Dental Implants simply put are replacement of tooth roots. Dental Implants provide a strong foundation for fixed (permanent) or removable replacement teeth that are made to match your natural teeth. Dental implants can be done in any age group.
We all have heard about Braces. They play a very important role in the correction of your teeth. Teeth correction may be required for both aesthetic reasons and functional reasons. Aesthetic reasons include crooked teeth , forwardly placed teeth , gummy smiles , crowding of teeth etc . Functional reasons include gum issues, bite issues, muscular issues etc.
Root Canal Treatment (RCT) is treatment of the “Root Canals “ of the tooth in which the decay/caries/cavity has reached the deepest layer of the tooth called “Pulp”. Root Canal is the area where Pulp is located in the Tooth.
“A Great Smile has the power to change your life “
Success rates of dental implants vary, depending on where in the jaw the implants are placed but, in general, dental implants have a success rate of up to 98%. With proper care (good oral hygiene), implants can last a lifetime.
The ideal candidate for a dental implant is in good general and oral health. Adequate bone in your jaw is needed to support the implant, and the best candidates have healthy gum tissues

Sometimes Braces treatment is carried out in adults to treat certain misalignments that cause muscular, joint or gum problems. They also can have the option of metal or ceramic braces.
These milk teeth preserve the space for the permanent teeth .If there is gap in between milk teeth, it is a good sign; this gap will be eventually utilized by the permanent teeth because they are larger in size. So do not worry if there is a gap in between the milk teeth.
Permanent teeth start developing at birth and develop just below the deciduous teeth .If cavities in deciduous teeth are not treated at the right time it can affect permanent teeth in 2 ways-
Firstly, untreated cavities can become deeper and deeper and transmit the infection to the underlying permanent tooth. This infection from the milk tooth can change the size, shape, colour, texture and time of eruption of a permanent tooth.
Secondly untreated cavities lead to early loss of deciduous teeth. Time when the milk tooth falls is important because they protect the space for the permanent tooth till the time it is ready to appear in the mouth. That is why all milk teeth do not fall at the same time, they fall at regular intervals. So if untreated cavities are left in milk teeth, they fall off early, once they fall off the spaces in between milk teeth are closed down by the neighbouring tooth. This closed space leads to abnormal positioning of permanent teeth leading to crooked and malpositioned permanent teeth, which not only affects the looks of the child but can also cause problems in speech and facial growth.
It is not painful, since the major portion of the treatment is done under local anaesthesia and medicines (painkillers) take care of the minor pain after the procedure. Sometimes even the painkillers are not required.
Root canal treatment can be completed in 1 or 2 appointments but if the infection is very severe it might require 2-3 appointments more. Patients’ cooperation is a must for early completion of the root canal treatment.
