Crowns or caps are covers that fit over a teeth damaged by decay, broken, badly stained or mis- shaped.

• Periodontal Treatment/Gum Surgery

People may suffer from various gum problems due to poor oral hygiene. Gum disease or periodontal is an infection of the gums and jaw bone. It can lead to a loss of gum and teeth. There are two main stages gingivitis and periodontitis where former is the milder and reversible form. Depending on the severity of the condition, these problems are treated by either conservative non-surgical or advanced surgical procedures such as bone-grafting, membrane transplants and flap surgery. The patients are trained on technique of self care to prevent any recurrence.

• Endodontic Treatment

Root canal treatment is most effective to treat badly decayed / fractured tooth. The tooth is opened and the infected tissue in the center is cleaned out. The space is then filled and the opening is sealed. The patient can retain their natural teeth and radiant smile after the treatment.

• Oral Surgery

There are various oral – surgical procedures such as placement of dental implants, removal of impacted wisdom molars, correction of jaw-fractures, cyst enucleation etc.

• Prosthodontics

The permanent replacement of missing teeth and full mouth rehabilitation is carried out with Implants and Prosthesis, Fixed Bridges and Removable Dentures. Dentures are prosthetic devices that replace the lost teeth. There are partial and full dentures. Full dentures are also known as ‘false teeth’. Bridges are also false teeth anchored in place by neighboring teeth. There are two crowns on the anchoring teeth along with the false tooth in the centre. Dental implants are artificial roots that support the replacement teeth.

• Orthodontics

The crooked teeth and deleterious oral-habits can be corrected for all age groups using precise, minimally visible and comfortable braces. A dental brace is something which corrects the alignment of the teeth and other bite-related problems (including under bite, overbite, etc.).

• Extractions

A severely damaged tooth has to be extracted. Also permanent teeth may be removed for orthodontic treatment.

• Bonding

The decayed, chipped, fractured or discolored teeth can be repaired by bonding. It also reduces the gap between teeth and used to build up older teeth to make them look younger. The dentist mixes composite resin which is a type of plastic into a paste, then tints the mixture to whiten or match the color of the teeth. Several layers of resin are applied to each tooth and each layer is hardened under an ultraviolet light or laser. At last the resin material is shaped and polished so that the finished tooth looks natural and smooth. Bonding can be done on people of all ages, including children, as the resin can be replaced as teeth grow.

• Oral cancer examination

Oral cancer screening is a routine part of dental examination. The dentist checks for lumps or irregular tissue changes in the neck, head, face and inside the mouth. They also look for sores or discolored tissue in the mouth.

Dental sealants are usually applied to the chewing surface of teeth and they act as a barrier against decay-causing bacteria. Mostly they are applied to the back teeth i.e. premolars and molars.
