    If we think about what attracts us to a person in general, the first thing that we can think of is a great, warm smile. A good set of well-aligned white teeth is an important aspect of this great smile. However, white teeth remain an elusive thing for most of us. Some of the common reasons for discolored teeth are as below.

    Hypo mineralized tooth structure
    Food habits
    Tobacco smoking/chewing
    Side effects of medication (tetracyclines, for instance)

    The degree of discoloration varies widely and also is hereditary. Whatever the reasons, there is the option of tooth whitening, which is effective with optimal oral health and good oral hygiene habits. Tooth whitening is not for everybody though, the following are the definite contraindications.

    Teeth with fillings: The bleaching agents work best on natural tooth structure. Whether it is a crown or a veneer or a bridge, the bleaching agent will not work on these tooth-colored fillings and composite resins. On the contrary, using bleaching agent on a tooth filling can produce uneven whitening. The teeth without fillings will appear lighter than those with fillings. If the person has discoloration due to fluorosis or any other reason, then it is ideal to complete any pending restorative work before initiating tooth whitening procedure. This should be allowed to settle in for about 2 weeks. After that, whitening should be undertaken which will ensure the best results and match with the composite filling/veneer/crowns. In people with multiple restorations, whitening can result in uneven coloration of the teeth and so veneers or crowns would be better suited than whitening.
    Sensitive teeth: Sensitivity is an indication that the dentin is exposed or is covered by a very thin layer of enamel. Whitening agents will not work very well in these cases.
    Poor oral health (gingivitis, worn enamel, cavities, and root decay): The whitening agent can irritate the gums or penetrate the existing decay or worn enamel leading to sensitivity. The tooth whitening agent works on the enamel, and as the tooth surfaces do not have enamel, they do not produce a whitening effect.
    Age: Hydrogen peroxide which is the most common bleaching agent is not safe for use in children below 16 years of age. The pulp chambers are quite high and the tooth is still forming, so bleaching agents are not to be used.

    While choosing to go for tooth whitening, one thing to bear in mind is that it is not a permanent solution to discolored teeth and might require repetition of the treatment. Having a detailed discussion will help set realistic expectations and achieve optimal results.

    Top 3 reasons for a couple's pre-wedding dental appointment

    You want a million dollar smile on your big day
    Long pending issues that rather be dealt with while you're working on looking your best -both within and without Avoiding unhappy toothaches during your happiest times be it wedding or honeymoon

    Do let me know what you think!
    Tooth fillings and everything you need to know about them

    Does it seem that every time you visit the dentist it somehow feels like you end up with another cavity even though you have been brushing, flossing and doing everything you could possibly do!

    Here are 6 quick tips on understanding how cavities occur and what you need to do to prevent them.

    #1 why do you need a filling?

    If food particles and plaque remain in contact with teeth for extended periods of time due to improper brushing or the nature of food like sticky or sweet, then a collection of bacteria accumulate causing toxins and acid release which dissolve the enamel. This enamel or the top layer of the tooth begins to discolour gradually depending on how much it has dissolved or weakened from light yellow- dark yellow – light brown -dark brown-grey and finally jet black. If not treated at this stage that portion of the tooth will chip away and become what we call a 'cavity'

    What decay looks like? when decay occurs to varying degrees this is what it will look like
    Discoloured areas especially on the grooves and valleys of your back teeth
    Dark spots or greyish black areas on your front teeth
    Chipped off areas that your tongue often goes into
    Holes which lodge food on your teeth

    probably the right time to get or replace an existing filling.

    What decay feels like? it starts with mild sensitivity on cold water transient sensitivity on eating sweet prolonged sensation on hot or cold things light pain on biting or chewing electric sensation or sudden sensitivity on certain foods constant pain that lasts for hours and will need medication.

    #2 how does the dentist choose a filling?
    Filling materials earlier ranged from silver amalgam fillings to cements like glass ionomer. But now the most widely used option is composite material, a kind of plastic that is soft before and hardens while chemically bonding to your teeth when cured with a uv light.

