Root canal treatment –single sitting
The Root Canal Treatment procedure should ideally be carried out by an endodontist. An Endodontist is a dentist who specializes in treating diseases and injuries of the pulp and tissues surrounding the root of the tooth.
Act as artificial tooth root. They are made of sterile titanium cylinders, and recommended by dentists for a variety of functions. Depending on your needs and condition, dental implants can replace one or more teeth without affecting adjacent teeth, as well as provide support for a bridge, eliminating the need for a removable, partial denture.
Cleaning and polishing
The American Dental Association recommends the following for good oral hygiene:
- Brush your teeth twice a day with an ADA-accepted fluoride toothpaste. Replace your toothbrush every three or four months, or sooner if the bristles are frayed. A worn toothbrush won't do a good job of cleaning your teeth.
- Clean between teeth daily with floss or an interdental cleaner. Decayâ€“causing bacteria still linger between teeth where toothbrush bristles canâ€™t reach. This helps remove plaque and food particles from between the teeth and under the gum line.
- Eat a balanced diet and limit between-meal snacks.
- Visit your dentist regularly for professional cleanings and oral exams.
Crowns & Bridges
Ceramic Crowns are used to restore the shape, strength and function of a decayed tooth. After a tooth has had a Root Canal Treatment, the tooth has a tendency to fracture. To prevent this, the tooth is reinforced with a Crown. The most commonly used one is the Ceramic Fused to Metal crown. The strength comes from the metal, and the natural look which matches that of the adjacent teeth comes from the Ceramic that is fused to the metal. The tooth then can be used normally for both looks and for eating.
Ceramic Bridges are used to replace teeth that have had to be removed for some unavoidable reason. In those cases where a tooth that has been previously removed and needs to be replaced, the commonest, quickest and a very efficient option is that of a Ceramic Bridge.
In the making of a Ceramic Bridge the adjacent teeth are used as supports. Just as the name suggests these adjacent teeth allow us to Bridge the gap between them by replacing the missing tooth. This is a fixed structure and does not need to be removed on a daily basis for cleaning.
It matches the natural teeth so well both in looks and in function, that it becomes a part of the mouth in totality. A Bridgeis so comfortable that after a while the person forgets that he has a replaced tooth in his mouth. This the best testimonial that can be given by any patient.
Believe it or not, gum problems are the most common diseases affecting the human population.
If food is allowed to accumulate between the tooth and the gum margin, it forms plaque along with the microbes. The resultant irritation of the gum margins produces a condition called as characterized by redness, bleeding and swelling of the gums. If proper attention is paid at this stage the condition is perfectly reversible.
If the gum diseases are not treated in time, the infection from the gums can spread to involve the underlying bone and may cause loosening or migration or loss of the tooth. Sometimes the infection may cause pus formation that can involve adjoining tissues and may cause swelling, pus discharge, bone infection etc.
Chronic gum diseases where pus oozes out of the gum margins (pyorrhea)/Periodontitis can affect the general health of a person. At this stage the teeth start shaking, they are unable to withstand chewing forces and foul smell starts from the mouth.
Dentistry for children
A common question that parents ask is "why spend on the maintenance of milk teeth when they are to be finally replaced by the permanent ones?" Milk teeth are as important as the permanent ones because
- Baby teeth are important in proper feeding and nutrition.
- Milk teeth serve as space maintainers for the proper spacing and alignment of the permanent teeth.
- Healthy milk teeth are crucial in helping the baby learn how to speak properly.
- Healthy looking teeth are important in building self-confidence at an early age. Small children because of immaturity are quick to tease peers about ugly looking or decayed teeth.
- No: of teeth missing

Full mouth rehabilitation
This is a concept where after a proper examination and diagnosis a treatment plan is sketched out to fully rehabilitate patient's quality of teeth and associated structures to the maximum possible function and aesthetics.
