Our Dental Services
Preventive Dentistry

At Dhanwanth Dental, we strongly believe that the best way for you and your family to maintain your oral health is to be proactive about the care of your mouth. While we use the highest quality restorative materials to bring back your beautiful smile, we are conservatives at heart and do our best to protect your natural teeth with preventive measures. We focus on educating patients on proper tooth brushing technique, proper flossing technique, the importance of fluoride therapy, the effects of adverse oral habits like smoking and chewing tobacco and the need for regular dental checkups. We also stress the continuing care of your oral health after the completion of treatment, because your home care is the single most important factor that determines the success of your dental treatment.

In addition, the Dhanwanth Dental team regularly participates in free community oral health initiatives to educate the general public about the benefits of maintaining good oral hygiene. Your mother was absolutely right, prevention is better than cure.

Full Mouth Rehabilitation

One of the challenges which a patient who needs complicated dental work faces is the difficulty in finding a dentist who can provide all the required dental services under one roof. At Dhanwanth Dental, we are no strangers to this and have been providing comprehensive dental care required for a full mouth rehabilitation for more than a decade.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are screw-like inserts which are placed in the jaw bone and serve to restore one or more missing teeth. Dental implants are also used to more effectively retain dentures, and patients who wear dentures retained by dental implants are very happy with the added security and comfort that the dental implants provide.

After a detailed planning phase which involves diagnostic impressions, radiographs and CT Scans, the dental implants will be placed into your jaw bone under local anesthesia. In certain conditions, we can go ahead and immediately restore these dental implants and you can walk out of the surgery with brand new teeth. In some cases, we will have to wait for a certain time period to ensure that the bone around the implant is healed before we replace the missing tooth or teeth.

Smile Makeovers (Veneers/Laminates)

Veneers are thin ceramic shells bonded on to the surfaces of minimally prepared teeth. Veneers can correct or camouflage severe discoloration, chipped teeth, gaps between teeth and malpositioned teeth. Two or three visits are all it takes for a complete Smile Makeover. You will also be evaluate the final result before the start of veneer treatment with a mock up smile makeover. Veneers can only be done when there is adequate natural tooth structure remaining for cementation of the veneers.

Orthodontics

Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry which deals with the alignment of irregular or crooked teeth. While most people are treated with orthodontic braces in their teens, we at Dhanwanth Dental believe the best time to be examined by a dentist is when a child is six years old. Frequently, we are able to avoid major orthodontic work in later years by using space maintaining devices to avoid overcrowding of teeth.

Thanks to recent advances, the metallic orthodontic brackets which we’re so used to seeing can now be replaced by a far less conspicuous ceramic, see through bracket, so braces don’t have to make you or your children self conscious anymore. Lingual orthodontics, where we place the orthodontic wire on the back surface of your teeth, completely out of sight. In certain cases, you might also be a candidate for the revolutionary new Invisalign clear orthodontic trays.

Remember, there is no age limit to start orthodontic treatment. Orthodontics for adults is very popular worldwide, and the orthodontists at Dhanwanth Dental will work to align your teeth beautifully to give you that smile which makes you look as young as you feel !

Oral Surgery

We deal with all your surgical needs, be it extractions of teeth, removal of impacted wisdom teeth, placement of dental implants and removal of cysts or other pathology.

Gum Surgery

Periodontal treatment is one of the most important fields in dentistry as it maintains the health of your gums and tissues, which is the foundation of your oral health. Dhanwanth Dental provides all periodontal services including periodontal pocket surgery, crown lengthening, deep cleanings, bone and soft tissue grafting and gum reduction surgery. The periodontist works in conjunction with the restorative dentist to achieve the ideal esthetic and functional result for you. At Dhanwanth Dental, we strive for preventive care, and most periodontal disease can be treated with regular flossing and tooth-brushing.

Crowns & Bridges

Crowns (caps) are used to cover teeth that are weakened by decay, severely damaged, chipped or discolored. Crowns are frequently on teeth required after root canal therapy on molars on premolars to protect them from fracture. The tooth is shaped to support the crown. Crowns can be metallic or metal-free. The advantage of metal free crowns, such as Zirconia and E.max, are the masking of the gray hue on the gum line caused by the silver colored metal. In certain situations, computer technology is also utilized to fabricate these metal free restorations at Dhanwanth Dental. Contact us to find out if you are a candidate for metal-free restorations.

While implant dentistry has decreased the need for bridges, we at Dhanwanth Dental still frequently use the classical bridge to replace a missing tooth. Two or more teeth on either side of a missing tooth are shaped to receive a bridge. Bridges can also be metallic or metal free.

Dentures

Dentures help to restore a patient’s smile and the ability to chew and speak clearly after some or all teeth are lost. At Dhanwanth Dental, we pride ourselves on using the revolutionary injection molded process to fabricate our complete and partial dentures, resulting in the highest strength, durability and esthetics. We also specialize in fabricating complete or partial overdentures, where we use dental implants to anchor the denture more effectively providing our patients with a greater sense of comfort with better function.

Teeth Cleaning

We at Dhanwanth Dental advise a professional teeth cleaning by a dental hygienist every 4-6 months. This procedure removes the deposits on your teeth which tend to build up over time and leaves your mouth feeling sparkling clean. A cleaning also helps reduce inflammation of the gums which occur due to constant irritation by food particles. A cleaning usually takes about 30-45 minutes.

Teeth Whitening (Bleaching)

Bleaching is the simplest way to brighten your smile. Discoloration caused by food and lifestyle habits can be lightened to reveal a glowing smile. Using the Britesmile technique, a bleaching solution is applied to the teeth and activated with a special light in the dental clinic. Alternatively, a bleaching gel is provided to you to be used with a custom made tray at home. Your teeth can become 5-6 shades lighter. Depending on your lifestyle, you may need to bleach periodically.

Root Canal Therapy

When a tooth becomes infected or damaged, root canal treatment is often the only way to save your tooth and repair the damage. Infection spreads to the bone and tissues and an abscess forms at the roots.

The treatment involves clearing the infection after numbing the tooth by a cleaning and disinfecting process of the roots. The root canals are then filled with an inert material and sealed. A crown has to be placed following the treatment to protect the tooth from further damage.

Fillings

At Dhanwanth Dental, we use the latest generation composite bonding materials to restore minor cavities and chipped teeth. Many of our patients also prefer to have old silver amalgam fillings replaced in their mouth with the tooth coloured composite fillings, and Dhanwanth Dental is happy to provide this service. Recent advances have introduced Nano-composites which have nano-meter sized particles for the best esthetic and functional result.

Oral Cancer Screening

Oral Cancer is a rapidly growing epidemic affecting India and the world and is proving to be a major health challenge. Frequently, pre-cancer and oral cancer is diagnosed at the Dental Office, and at Dhanwanth Dental our highly trained team always keeps a vigilant eye for potential cancerous lesions. As always, we stress that prevention is better than cure and we will give you friendly advice about the lifestyle changes you can make to possibly prevent oral cancer.
