Scaling and polishing is the process of removing or eliminating agents like dental plaque and calculus (yellow or brown deposits on teeth) using an ultrasonic scaler.
Laser assisted teeth whitening or bleaching is the advanced method for lightening the current shade of the teeth to a lighter shade. A whitening gel is used in a dental to carry out the procedure and treated with laser. The procedure can be completed in less than 45 minutes at a dental clinic.
Root planning and curettage/ Flap or deep cleaning, as it is commonly known, involves detailed scaling of the root surface to decrease inflammation of the gum tissue. The ultrasonic scaling device removes tartar, plaque, biofilm and dead or diseased tissue from the root surface underneath the gum line. Followed by a LASER debridement of tissue and disinfection.
Simple dental filling is the insertion of a tooth coloured filler material (composite or GIC) in the cavity of the tooth left behind after removal of the tooth decay. Another form of dental fillings is inlays to fill large cavities which is fabricated in ceramic or zirconia material. Aesthetic restorations are generally carried out for chipped tooth/ partly broken front teeth or minor gaps in front teeth (known as diastema). These are done in tooth coloured composite resin material for perfect teeth shade matching.
Root canal treatment is the removal of inflammatory and infected pulp to save from complete tooth loss. Pulp is removed and the canal is disinfected with LASER. The canal is then filled with an artificial filling material and sealed. A post, which is a prefabricated metal or fiber structure is inserted in cases of major damage to the tooth structure. Crown is placed on the root canal treated tooth structure to provide strength.
Braces are used to correct crooked or misaligned teeth, mostly in children between the age group of 12- 16 years, however adults can also get braces for the same treatment. Brackets are placed on teeth and are connected with wires and modules to cause the forces of correction. Simple braces are available in ceramic or metal options. Self-ligating braces are an advanced option. Lingual braces are placed behind the teeth Clear aligners are a revolutionary new technology for straightening teeth utilizing a series of custom-made clear aligners set. They are made of transparent plastic sheets that fit over the teeth to reposition them. This treatment requires very infrequent visits for orthodontic checkup and its concealing property makes it ideal for adults
A crown is a complete restoration for the visible portion of the tooth and is sometimes referred to as a "cap". Crowns are typically made from ceramic or zirconia, materials used due to their strength, durability, resistance to staining, ease of color matching and natural appearance. Crowns are typically used in restoration when the structure of a tooth has been seriously impacted and fillings are not adequate to restore a tooth. Veneers are thin shells of material that are bonded onto the surface of the teeth, and made from the same material as crowns. Veneers are used for cosmetic restoration of teeth that are worn, discolored, chipped or crooked or to fill spaces between front teeth. Veneers can be used on a single tooth or multiple teeth, matching the existing color of the other teeth, for a complete smile makeover.
Bridge consists of multiple crowns joint together and is used to fill space(s) left by permanent tooth loss. A bridge is held in place with support from adjacent natural teeth or implants. It provides overall strength to the affected area and keeps adjoining teeth structure in position and improves the function of chewing Dentures are artificial teeth, typically removable but also come in fixed option, and could be full or partial depending upon the clinical requirement.
Dental implant is a titanium screw that is surgically drilled into the bone, allowed to heal and osseointegrate with the bone for natural tooth like stability and durability in the long term. Post-healing a crown/bridge is placed over the implant to give it a natural tooth look and restore function. It is the most advanced solution for replacement of missing teeth. Key hole surgeries are performed to reduce the amout of bone exposed.
Surgery performed to remove a decayed, severely damaged or impacted tooth such as non-erupted wisdom tooth. Some extractions can be performed without surgery too. Oral cyst removal, oral cancer detection, skin grafting and cleft lip surgery also can be done. Maxillofacial surgery is the surgical removal of tissue or teeth affected by diseases, injuries or defects that directly affect the jawbone or face function and appearance.
Artificial structures fabricated to replace lost oral structures (teeth, jawbone, palate, etc.) and facial structures (eye, ear, etc.) due to congenitally missing, trauma, cancer, or surgical removal. Materials used to reconstruct include acrylic, ceramic, and silicon
