Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic Dentistry is a field in dentistry, in which a Cosmetic Dentistry will implement a combination of several treatment procedures to give a perfect smile. We also do procedures like teeth in hour.

Teeth Whitening (Dental Bleaching)

Whitening of the teeth is performed for patients who want a brighter smile. Tooth whitening can be done to reduce discoloration and staining, or simply to provide the patient with whiter, brighter teeth for a beautiful smile.

Discoloration of a Tooth

Tooth enamel discoloration can be caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth. Some of the more common causes of tooth discoloration are medications, coffee, tea or cigarettes. People who drink significant amounts of cola soft drinks can experience similar staining. Damage to the root may also contribute to discoloration.

Dental Implants

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root used in dentistry to support restorations that resemble a tooth or group of teeth.

Virtually all dental implants placed today are root-form endosseous implants. In other words, virtually all dental implants placed in the 21st century appear similar to an actual tooth root (and thus possess a "root-form") and are placed within the bone. Implants are not only used to replace one tooth, but rather people missing most, if not all, of their teeth benefit greatly as well. Implants are increasingly being used to replace certain types of bridges and removable partial dentures.

Bonding

Dental bonding , also called as composite or tooth bonding, is an excellent procedure to fix cosmetic and structural imperfections in the teeth. Dental bonding can repair cracked, chipped, and discolored teeth as well as replace silver amalgam fillings in teeth. Cosmetic bonding can also repair misaligned teeth, providing a straighter, more uniform smile. We customize smile design for every patient. These kind of treatments come under esthetic dentistry.

Reshaping < contouring

Tooth reshaping, or contouring, is one of few instant treatments now available in cosmetic dentistry. Dental reshaping and contouring is a procedure to correct crooked teeth, chipped teeth, cracked teeth or even overlapping teeth in just one session.

Cosmetic Gum Surgery

The "Gummy Smile" - This is a problem where your teeth appear to be too short. Gum sculpting is often the solution. To solve this, a dentist uses a laser to remove the excess tissue of your "gummy" smile, which then exposes more of your tooth.

Restorative Dentistry - Crown and Bridge

Bridges

Dental bridges can be supported by either natural teeth or implants. When supported by natural teeth, it is made up of two crowns, one over the teeth on either side of the gap, and a false tooth (or several false teeth) in between. The two anchoring teeth are called abutment teeth and the false tooth is called a pontic. It can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials.

Types of Dental Bridges

  •  Traditional Bridges consist of a false tooth in between two real teeth. They are usually made of metal covered in porcelain, but can also be made of gold.
  •  Cantilever bridges are utilized when there is only one tooth next to the missing tooth.
  •  Maryland Bridges are constructed of plastic teeth with metal supports like metal wings on either side, which stabilize it. The wings are bonded to adjacent teeth.

How is a Bridge Placed?

Once our dentist's determines that you would benefit from having a bridge, your first appointment is scheduled. In this first appointment, we prepare the opposing teeth by recontouring them so that crowns will fit over them. Impressions are then taken of the area, which are sent to the dental lab. We will secure a temporary bridge to protect the teeth, until your permanent bridge is ready to be placed.

In your second appointment, we will place your permanent bridge, checking the fit and adjusting it accordingly. On some occasions, he or she will first cement the permanent bridge with temporary cement. Then, when both you and our dentist's are satisfied that it fits properly, we will cement it permanently.

How Long Do Bridges Last?

Usually a dental bridge will last between five and seven years, or longer with proper dental hygiene, even longer than ten years.

Is Eating With a Dental Bridge Difficult?

After your permanent dental bridge is placed, eating will become much easier. You may have to cut your food into smaller pieces for a short period of time. After you adjust to having a bridge, you will experience the full benefits of having more teeth.

Will the Dental Bridge Change How I Speak?

Speaking is rarely affected when a dental bridge is placed. You may feel a bit awkward at first, but after this transition period you should hardly notice that it is there.

How Do I Care for My Bridge?

Oral homecare is very important in maintaining the health of your dental bridge. Your dentist or dental hygienist will instruct you in how to floss underneath it and brush and floss around it. This hygiene foundation will facilitate the longevity of your dental crown.

  •  Brush your teeth three times a day with an electric toothbrush.
  •  Floss daily and never forget to thread floss underneath the dental bridge.
  •  If any large debris has lodged itself there, use a water pik to loosen it.
  •  Use an antibacterial mouthwash once a day.
Dental Implants Treatments

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that a periodontist places into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants are an ideal option for people in good general oral health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason.