    # 3 how much will it cost? costs of fillings can vary widely on
    The material being used by the dentist
    Skill and experience of the dentist
    The size of the filling
    Amount of remaining tooth structure

    On average they start from as low as 1000 inr can go up to 4-5 times more.

    # 4 what to expect after a filling?

    A filling procedure if permanent and when done with tooth coloured composite allows you to eat immediately with no precautions. Your tooth is as good as new and you pretty much can't make out where the filing was done. You may feel symptoms ranging from mild to moderate sensitivity which should all settle within 48 hours. Bite adjustment may be needed if the filling is slightly over or under the level of your bite. You must not continue to experience any food lodgement or prolonged sensitivity after this procedure.

    # 5 prevention maintenance and after care
    Decay or cavities can be prevented by a variety of preventive procedures like applying sealants in the fissures of teeth to prevent food lodgement and fluoride application to attract more calcium and protect the tooth from bacterial acid breakdown. Fillings once done can be maintained by proper home care measures including brushing, mouthwash and flossing.

    # 6 how long will it last?
    Contrary to popular expectation where people think fillings are forever, a filling lasts anywhere from 3-7 years on average but needs annual regular checkups. Always look out for any discolouration, darkening, chipping under the filling this shows a breakdown or wear and indicates the need for replacement.
    It's 3 A.M. And you've had 3 crocins but your heads still blasting and your cheek feels like it's going to blow up! nothing seems to control this severe throbbing, mind numbing pain. How many of us have found ourselves in this situation where we are stranded without help and wish we had not ignored that nagging toothache?

    If you don't want to live with the looming fear of a tooth ache, the best prevention is a dental visit, but for the weak-hearted there is always hope.

    Dental pain or toothaches can arise without reason and cripple you at any point whether in the middle of the night, in a different country, in transit or in a position where dental care is not accessible immediately.

    So here are a few quick tips to ensure that you keep that dental pain away!

    Take down your list of dental must haves for those bad toothaches:

    Pain medication the first thing that will strike you when your teeth are aching is to pop in a pain killer, although its important to use one which is more specific to teeth. While paracetamol is the popular drug of choice we recommend you stock up on diclofenac derivatives more targeted to toothache, ensuring that there's no allergy for this medication is something that must be done.

    Clove oil an effective home remedy take a ear bud dipped in clove oil to ease off the pain on any open cavity where the nerve is exposed. It also works very well on those stubborn wisdom teeth.

    Ice pack-in case of trauma to the teeth, lips or face or if a swelling or bleed is seen placing an ice pack on your cheek is something that will not only ease off the pain but will also reduce the swelling.

    Salt rinses- if all else fails and all you have is a bit of salt then just put it in a glass of luke warm water and gargle with it to allay active gum infections.

    Gumex gum paint- a common astringent paint is a harmless alternative to reduce bleeding on gums after which a dental clean up can be instituted.

    Dental floss- tooth ache is often triggered by the lodging of food in open cavities between teeth. To stop this immediate trigger use a dental floss and remove the particle for instant relief.

    Sensitivity tooth pastes- acute sensitivity to extremes of temperature can be reduced temporarily by scrubbing in sensitive tooth paste and leaving it on the tooth for a few minutes rather than brushing and rinsing immediately.

    Needless to say a dental check up every 6 months is the best method of preventing an emergency and to curb the problem in its nascent stages.

    My advise would be don't ignore your teething troubles but if you do then we are still there for you, making sure you have what you need when you have those unexpected aches!
    Smile, you deserve it!

    We belong to an era where we have been blessed by technology in every sphere of life to make life more effective and comfortable.

    Unfortunately while technology has penetrated each and every field of health and medicine, few of us know about the latest strides in technology that dentistry has to offer. The good news is that we've come a long way! dentists now have the power to give you a gorgeous confident smile that can bedazzle everyone around you.

