DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT PLANNING
Accurate diagnosis of your symptoms and affordable treatment planning for that. We not only attend the chief complaint of the patient but we also care for the overall oral health need of the patient.
- It also referred to as exodontia.
- It is the removal of a tooth from the jaw.
- Extractions are performed for a wide variety of reasons, including tooth decay that has destroyed enough tooth structure to render the tooth non-restorable.
Extractions of impacted or problematic wisdom teeth are routinely performed, as are extractions of some permanent teeth to make space for orthodontic treatment
- It involves the removal of teeth that cannot be easily accessed, either because they have broken under the gum line or because they have not erupted fully.
- Surgical extractions almost always require an incision.
- In a surgical extraction the doctor may elevate the soft tissues covering the tooth and bone and may also remove some of the overlying and/or surrounding jawbone tissue with a drill or osteotome. Frequently, the tooth may be split into multiple pieces to facilitate its removal.
Cyst is a circumscribed area of infection which can develop in our jaws due to developmental defect or dental infection. This condition needs surgical intervention under local/general anesthesia.
It is a surgical procedure performed by dentist to expose a greater amount of tooth structure for the purpose of subsequently restoring the tooth prosthetically.
GUM DISEASES AND TREATMENT
- Periodontitis or pyorrhea is a set of inflammatory diseases affecting the periodontium, i.e., the tissues that surround and support the teeth.
- Periodontitis involves progressive loss of the alveolar bone around the teeth, and if left untreated, can lead to the loosening and subsequent loss of teeth.
SCALING /TEETH CLEANING:
- It is generally term used by dentist for cleaning the teeth .
- It is part of oral hygiene and involves the removal of dental plaque from teeth with the intention of preventing cavities , gingivits and gum disease.
- It is the most effective treatment for Periodontitis, a condition where tartar builds up inside pockets created by receding gums.
- Tartar thus formed cannot be removed by conventional methods and can eventually lead to loss of tooth. Root planing is a specialized skill involving scaling of the root of the tooth.
FLAP SURGERY /GUM SURGERY:
- It’s a surgical procedure used to treat advanced periodontitis that cannot be treated with anti biotics or by scaling and planing.
- In advanced periodontis, the bones, gums and tissues that support are attacked by infection and are gradually destroyed. Flap procedure involves the cleaning of the roots of the teeth and methods such as bone grafts, soft tissue grafts or Guided tissue regeneration to repair the damaged tissues and bones.
- A dental filling involves the use of dental restorative materials to protect the integrity and function of tooth which is harmed due to any kind of decay in the tooth.
- We do Best and tooth coloured filling (composite and GIC) materials.
- Sealants are thin, plastic coatings painted on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth. Chewing surfaces of back teeth are rough and uneven because they have small pits and grooves.
- Food and germs get stuck in the pits and grooves. So to prevent it from decay it should be sealed.
- Root canal treatment (also called Endodontics) is needed when the pulp inside your tooth becomes infected through tooth decay or damaged by an injury to your mouth.
- This infection may spread through the root canal system, causing high degree of pain. If root canal treatment is not carried out, the tooth may need to be taken out.
- Post and core is a dental restoration used to sufficiently build up tooth structure for future restoration i.e. crown when there is not enough tooth structure to properly retain the crown.
- Post: Placed within the body of RCT treated tooth.
- Core: Part of restoration that shows out of mouth to help anchor cap or crown.
- Inlays and onlays are two types of restorations that your dentist can suggest if you have a large cavity in your tooth that needs to be filled.
- An inlay is a small filling that fits into the biting surface of a tooth while an onlay covers a larger area of the tooth and is better suited to bigger cavities. Inlays and onlays are a conservative alternative to full coverage dental crowns.
- Best material used for this porcelain or resin.
- Our clinic provides inlays and onlays precise fitting and best long lasting materials.
MISSING TEETH REPLACEMENT
- A dental denture is an appliance which is worn to replace lost or missing teeth to enable you to enjoy a healthy diet and smile with confidence.
COMPLETE OR FULL REMOVABLE DENTURE
- It is one that replaces all of the natural teeth in either the upper or lower jaws.
REMOVABLE PARTIAL DENTURE
- It fills in the spaces created by lost or missing teeth and is attached to your natural teeth with metal clasps or devices called precision attachments
REMOVABLE FLEXIBLE DENTURE:-
- Flexible denture has one of the highest comfort levels of any denture available. Flexibility allows the denture to lock in and around the undercut. It is so light and thin you can hardly feel you are wearing them. Cosmetic wise pleasant.
REMOVABLE IMMEDIATE DENTURE:-
Immediate denture is a complete denture or partial denture inserted on the same day immediately following removal of natural teeth
- A crown is an artificial tooth that fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape of a natural tooth. A crown is sometimes known as a ‘cap’.
