May 13, 2012, 11:08:11 PM by Son of King
From the desk of Dr. Wale Adeleke. Ikeja, Lagos. Nigeria. 08033181698.
Dear Friend,
Would you agree that it’s fair to say that everyone desires a beautiful smile?
Why does it seem like only a few people were lucky enough to have struck the “genetic lottery” and were born with a gorgeous set of perfectly straight pearly whites?
I have a little secret for you...That’s not how it usually happens!
How about you? Are you someone who has crowded teeth, a tooth discoloration, uneven teeth, a “gummy” smile, or maybe even crooked teeth? Are you someone who loves your teeth but wants to improve on what nature gave you, in a quick, easy, and safe way?
If you are someone who wants to improve your smile, you've come to the right place!
My name is Dr. Wale Adeleke, and I specialize in beautifying smiles for people just like you!
Chances are you’d be out of luck if you were born 100 years ago!
But the good news is that today, there are countless cosmetic procedures available (and often relatively inexpensive procedures at that!) that you can choose from to help give your smile that extra little bit of, what I like to call, “wattage!”
In this report, I’m going to tell you about a few of the most popular cosmetic procedures available and what you can expect from each one…
… So that by the time you’re sitting in the dentist’s chair, you’ll be armed with knowledge to make the best decision for YOU!

This is a model of a single dental implant

As you can see, the dental implant itself goes down into the bone, and the part that extends above the bone is what we place the crown on.
The use of dental implants is now thestandard of care for missing teeth, denture replacement, and cosmetic dental care. They can be used for single tooth replacements, or multiple teeth replacements. In either case, the result is a dramatic improvement in your chewing ability, oral health, and smile.[/font]
xx Frequently Asked Questions about Denture
May 01, 2012, 05:48:54 PM by Isaac Adeniran


Q. What is an immediate denture?

A. An immediate dentures is a full prosthesis that is placed right after (same day) the teeth are extracted.

Q. What is a denture reline?

A. A denture reline is the process of adding acrylic to the pink base material of the denture to fill in where it no longer fits due to bone resorption.

Q. How long do dentures last?

A. Actually, there is no real "lifetime" to a denture. Some can last twenty or thirty years, or longer, if made and maintained correctly.

Q. How much do dentures cost?

A. It varies depending on whether the denture is full or partial, and whether the denture is implant retained or resting on natural soft tissue. Our base fee for a full or partial denture is $2500, plus lab costs which usually run about $500 per case.

If the case is implant supported, each implant will cost $4000 overall, including the fees to the periodontist who places the implant(s), and all the related costs from the restorative end.

Q. How do I know if I am a candidate for an immediate, tissue-supported, removable, or implant-supported denture?

A. The answer to this question is best resolved through a comprehensive exam and treatment plan. In our office, we offer an initial exam at no cost to the patient.

If the patient is interested in taking the next step, we usually suggest study models and a full case work-up, which normally takes about a week, and the costs very moderate.

Q. What about sore spots? I have heard that dentures can be uncomfortable.

A. It's true - some dentures can cause sore spots from time to time. If this occurs, either a minor adjustment or a reline will usually resolve the matter.

Q. What about breakage. Do dentures ever break?

A. Yes, dentures can sometimes crack or break. When they are made correctly, this is very rare.

Q. Do dentures look good? And can I chew anything I like?

A. Actually, full or partial dentures can be made to look very lifelike. And, with the exception of certain foods, denture wearers can usually eat a fairly normal diet.

As you can see, dentures come in many shapes and sizes.
Some examples include full dentures, partial dentures, over dentures, immediate dentures, precision partial dentures, and implant retained dentures.
These dentures can be created to chew against natural teeth, fixed bridges, implant supported crowns or bridges, or almost any other type of dental prosthesis.
Here is an example of a lower removable partial denture (RPD).
The missing teeth are replaced by plastic or porcelain teeth supported by a metal framework.
This type of prosthesis has the advantage of economy (many teeth can be provided for a relatively lower cost than fixed bridges or implants). And, it is easy to clean and maintain.
The disadvantages of the RPD are that it doesn't stimulate the bone the way natural teeth or implants would, so the amount of bone below the plate will decrease over time. And, the RPD can cause an esthetic problem, especially on the upper, if the clasps that hold it in are visible toward the front of the mouth.
To solve this problem, we sometimes make a denture that is retained by implants submerged in the bone.

The denture is still removable, but there are no clasps because the RPD is retained by the implants.[/font]
xx Dental Bonding

[font=]Dental bonding refers to the use of resins or porcelain veneers to repair or enhance missing tooth structure. This form of cosmetic dentistry is frequently used to close spaces between front teeth, or to repair broken edges after an accident.[/font]

Guaranteed against breakage
The secret to this process lies in a new material called FeldspathicPorcelain.
This type of porcelain is so strong that it can be made to a thinness of 1/3 mm (about the thickness of a contact lens). Conventional porcelain must usually be at least 1 full mm thick. And yet the Feldspathic porcelain is strong enough that the manufacturers give a five year warrantee against breakage.
How can they offer such a guarantee? The answer is that in the 16 years of research that has been done on this product, they have had no failures. In fact, if anything cracks, it is not the veneer but the tooth itself. The bond is that strong!
Key Benefits
Cerinate veneers can dramatically improve your smile.
Here are some of the key benefits:
  • They can be made in just two visits.
  • There is generally no tooth reduction necessary.
  • They don't chip, crack or discolor with age.
  • There is no need for temporization.
  • Anesthetic is not needed (no shots!).
  • They have a 16 year proven track record.
  • The impressions are quick and easy to make.
  • The bonding resin actually strengthens the tooth.
  • The esthetic results are immediate - like instant orthodontics.
  • And, patients love them!!
clip Dental Bridges
May 01, 2012, 05:19:53 PM by Isaac Adeniran
 The most common bridge these days is made out of porcelain and spans three teeth.

Here is an example of an anterior (front) three unit porcelain bridge:
As you can see, the bridge is tooth colored and is designed to replace three front teeth on the upper arch. If this bridge were on the bottom, it would look about the same, except that the chewing edges would be facing up, and the part that holds onto to the roots would be at the bottom.

Here is an example of another upper dental bridge, but this time involving all six anterior teeth. Here, the teeth may be made as one solid piece, or may be made as two separate bridges, spanning a total of six teeth. Again, this bridge is an example of an upper dental bridge. A lower would be similar, but facing up.
Finally, there are bridges that can span a total arch. In these cases, the bridge is sometimes made of zirconium, and is designed to be stronger than a normal porcelain bridge This is an example of a fourteen-unit upper porcelain dental bridge.

With these stronger materials, we can make a single bridge to cover an entire arch.

While this type of reconstruction is not that common, it is possible. In our office, we have made many full arch bridges.

Other types of dental bridges:

1. Full gold bridges. While these are not that common anymore, it is possible to cast and cement solid gold bridges.

2. Posterior porcelain-fused-to-gold bridges. These are more common, and have the added advantage of having a metal substructure for rigidity and marginal fit.

3. Removable bridges. These are are quite uncommon, but can be made when the fixed bridge is not recommended.

4. Maryland bridges. This type of bridge is a special method of restoration where the teeth on either side of the missing one are not prepared.

xx Dental Crowns
May 01, 2012, 05:15:26 PM by Isaac Adeniran
Dental crowns come in many different types and sizes. The two most common varieties are gold and porcelain.
Gold crowns are stronger but not as esthetic as porcelain. They are usually placed in posterior areas, where the strength is important, but where there is less concern for cosmetics.

Porcelain Crowns are just as strong as gold crowns, but are more esthetic. Usually, but not always, they are made with a gold sub-structure, that gives the crown its strength and accurate fit. This is why they are often referred to as Porcelain Fused to Metal crowns or "PFMs"  for short.
Recent advances in porcelain technology has made a third type of crown available. This new crown is made exclusively of porcelain, often reinforced with new materials to make is stronger.

The reason for this new form of crown is to provide the esthetics of the PFM, the strength of the gold crown, but to eliminate the metal.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How much do crowns usually cost?

A. Gold and porcelain crowns are all the same cost in most dental offices. The range for fees can be substantial, depending upon the quality of the lab used, and the type of metal in the crown. Usually, a full crown will cost between N50k and N75k.

Q. How long do they last?

A. While it is impossible to "guarantee' the life of a crown, most crowns will last a lifetime. Insurance companies will re-pay on a crown after five years. And, in clinical practice, the durability of many crowns seems to be 20 years plus.

Q. How many crowns have you placed?

A. Our office has placed over 500 crowns successfully. We have had fewer than 1% come off or need replacement over 27 years.

Q. How much does insurance usually pay on a full crown?

A. Most insurance companies will pay approximately 50% of the cost of a crown, based on their schedule of fees, which varies with each carrier.

Q. How many visits does it take to make a new crown?

A. Most crowns involve two visits. The first one is for the crown preparation (which usually takes an hour). The second visit only takes a half-hour, and will usually be scheduled two weeks after the preparation appointment.

Q. What protects my tooth while the real crown is being made?

A. During the two weeks while the real crown is being made in the dental laboratory, you will have a temporary crown on the tooth, to protect it and keep it from drifting out of position.

xx Procedures involved in cosmetic dentistry include:
May 01, 2012, 05:08:52 PM by Isaac Adeniran

Generally, crowns are permanent, although patient diet, home care, and dental maintenance can have an effect on their longevity.

Bridges are multiple teeth connected together to form one chewing unit. They may be from three to more teeth in size. Typically, they are cemented in place and are generally permanent.

Veneers are laminated porcelain facings that are made in a dental lab and cemented over the front of your natural teeth. This procedure is especially attractive to people who have discolored teeth, but don't want to have their teeth prepared for conventional crowning.

Bonding refers to facings, like the veneers above, only using plastic resin, rather than porcelain. And, they are made right on the spot, without a dental lab involved.

The advantage of bonding is that there is usually no anesthetic or tooth preparation involved. The disadvantage is that, because they are resins, they do not last as long as veneers, and they can discolor with age.

Implants are titanium screws placed in your jawbone, usually by a periodontist, which provide a false root to place a new crown or bridge on. They replace broken or extracted teeth and are very effective in restoring natural looks and function.

Dentures, both partial and full, are an affordable alternative to implants. The benefits are ease of production and relative less expense. The disadvantages include less chewing strength and an unnatural feel and taste.
