Dental Implants

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are used to replace missing teeth. Fixed (permanent) or removable replacement teeth that are made to match your natural teeth are supported by implants.  Dental implants can give you a new base to support new teeth to function and feel like natural teeth. They are devices for attaching artificial replacement teeth firmly to the bone. Implants can be used to support a single crown or as anchors for fixed bridges. fixed or removable partial or complete dentures. 

Dental implants will help you regain your smile and improve your self-esteem.

Dental implants do away with the embarrassment of removing dentures and the need for messy adhesives to keep them in place.

Implants are extremely long-lasting and will last for several years. Many implants will last a lifetime with proper care.

Orthodontics (Dental Braces)

Teeth and jaws that are not aligned properly are very common. Orthodontics is a dental specialty that focuses on the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of crooked teeth and jaws, as well as misaligned bite patterns.

Crooked teeth can be harder to clean, which can lead to tooth decay or periodontal disease. Teeth that don't fit correctly can make it harder to chew, leading to headaches, shoulder or back pain, and even temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders.


Orthodontic treatments use a variety of appliances to retrain muscles, move teeth slowly, and influence jaw growth by applying gentle pressure to your teeth and jaw.

BRACES - The bands are the anchors that keep your teeth in place. Brackets are metal brackets that are screwed to the front of your jaws. The brackets are connected to the bands by arch wires. The archwires are tightened, putting pressure on your teeth and gradually moving them towards their target position. Braces are typically adjusted monthly and worn for a period of time ranging from a few months to a few years.


SPLINTS are jaw repositioning appliances. They're used to treat TMJ disorders by training the jaw to close in a better position. They can be worn on the top or bottom jaw.

HEADGEAR – These devices prevent the upper jaw from growing too quickly. They also serve to keep the back teeth in place while the front teeth are being pushed back.

Ortho for Children
Children's teeth may fall out early. In such cases, your child's orthodontist may place a space maintainer in his or her mouth to keep the space open until a permanent tooth emerges. To control thumb sucking or tongue thrusting, a fixed appliance may also be prescribed by your dentist.

Zirconia (Metal-free) Crowns

Zirconia is highly recommended dental crown material because of its biocompatibility, which means it's less likely to cause an allergic reaction or an immunological response like inflammation.

One potential disadvantage of a zirconia crown is its opaque appearance, which can make your teeth look less than natural.

The following are alternatives to Zirconia crowns: ceramic, porcelain, metal, composite resin, combinations of materials, such as porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM)

Zirconia restorations last longer than porcelain because of their outstanding durability and strength. While porcelain crowns typically need to be replaced after a few years, zirconia crowns have a 99 percent five-year survival rate.


All Ceramic Crowns

All-ceramic crowns are made of pure ceramic and reflect light in the same way that your natural teeth do. Because there is no metal in all-ceramic crowns, they appear to be entirely lifelike.

They are resistant to breakage because they have an aluminum oxide ceramic core that is covered in pure porcelain. All ceramic crowns are more comfortable to use than metal crowns because they fit better and are not temperature sensitive.

Porcelain-fused-to-metal Crowns

 Metals used in crowns include gold alloy, other alloys (for example, palladium) or a base-metal alloy (for example, nickel or chromium). Compared with other crown types, less tooth structure needs to be removed with metal crowns, and tooth wear to opposing teeth is kept to a minimum. Metal crowns withstand biting and chewing forces well and probably last the longest in terms of wear down.  Also, they rarely chip or break. The metallic color is the main drawback. Metal crowns are a good choice for out-of-sight molars.

Porcelain crown with metal (per crown) —Dental crowns made of porcelain fused to metal are stronger than all-ceramic versions and more aesthetically pleasing than those made of metal. However, their metal shell gives porcelain fused to metal crowns an opaque appearance. Because they lack the reflective quality of natural teeth, porcelain fused to metal crowns are not as discreet as all ceramic crowns. Additionally, over time, a thin metal band may be visible along the gum line with this type of crown.


Dental Enamel Whitening

Every tooth is covered by enamel. It’s a hard mineralized substance that protects the softer layer of dentin underneath, and the even softer nerve center called the pulp. Without strong enamel, decay could easily destroy the good health of a tooth. That’s why fluoride is so important. It gets absorbed into tooth enamel to strengthen it and help it resist decay.


Whitening the enamel will require laser treatment. Hydrogen Peroxide is the active ingredient in the light activated whitening gel. As the Hydrogen Peroxide breaks down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin, bleaching colored substances while leaving the tooth's structure intact. The light helps activate the hydrogen peroxide and help it penetrate the tooth's surface.


Extensive research and clinical studies indicate that whitening teeth under the supervision of a dentist is safe. In fact, many dentists consider whitening the safest cosmetic dental procedure available.




Dentures

A denture is a removable dental appliance that replaces missing teeth and soft tissues. Complete and partial dentures are the two kinds of dentures available. When all of the teeth are missing, complete dentures are used, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.


  • Types of Dentures
    • Partial denture with metal frame
    • Partial denture without metal frame
    • Flexible dentures
    • Complete dentures




Functional Occlusion

The way the teeth meet when the lower jaw (mandible) and upper jaw (maxilla) come together is referred to as occlusion. The occlusal contacts of the maxillary and mandibular teeth during function, such as speech, mastication, and swallowing, are referred to as functional occlusion.

Speech will be hampered by malocclusion, and swallowing will be difficult. When dental appliances are used to correct the problem, it can also enhance the patient's facial features, giving them more confidence when speaking and smiling.
