Peridontal disease is an infection affecting the gums, bone and other supporting tissues of the teeth. It is caused by plaque, which is a sticky film of bacteria that forms constantly on all our teeth. Most of us have a less serous form of reversible inflammation called GINGIVITIS from time to time. Those who have the more severe form called PERIODONTITIS, are at greater risk of losing teeth as they become loose, fall out or have to be removed by the dentist.



Prosthodontics is the dental specialty focusing on the restoration and replacement of missing teeth. Prosthodontists collaborate with general dentists, specialists and other health care professionals to develop solutions to complex restorative dentistry. Prosthodontists are at the forefront of dental implantology, concentrating on the preservation of a healthy mouth, the creation of tooth replacements and dynamic smiles. One of the nine recognized dental specialties, prosthodontists receive rigorous training and experience, which entails three years of specialized training in an American Dental Association (ADA) accredited graduate education program.


Dental Implants

Implants are the modern way to replace missing teeth. The implant, which is made of titanium, is fitted in bone where the tooth root would normally be. When fully integrated to the bone, a post (or abutment) is attached to the implant and a crown, bridge or denture is then placed over the abutment to replace the missing tooth or teeth.


Dental hygiene

A registered dental hygienist (RDH) is a licensed dental professional who specializes in preventive oral health, typically focusing on techniques in oral hygiene. Local dental regulations determine the scope of practice of dental hygienists. In most jurisdictions, hygienists work for a dentist, and some are licensed to administer local anesthesia. Common procedures performed by hygienists include cleanings known as prophylaxis, scaling and root planing for patients with periodontal disease, taking of prescribed radiographs, dental sealants, administration of fluoride, and providing instructions for proper oral hygiene and care.

Endodontics is the branch of dentistry concerned with diseases of the human dental pulp and the surrounding tissues. The term 'root canal treatment' refers to the most common treatment rendered by an endodontist, which is the procedure of cleaning diseased or infected tissue from inside the tooth followed by the placement of a hermetic seal or three-dimensional dental filling in the space (root canal) formerly occupied by this tissue. Using a local anesthetic, there is little or no discomfort to the procedure.



Teeth are important for chewing food properly, for good appearance and for proper speech. If any one or more of these functions of teeth are adversely affected due to irregular teeth and/or jaws one would need orthodontic treatment. When teeth of the upper and the lower jaws do not meet properly with each other grinding of food properly is impaired. This may cause indigestion and related health problems. When teeth are projecting out, lips are not closing normally, or teeth are crowded and are spoiling the smile one needs orthodontic treatment for esthetic reasons.