    Whatever it is that has affected your smile negatively, be it trauma, dental diseases or just bad hygiene or nutrition, has probably impacted the health of your tooth enamel and possibly killed your confidence and your ability to smile as well!

    But fret not, smile essentials has it all covered for you.

    Let's delve into the details and discuss the various treatments so as to give you a clear idea about the process of getting the perfect smile reconstructed for you.

    What are pain-free dental innovations?

    Pain-free dental innovations are often described as technologies used these days to treat dental health problems without the unnecessary torture that we earlier endured in the name of dentistry. Now these, innovations are useful in two great ways.

    First, they offer effective ways to minimize if not completely eliminate the dangers to your gums and teeth.
    Secondly, they aim at providing you extreme comfort whenever you undergo any type of dental treatment.

    Did you know?

    In the past, the treatment of root canals and cavities was among the most dreaded dental procedures due to the pain and discomfort involved.

    Patients would often fear getting a cavity or root canal treatment as they could not tolerate the excruciating pain experienced during these dental treatments.

    The good news now is that all of this has changed, and you would be thrilled to know that you can reinvent your smile with pain free dental innovations.

    What makes this technology unique?

    Pain-free dental technology involves the usage of a dental laser to replace the painful needles and drills that were previously used when carrying out dental surgery. This is the most effective and painless way of reinventing your smile-whether you have any cavities, gum diseases or even tooth removal. The best part about this approach is the fact that the patient also heals faster.

    Gum disease treatment-surgery?

    Earlier: periodontitis is the major cause of tooth loss in adults, and the only treatment that works for gum disease usually involves surgically treating or cleaning the gums-involving not only injections but also blades and stitches. With the advent of a variety of pain-free dental innovations, this treatment no longer required painful needles, blades or even stitchesnow: the entire procedure can be carried out non invasively by a straight flash of laser light used to treat infections which a blade cannot access without cutting open the gum

    Even painful swellings or tumors can be removed with laser surgery.

    Advantages to the patient are not just limited to during the procedure but even after since healing is faster, bleeding is negligible, and there is no swelling or pain which would hamper daily activities.

    Root canal therapy

    Now: root canal treatment has also become less painful with the use of multiple pain free innovations. We now use the dental laser to remove decay.

    Earlier: the earlier painful needles have been replaced by a sophisticated rotary technology. These equipments are not only pain-relieving but also enable the entire procedure to be executed within a stipulated time frame which would otherwise take multiple painful sessions.

    Comprehensive specialized digital diagnosis

    Earlier: the experience used to be multiple examinations at multiple centres before you can finally get a complete diagnosis of your dental problems.

    Now: at smile essentials when we say we promise to change the way you think of dentistry we not only provide you with every single aspect of diagnosis under one roof be it-individual digital x-rays, full mouth scans of your mouth jaws and joints, detailed intraoral pictures and even blood tests all under one roof.

    We also schedule allied consults for an entire assessment on your face makeover, be it skin care or eye care.

    Now that you've read all of the above, there is no reason to keep finding new excuses to call off your appointment with the dentist, instead make one quickly and get your smile reinvented with the experts at smile essentials.
    Your teeth crooked? read on to find out a perfect smile - not one of your strong suits lets change that now

    Growing up and getting comfortable with the way we look is always a process. Do you remember being the butt of jokes by mean kids and bullies about the silliest things be it your height, your weight, your gait to the shape of your nose or your crooked teeth they had to find one thing that you found odd about yourself and that's the one that would stay with you for life. In a shocking study that revealed the most popular or frequent trait that people picked on were crooked teeth in childhood, the problem we grew up and lived with this facial deformity probably avoiding the terrible looking braces which were the only option to straighten teeth out back then. How could you be expected to worsen and already bad situation before it got better? for some of us wearing braces would mean drawing, even more, attention to the flaw that we were trying to hide?

    The solution

    Well, those days are over and you no longer need to live with a less than perfect smile. In a world where we can get everything fake from implants to extensions getting your natural teeth straightened is hardly even cosmetic considered more of a routine natural procedure to improve the longevity of your teeth in your jaws.

