Invisalign consists of a series of 18 to 30 custom-made, mouth guard-like clear plastic aligners. The aligners are removable and are replaced every 2 weeks.

It’s virtually undetectable, which means hardly anyone will know that you’re straightening your teeth.
A cleft means a split or separation; the palate is the roof of the mouth. A cleft palate or lip then is a split in the oral (mouth) structure.. A child can be born with both a cleft lip and cleft palate or a cleft in just one area.

Your temporomandibular joints, or TMJs, connect your lower jawbone to your skull. These joints get a lot of use throughout the day as you speak, chew, swallow, and yawn. Pain in and around these joints can be unpleasant and may even restrict movement. This can be due to improper arrangement and/or articulation of teeth .
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth, bridge or even a full denture. Dental implants are made of pure titanium, a material that is totally bio compatible (compatible with body tissues) and actually integrates with the surrounding bone and becomes part of the body. Dental implants are an effective, safe and predictable solution to the problems resulting from missing teeth. The best way of permanently replacing a tooth is to fit a dental implant, onto which a ceramic crown is then placed. Implants fuse to your jawbone, they provide stable support for artificial teeth. Main advantage of dental implant over conventional crown and bridge is with dental implants we can avoid cutting of adjacent healthy teeth.
A root canal is the treatment used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or is infected. During the root canal procedure, the inflamed or the infected pulp are removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and disinfected, then filled and sealed with material. After which the tooth is restored with a crown and filling for protection.. Without the treatment, the tissue surrounding the tooth will become infected and abscesses may form. A root canal can be completed in one sitting.
Smile designing is the process of improving the appearance of the smile through one or more cosmetic dentistry procedures, such as orthodontic treatment, dental veneers, composite bonding, tooth implants and teeth whitening.

The dental lasers in common use today are Erbium, Nd:YAG, Diode, and CO2. Each type of laser has specific biological effects and procedures associated with them. Lasers can be used for removal of renum(frenectomy), for gum surgeries(flap). The latest generation of dental lasers have revolutionized dentistry with treatments that are faster, more effective and more satisfying to patients and practitioners than ever before.
The Benefits of Dental Lasers Include:
There are various factors involved in the discolouration of teeth. They may be hereditary (natural tooth discolouration or ageing), pathological (tetracycline use during the period of tooth formation) or due to lifestyle factors (drinking coffee, tea, smoking, wine and antidepressants). Bleaching lightens teeth and helps to remove stains and discoloration. It is among the most popular cosmetic dental procedure performed because it can greatly improve how your teeth look along with improving the overall look of your face. But Bleaching is not a one-time procedure. It will need to be repeated from time to time if you want to maintain the brighter color.
These are wafer-thin tooth-coloured ceramic laminates that are attached onto the front side of teeth for a cosmetic improvement of discolored, worn, chipped or misaligned teeth .Veneers are less invasive than dental caps or crowns, Just a very thin layer of the visible tooth surfaces is shaved off for this. Your natural teeth can be better preserved. When the porcelain veneers are bonded to a tooth, the latter keeps its overall integrity. If you have healthy teeth but seek to beautify your smile, then porcelain veneers may be the solution you should consider. Additionally, they may be a great option if you want to hide stains that cannot be eliminated by whitening solutions. Veneers are an excellent dental treatment that can dramatically improve your teeth and give you a natural, beautiful smile.
Tooth jewellery: A simple way to add sparkle to your smile. People are becoming increasingly self conscious about their appearance and smile.

In the past, amalgam(metal colored) was the most commonly used material when creating fillings for patients.

The normal color of the gum tissue (gingiva) is pink, but excess deposits of melanin (melanin gingival hyper pigmentation) can create what seem to be black spots or patches on the gums, creating an aesthetic or cosmetic problem. Discoloration may also be caused by long term use of certain medications. A clinical assessment is carried out to customize the treatment to the patients needs. Color of gums(gingiva) may improve with laser dipigmentation procedures.
A crown is used to entirely cover a damaged tooth. Besides strengthening a damaged tooth it improves the appearance, shape or alignment as well as restores the function of the tooth. a bridge is recommended if you’re missing one or more teeth. Bridges are cemented to the natural teeth or implants surrounding the empty space A bridge stabilizes the bite of a patient who is missing one or more teeth. Dental bridges prevent the surrounding teeth from moving or shifting in the mouth. A missing tooth that is not replaced may cause surrounding teeth to become unstable and require removal, or make the teeth harder to clean, compromising oral health or change the shape of a face and diminish the beauty of a smile. Unlike partial dentures, bridges are permanent; patients cannot remove them.
An immediate denture is one that is placed immediately after having the remaining upper or lower teeth (or in some case both) removed. With this technique, the patient is able to have the esthetic benefit of having a denture placed at the time of extraction of the teeth, so that he or she can wear this prosthesis during the time that the extraction sites are healing. This way the patient will not have to go without teeth for any period of time.

We provide many preventive measures to keep your child’s teeth clean and healthy, including sealants and fluoride treatments.

PIT AND FISSURE SEALANTS-
Teeth have recesses on their biting surfaces; the back teeth have fissures (grooves) and some front teeth have cingulum pits. It is these pits and fissures which are most vulnerable to tooth decay, partly because food sticks in them and they are hard to clean areas. Dental sealants are materials placed in these pits and fissures to fill them in, creating a smooth surface that is easy to clean. Dental sealants are mainly used in children who are at higher risk of tooth decay.
Removal of wisdom Teeth (Disimpaction)
Wisdom teeth are another name for any one of four third molars found in the permanent dentition. These teeth are the last or most posterior teeth in the dental arch. Although most people have wisdom teeth, it is possible for some or all of the third molars to never develop. In many individuals, the wisdom teeth aren’t visible because they have become impacted (not normally erupted through the gums) under the gingival tissue/bone. This teeth may cause resorption of adjacent tooth, may cause severe pain and muscle spasm.
–Treatment of reduced mouth opening
Reduced mouth opening could be because of betel nut or tobacco chewing or it may be due to partial fusion of joints of jawbones or any interference in opening and closing movement of jaws. Treatment of reduced mouth opening depends upon the cause of reduced mouth opening. Can be cured with medication or it may need surgery for that.

Their purpose is to help prevent cavities and tooth decay by minimizing bacteria from forming on teeth and gums.
