Invisalign is an excellent choice to address several dental health problems, such as Teeth misalignment Rotated teeth Overcrowded teeth Spaces between teeth Underbite, open bite, crossbite, and overbite During your consultation, our dentist can help you decide if Invisalign is the right treatment for you.

During the implantation procedure, our dentist places the implant into the socket of your missing tooth, embedding it into your jawbone. They use advanced X-Guide 3D imaging technology to ensure precise implant placement. Over the next 6-12 weeks, as the bone heals, it grows around your dental implant and anchors it securely in your jaw. When the implant bonds fully to the bone, our dentist attaches the abutment and places the prosthesis over the top. Just like individual teeth, dental implants can support removable dentures. Advanced treatment like replacing complete teeth (which are bad in prognosis) in the mouth with fixed implants and restoring all the oral functions in 72 hours also done.

Wisdom teeth extraction provides a variety of benefits, including: Easier biting and chewing Preventing damage to your jawbone and periodontal tissues Preventing damage to surrounding teeth Maintaining proper tooth alignment Undergoing wisdom teeth extraction can also reduce your risk of common oral health problems like cysts, tooth decay, and pericoronitis, a type of inflammation that affects partially erupted wisdom teeth.

Crowns and bridges could be metal, ceramic, porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, peek,PMMA or resin. We also uses zirconia, which is similar to porcelain in appearance. However, zirconia more closely resembles natural teeth and is more durable than porcelain, which reduces the risk you'll need further dental work to repair or replace your crowns in the future.

Tooth extractions are safe and usually well-tolerated. Following treatment, it’s normal to experience some tooth sensitivity, mild swelling, and discomfort. In the first 24 hours following your procedure, take your medications as prescribed and apply an ice pack to your cheek as necessary. Eat soft foods like mashed potatoes and scrambled eggs for the first few days. As your mouth begins to heal, slowly reintroduce other foods into your diet.

The main use of braces is to correct tooth placement and transform your smile. Braces come in various forms, including metal, ceramic, or plastic brackets that bond to your teeth. Braces consist of wires, brackets, and bands that work in harmony to gradually move your teeth into their correct position. Your dentist fixes the bands around your teeth, where they act as anchors. The brackets connect to the front of your teeth, while the wires pass through the brackets before fixing to the bands.

Following root canal treatment, it’s normal to experience some minor discomfort and tooth sensitivity. In the first 24 hours following treatment, avoid drinking with a straw and don’t brush or floss. Take your medications as prescribed and eat only soft foods like scrambled eggs and yogurt. You should feel back to normal within a few days.

Both conventional removable dentures and implant dentures require regular cleaning. Use the cleaning products your dentist recommends to keep your dentures in good condition. You can soak removable dentures in a sterilizing solution overnight, which also helps prevent drying out. You need to take them out every night so you can clean the dentures as well as the implants

Tooth sensitivity means experiencing pain or discomfort in your teeth from sweets, cold air, hot drinks, cold drinks, ice cream, or even when brushing or flossing. Several factors can contribute to tooth sensitivity including cavities, gum disease, a fractured tooth, or worn enamel. The good news is that it can be treated. Your Dentist would be happy to discuss options with you.

Fixed braces will initially hurt when you first get them for 2 or 3 days. The pain will dissipate after that. If the pain continues for more than a week, then contact your orthodontist. Your mouth will ache for about an hour after your braces are tightened. Removable braces just ache a little when you first get them.
