A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures performed, well over 14 million every year. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need of dental implants or bridges. Root canal therapy is needed when the nerve of a tooth is affected by decay or infection. In order to save the tooth, the pulp (the living tissue inside the tooth), nerves, bacteria, and any decay are removed and the resulting space is filled with special, medicated, dental materials, which restore the tooth to its full function.
At Chikitsa Child & Dental Care, we use one of the most technologically advanced root canal systems in gurgaon. With this system, we can start and finish your root canal in one appointment! As well, the rotary system that we use makes your appointment a lot more relaxing and the outcomes more successful.
We highly recommend placing a crown on posterior teeth which have undergone root canal treatment as with the removal of pulp and blood supply tooth becomes brittle and is more prone to cracking with heavy bite forces.
We at Chikitsa Child & Dental Care are trained to remove teeth gently and precisely, preserving the bony structures underneath. Depending on if they are removing a single tooth or multiple teeth, you have the option of being comfortably sedated during the procedure. We will gladly answer your questions about dental extractions and how you would like to replace these teeth.
Extraction is performed due to different factors
- Decay is so extensive that the tooth is irreparable
- A tooth shows signs of a vertical root fracture
- Gum disease and periodontitis has severely broken down the tooth's support structure and where bone grafting is not indicated
- When finances dictate a more affordable solution to a dental problem.
- When a tooth is growing in a direction that is unfavorable
Are you tired, stressed out, and moody because of interrupted sleep?
When a sleeping person stops breathing for 10 or more seconds, they have "apnea." OSAS, or obstructive sleep apnea syndrome, is one type of sleep apnea. Lack of adequate breath during sleep reduces airflow, causing the brain to tell the body to wake up and breathe. In some cases, sleep apnea patients only move into a lighter stage of sleep, while other times, patients wake completely. Many factors may contribute to airway blockage, from the size of passages and oral or airway structures, to swelling of passageways or position of the tongue.
The sleep apnea patient's snores can disturb a sleeping partner's rest, too.
The gold standard of care used to be a CPAP machine which is a Continuous Postive Air Pressure machine to force air to your lungs. It works, but research has shown that the compliance rate after 1 year of use dwindles to a meager 10%. Because of the bulkiness of the machine and the limitation of movement, it usually finds itself collecting dust in the corner of the room.
Even more effective, patients may now wear dental appliances that reposition the tongue or mandible (lower jawbone) to facilitate breathing . A Swedish study showed that the anterior mandibular positioning dental device (AMP) is actually more effective than surgical therapies.
At Chikitsa Child & Dental Care we have successfully treated patients with this appliance to the extent that snoring completely stops!
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth are the last of the adult teeth that emerge from the gums in your late teens or early twenties. These large grinding teeth, also known as the third molars, sometimes never develop in certain people, while in others, up to 4 teeth are seen, one at each end of the upper and lower gums.
Wisdom teeth usually cause no problems, but if there is not enough space for them to grow they can cause pain, swelling, infection or damage to other teeth. Surgical removal (extraction) of one or more wisdom teeth can help to resolve these problems.
The wisdom teeth removal procedure is routinely carried out as a day-case procedure with no overnight stay. Some patients can choose to have their wisdom teeth removed under general anaesthesia. This means they are asleep during the procedure. Many people opt to have their wisdom teeth removed under local anaesthesia, which means that they stay awake, but the area around the wisdom tooth is completely numb. Sedative drugs can be given with local anaesthesia to help you feel relaxed during the procedure.
Our services are provided in an environment of optimum safety that utilizes modern monitoring equipment and staff who are experienced in anesthesia techniques.
