Dental Implants are artificial devices used to replace missing teeth. Implants come in many different sizes and shapes and they are placed into the bone to act as support for a prosthetic crown. These are the most modern method of replacing missing teeth. They are basically substitutes for the natural tooth roots. They are made of titanium and are usually cylindrical in size.
Dental implants have given countless patients many amazing benefits including
- Natural tooth like feeling
- Natural tooth like feeling
- Improved appearance
- Improved comfort
- Improved speech
- Eat better, enjoy more foods, better nutrition
- Improved self-esteem
Dental implants are a great value for your investment. Implants look much better, and feel better, than traditional removable bridges, and offer the same force for biting as bridges that are fixed in place. Implants will last your lifetime.!!! You will be getting a product that you will be using 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 52 weeks of the year, probably for many, many years of your life.
Root canal treatment is the removal of the infected soft tissue within the tooth and its replacement by an artificial inert ‘filling’ material. This procedure basically saves the tooth and eliminates dental pain. You many need root canal for any of these reasons:
- Persistent toothache
- Decay of teeth or cavities which are deep
- Tooth becoming darker after an injury or trauma
- Swelling of gum near the tooth
- Tender gums or teeth
These can be filled with a tooth-coloured material called composite. The colour of the composite can be chosen so that it matches the colour of your teeth.
It's not uncommon for a tooth to be slightly longer or have a different shape than its neighbours. With a procedure called recontouring, your dentist can reshape the tooth so that it's a better match.
Small gaps can be closed by applying composite material between the teeth. For large gaps or other imperfections on the surfaces of the teeth, your dentist may recommend veneers. Veneers are among the most expensive cosmetic procedures. Made from ultra-thin shells of porcelain that come in every shade of white, veneers are permanently bonded to the fronts of the teeth, giving them an entirely new esthetic appearance.
If a tooth has been badly broken or is structurally weak, you may need a crown. Crowns used to be made of metal, but today they're often made of tooth-coloured porcelain materials.
The full conservative cosmetic dental procedures have greatly enhanced a dentist's ability to give their patients a better smile.
Tooth whitening is a procedure that lightens teeth and helps to remove stains and discoloration. Whitening is among the most popular cosmetic dental procedures because it can significantly improve the appearance of your teeth at much less cost and inconvenience than other techniques. Every day, a thin coating forms on your teeth and it picks up stains. Whitening is not a one-time solution. It will need to be repeated on a regular basis.
Bleaching living teeth has become enormously popular and successful. With bleaching, you can have whiter teeth in just one sitting.
Veneers are a thin layer of porcelain, the same material used to make tooth-coloured crowns or caps, which once cemented to the tooth, act and appear like normal, natural tooth structure. These restorations need little tooth structure removal for attachment and are extremely pleasing aesthetically.
Gum contouring is another conservative procedure which can make a significant contribution to the enhancement of a smile. The gum line of front teeth may not always grow in at the right place on the teeth. Sometimes the erratic eruption of teeth can cause the gum line to end up covering the top third of the teeth resulting in a gummy smile and small teeth. This corrective procedure is the simplest and most dramatic cosmetic procedure in the armamentarium of the cosmetic dentist.
A jewel is fixed on the tooth surface. The jewel does not damage tooth tissues and has no side effects except for the increased charm of your smile! Call it an oral fashion statement to stand out among ordinary mortals or simply an effort to blend in with the bold and the beautiful. If somebody thinks he or she was better off without tooth jewellery, it can be easily removed without any side effects on the dental tooth structure as the procedure is non-invasive. What's more, tooth jewellery can be fixed again at a later stage.
A Dental Crown is a "cap" placed on a damaged tooth to restore its functionality and its appearance.
We recommend dental crown to:
- Protect a weak tooth.
- To restore an already broken tooth.
- To cover and support a tooth which has large cavity.
- To hold a dental bridge in place.
- To cover a discolored or crooked tooth.
- To cover a dental implant.
- For cosmetic purposes.
Dental Bridges are used to replace missing tooth and are an excellent alternative to Dentures and Dental Implants. They provide more stability and are less invasive. We use this procedure:
- To let you smile confidently.
- Let you speak and chew properly.
- Maintain the shape of your face.
- Maintain the position of the existing teeth.
Dentures, also known as false teeth are prosthetic device used in place of missing teeth. We provide dentures that are of high quality and at the same time we are sure that we will be able to provide you with dentures that are a perfect fit.
For us an orthodontics treatment means providing our patients with a "good bite". A good bite makes it easier for you to bite, chew and speak. This can enhance your dental health and your overall health, and may help you smile with confidence thus improving your self-esteem. Today's orthodontics involves repositioning of the teeth and underlying roots, providing better support for the crown of the tooth. Our Orthodontic treatment combines together benefits of greater esthetic appeal, increased comfort and reduced treatment time. Dental braces is a type of orthodontic treatment used in our clinic to correct teeth that are crowded, crooked, protruding or have irregular spacing. Braces are used to shift teeth to their ideal position and thus giving both children and adults their perfect smile. We offer different kinds of braces to our patients:
Orthognathic surgery is surgery performed on the bones of the jaws to change their positions. Orthognathic surgery is corrective facial surgery where deformities of the jaw exist. It may be indicated for functional, cosmetic, or health reasons. It is surgery commonly done on the jaws in conjunction with orthodontic treatment, which straightens the teeth.
Facial trauma, also known as maxillofacial trauma, is any injury to the face or jaw bone. Facial trauma may present with skin lacerations, obstruction to the nasal cavity or sinuses, damage to the orbital sockets, fracture to the jawbone and missing teeth.
Treatment for facial trauma often involves airway control, bleeding control, reduction of swelling, prevention of infection, and repair of bone fractures, repair of lacerations or soft tissue injury, and reconstruction. The most common causes of facial trauma are sports, accidents, penetrating injuries, and violence.
'In order to successfully place implants you need sufficient bone. In certain situations dentist need to perform specific procedures in order to create bone volume. One such procedure is sinus lift.
Bone grafting is a surgical procedure that places new bone or a replacement material into spaces between or around broken bone (fractures) or in holes in bone (defects) to aid in healing. Bone grafts are used for facial or cranial reconstruction.
The Wisdom tooth, ( also called Third Molar ) usually do not push through the gums until the late teens or twenties. Wisdom teeth are usually the last teeth to come through the gums.
In the majority of cases, there will not be enough room in the jaw for a wisdom tooth or all wisdom teeth to fully emerge. This can lead to several complications. If the exit of the wisdom teeth is stalled at the halfway point (soft impaction), this can make brushing and flossing the wisdom teeth extremely difficult. Food and bacteria builds up between the wisdom teeth and its neighbouring molars, and decay and gum infection are very likely to occur. Crowded wisdom teeth in the upper jaw have a tendency to lean sideways and grate against the cheek. These wisdom teeth usually cause ulceration and chewing problems. A further problem is wisdom teeth crowding- the pressure from wisdom teeth may also force the other teeth closer together, and interfere with the bite. Gum disease and cyst formations are also complications of impacted wisdom teeth. Very rarely, tumours may also form from the wisdom teeth. Pressure from the wisdom teeth can also cause toothache on the tooth next to it. Ulceration can also be caused by wisdom teeth. Upper wisdom teeth may push sideways out of the gum and cause ulcers inside of the cheek.
Dentists use radiographs (X-Rays) to find hidden dental structures, malignant or benign masses, bone loss, and cavities.
