Regular oral checkups

1. Regular oral checkups

  • Oral hygiene evaluation

  • All teeth evaluation

Checking your teeth for tooth decay is just one part of a thorough dental examination. During your checkup appointment, your dentist (or dental hygienist) will likely evaluate the health of your gums, perform a head and neck examination (to look for anything out of the ordinary) and examine your mouth for any indications of oral cancer, diabetes or vitamin deficiencies. Don’t be surprised if your dentist also examines your face, bite, saliva and movement of your lower jaw joints (TMJs). Your dentist or dental hygienist will then clean your teeth and stress the importance of you maintaining good oral hygiene at home between visitsile evaluation.

Teeth cleanup

2. Teeth cleanup

  • Treatment of bleeding gums

  • Treatment of bad breath

Teeth cleaning (also known as prophylaxis, literally a preventive treatment of a disease) is a procedure for the removal of tartar (mineralized plaque) that may develop even with careful brushing and flossing, especially in areas that are difficult to reach in routine tooth brushing. It is often done by a dental hygienist. Professional cleaning includes tooth scaling and tooth polishing and debridement if too much tartar has accumulated. This involves the use of various instruments or devices to loosen and remove deposits from the teeth.

Filling and Restorations

3. Filling and Restorations

  • Caries

  • Fractured teeth

  • Veneers-ceramic/composite

A dental restoration or dental filling is a dental restorative material used to restore the function, integrity and morphology of missing tooth structure. The structural loss typically results from caries or external trauma. It is also lost intentionally during tooth preparation to improve the aesthetics or the physical integrity of the intended restorative material. Dental restoration also refers to the replacement of missing tooth structure that is supported by dental implants.

RCT(Root Canal Treatment)

4. RCT(Root Canal Treatment)

  • Treatmetnt of extremly carious teeth

  • Abscess

A root canal is a treatment to repair and save a badly damaged or infected tooth. The procedure involves removing the damaged area of the tooth (the pulp), cleaning and disinfecting it and then filling and sealing it. The common causes affecting the pulp are a cracked tooth, a deep cavity, repeated dental treatment to the tooth or trauma. The term "root canal" comes from cleaning of the canals inside the tooth's root. Endodontic therapy or root canal therapy is a sequence of treatment for the infected pulp of a tooth which results in the elimination of infection and the protection of the decontaminated tooth from future microbial invasion. Root canals, and their associated pulp chamber, are the physical hollows within a tooth that are naturally inhabited by nerve tissue, blood vessels and other cellularentities. Together, these items constitute the dental pulp.Endodontic therapy involves the removal of these structures, the subsequent shaping, cleaning, and decontamination of the hollows with small files and irrigating solutions, and the obturation (filling) of the decontaminated canals. Filling of the cleaned and decontaminated canals is done with an inert filling such as gutta-percha and typically a eugenol-based cement.Epoxy resin is employed to bind gutta-percha in some root canal procedures.Endodontics includes both primary and secondary endodontic treatments as well as periradicular surgery which is generally used for teeth that still have potential for salvage.

Fixed teeth(crown and bridges)

5. Fixed teeth(crown and bridges)

  • Metal and Ceramic

  • Zirconia

  • Tilite

A bridge is a fixed dental restoration (a fixed dental prosthesis) used to replace a missing tooth (or several teeth) by joining an artificial tooth permanently to adjacent teeth or dental implants. A crown is a type of dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant. Crowns are often needed when a large cavity threatens the ongoing health of a tooth.They are typically bonded to the tooth using a dental cement. Crowns can be made from many materials, which are usually fabricated using indirect methods. Crowns are often used to improve the strength or appearance of teeth. While inarguably beneficial to dental health, the procedure and materials can be relatively expensive.

Removable teeth

6. Removable teeth

  • Partially missing teeth

A removable partial denture (RPD) is a denture for a partially edentulous patient who desires to have replacement teeth for functional or aesthetic reasons and who cannot have a bridge (a fixed partial denture) for any number of reasons, such as a lack of required teeth to serve as support for a bridge (i.e. distal abutments) or financial limitations. This type of prosthesis is referred to as a removable partial denture because patients can remove and reinsert it when required without professional help. Conversely, a "fixed" prosthesis can and should be removed only by a dental professional.

Complete dentures

7. Complete dentures

  • Dentures

  • Night guards

Dentures, also known as false teeth, are prosthetic devices constructed to replace missing teeth; they are supported by the surrounding soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity. Conventional dentures are removable (removable partial denture or complete denture). However, there are many denture designs, some which rely on bonding or clasping onto teeth or dental implants (fixed prosthodontics). There are two main categories of dentures, the distinction being whether they are used to replace missing teeth on the mandibular arch or on the maxillary arch.

Dental implants

8. Dental implants

  • Replacment of missing teeth on screw surgically placed in jaw bones

The primary use of dental implants are to support dental prosthetics. Modern dental implants make use of osseointegration, the biologic process where bone fuses tightly to the surface of specific materials such as titanium and some ceramics. The integration of implant and bone can support physical loads for decades without failure.

10. Extractions

  • Regular extractions

  • Surgical extractions

  • Surgical removal of wisdom tooth

A dental extraction (also referred to as tooth extraction, exodontia, exodontics, or informally, tooth pulling) is the removal of teeth from the dental alveolus (socket) in the alveolar bone. Extractions are performed for a wide variety of reasons, but most commonly to remove teeth which have become unrestorable through tooth decay, periodontal disease or dental trauma, especially when they are associated with toothache. Sometimes wisdom teeth are impacted (stuck and unable to grow normally into the mouth) and may cause recurrent infections of the gum (pericoronitis). In orthodontics if the teeth are crowded, sound teeth may be extracted (often bicuspids) to create space so the rest of the teeth can be straightened.