While high-tech in nature, dental implants are actually more tooth-saving than traditional bridgework, since implants do not rely on neighboring teeth for support.

Dental implants are so natural-looking and feeling, you may forget you ever lost a tooth.You know that your confidence about your teeth affects how you feel about yourself, both personally and professionally. Perhaps you hide your smile because of spaces from missing teeth. Maybe your dentures don't feel secure. Perhaps you have difficulty chewing. If you are missing one or more teeth and would like to smile, speak and eat again with comfort and confidence, there is good news! Dental implants are teeth that can look and feel just like your own! Under proper conditions, such as placement by a periodontist and diligent patient maintenance, implants can last a lifetime. Long-term studies continue to show improving success rates for implants.

What Dental Implants Can Do?

  •  Replace one or more teeth without affecting bordering teeth.
  •  Support a bridge and eliminate the need for a removable partial denture.
  •  Provide support for a denture, making it more secure and comfordiv.

Types of Implants in Use Today

  •  Endosteal (in the bone): This is the most commonly used type of implant. The various types include screws, cylinders or blades surgically placed into the jawbone. Each implant holds one or more prosthetic teeth. This type of implant is generally used as an alternative for patients with bridges or removable dentures.
  •  Subperiosteal (on the bone): These are placed on top of the jaw with the metal framework's posts protruding through the gum to hold the prosthesis. These types of implants are used for patients who are unable to wear conventional dentures and who have minimal bone height.

Advantages of Dental Implants Over Dentures or a Bridge

Every way you look at it, dental implants are a better solution to the problem of missing teeth.

    What Dental Implants Can Do?

    •  Esthetic Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth! Since dental implants integrate into the structure of your bone, they prevent the bone loss and gum recession that often accompany bridgework and dentures. No one will ever know that you have a replacement tooth.
    •  Tooth-saving Dental implants don't sacrifice the quality of your adjacent teeth like a bridge does because neighboring teeth are not altered to support the implant. More of your own teeth are left untouched, a significant long-term benefit to your oral health!
    •  Confidence Dental implants will allow you to once again speak and eat with comfort and confidence! They are secure and offer freedom from the irksome clicks and wobbles of dentures. They'll allow you to say goodbye to worries about misplaced dentures and messy pastes and glues.
    •  Reliable The success rate of dental implants is highly predictable. They are considered an excellent option for tooth replacement.

    Are You a Candidate for Dental Implants?

    The ideal candidate for a dental implant is in good general and oral health. Adequate bone in your jaw is needed to support the implant, and the best candidates have healthy gum tissues that are free of periodontal disease.

    Dental implants are intimately connected with the gum tissues and underlying bone in the mouth. Since periodontists are the dental experts who specialize in precisely these areas, they are ideal members of your dental implant team. Not only do periodontists have experience working with other dental professionals, they also have the special knowledge, training and facilities that you need to have teeth that look and feel just like your own. Your dentist and periodontist will work together to make your dreams come true.

    What Is Treatment Like?

    This procedure is a team effort between you, your dentist and your periodontist. Your periodontist and dentist will consult with you to determine where and how your implant should be placed. Depending on your specific condition and the type of implant chosen, your periodontist will create a treatment plan tailored to meet your needs. Click for more information about the treatment options described below.

    •  Replacing a Single Tooth If you are missing a single tooth, one implant and a crown can replace it. A dental implant replaces both the lost natural tooth and its root.
    •  Replacing Several Teeth If you are missing several teeth, implant-supported bridges can replace them. Dental implants will replace both your lost natural teeth and some of the roots.
    •  Replacing All of Your Teeth If you are missing all of your teeth, an implant-supported full bridge or full denture can replace them. Dental implants will replace both your lost natural teeth and some of the roots.
    •  Sinus Augmentation A key to implant success is the quantity and quality of the bone where the implant is to be placed. The upper back jaw has traditionally been one of the most difficult areas to successfully place dental implants due to insufficient bone quantity and quality and the close proximity to the sinus. Sinus augmentation can help correct this problem by raising the sinus floor and developing bone for the placement of dental implants.
    •  Ridge Modification Deformities in the upper or lower jaw can leave you with inadequate bone in which to place dental implants. To correct the problem, the gum is lifted away from the ridge to expose the bony defect. The defect is then filled with bone or bone substitute to build up the ridge. Ridge modification has been shown to greatly improve appearance and increase your chances for successful implants that can last for years to come.
    Endodontic Root Canal

