Cleaning

Cleaning involves removal of plaque and calculus. Gingivitis is a mild form of periodontal disease and results in the inflammation of the gums. Severe gum problems result in bone loss of varying degrees and needs surgical removal of plaque and calculus.

 

Fillings

Cavities or decay occurs when enamel and dentin in some instances get demineralized and infected due to bacteria. Filling is a procedure in which this infected and demineralized part of the tooth/teeth is removed and the space filled with a choice of filling material.

 

Sealants

Sealants are fillings that are placed on the chewing surfaces of permanent teeth to protect the grooves, pits and fissures from forming cavities. The procedure involved is simple, does not need anesthetics and drilling

 

Crowns

Crowns strengthen and protect a weak tooth structure and improves the appearance of your teeth. Crowns can be made from different materials which include the full porcelain crown, the porcelain fused-to-metal crown and the all-metal crown.

 

Root Canals

Spontaneous pain and throbbing, sensitivity to hot and cold foods, severe decay or an injury that crates an abscess (infection) in the bone necessitates removal of the infected or irritated nerve tissue that lies within the root of the tooth. It is this infected pulp tissue that causes an eventual abscess The procedure involves removing the infected pulp, cleaning and sealing of the root canal with a sterile, plastic material, called gutta percha This is done in order to prevent possible future infection. Root canals usually are followed up with crowns to protect the tooth from fracture

 

Extractions

One of the main goals of modern dentistry is the prevention of tooth loss. All possible measures should be taken to preserve and maintain your teeth because the loss of a single tooth can have a major impact upon your dental health and appearance. However, it is still sometimes necessary to remove a tooth. Teeth need to be extracted when one or more of the following conditions exist. • Severe Decay • Advanced periodontal disease • Infection or abscess • Orthodontic correction • Malpositioned teeth • Fractured teeth or roots • Impacted teeth
