What can I expect after treatment?
Bleaching of teeth is generally associated with unrealistic expectations. It is a very common misunderstanding that teeth become perfect white after bleaching. Generally the shade of the teeth gets light by 2 to 3 shades. Nobody can predict with absolute certainty the result before the start of the procedure. Individual results varies depending on the types and intensity of the stains and the quality of the enamel in the tooth. Sometimes, within the same tooth some areas respond to treatment in a better way than other areas depending on the thickness of enamel.
A natural tooth does not grow like natural hairs or nails. So, the only way to effectively fix the appearance of a chipped tooth is through bonding of certain tooth-colored materials to the tooth. These resins are a paste to begin with, so they can be shaped and colored to look like the rest of the tooth. Once exposed to a certain wavelength of light, the resin hardens into a permanent plastic. These materials are exactly similar to the materials used for tooth-colored fillings.
Bonding is among the easiest and least expensive of cosmetic dental surgeon procedures. The composite resin used in bonding can be shaped and polished to match the color and shine of the surrounding teeth. Most often, bonding is used for cosmetic purposes to improve the appearance of a discolored or chipped tooth. It also can be used to close spaces between teeth, to make teeth look longer or to change the shape or color of teeth. Sometimes, bonding also is used as a cosmetic alternative to amalgam fillings, or to protect a portion of the tooth's root that has been exposed when gums recede.
Besides the procedure has other advantage of getting completed in a single appointment.
However, bonding procedure has its own limitations. After receiving a composite, a patient may experience post-operative sensitivity. Besides composites have a tendency to pick up stain with time. They can chip or break over time if they are abused. It is therefore essential to follow proper home care instructions and get regular professional cleanings to keep the restored teeth healthy and beautiful.

Inlays / Onlays
Porcelain inlays and onlays are state-of-the-art, conservative dental restorations. Traditional fillings can reduce the strength of a natural tooth by up to 50%. As an alternative, inlays and onlays, being bonded directly onto the tooth using special high-strength resins, can actually increase the strength of a tooth by up to 75%.
Dental Inlays and Onlays can be thought of as dental procedures that are midway between a dental filling and a dental crown. They are normally used when there is not enough tooth structure to support a filling, yet there is also not enough damage to support a dental crown.
Materials for inlays and onlays
Dental inlays lie within the cusps on the chewing surface of teeth. A dental onlay, on the other hand, is more extensive than an dental inlay, and tends to cover multiple cusp areas. Both can be composed of gold, resin or ceramics. These pieces are bonded to the damaged area of the tooth. Traditionally, gold has been the material of choice for inlays and onlays. In recent years, however, porcelain has become increasingly popular due to its strength and color, which can potentially match the natural color of your teeth. Inlays and onlays are applied in two dental visits. At the first visit, the old filling, or decay, is removed, and the tooth is prepared for the inlay / onlay. The dentist will then make an impression of the tooth, and send this impression to a dental laboratory. This impression will be used by the laboratory to construct a custom-made porcelain, or gold inlay / onlay. At this time the dentist will place a temporary sealant on your tooth and schedule a second appointment.
People are fearful about ROOT-CANAL DENTISTRY TREATMENT Prices (Pune). They think it is very painful procedures in root canal dentistry, but it's a Myth. By this procedure one can save decayed dying tooth. If natural tooth is saved there is no need of an artificial tooth.
Pulp is the inner most part of tooth. Pulp lies in the hollow cavity within the tooth. This hollow cavity is called Root-Canal. The pulp contains blood vessels and nerves. It provides nourishment to the tooth through the blood.
The root-canal gets infected if the pulp gets exposed. This may happen due to decay, tooth fracture, attrision (wear & tear of the tooth), abrasion, corrosions etc. At this stage the tooth is very painful and the pain may radiate to head and ear. If it is left untreated the infection may spread to the surrounding areas of bone and gums and eventually causes death of pulp. At this stage tooth is very painful & tender and sensitive to hot or/and cold so it cannot withstand chewing forces. If left untreated tooth abscess and pus may be formed and face is swollen and infection can spread to surrounding head and neck region.
So to prevent all above complications Root-canal treatment should be performed. In this treatment the entire infected damaged pulp material is thoroughly cleaned out. Access to the pulp is taken by drilling into tooth. After scrupulous cleaning of the root canals it is filled by Gutta-percha or other suitable biocompatible inert material.
After RCT Filling
Root-canal treatment is a highly successful treatment. The success rate is as high as 95-98%.
Only 2-3% of cases may require additional treatment. Complication of root-canal treatment involves reinfection of pulp which can be treated by root-canal treatment, in some cases if the tooth is highly damaged and infected it may need removal (Extraction).
So the tooth can be saved by root-canal surgery and patients chewing ability can be restored.

TMJ (Temporo-mandibular joint) disorders are diseases of the joint that connect lower jaw to the skull. These TMJ problems can result from injury, aging, and poor dental behavior like frequent gum chewing, teeth grinding, and teeth clenching. Although the presence of one of these symptoms does not necessarily indicate the presence of a TMJ disorder, common symptoms of TMJ disorders include:
Clicking sound in the joint during jaw movement
Limited movement of the jaw
Earaches and headaches
Pain in the joint during hard chewing
Pain in the face, jaw, neck, or shoulders
Worn, chipped, or cracked teeth or fillings
Clenching or grinding
Difficulty in swallowing
Pain and sensitivity in teeth
Ringing or congestion in the ears
From a medical perspective, TMJ problems are classified into three main groups of disorders: muscle disorders, joint derangement disorders, and degenerative joint disorders.
Muscle disorders describes TMJ problems located in the muscles that control the TMJ. These disorders are often called myofacial disorders and are the most common of the TMJ disorders.
Joint derangement disorders are a group of TMJ problems that is caused by either: a dislocated jaw, a displaced disk, or an injured bone.
Degenerative joint disorders are a group of TMJ problems that is caused by degenerative changes in the joint like arthritis that destroy the cartilage that cover the TMJ and absorbs the shocks caused by such actions as chewing. Degenerative joint disorders stem from the wear and tear of the TMJ joints.
If you are suffering from any of these symptoms and are also experienced prolonged pain, it is highly recommended that you consult a doctor. Once, your doctor has confirmed the presence of a TMJ disorder, the next step is treatment. Depending on the type of disorder that you are suffering from and the extent of it, you will undergo specific treatment.

Is your teeth grinding sound bothersome for the people around you?
It shouldn’t be taken lightly because not only grinding and clenching cause severe physical discomfort, but this habit can also cause extreme damage to the teeth which can be painful and costly to remedy. People usually grind their teeth to relieve stress, anxiety or frustration. Improper alignment of teeth is also one of the cause.
Grinding and clenching the teeth can cause jaw pain and headaches, aside from damaging your teeth. It is a very significant cause of tooth loss and receding gums.
In order to treat the problem, it is advisable for the people to wear night guards during sleep to prevent tooth damage. Botox injection is also an excellent treatment for teeth grinding. Apart from this, reducing stress is also very important. Regular exercise and meditation is recommended for reducing the stress.
