We strictly use tooth coloured materials. We have a silver-free policy and thus, silver fillings are neither performed, nor suggested. Silver metal contains mercury, which is reported in medical literature to be hazardous to health. We certainly don’t want hazardous agents in our patients’ mouth.
You should get a filling done at the earliest so that decay process can be arrested at the start & you are saved of further pain and trouble.
What are dental fillings?
A dental filling is a way to restore a damaged tooth back to its normal shape and function by filling in the cavity with a filling material.
Why should I get a filling done?
Have you ever been to a dentist for a professional cleaning of your teeth?
If not its high time you get your teeth cleaned.
Scaling is the removal of the hard deposits & stains around your teeth. Polishing is smoothening the tooth surfaces with a polishing paste & rotating brush.
Why is scaling necessary?
These hard deposits form over time & cannot be removed with brushing. They contain bacteria which release acidic by-products. They in turn irritate and inflame the gums, causing bone loss and loss of teeth. Scaling is done in 1 or 2 visits depending upon the degree of deposits and stains on your teeth.
When should you get scaling done for yourself?
How often should you get it done?
We recommend visiting the dentist once in 6 months for scaling. Routine oral prophylaxis will strengthen your gums thereby prolonging the longevity of your teeth.
Will my teeth get layered off everytime I undergo scaling?
No, not at all. We use modern piezoelectric devices which does not harm your teeth at all.
Do the teeth start moving after cleaning?
It’s a myth. In fact, your gums get firmer around your teeth making them stronger than before.
Will I develop sensitivity after scaling?
Transient, bearable sensitivity following scaling for a few days is normal. We also aid patients to counter this sensitivity with professional toothpastes with high fluoride content. Usually this does not even last for more than a few days.
We will do more than just cleaning your teeth; we will check the soft tissue and screen for oral cancer, root canal and other potential problems.
SURGICAL EXTRACTIONS OF IMPACTED TEETH
Wisdom teeth are the large molars that emerge at the very back of your mouth, usually between the ages of 17 and 24. Some people never develop their wisdom teeth, but others have up to four (one in each corner of your mouth). A lot of the time wisdom teeth appear with little trouble, however if there is not enough space for the teeth to grow they can become wedged in or ‘impacted.’
There is a space constraint for eruption of the “wisdom teeth” which not only creates an imbalance in position of other teeth but also creates other issues like infections. So when not erupted into its proper position, a wisdom tooth is best removed. .
Problems associated with Wisdom Teeth
Wisdom teeth that are healthy and in the right position usually don’t cause problems. You may have a problem if any of the following occur:
