Who doesn't want a perfect smile? While few people have one naturally, almost anyone can get one with the help of their dentist. In addition to orthodontic treatment, which can straighten your teeth, recent advances in dental materials and techniques offer near-perfect teeth that are almost as strong as the originals.

Things your dentist can do to improve your smile include

Rejuvenate your Smile! Are your teeth too small, too yellow or too crooked? Do you avoid smiling because you are ashamed of your smile? A smile rejuvenation can help you look, feel and act younger and healthier than ever before!

Do you sometimes avoid smiling because you are uncomfortable with the way your teeth look? Do unsightly gaps, chipped, broken or crowded teeth or discolored spots tend to make you cover your mouth and hide your smile? Imagine what it would be like to have a brilliant smile with straight strong, dazzling white teeth! This is possible with porcelain veneers.

Before dental implants, we were limited in how we were able to replace missing teeth. Options included fixed bridges, which often required the reduction of adjacent teeth to replace a missing tooth, or removable dentures. Implant dentistry allows us to replace individual teeth, without altering adjacent natural teeth. Dental implants help retain jawbone and anchor dentures, bridges and crowns firmly in place!

A dental implant is a small "anchor." It is inserted into the jawbone to take the place of your missing tooth root. A prosthetic replacement tooth is then secured to the top of the implant. Dental implants offer a more permanent solution for replacing lost teeth.

Regardless of what causes unattractive teeth, dental veneers may solve most or even all of your cosmetic dental issues, including:

Worn enamel: Over time, the thin, hard white substance covering your teeth (enamel) may become worn, dulled, and discolored. Such wear and discoloration may be natural or the result of a genetic predisposition; however, it is often a result of your habits (soft drink, tea, or coffee consumption, smoking, medication use, etc.

Wear and tear: Teeth naturally wear down as people age. Aged teeth are more likely to have chips, cracks or a generally uneven appearance.

Genetics: Certain people may be born with abnormal spacing between the teeth that grows wider as they age.

Uneven teeth: Uneven teeth can result from tooth grinding or general wear and tear.

Root canal treatment, also known as endodontic therapy, is probably the most maligned of all dental procedures, but the reputation of pain typically associated with "having a root canal" is really not deserved. For the majority of people who will undergo root canal treatment the process itself will be no more involved than having a filling placed.

As you read on our pages will explain for you the overall goals of root canal treatment, the treatment's individual steps, and also what other dental work might be necessary for a tooth which has had its root canal treatment completed. Our pages also discuss the costs associated with root canal treatment, what role endodontists play in providing this type of therapy, and why root canal treatment can fail.

One of the most commonly requested procedures in our clinic is teeth bleaching/whitening which is a simple, effective and with few side effects produce a brighter smile. We use the latest laser teeth whitening equipments to ensure quality and long term results.

There are a number of types of teeth whitening procedures. These are:

Non-Vital Teeth Whitening

Used when a single tooth discolors following a root canal procedure, effectively whitening the grey effect of a root filling.

At-Home Teeth Whitening

Special plastic foam-lined trays are made in the laboratory accurately fitting your own teeth.

In-Office Power Bleach/Whitening

Using trays similar to those for At-home bleaching, a specialized bleaching solution is applied in the surgery for 30-45 minutes.

The most important factor in oral hygiene is prevention. By ensuring good practices are exercised regularly, for just a few minutes a day, you can help to avoid oral pain, decreased confidence and potentially expensive treatments.

Preventative Measures

Diet plays a very important role in the prevention of tooth and gum conditions. Products that are high in sugar are particularly dangerous for your teeth. Sugar causes an excessive production of plaque which puts teeth at risk of decay; it also produces higher levels of acid that can cause erosion of the teeth.

Consequences of Poor Oral Hygiene

Tooth decay, gum disease and halitosis (bad breath), can all develop due to the neglect of oral health. Not just a health problem, bad hygiene of the mouth can have significant outcomes on social issues and career progression. The consequences of a neglected mouth can have a serious effect on our appearance and bad breath can affect us socially.