    The benefits

    The alignment of your teeth besides making them look better by reflecting light more evenly giving you an overall brighter more impactful smile also has numerous other benefits straight teeth relay forces to your jaw more evenly reducing any harmful pressure in the long term straighter teeth also meet more evenly and reduce any wear and tear between each other they're self-cleansing as there are no more areas that lodge food thus preventing decay and gum disease straighter teeth improve your face profile by ensuring your lips and cheeks are in a position to best compliment the way you look without even using enhancing measures like botox etc.

    The method

    While the result we want is aesthetic, we can hardly expect a less than a cosmetic way of getting there! enter the world of invisible braces. Choosing from a variety of less than visible options of braces should be an informed and customised decision based on your starting position, the level of cooperation, duration of time and even your orthodontist's training. Here are some of the popular options.

    Ceramic (tooth coloured) braces

    This option is using the camouflage principle where the braces are made to almost merge with the color of your teeth so they appear less visible. The more advanced variety you choose the more they blend with your teeth appearing visible only to someone in close proximity. Being fixed these work within a very quick timeframe exerting pressure where needed and require training similar to conventional braces so any orthodontist is qualified to work with them.

    Lingual braces (behind your teeth) braces

    These are metal braces that go at the back of your teeth so that no one can see them except you can feel them. People who work in media or prefer not to highlight their correction opt for these and usually adjust very well to them except a few who find it inconvenient to speak and eat as the encroachment in the tongue space can take some getting used to. This option is also fixed and may take some additional time also needs more intensive training and even very good laboratory support.

    Invisible (removable plastic) braces

    This option seems to be catching on the most attention as the idea of wearing braces when you want and getting rid of them at a party or an important event is definitely appealing. There are multiple varieties in the market which even cost a lot but only a few certified ones bring you the results (but a word of caution) only if you wear them. High level of patient cooperation is solicited for these as they will not work unless worn for almost 20-22hours a day making them almost fixed. While these are entirely computer guided and generated your orthodontist needs to be highly trained and certified to make these work. Since they come as ready trays in a sequence opting to visit your doctor only once every 2 months is also a popular option for people who travel excessively.

    No matter the option you choose remember we promise beautiful braces to eventually get to beautiful teeth!
    Here are habits to implement today to maintain that perfect smile for you and your family tomorrow

    As women at work or at home, we are responsible for the health of those around us. If you are a compassionate and caring mother, daughter, sister or wife looking after the dental health of your family becomes imperative to their well being.

    Here are some useful habits that can go a long way in keeping you and your family smiling for years.

    #1 go soft automatic

    Rev up your brushing-use an automated toothbrush. This may be true for not only you as a woman but for your family. Make sure you switch them to an automatic or motorized brush with soft or extra soft bristles. This works best since it takes the guesswork out of brushing and improves your and your children's technique even if they're sleepy in the morning.

    #2 dental emergency kit

    Keeping a dental emergency kit loaded with some essentials like a basic dental painkiller (as prescribed), clove oil, some dental floss and a toothpick (not a habit recommended by us but when things get lodged and cause pain it may be the last resort)

    #3 vitamin check

    The best way of ensuring good tooth and bone health is to ensure good levels of vitamins vitamin d3, calcium especially if you're beating menopause and even iron, b complex to prevent anaemias which can be detected orally. Deficiencies of vitamins and essential minerals can make your family more susceptible to oral health problems.

    #4 gift a smile

    Gift your dependents a great smile be it preventive treatments for your young ones like our decay protection programme which ensures they never have to feel dental pain like we have, or the braces intervention campaign which helps guide teeth to proper positions at an early age. More questions about your young one's dental health

    For the elderly who missed out on a lot of preventive dental work can now enjoy the benefits of latest technology giving them fixed teeth instead of removable dentures.

