Dental Implants are artificial devices used to replace missing teeth. Implants come in many different sizes and shapes and they are placed into the bone to act as support for a prosthetic crown.

This branch deals with tooth decay and its management. Initial tooth decay is confined only to the enamel (outer most layers) and in cases where the decay involves the dentin (middle layer), the tooth can be filled. However, in cases where the decay involves the pulp a regular filling will not suffice. In such cases only two options remain. Either the tooth has to extracted or a root canal filling needs to be done.
Nothing is as good as a natural tooth! And sometimes your natural tooth may need endodontic (root canal) treatment for it to remain a healthy part of your mouth. Expert endodontic services are carried out in our Center. They have a wide experience in this regard.

In order to successfully place implants you need sufficient bone. In certain situations dentist need to perform specific procedures in order to create bone volume. One such procedure is sinus lift.
Some of the roots of the natural upper teeth extend up into the maxillary sinus. When these upper teeth are removed, there is often just an egg shell thin wall of bone separating the maxillary sinus and the mouth. Dental implants need bone to hold them in place so when the sinus wall is very thin, it is impossible to place dental implants in this bone.
There is a solution called a sinus graft or sinus lift graft. The dental implant surgeon enters the sinus from the side above where the upper teeth used to be. The sinus membrane is then lifted upward and donor bone is inserted into the floor of the sinus. After several months of healing, the bone becomes part of the patient's jaw and dental implants can be inserted and stabilized in this new sinus bone.
The sinus graft makes it possible for many patients to have dental implants when years ago there was no other option other than wearing loose denture.
The Wisdom tooth, (also called Third Molar) usually do not push through the gums until the late teens or twenties. Wisdom teeth are usually the last teeth to come through the gums.
Wisdom teeth removal surgery or impacted tooth extraction may need to be considered before construction of dentures. Sometimes the wisdom teeth erupt beneath the denture and that can cause severe irritation and infection. Most of the time is preferable to control the infection with antibiotics and oral hygiene first. The tooth extraction of the opposing wisdom tooth is also sometimes advised but that needs to be decided during the consultation with the dental surgeon or the oral surgeon.
Wisdom teeth removal surgery is not something people look forward to, but modern surgical and anaesthetic techniques as used recently have now combined to make wisdom teeth removal surgery a much more acceptable procedure than in the past.
