to a dental lab. They create a restoration made from porcelain, gold, or a composite resin. The restoration takes about 2-3 weeks to make, so a temporary inlay or onlay will be placed on the tooth for that time. During your next visit the inlay or onlay will be placed into your mouth and set with cement. Your tooth will look natural and you or anyone else won't be able to tell the difference.

SDB- related health disorders, such as:

  • ·         ADD/ADHD
  • ·         Lower IQ
  • ·         Chronic Allergies
  • ·         Aggressive Behavior
  • ·         Mouth Breathing

The HealthyStart® System is an oral appliance therapy that promotes natural growth and development, which addresses the root causes of SDB.  Research has shown that SDB-induced oxygen deprivation is a major contributing factor to the childhood health disorders shown above.

The HealthyStart® System has been specifically designed to promote the proper growth and development of the jaw and airway to optimize airflow and promote proper nasal breathing while straightening your child’s teeth.  As these areas develop many of the symptoms of Sleep Disordered Breathing disappear.  When kids can breathe properly, they can begin to learn, grow, and blossom into their true genetic potential … just as nature intended.

 

 

Many kids with the above health disorders are being “treated” with powerful drugs without evaluating a possible root cause.  Our office can evaluate your child and indicate if there is a breathing and sleeping issue.  Please take the sleep and speech questionnaire to make an initial evaluation of your child.  

Healthy Start not only addresses the root cause of Sleep Disorder Breathing it simultaneously straightens your child’s teeth without braces. Best of all, when treatment begins early, the perfect smiles that the HealthyStart® Appliance System creates are less likely to relapse!

 HealthyStart® creates healthier, happier kids who can breathe.  Rarely has there ever been a single appliance or system with the power to impact your child’s health in so many positive ways. As a parent, you owe it to your child to give them every chance to succeed. Call today for more information on how to help children achieve their full potential.