    #5 start a trend-family oral health checkup

    Mark a day in your calendar a public holiday or the beginning of the year a time that you can easily remember and as a family gets an annual checkup to not only ensure that you do not suffer from any dental problems but also early detection of any upcoming medical issues can be done.
    Dentistry is not expensive, neglect is!

    Brushing is an activity that has been embedded in our systems since time immemorial. It's an exercise you start and end your day with, a routine that can sometimes pass by almost subconsciously, leading to bad habits and ultimately poor oral health and hygiene.

    Here are a few mistakes people commonly make when brushing their teeth.

    Not using the proper toothbrush

    The biggest myth of our time is to buy a medium or hard toothbrush to clean more effectively that's what causes the maximum damage over the years by wearing off healthy natural teeth with overzealous care.
    Using an anti-sensitivity / whitening toothpaste permanently

    A common mistake is to use a medicated toothpaste meant to mask sensitivity over a prolonged period. Such a practice only masks the symptom does not treat the problem and also leaves you vulnerable to cavities, gum disease, and bad breath since the predominant component in such a toothpaste is for treating sensitivity or lightening tooth color.

    The type of toothpaste that you use doesn't matter very significantly as long as you use the right amount and twice a day.

    Sensitive toothpaste are meant to be used for a prescribed period of time and whitening toothpaste must be used under supervision to prevent any potential damage to your teeth.

    Toothpaste must protect your teeth and gums both so a combination of paste that contains fluoride that protects your teeth from decay -and the gel based part has the antibacterial properties to prevent gum disease and bad breath.

    Brushing too quickly or too many times

    Most of us hate going to the dentist and find brushing an easier alternative but you can't exactly brush off old cavities just prevent new ones.

    See to it that you do not brush your teeth more than twice in a day. Excessive brushing can damage your gums and enamel. It will not take a lot of pressure to remove the plaque; hence most dental practitioners suggest brushing using a very balanced pressure.

    Studies show that brushing two times a day and about 2-3 minutes every time is perfect to maintain good oral hygiene. Most people make the mistake of falling short of this duration every time they brush. You can ideally divide the mouth into four sections and approximately spend around 30-40 seconds on each section.

    Incorrect brushing technique

    The strokes while brushing your teeth must be vertical and not horizontal. Many people are habituated with performing long horizontal brushing strokes; this leads to irritation and damage.

    Learn the right technique

    Hold your brush at an angle of 45 degrees to your gums and brush your gums and teeth with an up and down motion and short strokes. Don't use side to side strokes. Also, start brushing on areas that you have been ignoring till now, reach the difficult to reach inner portion of your teeth. Implement it as a daily ritual and you will attain perfection in it.

    Wrestling or brushing.

    Hard brushing damages the gums and is not good for you. Excessive brushing i. E. Brushing more than 3-4 times is also bad for you. You must always observe a balance in brushing which keeps your dental health healthy.


    Since unlearning a bad brushing habit maybe harder the easier solution is to switch from a manual to an automatic brush. Going automatic by using a battery-operated brush is recommended since it takes the guesswork out of brushing.

    It may take a while to get adjusted to but like so many other things which are designed to make life easier automatic brushes make dental hygiene very easy and can even reduce the frequency of your dental visits.

    Supplement your brushing

    Of course, brushing your teeth is only a part of a complete dental care routine. Mouthwash twice a day you should always rinse your mouth and keep it cleaned; otherwise, the germs from the teeth will stay on. Clean between teeth daily with floss. Tooth decay-causing bacteria still linger between teeth where toothbrush bristles can't reach. This helps remove plaque and food particles from between the teeth and under the gumline. Eat a balanced diet and limit between-meal snacks. Visit your dentist regularly for professional cleanings and oral exams.
    Visiting a dentist can be very daunting. We realize that and hence here are 7 reasons that will surely bring a smile to your face.

    So here are the seven reasons to make you smile

    #4. Walk out with an instant face lift

    Getting an instant cleaning and whitening is now as easy as walking in for a 15-45 minute session. So even if you're a last minute person getting that dazzling set before a party or your big day is ever so easy.

