• decay
  • Seals well to prevent leakage and recurrent tooth decay. (colgate.com)
  • Human beings recognized long ago the relationship between clean teeth and tooth decay and dental disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • Sometimes, a tooth is planned to be restored with an intracoronal restoration, but the decay or fracture is so extensive that a direct restoration, such as amalgam or composite, would compromise the structural integrity of the restored tooth or provide substandard opposition to occlusal (i.e., biting) forces. (wikipedia.org)
  • When an inlay is used, the tooth-to-restoration margin may be finished and polished to a very fine line of contact to minimize recurrent decay. (wikipedia.org)
  • When decay or fracture incorporate areas of a tooth that make amalgam or composite restorations inadequate, such as cuspal fracture or remaining tooth structure that undermines perimeter walls of a tooth, an onlay might be indicated. (wikipedia.org)
  • prosthetic
  • A crown, commonly referred to as a cap, is a prosthetic device placed over a broken down tooth to strengthen it and improve its appearance. (colgate.com)
  • genus
  • Pluridens ("Many Teeth") is an extinct genus of marine lizard belonging to the mosasaur family. (wikipedia.org)
  • A feature that separates Pluridens not only from the rest of the Halisaurinae, but from the rest of the Mosasauridae at large is its unusually high tooth count, dentaries assigned to the genus preserve almost twice the amount of teeth found in most other mosasaur genera. (wikipedia.org)
  • Chiayusaurus (meaning "Chia-yu-kuan lizard", after where it was found) was a genus of sauropod dinosaur known from teeth found in Asia. (wikipedia.org)
  • This spatulate tooth crown was 27 millimeters (1.1 inches) long, and was not unlike that of the younger genus Asiatosaurus. (wikipedia.org)
  • The first fossil was discovered on the Isle of Wight in England, and became the holotype specimen of a new species, O. latidens (Latin for "wide tooth"), in the genus Ornithodesmus in 1901. (wikipedia.org)
  • Cetiosaurus was, with the exception of the tooth genus Cardiodon, the first sauropod to be discovered and named as well as being the best known sauropod from England. (wikipedia.org)
  • bite
  • And unless the bite, also known as occlusion, is perfectly aligned, a patient who grinds his or her teeth during sleep could experience pain from pressing down on any high spots or areas where the tooth is higher than it should be. (colgate.com)
  • Gaps left by missing teeth can cause the remaining teeth to shift, which can result in a bad bite. (colgate.com)
  • prey
  • During jaw adduction, however, the speed of the anterior teeth could allow Pluridens to swiftly catch and penetrate small soft prey and a large number of teeth would ensure that it did not loose hold of the prey. (wikipedia.org)
  • dentists
  • Compared to many other dentist's practices in Berkshire, we have the modern and up to date dental treatments, working with some of the top dentists and hygienists in England to keep your mouth, teeth and jaws all healthy. (theperfectsmile.co.uk)
  • During your examination, one of our dentists will use state-of-the-art digital x-ray technology to examine your tooth and surrounding structures. (metrodentalcare.com)
  • Only experienced dentists and prosthodontists can administer bridge work and fit a tooth crown. (wadasdental.com)
  • Our knowledgeable dentists work closely with patients to help them achieve great results from tooth crown or bridge treatment. (wadasdental.com)
  • Dentists will also utilize a cantilever bridge when the patient only has teeth on one side of the affected area, and a Maryland bridge when the patient needs his or her front teeth replaced. (wadasdental.com)
  • The desire for clean teeth led individuals and later doctors and dentists to create teeth cleaning agents and tools. (wikipedia.org)
  • Dr. Sheffield joined many doctors and dentists in formulating his own tooth powder for use on his patients and later as another product for his dentifrice company, see Figure 5. (wikipedia.org)
  • amount of teeth
  • The unusually high amount of teeth present in the dentaries of both species of Pluridens initially made it difficult to immediately assign a classification on the subfamily level. (wikipedia.org)
  • snout
  • The front of the snout was low and blunt, and bore a semicircle of 48 teeth. (wikipedia.org)
  • The praemaxilla in the snout bears five teeth. (wikipedia.org)
  • It was characterized by large jaws with blade-like teeth, a large, blade-like horn on the snout and a pair of hornlets over the eyes. (wikipedia.org)
  • species
  • The nigerian specimen BMNH R9804 was reassigned to its own species by Longrich (2016) due to lacking many of the derived features that otherwise characterize P. walkeri, such as not being as elongated or having as large of a tooth battery. (wikipedia.org)
  • Bohlin described a larger tooth in the 1953 publication as "Species A. (aff. (wikipedia.org)
  • In 1997, Lee, Yang, and Park described a new species from South Korea based on a tooth (KPE 8001) which they regarded as being identical to "Species A. (aff. (wikipedia.org)
  • The authors rejected the suggestion that Bohlin's two teeth may have differed from being in different places in the jaw, and separated their species on the basis of details of the wear surfaces and placement of ridges. (wikipedia.org)
  • Denticles continuing over the tooth apex are today known from other species. (wikipedia.org)
  • Some species had larger, bladed teeth to attack large animals. (wikipedia.org)
