HOW IT’S DONE ?

Tooth extraction begins with a shot of anaesthetic for the tooth, gum and bone tissue surrounding it.
Using a elevator the dentist creates a space by twisting it around and presses the tooth and rocks it against the bone.
There are plier-like instruments which are used to grasp and pull teeth(dentist usually has a number of extraction forceps.).
The dentist will typically remove any infected or pathologic tissue by scraping the walls of the socket. He’ll also compress the socket using his finger to bring back its size.

The dentist places a folded gauze over the site of tooth extraction and asks you to bite down on it to create firm pressure, which will control bleeding.

Oral Prophylaxis

WHAT IS ORAL PROPHYLAXIS?

Oral Prophylaxis is a procedure done for teeth cleaning. It removes tartar and plaque build-up from the surfaces of the teeth as well as those hidden in between and under the gums.

WHY TO DO?

This simple procedure is a major part of an oral health care regimen needed to prevent cavities, gum disease and tooth loss brought on by dental disease. Prophylaxis can prevent the need for a costly dental treatment, such as a tooth filling or gum disease treatment.

HOW IT’S DONE?

Dentist uses either manual or ultrasonic scalers based on the amount of tartar or debris or plaque present.
In manual scalers the pressure will be given by us.
In ultrasonic scalers different scaler tips are used based on the amount of the plaque present and the pressure to be given also depeds on the amount of the plaque or debris present.

root canal treatment

root canal treatment

WHAT IS IT?

Root canal treatment is the process of going inside the pulp space and removing the infected and dead tissue. Then the space is disinfected and sealed with special materials.

WHO NEED IT ?

PERSISTENT PAIN.
SENSITIVITY TO HEAT AND COLD.
CRACKED TOOTH /CHIPPED TOOTH.
DISCOLOURED TOOTH.
TEETH MOBILITY.
SWOLLEN GUMS.
PAIN ON TOUCHING TOOTH/WHILE EATING.

HOW IT’S DONE?
STEP 1: Anesthetic

The dentist will place a small amount of numbing medication on your gum near the affected tooth.
Once it has taken effect, a local anesthetic will be injected into your gums.
You may feel a sharp pinch or a burning sensation, but this will pass quickly.

STEP 2: Removing the pulp

When your tooth is numb, the endodontist or general dentist will make a small opening in the top of the tooth.
Once the infected or damaged pulp is exposed, the specialist will carefully remove it using special tools called files.
They’ll be particularly careful to clean out all the pathways (canals) in your tooth.

STEP 3: Antibiotics

Once the pulp has been removed, the dentist may coat the area with a topical antibiotic to ensure that the infection is gone and to prevent reinfection.
Once the canals are cleaned and disinfected, the dentist will fill and seal the tooth with a sealer paste and rubber-like material called gutta-percha. They also may prescribe you oral antibiotics.

STEP 4: Temporary filling

The dentist will end the procedure by filling the small opening in the top of the tooth with a soft, temporary material.
This sealant helps prevent the canals from being damaged by saliva.

orthognatic surgery

orthognathic surgery

WHAT IS IT ?

Orthognathic surgery is surgery aimed to correction of functional and aesthetic of several dentofacial deformity through combination of orthodontic,surgical and possibly restorative dentistry.

INDICATIONS OF ORTHOGNATHIC SURGERY:

To make biting and chewing easier and to improve chewing overall.

To correct problems with swallowing or speech.

To minimize excessive wear and breakdown of the teeth.

To correct bite fit or jaw closure issues, such as when the molars touch but the front teeth don’t touch (open bite).

To correct facial imbalance (asymmetry), such as small chins, underbites, overbites and crossbites.

To improve the ability of the lips to fully close comfortably.

To relieve pain caused by temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder and other jaw problems.

To repair facial injury or birth defects.

To provide relief for obstructive sleep apnea.

HOW WE DO IT ?

In most cases, an orthodontist places braces on your teeth before surgery. Braces are usually on for 12 to18 months before surgery to level and align your teeth in preparation for surgery.

Your orthodontist and oral and maxillofacial surgeon work together to develop your treatment plan. X-rays,3dimensional CT,Computer Guided Treatment, pictures and models of your teeth are part of the planning for your jaw surgery. Occasionally, the difference in the way teeth fit together will require either reshaping of the teeth, covering the teeth with crowns or both to complete correction.

Surgery will be performed inside your mouth, so no facial scars show on your chin, jaw or around the mouth. However, sometimes small incisions may be required outside your mouth.

Your surgeon makes cuts in the jawbones and moves them into the correct position. Once your jaw movement is completed, tiny bone plates, screws, wires and rubber bands may be used to secure the bones into their new position. These screws — which are smaller than a bracket used for braces — become integrated into the bone structure over time.

In some cases, extra bone may be added to the jaw. Your surgeon transfers the bone from your hip, leg or rib and secures it with plates and screws. In other cases, bone may be reshaped to provide a better fit.

Jaw surgery may be performed on the upper jaw, lower jaw, chin or any combination of these.

implants

implants

WHAT IS IT ?

A dental implant is used to support one or more false teeth. It is a titanium screw that can replace the root of a tooth when it fails. Just like a tooth root, it is placed into the jawbone.

WHO NEED IT?

  • People who have one or more missing teeth.
  • People who have healthy oral tissues.
  • People who are unable or unwilling to wear dentures.
  • People who wants to improve their speech.

HOW WE DO IT ?

During surgery to place the dental implant, your oral surgeon makes a cut to open your gum and expose the bone. Holes are drilled into the bone where the dental implant metal post will be placed. Since the post will serve as the tooth root, it’s implanted deep into the bone.

At this point, you’ll still have a gap where your tooth is missing. A type of partial, temporary denture can be placed for appearance, if needed. You can remove this denture for cleaning and while you sleep.
