Preventive Care Dentistry

‘Prevention is better than cure’ goes the saying. Amongst the various specialties in dentistry, Preventive dentistry is the most important side of dentistry delivering healthier teeth and gums.

Preventive Dentistry is the branch of dentistry that aims at providing the care that is needed to keep the gums and the teeth healthy. It helps in keeping the oral cavity healthy thereby preventing the occurrence of bad breath, cavities, gum diseases or other oral diseases.

We at Mutti Dental Care Center offer all aspects of Preventative dentistry and encourage patients to actively seek preventive dental care.

Cleaning, Polishing and Fluoride

Regular cleaning and polishing of teeth are of utmost importance in preventing dental problems. Whether it is cavities or gum problems or bad breath, cleaning and polishing is beneficial for all.

Fluorides have a proven scientific track of preventing and even curing early decay. Fluorides have best results when they are applied immediately after the professional cleaning and polishing.

Pit and fissure sealants
These are one of the best preventive solution for dental cavities. Our teeth have natural grooves and pits in them which are very deep in some patients. These deep grooves can’t be cleaned by tooth brush and are most common site for dental cavities. If they are sealed early then more than 50% cavities can be prevented. Please ask for these to prevent dental cavities in your children. We have different kinds of sealants according to individual needs.

Orthodontics: Aligning teeth to proper position also helps in their easy maintenance.

Preventive dental measures to keep the teeth and gums healthy:

Brush your teeth twice a day with a fluoridated toothpaste
• Replace the toothbrush once in every three months
• Rinse your mouth after having sweets and other sticky food.
• Use other dental aids like dental floss, inter dental brush, mouthwash etc.
• Eat nutritious and a well-balanced diet. Include a lot of Vitamin B and Citrus fruit in your diet.

Visit your dentist at least once in every six months.

Wisdom Tooth Extraction Services

The Wisdom tooth (also called Third Molar) usually do not push through the gums until the late teens or twenties. Wisdom teeth are usually the last teeth to come through the gums. But if they are not through up to this age you must get them checked because it is very common for them not to be straight and then they can cause damage to adjoining teeth.

Possible Complications if wisdom tooth is not removed in time

Wisdom teeth removal surgery is best done early

AT Mutti Dental Center we have highly trained surgeons who ensure quick, painless, minimally traumatic and smooth removal of wisdom teeth.

Orthodontics and wisdom teeth
Many orthodontists believe that developing wisdom teeth can cause the front teeth to become over crowded, and often recommend wisdom teeth removal before or immediately after orthodontic treatment

General comment
Wisdom teeth removal surgery is not something people look forward to, but modern surgical and anesthetic techniques as used recently have now combined to make wisdom teeth removal surgery a much more acceptable procedure than in the past.

Root Canal Treatment Services

Each tooth has a soft tissue – the pulp which nourishes the tooth and provides its blood/nerve supply. Because of deep decay, injury, or gum disease, the pulp tissue becomes inflamed or infected causing severe pain. It is the role of the dentist to remove the soft tissue located in the root canals, cleanse the area, and finally fill the canals with a special material so that bacteria cannot re-enter the tooth to cause another infection. When the treatment is complete, the tooth is by no means “dead”. It receives quite adequate support from the surrounding tissues and may be expected to last as long as any other natural tooth.

Cast Metal Partial Dentures Services

We offer different types of dentures according to the clinical situation and patient’s needs.

Conventional Full dentures but with newer technology and materials which help dentures last for considerably more time for instance newer high impact dentures which can bear much more impact compared to the previous ones.

Cast Partial dentures wherever possible offer ultimate comfort to the patient because of their thinness and considerably smaller size compared to the other two dentures.

Valplast Partial Dentures Services

Valplast/Flexi Dentures offers flexibility whereas conventional dentures are hard and rigid. They are also unbreakable and can bear even more breaking stress compared to high Impact conventional dentures. They can be made for full mouth or few teeth missing.

Common reasons for removing teeth are:

- Severely decayed teeth that cannot be saved