    Ever wondered what is the best diet to prevent cavities and avoid all that pain at the dentist?

    While food is something that no one can do without, there are some of us who eat to live and others who live and love to eat.

    The websters dictionary defines a foodie as a person who enjoys and cares about food very much

    The entire diet and nutrition industry has been conjured around this over or under obsession of food. We have the foodies who indulge in delectable delights and then we have the diet junkies who abstain from everything.

    No matter which end of the spectrum you belong to foodie or diet junkie you can't deny the importance of your teeth in enjoying your food.

    The ability to eat food is something that we easily take for granted up to the point that we are unable to eat due to poor dental or general health. Loss of teeth can have far-reaching effects not only on your face but also on your general health, lifestyle, self-image and mental state. 

    Impact of tooth loss

    Altered taste sensation
    Inability to chew
    Reduced or increased salivation
    Compromised nutrition
    Gastric disturbances
    Nutritional deficiencies
    Accelerated aging

    Can you imagine the world where you couldn't experience the pleasures of eating your favorite food? biting into delicious slices of pizza or that chunk of yummy chocolate or even a juicy piece of chicken for the meat lovers!

    While everyone seems to be on a diet of some sort these days here's what we call a dental diet or a few healthy habits that can ensure you maintain your pearlies and prevent cavities and pain till you're around!

    Eating for your teeth

    Milk and milk products have proven to strengthen teeth, whether at developing stages of dentition or even as we go through life. Cheese, yogurt, and milk in any form are rich sources of calcium which if not included in your diet should be substituted by a calcium supplement.

    Chewing healthy

    Soft synthetic processed foods reduce the efficiency and health of our teeth in contrast fibrous foods like apples, carrots and celery are all supposed to stimulate gums and teeth to maintain their optimal functions of chewing, sharing, and biting.

    Indulging your sweet tooth

    Eat all the pastries, chocolates and candy that you want but rinse thoroughly post meals so no remnants of these get stuck in your teeth to prevent cavities. Sweet dishes are the leading cause of cavity development.

    Liquid diet

    Drink plenty of water to ensure that the food particles get rinsed off your teeth and the acid content in your saliva is kept diluted.

    When drinking something sour like colas and lime juice make sure you have it with a straw. Acidic foods can deplete the enamel layer of your teeth causing wear and erosion leading sensitivity.

    Add a caption

    While science and technology have replaced teeth with artificially fixed substitutes through implants and state of the art replacement techniques, even as experts, we recommend prevention is better than cure!

    So a shout out to all you foodies, at least for the love of food make sure you look after your teeth or it can be a very bleak and hungry future out there! take precautions and prevent cavities that are so ugly and painful!
    What is painless dentistry and how can it not be fiction?

    Can you imagine walking out of your dentist's chair smiling after having watched your favourite show? can you imagine dentistry without the dreaded dental drill and those painful injections? or even a root canal without pain?

    Well these scenarios are no longer fiction but now an accepted fact.

    The age old image of the dentist torturer with his horrifying tools has been replaced with that of a caring professional using sleek gadgets to not only heal you but even completely transform your face, smile and thereby even your personality.

    Global technology now available in mumbai

    Dental research has successfully limited or eliminated the use of all patient discomfort devices associated with dentistry -the drill, the blade and the injection

    Eliminating the drill: ask your dentist for the drill replacing laser machines for fillings, root canals surgery.

    Eliminating the blade: the painless clean way to all surgical treatments with a diode laser
    Eliminating the injection: computer controlled dosage and microfine needles that eliminate the pain of regular injections

    Contemporary dentists aspire to make your dental experience a memorable one so you can choose to opt for dental treatment even when relieving pain is not your only motivation.

    Future trends

    A path breaking latest research from king's college, london proves that tooth decay might repair itself by using electric currents to reverse decay by re-mineralization (electrically accelerated enhanced re-mineralization, eaer)with calcium and phosphorus naturally present in the tooth thus further eliminating the need for a drill.