    A root canal is a capillary, which runs from the base of the root of the tooth to the middle of the crown (the visible part of the tooth). The root canal carries the pulp (a network of blood and nerve cells), which brings the tooth to life.The nerve of the tooth gets damaged due to many reasons. One of the main causes is cavity in the tooth that grows deeper and touches the nerve. Since the cavity is filled with bacteria, the root canal gets inflamed and causes pain. Other reasons that may damage the teeth are accidental cracks or infection from gums reaching to the base of roots. In such cases, root canal treatments can easily stabilize the position.

    Root Canal Treatment is one name that gives many patients shivers when told about it. However, in reality, it is not that bad. Infact, it is an instant pain reliever and the best treatment to retain the original teeth. A Root canal treated tooth serves its purpose and function just as a healthy tooth.

    Orthodontics Fixed

    Orthodontics, the branch of dentistry concerned with the growth of the teeth, jaws and face, is in high demand. Orthodontic treatment is about making the best of your teeth; it's about improving the harmony of your mouth and jaws. Once you can bite together correctly, you can eat more comfortably and care for your teeth and gums more easily. And your smile will benefit immensely!

    The Starting Point

    Most courses of orthodontic treatment begin with a referral from a general dentist to a specialist. Depending on what treatment is needed, most patients are seen by a specialist in a local practice or by a consultant in hospital. Some patients are treated by dentists with extra training and experience to treat the milder cases.

    These are some of the most common reasons for a referral:

    •   Protruding upper front teeth - one of the most common dental problems
    •   Crowding - a narrow jaw may mean there is not enough room for your teeth, resulting in crowding. Conversely, some patients have significant gaps between their teeth.
    •   Asymmetry - particularly when the centre lines of the upper and lower front teeth do not match, perhaps because the teeth have drifted or the position of the jaw has shifted.
    •  A deep bite - when your upper teeth cover the lower teeth too much
    •   A reverse bite - when your upper teeth bite inside the lower teeth
    •   An open bite - when your front teeth remain apart when your back teeth meet; the tongue is often still visible between the upper and lower front teeth.
    •   Impacted teeth - in some patients, secondary teeth come through in the wrong position or do not erupt at all. Orthodontic treatment can help bring these teeth into the correct position.

    Getting Treatment

    Every patient needs tailor-made treatment, planned by the orthodontist and agreed with you, the patient. In order to decide what treatment is required for you, your orthodontist will need to carry out a full assessment of your teeth which is likely to include x-rays, impressions (moulds of the teeth) and photographs. Treatment can take more than two years so it is important you are happy from the outset with what is recommended. Braces are almost always needed. Those which are used most often are:

    A Fixed Brace - This is the most common type of brace today, often known as "train tracks". Brackets are glued onto the teeth and linked by wires. Small elastic hoops are often used to hold the wire in position. The wires exert gentle pressure to move the teeth into a new position. The brackets can be metal, ceramic or even gold and the elastic loops come in many colours.

    A Removable Brace - This is sometimes used for correcting a simple problem, such as moving a single tooth or expanding the dental arch. It has a plastic baseplate with wires and springs attached. Removable braces need to be worn all the time except for cleaning or sport.

    Functional Appliances - These are used to harness the growth of the jaws and improve way the upper and lower teeth meet. There are several designs all of which fit on to both the upper and lower teeth and hold the lower jaw forward. They are mostly removable but should be worn as near to full-time as possible.

    Retainers - At the end of treatment, all patients should wear retainers to hold their teeth in the new position. These can be removable or fixed and are an important part of treatment.

    Pediatric Dentistry - Children Dentistry

    As toddlers advance into childhood, many parents need guidance to help their children develop good oral hygiene habits and get the nutrition they need. Oftentimes, parents also have questions about tooth development, sealants and fluoride, when to schedule dental visits, and when to consider braces. Our expert family and cosmetic dentists, address the answers to common questions like these below.

    When should I expect my child's teeth to come in?

    Baby teeth can come in as early as four months, with all 20 of the baby teeth appearing by age three. The order and timing of each tooth varies by individual. Permanent teeth begin appearing near age six and generally continue to come in until age 21.

    How should I care for my toddler's baby teeth?

