Filling of Broken Teeth and Decayed Teeth
Amalgam A filling is a replacement of lost tooth material. It may have been due to decay (bacteria which destroys the teeth with its acid) or fracture (a force that has broken the tooth) .The convensional "silver" filling - which is avoided now due to the potential environmental pollution due to the mercury in the filling.
Tooth Coloured Fillings (Composite Fillings)
The "composite" resin fillings that are made to match the tooth colour perfectly. They are used to re-shape and restore broken teeth, cavities even in the front teeth so that they look perfectly natural.
Deep fillings (GIC fillings)

ROOT CANAL TREATMENT
sterilization of root canals.
Why is the Root Canal performed?The pulp is the living tissue of the tooth with blood supply and nerve supply. Once the dental caries (decay ) involves the pulp, the pulp gets infected causing pain. The aim of the root canal treatment is to remove the infected pulp. This is done by removing the infected pulp with files in the pulp chamber and cleaning and shaping the root canals and sealing the canal with a filling material.

THE STORY OF ROOT CANAL THERAPY.Each tooth has a soft tissue – the pulp which nourishes the tooth. Because of deep decay, injury, or gum disease, the pulp tissue in your tooth has become inflamed or infected. In any other part of your body, if a similar tissue becomes diseased, the body merely throws it off and forms new tissue. However, a tooth is a unique and different. Because the infected soft tissue (pulp) within the tooth is totally encased within hard tissue, it is the role of the dentist to remove the soft tissue located in the root canals, cleanse the area, and finally fill the canals with a special material so that bacteria cannot re-enter the tooth to cause another infection. When the endodontic treatment is complete, the tooth is by no means "dead". It receives quite adequate support from the surrounding tissues and may be expected to last as long as any other natural tooth.

Why do we need braces or orthodontic appliances?Not everyone is gifted with a Hollywood smile.For some the size of the jaw is larger than the teeth size â€“ resulting in teeth with spaces.For those whom the jaw size is smaller, the teeth happen to be crowded or overlapping.. This also occurs due to childhood decay which might have resulted in loss of space.For some with mouth breathing habits (due to deviated nasal septum or chronic allergies) â€“ the face seems to be long For some the teeth are forwardly placed â€“ it may have been a result of habits like thumb sucking or tongue thrusting.Â They may not be able to close their lips fully. This may also result in an open bite where the front teeth do not meet together.Whatever the problem, it can be corrected and set right through some appliances and braces.
