Procedures

Dental Implant

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root used to replace teeth that are missing because of congenital defects or have been lost due to disease or trauma. Essentially, a dental implant is a small, titanium post (screw) surgically placed into the jawbone and allowed to fuse with the bone. It serves to hold the dental prosthesis, which could be a crown, bridge, or denture. Successful tooth replacement can improve a patient's quality of life through improved bite and a better eating experience, and can serve the patient for a long time.

Crown and Bridge

Dental crowns, also known as caps, are custom-made permanent restorations cemented onto chipped/ broken/worn teeth or dental implants. Crowns are also recommended following a root canal therapy or if there's a large cavity that's too big for a filling. Crowns are used for cosmetic reasons, too. A dental bridge is a permanent appliance that bridges the gap created by one or more missing teeth. A bridge is made up of two or more crowns to fit into the open space where the tooth used to be. Dental bridges are an effective alternative to partial dentures. The bridge serves both practical and aesthetic purposes, enabling one to eat and speak better as well as restoring the smile.

Root Canal Treatment

A root canal is a restorative dental procedure performed when the soft center of the tooth, the pulp, is injured or becomes inflamed or infected. This is done by removing the pulp and disinfecting the canal followed by filling and sealing the pulp chamber to prevent further bacterial infection.

Periodontics

Periodontics is an interdisciplinary dental specialty concerned with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of the diseases of the supporting and investing structures of the teeth including the gums, and the periodontal membrane.

Mercury-free restoration

A safer alternative to an amalgam filling, to treat cavities or tooth decay. Mercury-free restoration procedures use composite dental fillings hence they are safer for dentists, patients, and pregnant women as well as better for the environment. With mercury-free options, patients can fill a cavity or protect a broken tooth with a restoration that blends in with their smile. In fact, it is also possible to color-match your teeth and restoration.

Complete Dentures

A complete denture, also known as a full denture, is a removable acrylic replacement for teeth, soft tissue, and bone loss in an entire dental arch. Complete dentures not only improve the aesthetics but also aid in mastication, phonetics, and bringing back the patient's smile, confidence, and self- esteem. Dentures are an affordable restorative solution compared to dental implants.

Periodontics

Periodontics is a dental specialty that deals with the structure as well as diseases of periodontium, the connective tissue that surrounds and supports the teeth. Here at Almas, we offer the best-in- class periodontal treatment in Kerala.

Periodontal Treatment

Scaling

Dental scaling is a non-surgical method used in treating periodontitis (gum disease). Other indications for scaling are plaque deposits, sensitivity, bad breath, and color stains on the teeth.

Periodontal Surgery

Surgical Extraction

Extraction is recommended when the decay is severe; advanced periodontal disease; the tooth has broken in a way it cannot be repaired, or when there is not enough room in the mouth to accommodate another tooth. In these instances, permanent removal of a tooth from its socket is the best option to preserve the health of the surrounding teeth.

Cosmetic Denistry

Your smile is your best calling card. If you’re worried about your teeth – because of spaces, chips, crookedness, or color – get expert cosmetic dental enhancement and makeover at Almas Hospital, the best cosmetic dental clinic in Kottakkal.

Teeth Whitening

Stained or discolored tooth is a common oral health issue in people of all age groups. Discoloration may stem from a variety of intrinsic factors like; medications, childhood illness, and aging and extrinsic factors like; smoking habits, excessive intake of coffee, tea, red wine, food, and beverages with dyes. Teeth whitening is an effective way of bleaching to get your bright, dazzling smile back. The procedure does not erode teeth enamel or inflict any other harm.

Fixed Orthodontic Treatment

Fixed orthodontic treatment is for cosmetics as well as functional improvement to correct malocclusion (improper bites). Fixed orthodontic appliances such as braces are most often used during adolescence. Nowadays, more and more adults are getting corrective braces on a portion or the entire arch.

Gum Lift

Everyone's gum lines are different - some are high, some are low, and some are uneven. Also referred to as crown lengthening or gummy smile treatment, a gum lift is resculpting or reshaping the gum line to erase gummy smiles. In many cases, a gum lift is an elective cosmetic procedure but it becomes a medical necessity if you have periodontal disease.

Veneers

Dental veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells applied directly to the teeth to correct imperfections including discoloration, chipped or crooked teeth, and gaps. Often made from porcelain or resin composite materials, veneers are permanently bonded to your teeth. Porcelain’s natural translucency truly mimics the enamel and gives your smile believability.

Teeth Reshaping & Bonding

Imperfections like slightly irregularly shaped teeth, tiny chips in the teeth, or excessively pointy cuspids can make you self-conscious. Cosmetic dentists often combine teeth reshaping with a treatment called bonding to change the appearance of teeth.

Orthognathic Surgery

Proper jaw structure enables chewing, helps speak, regulates airflow, and maintains facial symmetry. Patients suffering from misalignment or abnormality in the jaw may benefit from orthognathic surgery. An orthodontist can often correct less severe jaw issues, but when the jaw injuries are more serious, oral and maxillofacial surgeons take charge to move various components of the facial skeleton to achieve balance, good jaw function, and a comfortable jaw position.

