A small cavity in the tooth suggests a decay that needs to be filled to prevent further damage to the tooth structure. At Toothzone, utmost care and gentle handling helps your teeth to get back to its function.
An extended decay, involves the pulp chamber (the heart of the tooth) henceforth causing pain and sometimes swelling.
The damaged pulp is extirpated; the canals are cleaned and filled to restore the tooth.
A crown after a root canal treatment is utmost necessary (negligible only in certain cases where tooth structure is unperturbed) to prevent fracture of the tooth.
Any tooth (excepting the wisdom teeth) that is removed needs to be replaced. The reason behind, is that the adjacent and opposing teeth tend to migrate towards the new space. To avoid this and to increase the masticatory efficiency, teeth extracted have to be replaced.
A bridge is a fixed replacement that involves mild grinding of the adjacent teeth on either side of the extracted tooth and crowns are fabricated and cemented on the natural teeth.
We at Toothzone offer the latest advancement in the field of dentistry in replacing lost teeth.
Implants are titanium screws that are fixed at the extracted site along with the artificial tooth. These screws act as the root of a tooth thereby preventing bone loss at the extracted site and dispersing the masticatory force to the bone. Implant placement is painless, takes less time and is a lifelong substitute to the natural tooth.
Here at Toothzone, as the director himself is an orthodontist, we are updated with the latest treatments in treating malaligned teeth.
Children, right from the tender age of 7 years are advised to have an orthodontic screening check up. This helps in detecting any jaw abnormalities, crowding or spacing of teeth in future, any detrimental habits like thumb sucking, lip/nail biting, tongue thrusting and mouth breathing.
Early detection and intervention may lessen or even at times avoid the use of clip (braces) in future.
Braces: There are many varieties and the right one for you will be decide by the orthodontist.
Invisalign: These are custom made individual clear trays that are used by the patient in a sequence that helps correct malocclusion without braces. This is of immense help to people with active social life. Added advantage is the removal of this when food/liquid is consumed. This can be used in cases of minor malocclusion.
A mobile tooth does not always indicate its removal. A thorough cleaning of gums and thus restoring gum health will help retain a mobile tooth (bone loss should also be taken into consideration). Scaling and polishing session once in 6 months is highly recommended to ensure your gum health as well as to detect any vital decay and any other lesions.
We take our time to listen to your dental complaint, check your oral cavity thoroughly to ensure any precancerous/cancerous lesions, due to increasing statistics in cancer. We also advice you on lifestyle changes (smoking, pan/tobacco chewing etc) to ensure you a good general health.
Due to evolutionary changes human jaw size has become much smaller than what it was in earlier days. This causes a lack of space, preventing the wisdom tooth, erupting between 18-25 years to erupt completely. The partial eruption may cause food impaction in between the gums and tooth and result in pain.
If the tooth is found to be completely impacted in the bone, a minor surgical procedure at the dental chair is required to remove the tooth. The procedure is relatively simple done in 30-45 minutes and under local anaesthetics.
Any malfigured, eroded tooth (anterior) can be cosmetically treated by veneers. These are thin nail like shells that are pasted on to the disfigured tooth thus camouflaging it. Veneer placement requires tooth structure and henceforth veneers/crowns has to be decide by the dentist.