    When your child's teeth begin to appear, you can begin to gently brush them using a simple back and forth motion. In addition, you should avoid baby tooth decay by not putting your child to bed with a bottle of milk or juice. The prolonged exposure to the sugar can cause decay early on.

    When should I schedule my child's first dental visit?

    According to the American Dental Association, the first visit should take place around age one. This is so the dentist can examine your child's dental health early on and help you identify if your child is at risk for baby tooth decay.

    What foods should my children eat to help them develop healthy teeth?

    Snacks with high sugar content, or candy that is digested in the mouth for large periods of time (i.e. suckers) can lead to tooth decay. You should make sure your children are eating nutritious snacks instead, such as vegetables, fruits, and low-fat yogurts and cheese.

    How important are sealants and fluoride?

    They are both very important. Fluoride strengthens tooth enamel and makes teeth more resistant to decay. Sealants protect teeth from plaque and acids on the tooth's surface, which is where most cavities originate.

    When will I know if my child needs braces?

    It varies with every individual, but most children get braces between the ages of eight and 14. During this age range, the teeth can be easily straightened because the head and mouth are still growing.

    Periodontics Gum

    Periodontitis is inflammatory diseases affecting the periodontium - that is, the tissues that surround and support the teeth. Periodontitis involves progressive loss of the bone around the teeth, and if left untreated, can lead to the loosening and cause loss of teeth. Periodontitis is caused by microorganisms that attach and grow on the tooth's surfaces .A diagnosis of periodontitis is established by inspecting the soft gum tissues around the teeth with a probe (i.e. a clinical exam) and by evaluating the patient's x-ray films (i.e a radiographic exam), to determine the amount of bone loss around the teeth.

    Oral Surgery

    Extraction of Wisdom Teeth

    The last teeth to develop and erupt into the jaws are called the third molars or wisdom teeth. Third molars usually erupt in the late teen years, which coincides with passage into adulthood and is referred to by some as the age of wisdom; hence "wisdom teeth". We believe that every tooth is precious & one of the main goals of modern dentistry will always be the prevention of tooth loss. All possible measures should be taken to preserve & maintain your teeth because the loss of a single tooth can have a major impact upon dental health & appearance. However it is still sometimes necessary to remove wisdom tooth if it causes any problems , and the dentist will determine the possibility for extraction.

    Extraction of Teeth

However it is still sometimes necessary to remove a tooth.

    Preventive Dentistry

    Pit of Fissure Sealants Treatments

    The top surfaces of your teeth - where the chewing takes place - are rough and has deep grooves called pits and fissures. These are places where plaque can build up and cannot be removed by your toothbrush and dental floss. Some of the pits and fissures are so narrow that even a single bristle from your toothbrush can't get deep enough to clean them out therefore can cause cavities in these pits and fissures.

    One method of preventing cavities from developing in the pits and fissures is to seal them off with a special pit and fissure sealant. Your dentist will clean the tooth first, then apply a mild acid solution to 'etch' the surface and make it easier for the pit and fissure sealant to stick. The whole procedure is quick and painless. Keeping the area dry and away from your saliva during the application is very important. If the tooth gets wet, the sealant might not stick properly. Once everything is ready, your dentist 'paints' the sealant right over the pits and fissures on the tooth surface. A special kind of light cures the sealant , by which we seal the pits.

    Oral Hygiene and Plaque

    •  Oral hygiene refers to keeping the mouth, and all the teeth, clean and free of dental plaque.
    •  "Daily oral hygiene practices such as brushing and flossing can prevent both caries and gingivitis."
    •  You are also advised to see your dentist twice a year for professional scaling and polishing.
    •   Dental plaque, calculus or tartar
    •  Dental plaque is a thin coating of bacteria and food particles that stick to teeth.
    •  Plaque cannot be rinsed off, but can only be removed by brushing and flossing.
    •  Dental plaque is formed when the bacteria that normally live in our mouths are allowed to accumulate on and attach to the teeth.
    •  Plaque converts dietary sugars to acid.
    •  The acid dissolves the tooth material and causes tooth to decay.
    •  Plaque calcifies and hardens to become calculus or tartar.
    •  These hardened deposits can only be removed by the dentist or hygienist by scaling and polishing , as brushing cannot do so.

    Why is oral hygiene important and best way to control dental plaque.

    •  The practise of oral hygiene is important because it prevents the build up of dental plaque.
    •  Plaque causes the two most common diseases like, dental decay & gum disease.
    •  The longer dental plaque sticks to the teeth, the greater is the risk of dental disease.
    •  Brushing and flossing will control plaque formation.
    •  Brush and floss twice a day, after breakfast and before bedtime.
    •  Rinse daily with a mouthwash.
    •  Eating less refined sugar will reduce plaque formation.

    Brushing

    Why do we brush our teeth?

    •  It is important to remove the dental plaque and food that stick to teeth, and cause decay and gum disease.
    •  Brushing and flossing are the most effective ways of controlling plaque.
    •  You need to be aware of the fact that plaque is being formed continuously.
    •  Plaque formation and growth cannot be stopped. Plaque can only be controlled by regular daily removal.

    How often should your toothbrush be changed?

    The toothbrush should be changed at the first sign of wear.

    •  The bristles may become flattened and lose their shape.
    •  Bristles wear differently from person to person depending on how the toothbrush is used.
    •  Plaque removal becomes less efficient with an old worn toothbrush.
    •  It is recommended that you change your toothbrush every four to six months.

    Are electric toothbrushes recommended by dentists?

    Electric toothbrushes have proven to be very successful in maintaining good oral health, and removing plaque.

    •  The action of the brush is more efficient than the manual brush for cleaning teeth.
    •  Electric toothbrushes are recommended for the elderly and people with arthritis or other.
    •  Disabilities, who may find it difficult to manage with a manual toothbrush.
    •  Children enjoy the fun of using an electric toothbrush. It will result in a more thorough cleaning of their teeth, particularly at an early age.
    •  As they grow older it may be less important to use an electric toothbrush.
    •  It is effective with fixed orthodontic appliances.
    •  Remember that the cleaning of teeth will only be successful, if the motivation exists to have healthy teeth and gums.
    •  Electric toothbrushes may provide interest and motivation for people who are reluctant to brush their teeth properly.
    •  Consult your dentist and follow the manufacturer's instructions.

    Routine Dental Examinations

    " Prevention is Better than Cure "

    This is what we strongly believe in & thereby encourage all our patients to come to us for regular routine dental check ups than to come to us with problems.

    These regular check ups that we conduct include

    •  Plaque & Calculus detection.
    •  Removal of sub & supragingival plaque & calculus by routine scaling & polishing procedures.
    •  Checking for any signs of tooth decay or cavities.
    •  Checking the already existing restorations & prosthesis.
    •  Checking for signs of food impaction.
    •  Regular Radiographs to rule out any future problems.

    A Beautiful Smile Begins with Healthy Gums

    Gum Diseases

    Did you know that more than 75% of all adults in India have gum disease?

    Many people have gum disease and are not even aware they have this problem. Did you know that gum disease is the #1 reason adults lose their teeth
    Gum disease is a “silent” disease-until your teeth become loose and fall out
    many people do not know they have it and how seriously they do.
    Did you know that HIV (the virus that causes AIDS) can be passed by kissing between two people who have advanced gum disease?

    Wondering if you have gum disease????

    "You have any one of theses symptoms then, do visit us soon to save your gums"
    Do your gums bleed when you brush, floss or use a toothpick?
    Are your gums red, swollen and painful?
    Do you have pus coming from between your gums and teeth if you push on your gums?
    Are your gums pulling away from your teeth?
    Has there been a change in the way your teeth come together when you bite or chew on food?
    Do your teeth look longer because of receding gums?
    Are your teeth loose?
    Do you have bad breath?
    If you wear a partial denture does it still fit the same?
    If any of these statements are true then you may have a problem with your gums.You should visit your dentist and get an evaluation and schedule an appointment. You may need more than just a routine cleaning for your teeth to get your gums healthy again.
    A thorough evaluation of your gums and your overall dental health includes a comprehensive examination, a complete set of x-rays, and periodontal probing.If there is bone loss and deep pocketing you may need non-surgical periodontal or surgical periodontal care.

    Did you know that gum diseases are treatable!!!!!!

    Treatment of Periodontal Disease

    Periodontal disease is completely treatable. Once periodontal disease has been detected and diagnosed, advanced procedures individually tailored to your stage of gum disease are performed:

    •  Scaling and Root Planning
    •  Non Surgical Laser Treatment
    •  Flap Surgery
    •  local Drug Delivery
    •  Bone Grafting.
