Dental Digital X-Rays ( Periapical, Bitewing )

show details of the upper and lower teeth in one area of the mouth. Each bite-wing shows a tooth from its crown (the exposed surface) to the level of the supporting bone. Bite-wing x-rays detect decay between teeth and changes in the thickness of bone caused by gum disease. Bite wing x-rays can also help determine the proper fit of a crown (a cap that completely encircles a tooth) or other restorations (eg, bridges). It can also see any wear or breakdown of dental fillings.

TMJ X-Rays

A new technique for imaging the temporomandibular joint with rotational panoramic radiography is explained and demonstrated with a tissue-equivalent phantom. In this technique the patient is displaced forward and laterally away from the side under examination. Radiographs made with the proposed technique show the temporomandibular joint with more sharpness and less distortion than do radiographs made with conventional panoramic techniques.

    Laser Composite Filling

    Laser dentistry has nothing to do with the type of filling material used in the tooth. The laser is used to remove the decay and replaces the drill. It is pain-free, noise-free, and as you know, completely drill-free dentistry. Many dentists are adding this innovative technology to their practices. Sometimes you would even need to be numbed for the procedure.

      Abcess Drainage Under L/A

      Treatment of an abscess is primarily through incision and drainage (I&D). Smaller abscesses (<5 mm) may resolve spontaneously with the application of warm compresses and antibiotic therapy. Larger abscesses will require I&D as a result of an increase in collection of pus, inflammation, and formation of the abscess cavity, which lessens the success of conservative measures. 

        Permanent Filling

        To treat a cavity your dentist will remove the decayed portion of the tooth and then “fill” the area on the tooth where the decayed material was removed.

        Fillings are also used to repair cracked or broken teeth and teeth that have been worn down from misuse (such as from nail-biting or tooth grinding).

          Digital OPG

          dentistry previously undreamed-of diagnostic and therapeutic options in the fields of surgery, prosthetics, orthodontics, and restorative dentistry.

          An Orthopantomogram (OPG), also known as an “orthopantogram” or “panorex”, is a panoramic scanning dental X-ray of the upper and lower jaw. It shows a three-dimensional view of a half-circle from ear to ear.

            Temporary Filling

            Sometimes your dental visit to receive a filling will require more than one appointment. When that happens, your dentist will fit you with a temporary filling so that your teeth will not shift and your bite will not be affected while you wait for your permanent restoration. When your tooth is being prepped for a dental crown, a temporary filling is placed in the crown opening to keep saliva out. Antibiotics may be prescribed if an infection is present and has spread beyond the end of the roots.

              Tooth Extraction

              Although permanent teeth were meant to last a lifetime, there are a number of reasons why tooth extraction may be needed. A very common reason involves a tooth that is too badly damaged, from trauma or decay, to be repaired

                Root Canal Treatment

                Root canal treatment is an often straightforward procedure to relieve dental pain and save your teeth. Patients typically need a root canal when there is inflammation or infection in the roots of a tooth. During root canal treatment, an endodontist who specializes in such treatment carefully removes the pulp inside the tooth, cleans, disinfects and shapes the root canals, and places a filling to seal the space.

                  Complete Scaling / Deep Cleaning

                  Scaling is a common dental procedure for patients with gum disease. This is a type of dental cleaning that reaches below the gumline to remove plaque buildup. The process of scaling and root planing the teeth is often referred to as a deep cleaning. This treatment goes beyond the general cleaning that you receive with your regular checkup and annual visit.

                    Gum Treatment For Bleeding

                    Harmful plaque bacteria can even lead to issues beyond gingivitis like weakened tooth enamel. The cleaning performed twice a year at your dentist’s office will remove plaque and tartar that can’t be removed at home. This will help prevent bleeding gums and keep your mouth healthy. You should visit your dentist for a professional cleaning and dental exam at least twice in a year. This can help prevent early gum disease from progressing into more serious gum disease.

                      Surgery of Impacted Wisdom Tooth

                      While sometimes the teeth grow into a jaw that is large enough to accommodate them, most people do not have ample room for their wisdom teeth, causing impacted wisdom teeth. That’s because most of us have room for approximately 28 teeth, which is how many you have before your wisdom teeth come in Wisdom Teeth. While surgery may sound scary, it’s very common and often less painful than the discomfort associated with impacted wisdom teeth. In fact, approximately 85 percent of wisdom teeth will eventually need to be removed.

                        fissure sealant for child

                        Fissure sealants are recommended for filling the adult or primary teeth of children who have a high risk of developing cavities. And even children who brush and floss regularly can be considered high risk, depending for example on the amount of fluoride they consume and the shape of their teeth (particularly the groovy parts).

                          Core Buildup with Post Pins

                          A Core Buildup is used when a fracture or decay causes a portion of a tooth to break off, and in some cases, there’s simply not enough tooth left to place a crown. A Core Buildup will replace the missing portion and save the tooth by building it up with Core Buildup Resin materials. Once the tooth is built up, we can place a crown to preserve the tooth for years to come. Sometimes a Core Buildup is necessary after Root Canal Treatment has been done on a tooth. Once again this procedure is required to build up the material of the tooth so that a crown can be placed.