- Crowns are an ideal restoration for teeth that have been broken, or have been weakened by decay or a very large filling. They can be made of porcelain or metal or a combination of these materials
- A dental crown could be used for a number of other reasons, for instance:
– you may have discoloured fillings and would like to improve the appearance of the tooth
– for cosmetic reasons where a front tooth has become very discoloured or damaged
– you may have had a root filling which will need a crown to protect and strengthen it
TYPES OF CROWN:
1.PROCELAIN FUSED TO METAL:
Consist of metal interior or base which is fused to procelain crown.
2. ALL METAL CROWN:
These restorations are made using gold and “white” (sliver colored) dental They are know for their greater strength
3. ZIRCORNIUM CROWN (ALL CERAMIC):
Its also known as metal free crown. It is worn to improve the appearance of tooth. It has translucent appearances
A bridge is a type of dental device which act as replacement for missing /damged teeth. It hides the gap caused by missing teeth hence the use of term “bridge” and improves both appearance of teeth and face general.
WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS
- When describing dental implants, the best comparison is to your natural teeth.
- A natural tooth consists of two parts, the root of the tooth buried below the gum line, and the white enamel that is visible above it.
- Similarly, a dental implant has the titanium component buried invisibly below the gum, and on top of it the porcelain crown which is matched to the color of your own teeth.
WHEN DO WE USE IMPLANTS?
- A single missing tooth at the front or back (implant crown)
- Many or all missing teeth (implant bridge). It may not be necessary to place one implant for every missing tooth, e.g. 3 porcelain teeth can be attached to two implants
- Under complete dentures. There is an enormous improvement in the fit, comfort and chewing ability of dentures that are attached to implants.
- Ceramic braces work just like metal braces. They however blend in better with the natural appearance of your teeth for an overall great look. They are a combination of strength and beauty.
BENEFITS OF CERAMIC BRACES
- Translucent brackets, which blend in with your teeth
- Able to carry out both complex and simple tooth movements.
- Suitable for everyone
- Lingual braces are very similar to convention fixed braes, except they are placed on the tongue side of the teeth, meaning they are completely invisible. They can only be felt by the tongue of the patient wearing them inside his/her mouth and give the same desired result as conventional ceramic braces.
BENEFITS OF LINGUAL BRACES
- Completely invisible- as the appliances are on the inside aspect of the teeth, they are completely invisible.
- Effective- As these have a similar mechanism to convention braces, they are just as effective at moving and aligning teeth.
- Predicable- This form of treatment is very predictable as to the outcome which is expected
- Clear Aligners are an alternative to traditional braces and are designed to help guide teeth into their proper position. Similar to braces, clear aligners use a gradual force to control tooth movement, but without metal wires or brackets.
- The aligners are made of a strong plastic material and are fabricated to fit each person’s mouth. If a series of aligners are made, each aligner moves the teeth a little bit more into place until the desired movement is completed
BENEFITS OF CLEAR ALIGNERS
- Removable- the appliances can be removed to eat and if you have an important meeting or occasion to attend to. They need to be worn for at least 22 hours a day. Each aligner is worn for three weeks before changing to the next one
- The length of treatment with aligners depends upon the severity of each case. Typically, aligner treatment can be as short as three weeks or as long as six months. Still, a much shorter treatment than traditional braces.
- Clear- The aligners area see through, and once in your mouth are very discreet.
- Customized- the aligners are customized for your teeth as we take mould of your teeth which the lab will scan.
Comfortable- the appliances are smooth and very comfortable to wear. There are no wires of sharp brackets which can sometimes cause irritation
CHILD DENTAL CARE
Dental proceduresfor infants, children, & young adults follow the same basic pattern as adult procedures except for the very important difference that each one is carried out with the particular needs of our young patients, their physical as well as psychological needs.
These types of caries occur suddenly, which spreads to adjacent tooth, causing pain faster than normal decay. These cavities are soft and yellowish brown in color. The uniqueness of this decay is the decay spread to upper as well as lower teeth with short duration. Usually diet analysis & modification of diet by reducing the amount of frequency of sucrose consumption is done.
Nursing bottle caries is the primary type of tooth decay observed in infants. Bottle feeding, especially nocturnal feeding or when child are allowed to sleep with bottle in their mouth, leads to nursing bottle caries. During sleep there is reduction in salivary flow causing milk stagnation in the mouth leading to tooth decay/cavities. These cavities will appear as white spots on the tooth especially seen in upper teeth. Over a period of time, these cavities will be formed which appears as yellow, brown & black stains. This is an alarming sign because the disease is widespread, among young children and if untreated can lead to early loss of teeth due to decay. Proper oral hygiene, feeding pattern & dietary practices to be followed by the caretaker to avoid nursing bottle caries
- Young children can lose primary (baby) teeth and even immature permanent teeth when the pulp, the living tissue inside a tooth, becomes infected.
- This is often the result of trauma or dental caries (tooth decay) and creates a special problem for the child.
- The primary teeth provide important guides for the newly developing permanent teeth that will replace them.
- And injury resulting in loss of young permanent teeth can be even more troublesome, because neither tooth development, nor jaw growth is complete.
