Dentistry, also known as dental medicine and oral medicine, is a branch of medicine that consists of the study, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases, disorders, and conditions of the oral cavity, commonly in the dentition but also the oral mucosa, and of adjacent and related structures and tissues, particularly in the maxillofacial (jaw and facial) area.
Med7 Clinic has a well-equipped dentistry department working under a team of dedicated and experienced professionals. We provide both general dentistry and cosmetic dentistry services.
Our expert team of general dentists finds solution for your dental issues as per your needs, preferences and convenience. A general dentist is the primary care dental provider who diagnoses, treats, and manages overall oral health care needs like gum care, root canals, fillings, crowns, veneers, bridges, and preventive education. The dentistry department of Med7 Clinic provides the general dentistry services like scaling & polishing, filling, root canal treatment, crown fixation and extraction.
Scaling & polishing
The hard tartar on your teeth cannot be removed by simply brushing. Scaling is the procedure used to remove this hard tartar. Polishing is done to clean away stains from the teeth, which may have been caused by coffee, tea etc.
Filling procedure is done through various steps like removing any decayed tooth material, cleaning the affected area and then filling the cavity with either tooth-colored composite resin, porcelain, gold or an amalgam alloy of silver, mercury, tin, copper and sometimes zinc.
Root canal treatment
Root canal treatment is important to repair and save a badly damaged or infected tooth instead of removing it. This treatment method involves mainly 4 steps like diagnosing the infected pulp, removing the infected pulp, placing a new root canal filling and finally restoring the tooth.
Our general dentistry department also provides crown fixation facility. This is the treatment method of placing dental crowns or caps on top of damaged teeth for protecting, covering and restoring the shape of your teeth. Crown fixation is helpful when the problem is not solved by fillings.
A tooth extraction is an outpatient procedure performed by a dentist. In some cases pulling teeth (removing a tooth completely from its spot in the jaw bone), may be necessary to preserve or improve your dental health.
Apart from general dentistry services, the dentistry department of our hospital also provides cosmetic dentistry services. It includes the facilities like veneers, Hollywood smile, teeth whitening, zoom whitening, laser whitening and home bleaching.
Veneers are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your appearance. They are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size, or length. This procedure involves grinding down the tooth structure, sometimes removing some of the tooth even past the enamel. It is an irreversible procedure that could be painful to go through and requires a local anesthetic.
Hollywood Smile is a complete prosthetic reconstruction of both jaws using caps, veneers and, quite often, implants. It involves placing dental crowns on all teeth, or at least on all visible teeth in both jaws, which means up to and including premolars.
All of us love to have white, glowing and clean teeth. This cosmetic treatment has become very common. It is a quick, non-invasive and affordable way to enhance a smile. The bleaches contained in the whitening products break stains into smaller pieces, which makes the color less concentrated and brighten your teeth.
Zoom whitening in cosmetic dentistry is a form of laser treatment. This method is used to lighten the staining or discoloration of tooth enamel. It is a simple, non-invasive procedure that usually takes between 45 minutes to an hour.
We offer laser whitening treatment, which is a specialized procedure performed in the dental office. It involves placing a concentrated bleaching gel on your teeth and then using a laser to heat it up, which will theoretically whiten your teeth.
Home bleaching involves you going to the dentist, getting a set of trays for your teeth, and then applying bleach into those trays to whiten your teeth. To do bleach at home, apply a small dot of bleach in the centre of each tooth as it corresponds on the tray, bleach the 10 most forward teeth of the upper and lower jaws, as they are the most visible and insert the trays after brushing your teeth for a period of 30-60 minutes.
Who don’t wish to smile beautifully?! Our dentistry department also provides the services of orthodontists. Our well equipped orthodontist department promises complete solution for all your problems concerning dental and facial irregularities. You can avail the services of orthodontists experienced and trained to diagnose, prevent, and treat teeth and jaw irregularities. They help you in correcting existing conditions and also identify problems that may develop in the future. Our service is available irrespective of age, from children to adults. Our professionals diagnose and treat misaligned teeth and jaws (malocclusion) and create a treatment plan that includes braces and retainers.
They also perform teeth straightening surgery, install dental appliances, such as braces, palatal expanders, orthodontic headgear etc. Treatment using braces not only improves your appearance, but has many advantages. It helps to improve your ability to chew food, alleviate speech impairment, reduce cavities and periodontal disease, and reduce the risk of injury from protruding teeth and grinding and chipping of teeth. You will also feel it easier to brush, clean and floss teeth. You will get a variety of options in braces like metal braces, clear ceramic braces, lingual braces and self-ligating braces.
