  Oral Surgery  
 
Oral Surgery is a branch of Dentistry which specializes in the diagnosis and surgical treatment of diseases, defects and injuries in the oral cavity. It includes procedures such as tooth extraction, gingivectomy, apicoectomy, dental implants, bone grafts, jaw surgery, diseases that involve the jaw joints, wisdom teeth removal and more.
Patients who are to undergo Oral Surgery are anesthetized. Recovery depends on the procedure performed.
 
  Implants
    A dental implant is a "root" device, usually made of titanium, used in dentistry to support restorations that resemble a tooth or group of teeth to replace missing teeth. Virtually all dental implants placed today appear similar to an actual tooth root and are placed within the bone. Dental implants can be used to support a number of dental prostheses, including crowns, implant-supported bridges or dentures.  
 
  Periodontics
  Periodontology or Periodontics is the specialty of dentistry that studies supporting structures of teeth, diseases, and conditions that affect them.

The supporting tissues are known as the periodontium. A professional who practices this specialty field of dentistry is known as a periodontist.

Periodontal diseases

Periodontal diseases take on many different forms. Untreated, these diseases lead to bone loss and tooth loss and, even today, continue to be the leading cause of tooth loss in adults.

Periodontology also involves the placement and maintenance of dental implants.

   
 
   
Introducing Painless Biological Dentistry
 
High speed electrical drills have been used by dentists since the 1950s. Did you ever think that your fear of dentists and the electric drills is unavoidable. You are wrong. Painless Biological Dentistry is now a possibility.

Applying the latest science and technology, cavities can now be removed with only light and water, using Biolase laser systems. With Biolase patients can expect healthier, more comfortable care throughout their dental experience, with options for treatment, diagnosis and prevention that are more compatible with the natural healthy state of the human body than conventional methods.

 
 
 

Root planing and scaling

 
  Scaling removes plaque, calculus, microbial flora, stains from the surfaces of crowns of the tooth, extending some part deeper below the gingival margin.

Root planing cleans the surfaces of the root and removes any infected surfaced, making the root free from microorganisms. It smoothens the root surfaces, to prevent adherence of calculus onto it.

Scaling deep teeth cleaning is done in any of the two methods – mechanical or chemical. Mechanical scaling includes the usage of hand or ultrasonic instruments that, which chips off the calculus or tartar from the tooth surface. Chemical scaling includes usage of chemical liquids which helps in attracting the tartar accumulations away from the tooth surface. It is not as effective as the mechanical cleaning method.
