Dentistry

Dentistry is a branch of medicine that is involved in the study, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases, disorders and conditions of the oral cavity, commonly in the dentition but also the oral mucosa, and of adjacent and related structures and tissues, particularly in the maxillofacial (jaw and facial) area.

We have a team of professional, competent and personable individuals who are committed to provide you with a positive dental experience. Our doctors cover almost every field of dental specialization such as

  • Orthodontics
  • Your face is the most expressive part of the entire body. And a badly proportioned face is a permanent scar to ones over all personality.
    A natural smile is one of the best expressions of the human face. However if this expression is hindered due to some crookedly positioned teeth or some deformity of the face it gives a bad overall performance of facial expression. This can act as a permanent hindrance to ones overall development which includes self-esteem.
    ORTHODONTICS is all about correcting crookedly positioned teeth and jaws and harmonizing a badly proportioned face.

  • Prosthodontics
  • Prosthodontics actually means the prosthetic replacement of any missing part of the face which includes the dentition as well as hard and soft tissue drape. This form of rehabilitation by crowns, fixed bridges and dentures aims at providing overall beautification of ones appearance. Smile designing forms an integral part of this speciality and involves the replacement of missing parts of the dentition, building up of lost tooth structure and providing the right kind of individualized smile.

  • Endodontics
  • Healthy teeth are a key to healthy body and mind. We need them for chewing, speaking clearly & flashing a bright heart warming smile. With advances in dentistry and oral care products, we are more likely to enjoy strong & healthy teeth for prolonged periods of life. Teeth, which were required to be salvaged in the early days by means of extraction are now being routinely saved by Root Canal Treatment. If we don’t sacrifice our other body parts, which are diseased, why should we extend such a sacrificing approach towards our teeth? Take the help of an Endodontist to save your teeth otherwise deemed for Extraction (Removal) chipped, broken discolored teeth are now a thing of past. An Endodontist will perform Cosmetic Treatment modality & will even design your smile. It is essential to undergo periodic dental check up and restore (fill) the teeth at early stages.
    Products and medicines are available which may aid in reducing the caries rate but this need to be monitored by the dentist at regular intervals.

  • Periodontics
  • Periodontics is the specialization of dentistry which deals with the preservation of health of the supporting structures of the teeth, i.e. the gums, bone and the fibers which connect these together. Almost all individuals are affected by diseases of these tissues at some point in their lives and they constitute a major cause of tooth loss in later life. The good news is that most of these diseases are preventable by the simple procedure of a six monthly dental and periodontal check up and regular professional cleansing of teeth in the dental office. Simply brushing and flossing teeth are not enough.
    Once the gums get infected, they start bleeding easily, especially while brushing and appear red and swollen. A visit to the dentist at this stage may restore complete health. However, any delay in seeking treatment may lead to irreversible damage and progress of the disease. Even at this later stage, the disease can be arrested by thorough cleansing of bacterial deposits through procedures known as ‘scaling and sub gingival root-planning’. In case loss of attachment between the tooth and its supporting structures leads to formation of a pocket, which may need surgical intervention for thorough removal of bacterial deposits and even to regenerate the lost structures.
    A loss of attachment also leads to recession of the gums which gives an unsightly appearance and ruins many a beautiful smile. A Periodontician has an answer even to this problem with the advent of periodontal plastic surgery procedures which can restore the beauty of your smile.

  • Pedodontics (Pediatric Dentistry)
  • A pedodontist (also known as a pediatric dentist) is a dentist that specializes in childhood dental health and care.

  • Maxillofacial surgery
  • Maxillofacial Surgeons are the specific experts on the diseases affecting the mouth, face and neck. As a result of their unique dual training they are best equipped to diagnose and treat symptoms, pathology, deformity and trauma affecting this complex area in a comprehensive manner.There is an extensive overlap of domain with plastic and ENT surgery. Thus it becomes prudent to create patient awareness about the purviews of the rich and growing speciality of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery.
