Prosthodontics (Crown and Bridge)
Restorative Dentistry or Crown and bridge treatment means the restoration of natural teeth that have been damaged, decayed or lost. After examining the teeth and evaluation treatment options are given. A crown may be created to restore an individual damaged tooth back to its original form and function, while a bridge may be utilized to replace one or more teeth. These restorations are cemented onto the teeth and are referred to as "fixed" dentistry instead of a restoration of missing teeth with a removable appliance or partial denture.
Since missing teeth cause the face to collapse, making you look older, dental implants are a good choice to compensate for tooth loss. Dental Implants are artificial tooth root replacements that are used as a part of prosthetic (artificial replacement) dentistry. Often the result is not only an enhanced smile, but also a more youthful appearance.
The dental needs of the elderly are ever changing. The management of older patients needs a comprehensive understanding of the medical and dental aspects of aging and of factors like ambulation and sensory function. Many barriers are there when providing older patients with dental care, including severe dental complexity, multiple medical conditions, diminished functional status and loss of independence.
Geriatric dentistry or gerodontics is the delivery of dental care to older adults involving the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of problems associated with normal aging and age-related diseases as part of an interdisciplinary team with other health care professionals.
A branch of dentistry which deals with the development and positional anomalies of the teeth and the jaws as they affect oral health and the physical, esthetic and mental well being of the person. It is a special branch of dentistry which deals with the alignment of the teeth.
It involves the treatment of malocclusions (improper bites), which may be a result of tooth irregularity, disproportionate jaw relationships, or both. Orthodontic treatment can be carried out for purely aesthetic reasons with regards to improving the general appearance of patients' teeth.
Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Deals with a wide variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth and facial regions ranging from cosmetic facial surgery to corrective jaw surgery! Our doctors are uniquely qualified to manage and treat Facial Trauma. The trauma injuries we treat are Intra oral lacerations, Avulsed (knocked out) teeth, Fractured facial bones (cheek, nose or eye socket) & Fractured jaws.
Fractures of the upper and/or lower jaw are treated and stabilized by the surgical placement of small plates and screws at the involved site. More importantly, the patient's facial appearance will be minimally affected.
Injuries to the teeth and surrounding dental structures are common and may need specialised dental treatment. The fractures in the supporting bone and replanting teeth that have been displaced or knocked out are treated by one of a number of forms of splinting (stabilizing by wiring or bonding teeth together).
Endodontics (Root Canal Treatment)
It is possible to save your tooth & smile! Root canal treatment is done for retrieve infected teeth permanently. Root canal treatment is a dental procedure where the infected or damaged pulp of a tooth is removed and the inside areas are filled and sealed. Little or no discomfort is there and the procedure is performed in either single visit or multi visits. Root canal treatment saves the teeth that would otherwise need to be extracted. The most common cause of pulp infection is a cracked tooth or a deep cavity.
They let in bacteria to the pulp and cause infection inside the tooth. If not treated, pus builds up at the root tip in the jawbone forming a “pus-pocket” called an abscess, which can cause damage to the bone around the teeth. No preparation is needed for root canal treatment. Once the tooth is opened to drain, the dentist may prescribe an antibiotic. With the infection under control, local anaesthetic is more effective, so that the root canal treatment may be performed without discomfort.
Children’s teeth are prone to changes often. Exfoliating and erupting teeth, thumb -sucking habits and accident prone nature of children cause many dental problems which need to be treated early.
It is of prime importance that your child sees a dentist by age one to establish a long-term dental hygiene and professional dental cleaning plan. Fixing cavities in children’s teeth is often done differently than in permanent teeth and must take into account subsequent tooth loss and different size and shape of the teeth. Dental sealants are used to protect teeth from decay and are appropriate as soon as a tooth erupts.
This dental specialty refers to gum disease treatment. The gums get infected and tend to bleed when scaling and polishing are not done regularly. The infection causes a bad odour in the mouth, leading to bad breath. The bleeding gums and bad mouth smell are easily treatable as the cause of the problem is bacteria. Once we remove the bacteria the problem settles down. Scaling is done and if needed Gum curettage is done. In advanced cases, gum surgery may also be needed.
