Orthodontics

Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that specializes in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of dental and facial irregularities. Amongst the many other treatments under Orthodontics one of the most typical is the fabrication and insertion of an intra-oral device that protrudes the jaw and tongue forward to create increased airway space that can reduce snoring. Orthodontic treatment may also help prevent many serious potential problems such as tooth decay, gum disease and eventual tooth loss.

The health of teeth, gums and supporting bone, as well as harmonious jaw relationships, are key factors in determining the possibility of improving one's appearance through orthodontic treatment.

For Children

The posterior occlusion (bite) is established when the first 6-year permanent molars erupt. At that time, one can discover any abnormal shifting of the lower jaw. When incisors begin to erupt, problems such as crowding, adverse habits, overbites, openbites, and some facial asymmetries can be easily detected and corrected. A timely screening can lead to significant benefits postOrthodontic treatment.

Aesthetic Dentistry and Cosmetic Dentistry

Aesthetic dentistry is essentially where science and artistic principles combine to provide great dentistry outcomes for people. While it is about improving the way your teeth look, it's also about improving your oral health. It actually embraces all kinds of dental treatments and has one aim - to ensure you get the very best outcome in terms of functionality, aesthetics and of course oral health.

Cosmetic dentistry is the branch of restorative dentistry that strives to improve teeth and smile appearance to a level reflecting beauty, harmony and natural symmetry. It brings in the possibility of producing a smile that wouldn't have belonged there. It's the art of designing a tooth or smile to mimic nature and to produce restorations not noticed by the eye. Success in cosmetic dentistry is achieved not only by modifying the white aesthetics (the teeth), but sometimes also the pink aesthetics (the gums). Cosmetic dentistry also employs coordinated efforts between dental specialties in the reconstruction of a case. Often, bone grafting and gum grafting are prescribed in conjunction with implants to replace a missing tooth. Orthodontics or braces are often needed to move teeth to better positions for more predictable aesthetics and function before veneers, crowns or bridges are added to the mix. Cosmetic dentistry therefore requires artistic perception to successfully emulate nature.

Cosmetic dentistry strives to improve the appearance of teeth and smiles while Aesthetic dentistry represents the final subjective result: a smile that looks good. What looks good to one may not look good to another. However, what's certain is that aesthetic success is often attained if nature is reproduced.

Conservative Dentistry and Endodontics

This specialty essentially deals with conservation of teeth and preserving the natural dentition. The treatment modalities rendered include restorative procedures for carious teeth and other defects like fracture, erosion, abrasion and so on. Various esthetic treatments like diastema closure, veneers, smile design, tooth whitening, etc. are also rendered under Conservative Dentistry.

Endodontics deals with teeth having pulpal diseases. The treatment is used to save all the badly mutilated teeth, irrespective of the age of the patient bringing them back to normal function and esthetics. Some cases require advanced treatment procedures like complicated RCTs, Hemisection, Radisection, Apicectomy Splinting, Conservative bridges, Indirect esthetic restorations like porcelain/Composite inlays and onlays and veneers.

Endosonics, Laser, Composite furnace, Physiodispencer, various obturating systems like Thermafil, Guttaflow& advanced digital radiography like RVG are some of the cutting-edge equipments used for the treatment.

Root Canal

Teeth have a soft core called dental pulp. The pulp extends from the crown — the visible part of the tooth — to the tip of the tooth's root in the jawbone. The pulp contains nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue. When a tooth is cracked or has a deep cavity, bacteria can enter the pulp. Left untreated, bacteria and decaying material can cause a serious infection or a tooth abscess and eventual loss of the tooth.

Root canal is a treatment to save a badly damaged or infected tooth by repairing instead of removing it. The term "root canal" means cleaning of the canals inside a tooth's root. The treatment has a dubious reputation of being one of the most painful but with advances in dental technology and anesthetics, patients today have little if any pain. Also, dental implant has come up as the alternative to Root canal.
