In case the infection spreads deep into the pulp (the living tissue) within your tooth root, the tooth can still be saved by performing root canal treatment.

  Some details about malocclusion
  What is malocclusion?
 
Malocclusion means "irregular teeth." It’s when upper and lower teeth don’t meet correctly, or when teeth and jaws are not positioned for appropriate dental health. This condition affects growth of the jaws, speech development, appearance of face and mouth, health of the gums and approachability of teeth for cleaning.
 

Why is treatment important?

 
If treatment is delayed or not taken, many problems get worse and more complicated (and expensive) to remedy. Malocclusion, apart from poor facial appearance can cause excessive wear of tooth enamel, poor chewing ability, stress on the gums and jawbone, jaw joint and facial and neck pains. Correcting the malocclusion can not only improve facial appearance but also overall oral health.
How is it done?
Treatment of a malocclusion involves a thorough evaluation of specific condition by an orthodontist. This may include recommendations for the removal of some primary or permanent teeth because some malocclusions cannot be treated successfully without doing so. Extraction of some teeth in severely crowded conditions enhances proper alignment, function and appearance, too.

How is a diagnosis of a malocclusion performed?

Each child’s specific condition dictates the diagnostic procedures, but they often include several or all of the following:
Clinical exam
Medical and dental history
Impressions of the teeth for making plaster models
Photographs of the face and teeth to provide a record of the child’s facial
  & appearance prior to treatment
Panoramic X-rays showing all the upper and lower teeth in biting position, and
  teeth that are not yet visible
Lateral (Cephalometric) X-ray of the entire head showing the relationship of the
  teeth and jaws to the face and skull
  How long does treatment take?
 
Each condition is unique and must be treated individually. The actual time is dependent on the growth of the child’s mouth and face, the severity of the problem and the cooperation of the child in following instructions. Mild correction problems or early treatment may take only a few months. Treatment for more complex malocclusions range from one to two years.

An attractive smile, proper alignment, and healthy teeth are valuable rewards gained from a custom-designed treatment program made for smile after smile!

A perfect smile can solve multifaceted problems like capturing a job, getting an appropriate wedding proposal or making your way through a superb social life.

So do not wait any further, take an appointment with us and get braces fitted to get a perfect smile.

  Artificial teeth Top
 
Dentures are the devices constructed to replace missing teeth, and which are supported by surrounding soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity. Conventional dentures are removable; however there are many different denture designs, some which rely on bonding or clasping onto teeth or dental implants.

Removable partial dentures are for patients who are missing some of their teeth on a particular

 

arch. Fixed partial dentures, also known as "crown and bridge", are made from crowns that are fitted on the remaining teeth.

Dental bridges are false teeth, known as a pontics, which are fused between two porcelain crowns to fill in the area left by a missing tooth. The two crowns holding it in place that are attached onto your teeth on each side of the false tooth. This is known as a fixed bridge. This procedure is used to replace one or more missing teeth. Fixed bridges cannot be taken out of your mouth as you might do with removable partial dentures.

Bridges can reduce your risk of gum disease, help correct some bite issues and even improve your speech. Bridges require your commitment to serious oral hygiene, but will last as many as ten years or more.

  Implants Top
 
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root placed inside in the jaw bone to support artificial tooth or group of teeth. It comprises of a titanium screw (resembling a tooth root) with a roughened surface. Dental implant is the best way to replace missing teeth.

The treatment requires appropriate case selection with good bone integrity. For dental implant procedure to work, there must be enough bone in

 
the jaw, and the bone has to be strong enough to hold and support the implant. After the initial diagnosis, the dentist places a dental implant under local or general anesthesia by special instruments (precision drills). A period of two to six months is required for the bone to integrate and adapt the implant after which an artificial tooth is loaded over the implant.
  Gum corrective treatments Top
 
 
 
Gums and the supporting tissues around teeth act as strong pillars to support your teeth and keep them fixed in the jaw bones. Gums are very prone to swelling and infection, as tartar deposition is a constant phenomena happening in our mouths. This can lead to bad odor from the mouth and even loosening of the teeth if infection gets severe.

We are here to help you out with all these problems with our wide range of gum treatments, including scaling, polishing, root planning, and gum surgeries.

  We provide a specialized care with the latest equipments and technology at our clinic.
  Preventive dental care: Top
 
“Catch them young” is the philosophy followed when it comes to prevention of dental problems.

A large number of dental problems start at an early age, so it is imperative to provide a routine dental check up to the children and render care to them as soon as a problem is detected.

  Fluoride application:
 
A fluoride gel can be applied over the teeth of children who are susceptible to tooth decay, twice in a year or so, which is quite useful and protect teeth from cavities.
  Pits and fissure sealants:
There are small pin point depressions on the top surface of the teeth where the decay starts first.  An answer to this problem is to put a cement or resin material into pits and fissures of caries susceptible teeth framing a mechanical and physical protective layer against the action of acid producing bacteria and their substrates.
Correction of malocclusion early in childhood:
Sometimes early fall of milk teeth can lead to loss of space which in turn can make the permanent teeth erupt in an improper position causing a bad bite and irregular teeth in children. If this problem is detected at an early age, development of irregularities can be prevented, thus avoiding your child to go a longer, more cumbersome and a costlier treatment in future.

On the contrary, if these milk teeth don’t shed on time and make space for their permanent counterparts to come, then also a similar problem of bad bite can arise. In such a cases too, consultation with an orthodontist is a must.