Pedodontics

Pedodontics, a dental specialty that focuses on the dental needs of children from birth through adolesacence. At Almas, we have the best pediatric dentists in Kerala who are strong proponents of preventative dentistry. Our team has established a dental 'home' for every child so they can remain as relaxed as they can while receiving dental treatments tailored to their specific needs.

Cleaning & polishing

  • Children's diet and oral hygiene practices play a critical role in their oral health. Acidic foods and sugary drinks can accelerate tooth decay and gum diseases.
  • Brushing and flossing faithfully is one part of keeping baby teeth healthy and clean; the other part is tooth cleaning and polishing
  • Teeth cleaning, also called prophylaxis, helps keep teeth free from plaque build-up and allows the pediatric dentist to monitor overall oral health, which in turn can prevent future gum diseases and decay.
  • Tooth polishing is a standard part of dental cleaning. Polishing removes any remaining stains leaving teeth bright and shiny.

Behavior management and dental education

Behavior management is one of the essential skills of pediatric dentists. Appropriate use of behavioral principles helps the child in developing the skills and behaviors necessary to willingly undergo dental treatment, not hindered by undue anxiety or fear. The pediatric dentists at Almas Hospital, Kottakkal achieve effective behavior management through the application of various Behavior Management Techniques including communication coupled with a caring attitude.

Restorations and tooth-color filling of deciduous teeth

Early treatment of carious lesions in deciduous teeth is important for maintaining oral health. Nevertheless, about 25-30% of all carious lesions apparent in children ages 2 to 5 have not been treated with fillings. Similar in color and texture to natural teeth, composite, or tooth-colored fillings are less noticeable and more attractive than other types of fillings, providing your child with a confident smile. Our compassionate pediatric dentists and staff will help create an inviting atmosphere for your child. Regular cleanings and sealants can also help prevent cavities from forming.

Root canal treatment

Saving the baby tooth is just as important as a fully developed permanent tooth in adults. The premature loss of baby teeth can interfere with chewing, speech development, as well as alignment of newly developing teeth. Root canal therapy is indicated in case of severe toothache, a tooth is sensitive to different temperatures, and a tooth has been chipped or infected with the pulp exposed. Root canal in children is similar to how it is performed in adults. Our team of pediatric dentists in Kottakkal is adept at using anesthesia to block the sensation of pain and is experienced in calming the fears of young ones.

Crowns, stainless steel crowns

Dental crowns, also known as caps, are custom-made permanent restorations cemented onto chipped, broken, or worn teeth. Crowns are used in pediatric dentistry for various reasons: to repair or restore a decayed primary tooth, guide permanent teeth development, normal development of jawbone and muscles, and proper speech development Stainless steel or white facing crown is by far the most commonly used crown in pediatric dentistry. Stainless steel crowns preserve more of the tooth structure than other types of dental crowns.

Fluoride treatment

Besides brushing twice a day, flossing, and regular dental checkups, there is one more preventative measure our Pediatric dentists recommend; and that's fluoride treatment for kids. Fluoride is a compound made up of the natural element fluorine. Because it's a proven means to build strong teeth and prevent cavities, it's also commonly added to water sources and dental products. Fluoride treatment gives enamel a boost, making it stronger and resistant to acid attacks, and can reverse early tooth decay. Fluoride treatments are safe, and simple and come in varnish, foam, and gel forms.

Sealants

Non-invasive preventive treatments like dental sealants are one of the many services Almas Hospital offers its pediatric patients. Protective dental sealant is a thin, plastic coating painted on the chewing surface of premolars and molars. The coating acts as a barrier to keep bacteria, sugar, and acids away from the teeth, reducing the risk of tooth decay. Sealing the teeth can ward off the need for fillings or other preventative dental treatments, saving you time and money.

Space maintainers

Deciduous teeth, also known as baby teeth or primary teeth, have several important functions, including saving space for permanent teeth to make their debut in their proper places. If your child loses a primary tooth early because of cavity/decay, injury, or gum disease, the other teeth can shift, potentially causing crowding or tooth alignment problems. Dental space maintainers are used to saving space between primary teeth, guide permanent teeth and reduce the chances of orthodontic problems like crowding.

Routine dental check-up

Preventative dentistry is our specialty and routine dental exams are the cornerstone of preventative care. These checkups allow us to look for cavities and other oral health problems, as well as monitor teeth and jaw development in kids. Comprehensive exams let us diagnose dental problems early while they're still easy to treat using non-invasive, inexpensive procedures. Our dentists and staff make the dentist visit fun, engaging and educational. We help kids (and parents!) feel safe and at ease. Our goal is to protect your children's smiles, so it can continue to brighten your day!

Nutrition & Oral Health - Consultation

The cornerstone of effective dental care is providing preventive oral health education to children and their parents. Such educational discussions during dental appointments are critical because helping children off to a healthy start through a proper diet can initiate a lifetime of healthy eating.

RESTORATIVE DENTISTRY

Restorative dentistry involves dental procedures to restore the mouth and teeth to a state that is not only functional but aesthetically pleasing. Fillings, crowns, bridges, and dental implants are the most common restorative options. At Almas, we have the best general and cosmetic dentists in Kerala who are well known comprehensive dental solutions and natural-looking smile makeovers.
