Orthodontic treatment corrects teeth and jaw alignment problems and involves the design and use of appliances such as braces, retainers, aligners, elastics, headgears and pre orthodontic trainers . If you have crowded or overlapping teeth, it makes them harder to clean which increases your chances of tooth decay, gum disease, and eventual tooth loss. With orthodontic treatment, you can improve the health and esthetics of your teeth.
Ceramic brackets are available for those who are concerned about the metal braces during treatment

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery
Oral and maxillofacial surgeries are special areas of dentistry concerned with the diagnosis and surgical treatment of congenital or acquired diseases; dysfunction, defects, or injuries of the mouth, jaws, face, neck, and associated regions.
Some of these issues are:
Teeth that cannot be saved bay any of the procedures are removed under local anesthesia
The wisdom teeth, or third molars, are the most frequently impacted teeth due to lack of space in the jaw. In most cases, wisdom teeth that do not erupt into proper alignment should be extracted.
Oral surgery can correct cases where the jaw bones are under- or overdeveloped. Cases where the upper jaw grows either too much or too little and/or the lower jaw grows too much or too little can be surgically corrected and realigned.
Scaling/ Cleaning and Treatment for Gum diseases (Periodontics)
Periodontics is that specialty of dentistry that encompasses the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the supporting and surrounding tissues of the teeth.
Professional dental cleanings are necessary at least twice each year to maintain good oral health. Many people require a routine cleaning three or four times a year due to buildup of plaque and tartar.
Scaling is done using ultrasonic/piezo electric scalers which removes the deposits by ultrasonic vibrations of the instrument tip
Periodontal diseases range from simple gum inflammation to serious diseases that result in major damage to the soft tissue and bone that support the teeth. In the worst cases, teeth are lost.
Gum disease is a threat to your oral health. Research also points to possible health effects of periodontal diseases that go well beyond your mouth.
Whether it is stopped, slowed, or gets worse depends on how well you care for your teeth and gums every day.
Teeth Whitening procedures can dramatically brighten your smile. This is a very popular procedure for anyone who wants to get a whiter, more youthful appearance to their teeth. It is simple to do and requires only one or two visits. Usually two techniques are followed
Self applied using a custom made tray, which usually need 2-5 applications. The patient is supplied with the home bleaching kit and trained to use it themselves. Finally a review is done.
Tooth colored Composite resin restorations or ‘Tooth colored fillings’ are the alternative to the silver/mercury fillings that we are all familiar with. They are composed of a particle filled resin that is very similar to the hardness and consistency of tooth structure. Composite resins can be used to fill new cavities or replace worn out old fillings. The resins are available in many shades so that they can match your own tooth color. They are ‘cured’ or hardened with a special light so that they are fully functional immediately after being placed.
Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain bonded directly to your teeth. Porcelain veneers can take years off your appearance by changing the shape, contour and color of your teeth. The ‘Extreme Makeover’ effect can happen in as few as two visits.