To avoid early loss of milk teeth due to decay, children should be assessed periodically and any detected tooth decay must be removed carefully and tooth restored.
ROOT CANAL TREATMENT
- For both functional and cosmetic reasons, endodontic (“endo” – inside; “dont” – tooth) or root canal treatment is preferable to tooth loss.
- It can preserve tooth, jaw and tongue function. It can also prevent speech problems, and abnormal eruption of a permanent successor tooth, or even the loss of a tooth that has no successor.
- Treatment for various stages of pulpal involvement for baby teeth with trauma and decay are:
PULPOTOMY:-It is the removal of a portion of pulp , including the diseased aspect with the intent of maintaining the vitality of the remaining pulpal tissue by means of a therapeutic dressing. It is done when teeth cariously exposed .
PULPECTOMY:-It is required when the entire pulp is involved into the root canals of tooth. During this treatment the diseased pulp tissue is removed from both crown and root.
If root canal treatment for the milk teeth is done readymade steel crowns are used to restore the tooth to maintain the space in the jaws and also to get the form and function of the teeth back.
Fluoride varnish provides the most effective way of topical fluoride application on a child’s teeth. Fluoride varnishes prevent and even reverse early childhood caries. They have proven efficacy in reducing cavities in both primary and permanent teeth.
A fluoride varnish is a professionally applied adherent material which consists of high concentration of fluoride in fast drying, alcohol based solutions of natural varnishes.
WHAT IS A PIT FISSURE SEALANT?
The top surfaces of your teeth – where the chewing takes place – aren’t smooth and flat. They are cris-crossed with tiny hills and valleys – called pits and fissures. These are places where plaque can build up safe from 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.
One method of preventing cavities from developing in the pits and fissures is to seal them off with a special varnish called a pit and fissure sealant
- “Space maintainers,” specially made appliances that can be attached to adjacent teeth or fabricated in a removable “retainer” style, are generally the best choice.
Yet many do not restore function, and all require constant monitoring
HABIT BREAKING TREATMENTS
What are the different habits that can be seen in children?
Tongue thrusting etc.
What are habit breaking appliances?
These are appliances that are made by a Dental Surgeon in dental laboratory to combat the above habits in children. They can be either a fixed appliance or removable appliance type.
A bright and winning smile conveys confidence, optimism and affability. Feelings of dissatisfaction about one’s own smile can lead to withdrawal, low self esteem and insecurity.
Smile Designing or Smile Makeover is gaining popularity due to advancements made in cosmetic dentistry.
We design a good and attractive smile by our multi-disciplinary approach, to craft the smile that you had always dreamed of.
- The most common causes for teeth discolorations include aging, consumption of staining substances (coffee, tea, colas, tobacco, betel nut etc.) and old discolored fillings in the teeth. Consumption of the antibiotic TETRACYCLINEor excessive fluorides during the formation of tooth may also cause tooth discoloration.
- Bleaching of teeth is a procedure which is useful in lightening discolorations which have accumulated on the tooth surface over a period of time. Mild bleaching agents are used in this procedure for teeth whitening. This method is ideal for stains caused by age or food.
- It can be a very effective way of lightening the natural colour of your teeth without removing any of the tooth surfaces. It cannot make a complete colour change, but it may lighten the existing shade.
- A veneer is a thin layer of porcelain made to fit over the front surface of a tooth, like a false fingernail fits over a nail. Sometimes a natural-colour ‘composite’ material is used instead of porcelain.
WHEN WOULD I NEED A VENEER?
- Veneers can improve the colour, shape and position of your teeth. A precise shade of porcelain can be chosen to give the right colour to improve a single discoloured tooth or to lighten your front teeth. A veneer can make a chipped tooth look whole again. The porcelain covers the whole of the front of the tooth, with a thicker section replacing the broken part.
Dental fillers are used to close cavities or cracks on the teeth. The most sought after anterior dental filler is the tooth coloured composite resin as it discretely blends with the color of the natural teeth and is free of toxic mercury.
- The most common cause of darker pigments in the gums is genetics. Excess melanin can build up in the gums, making them look brown or black instead of pink. This is more common in certain ethnic groups like people with African or Middle Eastern ancestry. The extra pigment does not indicate any disease or dysfunction. Patients seek treatment because of an aesthetic preference for pink gums that showcase their teeth better.
- Other causes for dark gums include smoking, side effects from certain medications and possible effect of amalgam fillings on the gum.
- People who have excessive gum covering the front teeth and an upper lip that comes up high when they smile are often self-conscious about their “gummy” smile. An uneven gum-line can make the teeth appear to have different lengths, which results in an unattractive smile.
- Gum lift is a cosmetic dental procedure that corrects uneven or excessive gums. The procedure involves reshaping the tissue and/or underlying bones to create the appearance of longer or more symmetrical teeth. Along with the teeth, the gums also play a significant role in increasing the aesthetic value of smile.
