Orthodontics is method of repositioning the teeth and jaws to a proper natural position. Some people have crooked teeth arrangement which might look very odd in the way spoiling their beauty. Also crooked teeth are not easy to clean which leads to teeth decay and other infections. Chewing of food with this arrangement gives more strain to jaw muscle which in later stage becomes an irritant.

The name indicates the department. It deals with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of oral care of children from infancy to teen age. Pediatric dentistry is considered vital because many developmental stages of teeth happen for these age groups.
At first infancy are grown with temporary teeth which start falling at age of 7. From there on permanent teeth start to grow. It is at this period special care must be taken to protect from tooth decaying and other oral disease which may cause life time complications.
Conservative dentistry and endodontics
Conservative dentistry deals with the conservation of teeth. The treatment procedure includes repair and replacement of lost and defective dental tissues of particular teeth. Comprehensive reminerizalition of carious teeth is done as a part of restoration treatment. Endodontics is a traditional and most widely adopted method by the conservative dentistry.
Endodontics is a study and treatment of dental pulp (containing nerves, arterioles, venules, lymphatic tissue, and fibrous tissue). The most common therapy of endodontics are root canal therapy. Endodontic surgery may be undergone in some cases. The surgery can be used to locate small fractures or hidden canals more accurately than x-ray. The surgery also helps in removing too much calcium deposits from the root canal and damaged root surfaces surrounding the bone can also be treated.
It is the branch which deals with study and diagnosis of the supporting structure of the teeth and also disease affecting them. Comprehensive treatment of oral inflammation is also provided. It also includes treating other periodontal issues such as gum disease. Other treatment includes scaling, root planning (infected surface of the root is cleaned) or root debridement (in which damaged tissue is removed).
Other facilities of this department include
Laser dentistry is one of the techniques in treating oral diseases. The main advantage of laser is that it sends a sharp focus on the affected region alone, thereby sparing the nearby healthy tissues. We have well qualified physicians who have incorporated the nuances of the technology. We use laser to treat diseases like
Tooth decay, where the decay within the tooth is removed and the surrounding enamel region is made ready to be filled. Laser is also used to harden the filling.
Gum disease, in which laser is used to reshape the gums and kills bacteria during the performances of root canal procedures.
Biopsy or lesion removal, where laser is used to collect sample tissues (a biopsy technique) for examination of cancer. It is also used to remove lesions which cause a severe pain called canker sores.
Teeth whitening, in which laser is used to restore the whitening look of the teeth, by activating the peroxide bleaching solution applied on the surface of the teeth.
Laser dentistry is a fast growing technology which requires no invasive procedures, no bleeding or stitches and the wounds heels faster and restores the tissue
It is the next higher step to the tradition form of dentistry. This aesthetic dentistry is any dental work which improves the appearance of the teeth. The techniques include whitening, straightening, reshape and repairing of teeth to improve the beauty of smile which in turn improves the overall beauty.

Smile designing is a technique to improve the beauty of smile. It is obvious that all people have the tendency to have a beautiful and pleasing smile. It is the teeth and lips which pave the way for it. Cosmetic dentistry and its techniques are involved in smile designing process. Some of the cosmetic dentistry techniques implemented in smile designing are
Tooth color is the foremost of the procedures. The color of teeth changes as time passes by which is more in people addicted to smoking, alcohol consumption and over intake of tea and coffee. Their natural and original white color is restored by filling silver and amalgam fillings and the stained color is removed. White and bright teeth tend your smile to look young. Our experts are well versed in matching the white color and its brightness according to the skin tone.
Alignment and spacing is done for teeth that crooked, overlapping and have gaps between them. They are aligned in such a way that they are neatly arranged and spaced with no gaps and all looks even when smiled.
Missing teeth affects the appearance of the smile. It looks odd whenever the person smiles. Also food consumption with missing teeth may lead to tooth decay. Restoring is done by tooth implants, bridges and partial dentures. Broken teeth are also repaired by placing crowns over it which looks like a full tooth.

Minor oral surgery
As the name suggests, minor surgeries are small surgeries such as removal of wisdom teeth, impacted teeth and broken teeth which is carried out by oral surgeons only. The operation is performed under local anesthetic conditions only. These surgeries require very less time and it doesn’t need hospital stay.
Microscopic endodontics is an advanced and most successful in endodontic surgical techniques. With this the affected area is magnified and even small structures not visible clearly through naked eye can be treated well. The patient feels a negligible amount of pain only with this method and proves a long term effects.
Each tooth consists of two to three roots with each having three root canals attached to it. The root canals are very thin and hair like structure which when untreated lead to severe consequences. The infection in root canal occurs as a result of tooth decay. With the help of microscopic treatment these very small and thin damaged structures can also be treated effectively. The physician takes a look of the insights through the microscope which gives him a magnified view for better surgical procedures. The regions of inflammation are viewed effectively through a three dimensional volume tomography (DVT).
Implant dentistry is implanting the root on which the crown rests. The visible structure is called crown and the structure which is hidden inside that extends till the jaw bone is called as root. The root plays the vital part in holding the crown. Here implantation of root is done by a material called as titanium which is bio compatible and fuses into the jaw bone giving strength to the crown. This process of implanting titanium root to fuse into the jaw bone is called as osseointegration.
Invisible orthodontics replaced the traditional orthodontic methods of wearing braces with brackets and wires which gives an odd look when smiled. This method consists of strong and rigid invisible braces that are least visible. However these can be applied only to adults and older teen aged people where as children and young teens cannot be applied with this method. Only traditional braces will suit them.
These aligners are manufactured with advanced computer technology to detect tooth movement and gradually straighten them. Invisible orthodontics can be used to clear following defects
- Overbite or overjet
- Crowded or widely spaced teeth
- Overlapping and crooked teeth.