Orthodontic treatment/braces

11. Orthodontic treatment/braces

  • Treatment of irregularly placed teeth

  • Treatment of supraerupted tooth

  • Treatment of unerupted tooth

Dental braces (also known as braces, orthodontic cases, or cases) are devices used in orthodontics that align and straighten teeth and help to position them with regard to a person's bite, while also working to improve dental health. They are often used to correct underbites, as well as malocclusions, overbites, open bites, deep bites, cross bites, crooked teeth, and various other flaws of the teeth and jaw. Braces can be either cosmetic or structural. Dental braces are often used in conjunction with other orthodontic appliances to help widen the palate or jaws and to otherwise assist in shaping the teeth and jaws.

How orthodontic treatment works

Teeth are moved by placing gentle, controlled forces on them, as the orthodontist uses “appliances” such as braces or clear aligners to guide them to their ideal positions over a period of time. Tooth movement happens because of the breakdown and rebuilding of bone tissue.

At the end of “active” treatment (when teeth are being moved), most patients will wear retainers to give the new bone a chance to harden and support the new positions of the teeth.

It’s truly a complex biological process, and orthodontists master the multi-faceted intricacies of orthodontic treatment through years of study, including four years of dental school followed by two-to-three years of education in an accredited orthodontic residency program.

“Appliances” Used in Orthodontic Treatment

Orthodontists use a variety of “appliances” to move teeth and align jaws. Braces may be top-of-mind when you think about orthodontic treatment. But there are many more appliances that orthodontists use in treatment.

What kinds of appliances are there?

Here are examples of some of the orthodontic appliances used to move teeth and align jaws.


Braces are the most common appliance used is orthodontic treatment. Fortunately, they have come a long way. Basically, braces have two parts: brackets and wires. Wires move the teeth; brackets serve as stationary handles to hold the wires. As needed for an individual’s treatment, other components can be added.

Contemporary braces can be:

Stainless steel

Tooth-colored ceramic

Brackets are affixed directly to teeth. Wires are threaded through slots in the brackets.

Most braces go on the front of the teeth. Sometimes braces can be put on the backs of teeth – these are called “lingual” braces. These are virtually invisible. Not all orthodontists offer this form of treatment, and not all kinds of orthodontic problems can be successfully treated with lingual braces.

The wires on some braces are held in place by tiny rubber bands (“ligatures”), and come in a huge assortment of colors. Other braces are “self-ligating” – they do not require ligatures to hold the wires in place.

Clear aligners

People sometimes call clear aligners “invisible braces.” They are made of a transparent plastic-like material. They are made to fit the patient’s teeth at different stages of their treatment. Each set of aligners is worn for 1-3 weeks, at least 22 hours a day, before moving on to the next set. Each set is engineered to move the teeth incrementally, per the orthodontist’s treatment plan, until the desired alignment is reached. Tooth-colored attachments on the teeth will help aligners move teeth properly. Many, but not all, kinds of orthodontic problems can be successfully treated with clear aligners.

Palate expander

A palate expander is used when a youngster has a narrow upper jaw and there is not enough room for permanent teeth. The appliance works by widening the two halves of the upper jaw, called the “palate,” and increases the space available for permanent teeth. As the palate expands, new bone fills in between the two halves. For some patients, expansion may prevent the need to remove permanent teeth. Most patients will need braces later on, when they have most or all of their permanent teeth, to optimize their tooth and jaw alignment.


“Headgear” is the general name for a type of appliance that creates directional forces to move teeth and align jaws that braces alone cannot generate. Headgear contributes to the desired growth of the face and jaws.

Temporary Anchorage Devices (TADs)

Temporary anchorage devices, or TADs, are tiny implants used as a fixed point from which to apply force to move teeth predictably. They can be placed in many different sites in the mouth, depending upon the patient’s needs. TADs are removed when no longer needed.

Which treatment is fastest?

Thanks to advances in technology, just about every type of treatment is relatively fast. AAO orthodontists make use of the full range of orthodontic appliances – not just one or two – and will recommend the type they believe is best suited to your child and correcting his/her orthodontic problem. Orthodontists are uniquely positioned to make this recommendation based on their education and clinical experience.

To make treatment go as quickly as possible:

Follow your orthodontist’s instructions on brushing and flossing, and take your child to your dentist for a professional cleaning at least every six months during orthodontic treatment, or more often if recommended.

Watch what your child eats – avoid hard, sticky, and crunchy foods. Opt for foods that are soft and easy to chew.

Beware of sugary, acidic soft drinks including regular and diet soda pop, fruit juices, fruit drinks and sports drinks. Tap water is recommended.

Wear your elastics (rubber bands) as instructed.

Keep scheduled appointments with your orthodontist.

Which treatment is best?

The best treatment is the kind performed by an AAO orthodontist.

When you choose an AAO orthodontist, you can be assured that the doctor is an orthodontist – someone who first graduated from dental school and then went on for two-to-three more years of education at an accredited orthodontic residency program to become an expert in orthodontic treatment.

Removing Teeth

On occasion, it may be necessary to remove teeth to achieve a healthy bite.

Why remove baby teeth?

Sometimes baby teeth need to be removed because they are blocking the path of a permanent tooth. This can cause the permanent tooth to not come in at all, or to appear in the wrong place. Removing a stubborn baby tooth may be all that is needed to make way for the permanent tooth.

Why remove permanent teeth?

Sometimes insufficient space exists, or sufficient space cannot be created to accommodate permanent teeth. In order to allow teeth to work together to bite, chew and speak (“function”) properly, or so an individual to comfortably close his/her mouth, it can be necessary to remove permanent teeth to achieve a healthy bite.