Tooth Decay

When a build-up of plaque comes into contact with saliva or food, a large amount of bacteria can develop. This bacteria can attack teeth and lead to the erosion of the enamel (the external layer of a tooth), and create a hole that will allow a breeding ground for the bacteria. These holes can cause a great deal of pain and discomfort and will need to be treated by a dentist.

Gum Disease

Gum disease is the most common cause for adult tooth loss and is one of the main reasons for the development of halitosis. Gum disease occurs when poor hygiene techniques result in the gums becoming infected and inflamed. The gums can bleed or even recede, exposing the roots of the teeth and putting them at more risk of damage.

Brushing and Flossing

Brushing and flossing the teeth should be an integral part of your everyday routine. The tooth brush should not be so firm that it is not pliable and cannot accommodate the small crevices between and around the teeth. Flossing is an additional method of ensuring debris between the teeth that a toothbrush cannot reach is removed and plaque levels are kept to a minimum. It is recommended that flossing should be done twice a day. An anti-septic mouthwash could be used to help freshen breath and rinse the debris from the oral cavity.

Toothpastes now often come with added fluoride, a substance that helps to protect teeth from decay. Extra care should be taken in those who are pregnant, elderly, those with limited physical ability and of course children. Children should be taught of the importance of oral hygiene and correct techniques for brushing and flossing at the earliest age possible. Prevention at this age can be reflected throughout their adult life.

Oral hygiene is important for physical, social and psychological needs. By ensuring a satisfactory regime is employed, many conditions can be prevented.

Prosthodontics is a specialty in dentistry involving the restoration, maintenance and replacement of natural teeth and their surrounding structures; in essence, the management of a patient's oral rehabilitative needs.

Prosthodontists function as the internists of dentistry, as they not only reconstruct but also guide their patients through the complexities of oral rehabilitation. They weigh benefit and risk and advise on the best outcome and long term prognosis for complex dental procedures. This might only involve simple bleaching and a timely referral to another specialist. Prosthodontics includes the creation of crowns and bridgework to replace missing teeth and to repair those teeth which have been ravaged by both time and disease.

Periodontal disease is also known as gingivitis and in advanced cases as periodontitis. Some of the symptoms of periodontal disease can include swollen, tender gums, bleeding upon brushing and persistent bad breath. In severe cases there may be pus from bacteria in pockets between the teeth and the gums. Without proper treatment these conditions weaken the gum tissue and cause it to recede from the teeth.

This can result in the underlying supportive bone shrinking, allowing the teeth to become loose in their sockets. This is called mobility and when severe can cause the loss of perfectly healthy teeth. The professional team at Rahat Dental is fully prepared to help patients in managing any aspect of their periodontal disease. We can advise and inform on the best oral hygiene practices for prevention and relief.

"Endo" is the Greek word for "inside" and "odont" is Greek for "tooth." Endodontic treatment treats the inside of the tooth.

To understand endodontic treatment, it helps to know something about the anatomy of the tooth. Inside the tooth, under the white enamel and a hard layer called the dentin, is a soft tissue called the pulp. The pulp contains blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue and creates the surrounding hard tissues of the tooth during development.

The pulp extends from the crown of the tooth to the tip of the roots where it connects to the tissues surrounding the root. The pulp is important during a tooth's growth and development. However, once a tooth is fully mature it can survive without the pulp, because the tooth continues to be nourished by the tissues surrounding it.

Orthodontic treatment is very common today. Nearly everyone had braces or some other form of treatment. Though it’s optional, few think of it as such anymore. Many people who are planning to undergo treatment don’t know what to expect.

Braces are the most common type of treatment. Impressions are done before braces can be put on. A gummy paste is placed in the mouth to get an impression of the teeth and gums. From these impressions, models of the teeth are made.

After impressions, the orthodontist makes the final decision about what will be put on the teeth (if he hasn’t done so already). It depends on whether the patient is in phase one or two of the treatment. Sometimes treatment only has one phase; other times there are two. When this happens, it’s usually because there is a problem with the bite that needs to be fixed before the teeth can be aligned. There are different methods for this, the most extreme of which is jaw surgery. In surgery, which usually costs around a thousand dollars, the jaw is broken and reshaped properly.