                            Veneering in Porcelain

                            Dental veneers (sometimes called porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates) are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size, or length.

                              invisalign

                              Invisalign is a type of orthodontic treatment that helps to straighten teeth without the use of the typical metal braces. Invisalign has quickly revolutionized the orthodontics world. Now patients have a different option besides ugly metal brackets. Invisalign involves wearing a series of custom-made clear plastic aligners that help shift your teeth into the proper position.

                                oral cyst treatment

                                A cyst is a sac of tissue that has either fluid or soft material inside it. Cysts can form in a wide range of tissues including in the face and mouth (including the jaws). Some can form next to or around teeth, which are called dental cysts. Cysts are a reaction of the body to a condition and are usually relatively slow growing. They can be sterile or become infected.

                                  Paeds / Metal Crown

                                  Stainless steel crowns have been used by dentists since the late 1940’s. The blend of iron, carbon, chromium and other metals that make up stainless steel prevents corrosion otherwise exacerbated by saliva. They are very durable, but do not have a natural tooth color and are primarily used on molar teeth for aesthetic reasons.

                                    OPG X-ray

                                    An OPG is a panoramic or wide view x-ray of the lower face, which displays all the teeth of the upper and lower jaw on a single film.  It demonstrates the number, position and growth of all the teeth including those that have not yet surfaced or erupted. It is different from the small close up x-rays dentists take of individual teeth. An OPG may also reveal problems with the jawbone and the joint which connects the jawbone to the head, called the Temporomandibular joint or TMJ. An OPG may be requested for the planning of orthodontic treatment, for assessment of wisdom teeth or for a general overview of the teeth and the bone which supports the teeth.

                                      Dentures

                                      A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. Two types of dentures are available — complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.

                                        Porcelain Crown

                                        Porcelain-fused to metal – This crown provides a stronger bond than regular porcelain because it is connected to a metal structure. It’s also extremely durable.

                                          Polishing

                                          When layers of plaque build-up on teeth, they harden and form a tough mineral substance called tartar. Bacteria can live beneath tartar and cause dental diseases and dental hygienists remove tartar in a procedure called scaling. After scraping off the hard tartar with special instruments, the hygienist then polishes the teeth. Dental polishing removes surface stains on teeth and leaves them shiny and smooth, putting the finishing touches on a protective dental treatment.

                                            Pin Retained Filling

                                            Pins are tiny threaded screws that are placed about ½ millimeter into dentin. A pilot hole ever so slightly smaller than the pin is drilled into the tooth, then the pin is screwed into place. An amalgam (metal) or composite (tooth-colored) filling is then placed over the top. The pin is only used for retaining the filling on the tooth. It does not reinforce like a rebar does with concrete. Pins have been known to cause microcracks in the dentin, however, I have not seen a fracture of the underlying tooth structure that was severe enough to lose the tooth that was caused by the pin alone.

                                              Zirconium Special Crown​

                                              Zirconia is a metal classified as a member of the titanium family and is mined around the world. It is found in dinnerware and electrical fixtures among other products. It’s known for its durability, making it an ideal product to use in dental crowns, especially posterior crowns that require a lot of strength for chewing and grinding food

                                                Custom Porcelain Crown

                                                Custom Porcelain Crown is a method used by thousands of dentists worldwide not only to replace these fillings, but also to restore any tooth that is decayed, weakened, broken, etc. to its natural strength and beauty. Better yet, it’s done with all-ceramic materials that are tooth colored in a single appointment!

                                                  Orthodontic Treatment

                                                  Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that corrects teeth and jaws that are positioned improperly. Crooked teeth and teeth that do not fit together correctly are harder to keep clean, are at risk of being lost early due to tooth decay and periodontal disease, and cause extra stress on the chewing muscles that can lead to headaches, TMJ syndrome and neck, shoulder and back pain. Teeth that are crooked or not in the right place can also detract from one’s appearance.

                                                    Ortho Fixed Appliances

                                                    Fixed orthodontic appliances are the most commonly used appliances for orthodontic treatment in use today. As the name suggests they are bonded to the teeth and are not removable by the patients.The purpose of this video is to acquaint the dental student with the basic features of orthodontic appliances and some of the more commonly encountered auxiliaries

                                                    Retainers

                                                    Braces create a beautiful smile, but the retainer maintains it while encouraging better oral hygiene long after its use goes away. Although retainers for teeth are most commonly used to hold straight teeth in place after braces, the advantages for your kids in wearing their retainers correctly – per their orthodontist’s orders

                                                    Functional Appliances Braces

                                                    A functional appliance is a type of brace to correct a “Class II” problem; Class II problems are a group of bite problems where the top teeth bite in front of the lower teeth. Functional appliances may be either fixed or removable. Removable functional appliances are most popular in the U.K. The more common removable functional appliances are made from separate upper and lower parts, which interlock placing the lower jaw in a more advanced position. Other types of functional appliance are made from just one piece, although these may adapt slightly less well to the teeth.
