Dental Implants & Allied Procedures
Dental implants revolutionize tooth replacement by surgically anchoring artificial roots (typically titanium) into the jawbone. This stable foundation supports custom-made crowns, bridges, or dentures, replicating natural teeth in form and function. Procedures encompass thorough assessment, precise implant placement, and attachment of lifelike prosthetics. In cases of insufficient jawbone, bone grafts may be required to ensure implant stability. Implants provide a durable, aesthetically pleasing solution, enhancing oral health and confidence. They have a high success rate and can last a lifetime with proper care, making them a popular choice for tooth restoration.
Braces / Aligners / Cleft Lip / Palate
Braces and aligners are orthodontic devices used to correct dental misalignments. Braces employ metal brackets and wires, while aligners use clear, removable trays. Both gradually shift teeth into the proper position. Cleft lip and palate are congenital conditions involving a gap in the upper lip and/or roof of the mouth. Corrective surgery is typically performed in infancy, followed by specialized dental care. Orthodontic intervention may be necessary later to address associated dental issues. Early treatment ensures proper speech, facial development, and overall well-being.
Pyorrhea / Gums Treatment
Pyorrhea, or periodontitis, is an advanced gum disease characterized by inflammation, infection, and eventual destruction of the tissues supporting teeth. It leads to gum recession, tooth mobility, and, if untreated, tooth loss. Poor oral hygiene, smoking, and certain medical conditions contribute. Treatment involves deep cleaning, antibiotics, and, in severe cases, surgery.
Pediatric dentistry focuses on oral health care for children, from infancy through adolescence. Specialized pediatric dentists address the unique dental needs and challenges of young patients, promoting preventive care, early intervention, and education. Services include check-ups, cleanings, fluoride treatments, and guidance on proper oral hygiene.
Veneers / Bleaching / Cosmetic Dentistry
Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of dentistry that emphasizes enhancing the appearance of a person's teeth, gums, and smile. It encompasses various procedures like teeth whitening, veneers, dental implants, and orthodontic treatments. Cosmetic dentists prioritize aesthetics while ensuring functional and oral health benefits.
Biopsy / Oral Cancer Rehabilitation / Maxillofacial Prosthesis
Maxillofacial prosthesis refers to custom-made artificial replacements for facial structures lost due to trauma, surgery, or congenital conditions. These prostheses can include facial parts like eyes, ears, noses, or even entire sections of the jaw. They are meticulously crafted to restore function, appearance, and symmetry, improving the patient's quality of life and self-esteem. This specialized field combines elements of dentistry, engineering, and artistry.
Dental Trauma Management
Dental trauma management involves prompt and skillful response to injuries affecting teeth, gums, and surrounding structures. Immediate care is crucial to prevent further damage and preserve oral health. Procedures may include stabilizing loose teeth, repositioning displaced teeth, and addressing bleeding or soft tissue injuries. Follow-up care ensures proper healing and long-term stability.
Extractions / Root Canal Treatment / Fillings
Root canal treatment, or endodontic therapy, is a dental procedure used to repair and save a severely infected or damaged tooth. The process involves removing the infected or inflamed pulp (the soft tissue inside the tooth), cleaning and disinfecting the inside of the tooth, and then filling and sealing it. This procedure alleviates pain, prevents further infection, and allows the tooth to function normally. In most cases, a crown is placed over the treated tooth for added protection and strength. Root canal treatment can effectively restore a tooth's health and functionality.
Crown & Bridge / Dentures
Dentures are removable dental prosthetics designed to replace missing teeth and surrounding tissue. They come in full or partial forms, depending on the extent of tooth loss. Full dentures replace an entire arch of teeth, while partial dentures fill gaps in a partial tooth loss scenario. They improve aesthetics, aid in chewing, and support facial structure. Advances in materials and techniques have made modern dentures more comfortable and natural-looking.
Dentistry for Patients with Special needs under general Anaesthesia
It is a specialized approach catering to individuals who face challenges in receiving traditional dental care. This may include individuals with physical, cognitive, or behavioral impairments. Administering general anesthesia ensures the patient is unconscious and pain-free during the procedure, allowing comprehensive dental work to be performed safely and effectively. This approach promotes oral health and addresses dental issues for those who may otherwise struggle with routine dental visits. It requires a trained team of dental and medical professionals to ensure the patient's well-being throughout the procedure.
Laser dentistry employs focused light beams to perform a range of dental procedures. This technology minimizes discomfort, reduces bleeding, and speeds up recovery. It's used for tasks like cavity detection, soft tissue treatments, and teeth whitening. Laser dentistry is less invasive and often requires less anesthesia, making it a preferred option for many patients. Additionally, it sterilizes the treated area, lowering the risk of infection.

Dentistry is a branch of medicine that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of conditions related to the oral cavity and facial structures. Dentists are healthcare professionals who specialize in providing dental care and maintaining oral health.
Dentists offer a wide range of services, including routine dental check-ups and cleanings, fillings, root canals, extractions, dental implants, orthodontic treatments (braces), cosmetic procedures (like teeth whitening and veneers), and treatment of gum diseases.
Oral health is crucial for overall well-being. It impacts the ability to eat, speak, and smile comfortably. Additionally, oral health is linked to systemic health, with conditions like gum disease being associated with heart disease and diabetes.
It's recommended to visit a dentist regularly for routine check-ups and cleanings, typically every six months. Additionally, you should see a dentist if you experience tooth pain, bleeding gums, loose teeth, or any other oral health concerns.
Maintaining good oral hygiene involves brushing teeth at least twice a day, flossing daily, using mouthwash, and adopting a balanced diet low in sugary foods and beverages. Regular dental check-ups and cleanings are also essential for preventive care.