    How scared are you of root canals? what if we tell you. You no longer need to be?

    Root canals are easily one of the most dreaded treatments in the world. I have seen patients compare the anxiety they feel before a root canal to things like open heart surgery and labour. The last thing you want to hear on a dental chair is the diagnosis that you need a root canal. The horror stories surrounding this dental treatment range from gruesome to excruciating.

    This article is an attempt to dispel the mystery and pain associated with root canals and show you how far we have come from the horrors to the sophistication of the latest technology.

    From painful to pleasing

    What are root canals really?

    In its simplest sense a root canal is a deep filling done by cleaning the infection from the third and innermost layer of the tooth which is made up of nerves and blood vessels

    Our tooth is made up of 3 layers the first 2 are hard and confined layers called enamel and dentin when decay affects these it is very slow to spread and easy to remove and fill within one short session.

    The third layer may take 1-3 sessions to clean as the infection may have spread or collected in the supporting tooth structures.

    Why are root canals considered painful?

    The 3rd layer of our tooth is a nerve chamber containing soft nerves and blood vessels in communication with the rest of our body.

    This is the place that communicates pain to our brain and this is why when decay or bacteria hit this soft deeper layer we experience sharp shooting pain.

    Top 3 reasons why root canals used to be painful

    Improper or inadequate anesthesia to numb the inflamed nerve
    Mechanical instrumentation to manually pull out the nerve which we now dissolve and clean with automated machines
    Lack of the right medications to use within the tooth.

    What happens to root canal infections if left untreated?

    If this pain is suppressed with medication and not treated it can lead to an infection spreading within the bone which may later lead to a swelling with pus etc.

    If this infection is left within it can eat into the supporting bone and eventually infect or affect the adjacent teeth as well.
    A majority of us would rather undergo any form of torture than go to a dentist. There is some great news for the ones who are silently enduring their dental pains. Read on as we reveal how to get rid of your teething troubles and that too painlessly!

    #1-no more injections

    If the fear of a needle is what's keeping you away from the dental office then think again as we can now numb you with as little as just a paste, spray or solution that doesn't require an injection for its delivery. This revolutionary new technology takes away the prick of the needle and the pressure of the liquid expanding your lips and gums, instead, the solution enters by a digitally controlled dispenser going in drop by drop making it virtually undetectable.

    #2-no more drilling

    The sound of the drill can be one of the most known triggers for creating fear and anxiety in the patient's mind. When coupled with its vibrations, heat and pressure the experience it creates oscillates from unpleasant to downright unbearable. If the drill were replaced by a beam of light that can clean up decay, even the most reluctant people would open up to the experience. Once patients experience the difference they not only get the most urgent and necessary treatments done but also opt for preventive treatments.

    #3- blade free surgeries

    If you had to undergo a dental surgery earlier you may have had to worry about blood loss, pain, swelling, stitches not to mention the countless gory images that come to mind -but fortunately not anymore! a surgery can be completely pain-free with little or no bleeding, immediate recovery, no stitches and no swellings having you back at work or play almost instantly.

    #4-quick easy root canals

    Root canal treatment as a procedure is probably more dreaded than even extraction or removal of a tooth. The pain and fear associated with this treatment are due to the primitive way that it used to be done in earlier. Automated technologies make root canals completely painless, precise, quick and smooth in as little as just one session.

    #5-relaxing medication

    If these reasons do not sound convincing enough then pain relieving and controlling drugs before or during your appointment may be the solution for you.

    Great strides have been made in the field of pharmacology with medication that can block or control pain centres in the brain.

    We now choose from a variety of medication ranging from oral drugs to breathing gases through a mask, that can relieve your anxiety during the procedure to a point that you no longer perceive or detect pain.

    The only thing left to fear now remains a nagging toothache in the back of your mouth that you have been ignoring.

    As hard as it may seem to believe, truth is, that with the best technology, great ambience, and a host of distraction techniques- a dental appointment may actually turn out to be pleasant and save you a world of pain in the future!