Oral-Maxillofacial Surgery is a surgical specialty which involves the diagnosis, surgery and adjunctive treatment of diseases, injuries and defects involving both the functional and aesthetic aspects of the hard and soft tissues of the oral and maxillofacial region.

More simply put, the oral and maxillofacial surgeon is the orthopedic surgeon of the facial region. He or she is an individual who addresses problems ranging from the removal of impacted teeth to the repair of facial trauma.

What are some reasons to visit an Oral-Maxillofacial Surgeon?

Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology is that part of pathology concerned with the scientific study of the causes and effects of disease in the oral and maxillo-facial complex, an understanding of which is essential for diagnosis and for the development of rational treatment and preventative programmes.

Conservative dentistry includes various kinds of direct and indirect restorations and is concerned with the conservation of single teeth in the mouth. Conservative dentistry means the restoration functionally and aesthetically of patient’s original tooth, including dental fillings (new fillings and replacement), root canal treatment, crowns, bridges, veneers, inlays and onlays. Conservative dentistry has three sub-specialties:

Operative dentistry

It is the prevention and the treatment of tooth enamel and tooth cavity. Operative dentistry is responsible to restore up dental condition functionally and aesthetically to an adequate level and also to have good oral health.

Cariology

It is the prevention and the treatment of the tooth surface.

Endodontics

It deals with the roots of the tooth and its disease. Even at a healthy tooth surface can be a problem with the roots which can be very painful. The dentist must remove the diseased pulp during a root canal treatment and make the necessary fillings, this procedure called as endodontic treatment.

Dental appointments for children are important not only to evaluate tooth and gum health but also to educate the young patient in how to prevent dental problems and maintain a healthy smile throughout his or her life.

During a check we will evaluate:

We will also speak with parents about how to care for the childs' teeth and also answer any questions they may have.

We recommend that children start their dental visits when their first teeth come in, as it is important to educate the parent or guardian on how to take proper care of their child’s teeth. Moreover; the child will get accustomed to seeing the dentist and will view the dental office as a non-threatening environment.

You are eating dinner and suddenly you are holding half of one of your teeth in your hand. Weakened by a fracture or a large filling, the tooth is now in obvious need of repair. Your dentist may suggest a crown, an artificial replacement of the upper part of the tooth, to restore the function and look of the damaged one. Crowns can be made from several different kinds of materials, and based on location, esthetics, and cost, the right one to repair your damaged tooth can be selected.

You have one or more missing teeth due to decay or an accident. This loss changes the look of your smile, your bite, and puts stress on surrounding teeth to compensate for the lost tooth. One option your dentist may suggest for replacing the lost tooth is with a bridge. The missing tooth is replaced with an artificial tooth connected between two crowns (caps) which are permanently cemented or bonded on the adjacent teeth.

The need for reconstructive dentistry is often the result of an accident or heredity, but is frequently the result of poor oral hygiene. Reconstructive dentistry is often desired for aesthetic reasons, but can be medically necessary if the problem interferes with the normal functions of the mouth. Sometimes, chewing or speech is hindered as the result of an injury or hereditary issue affecting the mouth. Overcrowding, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, jaw injuries, and other medical problems may require reconstructive dentistry.

Reconstructive dentistry may involve the construction of new teeth with a composite material, repairing or rebuilding bridges, or creating implants where teeth are missing. Sometimes, reconstructive dentistry is necessary to support and prevent damage to teeth that are intact and properly functioning. Full mouth reconstruction is the most extreme example of reconstructive dentistry and is sometimes foregone for a set of dentures.

General and restorative dentistry involves the diagnosis of all issues relating to the health and function of the smile, including the treatment and repair of broken, infected, or otherwise damaged teeth, gums, and tissue. General dentists serve as the primary care provider for their patients, managing their oral health care needs and coordinating treatment with specialists when necessary.

There are a variety of services that can be performed by a general dentist, including everything from preventative care to the replacement of missing teeth. Explore this page for a brief overview of general dentistry treatment:
