Oral and Maxillofacial surgeries

Oral & Maxillofacial surgery (OMS) specializes in treating many diseases, injuries and defects in the head, neck, face, jaws and the hard and soft tissues of the Oral (mouth) and Maxillofacial (jaws and face) region. It is an internationally recognized surgical specialty.


An Epicectomy is an endodontic surgical procedure that is done to take off the tip of the tooth root, as well as the infected tissue that surrounds the area.Epicetomy can take between 1-2 hours.Dentist will numb the area and the tooth before surgery. This procedure is carried out under local anesthesia but occasionally. The Epicetomy is usually undertaken by your dentist or dental surgeon when a regular root canal procedure fails to remove all the infection in the affected area, especially when the patient experiences severe discomfort even after the root canal procedure.

Root Canal Treatments

A root canal is a treatment used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or becomes infected.When a tooth's nerve tissue or pulp is damaged, it breaks down and bacteria begin to multiply within the pulp chamber. The bacteria and other decayed debris can cause an infection or abscessed tooth During a root canal procedure, the nerve and pulp are removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed. Without treatment, the tissue surrounding the tooth will become infected and abscesses may form.

"Root canal" is the term used to describe the natural cavity within the center of the tooth. The pulp or pulp chamber is the soft area within the root canal. The tooth's nerve lies within the root canal.

Ortho treatments

Ortho treatments corrects teeth and jaws that are positioned improperly. Crooked teeth and teeth that do not fit together correctly are harder to keep clean, are at risk of being lost early due to tooth decay and periodontal disease, and cause extra stress on the chewing muscles that can lead to headaches, TMJ syndrome and neck, shoulder and back pain. Teeth that are crooked or not in the right place can also detract from one's appearance.

The benefits of orthodontic treatment include a healthier mouth, a more pleasing appearance, and teeth that are more likely to last a lifetime.


A dental implant is a titanium metal rod which is placed into the jawbone and it is used to replace one or more missing teeth. The implant is essentially a substitute for a natural root which supports a fixture known as an abutment that is like a post extending into the mouth through the gum. A crown or bridge is fixed onto the abutment with a special cement or screws. It is comprised of three separate components although in reality most people refer to the rod, abutment and crown as an implant. The crown or bridge is fixed on permanently unlike dentures which need to be taken out daily. An over-denture is a denture that is secured by implants to improve the retention so it stays in a lot better but it is not fixed in permanently.

Flap Surgery

Flap surgery is a type of gum procedure. The gums are separated from the teeth and folded back temporarily. This allows a dentist to reach the root of the tooth and the bone.Flap surgery is used to treat gum disease (periodontitis). It may be recommended for people with moderate or advanced periodontitis. Usually, a treatment that doesn't involve surgery is done first. This is called scaling and root planing. If this treatment does not eliminate the gum infection, gingival flap surgery may be used. It also may be done along with another procedure known as osseous (bone) surgery.

Teeth Whitening

Tooth whitening can be a very effective way of lightening the natural colour of your teeth without removing any of the tooth surface. It cannot make a complete colour change, but it may lighten the existing shade.It is quick, safe and simple to do and yet it can completely transform your smile. It is often combined with composite bonding as part of a smile makeover providing a quick, non invasive and affordable way to reverse the appearance of discoloured, chipped or worn teeth restoring a youthful appearance.

Porcelain laminate veneers

Veneer is a layer of material placed over a tooth, either to improve the aesthetics of a tooth or to protect the tooth's surface from damage. There are two main types of material used to fabricate a veneer: composite and dental porcelain. A composite veneer may be directly placed (built-up in the mouth), or indirectly fabricated by a dental technician in a dental lab, and later bonded to the tooth, typically using a resin cement such as Panavia. In contrast, a porcelain veneer may only be indirectly fabricated. Laminate veneer is a thin layer that covers only the surface of the tooth and generally used for aesthetic purposes.Small gaps between teeth could be closed with veneers by making the teeth a better shape. Sometimes these gaps are near the gum where the gum has pulled back (receded).

Maryland bridges

A Maryland bridge consists of a metal framework with a porcelain tooth baked onto the front of the framework. The framework then ends up as a false tooth with two metal wings on the side. These metal wings are prepared to have a porous surface so that they can receive a bonding agent, and then the wings are bonded to the back sides of the teeth on either side of the missing tooth.

Bridges are used for replacing missing teeth, for people who don't want a denture and usually only have one or two teeth missing. They are usually made by crowning the teeth on either side of the gap and joining the two crowns together by attaching a false tooth is the middle. They are fixed in the same way as crowns.

Another option is an adhesive bridge and this has a wing that bonded to the back of the supporting tooth with very little or sometimes no drilling involved.
The supporting tooth is roughened and the bridge is fitted using a very strong dental cement.

Fixed Partial Dentures

A Fixed Partial Denture is a device used to replace missing teeth — attaches artificial teeth to adjacent natural teeth, called abutment teeth. Bridges are either permanently attached (fixed bridges), or they can be removable.

A denture is basically a plate with one or more false teeth on it. Partial dentures are either plastic, a mixture of metal and plastic, or a flexible material for example Valplast dentures. Complete dentures are normally plastic.

Fixed bridges are applied by either placing crowns on the abutment teeth or by bonding the artificial teeth directly to the abutment teeth. Removable bridges are attached to the teeth with metal clasps or by precision attachments.

Partial dentures may have clips (clasps), to help hold them in. Depending on where they are, some of these clips may shows when you open your mouth or smile. Complete dentures don’t have clasps and may need a denture fixative that can be purchased from supermarkets. Another way of securing complete dentures that can considerably improve the retention is to have ovderdentures secured to implants.


Crowns - Metal and ceramic

A dental crown (also referred to as a cap) is a fixed prosthetic object that is cemented onto a tooth. Only a dentist can remove it once it's in place. The main purpose of a crown is to cover a damaged tooth, but it also strengthens it, improving its overall appearance and alignment in the mouth.

Crowns are made by taking an impression of the tooth or teeth they'll be covering. Before this impression is created, dentist  first reduces your tooth's size so that the crown fits properly.The dentist may also place a temporary crown while the permanent one is being made.

Crowns and bridges can be made from a variety of different materials such as metal alloy or porcelain bonded to metal alloy. New materials are continually being introduced which increase the choice of metal free tooth coloured options that are strong and look very natural. There are new bridges made entirely from porcelain that are strong enough to be used for back teeth as well as the front.

Smile Designing

Basically the smile is dependant on the musculature and the presence of the teeth. But every person is not fortunate enough to have a beautiful smile . The answer to the above problem is the esthetic dentistry which has developed leaps and bounds with the latest technologies and materials. Prosthodontist is probably the best person to identify the quality of smile. Further he is also able to change the quality of smile with the recently available innovative techniques and the state of art restorative materials and to plan restorations, to harmonize with the smile. 

Harmonizing an esthetics smile requires a perfect integration of facial composition and dental composition. The facial composition includes the hard and soft tissues of the face. The dental composition relates more specifically to teeth and their relationship to gingival tissues. A smile design should always include the evaluation and analysis of both facial and dental composition.

Aesthetic restoration

Aesthetic restoration – is the most saving teeth restoring method, which preserves the maximum of hard tissues of the tooth, teeth remain viable. Tooth tissue layers, transparency, depth and form are fully restored and naturally formed.

During aesthetic restoration, layer by layer all possible internal particles are restored.

It is noticed in clinical practice, that the restoration carried out in bright dental lamp light, occasionally looks completely different when the light source changes. Therefore, while using restorative materials, the final restorations, closest to natural dental tissues, corresponding to the color components of the tooth, are possible.
