Root canal is a dental procedure which helps in removing the entire internal parts, mainly pulp chamber of the
tooth. Rroot canal treat involves the filling of the prepared empty cavity with a suitable bio-compatible material.
This procedure is done and advised only when the tooth can not compensate restoring material in a small cavity on
the surface. The procedure involves the removal of the nervous elements of the tooth which have been infected or
decayed already due to microbial action or any physical pressures.
Usually, all root canal treatments at CHRC, are performed in a single sitting of approximately 20 minutes (unless
contraindicated) by our endodontic expert, to add more comfort and convenience to your overall treatment
experience. Up to four to six root canal treatments can be performed in a single visit but there are a few factors which
decide the amount of chair time and the number of seating –
INSTANT TOOTH WHITENING
- The position of tooth in the mouth, maxillary molars take more time than the mandibles ones.
- Number of roots present in a tooth and number of root canals seen in the roots, as each of the canal is to
be emptied and filled with the filling material.
- The length and thickness of root canals.
- Previous procedures – If the tooth has gone through some treatment earlier, like crown placement, then it
takes more time for the entire procedure rather than the normal tooth with some small filling.

Microscopic intrinsic stains and discolorations are present deep within the teeth, which give them an overall dull or
yellowish appearance. Such stains are professionally removed by our whitening experts with the use of a peroxide
based agent. The peroxide reacts with such stain producing substances thereby oxidizing and removing them
completely. The gums and lips are protected with special barriers to prevent their contact with peroxide.

Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that corrects teeth and jaws that are positioned improperly. Crooked
teeth and teeth that do not fit together correctly are harder to keep clean, are at risk of being lost early due
to tooth decay and periodontal disease, and cause extra stress on the chewing muscles that can lead to
headaches, TMJ syndrome and neck, shoulder and back pain. Teeth that are crooked or not in the right
place can also detract from one's appearance.
The benefits of orthodontic treatment include a healthier mouth, a more pleasing appearance, and teeth that
are more likely to last a lifetime.
A specialist in this field is called an orthodontist. Orthodontists receive two or more years of education
beyond their four years in dental school in an ADA-approved orthodontic training program.
Many different types of appliances, both fixed and removable, are used to help move teeth, retrain muscles
and affect the growth of the jaws. These appliances work by placing gentle pressure on the teeth and jaws.
The severity of your problem will determine which orthodontic approach is likely to be the most effective.
Fixed appliances include:
common fixed appliances,
braces consist of bands,
wires and/or brackets.
Bands are fixed around
the teeth or tooth and
used as anchors for the
appliance, while brackets
are most often bonded to
the front of the tooth. Arch wires are passed through the brackets and attached to the bands. Tightening the
arch wire puts tension on the teeth, gradually moving them to their proper position. Braces are usually
adjusted monthly to bring about the desired results, which may be achieved within a few months to a few
years. Today's braces are smaller, lighter and show far less metal than in the past. They come in bright
colors for kids as well as clear styles preferred by many adults.
Special fixed appliances —
used to control thumb sucking or tongue thrusting, these appliances are
attached to the teeth by bands. Because they are very uncomfortable during meals, they should be used
only as a last resort.
Fixed space maintainers —
if a baby tooth is lost prematurely, a space maintainer is used to keep the
space open until the permanent tooth erupts. A band is attached to the tooth next to the empty space, and a wire is extended to the tooth on the other side of the space.
Injuries to the face, by their very nature, impart a high degree of emotional, as well
as physical trauma to patients. The science and art of treating these injuries requires
special training involving a "hands on" experience and an understanding of how the
treatment provided will influence the patient's long term function and appearance.
- SILVER FILLINGS
A cavity calls for your dentist to remove the decay and to fill in the tooth area that was removed in order to prevent
further decay and strengthen the affected tooth. There have been lots of advances in modern dentistry that make
this process much more comfortable and use materials that are safer and more esthetically pleasing.
Earlier the trend was to have amalgam fillings (silver) or gold filling restorations. These fillings contain mercury
which is poisonous to the body as well as the environment. Also the amalgam fillings are generally not as
advantageous as composite fillings because they demand more of a tooth removal and are susceptible to
- PROFESSIONAL CLEAN UP:
Professional clean up / oral prophylaxis / scaling and polishing is essential at least once every six months
for all individuals in order to maintain the overall health of the oral cavity. It involves the removal of
plaque, tartar and stains which accumulate over a period of time.
- EXTRACTIONS / SURGICAL EXTRACTIONS OF IMPACTED TEETH:
Generally, most of the wisdom teeth are impacted (embedded fully or partially within the bone) and
require a surgical extraction. All surgical extractions at Our hospital, are performed by oral surgeons
under strict standards of hygiene and sterilization.
- REPLACEMENT OF 'BLACK – LINE' CROWNS / ARTIFICIAL LOOKING CROWNS:
In the previous generation, the crowns used for the anterior teeth were mostly ceramic fused to metal
crowns, with a metal base coated by ceramic. One of the major drawback of such crowns is the unsightly
black metal line seen along the border of the crown along with a mild metallic tint to the overall crown.
At Our hospital, only metal-free ceramic crowns are used for all anterior teeth. In such crowns, not only
does the metal appearance and black lines disappear but also, in combination with the right tints and
translucencies are made to look like real natural teeth and blend beautifully with the adjacent teeth. In
fact, it becomes almost impossible to distinguish visually a well done metal free crown from a natural
- RECONTOURING OF TEETH:
Minor alterations in the shape and size of the teeth are brought about to enhance the existing smile.
- RECONTOURING OF THE GUMS:
Sometimes the natural contours of the gums are uneven and unsymmetrical producing an unaesthetic
smile. Such gums are recontoured to make them look more pleasing and aesthetic.
- DEPIGMENTATION OF GUMS:
Black and brown pigments are occasionally present on gums. Such pigments are removed to produce
natural and pink aesthetic gums.
