What We Treat ?


  • Surgical Extraction of Teeth
    Surgical tooth extraction is a procedure that's used for removing a tooth which consists of additional surgical steps that are not required during the routine extractions. During the surgical extraction, the dentist makes an incision on a section of the gum tissue. Sometimes teeth develop in positions or ways which make it difficult for removal by a general dentist. Our oral surgeons have the expertise to address these conditions and effectively extract such teeth without damaging surrounding tissues. Our surgeons take a comprehensive approach to address the issue and offer a solution that ensures minimum discomfort, post operative pain and quick recovery.
  • Dental Implants
    Dental implants are replacement tooth roots. Implants provide a strong foundation for fixed (permanent) or removable replacement teeth that are made to match your natural teeth. A dental implant is the closest replacement to a natural tooth. While our experts perform routine implant surgeries, they are also equipped to perform advanced implantology procedures like sinus lifts. immediate extraction implants and ‘All on 4 teeth’, in a day technique. We focus on reducing the time between placing the implant and loading the implant (getting the tooth) to enable full-functionality and aesthetics to our patients.
    What Is Involved in Getting a Dental Implant?
    The first step in the dental implant process is the development of an individualized treatment plan. The plan addresses your specific needs and is prepared by a team of professionals who are specially trained and experienced in oral surgery and restorative dentistry. This team approach provides coordinated care based on the implant option that is best for you. Next, the tooth root implant, which is a small post made of titanium, is placed into the bone socket of the missing tooth. As the jawbone heals, it grows around the implanted metal post, anchoring it securely in the jaw. The healing process can take from six to 12 weeks.
  • FACIO-MAXILLARY TRAUMA
    Facial trauma, also called maxillofacial trauma, is any physical trauma to the face. Facial trauma can involve soft tissue injuries such as burns, lacerations and bruises, or fractures of the facial bones such as nasal fractures and fractures of the jaw, as well as trauma such as eye injuries. Facial trauma is the unfortunate result of an accident or injury. We pride ourselves in being one of the very few surgical teams with expertise in advanced techniques that result in near total reduction of all facial fractures including Jaw Joint (Condyle fracture) and Cheek Bone (Zygomatic Arch fracture). We specialise in achieving procedures that leave minimal scars so that our patients can get back to an active social life without any impairment in function or aesthetics.
  • BENIGN CYSTS AND TUMORS
    Finding a lump under your skin is alarming, but most of the time they’re harmless. Cysts and tumors are two common types of lumps. It can be hard to tell them apart because they’re often found in the same places. For example, it’s possible to have both ovarian cysts and ovarian tumors. However, there are a few key differences between the two. A cyst is a small sac filled with air, fluid, or other material. A tumor refers to any unusual area of extra tissue. Both cysts and tumors can appear in your skin, tissue, organs, and bones.
  • MALIGNANT TUMOR
    Malignant tumors have cells that grow uncontrollably and spread locally and/or to distant sites. Malignant tumors are cancerous (ie, they invade other sites). They spread to distant sites via the bloodstream or the lymphatic system. This spread is called metastasis. Our team has a high level of expertise in treating oral malignancies and as always, a good amount of discussion goes into planning the appropriate treatment to prevent spreading and complications to the extent possible. We feel treating malignancies aggressively is the key to success and firmly believe that the first chance is the best chance in treating oral cancer. We also believe that in treating malignancies the final treatment plan should be tempered with a lot of compassion for the patient as well as the family. We only treat cancer patients when we truly believe that our treatment will cause a very positive change in the overall quality of life for the patient. The major types of cancer are carcinoma, sarcoma, melanoma, lymphoma, and leukemia. Carcinomas -- the most commonly diagnosed cancers -- originate in the skin, lungs, breasts, pancreas, and other organs and glands. Lymphomas are cancers of lymphocytes. Leukemia is cancer of the blood.
  • Orthognathic Surery
    Orthognathic surgery also known as corrective jaw surgery or simply jaw surgery, is surgery designed to correct conditions of the jaw and lower face related to structure, growth, airway issues including sleep apnea, TMJ disorders, malocclusion problems primarily arising from skeletal disharmonies, other orthodontic dental bite problems that cannot be easily treated with braces, as well as the broad range of facial imbalances, disharmonies, asymmetries and mal proportions where correction can be considered to improve facial aesthetics and self-esteem.
  • TMJ Surgery
    The jaw joint (TMJ) despite being such an important part of the anatomy of the jaw is a neglected part because of the complexities associated with joint surgery. Treatment forms an orthodontist can alleviate TMJ symptoms in many cases. If your TMJ comes from teeth grinding or clenching, your dentist may recommend that you wear a custom dental appliance. Often called a bite plate or a splint, this appliance will keep your upper teeth from grinding against your lower teeth.
