Dental implants are changing the way people live. With them, people are rediscovering the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh and enjoy life. They are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth which look, feel, and function like natural teeth. You can regain that smile with confidence, knowing that the teeth appear natural. Dental implants are tiny titanium posts that are placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. In addition, implants can help preserve facial structure and prevent the bone deterioration which occurs when teeth are missing.
Prosthodontics is the area of dentistry pertaining to the diagnosis, treatment planning, rehabilitation and maintenance of missing, broken down or deficient teeth and/or oral and maxillofacial tissues using biocompatible substitutes. Crowns or caps, dentures and bridges are typically the restorations used to achieve these results. All the dentists at Clínica Dental Tenerife Sur are well equipped to meet your prosthetic needs.
Root canal treatment is a routine dental procedure, which the dentists at Clínica Dental Tenerife Sur can provide for you. A root canal is needed when the blood and nerve supply of the tooth (known as the pulp) is infected through decay or injury. If the pulp becomes infected, the infection may spread through the root canal system of the tooth which will eventually lead to an abscess, and therefore it may need to be extracted. The aim of the treatment is to remove all infection from the root canal. The root is then cleaned and filled to prevent any further infection.
We offer tooth-colored fillings for a natural-looking alternative to the traditional silver/mercury fillings. Porcelain inlays and composite resins create fillings that are not only more attractive, but also add strength to weakened teeth. These restorations are also quite durable and long-lasting thanks to new bonding technologies.
Periodontal disease (gum disease) is a serious bacterial infection that destroys the fibers, connective tissue and supporting bone that hold your teeth in your mouth. Left untreated, these diseases can lead to tooth loss. There are numerous types and levels of periodontal disease requiring different treatment approaches. Most of the time, the treatment required to control periodontal disease involves much more than just teeth cleaning. The hygienists and dentists at Clínica Dental Tenerife Sur in Golf del Sur – Tenerife are skilled in the latest treatment options available to treat this disease. This method can also improve the esthetics of the patient’s gums and teeth.

Most people can manage dental treatment with little more than some slight anxiety. For some people however, going to the dentist is a lot more difficult. Whether it was a bad experience as a child or any other issue, the fear makes it very difficult for some people to take care of themselves. We know that people who avoid dental treatment due to excessive fear and anxiety don’t get the work they know they want and need. Dental phobias are serious business and we treat them as such. We make no judgments of individuals or their reasons for needing sedation dentistry. We understand that these dental fears are real and that dealing with people’s concerns is just as important as fixing their cavities. That is why we offer conscious sedation.
